Even Secular Mainstream Media News outlets are finding it hard to describe 2017’s recent wildfire outbreak without headlines and phrases depicting Biblical JUDGMENT. Among those that caught my eye were “Apocalyptic Scenes”, “Hell on earth”, “It’s like Armageddon is on”, “An inferno like we’ve never seen before”, and “Is the world ending or something?” None of these phrases were taken from Biblical News Sites, but all were found on secular news sites which normally mock God. The LORD certainly has a way of getting even the most hardened skeptic’s attention.
While there are wildfires every year in the United States and across the globe, this year’s outbreaks have been described as “unusual” and “unprecedented”. Most of the country has found it hard to ignore the current disaster in California, but other States have endured long bouts with fiery flames this year as well. As of October 11th, nearly 9 MILLION acres of land have been burned in the U.S., namely in Oregon, Washington, Montana, and California. This greatly eclipsed the last decade’s average of 6 million per year, which was already extremely high to begin with.
In September, an estimated 1,300,000 acres were burned up throughout Montana. Thus far, over 770,000 acres have been burned across the state of California. 120,000 of that acreage has been scorched in just the past THREE DAYS. Since October 8th, there are at least 17 Cali wildfires burning, which have destroyed over 2,000 structures and forced the evacuation of over 25,000 residents. The fires have burned out of control due to hurricane force winds, with wind gusts as high as 50-80 mph.
Two of the largest fires, the “Tubbs” and “Atlas” fires, have burned around 55,000 acres of land in Sonoma and Napa counties in just three days. In Anaheim, one blaze has burned over 6,000 acres and destroyed at least 25 homes and businesses. More than 5,000 structures are threatened by those flames. The area burned thus far in Napa and Sonoma is 3-times larger than Washington, D.C.. Over 20,000 acres were burned in only a 12-hour period on Monday, meaning that the fires were advancing at a rate of more than a football field EVERY 3 SECONDS.
California’s Governor, Jerry Brown, declared a State of Emergency for Napa, Sonoma and Yuba counties. President Donald Trump declared a major disaster in California, freeing up federal funding and resources to help fight the deadly wildfire outbreak. Authorities have not yet determined the cause of the fires. Plumes of thick smoke and ash from the fires have also ruined the area’s air quality. On Tuesday, the federal AirNow map showed a large portion of Northern California with “Unhealthy” air.
An interesting tidbit for Holy Bible believers is that the wildfires have done significant damage to America’s “Wine Country” and Marijuana farms. At least 12 wineries have reported “significant to total losses”, and at least 7 “pot farms” have been completely destroyed (just months before sales of “legal marijuana” begins in the state). Two things to notice here… First, the numbers 7 and 12 are two of the 3 most significant numbers in the Holy Bible. Second, our God consistently condemns alcohol and recreational drug use in His Word, so it is hard to not see His Hand at work here.
The current wildfires, burning in both Northern and Southern California, are far from being contained. Authorities actually expect them to get worse in the coming days because of continued high winds, and dry weather. No rain is forecast in the wildfire areas over the course of the next week. Ash and smoke from the fires were blocking out the Sun in some parts of California, and images of an eerie orange sky over Disneyland have rattled park-goers. So, if these wildfires are a judgment from the LORD, I’m sure many are asking WHY? I believe I have an answer.
In my articles pertaining to August’s Total Solar Eclipse, I explained why I believed that the Eclipse was a Divine warning to America’s leadership concerning Israeli-Palestinian “Land-for-Peace”. I documented numerous connections between the Eclipse and Israel’s Eternal Capital City, JERUSALEM. I warned that the LORD would rain down historic judgments if the President and his administration did not heed God’s warning. Trump didn’t heed it, and JUDGMENT #1 fell.
Hurricane Harvey formed in the SAME DAY (even the SAME HOURS) that the President’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, was meeting with Israeli and Palestinian leaders to RESTART Obama’s “Land-for-Peace” talks. Not long after, Trump announced that he would be meeting with Israeli Prime Minister NetanYahu and Palestinian president Abbas on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York to lay a specific foundation for the “PEACE” TALKS.
On the FIRST DAY of the week of the UNGA kickoff, JUDGMENT #2, the devastating Hurricane known as IRMA, made landfall in Florida. So, do I believe that the California Wildfire Outbreak is JUDGMENT #3? Yes, I certainly do. I explained in my 2nd eclipse article the importance of Israel’s Capital City, Jerusalem, to Almighty God. I also pointed out how the eclipse appeared to be connected to the Holy City. Unfortunately, it appears that Donald Trump does not read my articles.
Because, though one of his BIGGEST Campaign promises was to “move the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem”, the President has obviously reneged on the pledge. This past Saturday, after 9 months of inaction on the promise, a tv interview of the President with Mike Huckabee aired. The former Arkansas Governor asked Trump when the embassy move would take place. The President responded, “I want to give the Israeli-Palestinian Peace Deal a shot before I EVEN THINK about moving the embassy to Jerusalem”. Wait, WHAT?
Even though he swore up and down the Campaign trail that he keeps his promises, and that the Embassy would surely be moved to Jerusalem under his administration, he now says that he “isn’t even THINKING about it” until he garners a Peace Deal?! Anyone familiar with the conflict knows that any Deal would certainly “DIVIDE JERUSALEM”, and thus render an embassy move meaningless. So, I believe it was no coincidence that less than 24 hours after this interview aired on October 7th, the California Wildfire Outbreak began on October 8th.
Dear Lord, I wish that the so-called “men of God” surrounding the President, and praying over him for photo-ops, would explain to him that attempts to “divide the Holy Land of Israel” always brings God’s JUDGMENTS! As of now, they are obviously not doing their jobs, because Trump seems obsessed with forcing Israel into a “Land-for-Peace” Deal with the Palestinians. 3 historic Judgments have fallen, and how many more will have to fall before the President gets a clue?!
