What a Week It's Been

It's been a week to remember: hurricane-force winds, temps 25 degrees above normal, what little snow we had is melted now, and a plane crashing into an office building in downtown. By the time the winds reached their peak, there were wide-spread power outages from north Anchorage all the way to Wasilla (some 45 miles as the eagle flies) from trees falling on trunk lines.

This morning it's in the low 30s F., with scattered light rain showers. That's still 15 degrees above normal. And that's just here, around Anchorage.

Freak snowstorms across the Lower 48, heat waves, tornadoes, massive flooding ... the list goes on and on.

But all this got me to thinking (a dangerous pastime, I know) about unusual weather patterns. In the Bible, the Lord has used freakish weather as a harbinger of sovereign acts wherein He took an active role in events.

At the risk of going out on a prophetic limb, I'm keeping an eye on politics and conflicts around the world. And especially on Israel, and the various Islamic threats to that nation.

I expect unprecedented and unusual signs and wonders in the next weeks, both around the world and in this country. Yes, I could be wrong ... but I don't think so.

It's all going according to the Book.

In the meantime, let me wish each of you a happy, safe, and prosperous new year!

Thank you, Linda.

I'm afraid, signs and wonders-wise, the once Christian nation of the United States is heading full bore for a major corrective smack down.

Rev. Paul said...

PH, you may well be correct: the Lord has always sent flooding & earthquakes to nations as a warning, when a judgment is pending.

Here's hoping for a blessed and prosperous 2016 culminating in the removal of the current regime.

Rev. Paul said...

From your mouth to God's ears, Ed.

exactly. we live in interesting times. i prefer humdrum.

Rev. Paul said...

We all wish for that, deborah, but the Word tells us that God orders the generations. That means we've been put here, at this time, because God has gifted (or will shortly gift) us with something that the world needs.

Rev. Paul, What the world needs is to Pray to our Lord.

Rev. Paul said...

And then submit to Him. You're right, sir.

Happy New Year Dear Friend To You and Your Family.
I have no doubt you're right with your post.
