Sandy, Preppers, and Signs of the Times


Problems from Hurricane Sandy are still occurring.  But not everyone suffered as much.  There are people who believe that disasters are coming to the United States.  And some of them try to be physically prepared.  Notice the following:

Maybe “Doomsday Preppers” have it right.
Hanging out with them in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia, after escaping suburban New Jersey (where we are without power five days after Sandy hit), it is difficult to not respect them.
After all, while my house is freezing, theirs have generators that run on gas. Where I live, it’s a four-hour line for gas and it’s now rationed. So listening to these folks who might once have seemed extreme, makes some sort of sense.
“Doomsday Preppers” is National Geographic’s No. 1 rated show, and it returns for a second season Tuesday, Nov. 13. The show focuses on people convinced that a cataclysmic event looms, and they are preparing for it by stockpiling water, food, medicine and weapons.

Now this is a little tricky:  it is true that natural and other disasters are coming to the United States, and it is true that everyone should try to have supplies to handle disasters.  On the other hand, stockpiling weapons is not going to properly prepare people for the long run.

When destruction comes to the United States from Europe (Daniel 11:39), most will either ultimately die or be made slaves.  Of course, overall, the “mainstream” considers the idea of the destruction of the USA absurd and a fringe idea.  However, just like some are noticing that the preppers were essentially right to be prepared for natural disasters, some will notice that the warning message that the USA will be taken over by the Europeans is true–but few will repent and truly be ready for it.  Instead they will notice too late, as will likely most in the COG (cf. Zephaniah 2:1-4; Revelation 12:14-17).

The following was part of LCG announcements at services yesterday, by its Dr. D. Winnail:

Signs of the Times: When Jesus was asked by His disciples about what signs would indicate His return was near, He warned that in addition to spreading wars and violence, the world would see increasing reports of major natural disasters: famines, pestilences, earthquakes in various places, and “fearful sights” that will shock the sensibilities of modern peoples and build to a crescendo at the end of the age (see Matthew 24:3-7; Luke 21:7-11). The recent “monster storm”—Hurricane Sandy—that tore through the Caribbean and slammed into the heavily populated Eastern Seaboard of the United States fits the description of events that Jesus predicted would precede His return. The “record” fourteen-foot flood surge that inundated lower Manhattan, the devastated shorelines of New York and New Jersey and the millions left without electric power across the Northeastern United States and Canada are sobering witness to the catastrophic damage caused by just one storm. God warned that He would bring such devastating events—disaster after disaster—on His chosen people if they turned away from Him (see Leviticus 26, Deuteronomy 28, and especially Ezekiel 7). We are witnessing prophecies coming alive, and we need to be alert to the signs of the times!

Jesus noted that people simply often did not understand the “signs of the times” (Mark 16:2-3).  Sandy is a warning, and part of the signs.

Sandy shows that humans have limited power and that the environment can dramatically change. In the future, there will be worse storms coming than superstorm Sandy, and much worse disasters coming to the USA and its Anglo-descended allies.

There are still Sandy-related flooding, transportation, and other problems because of the superstorm, and many in the Caribbean also are still dealing with its aftermath–Haiti is again suffering.  So, are many in the USA:

Sun Nov 4, 2012…

(Reuters) – Victims of superstorm Sandy on the U.S. East Coast struggled against the cold early on Sunday amid fuel shortages and power outages even as officials fretted about getting voters displaced by the storm to polling stations for Tuesday’s presidential election.

Overnight, near-freezing temperatures gripped the U.S. northeast. At least two more victims were found in New Jersey, one dead of hypothermia, as the overall death toll from one of worst storms in U.S. history climbed to at least 112.

My prayers go out to those who lost loved ones from the storm. Recovery of certain areas will take time.  But, all need to realize that bigger disasters are coming in the future.
