Press Release: Is the earthquake in Japan, a fulfillment of Bible prophecy? With all that is going on in the world today, Rev. Jim Whittington, of Atlanta, GA,
asks the question: Are we living in the last days according to what is written in the Bible? Matthew 24:6-8 says “And you shall hear of wars and rumors of
wars; see then that ye be not troubled; For all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation,
and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.” Rev.Whittington goes on to say
that there are other scriptures, such as Mark 13:8, which seems to come into play here, it says, “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom
against kingdom. And there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be famines and troubles. These are the beginnings of
sorrows.” Luke 21:11 also says that in the last days, that there will be great earthquakes in different places. And that there will be great signs from Heaven. The
world has experienced several major earthquakes in recent times, in Haiti, New Zealand, Chili, and now in Japan, and many other places. The wars that are also
going on around the world and the unrest in many nations also comes into the description of these passages of scripture. Scientists are even puzzled by the
unusual activities that are going on in the earth. Not limited to earthquakes, tsunamis, severe weather patterns, but also to many other unusual occurrences.
Violence also fills the earth today, and this also is one of the prophecies about the pattern that would exist in the world in the last days. II Timothy the third
chapter declares all of this. Rev. Jim Whittington does not claim to prophesy but only references the current events to Biblical passages.
