WONDERFUL! AWESOME! STAGGERING! PRAISE GOD! HALLELUJAH! GLORIOUS AND VICTORIOUS IS HE! EXALTED BE HIS NAME TO VISIT THIS RAVAGED NATION! MAY THE HARVEST BE PLENTIFUL. COMFORT THOSE WHO MOURN. MAY MOURNING TURN INTO DANCING, ASHES TURN INTO BEAUTY, SACKCLOTH INTO ROBES OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, OH LORD LET THE SHOUTS OF PRAISE AND REJOICING BE HEART IN THE STREETS. LET THEM BURN THEIR WITCHCRAFT FETISHES AND BOOKS AND COOK SOUP FOR ORPHANS OVER IT!!!!Psalm 126:5Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy.What a foretaste of Rev 11:13 !SORRY, I CANNOT HELP TO SHOUT OUT PRAISE!
AMEN!It is a spiritual reality that when natural disasters occur it will cause some folks to rethink their eternal destination and then change course. We can read in the prophets and then in Revelation how God sent earthquakes, etc with the purpose to destroy people's security. People who have experienced earthquakes say how helpless they feel. You cannot get away from it, unlike a hurricane or tornadoes. Just hope and trust the missionaries who work there will be able to disciple them...And now there was a bad one in Chili...It is so encouraging to read how God works to change hearts..the methods certainly are not the ones we would choose. But he is all-wise and will rest in that.God bless, especially the missionaries who minister to these dear souls.ginnyrose
