Humans have long dreamed of building spaceships, all the while riding on one that provides everyone with billions of free air miles every day of their lives.
"great earthquake ... the sea and the waves roaring"
There is another way that the earth is moving, a way that makes itself far more noticeable than those described above - a titanic natural movement of earthly power that is often very deadly and tragic to humanity.
The planet on which we live is neither solid nor smooth. It's far from being like a lifeless billiard ball. Inside, churning, molten rock is found in the depths to the core. The surface crust has many cracks and holes, and is actually moving - all of which are natural dynamic forces which began at The Seven Days Of Creation.
"Plate Tectonics" is the term used to describe the sections of the earth's surface that in places grind against one another (e.g. the huge San Andreas fault system that runs up through Mexico and into California), or in others pull away (look at a world map to see how the west coast of Africa and the east coast of South America once fitted together perfectly).
Geological faults are relatively harmless during the years that they are building up pressure as they attempt to slide past one another, but when the joint suddenly slips and releases the incredible tension that has built up, earthquakes happen. Along with them, if an earthquake occurs at sea, great ocean waves can be created that travel hundreds of miles at hundreds of miles per hour before slamming ashore with horrendous loss of life.
Bible prophecy describes the time just before Christ's return in which there will be "great earthquake" and "the waves roaring"
"And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven. The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly. And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of His Christ; and He shall reign for ever and ever." (Revelation 11:13-15 KJV)
