Media Ignore Earthquakes

There's a phenomenon I've been observing recently. Incredibly, since January 22 there have been 13 earthquakes of 6.0 or above. What I find odd is that the news media haven't covered them except to briefly mention each one shortly after occurring, and not to follow up or mention them at all again.

I've witnessed an earthquake of 4.3 and that was so loud and tremulous that I thought a 747 had crashed right outside my window. If every 1 point on the Richter scale is 10 times greater than the one before, I can't imagine an earthquake of 6.0 or more. Yet the media are silent about these. How can it be that we've had THIRTEEN in just 4 weeks, and it's escaped notice???

Take a look at the chart below. I included a couple more of lesser intensity only because they happened in Israel and as you know, I watch Israel closely.

It's crucial to be observant, to be watching, especially in these times. Jesus rebuked the Pharisees because they couldn't discern the times. Here was the Messiah standing right in front of them and they didn't "get it."

I believe that in this generation, VERY few will "get it," because most just aren't watching. Sometimes I can relate to the frustration Noah must have felt as he warned the people over the many years it took him and his sons to build the ark.

"But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away..."
Matthew 24:37-39

When his disciples asked Jesus about the signs of his coming, he said, "Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.''
Luke 21:36

This isn't a suggestion, folks, it's a command. And your life could depend on whether or not you heed it.

That is incredible, Paula. I don't remember hearing about most of these earthquakes. Good on you for finding that chart!
