Three eleven. That’s what we – in East Asia – call the Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami of March 11th, 2011. The rest of you think of it as the time when the Fukushima nuclear reactors melted down and blew up.
However, it’s more than a disaster. It’s also an allegory of the future – an allegory that we need to pay attention to. Those who do not internalize this warning about the future, will be lucky to survive when that future arrives.
Why do I say this?
Most who died in the 3/11 Tsunami, did so because they ignored the warning – or didn’t hear it.
I saw evidence of three great catastrophes this week, and they should start alarm bells ringing in all of our minds:
Hezbollah and Iran Challenging Israel
Hard Hearts in Our Churches
The last one is the most important, but you’ll understand the first one better. And for the second… you won’t understand the significance, unless you’ve read Ezekiel’s Fire. And, you need to read Ezekiel’s Fire.
I’m going to give an overview of the importance of those three catastrophes. And, I hope that you’ll pay attention to them. They won’t be fixed, but they can be avoided.
I am so bad at prognostication, that I won’t really try to tell you what WILL happen. The best that I can do is describe the threats. These threats have been looming larger and larger with each passing year. And, some of them are new.
Please treat these seriously.
My hope is that we will have another year where we successfully dodge the bullets being fired at us. But, there is a limit to how often we can do that.
After last week’s article, Hurricane Irma blundered through Florida and Georgia. Then, Typhoon Talim set its sights on my apartment building. However, Talim veered off to the North and didn’t do much more than rain on us, here in Taipei. But, Irma left a gigantic swath of destruction in her wake.
Half of Florida might be without power for weeks. People have been displaced. Lives and jobs disrupted and even ruined. And the loss of lives…
That was a terrible hurricane, and Florida hasn’t had one of those in a long time. But, I have an interesting observation, from all the typhoons that my wife and I have been through…
…did you notice how quiet and normal everything was, the day before?
We all have been watching the antics of the candidates and the press. The corruption that they have revealed is so far beyond revolting, that I can barely stand it. If this doesn’t reveal the true nature of our political system – and our society – nothing will.
But, I want to be done with it. It wears on me, and I’m betting that it wears on you.
However, there’s something worse than this election. And, you do NOT want that to happen.
However, I’m not interested in saving a worthless life, so if that’s you… you might want to read a different website. And, there’s only one definition for worth, and it’s found in only one place – Christ.
If you are dedicated with all of your heart and strength to serve God, in any way that He calls you to serve… read on. If you are only interested in saving your worthless life, go home.
There is only one place where life has meaning and worth: Jesus Christ. And, you cannot be in Christ without a complete and thorough dedication to Him.
We live in the Last Days. If you have any doubt, read Matthew 24, Luke 21 and Mark 13. And, Luke 21:24 shows us when these Last Days began. A part of these Last Days is the coming of a vast army, down upon the Middle East – specifically Israel.
That army will be destroyed, and much of our civilization with it. I call it Ezekiel’s Fire. You will call it terrifying. And, we see this prophecy beginning to be fulfilled.
We refer to it as The Coming of Gog and Magog, and God speaks of hooks that He will put in the jaws of Gog, to bring the great prince down to Israel.
I believe that the bombing of Flight 7K9268 was one of those hooks.
