Northern Israel was shaken by four small earthquakes in less than 24 hours on Wednesday and though it is impossible to absolutely predict seismic activity, seismologists warn that the region is due for a major shake-up. The recent earthquakes hint at deeper meanings. One mystic predicted 80 years ago that major earthquakes in Israel would precede the War of Gog and Magog, making the earth-shattering changes necessary to bring the Messiah.

The first earthquake hit at around 4:50 a.m., followed by another at around 10:45 p.m..Two more followed at around midnight and 1:30 a.m., all registering aout 4.2 on the Richter Scale with their epicenter approximately 5.5 miles north of Tiberias.
