California Fires. Judgments from God? Are We Ready for the Future?
Once again, my home state is burning. As of this writing, here’s a few quick facts:
Kincade Fire in Northern California:
—This wildfire has burned an area more than twice the size of San Francisco and destroyed nearly 60 homes.
—wind gusts reaching as high as 50 mph
—By 7 a.m. Tuesday, the Kincade Fire has grown to 75,415 acres.
—The fire is 15% contained.
—The blaze has destroyed 124 structures, 57 of which were residential homes.
—More than 90,000 homes are at risk.
Getty Fire in Southern California:
—California’s largest utility, Pacific Gas & Electric, warned that nearly 4 million people could soon be in the dark.
—This fire has burned over 650 acres and is 5% contained.
Look closely at the picture below, and at the posts beneath it.
To me, this looks so apocalyptic. Two fires, one in Los Angeles (near where I grew up), and the other devastating wine country in the north. Two comments on this CBSN website refer to these as God’s judgments. Unfortunately, many more devastations like these are coming. Notice also the words on the sign behind the reporter: “IS YOUR HOME READY?” Reading this, I can’t help but think that we should all be asking ourselves, Are we ready for the future? Are those in my home ready? Am I personally ready?
May the good Lord Jesus help us all!
This is also another opportunity to give out literature, such as our inexpensive pocketbooks, Making Senses of Deadly Disasters, The Coming Judgments of God, and Secrets of Inner Peace. To order from White Horse Media, call 1-800-782-4253.
I’m sure everyone in the wake of these fierce fires would appreciate our prayers.
