Through the centuries, since Noah, there have been strange times: periods when floods, earthquakes, tidal waves, storms, droughts, plagues, volcanoes, and even asteroid or comet activity have haunted the earth. It happened during ancient Egypt; it happened to the Greeks; it happened to the Roman Empire.
It's about to happen again.
God is poised to send major events upon us, and it's for a simple reason. Like the people in ancient times, like those at the time of Noah-like Sodom and Nineveh-we've allowed evil to build up, and as a result we face happenings everywhere. Whenever a society turns on a wicked path, events are sent. Hurricane Andrew, the Mississippi flood, and wildfire. Since 1989, the United States has seen seven of its top ten greatest disasters, and every year the pace steps up. Whether from science, whether from prophecy, whether from the nightly news, are signs that the big one-a series of events that will affect every region of the world-is about to occur. Such was indicated in secret prophecies granted by the Virgin Mary to shepherds in France (on a mysterious mountain). The seasons would alter, said the Virgin; there would be a change in climate; there would be quakes; the entire globe would go through convulsions. Similar indications have come from places like Medjugorje.
What else is in those prophecies- and how do they relate to what's happening now?
In virtually every field are indications that major natural disasters are about to occur. In the Atlantic is a hidden fault that could cause a massive tidal wave; in California astronomers nervously watch for asteroids; in Miami the government has built a fortress-like hurricane center. Not since the Middle Ages-when a third of Europe died from the Black Death-have we been in such a critical period; not since the end of the Roman Empire have we faced a global disturbance; not since the time of the pyramids have we raced so blindly toward the types of disasters that swept and changed, that terrified, the ancient world-and that without an urgent turn back to Christ are now set to return.
