Now, check out these Bible quotes:

Haggai 2:6: “This is what the Lord Almighty says: ‘In a little while I will once more shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land."

"The Hebraic numerical value of the Hebrew letters of God's Holy name: YHVH is 26! Something to think about! This matches Haggai 2:6. He is shaking the nations! In His mercy and grace. He'll shake some to save many!," Buddhist blog moonpointer said.

Another Bible quote talks about calamity, the Proverbs 1:26.

"I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh." - King James Bible.

But, Proverbs 3:25-26 has a strong message to everyone:

25 Have no fear of sudden disaster, or of the ruin that overtakes the wicked,

26 for the Lord will be at your side and will keep your foot from being snared.
