38 Keep the words of the prophecy

Suppose you know with certainty that a massive earthquake is imminent. What will you do about it?

Biblical prophecy is not the stuff of 'fortune tellers'. All fulfilled prophecy has been detailed and 100% accurate. All prophecy yet to be fulfilled will also be 100% accurate. Knowledge of what is to come is known to us and this demands action from us.
