A second earthquake within a week has hit Greece. The tremors from the 6.0 magnitude earthquake that hit early this morning, Oct 19, 2021, were felt as far away as Egypt and Israel.
Though the epicentre of the earthquake was underneath the Mediterranean Sea, the earthquake was so deep that no tsunamis are expected as a result.
So far, there have been no reports of deaths, injury or damage.
The Greek island of Crete was hit by a 6.3 magnitude earthquake the previous week (Tuesday, Oct 12, 2021), destroying dozens of homes and killing one person. This earthquake resulted in a small tsunami in the Mediterranean Sea that resulted in evacuation along the southern coast of the island.
According to The Guardian, before this earlier quake struck, community leader, Alexandra Papathanasaki, reported that “the sea was sucked in, the rocks appeared and then the quake happened,”

I have talked several times about Jesus’ warning of an increase in both the number of earthquakes (Matthew 24:7) and size of earthquakes (Luke 21:11) as we enter the birth pang phase of the end times.
However, what I haven’t discussed was Jesus’ statement in Luke that the world’s oceans would be affected as well. This dramatic increase in ocean activity, that is described as ‘roaring’ seas and waves (a possible reference to tsunamis), would both ‘distress’ and ‘perplex,’ the nations of the world:
25 “There will be signs in the sun and moon and stars, and on the earth distress among nations, in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves.” (Luke 21:25 NASV)
