Hurricanes – Typhoons – Tornadoes
Floods – Tsunamis – Earthquakes
Plus Terrorist attacks
It seems that in the past few months of this year in 2010 that the world has had many different warnings and many distress signals.
There are hurricane warnings (Atlantic), tornado warnings, typhoon warnings (Pacific) and now tsunami warnings with great tidal waves. There are warnings about influenzas and diseases. Recently there have been many earthquakes which came without warning. In the last few weeks, we have seen devastating earthquakes. An earthquake measuring 6.0 hit Turkey shortly after major quakes in Chile (8.8) and Haiti, (7.0). Taiwan saw widespread power cuts after being rattled by a magnitude 6.4 earthquake. Because of these national disasters, thousands were killed and many more thousands were injured, while cities were without power, water and food! Seismologists estimate that there are tens of thousands of large and small earthquakes a year, but many of them are not felt because they are deep below the surface of the earth or in the middle of wide oceans.
“Of the major earthquakes, there are around 18 earthquakes a year of 7.0 or higher,” said Don Blakeman, U.S. Geophysicist. “I think we are at a time now where we are seeing clusters of them happening at the same time.” Jon Davidson (Earth Sciences – Durham Univ U.K), said the Chilean earthquake may have been triggered by aftershocks from the Haiti earthquakes.
One earthquake can create many others. “There are a large number of earthquakes taking place everywhere in the world all the time,” he said. “However most of them are deep below the surface or are in remote areas, and aren’t reported.” Many earthquakes are unknown.
Warning Signals – While Haiti sent out a “mayday” plea for help, Chile soon sent out an “SOS” for help. What is the difference in a “mayday” and a “SOS.” Mayday is a voice distress (help) call used only in cases of “grave and imminent danger.” The correct way to signal mayday consists of three repetitions of the word “mayday,” then the name of the boat, airplane, or person and its radio call sign. Why do we use the word “mayday”? The origin of “mayday” is an anglicized version of the French m’aidez (help me) or m’aider (to render help to me). SOS is a non-voice distress signal. In Morse Code (flashing light) it is three dits (short), three dahs (long), three dits (short). SOS most commonly means “Save Our Ship” and/or “Save Our Souls.” A modern distress or emergency call is 911 (“nine – one – one”). This saves valuable time and replaces the old system of dialing “0” (operator) and asking to be connected to an emergency service.
Storm Warnings – Loud sirens blast, radios beep, TV lists warnings and sometimes people go door-to-door to warn of coming disasters. In many cities people are warned to evacuate before the storm comes. The warning goes out across the city to run, walk, drive, fly, get on a train or bus, and flee from the city because of a coming hurricane. During a tornado, people should seek safety in a basement or an underground shelter. Don’t Ignore Warnings!
It seems there are always some who just will not listen or leave. They ignore the warnings. People cannot be forced, but only warned. There is more wisdom in heeding the warnings than being swept away in a tornado or a tidal wave. When the storm hits, it is too late to flee. You need to take your family to safety and shelter from the coming storm. You need to prepare to meet your God! All will stand before an inescapable Lord.
The Bible is sending out a “mayday” “SOS,” and “911” warning all people. Jesus Christ is coming. The Lord could come while you are reading this tract. Some may scoff and sneer, but so did the people before the flood in the days of Noah. The Bible sirens are blasting, and Christians are pleading for you to heed the warning and escape the coming storm of Tribulation that will be worse than any storm ever known.
“…Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? And Jesus answered…ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars…nation shall rise against nation …and there shall be famines…pestilences… earthquakes, in divers (many) places… And this gospel…shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come…Then let them …in Judaea flee into the mountains… For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.” – Matthew 24:3-21
The storm of Tribulation is coming. The Bible sirens are warning of the coming storm of Tribulation which will be the worst since the beginning of time. Jesus Christ is coming for all those “in Christ” (not “in church”). There are only two groups of people on this earth. Those “in Christ” (saved) and those “not in Christ” (unsaved). All without Christ will be left behind to face the worst storm ever known.
“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout…the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we (in Christ) which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them (in Christ) in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air (not on earth) and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.”
– I Thessalonians 4:16-18.
He is coming and I will be going!
In old days people would run to a storm shelter to escape coming tornadoes. Before the door was closed the father looked and made sure all the family was safe inside. He then closed the door as the storm approached. Now, let me ask you a question. “Are you and your family ready for the Lord to come?” Jesus Christ is coming to take away (rapture) all people “in Christ” before the storm of Tribulation. Don’t ignore the Bible warnings. Jesus Christ could come today!
Don’t be left behind to face the worst storm ever known. The Lord will come in an hour that you think not. Don’t be left behind!
“Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.” – Luke 12:40
Please heed this warning! The floods came as the Lord promised. The Lord will also come as He promised. If He came today are you ready? Only you can decide to escape the coming storms of God. Escape the coming judgment. Be saved now and know you are “in Christ.”
Yes, I want to be “in Christ.” I believe He died to save me and rose from the grave to forgive me. I don’t want to be left behind. I now repent of my sin and receive Jesus Christ as my Savior. I am now saved and “in Christ.” and now ready for the rapture.” Amen!.
What Next? Let others know you are now saved. Seek a Bible-believing church, be baptized, pray, study your Bible and be a faithful Christian.
