The Spirit of God is Being Withdrawn
The time is at hand when there will be sorrow in the world that no human balm can heal. The Spirit of God is being withdrawn. Disasters by sea and by land follow one another in quick succession. How frequently we hear of earthquakes and tornadoes, of destruction by fire and flood, with great loss of life and property! Apparently these calamities are capricious outbreaks of disorganized, unregulated forces of nature, wholly beyond the control of man; but in them all, God's purpose may be read. They are among the agencies by which He seeks to arouse men and women to a sense of their danger.
- Ellen White, Prophets and Kings, p. 277
These prophetic words from Ellen White show that the end times are here. The disasters mentioned above will just keep on coming (more frequent, and more lethal). God will make Himself known, and will give you some time to repent (but not forever obviously).
