More Than Coincidence?











Last Tuesday started out liike any other day. I was on the treadmill at the gym when a blurb ran across the screen mentioning an earthquake in Colorado. Weird I thought. They don't typically have earthquakes. Later on I was at my churches Women's Bible study and we read started reading Isaiah 24. In it the author (Isaiah)  is talking about a comeing destruction that no one can escape. Then that afternoon there was an earthquake in Virginia. Another rareity. In 2011 so far we have 26 recorded earthquakes world wide. In addition we have had hurricanes, tsunamis, floods, tornados, droughts and just about every other natural disaster immaginable. Do you think this is all mere concidence? I think not.  The purpose of Jesus telling us of the increase in natural dissasters happening just prior to His return was to prepare us so that we would not be caught off guard.
The Lord is not willing that any person should perish, but that all men would have an opportunity to obtain salvation and eternal life. For this reason, the prediction of and the fulfillment of natural disasters has the purpose of bringing man into an awareness of the God . That He has power over the natural elements of the Universe and often uses them to speak to man of His existence and ability to control the events of human existence.
 My we all be prepared.

Amen---He desires no one perish and His actions are always for redemptive purposes!
