Demons - End of the World or Second Coming of Christ?
At approx. 1:30am 1-24-2016 in Alaska my wife and I were woke up to the bed shaking all over the room, very similar to scenes from the movie The Exorcist and no it was not a honeymoon night.
While my wife and I were waken by the Earth Quake she was saying out loud "Oh Jesus" ... "Praise Jesus"
It was quite frightening and it lasted for around 2-3 minutes. 
Picture frames were shaking on the walls, flat screen TV's were rocking back and form and then we heard a bang come from upstairs.
