There are many natural disasters occurring in our day; earthquakes, tornados, hail the size of tennis balls and there are even volcanoes on the verge of erupting. What is going on? Who do we ascribe this to? Some are ascribing all these or most of these occurrences to H.A.A.R.P. H.A.A.R.P is the abbreviation for High Frequency Active Auroral Research program, an investigation project to understand, simulate and control ionospheric processes.
Is the human race capable of creating some or even all of these disasters?
Who controls the weather? Is it China, Russia or the USA? People claim that this program can control weather patterns and create earthquakes and other natural disasters. Could this be, or is there perhaps another agenda behind this? An agenda that wants to hide the fact that our heavenly Father, YHVH, is orchestrating this; He is calling His people to return to Him.
If you consult the internet, you would easily become convinced that all these phenomena are caused by scientific technology. If you consult the Scripture, you might be convinced otherwise. Let’s see…
Here is some wisdom from the book of Job.
29 â€œCan anyone understand the spreading of the clouds, The thundering of His pavilion? 30 â€œBehold, He spreads His lightning about Him, And He covers the depths of the sea. 31 â€œFor by these He judges peoples; He gives food in abundance. 32 â€œHe covers His hands with the lightning, And commands it to strike the mark. 33 â€œIts noise declares His presence; The cattle also, concerning what is coming up.
2 â€œListen closely to the thunder of His voice, And the rumbling that goes out from His mouth. 3 â€œUnder the whole heaven He lets it loose, And His lightning to the ends of the earth. 4 â€œAfter it, a voice roars; He thunders with His majestic voice, And He does not restrain the lightnings when His voice is heard. 5 â€œElohim thunders with His voice wondrously, Doing great things which we cannot comprehend. 6 â€œFor to the snow He says, â€˜Fall on the earth,â€™ And to the downpour and the rain, â€˜Be strong.â€™ 7 â€œHe seals the hand of every man, That all men may know His work. 8 â€œThen the beast goes into its lair And remains in its den. 9 â€œOut of the south comes the storm, And out of the north the cold. 10 â€œFrom the breath of Elohim ice is made, And the expanse of the waters is frozen. 11 â€œAlso with moisture He loads the thick cloud; He disperses the cloud of His lightning. 12 â€œIt changes direction, turning around by His guidance, That it may do whatever He commands it On the face of the inhabited earth. 13 â€œWhether for correction, or for His world, Or for lovingkindness, He causes it to happen.
We can see from these two quotes from the book of Job that YHVH uses nature for correction or for loving kindness. He causes it to happen!
Here are two other quotes where we can see that it is YHVH that controls whether it hails, thunders or rains on the earth.
23 Moses stretched out his staff toward the sky, and YHVH sent thunder and hail, and fire ran down to the earth. And YHVH rained hail on the land of Egypt.
1 Samuel 12:18
18 So Samuel called to YHVH, and YHVH sent thunder and rain that day; and all the people greatly feared YHVH and Samuel.
The mountains quake at YHVH’s presence
When YHVH gave the Torah to His people, the mountain quaked violently. The mountains quake at His presence.
18 Now Mount Sinai was all in smoke because YHVH descended upon it in fire; and its smoke ascended like the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mountain quaked violently.
7 O Elohim, when You went forth before Your people, When You marched through the wilderness, Selah. 8 The earth quaked; The heavens also dropped rain at the presence of Elohim; Sinai itself quaked at the presence of Elohim, the Elohim of Israel.
4 â€œYHVH, when You went out from Seir, When You marched from the field of Edom, The earth quaked, the heavens also dripped, Even the clouds dripped water. 5 â€œThe mountains quaked at the presence of YHVH, This Sinai, at the presence of YHVH, the Elohim of Israel.
1 Oh, that You would rend the heavens and come down, That the mountains might quake at Your presenceâ€” 2 As fire kindles the brushwood, as fire causes water to boilâ€” To make Your name known to Your adversaries, That the nations may tremble at Your presence! 3 When You did awesome things which we did not expect, You came down, the mountains quaked at Your presence.
10 But YHVH is the true Elohim; He is the living Elohim and the everlasting King. At His wrath the earth quakes, And the nations cannot endure His indignation.
Natural disasters – the result of YHVH’s judgment
YHVH uses natural disasters for punishment. Most of the time people only listen when extreme measures are used!
34 When He killed them, then they sought Him, And returned and searched diligently for Elohim; 35 And they remembered that Elohim was their rock, And the Most High God their Redeemer.
9 At night my soul longs for You, Indeed, my spirit within me seeks You diligently; For when the earth experiences Your judgments The inhabitants of the world learn righteousness.
YHVH uses tornado’s, earthquakes, hail, snow and clouds for His purposes, to get His people to return to Him. Consider the following Scriptures:
6 From YHVH of hosts you will be punished with thunder and earthquake and loud noise, With whirlwind and tempest and the flame of a consuming fire.
16 The waters saw You, O Elohim; The waters saw You, they were in anguish; The deeps also trembled. 17 The clouds poured out water; The skies gave forth a sound; Your arrows flashed here and there. 18 The sound of Your thunder was in the whirlwind; The lightnings lit up the world; The earth trembled and shook. 19 Your way was in the sea And Your paths in the mighty waters, And Your footprints may not be known.
These last two scriptures are very profound, but what caught my attention was the “loud noise” and “the skies gave forth a sound”. Makes you think doesn’t it?
For further study, you can also read Ps 60:1-2; Isa 5:25; Jer 4:24-26.
In the book of Amos, chapter 3, we see YHVH using calamity to call His people to return to Him; how is this different to what we are experiencing?
- He caused “lack of bread in all your places” (Amos 4:6), yet they did not return to Him.
- He withheld rain (Amos 4:7) ,yet they did not return to Him.
- He smote them with scorching wind and mildew (Amos 4:9),they did not return to Him ;
- He sent a plague among them after the manner of Egypt (Amos 4:10), they did not return to Him;
- He slew your young men by the sword (Amos 4:10); however, they did not return to Him!
Another passage is found in Haggai:
7 Thus says YHVH of hosts, â€œConsider your ways!
11 â€œI called for a drought on the land, on the mountains, on the grain, on the new wine, on the oil, on what the ground produces, on men, on cattle, and on all the labor of your hands.â€
17 â€˜I smote you and every work of your hands with blasting wind, mildew and hail; yet you did not come back to Me,â€™ declares YHVH.
In the end times
YHVH will continue to use natural disasters to call His people back to Him! It will even intensify as we get closer to the time of Y’shua’s return.
7 â€œFor nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes.
18 â€œIt will come about on that day, when Gog comes against the land of Israel,â€ declares the YHVH Elohim, â€œthat My fury will mount up in My anger. 19 â€œIn My zeal and in My blazing wrath I declare that on that day there will surely be a great earthquake in the land of Israel. 20 â€œThe fish of the sea, the birds of the heavens, the beasts of the field, all the creeping things that creep on the earth, and all the men who are on the face of the earth will shake at My presence; the mountains also will be thrown down, the steep pathways will collapse and every wall will fall to the ground. 21 â€œI will call for a sword against him on all My mountains,â€ declares YHVH Elohim. â€œEvery manâ€™s sword will be against his brother. 22 â€œWith pestilence and with blood I will enter into judgment with him; and I will rain on him and on his troops, and on the many peoples who are with him, a torrential rain, with hailstones, fire and brimstone. 23 â€œI will magnify Myself, sanctify Myself, and make Myself known in the sight of many nations; and they will know that I am YHVH.â€ â€™
This passage in Ezekiel refers to the end time. YHVH uses a great earthquake here to magnify Himself, to make Himself known in the sight of many nations. He will do this in future.
22 â€œHave you entered the storehouses of the snow, Or have you seen the storehouses of the hail, 23 Which I have reserved for the time of distress, For the day of war and battle?
13 Therefore I will make the heavens tremble, And the earth will be shaken from its place At the fury of YHVH of hosts In the day of His burning anger.
12 I looked when He broke the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth made of hair, and the whole moon became like blood; 13 and the stars of the sky fell to the earth, as a fig tree casts its unripe figs when shaken by a great wind. 14 The sky was split apart like a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. 15 Then the kings of the earth and the great men and the commanders and the rich and the strong and every slave and free man hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains; 16 and they said to the mountains and to the rocks, â€œFall on us and hide us from the presence of Him who sits on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb; 17 for the great day of their wrath has come, and who is able to stand?â€
Who caused this great earthquake? It could only be YHVH! We see “the kings of the earth and the great men and the commanders and the rich and the strong” all hiding in caves. If they caused it to happen, they surely didn’t plan it well!
YHVH is in control of the earth, He is sovereign
8 Fire and hail, snow and clouds; Stormy wind, fulfilling His word;
YHVH creates storms and causes them to stop.
25 For He spoke and raised up a stormy wind, Which lifted up the waves of the sea.
28 Then they cried to YHVH in their trouble, And He brought them out of their distresses. 29 He caused the storm to be still, So that the waves of the sea were hushed.
Conspiracies causes fear and confusion!
It is good to know what’s going on in the world, but how much can we trust the media. How much can we trust the internet? For every article proving something, you might find another disproving the same. This is what counter-intelligence is all about. It gives rise to confusion! You end up asking: “What is actually the truth?”
haSatan is the father of lies, fear and confusion. This is his agenda; he causes enough distraction for you to take your focus off YHVH, the Creator of heaven and earth. You end up spending far too much time studying conspiracies, instead of studying His Word.
I am not denying the existence of technology able to influence some of the weather patterns. This said, can we now generally assume that all natural disasters are caused by man? People tend to do that, slowly but surely, you will start to doubt YHVH’s power, and this will result in you fearing man, and what he can do to you.
Once the adversary has convinced you that man is responsible for controlling most things, including natural disasters, who would you turn to? Would you even consider that YHVH might be using this to call His people back to Him? It is like a huge billboard in front of you, but you don’t see it, because you are focused on some little detail elsewhere.
Fear YHVH and give esteem to Him only. Put your focus entirely on Him and your relationship with Him.
How can you trust Him if you don’t know him?
22 Stop regarding man, whose breath of life is in his nostrils; For why should he be esteemed?
1 Chronicles 29:11
11 â€œYours, O YHVH, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, indeed everything that is in the heavens and the earth; Yours is the dominion, O YHVH, and You exalt Yourself as head over all.
YHVH is in control of the universe and uses everything for His purposes. Fear only Him and keep your eyes on Him. Return to Him and He will protect you.
27 For, behold, those who are far from You will perish; You have destroyed all those who are unfaithful to You. 28 But as for me, the nearness of Elohim is my good; I have made YHVH Elohim my refuge, That I may tell of all Your works.
You are precious to our heavenly Father. You are His child! Fear only Him and it will be well with you!
29 â€œAre not two sparrows sold for a cent? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. 30 â€œBut the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 â€œSo do not fear; you are more valuable than many sparrows.
Stop wasting your time! Time is precious, spend your time doing something with eternal value.
