shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.”

Matt. 24:7

The number and intensity of earthquakes this century are at a level higher than any other

time in history.   By contrast in the years 1890-1900 there was only one major earthquake in the

world.

6. Trials and Tribulations

“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.” Matt. 24:9

7. Gospel Preached Throughout the World

“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.” Matt. 24:14

This has been accomplished by TV, radio, computers, missionaries, and bible offerings and translations in most languages of the world.

These 7 signs, like “birth pangs,” will increase in intensity and severity as the tribulation approaches.

“And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.” Luke 21:28
