In fact, the hurricane predictors are taking heat because they haven’t been able to get their predictions right. They didn’t see Katrina coming, and Florida experienced nary a hurricane at all this year. But in all fairness, can man predict through science the actions, judgments, interventions, and blessings of God in the affairs of men? Science has been elevated as a god for millions; and YHVH the true God is merely causing it to fall on its face before Him, as has every other idol man has set up in his history.
The greater lesson here is this: If God intervenes in the affairs of men to bring His purposes about in the earth, particularly in regard to Israel, the apple of His eye, then man (Hello Bush administration, Olmert administration, Muslim world, and the Quartet) would be very wise to be hands off in regard to Jerusalem and the deportation of Jews from the West Bank, biblical Judea and Samaria. Katrina will pale in comparison to the damage we will bring on ourselves for daring to touch God’s beloved again. That is my new prediction based on the Word of God, and this time I hope I am wrong. But I don’t think so. Is anyone listening?
