Lucas 21:11 Haverá grandes terremotos, fomes e pestes em vários lugares, e eventos espantosas, e grandes sinais do céu.
"Calamidades catastróficas estão vindo sobre a terra, não um desses dias em um futuro distante, mas logo-agora! As chuvas torrenciais, padrões climáticos inquietantes, tempestades violentas, enchentes, fomes, secas, terremotos aumentando em freqüência e intensidade, erupções vulcânicas, e uma série de outros sinais dos tempos Jesus nos disse para observar estão acontecendo agora. "
-Jim Bakker em "Prosperidade eo Apocalipse Vinda"
The numbers of deaths are expected to rise as more reports come in from areas in Afghanistan devastated by a pair of weekend earthquakes. O 5.4 e 5.7 quakes were located a few miles apart and struck within a minute of each other on Monday morning. Landslides buried or destroyed at least 20 village homes.
Three deaths have been confirmed but others are feared to have been buried in the landslides.
The BBC reported most of the homes were buried when part of a mountain fell into a valley in the Hindu Kush range.
“The mountain was big and houses were made out of mud,” a security official told the BBC. “You can imagine the devastating impact.”
The quake hit many remote areas in the country making it difficult for emergency vehicles and personnel to reach those impacted by the disaster.
