Japan Earthquake, Tsunami & Arab Wars, Some Consult Bible & Other Holy Texts

Holy Bible                     Holy Quran

You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come.  Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.There will be famines and earthquakes in various places.

The prior passage is from Matthew 24, verses 6 and 7 in the New International Version of The Holy Bible. This is what Jesus said when referring to events that would be a precursor to the end of days. In verse 8 he said that these were the beginning of birth pains.

Whenever there are upheavals on a worldwide basis, whether they are natural or man made, there is talk and speculation of the end of the world and Armageddon. A simple internet search using the terms earthquake, tsunami and the end of the world will show how much chatter is taking place regarding this subject.

Adding to the undercurrent of speculation is that the location of much of the unrest in the world is centered in North African and the Middle East all around the nation of Israel where the final battle is to take place.

We have had numerous earthquakes over the past several years of large intensity including Indonesia, Haiti and Japan events. We have had numerous wars, but what about the current unrest in the Middle East and North Africa. The unrest in those countries is primarily from citizens revolting against oppressive leaders versus countries attacking each other. Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Syria, Yemen and Bahrain are internal struggles of people wanting more opportunity within their own nations.

Yes we have conflicts with other nations with a coalition waging a campaign in Libya to protect its citizens from the country’s own government. In Afghanistan the war is against a terrorist group and the Taliban, not the nation. It would seem that the nation against nation portion of this passage has not been fulfilled. It is also said that man will not know when that time comes and that is probably the part of this we can count on the most.
