ARE RECENT HURRICANES THE JUDGMENT OF GOD?
DID AMERICA’S LEADERS CAUSE HURRICANES TO PUMMEL PUERTO RICO AND FLORIDA BY PUSHING ISRAEL TO GIVE UP LAND?
King tide – The strongest gravitational pull between the earth, sun and moon.
Jupiter, the King planet, is also at its closest approach to earth – the King is near. The battle is here.
The nations (the sun) are in an uproar.
Daniel 2:21 – And He (God) changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings;
14 “kings” or world rulers have been replaced in 2022 and more will likely come.
What about those “kings without kingdoms” of Revelation 17:12–the CEOs of major corporations that operate outside government controls to control you?
(GRX CEOs) According to the Challenger, Gray & Christmas Report, 832 CEOs resigned from January through July in the US alone.
While nations and kings are in chaos…
The church (the moon) is fighting to arise and shine.
The spiritual tension is so dramatic and so intense because the demonic realm knows it’s out of time.
I believe King Jesus is right here waiting in the tension of it all just like when Elisha pointed to the hills and revealed what Gehazi could not see with his natural eyes.
King Jesus and his angel armies are here Just waiting to hear the words “Go get your bride.”
GOD DOESN’T CAUSE NATURAL DISASTERS. THE ENEMY DOES WHEN GOD LIFTS HIS HAND OF PROTECTION.
WHY WOULD GOD DO THAT? WE’LL GET TO THAT IN A MINUTE.
HOW DOES GOD SPEAK A PROPHETIC WORD THROUGH A HURRICANE?
TROPICAL DEPRESSION 7 (fullness, end of a timeline) BECAME HURRICANE FIONA:
Fiona (fair, pale) hit Puerto Rico (Rich Port – our worldly wealth and security) on 9/18 (triple fruit OR judgment of death) at 3:20 pm
Revelation 3:20 – Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.
TROPICAL DEPRESSION #9 (fruit bearing or judgment of death) BECAME HURRICANE IAN
On 9/28, Ian (God is gracious) category 4 (4 corners of the world) made landfall at Fort Myers (protected place of the steward).
- The words “end of the world” show up 28 times in scripture including in Proverbs 28:28, Job 28:28
WINDS OF 150 MPH
150th verse in OT – Genesis 6:12 – So God looked upon the earth and indeed it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth.
150th verse of NT – Matthew 6:12 – And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors.
WHAT ARE THE ODDS BOTH WOULD BE 6/12 (6+6+6)?
Most searched 6:12 verse in the Bible:
Ephesians 6:12 – for our struggle is not against flesh and blood but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
(GRX PUNTA GORDA) Despite taking a direct hit with winds of 155, the city of Punta Gorda (Fat Point) saw less devastation that most.
In Hebrew, the number 8 literally means fatness, as in a woman 8 months pregnant.
(Refusal to repent brings judgment)
155th verse of OT
Genesis 6:17 – And behold, I Myself am bringing floodwaters on the earth, to destroy from under heaven all flesh in which is the breath of life; everything that is on the earth shall die.
(The right posture, repentance, brings mercy)
155th verse of NT – Matthew 6:17 – But you, when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face,
Revelation 6:17 – “For the great day of His wrath has come, and who is able to stand?”
THOSE WHO ARE REPENTANT!
WHO WOULD GOD’S WRATH BE FOR? THE PEOPLE OF FLORIDA? NO!
