I’m sure all of us were on a faster-paced schedule over the holidays. Sometimes you aren’t sure how soon you will get to slow that down after they have passed. God had plans of allowing nature to do that for us this year. On January 5th most of the midwest received an intense ice storm, one that was severe enough to knock us out of power for over 4 days and some people are even without it yet today. Most of the trees started to straighten out after a good week of being bent over and some just snapping off and taking down the power lines.We thought we were steadily getting back to normal, but then came strange flooding on January 11th. I’m not sure about you, but from what I’ve seen, the weather these past two years has been fairly strange? It might seem a little strange, but could we possibly really be close to Christ’s return? The Bible has this to say about the weather being a sign that that could be true:
Luke 21:25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; 21:26 Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
Record numbers in natural disasters, Tsunamis in Asia, mud-slides in California…….who knows what lies ahead, but I wouldn’t mind not being if the weather gets too out of control?
