Australia Burns. Puerto Rico Trembles. Taal Volcano Bellows. What’s Next?
As I write this, I’m shaking my head. What a world we live in. Australians have NEVER witnessed such widespread destructive wildfires like the ones burning now all over their country. Look at this map:
Devastating earthquakes have also recently rocked Puerto Rico, causing widespread damage, loss of life, and leaving most of the island without power:
Far across the ocean, in the Philippines, the sleeping Taal volcano has awakened. Thousands are evacuating. If it blows, millions could die:
Dear friends, make no mistake about it: these catastrophes are all WARNINGS of what is coming on a much larger scale. In a world of false religions, scientific skepticism, pleasure loving and immorality, God is seeking to get our attention. If people refuse to listen to His Word and Holy Spirit, He will speak through terrible disasters. He is speaking now. Notice carefully these words in His last book:
After these things I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, on the sea, or on any tree. Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God. And he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea, saying, “Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.” Revelation 7:1-3
This passage tells us that God’s angels are now holding back “the four winds” of global disaster until His servants are sealed. Then the four winds will be let loose. Then “the time of trouble, such as never was” (Daniel 12:1) will overtake this Planet Earth. But those with “the seal of the living God” (in contrast to those who receive the mark of the beast) will be protected during the final storm.
Believe me, or at least believe the Bible, this storm is coming. God’s holy angels are still holding the four winds. What we are seeing in Australia, Puerto Rico, the Philippines, and in a thousand other places, are all warnings of what will surely flood the world when those winds are finally loosed.
Now is the time to “seek the Lord, while He may be found.” Isaiah 55:6.
Our White Horse Media pocketbook, Making Sense of Deadly Disasters, is perfect for sharing.
May we each find love, hope, salvation and shelter in Jesus Christ, who died for us.
