  1. I do not believe the fire in Israel was a divine judgement by God. The fire did not occur because of Allah’s go ahead either. (LOL at that assumption)

    I am not convinced Satan has that power or authority to cause supernatural destruction in nature. Although I am convinced that Satan works through people to cause harm. Example setting fires. I’m not sure if it was stated or noted was this a man made fire that occurred in Israel or is it unknown?

    I agree with the caller who said it was the earth groaning for the return of the Lord.

    Romans 8:22-23 22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. 23 Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of our bodies.

    I do believe that certain areas in this world is not protected by the Lord because there is too much demonic activity going on. Events like the Haiti earthquake or the time of the tsunami storm that took place in 2004.

    You reap what you sow.

  2. Note… When I said “You reap what you sow.”

    I want to add to that. “Sad to say”
    Obviously, it is not “happy to say”

  3. Revelation 16 describes end-time scenarios involving great discomforts such as intense heat from the sun — yet there is still no repentance; in fact, people actually curse God, whom they know is controlling these.

    I wonder if Amos 1:2 occurred to any of the rabbi’s who considered the fire divine judgment:

    2 He said:

    “The LORD roars from Zion
    and thunders from Jerusalem;
    the pastures of the shepherds dry up,
    and the top of Carmel withers.”

    I know this has been seen as already having come to pass. Oftentimes it seems as though prophecy can be understood to repeat itself, but I really don’t know.

    Some people have said that God doesn’t work in that manner anymore — but they usually deny any current spiritual activity as being from God, too, so… But certainly, in the final end-time period, He is using natural forces to punish mankind, giving proof of His power — but amazingly, they not only don’t repent, they curse Him for it…!

    I think perhaps people today are more willing to say that positive events are blessings or miracles — and much more hesitant to describe catastrophes as punishment.

    Yet we do know that in the final end-time period, these occurrences are meant to be read as being from God.

    I can only suspend my own judgment on such matters since their interpretation is beyond me.

    Good show!!
