Bible Prophecy Commentary: More Warnings …
Many in Texas have experienced unprecedented an overwhelming catastrophe and it goes without saying that we should pray for them. But what if it is God warning this nation to return to Him in sincere repentance and holiness through this tremendous flooding event? If you know your Bible, He has done things like this in the past to ancient Judah and Israel to get their attention. Even Nineveh experienced several disasters before Jonah showed up to preach repentance. Then from the king on down they repented in sackcloth and ashes. And God’s judgment was adverted for a season.
Please do not think lightly of this event as it being too extreme or unnatural. God uses His creation to speak His will whether for correction or mercy – Job 37:13. He has done it in the past and will do it in the future. Please pray for those thousands affected by this terrible and terrifying weather event, that they would be comforted, helped and most of all that they would find the Lord out of all this. This is so important. (Note: Texas has the most mega-churches in the nation at 174).
We remember the Flood in Noah’s day – he preached righteousness for 120 years yet only 8 were saved out of it. Eight out of perhaps millions! We remember Lot of Sodom and Gomorrah, only 4 saved from its total destruction. Folks, God is serious about sin and just as serious about repentance. Read Luke 13:1-5 and see just how serious He is.
“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.” -Luke 21:25-26 (KJV)
We just had a total solar eclipse that sliced America in half in its path. And there is to be another in 2024. It’s time we stopped and carefully weighed how God speaks to us. And the weather is a big sign that speaks of His remedial judgments to get us to return to Him. Signs in the heavens – sun, moon and stars are other means He speaks to us. So if He says these things in His word – the Bible – why do most Christians scoff and mock that these could actually be signs from the hand of God? Great question for our illustrious pastors and church clergy of this post modern period who fail to preach God’s justice manifested in judgments and eventually His wrath.
Friends, it’s time to wake up and observe what Almighty God is trying to tell us. It’s time to seek His face. Not tomorrow or next week or when it’s “convenient” or at another time when things seem better in our lives – now’s the time. Are you saved? He’s coming again for His Bride – those that are really and sincerely saved.
“And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh … Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.” -Luke 21:28, 36 (KJV)
