Prophetic Signs That we are in the End Times- 2010’s Disasters

Posted in End Times

Update: Most recent disasters were added to the list below on 9/3/10.

The scriptures provide us with plenty of descriptions of the prophetic events that will signal that we are living in the end times, and the signs that tell us of the coming tribulation. 

Let’s take a close look at the end times disasters of 2010 which show us that Bible prophecy is being fulfilled (this article will be constantly updated so as to be complete and accurate).

Jesus warned us, “So be on your guard; I have told you everything ahead of time.” (Mark 13:23, NIV)  Best we pay attention as world events unfold which are too telling to dismiss.

We can see the types of world events to look for by reading closely verses in the Bible books of Mark, Luke, and Revelation in which they describe the signs in the end times prophecies.

Types of Disasters in the End Times

Earthquakes, Lightning, Thunder and Famine:There will be earthquakes in various places, and famines.” (Mark 13:8, NIV)

There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.” (Luke 21:11, NIV)

“Then the angel took the censer and filled it with fire from the altar and threw it on the earth, and there were peals of thunder, rumblings, flashes of lightning, and an earthquake.” (Revelation 8:5, ESV)

Tsunamis, Hurricanes: “There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea.” (Luke 21:25, NIV)

Wars: ”Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.” (Mark 13:8, NIV)

2010 Severe Natural & Other Major Disasters

Let’s take a look at the natural disasters that have been occurring more frequently lately, specifically in 2010.  I’ve only included earthquakes in the list that are magnitude 7.0 or greater (data courtesy of the USGS).  It’s interesting to note that 2 of the earthquakes listed below are in the top 10 biggest and deadliest earthquakes of the last 100 years.

The major disasters of 2010 are listed below, from newest to oldest:

  • 9/3/10 7.2 mag earthquake Christchurch, New Zealand
  • 6/15/10 Flood and flash flood advisories in 12 US states: Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia, Iowa, Nebraska, North & South Dakota, Idaho (Advisory map shown below from National Weather Service)

Flood warnings Oklahoma and 11 other states


The End is Near – What Should You Do?

If you have not accepted Jesus Christ as your personal savior and been born again by believing in his sacrifice at the cross for YOU, do it now!  Say a prayer and give your life to God, thank him for sending his Son to Earth to die for us, and ask him to take away all your sins so that you might be saved. 

This is called being “born again”, dying to the flesh so that you can be reborn to serve God instead.  There are only two sides to be on when the day of judgment is here:  we’re either with Jesus, or we’re against Him.  Make the right choice today!

  1. AMEN!!! Well said 🙂

  2. VERY interesting post. I think this needs to be brought to attention.

  3. I live in the KC area and a local teacher spoke at the OneThing conference. He detailed many current events with probably 100 scriptures. [In fact i could send you his 30 page outline.] But my point is that we are living in exciting times, and God is speaking through so many ways, avenues, news stories, and great websites. Thanks for writing this post.

  4. With destruction and damage to roads bridges ports railroads buildings and other infrastructure as well as more than 28 000 people dead or missing the full disaster caused by the earthquakes and tsunami affected more than two dozen prefectures with a population estimated at over 15 million. Catastrophic disasters such as the recent earthquakes and tsunami in Japan represent a different kind of disaster in which tens or hundreds of thousands of lives are immediately at risk. Second FEMA spends too much time preparing for and responding to routine natural disasters and not enough time preparing for catastrophic natural disasters hurricanes earthquakes or volcanic eruptions which could have a national impact thereby increasing the likelihood that the federal response for the next catastrophic event will be insufficient.
