Relevant Words of God:
“In the world, earthquakes are the beginning of disaster. First, I make the world, that is the earth, change. That is followed by plagues and famines. This is My plan, these are My steps, and I will mobilize everything to serve Me, to complete My management plan.”
“All disasters will befall one after another; all nations and all places will experience disasters—plague, famine, flood, drought and earthquakes are everywhere. These disasters do not just happen in one or two places, nor will they be over within one or two days, but instead they will extend over a greater and greater area, and the disasters will become more and more severe.
