People of The West Should Humble Themselves & Repent or Else be Destroyed

KEEP YOUR FINGERS AWAY FROM ETHIOPIA and HER PEOPLE

ITALY WILL BE NEXT

Two weeks ago, I felt something unusual when I read the story on the tragedy in which 11 people were killed by a falling tree during a religious festival on the portugese island of Madeira. Local reports said the 200-year-old oak tree had come crashing down on the crowd outside a church on the hills of the village of Monte, overlooking the capital of Funchal. Children were among the victims who were struck in an area where candles were being sold for the Festa da Senhora do Monte festival. The Festa da Senhora do Monte festival brings thousands of visitors from across the world to the island of Madeira and marks the Assumption, or entry into heaven of the Virgin Mary. Madeira in portuguese = Wood.

The hurricane struck between Corpus Christi, which is Latin for “The Body of Christ”, and Victoria, which is Latin for “Victory”. Harvey means “Blazing Iron”. Citizens of Corpus were told to evacuate and many heeded the warning (the Body of Christ was evacuated). In Revelation 12:5 we discover that the victorious Body of Christ will rule the nations with a rod of iron (see also Rev. 2:26-27) after evacuating earth to a place of safety as a ferocious dragon tries unsuccessfully to devour them (see here, here, and here)

What is interesting is that the hurricane comes from the golf of Mexico, stays in between Corpus Christi and Victoria (snatching up Christians, just thinking here:)) and goes back to the Golf where it almost disappears (‘dropping off’) comes back to the land and vanishes and continues it’s work with the left behind. The Lord is unique and amazing.

First The Eclipse, Now The Hurricane

This past Monday, August 21, 2017, God Almighty sent a sign of Biblical proportions as a warning to what history has dubbed “The Greatest Nation on Earth”.

Historically, solar eclipses are a sign of doom to the Gentile nations. We now know that the very same sign- a solar eclipse- was sent to the people of Nineveh to warn them- REPENT! Or be destroyed! The people of Nineveh heeded the warning- they were remorseful for their wicked ways. As a nation, the people of Nineveh repented of their wickedness. Because of their repentant hearts, God showed the people of Nineveh His Mercy and they were spared from destruction.

Monday’s eclipse was a warning to the people of America- REPENT! Or be destroyed! Unlike the people of Nineveh, who fasted to show their remorse, America chose to do the exact opposite- eat, drink, and be merry! All across the nation, many of the towns and regions along the path of totality threw viewing parties, organized “epic” festivals, and hosted a wide range of other public events and activities in celebration, from live entertainment, various exhibits, food vendors, and memorabilia vendors hawking their celebratory wares to a very unsuspecting public.

As usual, there are the mockers. While it is expected that the world will mock the God of heaven and earth, it is somewhat of a shock to realize that the majority of the body of Christ have no idea that the eclipse is a warning from God and a call to repentance. Even more disheartening is how the church, which is called to be salt and light to this depraved world, largely scoffs at the warning God has sent to this nation. Sadly, in many churches today, the heart of the Gospel message has shifted from sin and redemption to social justice. Second Peter 3 speaks very clearly of this, warning that it will be BELIEVERS who scoff at the notion that Jesus will soon be returning, choosing instead to “follow their own evil desires”. The overall mood in the church today is “come, Lord Jesus, but not too soon!” Others are mocking all aspects of Bible prophecy. Sadly, the disturbing truth is that the “blessed hope” of the Rapture has become the “blasted hope”.

Now that the eclipse is gone and all but forgotten, the parties are over, and America is back to business as usual. In what has now become the “new normal” in this upside down world we live in, evil is called good, and good is called evil. Just two days after the eclipse, the Washington Post published an article blaming Christians for all the woes in the country, all the while defending and cheering satan, claiming satan is the champion of ‘modern culture, science and secular values’.

This is the epitome of Isaiah 5:20: “How terrible it will be for those who call evil good and good evil, who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness, who substitute what is bitter for what is sweet and what is sweet for what is bitter!” How terrible it is for this country, for she brings judgment upon herself!

We know that God is not willing that ANY should perish, so, just as any good Father would do, He is warning His children. In His Grace, Mercy, and undying Love, He is pleading with humanity to stop all the foolishness. Things have gone on long enough, and His Mercy is nearing its end. Judgment is coming, and it’s coming swiftly and fiercely. While the nation as a whole is destined to receive judgment, 1 Peter 4 tells us that judgment begins in the house of God.

Unless you are living under a rock, you are probably aware that there is a massive hurricane hitting the southern coast of Texas. Do you realize that this hurricane appeared out of nowhere? With headlines declaring: “Hurricane Harvey Is Something We’ve Never Seen Before”… ‘You will remember this storm for the rest of your life’ , the real story begins: with 40 inches of rain pouring down, bringing catastrophic flooding to Southeast Texas, it’s an eerie reminder of “the days of Noah” when God judged the wickedness with floodwaters. While we know that God has promised never to completely destroy the earth again by flood, this historic storm has the potential to cause widespread destruction that would challenge citizens and emergency managers to the maximum degree. Sadly, there are still those who chose to stay and celebrate with “Hurricane Parties“… eating, drinking, and merrily watching the storm rather than using common sense and seeking higher ground. Isaiah 5:21 warns: “How terrible it will be for those who are wise in their own opinion, and clever in their own reckoning!”

God sent an eclipse to warn America, but she has not heeded His warning, so, just “as in the days of Noah”, He is sending a flood. He is starting with His house, warning the body of Christ to become battle worthy warriors, but she is captivated and ensnared in the toils of her love for wickedness, substituting darkness for light. The truth is, since no one is heeding His warning with the eclipse, His hand of judgment is now upon this nation, and His judgment has started in the body of Christ- Corpus Christi, Texas. Hurricane Harvey is striking at virtually the center of the nation, where the most church congregations in the US are located, and where the most megachurches in this country are found, which, just like the church of Ephesus, have forsaken their First Love- Jesus Christ. Body of Christ, “Consider how far you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place.” Just “as in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.

Will this judgment be enough to wake up the body of Christ? Or will He have to pour out more judgments upon our land?

many are invited, but few are chosen.” Matthew 22:14
