Earthquakes increase in end times.
The last day prophecies say that earthquakes will increase. How is the current pattern of earthquake increase lining up with this prophecy?
Below is a graph showing how the number of “all size” magnitude earthquakes has grown over the past 30 years or so.
All earthquakes of 7.0 is reflected in the next chart. This report has been based on data available from USGS (NEIC) and other online sources, such as Wikipedia, in an attempt to cover as much of the available data as possible. .
|DATES||PERIOD||#EARTHQUAKES ( MAG >6.99)|
|1901-1938||38 years||53||Reference list 1901 to 1938|
|1939-1976||38 years||71||Reference list 1939 to 1976|
|1977-2014||38 years||123 (to Jan 2008)||Reference list 1977 to date|

Apart from the "long-term" trends shown above, which show an show an ongoing persistent increase, it is perhaps more stark to record that earthquakes across the planet show a marked increase in activity since 1997. There are more major earthquakes occurring now, and this on an ever more frequent basis.
Trends since 1986, correlated with the solar cycles
11 year periods : earthquakes of magnitude 7.0 or greater
1986 and 1996 (incl), solar cycle 22, 15 earthquakes.
1997 and 2007 (incl), solar cycle 23, 99 earthquakes
This is more than a six-fold increase on the previous similar period - and is a stark increase on any earlier decades in 20th century too.
2008 and 2019 (incl), solar cycle 24, 600 ??? (another 6 fold increase?)

The trends in nature here, particularly from 1997 support the wider realization of prophesy about the "End Times", namely that an increase in earthquake activity is a pre-requisite for the "second coming of Jesus Christ" foretold in the bible. It does not indicate how close we are to this event, but suggests it is not too far away.
Past performance cannot necessarily be taken as a clear indication of future trends . However, it is clear we are currently living in a time when earthquake frequency has increased, it will be interesting to see if the immediate future maintains this trend.
