It clearly is not popular to say so, but one cannot help but wonder. Are we under judgment? Is the weather a sign of "global warming" n/k/a "climate change" or "extreme weather" or is God possibly sending us a wake up call?
Most interestingly, the countries not succumbing to same sex marriage n/k/a "marriage equality" are having lovely weather. Those giving into same are having ecological disasters. This is winter. It is one of the harshest, most brutal winters I can recall in my lifetime which is now longer than I usually care to confess.
Recently, against the pleas of a concerned British public official, David Cameron signed a bill allowing same sex marriage into law for that country. Almost immediately killer gale force and flood calamities have plagued his country. The Godly public official warning against it is Councillor David Silvester from Henley-on-Thames. He is catching no small end of ridicule for suggesting this could be Judgment. He is urged to end his "outmoded" world view. In my view, he is quite possibly right. He said the prime minister, David Cameron, had "acted arrogantly against the gospel."
I suspect Lot once received similar chiding from the Sodom & Gomorrah residents who thought it could never happen to them.
Russia has outlawed homosexual proselytizing of its children. We have outlawed in at least two major states: California and New Jersey, counseling of children who are gender confused. In effect, we have legalized homosexual proselytizing of our children.
California is experiencing a historical drought. Our other states are experiencing historical brutal snow and cold.
Russia is having lovely mild weather this winter. Today as I write, it is in the thirties in Moscow. The low temperature in Sochi, Russia today is 43. It will climb to 55 on Sunday.
Here in the Detroit metropolitan area where I live, it is 18 degrees Fahrenheit in Detroit today. Lake Orion, where I live is only 8 degrees Fahrenheit as I write at 8:13 p.m. on Saturday night. This is warmer than it has been in sometime which is not saying much. Lake Orion will rise only to 22 tomorrow. We had no January thaw this year.
Further, I pray for a gradual thaw. If the mountains of snow that have accumulated on our ground between December and the present time melt at once, flooding is a virtual certainty.
I just can't help but wonder. Have we collectively thumbed our noses at God for too long? Is God sending us a serious wake up call in the form of our weather? We were warned scripturally that it would be difficult to maintain our Christianity in the prophesied perilous times to come.
In my humble opinion, those times may well be here.
May the Lord help us all!
