Birth Pains

Romans 8:22 "We know that all of creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time..."  Mark 13:6-8 "Jesus said to them: 'Watch out that no one deceives you. Many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am he,’ and will deceive many. When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places, and famines. These are the beginning of birth pains."

Interesting earthquake statistics...
From 2000-2008 we had 127 major (.7ish) earthquakes...  That's like one per every 28 days.
In 2009  there were 17; That's one every 26 days.
In 2010 there were 20; one per every 18 days.
In 2011 there was one per every 13 days.

Consider earthquakes contractions...
At this rate we would be in a constant earthquake in 2017. According to multiple Jewish scholars 2017 is the next “Year of Jubilee”
Welcome to the end folks.  :-)
