Jesus Will Return Suddenly
NCW 17, March 1995
Q. Earthquakes are increasing in both number and intensity. Now one has hit a major urban area in one of the richest countries of the world, Kobe, in Japan. Didn't Christ say that this would be a sign of His imminent return?
Yes He did (Matt.24:3f). The Kobe quake shocked the international business community. If a similar quake hit Tokyo or some other financial centre, the world economy could collapse and plunge the planet into chaos and anarchy. Such an event could well be the trigger for the Great Tribulation. Who knows. A good piece of advice, no matter what the final scenario, though, is: "Prepare to meet thy God" (Amos 4:12, AV) in times such as these.
