At least 2 earthquakes yesterday.
At the bottom of the page you will see the special attention that the Sea has gotten on the the Geophysical institute of Israel's website for the historic amount of earthquakes in 2018. It went virtually unnoticed by the rest of the world.

We know why this is happening though, keep watching.

Thats right, no major earthquakes since Israel became a nation.
The earthquake swarms have been historic under the Sea of Galilee, check the link.

Plus a 'felt' 3.2 hit just outside of Nazareth today. The Galilee is shaking, thats what we should be keeping an eye on.

Jeremiah 31:31-40 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)
The New Agreement
31 This is what the Lord said, “The time is coming when I will make a new agreement with the family of Israel and with the family of Judah. 32 It will not be like the agreement I made with their ancestors. I made that agreement when I took them by the hand and brought them out of Egypt. I was their master, but they broke that agreement.” This message is from the Lord.

33 “In the future I will make this agreement with the people of Israel.” This message is from the Lord. “I will put my teachings in their minds, and I will write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. 34 People will not have to teach their neighbors and relatives to know the Lord, because all people, from the least important to the most important, will know me.” This message is from the Lord. “I will forgive them for the evil things they did. I will not remember their sins.”

The Lord Will Never Leave Israel
35 He makes the sun shine in the day,
and he makes the moon and the stars shine at night.
He stirs up the sea so that its waves crash on the shore.
The Lord All-Powerful is his name.

This is what the Lord says:
36 “The descendants of Israel will never stop being a nation.
That would happen only if I lost control of the sun, moon, stars, and sea.”

37 The Lord says, “I will never reject the descendants of Israel.
That would happen only if people could measure the sky above,
and learn all the secrets of the earth below.
Only then would I reject them for the bad things they have done.”
This message is from the Lord.

The New Jerusalem
38 This message is from the Lord, “The days are coming when the city of Jerusalem will be rebuilt for the Lord. The whole city will be rebuilt—from the Tower of Hananel to the Corner Gate. 39 The measuring line[a] will stretch from the Corner Gate straight to the hill of Gareb and then turn to the place named Goah. 40 The whole valley where dead bodies and ashes are thrown and all the terraces down to the bottom of Kidron Valley all the way to the corner of Horse Gate will be holy to the Lord. The city of Jerusalem will never again be torn down or destroyed.”

The person is espousing we walk by sight (signs and wonders gospel) as if the kingdom of God did come by observation and not walking by faith . Therefore using a literal earthquake and the literal feet of a fleshly Jesus, as if God was a man as us .

When looking to the spiritual understanding of those metaphors used in those parable like earthquake and feet . We given the understanding that feet represent the gospel .God who is not a man as us has not literal feet . and earthquake is used to represent the first resurrection when the Old testament saints entered the new Jerusalem as the city prepared as His bride that he named Christians..

John 13:8 “You will never wash my feet!” Peter replied. “If I don’t wash you,” Jesus told him, “you don’t really belong to me.”

Matthew 27:53-55 King James Version (KJV)
And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many. Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God. And many women were there beholding afar off, which followed Jesus from Galilee, ministering unto him:

My undergrad degree is in physical geography. Earthquakes were a big part of my studies.

The Jordan Valley is a Rift Valley, where the plates are being pulled apart. It is the northern part of the Great African Rift Valley.

Rift Valleys are characterized by plate movement, ie, earthquakes. These are usually in small increments, but if the boundaries get stuck, fewer earthquakes, or lesser magnitude will result. (Although my search led my to 100's of earthquakes recently near the Sea of Galilee!)

Small earthquakes relieve the pressure in active fault zones. Major ones do too, of course, but they also cause more damage.

My point? Lots of seismic activity has been going on in Israel for millennia. To try and say an earthquake in a fault zone is indicative of the return of Jesus is truly ludicrous.

You start your post with a false statement. Jesus said there shall be earthquakes in diverse place. You say even though the Sea of Galilee has been shaking like crazy we should turn a blind eye, "Nothing to see here folks". No thank you pal, the Sea of Galilee is a place where miracles happen, Praise Jesus.

Yes you are catching up to speed, you are still pretty far behind though.
Look at you go, you copy and pasted from another website.
You are a liar if you say I am a dispensationalist and you can't get more anti-rapture than me.
Don't worship satan, thinking that he is Jesus. Don't fall in love with the fallen angels when they come claiming to be your savior. You must wake up to this reality.

loved structural geology…….though it is not geography..

From as near as I can tell, that African rift will be responsible for the fulfilling of the prophecy of Jerusalem splitting in half with one side going north the other south, or one side staatic and the other moving.

I have some thoughts on the pre-cambrian Canadian plate also that I believe will occcur, but this is only from the physical study, not necessarily from prophesy..

From the video: "You multiply the chapter number by the verse number."

"Christ is no doubt stamping Satan's forehead with the number 153."

But of course, who wouldn't have know this!!! :whistle:

Um, Scripture?

I agree that the chapter multiplication stuff is pretty nonsensical, especially since the chapter and verse division weren't added for about 1500 yrs, but being one of those dreaded dispensationalists, I found several aspects of this video intriguing.

The idea, with so many being baptized in the Jordan River, of our sins being taken by the river to the lowest place on Earth, literally named The DEAD Sea, is fascinating. More research into the footprint aspect needs examined before I was onboard with that.

Hey, are there any Reformed dispensational Churches out there? LOL I'm a weirdo who would fall into that category.

No worries, God will forgive you for being a dispy. :)

Yes, the Dead Sea thing is an interesting analogy, but I will not put much stock into it. The footprint thing is another thing I'm not getting on board over. Seeking these signs in my opinion is the task of those who do not really study Scripture, context, and exposition. Numerology, pre-texts, signs and wonders and a "get thee behind me Satan" thrown in seem to be the main objective of these sectarians. If you cannot "see" what they are "preaching" then you are a heretic damned to hell. These types will turn around and damn one another to hell if they have one slip up over their man made doctrines.

No thanks, I'll pass on that snare of the devil.

John MacArthur seems to fall into the camp you're speaking of, albeit only as far as Eschatology goes, he does not embrace Dispensational soteriology in the least. Now pack your bags and off to The Master's Seminary you go.

Yes earthquakes as a sign of the times not as sign as a wonderment to seek after. That would be for natural man that walks by sight after the temporal things seen that Jesus called the evil generation. They have no continuing living hope .

The sign that fulfills that daily for those who do walk by the faith of Christ that lives in their earthen bodies of death will be fulfilled when we receive the goal of our living hope that rises above human hope , not of this world, our new incorruptible bodies in the new heavens and earth .Un till then we walk by faith .

The reformation is over the use of Jewish flesh used in parables as shadows pointing to the suffering of Christ beforehand has been fulfilled for over two thousand years

You answer is nonsensical because you have little to no knowledge of how they were added, else you wouldn't of answered that. Also you know little about the power of God if you think He can't play a active roll in His word 1500 years or ago or whenever, doesn't matter. Not too smart Penned, and then you dismiss all the equations as coincidence, not too smart to think these could be made up, penned.
