"Pilgrim and Sojourner." - 1 Peter 2:11

 "SEVEN YEARS to REPENT" - Hurricane Isaac. -by 'Kelly' & also J. McTernan

I am STRUCK by the understanding of the seven-year period since
Hurricane Katrina. SEVEN YEARS AGO, Katrina struck New
known as "SOUTHERN DECADENCE." Now Hurricane Isaac is
scheduled to hit New Orleans once again - exactly SEVEN YEARS
LATER TO THE DAY (August 29th) on the first day of the "Southern
Decadence" annual convention. How much more blatant can the
King of the Universe be? He gave this nation a grave warning, and
then - according to His great mercy - He gave us SEVEN YEARS

In Hebraic understanding, seven years means "completion." The
opportunity for repentance is complete, but this nation has not only
refused to repent of this sin, which God calls an abomination
(Leviticus 20:13), but it has greatly encouraged and promoted it,
from state to state and throughout the U.S. military.

The word Isaac means "laughter."
Psalm 2:4 "He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; the LORD shall
hold them in derision." Psalm 37:11-13: "The wicked plot against
the just, and gnashes at him with his teeth. The LORD laughs at
him, for He sees that his day is coming."

I do not believe this means our God is taking delight in wiping out
the wicked (those who reject Him and scoff at His Word) ; but I do
believe it means that He will NOT be mocked, and He WILL prove
Himself to be a God of justice, who does what He says He will do.

Let us be sober-minded, friends, and let us be in much prayer for
this nation as ISAAC churns toward the Gulf Coast... The timing
of Hurricane Isaac with Southern Decadence is a sign that God's
patience with America's sin is coming to an end.

Excellent Post!

I love the quote(s) from Psalm.

Thank you for the reminder that God is still watching and taking note of all that we do. Your post also reminds me of the Lord's mercy with seven year cycles of repentance.

It's good to be reminded that there is laughter in heaven.

Thank You,
