This morning my bed started shaking, actually the entire building. I didn’t know what was happening but I did not panic. I said what are You doing now Lord. I found out later it was an earthquake. The news said the strongest here since 1916. I don’t know but the Bible does say that before the Lord returns in judgment, world-wide chaos and disorder will increase. Jesus said that there will be wars and rumors of wars, famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various place. However, as Christians, we should not worry or be afraid. We should eagerly wait with anticipation for the return of Christ. Since we do not know the time or the hour, we should stay alert and prepared.The Bible clearly instructs us to be vigilant. We should seek God and submit to His will. We should live a life of purpose. We should continue to practice holiness and take every opportunity to do good, loving others wherever and whenever we can. If we do these things we can be at peace. Because we know the return of Christ will not be the end, but the beginning of the very best!
Love and Blessings…
“Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains. (Matthew 4-8)NIV
“Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.” (Matthew 25:13)NIV
“But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare. Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming. That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat. But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells.” (2 Peter 3:10-13)NIV

Thankful that God covered you and others during this earthquake. Like you said, we have to be prepared not alarmed. All types of things will be going on, but them of the household of faith will keep their eyes on the Lord. Love you and remain blessed.
