March Madness

March is turning out to be quite a devastating month.  Understand the Times reports that on March 6th, a Hawaii volcano erupted, or rather, erupted again...

March 6 - Hawaii volcano spews lava 65 feet high after crater collapse

A new vent has opened at one of the world's most active volcanoes, sending lava shooting up to 65 feet high, scientists at Kilauea volcano said Sunday.

The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory said the fissure eruption was spotted shortly after the floor at the Pu'u O'o crater collapsed around 5 p.m. Saturday. It occurred along the middle of Kilauea's east rift zone, about 2 miles west of Pu'u O'o.

Babb told the Hawaii Tribune-Herald that the fissure has expanded to about 535 yards long.

Another event happened on March 6th, UTT reports northerb Chile was hit by a quake.

A magnitude-6.2 earthquake has shaken a northern region of Chile, but no injuries or major damages have been reported. 

These terrible tragedies are not pointing to themselves, but to a greater hope. 

7 "For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes. 8 "But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.

Matt 24:7-8 (NASB95)
30 "And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the SON OF MAN COMING ON THE CLOUDS OF THE SKY with power and great glory.
Matt 24:30 (NASB95)
9 And the LORD will be king over all the earth; in that day the LORD will be the only one, and His name the only one.
Zech 14:9 (NASB95)
All these signs are pointing beyond themselves.  They are pointing to the nearing return of the son of God.  If you do not know Him personally, have never exeperienced forgiveness of sins and spiritual rebirth, there is still time to turn from your sins and cry out to God.  All who call on the name of the Lord shall be saved (Rom. 10:13).

If you wish to know more about Jesus, start reading in the gospel of John.  (

13 "I bring near My righteousness, it is not far off; And My salvation will not delay. 
And I will grant salvation in Zion, And My glory for Israel.     Isaiah 46:13 (NASB95)
