Bob Thiel, the unofficial Official spokesman for the Living Church of God, world's foremost authority on prophetic interpretation, all things Mayan, and the public face of LCG, wants you to know that it is OK if you might want to pray for those who are in the hurricanes path. It is especially OK to pray for loved ones who might be in it's path.
As I mentioned before about this storm, people should prepare as well as pray for protection. People can also pray for the protection of others and the comfort for those who have lost loved ones and/or personal property.
The very idea that ANYONE even needs to have any doubt in their mind if it is OK to pray for those people illustrate just how pathetic the Christian love in the Church of God really is.
So what if you are directly in it's path? Is it wrong to save yourself and your property? Are your desires so corrupt and carnal that you want to prepare for your safety and for your family? Is it carnal to help your neighbors prepare? Apparently the Prophet Thiel, in his capacity as LCG's public face, thinks so. The worlds foremost authority on everything has this advice to give for those that need to "...carnally prepare."
If you are in a likely area to be affected, how can you carnally prepare?Then he has to get a plug in for his book because he has covered all these natural disasters in it:
Some simple steps such as removing items from outside the house that could blow around and either get lost or hurt someone should be removed. People should check to see if they have flashlights and batteries. At least several days of food and water should be stored. Repairing roofs and strengthening weak structures would likely be wise. Sandbags, etc. would seem appropriate in areas that are prone to flooding.
Storm directions often change and many who are not expecting to be affected may well be affected.
Back in 2009, my book, 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect mentioned the following was about to happen:The problem with all these natural disasters is that Americas are too dumb to realize that it is really God trying to wake everyone up so that they quit going to McDonald's on Saturday, blow trumpets on new moons, abstain from piggies and keep the proper calendar. These disasters are supposed to be wake-up calls to sinners.
Odd weather patterns result in food shortages and natural disasters. Matthew 24:7
The world is actually in a berserk transition, as the real age of peace is not yet here. It may be a period of chaos. It is the beginning of sorrows Matthew 24:8
Spiritually speaking, droughts and odd weather problems should serve as a wake-up call. Weather-related troubles with their related social and food issues, of course, have been biblically expected:Pretty soon there will be so many disasters that the government cannot cope with it all and will be so weakened that the invading Germans and Chinese can conquer the country and send all the young men and maidens to Europe to be sex slaves for the Beast Power.
7…And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. (Matthew 24:7-8).
5 When He opened the third seal, I heard the third living creature say, “Come and see.” So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand. 6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine.” (Revelation 6:5-6)
8 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be earthquakes in various places, and there will be famines and troubles. These are the beginnings of sorrows. (Mark 13:8)
Those who think that the USA will always have plenty and can cope with basically all storm will be shocked when that changes. Droughts, floods, hurricanes, other weather issues, pestilences, and a reliance on more and more engineered and hybridized foods are putting the USA, as well as its other Anglo-descended allies, at severe risk of problems of many types including hunger and ultimately successful invasion.
Those who believe the Bible realize that tough times are expected.How nice to be free from all this useless baloney an not have to live a life of fear.
One of the lessons from storms and weather changes should be to tell all that things can and do change. And when the Great Tribulation hits, the change will be more than most people (especially North Americans) thought possible in their lifetimes.
