“Japan Tsunami – 101”…Blog.
*** (Luke 21:11) And great ‘earthquakes’ shall be in different places, and famines and plagues. And there shall be terrors and great signs from Heaven.
*** (Hebrews 12:25) See that you ‘do not’ refuse Him [Jesus] Who speaks. For if they did not escape, those who refused him [Moses] that spoke on earth, much more we shall not escape if we turn away from Him [God] Who speaks from Heaven,
(Heb 12:26) Whose voice then ‘shook’ the earth; but now He has promised, saying, "Yet once more I will not only ‘shake’ the earth, but ‘also’ the heavens."
If you have ever… lived in or visited California; you know the ‘many’ earthquakes there every year, most of them minor ones. I lived in Japan for 2 years and it is about the same there. When I was a child I lived in Hawaii for 2 years also and saw a Tsunami draw out the sea about a mile, but there was ‘no’ rush in by the wave; just a return to a normal beach level. What most do not realize is that it is… “NOT The Earthquake”… that produces the Tsunami; but the amount of “Earth Displaced”… in the under sea area. The 1964 Alaska earthquake was ‘larger’ than the one in Japan today. Here is the data… so that you can compare them.
*** (1Thessalonians 5:21) Prove all things, hold fast to the good.
*** (1Corinthains 14:38) But if any is ignorant, = let him be ignorant.
Many wrongly see… these world tragedies as the end of the age; and the return of Christ. One pastor in the early 1900’s predicted the same at the start of WW1. Many try to fit world events into the Bible to validate it. That is a Wrong Exegesis and God does not need mankind to validate His Holy Word. Can you remember the “Muslim Terrorist Attack of ‘9-11’ on the Twin Trade Towers in New York City? Many too, wrongly believe the ‘End of the Age’. Churches were filled to overflowing; but within months, were once again ‘Empty!’
*** (1Thessalonians 5:3) For when they shall say, Peace and safety! Then sudden destruction comes on them, as travail upon a woman with child. And they shall not escape.
*** (Jeremiah 6:13-14-15) For everyone from the least of them even to the greatest of them cuts off a profit; and from the prophet even to the priest everyone deals falsely.
(Jer 6:14) They have also healed the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace, when there is no peace.
(Jer 6:15) Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? No, they were not at all ashamed, nor could they blush; therefore they shall fall among those who fall. At the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, says Jehovah.
Catastrophe Thinking - 101?
America is a “Spiritually ‘Dying’ Nation”…! Most go about their merry ways; not knowing or caring to know that God’s Judgment is ‘upon’ our nation; for its SIN/SINS! “In God we Trust” is on our money; but ‘not’ in our hearts. We, like the Jews of Jesus’ time; only gave Lip Service to Him. Most today, who ‘call’ themselves Christian; ‘Never’ read and study their Bibles… to Obey God and His Holy Word. Most ‘wrongly think’ that Christian music & entertainment… is the way to worship God. Many have said they are Christians for many years; and have never led or discipled; ‘Anyone to Christ!’ “IF” God ‘did not’ spare His Judgment on Israel His People; “THEN” what make you think He will on America… who are ‘Not’ His Nation or People?
*** (Ezekiel 14:12-13-14) The Word of Jehovah came again to me, saying,
(Eze 14:13) Son of man, when a land sins against Me by traitorous betraying, then I will stretch out My hand on it, and will break the staff of its bread, and will send famine on it, and will cut off man and beast from it.
(Eze 14:14) And though these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they should deliver only their own souls by their righteousness, says the Lord Jehovah.
*** (1Peter 4:17-18-19) For the time has come for the judgment to begin from the house of God. And if it first begins from us, what will be the end of those disobeying the gospel of God?
(1Pe 4:18) And if the righteous one is scarcely saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
(1Pe 4:19) Therefore let those who suffer according to the will of God commit their souls in well-doing, as to a faithful Creator.
*** (Amos 4:10-11) I [God] have sent the plague among you in the way of Egypt; I have slain your young men with the sword, and have taken away your horses. And I have made the stench of your camps to come up into your nostrils; yet you have not returned to Me, says Jehovah.
(Amos 4:11) I have overthrown some among you, as God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah, and you were like a firebrand plucked out of the burning; yet you have not returned to Me, says Jehovah.
*** (Proverbs 14:34) Righteousness lifts up a nation, but sin is a curse to any people.
What has America ‘Done’…? We as a Nation, of whom some 80% claim to be Christian; Do Not Stop Abortion! Over 55,000,000–million; “Innocent Babies” have been ‘Killed’ by their “American Mothers; by Abortion!” America has “Exported this Evil Technology” to other nations. The American Military Hospitals provide it for the Troops; and then ‘Americans’ are praying for their Protection in Foreign Battles? Will God, the God of the Bible; then hear their prayers? Most will not “Speak Out” about this; because they ‘fear’ social rejection from their friends… more than they “Fear God!” “Are You your Brothers’ Keeper”…?
*** (Genesis 4:8-9-10) And Cain talked with his brother Abel. And it happened when they were in the field, Cain rose up against his brother Abel and killed him.
(Gen 4:9) And Jehovah said unto Cain, Where is your brother Abel? And he said, I do not know. Am I my brother's keeper?
(Gen 4:10) And He [God] said, What have you done? The voice of your brother's blood cries to Me [God] from the ground.
*** (Luke 6:26) Woe to you when all men shall speak well of you! For so their fathers did to the false prophets.
*** (Psalms 66:18) If I regard iniquity in my heart, Jehovah [God] will not hear;
*** (Lamentations 3:42-43-44) We have sinned and have rebelled; You have not forgiven.
(Lam 3:43) You have wrapped Yourself with anger and pursued us; You have slain; You have not pitied.
(Lam 3:44) You have wrapped Yourself with a cloud from any prayer passing through.
How about Sexuality & Immorality…? America too, has become the worlds’ “Largest Exporter of Porn!” American TV & Videos are watched worldwide. Their agenda of ‘Sex’ without any restraints from God… has reached into every nation on earth! Our “Cup of Iniquity” is to the brim and overflowing; in the way we have contaminated ‘all’ other peoples. Did you really think that God; was just going to stand by and “Do Nothing?” Our Illegal Drug ‘Use & Trade’ has exceeded “Four Trillion Dollars!” “$4,000,000,000 – Annually!” And we think; God Bless America…? …”Not!”
*** (Luke 16:10-to-13) He who is faithful in the least is also faithful in much. And he who is unjust in the least is also unjust in much.
(Luke 16:11) Therefore if you have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will entrust the true riches to you?
(Luke 16:12) And if you have not been faithful in that which is another's, who shall give you that which is your own?
(Luke 16:13) No servant can serve two masters. For either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will hold to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.
*** (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14) Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter. Fear God, and keep His commandments. For this is the whole duty of man.
(Eccl 12:14) For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it is good, or whether evil.
*** (1Corinthians 10:21) You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. You cannot eat at the table of the Lord and at the table of demons.
Did you really ‘Think’… that all this ‘economic’ devastation and unemployment; was just happenstance ‘and’ bad decisions in Washington…? We now have a President; who is a God Mocker, a supporter of Islam; an abortion supporter; and one who would “Circumvent our Constitution!” Do you think ‘he’ was in the office of President by “Chance?” As the God of Israel allowed; “Wicked Rulers & Kings” in Israel to “Chasten & Spank”… His disobedient followers. So too God has allowed him; to tear down our nation of its “Laws & Sound Financial”… and Exchange them for a Debt; that ‘cannot’ possibly be repaid. It is all because of Our; “Personal & National”… Sin Against God!
*** (Luke 13:3-4-5) I [Jesus] tell you, No. But unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.
(Luke 13:4) Or those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them, do you think that they were sinners above all men who lived in Jerusalem?
(Luke 13:5) I [Jesus] tell you, No. But unless you repent, you will all likewise perish.
*** (Numbers 32:23) But if you will not do so, behold, you have sinned against Jehovah. And be sure your sin will find you out.

Positive thinking for Revival – 101
So, where do ‘You’ go from ‘Here’…? Only those that have been Born Again by God’s Holy Spirit; have access to Him. Perhaps open your Bible and read from Jeremiah 29:11-12-13 and Proverbs 28:13…? And then Cry out to Him for His Mercy & Forgiveness! Confess you SIN/SINS to Him!
Love, in Christ, Roger / Jeremiah 20:9.
