About three-quarters of a million more people along the coast in Florida, Mississippi and Alabama also were told to evacuate. Forecasters said Ivan, blamed for at least 68 deaths in the Caribbean, could reach 160 mph and strengthen to Category 5, the highest level, by the time it blows ashore as early as Thursday somewhere along the Gulf Coast.

It'a amazing to me that we take these things so lightly, not thinking at all that these natural phenomina are controlled by the hand of the Almighty. I was speaking about this with a friend earlier this week and he agreed with me and talked about the 'Calling of a Solemn Assembly.' This was a repentance called out to the nation by the President of the United states to seek the face of God over a natural disaster or large amounts, etc. But 9/11 has come and past and 3 monsterous hurricanes almost have and there is no alarm. No repentance, no worries. :cry:Richard Owen Roberts touches on this beautifully in this video: [url=https://www.sermonindex.net/modules/mydownloads/singlefile.php?lid=4163]Corporate Confession and Repentance (video) by Richard Owen Roberts[/url]
The people will go on sleeping. A 9/11 is simply a stirring in the night. Nothing short of invasion or persecution will wake the people up. Everyone prays that the hurricanes and disasters will subside and lessen- and many times they do- making people think that there is no judgement to be had- "hey we have God is the palm of our hands". He has a longsuffering and patience toward this backward people that I can never comprehend.I want to see hearts turned toward the Lord no matter what it takes. Please Lord turn the hearts of your people to you no matter what the cost. Be glorified in the Earth and in North America. In His love, Chanin

OTJer.10 When He uttereth his voice, there is a multitude of waters in the heavens, and He causeth the vapours to ascend from the ends of the earth; He maketh lightnings with rain, and bringeth forth the wind out of His treasures.NTMatt.8 And He saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then He arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm. But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!There is weather ... THEN THERE IS WEATHER! ... Hard to get these scriptural points across to those who don't believe in God, or don't believe in God having a hand in such devastating weather .... and for a reason! So, is it God, or global warming?
