According to a new report by the British charitable group Oxfam, the number of natural disasters worldwide has increased by more than 400 percent in the last 20 years.
Over 400 percent?
What in the world is going on?
Perhaps this is the beginning of what Jesus was talking about in Luke 21:25-26.....
"There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. Men will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken."
Below is a portion of the source article:
The number of natural disasters around the world has increased by more than four times in the last 20 years, according to a report released by the British charity Oxfam. Oxfam analyzed data from the Red Cross, United Nations and researchers at Louvain University in Belgium. It found that the earth is currently experiencing approximately 500 natural disasters per year, compared with 120 per year in the early 1980s. The number of weather-related disasters in 2006 was 240, compared with 60 in 1980.
