Bog note: And great earthquakes shall be in diverse places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. (Luke 21:11). Jesus is giving a series of prophecies about what to look for as the age of grace comes to a close. This verse from Luke is one of many such prophecies from throughout the Bible. 2017 was the worst year in recorded history for the intensity, frequency, severity, duration and occurrence of a large number of severe natural disasters worldwide. Earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, typhoons, cyclones, torrential flooding, unprecedented wildfires in unusual places, devastating droughts, excessive/scorching heat setting records everywhere, record snowfalls in Europe and Russia. Snow in the Arabia. This list can go on. Most studied eschatologists believe these ‘fearful sights’ and massive natural disasters are all part of the ‘CONVERGENCE’ of signs that this Biblical and prophetic age is closing. Most people who study prophecy are familiar with the routine reference(s) made that these things will be like a woman having labor pains that occur in greater severity, frequency, size and duration prior to giving birth. End of note.

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) – A powerful earthquake struck Fiji on Thursday morning, but there’s no tsunami threat to Hawaii, according to the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center.
The temblor initially measured at a magnitude of 8.1, but was later downgraded to a 7.8.
It struck close to Suva, Fiji around 5:50 a.m. Hawaii time, the U.S. Geological Survey said.
PTWC officials said the quake was too deep — about 400 miles — to generate a tsunami.
Another quake, which appeared to be an aftershock, struck in the same region about an hour later. That one measured at a magnitude of 5.5, the USGS said.
Officials add they are not anticipating a tsunami for Fiji, but they are closely monitoring.
It’s not known if there were any injuries or damage as a result of the quake.
