I don’t say this hurricane is a judgement on Texas
Neither do I say Hurricane Harvey is not a judgement from God.
Wouldn’t it be sad if God sent judgement on a people, and their pastors were busy declaring it was not God’s judgement?
It may be just as wrong to falsely declare this is not a judgement from God, as to falsely declare this is a judgement from God.
If you don’t know for sure, then say you don’t know for sure.
I do not count out the possibility that God may at times give certain preachers special discernment in these matters.
And, Lord knows there is plenty for God to judge in Texas and most every other state.
Whether this is simply a natural disaster, or a judgement from God, we all need to get closer to Almighty God and pray that God might send revival to our land.
Scripture to ponder:
For they have healed the hurt of the daughter of My people slightly, saying, ‘Peace, peace!’ When there is no peace. -Jeremiah 8:11
That is, the prophets of Israel who prophesy concerning Jerusalem, and who see visions of peace for her when there is no peace, says the Lord God. -Ezekiel 13:16
“The prophet who has a dream, let him tell a dream; And he who has My word, let him speak My word faithfully. What is the chaff to the wheat?” says the Lord. -Jeremiah 23:28
