Days Shortened for the Elect's Sake

For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
Mat 24:21-22

Most of you know this, but the earthquake in Chile a few days ago had an interesting effect on this whirling ball in space we call the Earth. It was moved on it's axis.

This evening on the news the result of this shift was revealed. Days will be shorter. True only a millionth and a half of a second...but what happens as more and more earthquakes occur on the Pacific Rim of Fire, where this latest earthquake occurred?

I was at my desk and looked up at the television as they began talking about the effect of the shift. What I saw on the screen was "Days Shortened". I kind of got goosebumpy and believe this is just the beginning of the days being shortened.

That also tells me that we are right at the cusp of the start of the great tribulation (if not already into the very beginning days of it)

This should not cause fear in anyone, but a rejoicing that we are that much closer to being with our Heavenly Father. Rejoice! For your Redemption draws nigh.

Great post! This is not the first shortening of day, large earthquakes in the past have shortened days as well!! Praise God : ) Be blessed!

I was just thinking about this the other day. These days have been cut short for some time. Ask yourself when you started to feel the days and months passing by. How it feels like you have not enough time in the day...You can talk to people thoughout the world and they will tell you the same thing. "It feels like time is just passing by."
