Storms are Brewing

Make them like tumbleweed, my God,
    like chaff before the wind.
As fire consumes the forest
    or a flame sets the mountains ablaze,
so pursue them with your tempest
    and terrify them with your storm.
Cover their faces with shame, Lord,
    so that they will seek your name.

  • Psalm 83:13-16

“Do not pray for this people or offer any plea or petition for them, because I will not listen when they call to me in the time of their distress.
“What is my beloved doing in my temple
    as she, with many others, works out her evil schemes?
    Can consecrated meat avert your punishment?
When you engage in your wickedness,
    then you rejoice.”
The Lord called you a thriving olive tree
    with fruit beautiful in form.
But with the roar of a mighty storm
    he will set it on fire,
    and its branches will be broken.

  • Jeremiah 11:14-16

In the Spring, the United States has the peak of tornado season.  Starting in June, the focus shifts to the tropics and the creation of hurricanes.  That does not mean that the tornadoes stop, but they start to lessen.

It used to be that there was a specific season for wildfires, but they seem to happen any time, but I suspect that the intensity of wildfires is still near where wildfire season used to be.

Whether these changes were Climate Change related, man-made, or simply inexplainable, I still contend that if this is God’s wrath, we can only stop it by repentance.

Mankind will only make matters worse.

We can only stop the hate by repentance.  I know that the progressives label Christians as the haters, but to hate haters you have to hate.  Calling for repentance means that we recognize sin and turn away from sin, not hate the people who sin.  We would have to hate ourselves in that case because we are not perfect, yet.

Mankind will only make matters worse.

We can only stop the killing and wars by repentance.

Look at the two Scriptures.  Psalm 83 is calling for God to do just about everything that is going on in the weather right now.  And learning from Jeremiah 11, if we push God far enough away from us, He may not listen to our pleas for leniency, especially if they do not come from a repentant heart.

Let us learn from Israel and Judah and repent before it is too late.

Soli Deo Gloria.  Only to God be the Glory.
