Japan Hit by a Powerful Earthquake


A powerful earthquake hit northern Japan today:

8.9 quake kills hundreds in Japan

Los Angeles Times – David Pierson – ‎30 minutes ago‎
The quake triggers a tsunami that threatens much of the Pacific. Up to 300 bodies are found in the city of Sendai in northeastern Japan, an area believed to have been hit hardest by the massive waves…
The city of 1 million was struck by a wave 20 feet high, then another 33 feet high. A hotel collapsed and large ships in port were seen lying on their sides.

The impact of this earthquake seems major.  A review I just did suggests that this may be the biggest earthquake ever to hit Japan.  Now like Chile, Japan is more prepared for large earthquakes than most other countries, but this one is quite large and troublesome.

A tsumani watch has also been implemented. ( Even near where I live, they have evacuated 1000 people and closed at least one school for concerns about waves and a possible tsunami.)

Jesus, of course, warned about a time with such issues:

8 … And there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be…troubles. These are the beginnings of sorrows. (Mark 13:8)

We may be at this prophetic point as all the earthquakes and other problems that have happened in the past year or so could be considered as “troubles”.

The Japanese are in my prayers.
