Dozens dead in 3-headed hit of weird weather

GARLAND, Texas —At least 11 people died and dozens were injured in strong tornadoes that swept through the Dallas area and caused substantial damage this weekend, while 13 people died in flooding in the Midwest.It was the latest in a succession of powerful weather events the last few days across the country, from heavy snow in New Mexico, west Texas and the Oklahoma Panhandle to flooding in parts of the Plains and Midwest.

Mother Nature doesn’t appear to be backing off either. Early Monday, officials in Mountain Grove, Mo., about 60 miles east of Springfield, ordered an evacuation as a dam on Lily Lake breached following heavy rains. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/dozens-dead-in-3-headed-hit-of-weird-weather/

Severe Weather Batters Americas

Violent weekend weather battered large swaths of the southern and central United States, leaving at least 43 people dead.

Tornadoes killed at least 11 people in Texas as other areas of the country braced for potentially crippling winter storms and flash flooding.

One of several tornadoes that struck in and near the city of Dallas late Saturday carried winds of more than 320 kilometers an hour, leaving at least eight people dead. Three others died nearby, as a residential building in a northern suburb was destroyed and vehicles were blown from a highway overpass.

Authorities say scores of others were injured in the region, just days after tornadoes killed at least 19 people in the country’s southeast. …

As recovery efforts expanded Sunday, forecasters issued severe weather advisories for large parts of the southern and central United States, including blizzard warnings for parts of New Mexico, northern Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas.

New Mexico Governor Susana Martinez placed her entire jurisdiction under a state of emergency, as residents braced for as much as 60 centimeters of snow.

Additionally, flash flood warnings extended from Texas and New Mexico to the north central state of Indiana.  Flooding has killed at least 13 people in nearby states Missouri and Illinois.

California fires

In California, more than 600 firefighters battled a sprawling brush fire that has burned about 500 hectares in a state that has faced severe drought conditions for the past four years.  …

Floods wreak havoc in South America

In South America, emergency officials say as many as 150,000 people in the border areas of Paraguay, Uruguay, Brazil and Argentina have fled their homes ahead of severe flooding from torrential summer rains linked to the El Nino phenomenon. …

Paraguay’s President Horacio Cartes declared a state of emergency in the capital and several nearby regions.

Another 20,000 people in nearby northern Argentina also were forced to flee, while officials in Uruguay said 9,000 people near swollen rivers had suffered the same fate.

Civil defense authorities in the nearby southeastern Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sol said at least 7,000 residents had evacuated.  http://www.voanews.com/content/severe-weather-batters-americas/3121068.html

U.K. Seeks to Fix Flood Barrier as Thousands Flee Rising Waters

The U.K. is moving to fix a barrier on the Foss river in York as unprecedented rainfall has forced thousands of residents to evacuate because of rising flood waters.

British Prime Minister David Cameron said additional military resources are being deployed across the north of England, amid forecasts for more rain on Wednesday.

Several rivers burst their banks and flooded dozens of communities as well as parts of the city centers of York, Leeds and Manchester. Britain’s Environment Agency said there were 24 severe flood warnings, which indicate a “danger to life,” across England, according to a statement on Sunday.  http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-12-28/u-k-seeks-to-fix-flood-barrier-as-thousands-flee-rising-waters

While humans often seem to think otherwise, God is in charge and controls the weather. Notice the following:

The Bible makes plain who is in control of the weather! “Fire and hail, snow and clouds; stormy wind, fulfilling His word” (Ps . 148:8 , RAV).

God intervenes in weather to work out his purposes among nations…

Plagues of disastrous weather are a warning to humanity. Weather for the most part operates according to natural laws. Damaging weather patterns sometimes develop. God simply may not choose to intervene to stop them because of nations’ various sins and idolatry.

The Bible reveals God also directly intervenes to cause weather plagues to warn certain nations. “I have smitten you with blasting and mildew . .. yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the Lord” (Amos 4:9). He, in his great purpose, may also allow Satan-the god of this world (II Cor. 4:4)-to have a role in producing calamitous weather, for man’s ultimate learning (see Job, chapter 1). (Schroeder D. CHAOTIC WEATHER Return of the dust bowl? Plain Truth. 1984, pp. 19-20)

As the above shows, the Bible teaches that God uses weather to warn people and to get their attention, especially if they have left Him.  Jesus prophesied ‘troubles’ in these end times (Mark 13:8).

As regular 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 wrote that 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

Record heat and odd weather problems should serve as a wake-up call.

In the Americas, the phenomena known as El Niño is being blamed. But that begs the question as to what causes the El Niño phenomena.

Weather problems, including flooding and tornadoes, were prophesied to come as the result of sin:

13 Therefore thus says the Lord God: “I will cause a stormy wind to break forth in My fury; and there shall be a flooding rain in My anger, and great hailstones in fury to consume it. 14 So I will break down the wall you have plastered with untempered mortar, and bring it down to the ground, so that its foundation will be uncovered; it will fall, and you shall be consumed in the midst of it. Then you shall know that I am the Lord. (Ezekiel 13:13-14)

3 The Lord is slow to anger and great in power,
And will not at all acquit the wicked.

The Lord has His way
In the whirlwind and in the storm,
And the clouds are the dust of His feet. (Nahum 1:3)

The Bible is clear that God controls the weather and various calamities, but wants people to heed His prophets:

6… If there is calamity in a city, will not the Lord have done it?

7 Surely the Lord God does nothing, Unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets. (Amos 3:6-7)

The Bible tells of weather-related blessings for obedience and weather-related curses for disobedience. Weather is not as random as many people seem to want to believe.

The Bible shows:

30 God…commands all men everywhere to repent (Acts 17:30)

And weather-problems are one way that God uses to urge people to repent (cf. Haggai 2:17; Amos 4:7-12).

Weird, severe, and odd weather patterns are part of the warning messages that God gives. Are you paying attention to those messages?
