The below verse is from the Gospel of Luke wherein Jesus forewarned us of the signs indicating the end of the age. There have been many and varied suppositions posed as to what is "what is coming on the world" relative to the the "roaring and tossing of the sea."

With clarity, we can now see that all the suppositions through all the years and by so many people never took something like the Gulf oil spill into account.

When the hurricanes come (aka "roaring and tossing of the sea") and agitate the oil and bring it inland there will be MUCH anguish and anxiety as the vegetation/crops are killed and the drinking water is contaminated by the oil rain seeping into the water table.

Luke 21:25."...On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. 26Men will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world...."

 This is indeed worrisome and heart wrenching for even the heartiest among us. The verse following Luke 21:26 is, however, not only reassuring, but exuberating for those who belong to Christ:

27At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near." 

So, may we bear this in mind and in our hearts, not be troubled, but trust God in all things as all of this was all determined to happen from the beginning of the world.

  1. Been listening today to an interview with Mark Hertsgaard who has just written a book called HOT:Living through the next 50 years on Earth.

    He has done his homework and Global Warming is a fact not a MYTH and he is speaking of Ice Melt and of course when Ice Melts then that amount of water increases and thus there will be an increase of 3' of sea level over a minimal period of time. He sees SanFrancisco Airport underwater and Long Beach Port Underwater and Oakland Airport Underwater. Since Corn is a staple and this particular staple is very delicate relative to moisture and warmth so the corn crops will be affected globally = famine worldwide in the not too distant future. Great Program and reminded me of Jesus statement of the Seas Roaring and the Nations in Perplexity. This Global Warming Thing is becoming a reality the "From a Distance" it seems non-threatening but I believe that will be changing and Distress of Nations will soon ensue.
