Hi John and Doves,
Every intricate detail is determined by our Almighty and Awesome God. Even the exact magnitudes of earthquakes.
Is He showing us yet again that there is something significant about the number 11? He could have determined the earthquakes to be say, a 4.6,5.7 and a 4.8 changing the magnitudes by one point, but He didn't. Each one, by adding the magnitude together equals 11. (4+7 =11, 5+6 =11, 4+7 =11) This is NOT a coincidence :)
Something else which is fascinating about these earthquakes, is that the difference between the magnitudes is .9. The 5.6 earthquake was a magnitude of .9 greater than the first 4.7, then the magnitude of the second 4.7 earthquake was .9 less than the 5.6. Now the number 9 comes into play.
The way my mind pictures this is:
First earthquake........ magnitude 4.7 =11
Difference between 1st and 2nd quakes .9
Second quake...........magnitude 5.6 =11
Difference between 2nd and 3rd quakes .9
Third quake.............magnitude 4.7 =11
God certainly has a pattern here. One more thing which is interesting. The magnitudes are raised and lowered by 1 "notch".
Hmmm.... to me this looks like two more 11's.
Oklahoma is known as the"sooner" state, it's abbreviation is OK. This makes me wonder if God's message to us is...There is chaos and destruction coming, the "sooner" you turn to Jesus, you'll be OK!!
Our Marvelous God is One of infinite intricate details, all coming together exactly as He has planned. Wow!!!
Loving watching our Master at work:)
