I’ve been writing for months (here, here, here,) about how the geological changes on the earth’s crust in the form of sinkholes, cracks, earthquakes and the like are symptoms of what Isaiah has said WILL happen in the Tribulation. Isaiah prophesies that at the last days the earth will crack up. Prior to that, the geo-landforms on top of the earth and underneath it will undergo catastrophic changes. Islands will sink. Mountains will collapse. It has been my opinion that these events as birth pangs are increasing in advance of the tribulation, making themselves more and more known, as birth pangs do. The earth as we see it will be modified.
“The earth reels like a drunkard, it sways like a hut in the wind; so heavy upon it is the guilt of its rebellion that it falls–never to rise again.” (Is 24:20)
We know this is future prophecy because the earth has never reeled like a drunkard, never to rise again.
Well, another massive sinkhole has opened up, this time in Germany:
Giant crater opens up and swallows car in eastern Germany
“A super-sized pothole 20 meters (66 feet) deep suddenly formed early Monday morning in the town of Schmalkalden in the state of Thuringia in eastern Germany. One car precariously stood at the edge of the hole while another had already been lost to bottom of the pit. Yet the homes surrounding the crater remained standing and no one was injured. Several homes in the neighborhood were evacuated and officials warned that more earth could collapse around the hole.
Lutz Katschmann of the state of Thuringia’s environment and geology office said the plan would be to fill in the crater as soon as possible. He said it wasn’t clear why the ground had collapsed…”
Here is The Guardian’s gallery of very good photos of the sinkhole.
