This will be a continuing thread as more and more catastrophes hit this nation. I'll be adding to it as events occur.
In my May 11 message, America's Burial, I said: When we hear that the Lord's wrath will descend upon us and we will be destroyed "in one day", we think in human terms, while God thinks in His terms. "My ways are not your ways, and My thoughts are not your thoughts." "A day to the Lord is like a thousand years". In this case "in one day" means step-by-step over several years of our time, catastrophe after catastrophe after catastophe after catastrophe. The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico was the beginning, the floods in Nashville were another step, the tornadoes in Oklahoma another step. These steps of destruction will continue one after another after another after another. It is my opinion that they will continue unabated, without letup.
We've had the oil spill which began on April 20, which will continue to be a problem for some time to come and will cost many $ billions to contain and cleanup (if cleanup is even possible in the marshes of Louisiana).
