Earthquake pattern increasing for Jerusalem – end times?

Based on 300-400-year historical cycles, the pattern of recent tremors, the Middle East should be expecting a major earthquake in the near future, according to geologists in Tel Aviv.

A verse in Zachariah (Ch. 14) describes two instances of earthquakes, one of which split apart the Mount of Olives:

Zec 14:2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

Zec 14:3 Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.

Zec 14:4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which [is] before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, [and there shall be] a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.

This east to west split described by Zechariah is in the same direction of split outlined by the “dead sea transform (DST)” or Syrian-African Rift.

images of the DST, also known as the Syrian African rift.

**** This confirms the accuracy of the bible. (How could Zachariah know about what only geologists know today about the DST, unless God told him?)

The last earthquake damages temple mount occurred 02/17/08, size 5.3.

The chart below (color coded by period) shows the known earthquakes that have occurred over the last 2000 years. The delta is the time gap between one earthquake and the next one. It seems like long periods of 100-300+ years occur. I see 3 periods: (1) around 31 AD, time of Christ, (2) 363-1202 , a period of 839 years, and (3) 1546-2008, a period of 462 years.

The time gap between period 1, and 2 and 3 is about 300 years each. In the beginning of each period, the earthquakes are well spaced apart, and then become closer together in time.

In period 2 they are about every 300 years, then decrease to about every 52 years. In period 3, they start out about every 250 years, then more rapidly decrease to about every 4 years. This shows that the current period Jerusalem that is in now, is more intense in frequency than other periods.

Although the actual timing of earthquakes in general is not predictable, the pattern suggests that the next earthquake could be estimated in another 4 years or so. This would be about 2012. But there is always a wait and see approach with me. My goal is just to show the pattern.

A three-year study, conducted by the Geological Survey of Israel and released this week, found that the Old City is more at risk than modern neighborhoods because of its ancient construction and the underground layers of shifting debris left behind by ransacking armies, said Amos Bein, the center’s director.

“The layer below is not made of solid rock, but rather a kind of rubble,” Bein said. Those weak foundations could magnify an earthquake’s seismic wave, he said. Due to excavations under the Temple Mount to expand the area for mosque activity, weakening the foundational support systems, the Temple Mount would be especially vulnerable if another earthquake would occur in Jerusalem.

The Great Rift Valley runs for 3,000 miles between Syria and Mozambique and passes through the Dead Sea, below Jerusalem’s eastern hills. The fault line was caused by the separation of African and Eurasian tectonic plates in ancient times, a split that weakened the Earth’s crust.

**** there is also a prophecy that Damascus, Syria, will be destroyed, which has not happened yet. I wonder if an earthquake will do this.

Isa 17:1 The burden of Damascus. Behold, Damascus is taken away from [being] a city, and it shall be a ruinous heap.

Major earthquake regions in the world.

Four Moderate Lebanese Quake Shakes Up Northern Galilee

(IsraelNN.com) Residents in the northern Galilee Thursday afternoon felt four earthquakes that hit Lebanon and measured up to a mild 3.9 on the Richter scale. Previous earthquakes this year measured 3.3 and 5.3 on the Richter scale.

No one was injured and no damage was reported.

  3. aqui en esta cuadra hay una venden empanadas pueden comprales algunas y preguntar que cual es la menten al dueño esta pillao DIOS BENDIGA A ISRAEL

  4. Twenty some years I had a dream where I saw a dome behind a wall. I immediately realized that this was the dome of the rock. Then the dome fell straight to the bottom, disappearing behind the wall with dust coming up. In the next scene I saw a crowd of mad people protesting in front of a house which I perceived as an embassy or consulate. In 2006 I have visited Israel for the first time and as I looked to the dome from the garden of Gethsemane I saw that it was a little lower than from the position I saw in the dream.
    Revelation says that before Jesus returns there will be a massive earthquake.

  5. Hi GYOD

    I believe as you do. It seems like the dome would have to fall, for the temple to be rebuilt. When Jesus comes, there will be an earthquake, when he sets his foot on the Mt of Olives. Maybe this is one reason for the earthquake.

  6. I totally agree–it makes sense if you read the appropriate verses
    carefully. The destruction of Damascus will be a supernatural event
    brought about directly by God and not as a result of military action
    as most believe. The fact that Israel will also affected by this
    event suggests that the likely cause will,indeed,be an earthquake.

  7. There was just an earthquake in Malawi Eastern Africa.
    I believe it sits on the Great Rift Valley.

  9. see….I didn’t know this either…that there would be an earthquake before His return in Jerusalem….learning everyda! thank you 🙂 love your site Marianne!

  10. This is a well written article regarding the past, present and future earthquakes…their meanings and what to expect further:

  11. Why is it the U.S.G.S. denies an earthquake increase when it is sooo obvious?

  12. It will be ….when it will be…. for so we have a GOD in heaven and on the earth to protects those who will be inheritors of the Kingdom of GOD to become a reality on the earth.

  13. When we are there…we shall have GOD ALMIGHTY to inhabit the earth for those to come and for a willing subject.

  14. THIS IS THE YEAR 2014. SCROLL STORIES ARE FACKS ABOUT SOMEONES ELSES LIFE IN HISTORY. HOW ABOUT YOURS? IM SURE YOPU HAVE ONE OF YOUR OWN. ARE YOU GOING TO HAVE AN EARTHQUAKE TO? SEATTLE WASHINGTON-USA IS. THEY HAVE 4 FAULT LINES AND TREMERS HAPPENING. TINA.
