It should be clear to you then that God has absolute control
over the weather, and other forces of nature. In light of all
of the previous Scriptural evidence, it is foolhardy for any
Bible-believing Christian to reject the idea that God can use
a ferocious tropical storm such as Hurricane Katrina, as His
instrument of judgment against rebellious and sinful people.
In my mind, to even suggest that Hurricane Katrina did not
happen by God's Will, is indirectly stating that God is not
in complete control of His creation. Personally, I cannot
accept that. What about you?

Furthermore, the only reason which I can think of why any of
us wouldn't be willing to admit this truth as Christians, is
because we are being too politically-correct. In other words,
we won't speak the truth because it embarrasses us to do so,
and we simply don't wish to be ridiculed, or viewed as crazy
Christian fanatics by the unbelieving world. Furthermore, we
realize that saying such harsh things will obviously offend
certain people, and we don't wish to be persecuted for our
faith. So, we prefer to go along with the crowd, and simply
comment on what a great tragedy Hurricane Katrina was. Not
only that, but we will apply the very same attitude to any
other disaster which may occur, whether it is a flood, fire,
earthquake, or whatever.

While secular weathermen and the mass media will inform us
that where a hurricane ultimately makes landfall is strictly
determined by a variety of meteorological factors, such as
atmospheric and oceanic conditions, we who have studied God's
Word should know and understand that this is simply not the
case. God retains absolute control of His creation; and that
including the forces of nature. Based upon the Scriptures, we
should be convinced that where these storms strike isn't just
a matter of science, but more importantly, it is a matter of
God's Divine Will. He is the Guiding Force behind so-called
natural disasters such as hurricanes and typhoons. They are
in reality Acts of God. The Wikipedia website defines an Act
of God as "a legal term for events outside of human control,
such as sudden floods or other natural disasters, for which
no one can be held responsible."

Oddly enough, as we've already seen, while in a legal sense
lawyers and insurance people may refer to such disasters as
Acts of God, in reality, few people are actually willing to
admit that such events truly were Acts of God, performed by
the Hand of God, or at least permitted by God; because to do
so implies a manifestation of His anger, as well as sin in
the lives of those who are being chastised.

As we have seen through a careful study of the Scriptures,
God will either direct these forces Himself, or else He will
purposely allow Satan and his demons to manipulate them, in
order to mete out God's judgments upon the wicked. From the
Great Flood which occurred in the days of Noah, to the fiery
destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, to the plagues in Egypt
during the time of Moses and Aaron, to the droughts, famines
and pestilences that are described for us throughout the Old
Testament, to the great earthquakes of the Biblical past and
those yet to come, to the worldwide plagues of the Endtime,
to the awesome signs in the heavens which will announce the
Return of Jesus Christ, all of these were, or will be, Acts
of the Almighty God, and not merely the natural forces of
the heavens and Earth working by their own will and power,
as some people erroneously assume. Natural disasters aren't
so natural after all.

As we draw closer to the end of man's current corrupt rule
upon the Earth, we will witness even more powerful signs as
God begins to pour out His Wrath upon the rebellious people
of this planet. While men of science, governments and the
mass media will attempt to explain these things as natural
phenomenon and natural disasters, we who trust in God and His
Word must recognize these events for what they truly are. We
must be careful that we don't allow ourselves to fall under
their deceptive spell. Rather than speak politically-correct
phrases which will only make people feel better and diminish
their fear, as faithful servants of the Lord, we must all be
willing to boldly tell them the truth, in the hope that some
of them will repent of their sins, and acknowledge the Lord
in their lives. For if we refuse to do these things, because
we are afraid of being ridiculed and persecuted, then God
will surely hold us accountable. As the Lord once said to the
ancient Prophet Ezekiel:

"Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of
Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them
warning from me. When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt
surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to
warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the
same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood
will I require at thine hand. Yet if thou warn the wicked,
and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked
way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered
thy soul."
Ezekiel 3:17-19, KJV

So it is clear that we must each be willing to deliver our
soul to an increasingly ungodly, incredulous world, and be a
powerful beacon of God's truth in the troublesome, dark days
which lie ahead. We must not cower in fear, or shirk away
from our responsibilities to the Lord. As Jesus and other
New Testament writers warned us, we must not be ashamed of
our faith. Consider these verses:

"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your
good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."
Matthew 5:16, KJV

"Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words
in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall
the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of
his Father with the holy angels."
Mark 8:38, KJV

"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the
power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to
the Jew first, and also to the Greek."
Romans 1:16, KJV

"For the which cause I also suffer these things:
nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have
believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that
which I have committed unto him against that day."
2 Timothy 1:12, KJV

Aside from the fact that we must boldly preach the Gospel --
including God's warnings of impending judgment, as well as
the message of repentance -- simply because it's our duty to
do so as God's messengers and ambassadors, there is another
reason why we must do it; and that is this: No one else is
going to do it. Let's face it; we are never going to see the
national leader of any country hold a press conference, and
announce that the calamities that are befalling the country
are the result of God's judgments against a rebellious and
sinful nation. It's just never going to happen, and I would
be greatly surprised if it does. Furthermore, we are never
going to see the news anchor of any national news network
tell his audience that it is time to repent, because God is
very angry with the nation. Again, it's just never going to
happen.

Modern, hard-hearted, politically-correct national leaders
are so unlike some of the God-fearing kings of ancient Israel
who fully understood when God was dealing with their nation.
And if they didn't know, then God's Prophet of the day would
tell them so, and some of the more upright kings would call
for a national repentance. Consider the following Scriptural
example of King Josiah who removed all of the false priests
from office, and destroyed all of the brothels of the male
temple prostitutes, as well as the pagan temples, the forest
worship places, and all of the idols that had been dedicated
to the star gods -- and other false gods --which were found
throughout Judah. In addition, Josiah made the people swear
an oath before the Lord at the temple of Jerusalem that they
would henceforth keep His commandments, as we see here:

"And Shaphan the scribe shewed the king, saying, Hilkiah the
priest hath delivered me a book. And Shaphan read it before
the king. And it came to pass, when the king had heard the
words of the book of the law, that he rent his clothes. And
the king commanded Hilkiah the priest, and Ahikam the son of
Shaphan, and Achbor the son of Michaiah, and Shaphan the
scribe, and Asahiah a servant of the king's, saying, Go ye,
enquire of the LORD for me, and for the people, and for all
Judah, concerning the words of this book that is found: for
great is the wrath of the LORD that is kindled against us,
because our fathers have not hearkened unto the words of this
book, to do according unto all that which is written
concerning us. So Hilkiah the priest, and Ahikam, and Achbor,
and Shaphan, and Asahiah, went unto Huldah the prophetess,
the wife of Shallum the son of Tikvah, the son of Harhas,
keeper of the wardrobe; (now she dwelt in Jerusalem in the
college;) and they communed with her. And she said unto them,
Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Tell the man that sent you
to me, Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will bring evil upon
this place, and upon the inhabitants thereof, even all the
words of the book which the king of Judah hath read: Because
they have forsaken me, and have burned incense unto other
gods, that they might provoke me to anger with all the works
of their hands; therefore my wrath shall be kindled against
this place, and shall not be quenched. But to the king of
Judah which sent you to enquire of the LORD, thus shall ye
say to him, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, As touching
the words which thou hast heard; Because thine heart was
tender, and thou hast humbled thyself before the LORD, when
thou heardest what I spake against this place, and against
the inhabitants thereof, that they should become a desolation
and a curse, and hast rent thy clothes, and wept before me; I
also have heard thee, saith the LORD. Behold therefore, I
will gather thee unto thy fathers, and thou shalt be gathered
into thy grave in peace; and thine eyes shall not see all the
evil which I will bring upon this place. And they brought the
king word again. And the king sent, and they gathered unto
him all the elders of Judah and of Jerusalem. And the king
went up into the house of the LORD, and all the men of Judah
and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem with him, and the
priests, and the prophets, and all the people, both small and
great: and he read in their ears all the words of the book of
the covenant which was found in the house of the LORD. And
the king stood by a pillar, and made a covenant before the
LORD, to walk after the LORD, and to keep his commandments
and his testimonies and his statutes with all their heart and
all their soul, to perform the words of this covenant that
were written in this book. And all the people stood to the
covenant. And the king commanded Hilkiah the high priest, and
the priests of the second order, and the keepers of the door,
to bring forth out of the temple of the LORD all the vessels
that were made for Baal, and for the grove, and for all the
host of heaven: and he burned them without Jerusalem in the
fields of Kidron, and carried the ashes of them unto Bethel.
And he put down the idolatrous priests, whom the kings of
Judah had ordained to burn incense in the high places in the
cities of Judah, and in the places round about Jerusalem;
them also that burned incense unto Baal, to the sun, and to
the moon, and to the planets, and to all the host of heaven.
And he brought out the grove from the house of the LORD,
without Jerusalem, unto the brook Kidron, and burned it at
the brook Kidron, and stamped it small to powder, and cast
the powder thereof upon the graves of the children of the
people. And he brake down the houses of the sodomites, that
were by the house of the LORD, where the women wove hangings
for the grove. And he brought all the priests out of the
cities of Judah, and defiled the high places where the
priests had burned incense, from Geba to Beersheba, and brake
down the high places of the gates that were in the entering
in of the gate of Joshua the governor of the city, which were
on a man's left hand at the gate of the city. Nevertheless
the priests of the high places came not up to the altar of
the LORD in Jerusalem, but they did eat of the unleavened
bread among their brethren. And he defiled Topheth, which is
in the valley of the children of Hinnom, that no man might
make his son or his daughter to pass through the fire to
Molech. And he took away the horses that the kings of Judah
had given to the sun, at the entering in of the house of the
LORD, by the chamber of Nathanmelech the chamberlain, which
was in the suburbs, and burned the chariots of the sun with
fire. And the altars that were on the top of the upper
chamber of Ahaz, which the kings of Judah had made, and the
altars which Manasseh had made in the two courts of the house
of the LORD, did the king beat down, and brake them down from
thence, and cast the dust of them into the brook Kidron. And
the high places that were before Jerusalem, which were on the
right hand of the mount of corruption, which Solomon the king
of Israel had builded for Ashtoreth the abomination of the
Zidonians, and for Chemosh the abomination of the Moabites,
and for Milcom the abomination of the children of Ammon, did
the king defile. And he brake in pieces the images, and cut
down the groves, and filled their places with the bones of
men. Moreover the altar that was at Bethel, and the high
place which Jeroboam the son of Nebat, who made Israel to
sin, had made, both that altar and the high place he brake
down, and burned the high place, and stamped it small to
powder, and burned the grove. And as Josiah turned himself,
he spied the sepulchres that were there in the mount, and
sent, and took the bones out of the sepulchres, and burned
them upon the altar, and polluted it, according to the word
of the LORD which the man of God proclaimed, who proclaimed
these words. Then he said, What title is that that I see? And
the men of the city told him, It is the sepulchre of the man
of God, which came from Judah, and proclaimed these things
that thou hast done against the altar of Bethel. And he said,
Let him alone; let no man move his bones. So they let his
bones alone, with the bones of the prophet that came out of
Samaria. And all the houses also of the high places that were
in the cities of Samaria, which the kings of Israel had made
to provoke the LORD to anger, Josiah took away, and did to
them according to all the acts that he had done in Bethel.
And he slew all the priests of the high places that were
there upon the altars, and burned men's bones upon them, and
returned to Jerusalem. And the king commanded all the people,
saying, Keep the passover unto the LORD your God, as it is
written in the book of this covenant. Surely there was not
holden such a passover from the days of the judges that
judged Israel, nor in all the days of the kings of Israel,
nor of the kings of Judah; But in the eighteenth year of king
Josiah, wherein this passover was holden to the LORD in
Jerusalem. Moreover the workers with familiar spirits, and
the wizards, and the images, and the idols, and all the
abominations that were spied in the land of Judah and in
Jerusalem, did Josiah put away, that he might perform the
words of the law which were written in the book that Hilkiah
the priest found in the house of the LORD. And like unto him
was there no king before him, that turned to the LORD with
all his heart, and with all his soul, and with all his might,
according to all the law of Moses; neither after him arose
there any like him."
2 Kings 22:10-23:25, KJV

Sadly, upon King Josiah's death by the hand of Pharaohnechoh
king of Egypt at a battle at Megiddo, Jehoahaz, Josiah's son,
became the new king of Judah; and unlike his father, Jehoahaz
again did evil in the sight of the Lord. In spite of all that
King Josiah had done, generally-speaking, the Lord was still
not pleased with the people of Judah and Jerusalem. Thus, as
I point out in some of the aforementioned articles, God used
the armies of Babylonian king, Nebuchadnezzar, to lay siege
against Jerusalem three times. The third time, Jerusalem was
utterly destroyed, along with Solomon's temple, and a large
number of Jews were led into captivity at Babylon for seventy
years. Thus, King Nebuchadnezzar became God's instrument of
judgment.

But the point I wish to make from the previous Bible story is
the following:

Can you imagine any modern leader, be they president, king,
queen or prime minister, carrying out such much-needed, bold
religious reforms like Josiah? It would require a God-fearing
leader who is of outstanding character, faith and courage to
perform such acts. Sadly, to my knowledge, such a leader does
not exist, and probably never will exist. Why? Because unless
they are absolute dictators, the majority of modern leaders
are too beholden to the people, and not to God. They fear the
opinion of the people much more than they fear God's opinion.

What do I mean by this? Allow me to explain it to you this
way:

As we all know, most modern candidates will say anything, do
anything, and promise anything, in order to win an election,
and then to remain in office. It only stands to reason then
that none of them will ever outlaw abortion, declare gay and
lesbian relationships and same-sex "marriage" illegal, make
the worship of the Christian God the one and only acceptable
national religion -- which is also what King Josiah basically
did -- prohibit embryonic stem cell research, dispose of all
nuclear, chemical and biological weapons, put an end to war,
outlaw prostitution, eliminate all illegal drug trafficking,
stamp out organized crime, and in a word, effectively deal
with all of the other ungodly evils which plague the nation.

Any candidate who would actually have the audacity to make
mention of his intention to carry out certain of these goals
would obviously lose a certain percentage of votes with some
of his constituents; and any leader who is already in office
would suffer the same fate, and his popularity would decline.
Thus, all candidates will play the "promises, promises" game
during the campaign, and then once they are elected, they'll
suddenly suffer a strange case of amnesia. Furthermore, the
constitutions of many countries are written in such a way --
meaning with a checks and balances system -- that no leader
could possibly achieve these objectives alone anyway. Such a
leader would have to be a complete dictator.

In short, it seems to me that in the case of the USA at least,
it may very well be some of the very democratic freedoms that
all Americans enjoy, which, in the end, will bring America to
her knees; because in reality, democracy is mob rule. Think
about it. As we have already seen, if the people really don't
want something, and a candidate or leader tries to push it
through anyway, he will quickly lose popular support, and may
not have a political future of any significance. On the other
hand, if a lot of people really do want something, a shrewd
candidate will tell them exactly what they want to hear, and
may even give it to them once he or she is elected, as a kind
of reward for allowing them to play king or queen for a while.
Sadly, what the people sometimes want is not always what is
really best for them; but if it obtains votes, well . . . If
you doubt my words, just look at some of the liberal, ungodly
policies and attitudes of US President Barack Obama. I was no
fan of George W. Bush, but I am even less of a fan of Barack
Hussein Obama.

Furthermore, even those leaders who do openly profess a faith
in God, turn out to be terrible disappointments once they're
elected. Consider the case of US President Jimmy Carter. He
was the first president to be elected from the American Deep
South since 1848, and many Christians were optimistic and had
high hopes in Carter. While there were several high points in
Carter's one term, he was also plagued with one crisis after
another. By the time his term ended, his approval rating had
sunk to a dismal level; although his peace-making endeavors
since that time have greatly aided his public image; so much
so that in 2002 he received the Nobel Peace Prize.

Every president since Carter's time who has openly professed
faith in God has likewise turned out to be a disappoint with
their own share of personal or political laundry to hide. In
the case of US President Ronald Reagan, it was the scandal of
the Iran-Contra affair. With US President Bill Clinton, it
was the Monica Lewinsky affair. For all his talk of being a
Christian, George W. Bush carried on the work of his father,
George H. W. Bush, and engaged the USA in two wars, and did
every thing in his power to hurt the elderly, the poor and
the sick, while he did one favor after another for his rich
buddies. While Barack Obama has gone to great lengths to
emphasize his Christianity, as I point out in such articles
as "Obama, McCain And The Bush Legacy", he clearly embraces
policies which are contrary to God's Word. Consider these:

01. He supports Roe v. Wade.

02. He voted against prohibiting minors from crossing state
lines in order to obtain an abortion.

03. He voted against notifying parents of minor children who
obtain out-of-state abortions.

04. He voted in favor of expanding research to include more
embryonic stem cell lines.

05. He is undecided on whether or not life begins at
conception.

06. He voted against banning partial-birth abortions.

07. He stated that we should trust women to make their own
decisions regarding partial-birth abortion.

08. He is opposed to a constitutional ban on gay and lesbian
"marriage".

09. He believes that homosexual relationships are no more
immoral than heterosexual relationships.

10. On one occasion, in reference to gay and lesbian
marriages, he stated ". . . nor am I willing to accept a
reading of the Bible that considers an obscure line in Romans
to be more defining of Christianity than the Sermon on the
Mount".

11. He opposes gay marriage, but supports civil unions and
gay rights.

12. On one occasion, he remarked that he does not believe
that being homosexual is a curse, and also stated "I do not
believe being gay or lesbian is a choice".

Based on his own record, President Barack Hussein Obama is no
Christian. The truth of the matter, as I've explained before,
is that whenever election time arrives, shrewd politicians
proudly put on their Christian badge and simply use the issue
of religion as a gimmick to win the votes of naive, gullible
Christian voters. Sadly, it works every time.

The fact is, as many of us already know, the world is slowly
becoming more ungodly, and more hardened of heart, with each
passing year. The nations of the world, beginning with the
governments of the world, are becoming so corrupt, so evil,
so self-serving, so blind, so proud and haughty, so deceived,
and so defiant against God, that they no longer want to hear
the truth; and they certainly don't want their constituents
to hear it. So as the world situation continues to spin out
of control; as the weather grows stranger by the year; as one
calamity after another begins to befall us; political leaders
and news commentators will simply hype up the spin, and tell
us even greater lies, in their vain attempts to conceal the
truth.

Why?

Because they most certainly don't want to take the blame, and
they most certainly don't want to lose control of their power.
In fact, as we already know, and as I have pointed out before
in such articles as "From Armageddon To The New Earth", God
Himself will someday soon forcefully rip out the pillows from
underneath their arms, and remove them all from power, when
Jesus Christ and the Heavenly Host intervene at the Battle of
Armageddon, and then set up God's Kingdom upon Earth during
the Age of the Millennium.

You will recall that earlier I wrote that currently, there is
no Christian leader who possesses the faith and the courage
to do the things that are necessary to clean up the nation --
any nation -- or the world for that matter. I was of course
referring to earthly leaders. However, as I just said, there
is definitely One Leader who will get the job done, and much
more. That leader -- Jesus Christ -- will govern this world
with a rod of iron, in what will basically be a Theocratic
Dictatorship; which is exactly what we all need. When Jesus
reigns on the Earth, there won't be any room for foolishness
like political-correctness, corrupt politics, and manipulated
vote-getting. It will be either Jesus' way or the highway, or
worse! Personally, I can't wait -- even though I have to --
because the fact of the matter is that we all need to brought
into line, every last one of us. We need a strong, righteous
leader. We need our Shepherd.

Returning to our earlier discussion, that is why we must do
what we must do; because no one else will do it, and because
God will hold us accountable if we don't. Yes, we may indeed
be hated for speaking the truth and telling people what some
of them don't desire to hear -- that the natural disasters
which are befalling the Earth are a result of an angry God.
Some of us will be ridiculed, persecuted, and perhaps even
killed; but that is the price that we must be willing to pay
as soldiers of Jesus Christ. As the Apostle Paul instructed
us, we must not only preach God's Word, but we must also be
willing to endure hardness as soldiers of Jesus Christ when
that Word is not readily received. The Apostle Jude likewise
tells us that we must contend for the faith, as we see here:

"Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season;
reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and
doctrine."
2 Timothy 4:2, KJV

"Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus
Christ."
2 Timothy 2:3, KJV

"Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall
suffer persecution."
2 Timothy 3:12, KJV

"Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the
common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you,
and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the
faith which was once delivered unto the saints."
Jude 1:3, KJV

If you are interested in learning more about this topic, you
may wish to consider reading the article "Civil Disobedience
And Christian Persecution".

As I worked on this series, I realized that my readers would
probably react to it in a variety of ways. Those who are true
Bible-believing Christians will embrace its contents as truth
which is clearly supported by the Scriptures; while those who
are only nominal Christians will probably react in a negative
manner. Some people -- Christian or otherwise -- are probably
going to be rather offended by the contents of this series;
such as those of you who may actually live in the city of New
Orleans. If you fall into this category, well, I can offer no
apologies. Allow me to remind you of what Jesus Himself had
to say concerning the unbelieving Jewish enemies of His day:

"If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had
sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin."
John 15:22, KJV

In a similar manner, the sins of the residents of New Orleans
have also been exposed, and probably not for the first time.
Not only have their sins been exposed, but if I am correct in
my assertions, it would seem that God may have already judged
them for their sins as well by way of Hurricane Katrina. Now
if you happen to be a current resident of New Orleans, and if
you were involved with the aforementioned dark practices, what
have you done about it since Katrina? Did you understand God's
message? Were you wise enough to repent of your sins? Did you
cease practicing Witchcraft, Voodoo, Hoodoo and other forms of
magick? Or has your pride, foolishness and spiritual blindness
motivated you to continue in your practice of such evil works?
Will God be forced to judge your city again? The choice is up
to you.

If you feel animosity and hatred towards me because I have
dared to speak a truth to you which few others are willing
to do, allow me to ask you a question, just as the Apostle
Paul did in his Epistle to the Christian brethren at Galatia,
after he had delivered a strong rebuke to them:

"Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the
truth?"
Galatians 4:16, KJV

I suspect that after reading this series, other readers may
accuse me of being callous, unloving and perhaps judgmental.
After all, they will claim, Hurricane Katrina was a terrible
tragedy; and it resulted in a tremendous loss of human life,
and a lot of human suffering. Some people will argue that the
last thing that the people of New Orleans need to hear right
now is that they are sinners, and that God dealt them a very
big spanking. "That isn't real Christian love", some may be
tempted to claim; "That is just being judgmental". Well, I'm
sorry to disagree with you if you feel that way, but the fact
of the matter is that the best time to reach people with the
truth after a natural disaster occurs, is while they're still
suffering, and their hearts are still soft and sensitive to
hearing what God may have to say to them. In other words,
before they have an opportunity to harden their hearts again.
