Is Disaster Overload a Message in Itself? By Dave Hubley
(There is a special message at the end of this article for those who might happen to read this and do not have Jesus in their life and are looking for peace and a way to better understand the present-day insanity and confusion.)
Absolutely everywhere you look, there are catastrophic weather and geological anomalies occurring. They roll out without a pause.
“Disaster overload” is being subjected to a continuous deluge of distressing news.
The numbing effect that continuous “bad news” has on people often results in many putting on mental blinders and waiting for things to get better, but this often unconsciously activated mental response depends on some indication of that possibility existing.
It has become obvious. There is not even a hint of normal life resuming.
It’s like the elephant in the room, impossible to ignore.
It is no longer happening “over there” or “somewhere else”; it is occurring in every country and on every continent on this staggering and reeling globe.
Could the increasing frequency and increasing severity of these events in themselves be a message directly from God that He is using to force humans into facing the reality of the consequences of their sin and rebellion?
Disasters have always occurred over history, but never like this.
The below list, not of the individual events but a general overview of the “big picture” alone, is, I believe, a significant testimony to their impact on the entire world’s population and the growing realization that something very ominous is building.
It is not necessary for me to provide a list of the specific events. Even if divided into ongoing and recently ended events, the lists would be huge. Again, is that factor alone a message?
>The terms “apocalyptic” and “of Biblical “proportions” are commonly used to describe these events even by the secular media today.
>The severity of the current disastrous events eclipses what would have been considered “normal” cycles of severe weather even just a year ago.
>The simultaneous occurrences are startling in their non-stop frequency.
>100-year events floods, 500-year floods, and even 1000-year floods are descriptors commonly appearing in the news now.
>Not meant to be unkind, but even those who have been plodding along in total ignorance of world conditions are not just starting to take notice but are “aware” and very uneasy about these “natural” disasters.
>The frenetic, “man-caused climate change” clamoring is growing on the part of those who have been swallowed up in its “fear-mongering.”
>Major floods and major droughts are occurring in proximity to each other.
>It is not necessary to “look up” these kinds of catastrophic events as though it requires diligent effort to find reports of them. Just minutes or even seconds online will provide plentiful reports of both ongoing and recent disastrous events.
>Increasing intensities and occurrences of earthquakes worldwide are impossible to ignore.
>Many places have received a year or more rain in one day. One even received 7″ of rain in 45 minutes!
>In others, severe droughts with a huge loss of crop yield and an inability to feed their livestock are occurring – this will result in severe food shortages.
>Horribly destructive wildfires (many being reported as possible intentional arson) are raging out of control all over the globe.
>Wars and rumors of wars abound.
>Human governments and NGOs (non-governmental organizations) are making absurd pronouncements and creating “laws” and policies that clearly fly in the face of facts that even a seven-year-old can reason through.
Jesus warned of conditions that would exist at the end of the age, just prior to His return.
“Then He continued by saying to them, ‘Nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be great earthquakes, and in various places plagues and famines; and there will be terrors and great signs from heaven'” (Luke 21:10-11). Emphasis added by me.
“There will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth dismay among nations, in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves, men fainting from fear and the expectation of the things which are coming upon the world; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken” (Luke 21:25-26). Emphasis added by me.
Is God literally moving heaven and earth to wake people from the mindset that they can continue to ignore their sin and continue in rebellion against Him without any consequences?
Perhaps the most obvious and discouraging circumstance that relates to the signs given by the Lord in the above passage (Luke 21:25-26) is the vast number of people who are reacting without thinking to the unceasing “we must do this in order to save the planet” programming of their minds.
In the book of Isaiah, God has made it clear that people have been gifted with an intellect and that they can reason with it.
“‘Come now, and let us reason together,’ Says the LORD” (Isaiah 1:18a).
I believe that the massive number and intensity of these events are a clear message from God sent in order to urge them to awake from their lethargy; to turn to Him and be saved. (Please see the Special Message at the end of this article.)
God cannot be ignored. He will not be denigrated, and He will not be mocked.
This is meant only in kindness and an appeal to reason: For those who believe in the false narrative of “man-caused climate change” and its mantra of impending doom if the world’s population doesn’t surrender their freedoms (and, by association, their lives).
I would plead with you to consider an old Latin phrase that is completely appropriate to relate to this false narrative.
“Cui Bono,” “Who benefits?”
Who benefits from human physical and mental enslavement?
Who jets all over the world in privately owned aircraft to deceive millions of people and make millions of dollars in the process?
There is also another old Latin phrase that applies to those who have bought into this lie:
“Caveat Emptor,” “Let the buyer beware.”
The special message I promised you:
For anyone who may read this article and has not trusted in Jesus Christ and therefore has no hope or peace in your life.
You can have hope. You can have the peace that Jesus has promised to all who have made Him their Lord and Savior. The peace that passes understanding.
It requires that you come before God on His terms.
And, what are His terms according to His Word?
- Genuine repentance (turning to God instead of continuing to reject or ignore Him).
- Confession of sins (that you are a sinner and acknowledge that to God).
- That you understand that the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23).
- To acknowledge to God that you are unable to pay that debt.
- Belief that Jesus Christ paid your death sentence for you on the cross.
- To believe that Jesus is the Way, the only Way, that God has established by which humans may be saved from the consequences of their sin and rebellion.
God has made it absolutely clear that there is no one who comes before Him, under His terms, that will be refused.
- No one: no race, no color, no country of origin, regardless of any previous belief system: no one.
- No matter what your past sins have been, God can and WILL forgive you because He says He will.
- Salvation is available to everyone without any exceptions.
If you put all your trust for salvation in Jesus, and Him only, you can follow that prayer up by simply saying, “Thank you, Father God, for hearing my prayer and saving me,” because we can trust Him to keep His Word. He always has. He always will.
“Truly, Truly, I say to you that he who hears My words and believes the One who sent Me has eternal life and will not be condemned. He has crossed from death to life” (John 5:24).
There are no answers and there is no hope in the world by governments, organizations, politics or politicians. There are only lies and deception. But you can have the Truth and the peace you seek.
The answers are in the Word of God—The Bible. If you ask God, with all your heart, He will hear you.
“And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:13).
