Many Christians believe that we are living in the end times, as delineated in the book of Revelation. One of the signs that mark the end of earthly life and the beginning of the new age of heaven and earth is that of earthquakes.
Not only in Revelation, but in the book of Matthew, Chapter 24, Jesus was asked by His disciples about signs of His second coming. In verse seven, Jesus said, "Nation will rise against nations, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places." Then, skipping to verse 25, He said "Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away." Finally, verse 45 quotes Jesus as saying "So you also must be ready because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.
