"But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect." 1 Peter 3:15
I have seen a number of bad storms. Been a part of a couple of tornado touchdown’s, and even a major microburst…but this is incredible. In the movie Twister one of the storm chasers are asked what an F5 tornado is like. The answer…The finger of God. When you look at the destructive power of the F4 tornado that touch downed in Tuscaloosa, AL you can understand why the comparison is made. I am sure that many will look at this recent outbreak of tornado’s, earthquakes, war’s and famine as the “birth pains” described by Jesus in Matthew 24:8. When you watch some of the video from these tornado’s it is hard not to think that. The destruction and power is incredible. Much like the tsunami and earth quake we witnessed a few months ago.
Again, I urge you not to delay. For the coming of the Lord is swift, and like a thief in the night. Much like the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, we never know when a disaster will strike. You cannot afford to wait. If you are on the fence about commitment to Jesus, get off the fence. He has offered you the gift of eternal life, all you need to do is reach out and grab it. I don’t know if this is the end of the world described in Matthew 24…but I do know this, we will all die, and no one can predict when that will happen. Please pray for those that are in the path of these storms that God will have an impact on their lives. Please pray for those that have lost family members.
Here is a link to some of the photo’s coming out of Alabama and Mississippi. Please continue to pray for these people. They are going to need our prayer and our help.
