There is a new storm brewing in the southern part of the gulf and headed somewhere for the Gulf Coast. The question comes to mind, will we be belted by Gustav? read the following from Michael Mickey of Rapture Alert:
Is Hurricane Gustav going to belt the United States?
by Michael G. Mickey (8-28-08)
Officials in New Orleans are already considering mandatory evacuations in anticipation of a potential direct hit from Gustav, a menacing storm threatening to become a deadly Category 3 hurricane. CNN is reporting that Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal has declared an emergency for the state adding, "We are going to hope for the best, but we're preparing for the worst." Is there any hope in hoping for the best? It's a question on the minds of many Christians today, isn't it? WorldNetDaily.com is reporting that Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is pulling a Solomon, indicating she wants to see the city of Jerusalem split into two cities. One Jerusalem for the Israelis; one for the Palestinians. God help us! The following is an excerpt from the report:
The diplomatic sources said the plan is that once an Israeli-Palestinian deal is reached on paper by January, Bush would issue an official letter guaranteeing that the U.S. supports the conclusions of the document. Any Israeli-Palestinian paper agreement is to finalize a process that began at last November's U.S. backed Annapolis conference, which seeks to create a Palestinian state, at least on paper, before Bush leaves office.
Do we have precedent to be concerned God's wrath may be stirred?
The back cover of White House correspondent Bill Koenig's latest book reads as follows:
What do these major-record setting events have in common?
*The ten costliest insurance events in U.S. history
*The twelve costliest hurricanes in U.S. history
*Three of the four largest tornado outbreaks in U.S. history
*The two largest terrorism events in U.S. history
All of these major catastrophes and many others occurred or began on the very same day or within 24-hours of U.S. presidents Bush, Clinton and Bush applying pressure on Israel to trade her land for promises of peace and security, sponsoring major land for peace meetings, making major public statements pertaining to Israel's covenant land and /or calling for a Palestinian state.
Today there are many who place no value on God's promise of blessing or curse when it comes to our nation doing the right thing where Israel is concerned. The United States is, once again, pressuring the nation of Israel to make land-for-peace concessions with an enemy that has no desire whatsoever to be at peace with them. The goal of all of Israel's enemies today is what it has always been - the complete destruction of the Jewish nation. When we ask Israel to place its enemies in a stronger position militarily to achieve their goals, are we blessing or cursing Israel? I would argue in favor of the latter - and that doesn't bode well for the United States. Genesis 12:3: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. Is Hurricane Gustav going to belt the United States? I wouldn't bet against it. Not right now.
