IT HAS BEEN A WINTER TO REMEMBER FOR MUCH OF, IF NOT ALL OF THE USA.
SNOW AND ICE LIKE WAVES OF THE SEA CRASHING UPON MOST OF THE USA, ESPECIALLY THE EASTERN PART OF THE COUNTRY.
NOW THERE IS A WINTER STORM THAT IS COVERING MOST OF THE USA AS A SATELLITE PHOTO SHOWS; MUST BE ONE OF THE LARGEST WINTER STORMS IN LIVING MEMORY TO COVER MOST OF THE NATION.
AND SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA IS STILL UNDER ONE OF THE WORSE DRAUGHTS SINCE THE 1930s.
THE EASTERN SIDE OF CANADA HAS ALSO BEEN UNDER SOME OF THE HEAVIEST SNOW FALLS IN DECADES; WITH TORONTO GETTING SOME OF ITS COLDEST TEMPERATURES IN DECADES. WHEN I LIVED IN THAT AREA FOR 12 YEARS, I LEARNT THAT BEFORE THE WHITE MAN CAME TO NORTH AMERICA, THE INDIANS OF SOUTHERN ONTARIO AND WHAT IS NOW THE NEW YORK STATE, WOULD MIGRATE TO WHAT IS NOW THE CITY OF TORONTO FOR THE WINTER MONTHS; BEING THE MILDEST AREA, AND LEAST AMOUNT OF SNOW.
OVER THE PAST YEARS NOW AND AGAIN I'VE TAKEN YOU TO A PROPHECY IN THE BIBLE THAT HAS MEANING FOR OUR AGE; OUR TIME TODAY.
IT IS I THINK FITTING TO GO THERE AGAIN AS THIS WINTER FOR THE USA AND EASTERN CANADA, HAS BEEN BRUTAL IN MANY WAYS.
THE PROPHECY IS FOUND IN THE BOOK OF AMOS:
"And I also have given you cleanness of teeth in all your cities, and want of bread in all your places: (this is yet to happen, and cannot be said to have taken place to any large degree - Keith Hunt): yet have you not returned unto me, says the Lord. And also I have withheld the rain from you, when there was yet three months to the harvest: and I caused it to rain upon one city, and caused it not to rain upon another city: one piece was rained upon, and the piece where it did not rain withered. So two or three cities wandered unto one city, to drink water, but they were not satisfied: yet you have not returned unto me, says the Lord. I have smitten you with blasting and mildew: when your gardens and your vineyards and your fig trees and your olive trees increased, the palmerworm devoured them; yet you have not returned unto me, says the Lord. I have sent among you the pestilence after the manner of Egypt: your young men have I slain with the sword, and have taken away your horses; and I have made the stink of your camps to come up unto your nostrils: yet you have not returned unto me, says the Lord (think of all those from our lands, killed in the wars in Iraq, and Afghanistan, over the last dozen years - Keith Hunt). I have overthrown some of you, as God overthrew Sodom and Gomorah, and you were as a firebrand plucked out of the burning: yet you have not returned unto me, says the Lord. THEREFORE THUS I WILL DO UNTO YOU, O ISRAEL: AND BECAUSE I WILL DO THIS UNTO YOU, PREPARE TO MEET YOUR GOD, O ISRAEL. FOR, LO, HE THAT FORMS THE MOUNTAINS, AND CREATES THE WIND, AND DECLARES UNTO MAN WHAT IS HIS THOUGHTS, THAT MAKES THE MORNING DARKNESS, AND TREADS UPON THE HIGH PLACES OF THE EARTH, THE LORD, THE GOD OF HOSTS, IS HIS NAME" (AMOS 4:6-13).
MOST OF THE WESTERN WORLD IS THE VERY LITERAL HOUSE OF ISRAEL - THE TEN TRIBE HOUSE OF ISRAEL THAT WAS TAKEN CAPTIVE BY THE ASSYRIAN EMPIRE FROM ABOUT 745 TO 718 B.C. AND NEVER [BUT A VERY VERY FEW] RETURNED TO THE HOLY LAND. THEY MIGRATED NORTH AND WEST AND EVENTUALLY BECAME THE NATIONS OF NORTHWEST EUROPE, THE ENGLISH BRITISH COMMONWEALTH AND THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. THE LATTER TWO PEOPLES BEING OF THE TRIBE OF JOSEPH ISRAEL.
ALL EXPOUNDED IN DETAIL UNDER "HISTORY" ON MY WEBSITE.
WE AS A PEOPLE HAVE SUFFERED THROUGH WARS AND PHYSICAL CALAMITIES IN MANY HORRENDOUS WAYS OVER THE LAST 100 YEARS.
WE ARE SUFFERING THEM STILL TODAY, AND WE SHALL CONTINUE TO SUFFER THEM.
THAT FACT THAT GOD DOES NOT STOP THESE THINGS COMING UPON US, IN THAT SENSE HE SAYS HE BRINGS THEM ON US. THEY SHOULD GET US TO STOP AND SEARCH OUR HEARTS; TO REALIZE THOUGH WE MAY CALL OURSELVES "CHRISTIAN NATIONS" - HAVING A FORM OF GODLINESS - WE ARE IN FACT BECOMING MORE SECULAR EACH MONTH AND YEAR; WE HAVE THROWN AWAY THE BIBLE AS OUR GUIDE TO LIVE BY; WE HAVE NOT REPENTED OF OUR SINFUL WAYS; WE HAVE NOT RETURNED UNTO THE LORD, TO WORSHIP HIM IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH.
THIS PROPHECY IN AMOS IS A LIVING PROPHECY; IT IS FOR TODAY!
WE SHALL SEE ALL OF THIS INCREASE AS THE YEARS GO BY, UP TO THE TIME OF OUR NATIONAL DESTRUCTION AS NATIONS.
WE DO INDEED REAP WHAT WE SOW. WE ARE SOWING SIN AND DEATH; WE ARE CALLING GOOD "BAD" AND BAD "GOOD." WE HAVE THINGS UP-SIDE-DOWN AND INSIDE-OUT!
WE ARE CERTAINLY AS PEOPLES PRACTICING GOD'S WORD WHEN HE SAYS, "THERE IS A WAY THAT SEEMS RIGHT UNTO MEN, BUT THE ENDS THEREOF ARE DEATH."
SO PEOPLES OF ISRAEL, AS YOU WALK AND LIVE IN THE WAYS OF UN-RIGHTEOUSNESS, INDEED IN THE YEARS TO COME, PREPARE TO MEET THY GOD.
