Near is the time of wrath
Zephaniah 1:14 -
The great day [time] of the LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day [time] of the LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly.
The flood of Noah which was caused due great Tsunamis in almost 2/3rd of the world, this had also cause the earth to tilt and time to increase from 360 days a year to 365 1/4 days a year (we still follow the 360degree system which existed before the floods). This can also be confirmed by looking at the angle of the high mountain ranges like the Himalayas, they were previous parallel to the then equator. These floods were caused because man had sinned greatly and to top it the fallen angels (then they had their powers) had created a generation of giants through women (they were 13 to 14 feet tall of which King Og was the last and they were much greater than Goliath who was just 9 feet). At that time too it was a triple disaster compromising of earthquake, tsunami and colossal rains and this was before the continents separated. Noah was about 3000 years before Christ (BC).
The second time God took matters very seriously with whole mankind was after the flood and much before the times of Abraham (Abraham existed about 2000BC) when man had only one language so could communicate well with each other. The continents of the world at this period were separated. And at that time the people had lost their relationship with God like Noah and his sons had and they had made gods for themselves. These people were very able and well connected to each other even though they believe in a multitude of gods. They got together and decided to build a city out of cut stones held together by bitumen (slime) which was like cement. The highlight of the city was a tall tower. Scripture notes them saying 'a tower, whose top unto heaven', that does not mean the tower was reaching or almost reaching Heaven. The tower whose remains are still there in Iraq was not even a quarter of the heights of the towers we have now.
What they did is make a united temple and in this tower they had put all their gods together in the intention to join all the powers of all their gods against the real God and Creator of the world. It was this high headedness that angered God and God caused confusion between their beliefs and their languages. Till date this confusion exists and even though all people (other than those who worship Yahweh) worship only one god - Satan the Beast and his various heads (images) they still fight against each other thinking they worship different gods.
Time has come again that sins of man has against accumulated greatly such that God is once again going shake things up but this time they will be concentrated on those who consider themselves great against God. People have once again build towers having various gods in their hearts which are reaching Heaven. Their gods may not be idols (for almost all the gods worshiped today existed during the tower of Babel) they are the modern gods like prosperity, self-security, self-righteousness, being savior to one own self by one's thinking or doings etc..
We saw and are seeing one such start of these times that God bought down a powerful country like Japan which is void of His knowledge to a state that its PM they need to start again from scratch.
Today is a super moon a time when the moon is closest to the earth. People are anxious and expecting disasters like earthquakes and tsunamis. The Lord wants to tell them these things are not happening because of the moon or any other reason other than high headedness against the Kingdom of God.
