Shortly before the seven trumpets sound the people on earth will be shaken awake by a worldwide earthquake. It will be different than any previous earthquake because it will be felt all around the world. It will be accompanied by noises, thunder and lightning. This earthquake marks the beginning of the Great Tribulation.
How many earthquakes have you felt in your lifetime? Many people can rememver at least one large quake. But did you know that you have actually lived through thousands of quakes? Earthquakes are happening every day somewhere in the world, and each of these quakes send out seismic waves in all directions-- outward along the surface of the earth and downward into the middle of the earth. Some of these waves are headed in your direction. By the time they reach you, most of these waves are too weak for you to feel any shaking. However, a good seismograph would show you that weak seismic waves are silently vibrating the groung underneath your feet every day.
Our seismometer is sensitive enough to pick up vibrations from such events, even when they occur on the other side of the globe.
The magnitude 8.8 quake was felt as far away as Sao Paulo in Brazil — 1,800 miles to the east.
