Sinkholes: Is the Earth swallowing up people and things at a more frequent rate than in the past? I personally had not heard of so many sinkholes reported in past years, compared to what I am currently hearing, and because I think a lot about the End of the Age and the Return of Jesus Christ to Earth, I am wondering if the current rate in which the Earth is swallowing up people and things is a Sign that the End of the Age could be coming upon us.

After all, the Bible tells us that great signs and wonders will be taking place, before the Day of the Lord:
Acts 2:19– ‘AND I WILL GRANT WONDERS IN THE SKY ABOVE AND SIGNS ON THE EARTH BELOW,
BLOOD, AND FIRE, AND VAPOR OF SMOKE.
20- ‘THE SUN WILL BE TURNED INTO DARKNESS
AND THE MOON INTO BLOOD, BEFORE THE GREAT AND GLORIOUS DAY OF THE LORD SHALL COME.
And so with the Acts Chapter 2 Scripture in mind, I report on the latest sinkholes that are swallowing up people and things around the world … and this post is showing the sinkholes that have appeared in the month of MARCH 2013 alone!
Illinois – March 12, 2013
WATERLOO • It sure wasn’t the hole-in-one Mark Mihal had in mind.
While golfing with friends at the Annbriar Golf Course
near here Friday, Mihal, 43, a mortgage broker from Creve Coeur,
abruptly dropped into the ground on the fairway of the 14th hole. It was
the first time a person — and not a ball — has disappeared beneath the
turf in the course’s 20-year history.
It also was the first time in the memory of folks who study sinkholes in Illinois that a person has fallen into one. (Full Article HERE)
Florida – March 5, 2013
Seffner, Florida (CNN) — The ground just swallowed him up.
A Florida man fell into a sinkhole that opened suddenly Thursday night beneath the bedroom of his suburban Tampa home, calling out to his brother for help as he fell, the brother said Friday.
“I ran toward my brother’s bedroom because I heard my brother scream,” Jeremy Bush told CNN’s “AC360.”
“Everything was gone. My brother’s bed, my brother’s dresser, my brother’s TV. My brother was gone.” (Full Article HERE)

When Mark Korb woke up Sunday morning, he noticed the man-made pond on his property
didn’t look the way it did when he went to bed.
“This looks like the moon,” said Korb, pointing at a sinkhole that caused a pond to drain onto his property. (Full Article HERE)
So, could the seeming increase in sinkholes be a Sign? Could we actually be seeing the Acts Chapter 2 Scripture being fulfilled when we hear of another sinkhole opening up in the Earth? And even if sinkholes aren’t a Sign that the End of the Age is upon us, they should make us pause and give thought as to where we will go when we die. And so I ask: are you preparing yourself to meet Jesus Christ when He returns or when you die?
