I just wanna share that I heard people of God said there will be 9-10 richter scale mega historical earthquake hit california. Now God is calling for repentance. Please accept Jesus as your only savior. The mega historical earthquake is a sign of His coming to rapture the church. Prepare the way in an absolute repentance, righteousness, and holiness. Otherwise, you will be left behind and face the great tribulation on earth

Can I get an Amen for GC!?

HECK Gal Cann I thought I was the only girl you called Dudette on here. <~~~~Stomping off with tears flowing from the only thing still pretty on the old gal, blue eyes. DANA--I am newly 53 yrs old, and I have to tell you I have heard this story all my life. I have lived through the earthquake that destroyed my house and took it right off the foundation in Whittier '87. I still believe the big one is coming and the good Lord doesnt have anything to do with it. In case you havent read the scientific books a quake of 7+ is enough to flatten a town and a 8+ will totally level every city within 20 miles of that fault line. The Whittier quake nearly did that, given old buildings too, and it was lowered to a 5.7 I think from a 6.3. KB---tossing in my AMEN for GC just cause he is my hero :)~~~
