Earthquake location 10.680°S, 166.391°E
A major 6.1 magnitude earthquake hit Santa Cruz Islands on Wednesday, January 30, 2013 at 23:03:43 UTC, at a depth of 35.1 km (21.8 mi). 

During the last 27 months, there have been at least 221 major (>5.9) earthquakes, which have been reported on this site.  

Jesus said these signs would appear before He returns, "Nation will rise against nation, kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines, pestilences and earthquakes in divers places" Matthew 24:7.

Although the frequency of earthquakes has increased exponentially over the last several years, the United States Geographical Survey (USGS) frequently and consistently does not include many high magnitude earthquakes in their "significant" quake filtering.  I am unable to find high magnitude quakes on a regular basis at USGS, which other sites report.     

The real and drastic increases in the frequency and magnitude of earthquakes are deliberately being withheld from US citizens.  It is becoming more and more difficult to find truth in news media, especially if it involves news that will "disturb the sleepy slumber" of this nation!

The Word of God says, "When they say, 'Peace and safety,' then sudden destruction will come upon them, as travail upon a woman with child, and they (the wicked) shall not escape" 1 Thessalonians 5:3.

Jesus also said, "Blessed are those servants whom the Master, when He comes, will find watching" Luke 12:37.
