In his vision of the end times, the Apostle John described seeing an earthquake that he described the biggest earthquake the world has ever seen (Revelation 16:17-20).
It would split a city, that he called Babylon into three parts and destroy cities in neighboring nations.
In the verse, Johns saw islands fleeing and mountains disappearing which suggests that the shake was so massive it caused islands and mountains to shift (Revelation 16:20) or perhaps to be wiped out by tsunamis.
The Daily Mail reports that the recent earthquake in Turkey says it was so powerful that it actually shifted the nation of Turkey by upwards of 10 feet (ca. 3 m).
According to one Italian seismologist, satellite images reveal that Turkey could have moved as much as 18 feet (5.49 m) in relation to its neighbor, Syria, also hit by the earthquake.
Turkey was hit by two massive earthquakes, 7.8 and 7.5 magnitudes, on Monday, Feb 6, 2023. According to recent reports, the death toll is over 5,000 and still climbing.
Despite all the devastation and death, at 7.8, the Turkey earthquake isn’t even the largest earthquake the world has ever seen.
That record is held by the 9.5 magnitude Valdivia Earthquake that hit Chile in 1960. The resulting tsunamis that reached New Zealand and Japan, killed 61 people in Hawaii while en route.
In his vision, John emphasized the power of the earthquake several times, writing “there was a great earthquake, such as there had not been since mankind came to be upon the earth, so great an earthquake was it, and so mighty.“
I suspect that the earthquake that John witnessed, will not just squeak by Chile’s record, it is going to smash it.
