Heavy Storms Batter Britain · February 18, 2014

Travel disruptions continue in the wake of a “multi-pronged attack” of wind, rain and snow that for months has delayed trains and airlines, knocked out power and created treacherous road conditions.

The turbulent weather included hurricane force winds of up to 108 mph that ripped off roofs and flooded residential and business communities in low-lying areas while the North was coated with snow. More than 5,800 properties have been under water. Rail lines have been damaged, and delays and cancellations continue to plague the vast majority of routes stranding or delaying rail passengers.

A recent storm downed power lines and caused a massive half-mile stretch of peat bog fire on the west coast of Wales.
Seventy per cent of the fire and rescue services in England and Wales were involved in the flood relief effort in 246 flood-warning areas, making it the “largest deployment… since the Second World War.”

The relentless two-month storm, sometimes packing 100 mph winds, has also claimed at least ten lives.

Prime Minister David Cameron said the nation is facing the wettest winter season in 250 years. The risk of further flooding is still threatening many more properties as water levels continue to rise on many rivers.

It is not difficult to see how an advanced society can be gradually torn apart by persistent heavy weather.

“It is God who holds in His hands the destiny of souls. He will not always be mocked; He will not always be trifled with. Already His judgments are in the land. Fierce and awful tempests leave destruction and death in their wake. The devouring fire lays low the desolate forest and the crowded city. Storm and shipwreck await those who journey upon the deep. Accident and calamity threaten all who travel upon the land. Hurricanes, earthquakes, sword and famine, follow in quick succession. Yet the hearts of men are hardened. They recognize not the warning voice of God. They will not flee to the only refuge from the gathering storm.” Testimonies for the Church, Vol. 5, page 234

But it’s not going to be some charismatic earthly leader who’s going to deliver you… no, He’s much more superior than that! Jesus is coming soon, but there is a lot of popular misconceptions regarding just how He’s coming. So take a few mi…
