Disaster Diary  

The world is stunned: another catastrophic earthquake or tsunami has struck! People ask, "What's going on?" But most of the world -- Muslims and Christians -- regard large earthquakes as one of many end-time signs.  Jesus warned these days would be a time of God's punishment upon the earth and he described how 'roaring seas and strange tides' would cause people to be 'perplexed' ... 'terrified', even scared to death (Luke 21:22-25). Christ's prediction, however, is also a reminder that believers can trust in the Lord.  The people of Jesus' time knew well what these these things were, just as we do today.  But he said there would be an increase before His return.  Its obvious we are seeing this today.  Below is a list of the major disasters since 2000.  I think we've pretty much had continuous, ongoing disasters for the past few years now.  But the Psalmist inspires us to not be afraid:

"God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in times of trouble.  Therefore we won't be afraid, though the earth changes, though the mountains are shaken into the heart of the seas;  though its waters roar and are troubled, though the mountains tremble with their swelling." Psalm 46:1-3

In times past people knew that such disasters were the hand of God for punishment of regional and national sins so the people would repent. God is clearly speaking to us in these last days, but will we repent?  Revelation says, "But the people hardened their hearts and refused to repent".  Lamentations tells us this:

 Who can command things to happen without the Lord’s permission?
 Does not the Most High send both calamity and good?
 Then why should we, mere humans, complain when we are punished for our sins?

 Instead, let us test and examine our ways. Let us turn back to the Lord.
 Let us lift our hearts and hands to God in heaven and say,
 “We have sinned and rebelled, and you have not forgiven us. Lam 37-42

  Signs of the End

The link between going against Israel and “natural” disasters which inevitably follow

“And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people; And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.” Zechariah 12:3,9
