A superstorm, which some have dubbed a “Frankenstorm,” is expected to affect the Eastern part of North America, and rain has already began in some areas:
By ALLEN G. BREED and WAYNE PARRY Associated PressSHIP BOTTOM, N.J. October 28, 2012 (AP)
Tens of millions of people in the eastern third of the U.S. in the path of the unprecedented freak storm had hours Sunday to prepare for the first raindrops that were expected later in the day, to be followed over the next few days by sheets of rain, high winds and even heavy snow.
The warning from officials to anyone who might be affected path was simple: Be prepared and get out of the way.
Hurricane Sandy was headed north from the Caribbean, where it left nearly five dozen dead, to meet a winter storm and a cold front, plus high tides from a full moon, and experts said the rare hybrid storm that results will cause havoc over 800 miles from the East Coast to the Great Lakes. http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/us-superstorm-threat-launches-mass-evacuations-17581439#.UI0xZIY3mFg

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — As Americans brace for Hurricane Sandy, the Caribbean is still suffering.Officials say storm-related death toll has risen to 65 as of early Sunday. Haitian authorities have reported 51 of those deaths…Deaths also have been reported in Cuba, Jamaica, Puerto Rico and the Bahamas. http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/the_americas/hurricane-sandys-death-toll-rises-to-65-as-flooding-continues-in-haiti/2012/10/28/4cb94900-2101-11e2-92f8-7f9c4daf276a_story.html

National Weather Service forecasters in Hurricane Sandy’s path are issuing increasingly dire warnings of the high winds, power outages, widespread flooding, torrential rains and even snow that are in store for much of the mid-Atlantic and Northeast starting Monday.
The agency office covering New York City and northern New Jersey warned of the potential for 40- to 55-mph sustained winds…
Snow and up to 45 mph gusts are possible in southern Ohio on Monday and Tuesday.
NOAA environmental prediction chief Louis Uccellini warned: “We’re looking at impact of greater than 50 to 60 million people.” As much as a third of the country could be affected…
Meanwhile, Sandy has continued to skew the endgame of the presidential race.http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1012/82972.html#ixzz2AbHEFYUE
Got an email link to a news item which gave current carnal reasons why the storm could be so strong:
AP - Oct 27, 2012
Forecasters are warning that Sandy could be a storm of epic proportions. Here are five reasons why.
1. A NORTHBOUND HURRICANE…
2. EARLY WINTER STORM
Sandy is expected to merge with a wintry system from the west…
3. ARCTIC AIR FROM THE NORTH
Frigid air coming south from Canada also is expected to collide with Sandy and the wintry storm from the west…
4. HIGH TIDES COULD WORSEN FLOODING
Further complicating matters is the possibility for dangerous storm surges: A full moon means the tides will be higher than usual, which will make it easier for the storm’s powerful winds to push water into low-lying areas…
5. COMBO OF SNOW, WIND INCREASES RISK FOR WIDESPREAD POWER OUTAGES http://www.ksdk.com/news/article/344859/28/5-reasons-why-Sandy-is-expected-to-be-a-superstorm-
As I mentioned before about this storm, people should prepare as well as pray for protection. People can also pray for the protection of others and the comfort for those who have lost loved ones and/or personal property.
If you are in a likely area to be affected, how can you carnally prepare?
Some simple steps such as removing items from outside the house that could blow around and either get lost or hurt someone should be removed. People should check to see if they have flashlights and batteries. At least several days of food and water should be stored. Repairing roofs and strengthening weak structures would likely be wise. Sandbags, etc. would seem appropriate in areas that are prone to flooding.
Storm directions often change and many who are not expecting to be affected may well be affected.
Yet, of course, in 2012, weather problems, including flooding, drought, and heat have affected various parts of the world (see, for example, Earthquakes, South African Snow, Heat Record, Drought, and Food Prices, Flooding in North Korea, Philippines, Taiwan, and China, TW: Drought USA and Flooding UK; Russia Having Both, Quarter Million Affected by Flooding in Japan, Severely Cold Weather in South Africa and Australia, Drought in Mid-USA Affecting Grain, 2012 Drought Declared USA’s Largest Ever Natural Disaster, Drought Affecting India and Its Food Supply; Europe too, Drought Reducing Wheat Yields in US, Australia, Russia, and Ukraine, and Weather Extremes in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the UK).
Back in 2009, my book, 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect mentioned the following was about to happen:
Odd weather patterns result in food shortages and natural disasters. Matthew 24:7
The world is actually in a berserk transition, as the real age of peace is not yet here. It may be a period of chaos. It is the beginning of sorrows Matthew 24:8
In 2011, the USA had a tremendous amount of odd weather as well (see NRDC: All US States Had Extreme Weather; Confirms 2012 Book Prediction).
Spiritually speaking, droughts and odd weather problems should serve as a wake-up call. Weather-related troubles with their related social and food issues, of course, have been biblically expected:
7…And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. (Matthew 24:7-8).
5 When He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come and see.” So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. 6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine.” (Revelation 6:5-6)
8 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be famines and troubles. These are the beginnings of sorrows. (Mark 13:8)
Those who think that the USA will always have plenty and can cope with basically all storm will be shocked when that changes. Droughts, floods, hurricanes, other weather issues, pestilences, and a reliance on more and more engineered and hybridized foods are putting the USA, as well as its other Anglo-descended allies, at severe risk of problems of many types including hunger and ultimately successful invasion.
Those who believe the Bible realize that tough times are expected.
One of the lessons from storms and weather changes should be to tell all that things can and do change. And when the Great Tribulation hits, the change will be more than most people (especially North Americans) thought possible in their lifetimes.
Some articles of possibly related interest may include:
Can the Great Tribulation Begin in 2012, 2013, or 2014? Can the Great Tribulation begin today? What happens before in the “beginning of sorrows”? What happens in the Great Tribulation and the Day of the Lord? When is the earliest that the Great Tribulation can begin? What is the Day of the Lord?
Physical Preparation Scriptures for Christians. We all know the Bible prophecies famines. Should we do something?
Anglo – America in Prophecy & the Lost Tribes of Israel Are the Americans, Canadians, English, Scottish, Welsh, Australians, Anglo (non-Dutch) Southern Africans, and New Zealanders descendants of Joseph? Where are the lost ten-tribes of Israel? Who are the lost tribes of Israel? What will happen to Jerusalem and the Jews in Israel? Will God punish the U.S.A., Canada, United Kingdom, and other Anglo nations? Why might God allow them to be punished first?
Will the Anglo-Nations be Divided and Have People Taken as Slaves? Will the lands of the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand be divided? What about Jerusalem? What does Bible prophecy teach? Are there non-biblical prophecies that support this idea? Who will divide those lands? Who will end up with the lands and the people?
End of Mayan Calendar 2012–Might 2012 Mean Something? Are there Mayan calendar predictions for change in 2012? Changes were centuries ago predicted by the Hopi Native Americans. Do Mayan/Hindu/Hopi/Buddhist/New Age/Nostradamus prophecies have any value here? Why might Satan have inspired this date? Does the Dresden codex show destruction of the earth by flood? Can the great tribulation start before 2012? How might Barack Obama and Julia Gillard be involved in 2012? Have predictions written by Bob Thiel related to Barack Obama and Julia Gillard began to come to pass?
