Are Disasters God’s Wake-up Call?

22 comments

5450 miles away to our West is grief stricken Japan, currently dealing with a terrible earthquake, a ravishing tsunami and a nuclear melt down. LINK Many there are cold, homeless and hungry. All are heartbroken. as are we.

Much of the world is currently revolting against their rulers.

Globally, we are on an economic precipice. LINK Many are in despair. For many, these are terrible times.

So, the Rocktagon asks this question: Are disasters God’s wake up call?

Should folks be angry with God? If He is God couldn’t He stop this? Wouldn’t a good God stop this?

Or is God allowing Satan a free hand and the fruits of our sin to take its course. Is He reminding us that we ignore Him at our peril?

Jesus Christ once was asked by His disciples what signs would signify the close of the age. (Matthew 24:3-8) He answered: “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are but the beginning of the birth pains”. He then added that before the end would come the Gospel of God’s Kingdom would be preached in the whole world. (Matthew 24:9-14)

This website is seen globally. Earthquakes abound. LINK Our rulers have engineered perpetual war. LINK Are these the times referred to by Christ?

Even if you don’t think so it may not hurt to be more informed and more prepared. Be sure to check out our Sign of the Times news entries for today, 3/17/11. More earthquakes are predicted. ‘Reactor #3’ is filled with plutonium (MOX fuel). It is MUCH worse than uranium!

First, please hover over these verses: Psalm 107:25, Isaiah 45:7, Jeremiah 31:35, Isaiah 55:11, Matthew 8:24-26.

It quickly becomes obvious that God’s Word says that He is in control. He calls on the entire world to repent. To turn from our wicked ways and seek peace in love and in truth.

Jeremiah 18:6-12 says God brings disaster on nations. But if they turn from their evil God will relent.

I fear for the USA. I pray to God that we can collectively expose evil (Eph. 5:11) and turn toward God.

Though we are all called to do our part, our hope must not be in the response of the rest of mankind. Our hope must be in the One who claimed to have conquered death (Romans 6:7-9) and overcome this world (John 16:33) (1 John 5:1-5); Jesus the Christ, HaMashiach Jeshua (Jesus the Messiah), the King of Kings and Lord of Lords!

His Kingdom is coming. It is what He taught us to pray for. Matthew 6:9-10

And His heavenly Kingdom for us will be COOL! Philippians 3:20, 1 Corinthians 2:9

His new heaven and new earth for His bride will be nice too! Isaiah 65:17-25

Let us do as the Lord taught: love God and love others. This means we are to help our neighbor. Right now, most of us can use a lot of help.

Feel free to comment or disagree. This is, after all, the Rocktagon!

    Jesus the greatest God of all times…..
    Sacrifice is the extreme end of love.. No God in any religion has sacrificed for humans…
    Only because of his greatest sacrifice the love still exists in humans…
    Still people love each other only because of greatest God Jesus christ…..
    Love you Jesus… Love you forever……

    True art thou.

  21. Debi Jean Peck says:

    GOD is calling to all of us. But, how many of us are responding? Will it take a burning bush experience to wake us up? Last year an eighteen-wheeled tanker filled with thousands of gallons of gasoline tipped over in Everett, MA. The tanker split open spilling most of its load. A spark from the rollover ignited the fuel and two double-decker homes and twenty-one cars parked on the street were completely engulfed and destroyed by the flames. Thank GOD that not even one person was even hurt.
    Will this experience cause some in Everett to bend their knees and say, “JESUS, what are YOU telling us?” Especially the 23 people who narrowly excaped with their lives as flames surrounded them as they slept; but GOD took them by the hand and led them to safety. GOD is calling to us whenever HE lets these disasters happen. HE calls to us from different spots around the world daily.
    GOD shows us that any of us could be thrust into eternity after our next blink. We’re only visitors here on earth. I can’t emphasize that enough! GOD created us to do something for HIM; your purpose might be over tomorrow. Are you living your life in preparation to meet JESUS, or are you living just to please yourself?
