The Beginning of Sorrows

Source: Art Sadlier, Saturday September 1st 2007

In Matthew 24:3 the Disciples asked the Lord a question, “What shall be the sign of thy coming and the end of the age (world)”

Jesus listed signs which would precede His return to the earth. The signs were in two categories; the first category was called the beginning signs. Concerning the beginning signs we read, “and there shall be famines, and pestilence, and earthquakes in divers (various) places.” The clear implication is, when you see these things multiplying and happening in an unusual way, wake up, the Day of the Lord is at hand.

We are seeing a multiplication of these things at the present time. I list for you some of the things which have happened in the recent two week period.

Earthquakes

  • Okinawa: magnitude 6.4
  • Jakarta: magnitude 7.4
  • Malikus Islands: magnitude 7.0
  • Alutian Islands: magnitude 6.5
  • Vanvate Island: magnitude 7.3
  • China: 2100 homes destroyed
  • Russia: in the far east

Storms

  • China: tropical storm 2 dead
  • Britain: record flooding
  • China: floods 2 dead
  • Sudan: floods 200,000 homeless
  • South Asia: floods 2,000 dead

Tsunami

  • Algeria: 12 dead

Drought and Heat Waves

  • Turkey
  • Eastern US
  • Hungary: 500 dead

Disease

2.5 million in danger of water born diseases in Asia because of flood waters.

As these signs increase, the hearts of men only become harder as they fail to recognize the warnings of Christ.
