The Millennium Storm
the winds of Hurricane Katrina lashed cities and towns in the
Gulf Coast of the United States to an unprecedented degree, in the
aftermath of the cataclysm, seemingly every news outlet in America
was focused on the story. Yet those who tell us what is happening in
this world haven't uttered a word concerning the much larger epic
that is about to explode on a planetary scale.
trying to say is, that which was being called a superstorm,
isn't even a brisk wind compared to what is about to occur.
prophets tell us the LORD is scheduled to call out to
unrepentant man for only so long, and then He states "My spirit will
not always strive with man" (Genesis 6:3). Those same
Hebrew prophets, characterizing the forthcoming events in the
clearest terms possible, told us that when God's wrath
finally does begin, even "the stars of heaven shall fall" (Mark
scriptural language is picturesque as the LORD's Spirit seeks to
warn us that massive geologic (read weather) changes will be
paramount in these times. The prophet Isaiah ominously warned
shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a
cottage; and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and
it shall fall, and not rise again" (Isaiah 24:20).
so-called "scholars" tell us such language is but a metaphor,
or just symbolic communication, we now know that in the stellar
planetary order of our universe, such things do physically occur.
We know, for instance, that planets are moved from their orbits, and
the result is plunging temperatures, or scalding heat. We know that
cosmic bodies occasionally collide, and we know that geologic
convulsions on an unimaginable scale are a physical
Amos seems to be describing volcanism when he writes
Lord God of hosts is he that toucheth the land, and it shall melt,
and all that dwell therein shall mourn: and it shall rise up wholly
like a flood; and shall be drowned, as by the flood of Egypt" (Amos
describes an extreme heat, probably through a nova of
mountains quake at him, and the hills melt, and the earth is
burned at his presence..." (Nahum 1:5).
Christian Apostle Peter tells us that in the very end of days,
even the atmosphere of the planet will be ripped away --
something science tells us would extinguish just about all life on
"The day of
the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens
shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt
with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein
shall be burned up" (II Peter 3:10).
things occur, and everything in the physical universe is stripped
down to its inner spiritual core, we should urgently ponder what
will become of us. The Bible categorically tells us those that are
in Jesus Christ will be saved, and reconstituted into
immortal bodies where we will live in His presence forever, in
abundant joy, and on a higher plane of existence.
those that have not the life of Jesus Christ within
them when the matter is settled once and for all, will be bound, and
"cast....into outer darkness [where] there shall be weeping and
gnashing of teeth" (Matthew 22:13). No-one will be scoffing at that
time, for all our fates will be sealed.
truth is, the present distress has only scratched the surface of the
turmoil to come, for the Millennium Storm is about begin.
