EARTHCHANGES: Scientists' Imminent Warnings & the Bible's Imminent Predictions

Are all these latest earthchanges the result of global warming, or increased electromagnetic radiation from more frequent sunspots in the sun, or maybe God's gradual withdrawal of His invisible hand from upholding the universe from self-destruction due to the natural law of entropy?

Alarmed by the frequency of major natural disasters beginning with the day-after-Christmas 2004 deadly transcontinental tsunami, hurricane Katrina's inundation of New Orleans in August 2005 closely followed by the revisiting of hurricane Rita, the deadly central American tropical storm followed by hurricane Wilma, and the deadly tri-country Asian earthquake, everyone is scratching their heads (including scientists) about how to interpret these signs and how to determine their cause.

The popular website LiveScience.com warns that it is just a matter of time before certain natural disasters of calamitous proportions take place in the U.S. Compare these with Jesus' words in Luke 21 - And there will be signs in the sun and moon and the stars, and upon the earth dismay among nations, in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves, men fainting from fear and the expectation of the things which are coming upon the world; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. And THEN... (continue reading Luke 21:27 in your own Bible). The Top 10 of these disasters are summarized as follows (click on titles to read more details at LiveScience.com):

1. Total Destruction of Earth
Okay, so nobody is spending too much time worrying about what to do if the planet is annihilated, but at least one person has seriously pondered whether and when it could happen. From being sucked into a black hole to being blown up by an antimatter reaction, there are scientifically plausible risks of an event that would render this whole list moot.
NOTE: The Bible says The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat, and the earth and its works will be burned up...But according to His promise we are looking for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness dwells... (2Peter 3:9-13)

2. Gulf Coast Tsunami
A fault line in the Caribbean has generated deadly tsunamis before. Up to 35 million people could be threatened by one in the not-to-distant future, scientists say.
NOTE: The Bible says And the serpent poured out water like a river out of his mouth after the woman, so that he might cause her to be swept away with the flood. And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and drank up the river which the dragon poured out of his mouth... (Rev. 12:15-16)

3. East Coast Tsunami
It seems no coast is immune to the threat of tsunami. For the Eastern United States, the likeliest scenario is waves kicked up by an asteroid splashing into the ocean. Astronomers already have their eye on one rock that could hit in the distant future, but the cosmos could hold a surprise, too.
NOTE: The Bible says something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea; and a third of the sea became blood... (Rev. 8:8)

4. Heat Waves
Heat waves kill more U.S. residents than any other natural disaster. As many as 10,000 people have died in past events. As urban areas get hotter, electricity systems are strained and the population ages, the risk grows.
NOTE: The Bible says And the fourth angel poured out his bowl upon the sun; and it was given to it to scorch men with fire. And the men were scorched with fierce heat; and they blasphemed the name of God who has the power over these plagues; and they did not repent, so as to give Him glory... (Rev. 16:8-9)

5. Midwest Earthquake
It has been nearly two centuries since a series of three magnitude-8 quakes shook the then-sparsely populated Midwest, centered near New Madrid, Missouri. Another big one is inevitable. Now the region is heavily populated, yet building codes are generally not up to earthquake snuff. Whatís more, geology east of the Rockies causes quakes to be felt across a much wider region. Shelves would rattle from Boston to South Carolina. Some homes along the Mississippi would sink into oblivion.
NOTE: The Bible says and there was a great earthquake, such as there had not been since man came to be upon the earth, so great an earthquake was it, and so mighty... (Rev. 16:18)

6. Supervolcano
It probably wonít happen for hundreds or possibly even millions of years, but nobody really knows when Yellowstone will blow again, destroying life for hundreds of miles around and burying half the country in ash up to 3 feet (1 meter) deep.
NOTE: The Bible says something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea; and a third of the sea became blood... (Rev. 8:8)

7. Los Angeles Tsunami
An earthquake fault just off Southern California could generate a major quake and a $42 billion tsunami that would strike so fast many coastal residents would not have time to escape. Add to that the unprecedented destruction from the earthquakeís shaking, and the situation would be reminiscent of Hurricane Katrina.
NOTE: The Bible says and there was a great earthquake, such as there had not been since man came to be upon the earth, so great an earthquake was it, and so mighty... (Rev. 16:18)

8. Asteroid Impact
Scientists canít say when the next devastating asteroid impact will occur. Odds are it wonít be for decades or centuries, but an unknown space rock could make a sucker punch any time. Many experts say planning to deal with a continent-wide catastrophe should begin now.
NOTE: The Bible says a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water...and a third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the waters, because they were made bitter [radioactive]... (Rev. 8:10-11)

9. New York Hurricane
Major hurricanes have made direct hits on the boroughs before, but the interval between them is so long that people forget, and officials fear they might not take evacuation orders seriously. The larger problem: It would take nearly 24 hours to make a proper evacuation of New York City, but hurricanes move more swiftly as they race north, so real warning time could be just a few hours.
NOTE: God in the Bible says So my hand will be against the prophets who see false visions and utter lying divinations...It is definitely because they have misled My people by saying, "Peace!" when there is no peace. And when anyone builds a wall, behold, they plaster it over with whitewash...Therefore, thus says the Lord GOD, "I will make a violent wind break out in my wrath. There will also be in My anger a flooding rain and hailstones to consume it in wrath...And you will know that I am the LORD... (Ezekiel 13:8-16)

10. Pacific Northwest Megathrust Earthquake
Geologists know itís just a matter of time before another 9.0 or larger earthquake strikes somewhere between Northern California and Canada. The shaking would be locally catastrophic, but the biggest threat is the tsunami that would ensue from a fault line thatís seismically identical to the one that caused the deadly 2004 tsunami in Indonesia.
NOTE: The Bible says and there was a great earthquake, such as there had not been since man came to be upon the earth, so great an earthquake was it, and so mighty... (Rev. 16:18)
