A Call to Repentance
First, disasters serve as a wake up call to repentance for
Disasters can have a sobering effect upon the human mind.
When a war
breaks out, or an earthquake destroys countless lives and
or a drought burns the crops and dries up the water supply,
epidemic disease victimizes millions of persons, many people
call out to God either in curse or prayer. C. S. Lewis wrote
that "pain is God's megaphone to a deaf world."
It was an earthquake that caused the jailer at Philippi to
"Men, what must I do to be saved?" (Acts 16:30). It was a
that sent King Ahab searching everywhere for the prophet
Kings 18:10). It was a plague that brought Pharoah to his
confessing before Moses: "I have sinned against the Lord
and against you. Now therefore, forgive my sin, I pray you,
this once, and entreat the Lord your God only to remove this
from me" (Ex 10:16-17).
In His Olivet Discourse Jesus predicted that certain
occur before His Return. Because of their nature and
can call these calamities "signs of divine judgment."
Jesus said: "And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars;
you are not alarmed; for this must take place, but the end
yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom
kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in
places: all this is but the beginning of the sufferings"
8; cf. Mark 13:7-8). Luke adds "pestilences" to the listing
calamities (Luke 21:11).
The manifestation of divine judgment through calamities is
to summon people to repent. The prophet Joel, for example,
a disastrous drought and fire which destroyed the harvest,
pasture, and the trees and dried up the water brooks (Joel
19-20). In the context of this calamity, the prophet calls
people to repent: "Awake, you drunkards, and weep; and wail,
drinkers of wine, ... Sanctify a fast, call a solemn
Gather the elders and all the inhabitants of the land to the
of the Lord your God; and cry to the Lord" (Joel 1:5, 14).
An Announcement of the Final Judgment
Second, disasters are used by God not only to summon people
repentance, but also to announce His final judgment which is
associated with the Day of the Lord in the Old Testament and
the Day of Christ's Coming in the New Testament. For
sees the historical famine described above as a sign that
of the Lord is near, and as destruction from the Almighty it
In the prophetic perspective, disasters such as wars,
and famines not only reveal God's immediate judgment upon
ungodliness and wickedness (Rom 1:18), but are also
the final judgment to come. They constantly remind mankind
Judge is standing at the doors (James 5:9). "Every report of
calamity by sea or land," states Ellen White, "is a
testimony to the
fact that the end of all things is at hand." (Evangelism, p.
A Pledge of the Certainty of the End
A third noteworthy aspect of calamities is that they serve
to the certainty of the approaching End. Jesus spoke of
earthquakes, famines, and pestilences as disasters occurring
exclusively at the very end but during the whole time
Return. This point is implied in the admonition not to be
the occurrence of these signs "for this must take place, but
is not yet" (Matt 24:6; Mark 13:7; Luke 21:9). In fact,
are said to represent "but the beginning of the sufferings"
24:8; Mark 13:8).
The latter expression was used in Judaism in a technical way
describe the period of suffering ("the birth-pangs of the
that would precede the establishment of the messianic
Possibly Jesus made use of this familiar concept to
conditions that will precede His Return. The occurrences of
earthquakes, famines, and pestilences do not pinpoint but
the approaching End. They constitute a pledge that the End
By saying that wars, earthquakes, famines, and pestilences
the beginning of the sufferings" (Matt 24:8; Mark 13:8),
clearly implied that they will intensify as the End
the beginning" presupposes that there will be more and worse
disasters yet to come. These will cause such a "great
that, Jesus said, "if those days had not been shortened, no
being would be saved" (Matt 24:22; cf. Mark 13:20).
Christ's prediction of the intensification of calamities
End finds support in the prophetic books of the Old and New
Testaments. These books, as I have shown in The Advent Hope
Human Hopelessness, predict an intensification of warfare
disasters prior to the Coming of the Lord. (If you do not

Both natural and man-made disasters are increasing today in
different parts of the world. Through natural cataclysms and
made environmental crises, God is announcing His impending
upon human rebellion and is calling people to repent before
The unprecedented fulfillment in our time of the signs of
judgment predicted by Christ is a clear harbinger of the
final judgment that Christ will soon execute upon mankind at
Second Coming. Through natural disasters like Tsunami God is
upon unbelievers to repent and upon believers to live holy
lives while "waiting for and hastening the coming of the day
(2 Pet 3:11-12).
