What are they telling people? The earth may get smacked with a space rock and there would be no warning. Uh huh. Just like the people in Russia found out recently. It is their way of saying "don't blame us" when the next one hits and you get no warning.
What they don't say is the governments of the world are spending billions of dollars preparing for some kind of cataclysmic event (Rev 6 and 8). They know its coming and they are preparing for it. To be fair, departing Secretary Napolitano did warn people. What I find so interesting is how not one reporter pressed her on what she was referring to? How can you say there is an unprecedented natural disaster coming and nobody asks her to elaborate?
She does not need to elaborate and neither does NASA. We already know what is coming. They have warned us in general terms but the Lord has warned the world in specific terms:
Rev 8:7 The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.
8And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; 9And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.
10And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; 11And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
12And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.
13And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!
Would you characterize this ^^ as an "unprecedented natural disaster?" I would. So....someone, somewhere in government told Secretary Napolitano who in turn warned all of us, but who is listening? Had NASA issued the same warning that Napolitano did it would have tipped their hand a little too much.
Whats the bottom line? The world has been warned. The massive space rock strike that hit Russia was a warning, the warning from DHS was another attempt to get through to people. The most important warning came from God Almighty. Try to talk to most people about this and they roll their eyes immediately. They do not want to hear it.
The Lord never told any of us to ram His message down anyone's throat. People are free to disregard, and scoff and roll their eyes. We have all been given a free will. Those of us who have friends and loved ones however have a special duty to use whatever opening we can in conversations to warn people. They might not listen but we as friends and loved ones at least tried to get through to them.
More important than conversation is to pray for our friends and loved ones. If we really believe that our prayers are powerful and effective how can we not ask the Lord to open their hearts before it is too late. None of us knows the day or our of the Lord's appearance. For this reason we were told to always be watching and ready.
36Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
Mark 13:32But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.
33Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is. 34For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch. 35Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: 36Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping. 37And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.
grace and peace
