They wouldn't happen to be a growing threat to Israel, would they? Like promising to wipe Israel off the map?

Pray for the innocent.
Pray for death for the mullahs.

Could be. And before the big one, when they decide to destroy Israel. Or attempt to do so, that is. And there shall even be great shaking in Israel.

Ezekiel 38:18-20

King James Version (KJV)

18 And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, saith the Lord God, that my fury shall come up in my face.

19 For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;

20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.

I wondered if maybe the Iranian ragheads decided to test a nuke underground and that set off the earthquakes.

Prayers up nonetheless.

No, but I think Harry Reid has introduced a bill to send Iran a new set of tectonic plates.

Actually, Japan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a flurry of anti-Israel comments leading up to their 9.0 earthquake.

Statement by Mr. Seiji Maehara, Minister for Foreign Affairs of Japan, on the demolition of the Shepherd’s Hotel in East Jerusalem

Statement by the Press Secretary, Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Japan, on the situation in East Jerusalem

“The Japanese Government is determined to continue its support to the Palestinian people”, said Mr. Naofumi Hashimoto, Representative of Japan to the Palestinian National Authority. “This support comes from a human security perspective as well as from its political stand for the Palestinian efforts to establish a viable independent Palestinian state and to develop the capacities of governmental and local institutions in providing basic daily services to people.”

Statement by Press Secretary/Director-General for Press and Public Relations, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, on the decision of the Government of Israel regarding the construction of housing units at settlements in West Bank including East Jerusalem

God gave the warning:

“I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” (Genesis 12:3, NKJV)

The fact that godless, pagan, demonic nations reject the God Who gave that promise and disregard what He has said will happen doesn't cancel out what He said.

We can expect more of these un-natural disasters and we can expect them to get worse, including in America.

God says what He means and means what He says. And the fact that there are human beings who don't believe that couldn't be more irrelevant.

We do not need to send aid. The Russians will gladly do that.

About 3-4 weeks ago there was a lot of earthquake activity in South Western Iran. Now North Western Iran moves.
