    Default What's with all the disasters lately?

    Is it me or does there seem to be a disproportionate amount of disasters lately.
    I am not saying what it means, but I am hoping that we are that much closer to the Rapture!


    Oh please, please, please come soon Lord Jesus!

    You're correct, and I think it's getting the attention of believers and nonbelievers as well.
    I hope we'll be saying goodbye to this sin filled world soon.

    Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

    I said the same thing to my neighbor a few days ago. I.believe these are God's warnings to get our attention once again focused on Him, but my heart breaks for all who have been affected, both believers and non-believers.
    How can anyone not turn to God in times like these?

    I know the Lord is always with me. I will not be shaken because He is right beside me. Ps. 16:8

    Of course many are blaming man-made climate change.

    Possibility to ponder... Romans 8:19-22 English Standard Version (ESV)

    19 For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God. 20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now.
    "Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God..."

    Matt 24:8, Jesus said All these are the beginnings of sorrows.

    Does "sorrows" there = "Time of Jacob's Trouble"?

    The NIV renders "sorrows" as "birth pains".

    We've said these times we are in are the "braxton hicks contractions", which would equate to the "beginning" of birth pains? But the real birth pains are during the tribulations, right?

    There sure seems to be a lot of "bad" things happening, from storms to rockets and more, but there have always been bad times and good times.

    Since He said these things were the beginning of sorrows, I reckon the seeming convergence of all these signs now is part of the set up/beginning for the 70th week of Daniel's.

    Which would mean our time to boogie out of here is closer.

    But there is also the "fulness of the Gentiles"... so I don't think our departure is strictly gauged by how "bad" things get. Although it certainly seems to be an indicator.

    Thoughts?

    The rapture I think will be the catalyst of what we're witnessing now - a convergence of sorts - that corresponds with the overall arch of prophecy being fulfilled before our eyes.

    Woe to those left behind. We just think life is tough. We have no idea .... Praise the Lord we won't be here then!

    Come soon Lord Jesus - Take us Safely Home

    John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    Psalm 19:14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.

    So kinda "the last straw".

    I think it's intresting how in these times, people come together. BostonStrong, HoustonStrong, etc. Which, it's a good thing, people caring and helping one another, but after the Restrainer is removed, and calamity strikes they will be prepared and ready to come together for OWG, OWR, human power, human spirit. And the deal will be signed or have been signed, and it will be all kumbayah for a hot minute.

    Just some random thoughts popping out -- I am multitasking like a jumping bean over here today, client's have got me hopping!

    Over 50,000 in Bali have been evacuated amid volcanic activity.

    My Rapture/Left Behind Message

    For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God - not by works, so that no one can boast.

    Well, I maintain that the judgment of God is upon the USA. Many things form the constant series of national disasters since Katrina to the purine caprice of the elected President all lead me to that conclusion. I think the point is terminal and beyond debate. Surly it is time to take the gospel to the unsaved.

    As I write the Atlas Fire which burns in Napa and Solano counties in Calipornia is built eight miles form my house. The smoke is overpowering. We have the importaint things packed and ready to go. Some we love who were closer have already evacuated. We may follow within a few hours if wind direction and velocity change for the worse. With ancient Job I realize, the Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away; blesses be the Name of the Lord.

    God's elect have often been resident in lands which He judges. Nevertheless He takes care of them. Our case is no different today.

    Prayers for you and your loved ones, Marvin!

    I do think itís interesting that this is happening in wine country. Makes me think of Isiah 63:3-
    ďI have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with me: for I will tread them in mine anger, and trample them in my fury...Ē though I know thatís not meaning at this time period. And no I donít mean this directed at you personally Marvin. praying

    Praying for your safety and that your house will be spared. We just endured Hurricane Irma here in Florida so I know how it feels to be in harms way. Also, I wanted to scream every time I heard a reporter use the term, "mother nature"!
