Typhoon Talas kills with floods in Japan, while Tropical Storm Lee causing flooding and other problems in USA:
msnbc.com 5 September 2011Rescuers in Japan dug through mud-caked debris and searched the banks of swollen rivers Monday for those missing in a powerful typhoon that left at least 25 people dead, the latest disaster for a country still recovering from a calamitous tsunami six months ago.Boston Globe 5 August 2011Tropical Storm Lee dumped more than a foot of rain in New Orleans and spun off tornadoes elsewhere yesterday as its center came ashore in a slow crawl north that raised fears of inland flash flooding in the Deep South and beyond. Areas of Alabama, Louisiana, and Mississippi near the coast reported scattered wind damage and flooding…
Reuters – Jim Forsyth – 4 September 2011Berglund said that in addition to feeding the fires, the winds are also drying out any humidity brought in by the tropical storm, prompting officials to prompting officials to issue a “critical fire danger” alert for the eastern two thirds of Texas. A red-flag wind advisory was also in effect for parts of Texas.
The death toll in Japan may be much higher as over 20,000 were still missing in that area when I last checked the news.
If any of these changes will affect weather patterns and/or food production in any significant way is not clear. But Texas, which has been hit with drought, now seems to have the situation worsened there because of winds from a tropical storm.
Jesus, of course, warned about a time with such troubling issues:
8 …and there will be…troubles. These are the beginnings of sorrows. (Mark 13:8)
We may be at this prophetic point as all the floods, droughts, earthquakes, and other problems that have happened in the past year or so could be considered as “troubles”–the beginning of sorrows may have began two years ago this month.
My 2009 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
Perhaps the record weather problems can serve as another wake-up call to the Japanese, Americans, and others that the world can change very quickly and that the time to repent is now:
30 Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, 31 because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead. (Acts 17:30-31)
There are troubles and repentance is needed.
