Awake!

“The earthquake has caused major damage in broad areas in northern Japan,” Prime Minister Naoto Kan said at a news conference. (PhilStar)

What's next then? Japan, one of the Asia's progressive countries was not spared to the nature's wrath! I saluted how Japan gave emphasis to doing and making things based on what is standard. However, some of their affected architectural designs that were earthquake proof were now torn down into rubbles. So sad.

Unlike the 9/11 Terrorist Attack in the land of milk and honey, this land of striking scenic beauty was shaken not with human factor but with nature.

This is a wake up call for all of us.

In the Science point of view, the Mother Earth is slowly deteriorating and very much vulnerable to natural destruction. 

But all of these occurrences were already predicted even before these were preconceived by any human minds in our generation.

This was already revealed in the Holy Bible, the very Word of our Almighty God, the Creator.

Matthew 24
(The Destruction of the Temple and Signs of the End Times)
 
 1 Jesus left the temple and was walking away when his disciples came up to him to call his attention to its buildings. 2 “Do you see all these things?” he asked. “Truly I tell you, not one stone here will be left on another; every one will be thrown down.” 3 As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. “Tell us,” they said, “when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?”

I have read this passage many times before and many times also it shivers me even by just merely thinking about it... 

Indeed, the sign of the end of the age slowly revealed:
 4 Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many. 6 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. 7Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of birth pains.
Wars, famines, earthquakes? They are all happening now. And these are JUST THE BEGINNING. The crisis in the Middle East, the tsunami threat on Japan's neighboring countries and the shortage of food supplies that the world experiences right now have just started. Let us all be aware.

If we do not read His Word, we will have no idea about the truth. We could just simply blame it to the global climate change. Somehow, they are inter-related. As for me, the Science has just uncover what was written in the Bible thousands of years ago.

But all these things shall come to pass as we expectantly be waiting for the coming of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

As His Word says:

Romans 13:11
(The Day Is Near)
 11 And do this, understanding the present time: The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed.

Let us keep ourselves alive, alert and awake with His Words.
