To quote Charlie Brown, "good grief."
Maybe Bigfoot is a remnant of the nephilim.

"My whole family is barely hanging on....I cant tell them, all I can do is ALWAYS be there with my limited resources just to get them thru another month, trusting in God, interceding for them......healing things with the mother of my son, praying that she see me different and we re-marry, because for 15 years, I have known no other woman?"
The LORD has put it upon my heart to pray that the heart of your wife would be turned back unto you. I trust that many others will join me in this prayer.

"Floods, fires, famines, earthquakes, tornados, hurricanes, meteors, etc. have always been going on."
No, there was a time when none of these things were going on. When man's heart was turned entirely unto God. Before man decided that he would be god. These things happen as a result of our sin. We prepare the way for them by our selfishness and greed and by running away from God because of fear of man, rather than running to God because of fear of being without God. We are to fear God, and not man.

True, for about a week or so until Adam and Eve sinned. All downhill from there, obviously.

Neil, I feel your heart and your passion in all your posts, brother it's hard not to respond sometimes, real hard, but as long as God knows your heart, sometimes it's just better not to respond.
Love You Brother!

I came across this picture this morning and thought I would share it here.
I realize its probably not at all an unusual picture of a storm cloud for those who live in this part of the country but it was just such a reminder to me that storms are coming(are always coming) and to be in prayer. We are told in the WORD that time is short, with that in mind I can think of no better way to spending my time then in prayer for others, seeking JESUS daily, and living my life submitted unto HIM.

Regardless what you think of the weather, be it a harbinger of times to come or is it just nature doing what it always has, there is one thing that adverse weather conditions do and that is force people to consider God.
We live in tornado alley. Once again tornadoes took a similar path when they come a blowing through here. How normal is this? Happened again a few weeks ago in Winston Co., MS.
Or, how about this? Usually when a tornado hits the victims will go live with mamaw, auntie or son/daughter until another place is found to live. BUT what do you do when aunties house as well as mamaws and/or bubbas house have all been destroyed? Happened a few weeks ago in Louisville, MS. Never heard of this...Family lives in different sections of the town and all sections have been hit and destroyed...
Weird? Never heard this this before - and we live in tornado alley.
People are thinking about God. They are talking about the futility of riches, about the fragility of houses, possessions; "naked came I out of the womb and naked will I return." Yup...this is the talk. And no judge can stop it, nor can any law officers arrest people for doing so.
The destruction is vast, mind boggling out at Louisville, MS. When I see it it seems to me that Someone who is in charge of the weather, the storms, puts little value on houses, trees, buildings, property and is not discriminating in destroying. Wealth, fancy houses are not spared - it is totally indiscriminate in its destruction.
Think there is a powerful lesson here. We do well to take lessons and listen to what God is telling us - working through nature to teach us.
PS: BTW, many have heard of the tornado that ripped through Tuscaloosa a few years ago - but do you know the distance between these towns is likely around 90 miles. I somehow suspect God is working to wake up the hardheadness of the religious folks folks here. Too many times after the cleanup people go right back living for the devil like they always have. Revelation teaches us this - God sends calamities but the people did not repent...SAD.

Ginny I appreciate what you posted.
I know I come across as a jerk or an infidel because I dare to point out that there really is nothing strange about our current weather. That was the title of the OP and that simply is not a true statement.
That being said, of course bad weather does indeed happen. I have a wonderful book that belonged to my grandmother titled "The Mighty Whirlwind" by David Wagler. It is an account of the Palm Sunday tornadoes in 1965 and was written soon after the event. The book is chilling because it relies on many eyewitness accounts most of whom were Mennonites that were affected in one way or another. The book was published by a Mennonite publishing house I believe. The author may have been Mennonite but I am not sure about that.
But the overall theme of the book is pretty much what you stated.
If you can find a copy if the book online I highly recommend it.
