When the earthquake struck, I was driving down the mountain from Petionville. Our truck was being tossed to and fro like a toy, and when it stopped, I looked out the windows to see buildings “pancaking” down, like I have never witnessed before. Traffic, of course, came to a stand-still, while thousands of people poured out into the streets, crying, carrying bloody bodies, looking for anyone who could help them. We piled as many bodies into the back of our truck, and took them down the hill with us, hoping to find medical attention. All of them were older, scared, bleeding, and terrified. It took about 2 hours to go less than 1 mile. Traffic was horrible, devastation was everywhere, and suffering humanity was front and center.

That there is one coming is certain, according to the Bible. Note, that one of the signs is the changing of the Axis: this has happened twice that we've been told about: in the earthquake/tsunami of 12/26/04 in Sumatra, and in the recent series of serious earthquakes in Chile in 2010: where we were told that the earth's axis changed by 3 inches and shortened time by 1.26 microseconds. That doesn't sound like a lot, but if these earthquakes continue - the change will accumulate. At what point would it just then flip the 30 degrees we've been told about?(Isaiah 13:10)
