‘ “A Once In A Lifetime Event”: Michael … Strongest Hurricane To Hit US In 14 Years’ and then there is Indonesia


Hurricane Michael is raising concerns:

“A Once In A Lifetime Event”: Michael Will Be The Strongest Hurricane To Hit US In 14 Years

October 10, 2018

Update (9 am ET): Hurricane Michael continued to strengthen Wednesday morning, as the Category 4 storm’s wind speed increased to 145 mph. The storm is now poised to be the strongest to hit the US in 14 years, boasting a life threatening storm surge and the potential to cause $16 billion in damages. https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-10-10/extremely-dangerous-hurricane-michael-strengthens-cat-4-southeast-braces-record

“Potentially catastrophic” Hurricane Michael roars toward Florida Panhandle as Category 4 storm

October 10, 2018

Hurricane Michael was roaring toward the Florida Panhandle and getting even stronger before making landfall later Wednesday. As of 8 a.m. ET, the intense Category 4 hurricane was packing top sustained winds of 145 mph.

The National Hurricane Center described Michael as “potentially catastrophic.” Michael could be the worst storm ever to hit the Panhandle.

Nearly 30 million people in the Southeast are in Michael’s crosshairs. Forecasters said it will bring damaging winds and potentially life-threatening storm surge. https://www.cbsnews.com/live-news/hurricane-michael-path-evacuation-florida-storm-surge-weather-forecast-today-2018-live-updates/

9:42 a.m.: “Hurricane Michael is a hurricane of the worst kind”

Federal officials said they are in position and prepared to help the Southeast respond to Hurricane Michael, which they described as a particularly dangerous system.

“Unfortunately, Hurricane Michael is a hurricane of the worst kind,” FEMA Administrator William “Brock” Long said at a news briefing Wednesday morning.

Long was grim in discussing the potential impact from Michael, which intensified Tuesday and Wednesday into a Category 4 hurricane, a major storm with the potential to wreak havoc.

“Major hurricanes cause large losses of life and the most amount of destruction that hurricanes can bring forward,” he said.

Hurricane Michael has already begun lashing northwestern Florida, and Long warned about the “devastating storm surge” that would likely push through that region along with punishing winds.

Physical preparations do make sense (see Physical Preparation Scriptures for Christians), and people in areas subject to hurricanes should realize that. Hopefully, people in the areas likely to be affected have taken steps. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/post-nation/wp/2018/10/10/hurricane-michael-potentially-catastrophic-storm-begins-battering-florida/?utm_term=.7c7b667d021e

Perhaps I should mention that once, when we were in Western Florida and were told a hurricane was going to hit hard there, we were not particularly concerned as we were driving to Eastern Florida that night. However, as it happened, the hurricane had turned and devastated Eastern Florida instead. Hurricanes, thus, can change direction.

Expect more severe storms.

Notice also the following related to Indonesia:

October 10, 2018

Indonesia is facing a long and painful recovery from the devastating earthquake and tidal wave of two weeks ago, but scientists say that this latest calamity could simply be a warning of more deadly and destructive disasters ahead.

Palu, in Indonesia’s Central Sulawesi province, was ravaged on Sept. 28 by a 7.5-magnitude earthquake and tsunami that lashed the coastal city with waves up to 20 ft. tall. The twin disasters claimed nearly 2,000 lives, according to the U.N., with thousands more injured and missing. Survivors will feel the consequences for years: some 74,000 people lost their homes, and will live in refugee camp-like settlements for the foreseeable future. …

People, infrastructure, and wealth are being “concentrated into increasingly exposed urban centers in the most hazardous parts of the planet,” says Bill McGuire, Emeritus Professor of Earth Sciences at University College London. “Disaster preparedness is not keeping up.”

Earthquakes and tsunamis have proven particularly deadly, claiming nearly 750,000 lives over the past 20 years, more than other extreme weather events, according to a forthcoming report from the U.N. Office for Disaster Risk Reduction.

Much of that mortality came in 2004 after a 9.1-magnitude earthquake in the southern Indian Ocean generated a devastating tsunami that killed an estimated 230,000 people in 12 countries, the majority in Indonesia. http://time.com/5411313/indonesia-earthquake-tsunami-experts-climate-change/

Island areas like Indonesia will experience worse earthquake and tsunami damage in the future according to the Bible (see Islands and Bible Prophecy).

As far as hurricanes go, hurricanes seem to be getting stronger.

As regular readers of this Church of God news page are aware, hurricanes are consistent with the following scriptures about rain and wind:

26 “Behold, God is great, and we do not know Him; Nor can the number of His years be discovered. 27 For He draws up drops of water, Which distill as rain from the mist, 28 Which the clouds drop down And pour abundantly on man. 29 Indeed, can anyone understand the spreading of clouds, The thunder from His canopy? 30 Look, He scatters His light upon it, And covers the depths of the sea. 31 For by these He judges the peoples; He gives food in abundance. 32 He covers His hands with lightning, And commands it to strike. 33 His thunder declares it, The cattle also, concerning the rising storm. (Job 36:26-33)

25 For He commands and raises the stormy wind,Which lifts up the waves of the sea. 26 They mount up to the heavens, They go down again to the depths;Their soul melts because of trouble. 27 They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, And are at their wits’ end. 28 Then they cry out to the Lord in their trouble, And He brings them out of their distresses. 29 He calms the storm,So that its waves are still. 30 Then they are glad because they are quiet; So He guides them to their desired haven. 31 Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, And for His wonderful works to the children of men! 32 Let them exalt Him also in the assembly of the people, And praise Him in the company of the elders. 33 He turns rivers into a wilderness, And the watersprings into dry ground; 34 A fruitful land into barrenness, For the wickedness of those who dwell in it. 35 He turns a wilderness into pools of water, And dry land into watersprings. 36 There He makes the hungry dwell, That they may establish a city for a dwelling place, 37 And sow fields and plant vineyards, That they may yield a fruitful harvest. 38 He also blesses them, and they multiply greatly; And He does not let their cattle decrease. (Psalms 107:25-38)

17 He casts out His hail like morsels;
Who can stand before His cold?
18 He sends out His word and melts them;
He causes His wind to blow, and the waters flow. (Psalms 147:17-18)

3 He sends it forth under the whole heaven, His lightning to the ends of the earth. 4 After it a voice roars; He thunders with His majestic voice, And He does not restrain them when His voice is heard. 5 God thunders marvelously with His voice; He does great things which we cannot comprehend. 6 For He says to the snow, ‘Fall on the earth’; Likewise to the gentle rain and the heavy rain of His strength. 7 He seals the hand of every man, That all men may know His work. 8 The beasts go into dens, And remain in their lairs. 9 From the chamber of the south comes the whirlwind, And cold from the scattering winds of the north. 10 By the breath of God ice is given, And the broad waters are frozen. 11 Also with moisture He saturates the thick clouds; He scatters His bright clouds. 12 And they swirl about, being turned by His guidance, That they may do whatever He commands them On the face of the whole earth. 13 He causes it to come, Whether for correction, Or for His land, Or for mercy. (Job 37:3-13)

God controls the weather. Jesus’ disciples got to see this first hand:

23 Now when He got into a boat, His disciples followed Him. 24 And suddenly a great tempest arose on the sea, so that the boat was covered with the waves. But He was asleep. 25 Then His disciples came to Him and awoke Him, saying, “Lord, save us! We are perishing!”

26 But He said to them, “Why are you fearful, O you of little faith?” Then He arose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm. 27 So the men marveled, saying, “Who can this be, that even the winds and the sea obey Him?” (Matthew 8:23-27)

Presumably, the disciples learned something from that experience.

Wet weather is sometimes used by God for judgment and correction. Hurricanes are consistent with prophecy.

As longtime readers of this page are aware, I have repeatedly warned of weather problems coming. Back in 2009, in my book, 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect, I warned about something that would soon happen:

Odd weather patterns result in … natural disasters. Matthew 24:7 …

The world is actually in a berserk transition … It is the beginning of sorrows. Matthew 24:8 (Thiel B. 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect. Nazarene Books, 2009, p. 240)

Since that was published, we have had record smashing heat, stronger hurricanes, and odd weather problems. These weather issues should serve as a wake-up call.

As far as prophecy and multiple hurricanes go, consider the following which was posted here in 2011 and 2015:

Since the USA is already in more debt than any nation in the history of the world, it may be that weather problems (such as one or two incidents like Hurricane Katrina), earthquakes, and crop failures may combine in what could be called a “perfect storm” to push the USA over the edge for it to fall. (Thiel B. Weather Affected Fall of Rome, Will it Affect the USA’s Fall? COGwriter, January 16, 2011)

Weather events will negatively affect the USA and contribute to its downfall. …

The USA more and more trusts in perversity with its governmental acceptance of abortion, selling baby parts, pornography, massive debt, and the homosexual agenda. …

The USA did not repent after Hurricane Katrina. I do believe that something much worse than Hurricane Katrina will affect the USA. (Thiel B. Hurricane Katrina ten years later: Will something worse happen to the USA? COGwriter.com, August 28, 2015)

Expect more severe storms. (Thiel B. ‘Monster Hurricane Florence aims to drench Carolinas’. COGwriter, September 12, 2018)

Some may wish to watch our video:

Hurricanes and Prophecy Hurricane Harvey dropped the greatest amount of rainfall in any USA storm. Hurricane Irma was the strongest hurricane ever in the Atlantic. Hurricane Irma wiped out most of the island of Barbuda, caused a million to lose power in Puerto Rico, devastated St. Martin’s, hit Cuba, and hit Florida. A news headline stated ” ‘Nature’s gone crazy’: Winds, fire, floods and quakes plague North America.” Is there any tie to prophecy? Are heavy winds and rains discussed in the Bible? Any ties to homosexuality and other forms of immorality? What about Donald Trump and Jennifer Lawrence? Does God control the weather? What does God want people to do? Dr. Thiel addresses these issues and more. This is a video.

Hurricane Michael could be consistent with the following that Jesus foretold:

8 And there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be famines and troubles. These are the beginnings of sorrows. (Mark 13:8)

Major hurricanes are troubling. We are in the beginning of sorrows.

Weather events should serve as a wake-up call to all.
