People as far away as Texas are smelling this strong sulfur. As usual the media and their 'experts' verge on the ridiculous with their explanations. Dead fish in one place in California is causing a sulfur smell all over the state? Pleeeeeease.
I have a better explanation for the strong sulfur smell:
|A third of mankind was killed by the three plagues of fire,|
smoke and sulfur that came out of their mouths.
Do you think perhaps mankind is being warned again? I do.
Do a word search for sulfur in the bible and draw your own conclusions. We are reading about strong sulfur smells in California at the same time a major river in China runs blood red:http://www.gadling.com/2012/09/11/chinas-golden-waterway-turns-blood-red/
The world's explanations for these things are ridiculous. The 'experts' have nothing to offer in the way of science so they offer you ridiculous stupidity and hope you will buy it. We have had the worst year of catastrophic drought, the largest natural catastrophe in US history, major earthquake signs, sulfur smells in California, tornados in Washington DC and New York City (this past weekend), rivers running blood red in China and Beirut, fish birds large mammals of every kind dieing by the thousands, strange sounds being reported all over the world again and they best the experts have to offer is "the fish did it." Really?
These signs we are seeing are as in our face as they could possibly be. A person would have to be willfully blind or so dead in their sins that they have lost all sensitivity to miss how big the neon sign is flashing in our face. Pre-tribulation tribulation signs are all around us today. The world has been put on notice. How long we have only the Lord knows.
The Feast of Trumpets begins in 5 days. Could the Lord return for us over these days that "no man knows the day or hour?" It is possible. It would be a direct fulfillment of prophesy if it happened on these days. Do I think the Lord will return on 9/16-9/18? Probably not. Why? Because too many people will be expecting Him. Will I be watching and (I pray) ready on those days just in case? You bet I will. We are to be watching and ready every day, not just feast or holy days etc.
The Lord will show up when most people do not expect Him to. Most people today are not watching or ready for the return of the Lord so if He did return this Feast of Trumpets it would still make sense that most people would be surprised. How many self proclaimed Christians not only do not watch for the Lord today but also teach others not to watch? What will be their end?
The Lord commanded us to be ALWAYS on the watch. What does always mean?Luke 21:36Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.”
Ask your 'pre-wrath' and 'post-trib' friends if they are ALWAYS watching and praying to escape all that is about to happen. We know they are not, so what do you call that? Willful disobedience. They know what the command is yet they refuse to do it because they hold the words of men and the doctrines of demons in higher regard than the Word of God. They can wiggle and squirm all they want but this issue is simple and cannot be avoided. Watch ALWAYS. Period.
For those who are watching and ready for the return of the Lord (for the Bride not the "second coming"), the Lord impressed me with this today and I share it with you:4Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Here we see another command. Rejoice 'in the Lord' always. He even said it again REJOICE. Its not an option, its a command. Why? So things will go well with us. There is a way to approach the Lord God Almighty and it is not with whining moaning and grumbling. We are to approach the throne of grace with rejoicing and THANKS.
Do you enjoy having the Lord's ear and having your prayers answered? I do. How do we gain an audience with the Lord? Standing "in Christ" is first, that means we belong to Him and have access to the throne through our Lord Jesus. Next we need to do what we were told to do, rejoice, give thanks, praise Him.
Our God is a God of miracles and this brother is in the midst of one of the greatest personal miracles I have seen yet. No need to go into details but there is a need to share how we approach and commune with this Great God we serve. This brother is nothing, He is everything. This brother would like to encourage you today at this late hour to make your standing "in Christ" firm to to approach Him with the praise, rejoicing, worship and thanks He deserves so things may go well with you.
May the grace and peace of God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ be with us.
