At the end of its 140-year-cycle according to research geophysicist Tom Brocher, we learn that the Hayward fault could produce a major earthquake 'at any time' and scientists warn 'it could trigger an earthquake any day now'. We're also told that the last 5 major earthquakes on this fault line have happened about 140 years apart but the last time that we had one there, way back in 1868, was 147 years ago and that area is much more populated now than it was back then.
In fact, many contemporary theologians and pastors believe they're observing numerous signs in the current culture that mirror the supposedly prophetic contents of Scriptures in Old and New Testament books like Ezekiel, Daniel and Revelation—events that they say could soon come to fruition.
Many of these theologians and pastors told me that sweeping moral decay, biblical disconnectedness and ongoing violence in the Middle East are just a few of the prophetic markers that they believe were foretold thousands of years ago in both the Old and New Testaments.
But how can Christian leaders be so sure that the biblical end times are approaching? Jesus Himself foretold of His future Second Coming. The problem? Christ also proclaimed in Matthew 24:36 that "no one knows" the day or the hour of His return. While the Bible proclaims that humanity cannot know the "when," Jesus did reveal to the disciples some of signs of His Second Coming in Matthew 24:6-8:
"You will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled. ... For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines, epidemics, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows."
