5 Major Earthquakes In 48 Hours As A Seismologist Warns ‘Catastrophic Mega Earthquakes’ Are Coming

By Michael Snyder

Why is the crust of the Earth shaking so violently all of a sudden?  Over the past 48 hours, there have been five major earthquakes globally, and one prominent seismologist has declared that “catastrophic mega earthquakes” could be on the way.  In fact, seismologist Roger Bilham of the University of Colorado has made headlines all over the world by warning that “current conditions might trigger at least four earthquakes greater than 8.0 in magnitude”.  If his projections are accurate, our planet could be on the precipice of a wave of natural disasters unlike anything that any of us have ever experienced before.

Since the beginning of 2016, south Asia has been hit by an unusually high number of large earthquakes, and this has scientists groping for an explanation.  The following comes from the Express

Scientists say there has been an above average number of significant earthquakes across south Asia and the Pacific since the start of the year.

The increased frequency has sparked fears of a repeat of the Nepal quake of 2015, when 8,000 people died, or even worse.

Roger Bilham, seismologist of University of Colorado, said: “The current conditions might trigger at least four earthquakes greater than 8.0 in magnitude.

And if they delay, the strain accumulated during the centuries provokes more catastrophic mega earthquakes.”

A single magnitude 8.0 earthquake in a populated area would be a disaster of historic proportions.

If we were to see four of them like Roger Bilham is projecting, that would be a complete and utter nightmare.

It is important to keep in mind that a magnitude 8.0 earthquake would be many, many times larger than the twin earthquakes that hit Japan earlier today

A devastating 6.4-magnitude earthquake has struck Japan hours after a first which killed at least three and injured 19 others.

The quakes, which struck the south-western island of Kyushu, leveled more than a dozen homes, sparked fires and trapped several people under collapsed buildings.

Around 350 military personnel have been dispatched to aid the rescue effort, said Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga.

The first earthquake, measuring 6.5-magnitude, hit the south-east Asian country late on Friday, local time, according to the Japan Meteorological Agency.

On Thursday we also saw a magnitude 6.5 earthquake hit Vanuatu, and a magnitude 5.9 earthquake shook the southern Philippines

A 5.9 magnitude earthquake hit off the coast of Mindanao early Thursday, April 14, seismologists said, with no damage or casualties immediately reported and no tsunami warning issued. The quake occurred at 2:21 am (1821 GMT Wednesday) off the coast of Zamboanga del Norte, with its epicenter at a depth of 15 kilometers, the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) said.

And of course on Wednesday a huge magnitude 6.9 earthquake caused tremendous devastation in Myanmar

A magnitude 6.9 earthquake struck Myanmar on Wednesday, causing tremors around the region, including in neighboring Bangladesh where scores were reported injured in stampedes and buildings were damaged. The quake, which took place at a depth of 134 kilometers (83 miles), hit some 400 kilometers northwest of Myanmar’s capital Naypyidaw, according to the US Geological Survey (USGS), and was also felt in parts of India and China. There were no immediate reports of casualties, although the region where the earthquake hit has poor communications infrastructure like many of Myanmar’s outlying provinces.

So why is this happening?

Why is Asia shaking so violently all of a sudden?

And does this shaking bode ill for other areas along the “Ring of Fire” including the west coast of the United States?

I think that it is important to point out that all of this shaking did not just begin this week.  In fact, ever since the start of this calendar year there has been a lot of unusual earthquake activity all over Asia

Just four days ago, on April 10, six people died in Pakistan when a 6.6-magnitude quake hit Kabul with aftershocks in India

Two days before, on April 8, there was a magnitude 4.2 earthquake in Nepal.

Nepal had suffered a larger 5.5 magnitude one on February 22.

A month before, on January 20, there was a 6.1-magnitude earthquake in China, and 16 days earlier 11 people died when a 6.7-magnitude earthquake hit Manipur in India.

In addition, let us not forget about all of the volcanic eruptions that have been in the news in recent weeks.

According to Volcano Discovery, 38 volcanoes around the globe are erupting right now.  This is definitely an unusually high number.

In Matthew 24, Jesus warned us that there would be earthquakes in “divers places” just prior to His return.  This is something that I discuss quite a bit in my new book.  If we truly are in the times that the Bible refers to as “the last days”, we should expect the shaking of our planet to continue to intensify.

If seismologist Roger Bilham is right and we do begin to see a series of absolutely massive earthquakes, that could dramatically change the course of world events literally overnight.

Even a single magnitude 8.0 earthquake in a major city in Japan, China or the United States would cause global markets to crash and would mean billions of dollars in economic damage.

So let us hope that the crust of our planet begins to stabilize, but let us also not ignore the warnings of the scientists.

What they are warning us about right now lines up perfectly with what Jesus warned us about nearly 2000 years ago, and that is a very sobering thing to consider.

  1. Lousy Christian on

    Roger Bilham says many things. But he doesn’t specify or explain why he thinks that earth quakes will increase.

    Personally, i think mr Snyder is right, and that the Anunnaki guy called Jesus will soon take over this planet.
    Not that i like that thought. But, that’s the way it is, i guess.

    I have little expectations from Jesus. Because the Anunnaki have never shown any improvement in their behavior. To this very day, they keep oppressing us, and lying to us.
    So, why should Jesus be any different?

    I would worry more about the overdue Big Yellowstone Blow out, we can take tidal waves easy, ash clouds are different, they are what the Nordic legend of Ragnarok is symbolising when “The Fenris Wolf swallows the Sun”

  3. The Earth has never been without a lot of earthquake activity, see confirmation bias fallacy in regards to the attributing it to Jesus and irrational predictions from the bronze age.

  4. I’m always suspicious of earthquakes now, because I know they aren’t always a natural phenomenon. After what these inhuman scum did to Haiti and Japan who knows what they’re capable of.

  5. Its been happening since war broke out in heaven and Satan was thrown out of heaven and confined to the earth in 1914 . Revelation 12:7.

    Since 1914, there has been an increase in the number of earthquakes, resulting in much distress. With data obtained from the National Geophysical Data Center in Boulder, Colorado, supplemented by a number of standard reference works, a tabulation was made in 1984 that included only earthquakes that measured 7.5 or more on the Richter scale, or that resulted in destruction of five million dollars (U.S.) or more in property, or that caused 100 or more deaths. It was calculated that there had been 856 of such earthquakes during the 2,000 years before 1914. The same tabulation showed that in just 69 years following 1914 there were 605 of such quakes. These statistics are a means of indicating the extent of suffering from earthquakes during this period of history.

    you still didn’t explain why the quakes are happening. instead you’re pushing a fable of what allegedly someone said 2000 years ago
    face it. humanity is causing this
    there is fracking all over the world which is breaking up the earth’s crust
    there is global warming which is helping volcanos
    our oceans are dying at an alarming rate
    humans and ONLY humans are the blame for this
    you see, the people are so stupid that they used a book to make the fear life instead of protect it.
    instead of using “the book” as a sign of what NOT to do. instead humans have forced it to happen so “the book” holds “true”
    not impressed with your article. I expected better of the truth of why this is really going on
    common sense is all that was needed

    • I agree totally Christopher. Fracking is if not the total cause, certainly pushing this phenomena along.

  7. This is all done by the technology. Foolish people believe that this is true., People are still not aware that voice hearing around the world are due the hidden technology that US is running and at the same time they have advanced into weather manipulation.

    • Does it matter, why? If it was prophesized whether because of natural causes or man made, it is still something unthinkable 2000+ years ago. Also, because of internet, we now have up to the minute information, so whether it is actually more, or we just know about more, it still adds up to the same thing.

  8. Bigger is on the way, I believe that a major shake in central NZ will cause a massive land drop propagating a very large Tusanmi.

  9. margaret chan on

    I think I know the answerto the high intensity of the quake which no one wants to admit. modt tall building need to pile drive the soil so thar when the builfing was costructed will not collapse. most building have underground parking that they have to dig deeper. so whstever we are doing it is coming back to us.

  10. Cyb3rt Asuncion Jr. on

    .Isaiah 2:10-22
    Vs. 10-22. The shaking of the earth will be terrible to those who set their affection on things of the earth. Men’s haughtiness will be brought down, either by the grace of God convincing them of the evil of pride, or by the providence of God depriving them of all the things they were proud of. The day of the Lord shall be upon those things in which they put their confidence. Those who will not be reasoned out of their sins, sooner or later shall be frightened out of them. Covetous men make money their God; but the time will come when they will feel it as much their burden. This whole passage may be applied to the case of an awakened sinner, ready to leave all that his soul may be saved.

  11. Yeah I believe that we ARE in “the last days” as predicted by Christ. We don’t experience many earthquakes in Australia, but there’s always a first time. I hope that when the time comes, I’ll be one of those who die (He said that 2 /3rds of mankind will die) because I don’t think I could take the aftermath of such disasters. I know I’m a wimp, but that’s just me :'(

  12. In my years reading the Bible, I have yet to read the word rapture! That started from a poor woman in a EUROPEAN Assilym around 1830ad. When she told some Church Ministers, they decided to make it into Church Doctrine! Ms. MacDonald even told them, it seemed evil. No surprise here The Word said that the churches would not follow sound Doctrine! I hate to pop your balloon people,but don’t my word on it. Look it up!
