On 2/22 a 6.3 earthquake struck Christchurch, New Zealand and caused a lot of damage. It caused a lot more damage than the 7.1 earthquake that struck it last on September 4th, 2010. There are some photos and an article about it athttp://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1359354/New-Zealand-earthquake-Many-feared-dead-Christchurch.htmlIt certainly sounds like the birthpangs are getting closer together since these 2 earthquakes happened 5 to 6 months apart. It makes me wonder if another earthquake will strike Christchurch again in another 5-6 months or sooner. When a woman has a baby, the birth pains start far apart and then they become closer and closer together. Since Christchurch may somehow be a symbol of the saved church, these birthpangs as earthquakes may be pointing to when the church is delivered from the earth to the safety of heaven as the birthpangs or the earthquakes become closer and closer together like labor pains. Don't forget that in Revelation 12 the child that was delivered of the woman who flees into the wilderness for 42 months when Satan and his fallen angels are thrown down to Earth and that child is taken up to heaven at the time that the woman flees into the wilderness. So that child of the woman may represent Christ or the body of Christ (the church.)What I am wondering is whether the 2 strong earthquakes at Christchurch 5 - 6 months apart represent labour pains 5 - 6 minutes apart. The article I read called Pregnancy and the stages of labor and childbirth at http://www.webmd.com/baby/guide/pregnancy-stages-labor says that labor lasts on an average of 12 to 24 hours for the first birth and is shorter for later births. So could those 12 to 24 hours represent a delivery of the church 12 to 24 months from 2/22/ 2011 when the 6.3 earthquake struck or from last September 4th, 2010 when the 1st strong 7.1 earthquake hit Christchurch, and the body of Christ (the church) will be delivered and taken to heaven for safety in the rapture which might indicate a 2011 to 2012 rapture, or possibly a 2013 rapture if we were to go by today's date of 2/22.I guess we are going to have to watch and see if Christchurch has any more strong earthquakes 6.0 or stronger although it has aftershocks quite a bit and how close will the next earthquake be to the Feb. 22nd earthquake. If the 6.0 or stronger earthquakes start coming 2 to 3 months apart like labor pains being 2 to 3 minutes apart with longer lasting pains, then delivery of the body of Christ (the church) may happen very soon.It is interesting to note that this 2nd strong earthquake at Christchurch happened on February 22nd. If the body of Christ's delivery date were to happen 2 years from February 2011 or shortly thereafter that brings us to February or March of 2013. I had previously posted awhile back about the possibility of the 1335 days of Daniel happening from February 21st 2013 which is the Fast of Esther on Adar 11 through October 17, 2016 which is the 1st day of the Feast Tabernacles. Daniel 12:12 says, "Blessed is he that waiteth and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days." So will the rapture be in February or March of 2013, or will it be sooner?
