What is going on in China? Well, if you haven't heard, there have been 42 people killed by giant Asian hornets a few days ago, and has injured around 1600. These species can be up to 2 inches long with stingers up to 1/4 inch; they often attack in swarms. The venom itself contains a tissue damaging phospholipase (an enzyme that hydrolyzes lecithin or a similar phospholipid), as well as a neurotoxin that can, in sufficient doses, be very lethal. Sound strange? Well it's true! There have been extraordinary events occurring around the world that has an apocalyptic ring to it. It almost seems like these stories are being told from a science fiction novel, but the truth of the matter is that these events are actually happening. The question is why.
In the book of Luke, Chapter 21 verse 11 says, And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. We have been seeing a wave of these great signs all over the world. These signs are the beginning of sorrows; the birth pains before the end of the world as we know it. Jesus told us that we are to watch for these signs so that we will know when His coming is at hand. The birth pains are intensifying and speeding up rapidly. We must pay attention to what is going on in the earth.
The earth is responding to the sin and to the rebellion that is being demonstrated by humanity. Haggai 2:6 says, "For thus saith the Lord of hosts; Yet once, it is a little while, and I will shake the heavens, and the earth, and the sea, and the dry land." We have been seeing just that being manifested around the world. The heavens are being shaken by comets and meteorites. The earth is being shaken by earthquakes, tornados, hurricanes, typhoons, and fires. The seas are being shaken by tsunamis and massive fish deaths; as well as other sea creatures. The dry land is being shaken by sink holes, massive floods, animals dropping dead all over the world, and people killing one another. There has been a great shaking!
There has never been a generation that has seen all of these signs manifest at the same time until this very generation. We are definitely living in the last days! Wake up! If you have not made the decision to ask Jesus Christ, our Messiah, to come into your life, now is the time!
