Some dubbed it ‘Frankenstorm’, striking the US north-eastern seaboard over Halloween – ‘trick or treat’, this tempest was well beyond a joke!
Some recalled Jesus’ prophetic description of the days preceding His promised return,
“As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man…people knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away…” (see Matt 24, espec vv 37-42; Luke 17)
Personally, I perceive a connection with and a lesson from George Washington’s battles against we Brits! Also, it was astonishing to see the whole storm superimposed by the BBC to show it would cover ALL western Europe, from northern Norway to the Straits of Gibraltar at Spain’s southern tip! (This report doesn’t show the same full image.)
So there’s many opinions about the category 1 hurricane Sandy. The following comments are not to be construed as demeaning in any way the suffering and tragedy it caused. My intention is to awaken your consideration of the possibility of a profound significance to this superstorm. We’ll cover a known reliable source’s case for Sandy’s Biblical significance, one based on solid, factual data. But beforehand, kindly bear with my short personal perspective.:
Throughout Saturday night southern England was lashed by torrential rains, even snow fell in the southwest. Rain had stopped by the time we arrived at church and a leader greeted me in the car park with, “At least it’s not as bad as America”. I mentioned the coincidence of Sandy happening on the 21st anniversary of the ‘perfect storm’, which had the distinction of an ‘unusual retrograde motion’ in going east to west to strike the northeastern USA.
We parted and, as I approached the entrance, another chap met me and straight away said that Sandy is connected with Israel. “I know”, replied I.
How extraordinary. Such conversations wouldn’t have arisen in other churches we’d attended or regularly visited! And here the previous week, an older lady and a young man independently spoke to me about John McTernan’s writings. I’ve never before met anyone familiar with his work! Could this indicate a growing awareness in Christians to the Biblical implications of political activities?
Readers may recall my occasional references to John’s blog (see tag) and perhaps followed the links. Last week I saw this image on his posting for 28th Oct. Similar ones appeared daily on World Watch and, clicking on one, I got the meteorologist at US’ Weather Channel talking over the chart. I noted his remark that this low category hurricane is peculiar in its “unique angle” – it will turn and head towards the coast! Unlike a normal hurricane that heads out into mid-Atlantic, Sandy turned westward to strike the nation’s capital and major cities!
That fact plus the fact it happened on the 21st anniversary of the ‘perfect storm’ should make any thinking person start to think about a possible connection – could this have been on purpose, or by ‘design’? Dullards will attribute it solely to weather or climate. John is of the opinion only reprobate minds refuse to consider and accept the fact that unremitting iniquity and unrighteousness warrants any rebuke from the Creator.
[Note: I started drafting this on Monday 4th during a busy week and the next day, ‘Guy Fawkes Day’, I espied John’s daily digest has a similar title and is on the same lines as this post. His thesis is along the lines of ‘As in the days of Lot’, and itemises various headlines that support his argument. His excellent teaching on The Ordinances of the Amorites is highly recommended – see link below.]
A Case for Sandy’s Biblical Significance
You may recall earlier articles of mine on the cyclical nature of events, starting with White House correspondent William Koenig’s in-depth investigation into the work of financial markets technical analyst Eric Hadik (see Points to Ponder).
In view of this knowledge, William accurately forecast terrorist troubles for this 11th Sept simply on the grounds of its being the 11th anniversary of the Twin Towers attack (see 11 year cycle proves itself again). Now, mathematically number 21 is 3 x 7, both of which, and multiples thereof, occur frequently and are of significance in the Bible. For example, 7 days of creation, Jesus’ return to life on 3rd day of death, the Trinity…etc.
Hence, William’s ideas about superstorm Sandy occurring on the 21st anniversary of the Perfect Storm warrant serious consideration. Also, to his above-stated track record we should add the sound credentials of carefully logged observations over many years.
William has thereby documented and published the close correlations between the most catastrophic weather and America’s treatment of Israel. Learn more about his claims from a recent interview with Drew Zahn by reading Could ‘Frankenstorm’ Be A Sign From God?
Thus, his main premis is:
“When we put pressure on Israel to divide their land, we have enormous, record-setting events, often within 24 hours,” Koenig told WND. “Hurricane Katrina, 9/11 – we have experienced over 90 record-setting, all-time events as we have acted against Israel. And the greater the pressure on Israel to ‘cooperate,’ the greater the catastrophe….
“From a biblical perspective, the land isn’t to be divided, parceled out or negotiated away … period,” Koenig said. “That’s the land God gave to Israel. People say they want peace,” he continued, “but it all comes down to this: No earthly leader has the right to partition Israel, because that was God’s gift to Abraham and his descendants. <emphasis RB>
How say you, my reader? Isn’t it time for American and world leaders to consider this information and take William’s, and John’s, claims seriously? After all, many have been given their OWN copy of William’s book Eye to Eye!
