Matthew 24:4-14, Mark 13:8-37, Luke 21:11-38 Jesus predicts the end times of the earth.
4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. 10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. (KJV Bible)
The Pacific International Tsunami Warning Stations reported Tsunami waves rippling toward 51 countries and predicting 8 foot waves.
Chili’s earthquake had pulsed the start of a Tsunami that was heading across the Pacific Ocean on Feb 27, 2010. RED Alerts blared.
We saw destruction coming and could no nothing but watch. So we prayed. We call on the Name of the Lord Jesus who has the power to save us from destruction. Friends called friends, prayer chains went up, a “tornado of prayer” were shot to Heaven for our neighbors to be protected from damage and death. Emails were sent, asking Jesus to calm the waters and let the power of the Tsunami be swallowed by a whirlpool in the ocean and be nullified. Prayers for a calm ocean as if He laid his hand on the water and it stilled the waters. It was the Feb 27, 2010, the day of the Chili earthquake. Large waves hit a port in Chili. Tsunami alerts went out over the pacific coasts to all the residences.
A Tsunami acts like a rock being dropped in a still pond. It sends out rippled waves in a circular motion. touching all the land masses.
Californian folks didn’t listen and went ahead with their plans for an event. No waves were noted. Hawaii would be the first Tsunami hit. Sirens blared and people prepared for no food, water and gas. People moved to higher ground. More prayers went up to God. People knelt and prayed. Internets were watching the reports and cameras around the world were focused on a wave to come. We had confidence that God can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. We thanked God that we had not heard of any destruction.
Coconut Island, on the SW coast of Hawaii, had ripples of a 2 foot wave ran over it, rippled and swirled. No one was there and no damage. We thanked God for his mercy and grace that He had protected our neighbors in Hawaii.
We saw the warning of red alert be changed to green for Hawaii on the Tsunami National Reporting website.
Japan, Australia, Guam, Russia and 51 other countries prepared for the worst of an eight foot wave. Japan’s Tsunami management commanded the people to move to higher ground all along the west coast. They scrambled to higher ground. On Feb 28, 2010 an earthquake beneath the Pacific Ocean, 60 miles East of Japan, shook the ocean floor, sending wave shock ripples from its epicenter toward Japan and back toward the Tsunami. Like two quake ripples in a pond, the opposite wave’s energy charges lessen one another, nullifying the waves’ powers.
We continued to thank God for saving Hawaii and the American Coast. The Tsunami had only damaged Chile. No other reports of damage had been heard or reported. We praised God and continued to see God’s hand on the waters being stilled.
The associated press was reporting from all nations in the Pacific. Billions were watching in the time before disaster. The 900 mph Tsunami moving accross the Pacific Ocean was like the unseen prayers, continually, going up to God to spare our neighbors and countries. Every family who believed prayed on for safety and protection. God was listening. He calmed the waters in Hawaii and America.
Japan had a pier flood with four foot waves. It could have been from the earthquake 60 miles to the east. It was a small problem. No, Jesus listened to our prayers to still the waters, for the eight foot waves did not come. One peer with a four foot wave flooded. No coastal damage was done The waves had been stilled. The warnings were lifted at 4 p.m. on Feb 28, 2010 for the Pacific Ocean.
The Tsunami that never happened was a miracle from God. We sent a “tornado of prayers” to Him to save our neighbors. He answered our prayers. Jesus is alive and working in our lives. His Name is “I am” not I was, or will be. For He lives and works in our lives preparing for our present and futures if we call on His Name. The prayers of a righteous man availeth much.
Jesus said, “If you call on my Name, you shall be saved.”
We should all kneel and pray and thank Jesus for sparing us from mass destruction on this calm and peaceful Monday, March 1, 2010.
We are blessed by Him and thank Him with all our hearts for our friends and neighbors who are safe and back in their homes, snug and warm and safe, today.
