In my short existence (61 yrs), there has never been a time when there has been so much wide spread disruption. So much so, that it's become cliché to comment on the disruption of "these days".

Take note! He will shake the world a little bit before He comes to shake the world a lot!

All these are the beginning of birth pains.
- Matt 24:8

I am going to shake the heavens and the earth.
- Hag 2:21

He stood, and shook the earth;
     he looked, and made the nations tremble.
The ancient mountains crumbled
     and the age-old hills collapsed
- Hab 3:6
