Hawaii earthquake: Magnitude 5.3 quake hits near Kilauea volcano

Blog note. Jesus indicated that ‘fearful sights’ (various natural disasters) would occur leading up to the time known as the Tribulation and Great Tribulation (a combined seven year period of great destruction on earth). Although these types of things have occurred in the past for centuries and thousands of years, they could be identified as the ‘season of the times’ due to the ferociousness of these events. They would be occurring in greater intensity, severity, frequency, size, duration, scope … just like the pains that a woman experiences in labor the farther along she is in the labor process. We are in the ‘season of the times’ that comes just before the seven (7) year Tribulation/Great Tribulation period
… 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).
… And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; (Luke 21:25)
… Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken; (Luke 21:26)
… This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. (2 Timothy 3:1)
Jesus is giving a series of prophecies about what to look for as the age of grace comes to a close. These verses are several 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.

Hawaii earthquake: Magnitude 5.3 quake hits near Kilauea volcano

A magnitude 5.3 earthquake has hit the island of Hawaii, sending shock waves in the area near the Kilauea volcano.

The Hawaii Civil Defence sent a message at 1.30am local time on Wednesday to notify locals of the activity, which received some attention from individuals on social media late in the night.

“Just felt a huge earthquake on east shore of Big Island. Shook for a good 10-15 seconds,” one local tweeted.

The Pacific Tsunami Warning Centre says that the earthquake itself occurred just before minding, an that it centre was near the Kilauea volcano on the main island of the state.

The quake was not, however, large enough to trigger tsunami warnings for the island.

“Tsunami NOT expected,” the US National Tsunami Warning Centre tweeted.

Still, locals in Hawaii were warned that there after shocks could still be on the way, and that residents should make precautionary checks for damage.

Among those damages of most concern are impacts on utility connections like gas, electricity, and water, according to the state’s civil defence.
