LCG: Deadly Tornadoes Continue

Oklahoma Tornado


In its latest TW News & Prophecy, LCG reported:

April witnessed tornados wreaking havoc in Alabama and the Carolinas. On Sunday night, May 22, a major tornado devastated Joplin, Missouri. The 200-mile-per-hour winds destroyed an estimated 2,000 buildings. More than 125 people lost their lives and more than 230 people are still reported missing (Wall Street Journal Online, May 26, 2011). The Joplin tornado was the deadliest tornado in the U.S. since 1947 (, May 25, 2011).Tuesday night, more tornados ripped through Kansas, Arkansas and Oklahoma (Associated Press, May 25, 2011). The storms also dropped devastating hail the size of baseballs and softballs in the region surrounding Dallas, Texas (, May 25, 2011). These storms appeared as the Mississippi River is flooding and Texas is experiencing major drought.

Bible prophecies have long warned that if the Israelite-descended nations turn away from God and refuse to obey His laws, that God will “break the pride” of their power, and make their “heavens like iron” and earth like bronze (Leviticus 26:19). The term “make heavens like iron,” when examined in the original Hebrew, indicates that the heavens will become like an “iron tool,” or a tool of harshness and oppression. In these recent storms, the heavens have surely become tools of harshness and oppression as they rain down destructive hail and powerfully destructive winds and water.

These ancient prophecies are certainly coming alive today! For more information on this sobering topic, please review our booklet, Who Controls the Weather?

I read that in Dr. R.C. Meredith’s home town of Joplin, MO over 130 have been confirmed as dedd from tornadoes.  According to Mr. Karl Beyersdorfer, the LCG pastor in the area, brethren in the affected congregations (Joplin, Harrison, and Springfield) are all well with no injuries that he’s aware of. He also said the devastation from this tornado was like nothing he had ever seen.

Weather problems and disasters were something that Jesus warned about.

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)

We may be at this prophetic point as all the earthquakes and other weather problems that have happened in the past year or so could be considered as “troubles”.

Weather related issues should serve as a wake-up call 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.
