Judgment in the Storm?

The days between Yom Teruah and Yom Kippur are known as the Days of Awe where we are called to introspection and repentance. On the traditional Hebrew calendar, we are in that time now.

Indeed, the days are filled with awe.  Have you seen this satellite image of Hurricane Matthew from NASA?  It is stunning!  People scoff at the thought that weather can be the hand of Elohim in judgment.  Oh, the Creator can’t do that?  Or He wouldn’t?  Keep reading…

Out of its chamber comes the storm, with cold out of the north.  By the breath of God, ice is given, and the wide waters freeze over.  He weighs the clouds down with moisture, and they flash forth his lightning.  He, by his plans, turns them around, so they do what he commands them anywhere on earth; he brings them forth on the earth sometimes to punish, sometimes to express his grace. Listen to this, Iyov (Job)!  Stop, and consider God’s wonders.  Do you know how God puts them in place, how he causes lightning to flash from his cloud?  Do you know how he balances the clouds?  These are marvels of him who knows everything! You, sweltering in your clothing as the earth lies still under a sultry south wind, can you, with him, spread out the sky, hard as a cast metal mirror? ~~ Job 37: 9-18

As the shofar of Rosh Hashanah has just recently been blown, consider this:

When the shofar is blown in the city, don’t the people tremble?  Can disaster befall a city without Adonai’s having done it? ~~ Amos 3:6

  1. Hey check this out: Hurricane Matthew is going to hit the US, Florida today, 10/6 & 10/7….

    Matthew 10:6 But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel 10:7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. 🤔

    Kinda goes with your picture, ya think?

    1. Great connection!! Let all of the lost sheep wake up, repent and return to YHWH. Each of our individual lives should reflect how very near the Kingdom is, and I’m sure some in the path of this devastating storm will come to realize that. May Adonai shield His own!
      Thanks for sending that!
