In light of the recent earthquakes in Japan, it’s a good time to ask the question, “What does God say in the Bible about earthquakes?” Here’s a helpful Bible study from The New Topical Textbook by R.A. Torrey: The Bible on Earthquakes.
Let’s continue to pray that God will have compassion and…
- Send workers to rescue the trapped.
- Heal the injured.
- Feed the hungry.
- Protect those in danger.
And may the Christians in Japan have compassion and wisdom speaking the gospel of hope to the fearful and grieving.
P.S. In the Bible study above, Torrey forgot the most important earthquake in the Bible, the last earthquake in history, the only earthquake I’m looking forward to…
“25 See that you do not reject the One who speaks; for if they did not escape when they rejected Him who warned them on earth, even less will we if we turn away from Him who warns us from heaven. 26 His voice shook the earth at that time, but now He has promised, Yet once more I will shake not only the earth but also heaven. 27 Now this expression, ‘Yet once more,’ indicates the removal of what can be shaken вЂ” that is, created thingsвЂ”so that what is not shaken might remain. 28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us hold on to grace. By it, we may serve God acceptably, with reverence and awe; 29 for our God is a consuming fire” (Heb. 12:25-29, HCSB).
There will be no more earthquakes when the kingdom of heaven comes down to the new earth at the end.
