Hundreds killed in tsunami after 8.9 Japan quake

May God be with His dear people in Japan. Many there have  not a knowledge of the true God, Jesus Christ, and the truth for this time. May God be with His dear children and may God help inspire His people with a missionary spirit that we may go whereever God’s providence leads us (both  near and far) to help prepare a people for His coming.

 We pray God, that He might protect and help the self sacrificing missionaries already working the area, but oh, that God may raise up many more  missionary forces in Japan, may He inspire the right missionaries today, to give them Jesus and His present truth before it is too late.

What has happened in Japan. Notice the following report:

   (Associated Press Malcolm Foster, Associated Press – 29 mins ago TOKYO) – “A ferocious tsunami spawned by one of the largest earthquakes on record slammed Japan’s eastern coast Friday, killing hundreds of people as it swept away ships, cars and homes while widespread fires burned out of control.

“Hours later, the tsunami hit Hawaii but did not cause major damage. Warnings blanketed the Pacific, putting areas on alert as far away as South America, Canada, Alaska and the entire U.S. West coast. In northeastern Japan, the area around a nuclear power plant was evacuated after the reactor’s cooling system failed. (To read the whole article click here).

What Does this mean prophetically ?

 Notice the word of the Lord’s Messenger:

“The time is at hand when there will be sorrow in the world that no human balm can heal. The Spirit of God is being withdrawn. Disasters by sea and by land follow one another in quick succession. How frequently we hear of earthquakes and tornadoes, of destruction by fire and flood, with great loss of life and property! Apparently these calamities are capricious outbreaks of disorganized, unregulated forces of nature, wholly beyond the control of man; but in them all, God’s purpose may be read. They are among the agencies by which He seeks to arouse men and women to a sense of their danger.  {PK 277.1}

     “God’s message for the inhabitants of earth today is, “Be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.” Matthew 24:44. The conditions prevailing in society, and especially in the great cities of the nations, proclaim in thunder tones that the hour of God’s judgment is come and that the end of all things earthly is at hand. We are standing on the threshold of the crisis of the ages. In quick succession the judgments of God will follow one another–fire, and flood, and earthquake, with war and bloodshed. We are not to be surprised at this time by events both great and decisive; for the angel of mercy cannot remain much longer to shelter the impenitent.  {PK 278.1} 


What Should we do?

“Behold, the Lord cometh out of His place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity: the earth also shall disclose her blood, and shall no more cover her slain.” Isaiah 26:21. The storm of God’s wrath is gathering; and those only will stand who respond to the invitations of mercy, as did the inhabitants of Nineveh under the preaching of Jonah, and become sanctified through obedience to the laws of the divine Ruler. The righteous alone shall be hid with Christ in God till the desolation be overpast. Let the language of the soul be:

 “Other refuge have I none, Hangs my helpless soul on Thee; Leave, O, leave me not alone! Still support and comfort me.

 “Hide me, O my Saviour, hide! Till the storm of life is past; Safe into the haven guide, O receive my soul at last!”  {PK 278.2}
