LCG: Record deadly tornadoes


In the latest TW News & Prophecy, LCG reported:

In the central United States, more than 150 tornadoes touched down from February 28 through March 3. These storms killed 49 people and literally wiped several towns “off the map.” Most of the tornadoes occurred in the five states of Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois and Alabama. “The U.S. has experienced 272 tornadoes this year through March 4, more than twice the seven-year average for the period….” Damage estimates range from U.S. $1-2 billion so far (, March 6, 2012). 2011 was the U.S.’s deadliest year in more than 100 years, with more than 550 deaths, and if the first part of 2012 is any indicator, this could be another very deadly year (, March 5, 2012).

Bible prophecies make it clear that severe weather will characterize end-time events (Luke 21:11; Leviticus 26:14-15, 19-21). However, there is a better time coming when the Messiah will usher in an era of unparalleled peace–a time when sorrow, crying, pain and death will begin to disappear (Revelation 21:4). In the meantime, students of the Bible should not be surprised to witness increasing weather disasters as yet another sign of the end of the age.

In yesterday’s announcements at church services, LCG reported:

Brethren Protected During Storms
Southern Indiana and Kentucky experienced violent storms and destructive tornados on Friday, March 2. The damage and loss is still being assessed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Many small communities were completely destroyed, as you may have seen in news coverage.
It was very evident that God protected the homes and lives of the members of His Church. Numerous powerful tornados left paths of devastation on both sides of many of the homes and property of our brethren across the area. Some members in the Louisville and Berea, Kentucky, congregations did, however, have relatives who were seriously injured or whose homes were leveled or who suffered property damage. In the extended family of one member there were three fatalities.
As we witness the loss and suffering of so many others, we are very thankful for God’s protection and His mercy.—Lambert Greer

It is great that many were protected.

Weather related issues, however, 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.
