A Moslem cleric in Iran blames earthquakes on promiscuous women

An Iranian Moslem cleric told worshipers in Tehran recently that promiscuous women are responsible for earthquakes and that Iranians must stick to strict codes of modesty to protect themselves.

The Moslem cleric told the Moslem worshipers that many women who do not dress modestly lead young men astray and spread adultery in society which brings about the increase in earthquakes in his nation and the cleric called for national repentance in Iran.

The Moslem leader said there is no other solution to earthquakes but to take refuge in the Moslem religion and to adapt their lives to Islam's moral codes.

Jimmy's Prophetic Prospective on the News

The claim by the Iranian Moslem cleric that promiscuous women are the cause for earthquakes cannot be proven, but Bible prophecy does call for an increase in earthquakes during the time of the end.

Though the claim by the Iranian Moslem cleric that promiscuous women are the reason for an increase in earthquakes in his country, cannot really be proven, it is interesting to note that tens of thousands of Iranians have died as a result of earthquakes in the last decade. In fact, seismologists have warned that the Iranian capital, Tehran, is situated on a large number of tectonic fault lines and could be hit by a devastating quake in the near future.

The Bible, in a number of passages, does speak of an increase in earthquakes and other ecological judgment on the earth in the last days. Revelation 8 speaks of this judgment when a third part of the trees and all the grass will be burned up on the earth, Revelation 8:7. Verses 8-9 call for a third of the ocean to turn to blood and one third of the fish in the sea to die.

Revelation 16:3-4 calls for the entire ocean to turn to blood and the killing of all the fish, in addition, all the rivers and fountains of water will turn to blood as well. These judgments will take place during the seven year Tribulation Period in the future. Referring to earthquakes, Jesus Christ in His Olivet Discourse, said that an increase in earthquakes was a sign of His soon return to the earth, Matthew 24:7.

The attention to earthquakes given by the Moslem cleric does indeed speak to Bible prophecy that will be fulfilled.
