February 9, 1971
6.6 magnitude earthquake rocks the San Fernando Valley.
Many died in California from the quake. You would normally think of a hospital as a safe place to go for healing—but not in Sylmar on that day. Forty-nine people died in that one hospital, alone, as it collapsed.
Many people go to hospitals for emergencies and for surgeries—all meant to give them quality of life, and to prolong their lives. But that may be the very place that you suffer something that takes your life. Are you ready? “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall GAIN the whole WORLD, and LOSE his own SOUL?” (Holy Bible, Mark 8:36, KJV).
October 17, 1989
6.9 magnitude earthquake
hits San Francisco.
Once again, many people died. Buildings and freeways collapsed. The third game of the World Series was to be played there between the Oakland A’s, and the San Francisco Giants. The stands were filled with people, ready for the game to start—but it ended up being delayed for ten days.
Are you looking forward to a big sporting event? Are you playing in it, or just rooting for your favorite team? That may be the very place that you die. Are you ready? “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall GAIN the whole WORLD, and LOSE his own SOUL?” (Holy Bible, Mark 8:36, KJV).
January 17, 1994
6.7 magnitude earthquake rocks the San Fernando Valley again.
Many people died again in the quake. Apartments and roads collapsed. The Santa Monica Freeway, I-10, considered the busiest freeway in the USA, suffered major damage.
There is another heavily traveled road that is facing mass destruction. “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for WIDE is the gate, and BROAD is the way, that LEADETH to DESTRUCTION, and MANY there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it” (Holy Bible, Matthew 7:13-14, KJV). On which road do you travel?
The scoreboard at Anaheim Stadium also collapsed onto hundred of seats. By the way, what is going to be the final score of your life? “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall GAIN the whole WORLD, and LOSE his own SOUL?” (Holy Bible, Mark 8:36, KJV).
Despite all the loss, these quakes were not the BIG ONE.
“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; And I WILL SHAKE ALL NATIONS” (Holy Bible, Haggai 2:6,7, KJV). “And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a GREAT EARTHQUAKE; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood; And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind. And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and EVERY MOUNTAIN and ISLAND were MOVED out of their places” (Holy Bible, Revelation 6:12-14, KJV). “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; MEN’S HEARTS FAILING them for FEAR, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be SHAKEN” (Holy Bible, Luke 21:25-26, KJV).
“Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked TURN from his WAY and LIVE” (Holy Bible, Ezekiel 33:11a, KJV). TURN to the LORD JESUS CHRIST right now, and ask Him to FORGIVE you, and to CLEANSE you, and to SAVE you.
The Lord Jesus Christ is the Son of God; Creator of heaven and earth. He is God Almighty in the flesh: Master, Savior, and Messiah. He died on the cross for you, and gave His pure, sinless blood to pay your sin debt. The Lord Jesus Christ arose from the grave the third day, proving that His blood fully paid for your sins. To be saved, you must CALL upon Him from your HEART. “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the LORD JESUS, and shalt BELIEVE in thine HEART that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be SAVED.” “For whosoever shall CALL upon the NAME of the LORD shall be SAVED” (Holy Bible, Romans 10:9,13, KJV).
After we ask the Lord Jesus Christ to save us, then God instructs us to openly confess Him by getting baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. When we go under the water, it pictures death to the old life of sin, and when we come up out of the water, it pictures a new life serving the Lord Jesus Christ.
Yes, I just asked the Lord Jesus Christ to save me, and I desire to now live for Him.
