The earth is groaning and I'm groaning!
Dear friends:

The apostle Paul wrote prophetically:
"For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body" (Romans 8:22-23).
The Bible reveals that the end of the age will be accompanied by disruptions in the earth and signs in the heavens.

EARTHQUAKES. A recent study has revealed in the short 18-month period from just January 2010, there have been more earthquakes in the world than in any previous 10-year period. (source USGS).  This includes the 9.0 quake on March 11, plus aftershocks, and the resulting tsunami.  The earth is groaning.

TORNADOS, FLOODS AND WILDFIRES.  April was a historic month for wild weather in the United States, and it wasn't just the killer tornado outbreak that set records, according to scientists with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.  April included an odd mix of downpours, droughts and wildfires. Six states ­ Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia ­ set records for the wettest April since 1895. Kentucky, for example, got nearly a foot of rain, which was more than three times its normal for the month, NOAA reported. (AP).  The unprecedented tornado devastation is well known.  The earth is groaning.

MYSTERIOUS CELESTIAL BODY HEADING OUR WAY.  There is a 10-minute YouTube video that is an interesting analysis based on a NASA computer model of the object relative to the sun, our planet, and others.  The video is titled "Planet Elenin - Nibiru - Whatever You Want To Call It, It's Coming," and is at  www.youtube.com/watch?v=SfOfBrNUOGA&feature=related. March 15, 2011 was the first of three conjunctions where the earth is caught in the gravitational gradient lines--or the trough-that binds the sun and this celestial body together."  (NOTE: The aforementioned massive Japanese earthquake occurred on March 11, 2011.)

I'M GROANING.  Many Bible prophecy students worldwide, of many different countries and languages, believe we are extremely near the promised second coming of Jesus Christ and related events, including the rapture of believers and the Great Tribulation.  Millions are groaning, "eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body."  I'm groaning.

Something's going on!

Jim
