Romans 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
Another storm of the Century! How many does that make now?
Was it caused by "climate change", as the godless media, especially NPR, is trying to tell us, and those wanting to fleece the public treasury want us to believe?
"Did Obama increase the power and path of Sandy with HAARP, including Aerosol Dumps", one e-mail asked this morning.
Geo-Engineering... Speculations will abound all the way from Alex Jones (conspiracy) to national news media (man caused "Climate Change").
Sandy has given the prognosticators an abundance of speculative theories to last for years. Sandy has given the "wise men of this world" many opportunities to cry out "the sky is falling", scaring people into letting the opportunists again raid the "pubic" treasury to keep the "sky from falling". "With enough money", we will be assured, "we can prevent another superstorm!"
Was Sandy man made, increased or even caused by the actions of man?
There are already many speculations and many more will come as to how man created the conditions for Sandy, and how he can control those conditions.
Beyond any doubt it was man made.
Deut 28:15 But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee: 16 Cursed shalt thou be in the city, and cursed shalt thou be in the field. 45 ¶ Moreover all these curses shall come upon thee, and shall pursue thee, and overtake thee, till thou be destroyed; because thou hearkenedst not unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which he commanded thee: 46 And they shall be upon thee for a sign and for a wonder, and upon thy seed for ever. 47 Because thou servedst not the LORD thy God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the abundance of all things;
The Law as given to Moses in Deuteronomy 27-29, clearly tells us that the actions of man result in the actions of "nature". Nature will be either a friend or foe to man, according to man's relationship to nature's God, the Creator of all things visible, and invisible.
I realize there are Arminians, Calvinists, and even those who profess the Reformed Faith who deny the above is for our day.
New York City was at the heart of the American Revolution, a revolution with the purpose of religious freedom to worship the Lord God. Today, New York City is the home of the international Banksters, including the FED. It is a filthy city that needs a good cleansing in the blood of Christ.
But the wicked there deny and even militate against the only answer for cleanliness. It was only a few months ago that the city of New York forbad churches from using the "Public Schools" for religious services. Many churches had no place else to meet. I think that because of the public outcry, the city backed down some, and let some churches back in.
A verse we have referred to several times, and should be very familiar to us by now:
Ecclesiastes 8:11 Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.
1) 1:16, salvation is not to be found in big government, nor in anything man can imagine. The Gospel alone provides Salvation.
Biblical Salvation must be defined in its Biblical meaning that is, deliverance, preservation, victory and health, and it refers to material and temporal deliverance, as well as personal, national, temporal and eternal triumph. Salvation is not escapism from the trials and temptations of this present life. It is victory through Christ in the midst of everything that is going on around us in this evil world. Salvation is victory over the world, the flesh and the devil. 1 John 2:14-19, 3:8, Hebrews 2:14, 2 Timothy 2:26. Thus, salvation involves much more than assured eternal life. It is very much how to live for Christ here in this life. It is how to be salt and light in a dark, evil world. It is letting our light shine, so that others will see our good works and glorify our Father which is in heaven. Matthew 5:13-16.
Notice the many things in the above statement that people expect from the state:
"deliverance, preservation, victory and health, and it refers to material and temporal deliverance, as well as personal, national, temporal and eternal triumph."
Biblical Salvation always involves judgment against all man-made gods.
Job 31:24 If I have made gold my hope, or have said to the fine gold, Thou art my confidence; v. 40 Let thistles grow instead of wheat, and cockle instead of barley. The words of Job are ended.
Hope in anything other than the Lord God results in hopeless nature. There are 23 "hope" verses like the one below in Scripture:
Psalms 42:5 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.
We cannot let our surrounding distressing circumstances disquiet us, for our hope is God.
I fully expect the election to be stolen by Obama.
"BREAKING: NAACP Takes Over Houston Polling Station, Advocates for President Obama". The NAACP is handing out water to those in line, and even moving some up to the front of the line. Though totally illegal to do anything within 100 ft of the poling place, the officials from the state house down have placed their approval on NAACP's activities.
There have been many reports of the electronic voting machines being rigged to vote for Obama regardless of what the voter wants. That was the primary purpose of going electronic. To make matters even worse NJ voters will be allowed to vote by e mail. Fraud will be rampant. How much longer will the "wild side" of Americans remain subdued? The chains are ready for the terrorists, defined as anyone against the powers who have control at the time.
The "left" can steal an election, and nothing will be said. But if the "right" makes a wrong turn, the entire media is on them like a duck on a June Bug.
Psalms 42:5 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.
2) Romans 1:17, the righteousness of God defined in Deuteronomy 27-29 is required in order to inherit the blessings of God as promised there.
3) v. 18 is very applicable for us today: For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
4) vv. 19ff. Paul now starts down through the things that bring about the wrath of God from heaven. Moreover, men are without excuse, for all of creation reveals his eternal power and Godhead.
5) v. 21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. V. 21 starts the downward trend that leads to God's wrathful vengeance against man's hardness in sin.
* the foolishness of the wise, particularly
the foolishness of those who think they can control the weather.
* foolish man serves the gods of his own imagination.
* persisting in their rejection of the Lord God, and determined to serve their self-made gods, the Lord turns the wicked over to the gods of their imagination.
"Devastated Rockaways residents lash out at Bloomberg during unannounced visit." New York Post In the interview, a woman was screaming at the mayor of NY, crying out for her savior, big government, to come help her.
Sandy has obviously shown that there is not saviour nor hope outside of the Lord.
"In New York's Public Housing, Fear Creeps In With the Dark" New York Times, 11/3/12. They show what it is like living in public housing in the dark. It is extremely dangerous as the terrorist mobs roam the streets looking for things to steal.
Their self-made god which has provided the big warfare checks is unable to protect them when the lights go out. They have found out that their god is powerless when the need is the greatest.
Their god could not even supply clean drinking water, though he had many days to prepare. Though FEMA is promoted by Big Government fans as being prepared for disasters, and though they had many days warning of what Sandy was going to do, they ran out of water within a day, and there is still no water available.
Over half of the gas stations were without electricity, causing mile long lines at the pumps that worked. The chaos in those lines became so dangerous that police had to guard the lines. The DOD came in with free gas, which led to even greater chaos. Again, the police had to step in.
"Queens residents arm themselves in the post-storm blackout from looters." The Daily News. 9/4. Their god cannot protect them, producing great fear.
NBC news, Sandy-Starved New Yorkers Dumpster Dive.
The media has poked fun at those who have tried to lay up a store of food. The president has even identified those kind of people terrorists. But they are not having to dumpster dive for food that has been thrown out by grocery stores.
Terrorists are those who prepare for difficult times; they arm themselves for self protection. Terrorists are not those who are pillaging and destroying.
Terrorists are military veterins who can defend themslves.
The chains are ready for the terrorists who want to be self-sustained, who do not need Big Brother to care for them.
* the silence of the Christian community against
the false god of the state shows approval.
* of course, sodomy is included in this list. New York is known for its promotion of the sodomites, as thy proudly parade through the streets on "Gay Pride Day." And the New York police persecute the Christians who might protest the sodomites.
6) 2:1, the men of 1:21-32 are without excuse as they serve their man made gods.
7) v. 2, God's judgment is according to his righteousness as revealed in his law as delivered to Moses.
Thy testimonies that thou hast commanded are righteous and very
Psalms 119:137 TZADDI. Righteous art thou, O LORD, and upright are thy judgments.
8) v. 3, Oh, how foolish of man to think he can escape the judgment of God.
Disbelief in the righteousness of God does not exempt one from his righteous judgment.
9) v. 4 God is patient and merciful, yet he is just:
But he, being full of compassion, forgave their iniquity, and
destroyed them not: yea, many a time turned he his anger away,
and did not stir up all his wrath.
Psalms 86:15 But thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth.
Exodus 34:6 And the LORD passed by before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, The LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth, 7 Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children"s children, unto the third and to the fourth generation.
God's longsuffering and mercy will not overlook nor clear the guilty.
10) vv. 5, 6, God's purpose in his goodness, forbearance and longsuffering is lead men to repentance.
Titus 3:4 But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, 5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;
His longsuffering is with a purpose. However, if man does not repent, harsh judgement will come.
11) v. 5, treasurest up wrath... That is to say, like a dam, God's goodness, forbearance and longsuffering holds back his wrathful judgment. But his mercy will not last forever
2 Corinthians 6:2 (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.) before his longsuffering changes to wrathful judgment.
Lastly, 12) vv. 8, 9, But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile;
1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
Wrath reveled from heaven:
Exodus 9:23 And Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven: and the LORD sent thunder and hail, and the fire ran along upon the ground; and the LORD rained hail upon the land of Egypt.
Exodus 10:13 And Moses stretched forth his rod over the land of Egypt, and the LORD brought an east wind upon the land all that day, and all that night; and when it was morning, the east wind brought the locusts.
Job 37:10 By the breath of God frost is given: and the breadth of the waters is straitened. 11 Also by watering he wearieth the thick cloud: he scattereth his bright cloud: 12 And it is turned round about by his counsels: that they may do whatsoever he commandeth them upon the face of the world in the earth. 13 He causeth it to come, whether for correction, or for his land, or for mercy.
Job 38:33 Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth? 34 Canst thou lift up thy voice to the clouds, that abundance of waters may cover thee? 35 Canst thou send lightnings, that they may go, and say unto thee, Here we are? 36 Who hath put wisdom in the inward parts? or who hath given understanding to the heart? 37 Who can number the clouds in wisdom? or who can stay the bottles of heaven,
Deut 28, 29 clearly show us that when man wars against God, God's nature wars against him, and we know who will win.
The Lord told Job that he alone tells the weather events, no matter how large or small, where to take place.
Job 1:1 There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil.
Yet when this perfect and upright man who feared God and hated evil, understood who God was, he abhorred himself, and repented in dust and ashes.
Job 42:1 Then Job answered the LORD, and said, 2 I know that thou canst do every thing, and that no thought can be withholden from thee. 3 Who is he that hideth counsel without knowledge? therefore have I uttered that I understood not; things too wonderful for me, which I knew not. 4 Hear, I beseech thee, and I will speak: I will demand of thee, and declare thou unto me. 5 I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee. 6 Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes.
How foolish can man be to think the winds, rain and storms can be made to answer to him. Furthermore, how blind can "Christians" be to think that "nature" has a mind of "her" own. "Nature" is God's creation, and "nature" can never deviate from "her" Creator's will. The Plagues against Pharaoh prove that all of "nature" is simply a tool to carry out God's blessings or curses.
Certainly, man caused Sandy, and the superstorms will continue as man goes deeper into his rebellion against God and his word.
Man caused "Climate Change"! How foolish can man be to think he is the new gods of the universe, able to subdue nature to his own will.
Moreover, how faithless of even Christians to think man can conspire against God to influence or control the weather.
However, the Lord did permit the magicians with their enchantments change their rods into serpents, 7:12, the water into blood, v. 22, the frogs, 8:7. It was not until the fourth judgment, lice, that the magicians could not duplicate.
In other words, when it fits within God's plan, he will give supernatural power to fallen man, because all power in heaven and earth is given unto Christ. Matthew 28:18.
Man does influence and control the weather, but that control is in accord to his attitude and actions toward the laws established by God.
Superstorms like Sandy are clearly man made. Man "makes" or causes them by his rebellion against God.
Added note: The "war on drugs" has failed. The "war on terrorism" has failed, and the people are demanding it be stopped. So the new world crises is "climate change", promoted with the idea of scaring the population to agree to more money for "green" energy, among other foolish and wasteful things.
As a result of Sandy, there will be a great push to do the impossible dreamthat is, control the climate, "Climate Change".
Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
Sandy confirms 2 Corinthians 6:2 (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)
