No prominent U.S. religious figure has opined on divine or supernatural causes of the Japanese quake, but the comments from Ishihara, Beck, Limbaugh and others are reminders of what has been said about a divine role in disasters of the past.U.S. Christian televangelist Pat Robertson said the 2009 earthquake which rocked Haiti and claimed more than 200,000 lives was because the country was "cursed" after making a "pact to the devil."read more: http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/japan-earthquake-tsunami-divine-retribution-natural-disaster-religious/story?id=13167670&page=2

Has not God spoken?
Amos:3:6: Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid? shall there be evil in a city, and the LORD hath not done it?
That link is to page 2 but I have very little to say about secular media's reporting when they hold to their own version of "seperation of church & state" yet their right in there reporting on the state of the church. I'd like to report who owns MSM. Hm?But the U.S. church should look at itself - as another piece from this ABC's facebook reads - "Hallelujah! Christians Pole Dance for Jesus""With what measure you judge ........" - to those who think that Japan is any worse than a country who alleges to be "christian" --- the WORD says - We'll receive DOUBLE for how we've "sinned against or with knowledge".When will ABC practice what they preach on seperation of church & state? Yet, in all fairness - what witness have we given them?What witness have we given the people of Japan by Westernizing them?
"When anyone has in the past they have been ridiculed."As my dear Dad would say, "To each their own."Even His Word, written in the language of it's day, points to 'choice, choice, choice' regarding what we 'choose' to believe.We have the quote from Sec of Def Cohen during the Clinton Admin.... but we have to keep that to ourselves or just discuss it elsewhere, as I do indeed.When your peace returns to you - just move on with whatever it is you researched your heart out over.Yet, Glory to GOD alone, no one can refute the last eight words in Rev 11:18 combined with Matt 24:22.Shalom Sis!

Do you want someone to speak out? When anyone has in the past they have been ridiculed.
The USA is on borrowed time, when will our judgment come? We are supposed to be believers and are held to a higher accounting, than folks that just don't believe period. I would say we all better hold on tight, when the dollar is devalued overnight, or even worse not accepted as the worlds currency anymore,the grief this will cause will make the Japan earthquake, look like a a firecracker just went off over there.
Read the signs of His return Mat.24 Mk13 Lk21. I think the answer is there. May want to use a King James todo tbis.
