"The New Madrid (MAD'rud) Seismic Zone, midway between St. Louis and Memphis, has a history of shaking violently, about every 500 years. When it shook for three months in 1811-12, this was the western frontier, and the population was sparse. If it shook with that magnitude again, the devastation would make Hurricane Katrina look "like a Sunday School picnic."

"The New Madrid fault system is a series of faults several miles below the surface.""Suggesting these are just aftershocks and therefore (the New Madrid fault) is dead doesn't follow," says Susan Hough of the USGS. We have a seismic zone that produces earthquake clusters. The odds that it has shut off are pretty low."

"2/19/10 - Missouri's Governor convened a panel of officials in New Madrid who are on the front line of emergency response. From AP/KCStar:

Missouri state geologist Joe Gillman said an earthquake the magnitude of the 1811-12 quakes is expected to happen just once every 500 years. But a moderate quake with a magnitude 6.0 to 6.5 is expected to happen every 90 years, and the last one was in the late 1800s.

We are due, if not overdue, for a moderate-sized earthquake,” Gillman said. “Such a quake could devastate power lines and underground water and wastewater pipes, and many buildings could crumble.”

Recent seismic activity

We know the earthquakes will be increasing as birth pains. We see evidence of that- starting with the massive 7.0 Haiti quake, then the 8.8 in Chile, and most recently, the 6.1 in Turkey.There have been a total of 10 quakes in the past week that have been 6.0 or greater. There was even one in SOUTHERN SUMATRA, INDONESIA that registered at 6.8 but did not cause damage (the recent Turkey quake was only a magnitude 6.0.).

The three widely reported, destructive quakes occurred within less than a two month period. This does not even include the high magnitude increased seismic activity that is not even being reported-due to the depth or location of occurrence there has been no damage.

No doubt, earthquakes are on the rise just as Jesus warned us would happen:

Matthew 24:7 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and EARTHQUAKES IN VARIOUS PLACES. 8 All these are the beginning of BIRTH PAINS.

IF the Obama adminstration continues to "poke God's eye" as they have been doing, then America will be then not only unprotected, but cursed by God:

Zechariah 2:8 For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye.

Genesis 12:3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

See Is America asking for it?

We need to be repenting for our nation as well as ourselves. Judgment is coming from the just judge.  We cannot not know the day or the hour, but we can know the seaon.

We can tell Springtime is near as we see the blossoming of the trees and flowers and flitting about of the Robins. Accordingly, we can see the season of His return and that the coming Judgment of a God-rejecting, God-ignoring world is near.

We need to pray that we may be counted worthy to escape the wrath to come and to stand before the Son of Man.

21:34 And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.

21:35 For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth.

21:36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
