A 6.9-magnitude earthquake has struck about 170km (105 miles) south-east of Ecuador's capital, Quito

The quake happened at 0654 local time (1154 GMT), at a depth of about 190km, the US Geological Survey (USGS) said.

"Had it been less deep, it would have caused quite a lot of damage," said Sandro Vaca of Ecuador's geophysics institute.

No tsunami warnings were issued and there were no immediate reports of casualties or damage.

The strength was initially measured by the USGS at 6.7 then raised to 7.2 before being set at 6.9.

I get the feeling that something unusual is happening.  All of these earthquakes. There are many and they are stronger than usual.

Just imagine if the 6.8 and 7s were 9s.  Then place many of them in high concentrations of people. I fear that we will not need to imagine for too much longer.

I've experienced a ?7.5 in the Pacific islands, very close to the epicenter, Cp. Struck in the middle of the night whilst I was staying alone in a little cottage, didn't know a soul in the neighborhood, in an unfamiliar country where I had just arrived.  It was a very frightful experience.  First I heard roosters crowing and dogs barking then what sounded like a train rushing by in the underground. It felt like my bed lifted at least a couple of feet on a wave then everything shook fiercely.  There were 8 similar aftershocks before dawn.

I suppose many of us are going to experience such things soon. God will be with us as we abide in Christ.

Massive 7.4 earthquake hits New Zealand near Christchurch
01:32 PM - USA Today


A massive 7.4 magnitude earthquake has hit New Zealand's South Island, causing widespread damage and knocking out power to much of the area, The Nelson Mail reports.

The quake was centered about 20 miles west of Christchurch. The newspaper is located in Nelson, which is on the northern end of the South Island.

The newspaper quotes one witness, Colleen Simpson, as saying residents of Christchurch were out in the street in their pajamas looking "scared and worried."

"Oh ******. There is a row of shops completely demolished right in front of me," she is quoted as saying.

Power was knocked out to the area and and mobile phones were being to fail, the newspaper reports.

6.3!  And they keep coming!  God will answer His critics that there are not more earthquakes now than before. There certainly are. But, if it takes some persuading, then God will accommodate the skeptics.  Jesus is coming soon!! 

Before He comes, there will be a national Sunday law in the US. Religious freedom will be a thing of the past. And, yes there will Sunday laws in all lands. Those who do not believe in Scripture will follow the commandments of men rather than the commandments of God while extolling their false religion. Such a deception!  They will be saying "peace, peace" when sudden destruction comes. 

It is time to prepare for our Lord's coming!
