I cannot believe the mentality of you Guys it is an earthquake for God’s sake
I was in the bath and I felt it I was like
i doh feel nothing nuh what kind of earthquake is that nuh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
6.4 is a strong earthquake. I missed the news this morning and early evening. I hope it did not damage areas where it first hit and there were no injuries and loss of life. However, considering the strength of the earthquake, it would be a miracle if no damage and injuries occurred.
Two years ago I felt one in Toronto which was 5.0. All buildings were shaking and swaying. All indoor contents as also fridge and stove were swaying. It was scary. Thank God it subsided and nothing fell in my home.
We had a mild one this summer. I felt it. We never know when the worst will occur.
We are in October; no snow yet and the weather is still warm. We had a few cool days in September; even in May and June. Unusual weather. I do not mind this continuing warm weather at all throughout winter. Wishful thinking.
At this time we could have had snow. It is said this type of weather is called “Indian summer.” I told someone I have never enquired why it is called Indian summer. I will ask someone who knows in the TV Media.
It is a heat wave during the fall. It was at this sunny time that the Native Americans would complete their harvest for the winter.
God is reminding us to wake up change our ways not only in time of trouble we should call his name. The last days are approaching lets concern our selves and not get hung up on green, blue or red. We should be prepared the bible said he will come like a thief in the night, are we ready???

The writing is on the wall. The earth is trembling. The Bible said in the last days perilous time will come. Crimes, wars, earthquakes in divers places, men shall be lovers of themselves more than lovers of God. All a know, and should say, we must change our wicked ways and turn to the Lord God Almighty. Love.
The world is going further and further away from the Creator of Heaven and earth.
