Earthquake Shakes East Texas For 4th Time This Month – Prophecy Corner

More quakes in Texas this morning. Are these natural occurrences, or is something more supernatural at work?

USGS Hits for East Texas during May

Fracking.. aftershocks.. signs of impending doom.. who knows, but 4 quakes in 1 month in East Texas is NOT NORMAL… fault line or no fault line, this is not something that happens every year, or even every 20 years. From a Biblical view, Jesus said there will be earthquakes in diverse places (Matthew 24:7 Mark 13:8). Also, another little know Biblical fact: All land masses on earth will be connected whenJesus begins his eternal rule on earth. In Revelations 22:1 John writes that there are no oceans or seas. The term “sea” is the Greek “thalassa” which is used of all forms of water. There will be a river that flows out from the temple in New Jerusalem that will water the land.

There is a lot of speculation as to whether this means there will be an absence of natural water on the earth, or if this means that there will not be any oceans separating the continents, as there are today. It is my belief that there will be water on earth just like today, but the bodies of water will be smaller and more localized, lakes and ponds fed by the streams and tributaries branching from the main River of Life flowing out of the Temple.

From a scientific viewpoint, It is true that due the amount of drilling occurring in Texas, fracking is not uncommon. For those who don’t know, hydraulic fracturing is the propagation of fractures in a rock layer caused by the presence of a pressurized fluid. Induced hydraulic fracturing or hydrofracking, commonly known as fracking, is a technique used to release petroleum, natural gas (including shale gas, tight gas and coal seam gas), or other substances for extraction. This type of fracturing creates fractures from a wellbore drilled into reservoir rock formations.  This process can create small quakes as the fractured rocks give way to the mass of earth on top of it

So, could these tremors be caused by fracking? Is the earth preparing for her makeover? To give a definitive answer is almost impossible. It is for this reason that as Christians we need to make sure we do not buy into all the hype, but keep a cool head and consult the Word of God in everything, and be prepared for anything. We know that we will one day be raptured up to safety while the rest of the world is immersed in its own evil. Until that time, however, we are still subjected to the whim and will of God.

  1. Our world appears to be experiencing quite a few signs of old age these days…

    • In the Apocrypha the book of 2 Esdras (who is the same Biblical Ezra) has a vision concerning the End of Days. In it Jesus tells him to pay attention to the earth because like a mother ready for labor, the earth will show signs of her labor. It says that the earth will undergo 12 seasons, 11 1/2 of which have already passed, it was pretty eerie the first time I read it.
