We delight in no one's destruction. But make no mistake about it, God's judgements are righteous to those on the receiving end.

Revelation 19
[1] And after these things I heard a great voice of much people in heaven, saying, Alleluia; Salvation, and glory, and honour, and power, unto the Lord our God:
[2] For true and righteous are his judgments: for he hath judged the great [harlot], which did corrupt the earth with her fornication, and hath avenged the blood of his servants at her hand.
[3] And again they said, Alleluia. And her smoke rose up for ever and ever.
[4] And the four and twenty elders and the four beasts fell down and worshipped God that sat on the throne, saying, Amen; Alleluia.
[5] And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great.
[6] And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.

You relish the suffering of others. You need others to suffer so you feel better about your choice of God.

sgraham, What do you believe people along those beaches did that brought on their towns being wiped out similar to Sodom and G.?

What could be such a sin? Shopping at Publix? Drinking beer on the weekends? Are murderers and theives hiding out in Mex City?
I'm just not gettin it....what are they doing that deserves this exactly...why would anyone worship a God like this?
Multiple questions, sorry.

I believe in signs, sure, but then the El Nino and temps and currents and sunspots aren't necessarily blessings or punishments from on High.
Things may happen for reasons...but they don't mean "punishments", from a loving Creator/Father...that Jesus' whole life personified....my gosh, he even put ears back on his enemies!
He showed us God's loving nature.

Some members here relish this as Gods doing. Some members want to deny and hide, desperate for coincidence. They are not being caretakers of the Earth. They want destruction, they need destruction.
I think it feeds their need for violence.
O, I know there are too many people on this Earth, and I can't get into politics. There is a million types of ants and bugs, but for each type of ant, there is a specific fungus that naturaly controls the population of every species and if just one type of ant found a way to beat that fungus, we could not stop them from taking over the Earth, they are naturaly kept in check.

Somehow I believe mother Earth might just have a plan to fix mankind..........Mother nature has a way to overcome, we saw that with the end of T-rex, maybe the universe knows what needs to be done, and all it would need is a big rock. As time is figured, mankind is so small and little, the span of our existance will be very short, like somebody snapping they fingers to show our whole existance, we are not here for long.

Temperatures at the surface of the tropical Atlantic Ocean have become remarkably colder than normal.

Currently, sea surface temperatures averaged over the tropical Atlantic (shown in the black box in the image below) are the coldest that they have been in the middle of June since at least the early 1980s.

Honestly Finn. You want to argue the science. I have little patience for it.



Let us get this back on track. I am sincerely interested in your answers.



Is the changing climate something you expect from God?



Is the changing climate, the flooding, the rain, all part of Gods plan for the end of the world?


If so, do you have any obligation to help the Earth recover?

What is our obligation to whole communities devastated by Michael?

Do we collectively help them, or do we simply say it was God's will and leave them to their own devices?

Your patience is not my concern. I pointed out a fact, and I do not care whether or not you want to believe it.

The answer to all our problems have already been promised, a fix is already in, and this promised salvation comes as the flood of Noah. The coming of the Lord is as the rains, two comings in two different seasons. These rains are promised on the conclusion day of Passover(Pentecost) and on the conclusion day of Tabernacles(Shemini Atzeret).

When Jesus is telling us about the repeat of Noah's flood that is swiftly coming, he is naturally speaking of the promised flood on the conclusion day of Tabernacles. Where we saw rain fall softly on Pentecost, there is nothing soft about the flood of Tabernacles, it is literally a promised flood whereas the Pentecost is called a dew, and only the dew is prayed for because of the flood every fall.

This promised flood of the repeat of Noah will fix mankind, only, The flood will fall and cover every mountain and this flood is a circumcision, the flesh will be circumcised completely to whomever it falls upon.

Everyone is looking for death and destruction because they read Revelation as some future event when it was in fact written for every generation. Jesus speaking of an assumed end of the world in Matthew 24 has nothing to do with the end of the world but people take those scriptures as if Jesus is speaking of gloom, death and destruction when it is really leading the reader to die within himself, to become born again.

We look at what happens in this flood in Zechariah 14 and all it does is show so much hope for mankind because the flood had come and evolved humans into spiritual beings, but the great hope is what is being said to the rest of the world who did not recieve the rain.........If Egypt and Assyria will not come up to the feast of Tabernacles, they shall have no rain.....

THE SHEER HOPE that this scripture brings is astonishing because the rain being spoken of is spirit, and not rain.

The rain had come and changed everyone in Judah and the world is looking on, they will want this rain, and it is astonishingly hopefull because of the fact that is shows the world of Gentiles being offered this rain that had evolved Judah in to new beings.........It is a repeat of Noah's flood but where we saw global death in Noah's day, we see global life in the coming promised flood, in my opinion.

At mount Sinai 3000 people died at Pentecost, but on the next Pentecost, 3000 people were saved, and I have every reason to believe that the flood of Shemini Atzeret will bring life instead of death just as the rain of Pentecost had.

I see the flood coming, and this time everyone will want the rain.

The evolution of mankind is what I wait on, and then mankind will no longer destroy the Earth.

I believe [know] the Bible to be God's Word. I have my opinion as to why this hurricane struck with such vengeance, but I am not at liberty to fully discuss it on this forum, per forum rules.
