Is God Trying to Tell Us Something?

Did you know that in the past seven days, there has been 224 earthquakes? There are wars and rumors of war. There is famine and despair. It is hard not to believe that we will see End of Time during this generation. Perhaps there is something to this 2012 thing that seems to foretell that our days are certainly numbered.

Like many, I woke up this morning to the news of the 8.8 magnitude earthquake in Chile. The impact of this quake has Hawaii - over 6000 miles away - bracing for an inevitable Tsunami. I thought to myself that surely this is yet another sign that the end is near. But then I thought about a conversation I had with my Brother about the end of the world.
During that conversation, he reminded me that God always warned the people of impending doom. We see this in the case of Noah before the flood, with Moses and Pharaoh, and with Lot and Sodom and Gomorrah. What is troubling, however, is that these warnings were not heeded and therefore, God's wrath was felt.

My Brother talked about that maybe, just maybe, end of the world prophecies are not prophecies at all but rather warnings of what will come if we do not change. An interesting thought that each prophesied devastating event actually being a warning for us to change our ways and avoid what will be the inevitable if we don't. And as interesting is the fact that God has a way of always letting us know what is truly important. Think about it. While we are fighting against each other about health care, unemployment, foreclosures, and taxes somewhere in the world something happens where the world must join together to care for the health of others, work to restore a devastated region, put roofs over the heads of the homeless, and pay for it all with a smile because its the right thing to do. 

There is no doubt about it! God is trying to tell us something. The question is, will we listen?
