GOD’S OCTOBER SURPRISE: HURRICANE SANDY POSES “WORST CASE SCENARIO,” SAYS EXPERTS

From the Blog of Joel C. Rosenberg

Posted: October 29, 2012 in Uncategorized

This is God’s “October Surprise.” Hurricane Sandy is a potentially historic, catastrophic, monstrous, devasting storm.

  • * It is a “superstorm” that is 700 miles wide. * It has already killed 66 people. * It is carrying winds of 100 mph or more. * It threatens to knock out power for 60 million Americans or more for days on end. * It threatens to create blizzard conditions in parts of PA, MD, VA and WVA that could drop 2 feet of snow or more on rural communities. * More than 9,000 flights have been canceled. * Schools are closed. * The federal government is mostly closed.* Public transportation is not operating on the much of the East Coast.* The U.S. stock markets are closed.* Those of us in the Washington, D.C. area have been warned to finish last-minute errands by noon and not to go outside after that because conditions will be “life-threatening.” Weather experts say poses the “worst case scenario” to the Eastern seaboard of the United States. Isn’t God trying to get our attention? Just days before one of the most significant and momentous presidential and Congressional elections in American history, I believe God is reminding us that America’s fate lies not in the hands of the politicians, but in His hands. Will America listen? Will we realize how fragile our existence is, how desperately we need the Lord’s divine love and protection?Please pray for the Lord God Almighty to dissipate the intensity of the storm and to protect the lives of people and property. Pray, too, that the Lord uses this moment to motivate Americans to repent of our sins and turn to faith in Jesus Christ as our only hope of personal and national salvation and rescue. “If My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14)

“The projected storm surge from Hurricane Sandy is a “worst case scenario” with devastating waves and tides predicted for the highly populated New York City metro area, government forecasters said Sunday,” reports the Associated Press. Excerpts from the story:

  • The more they observe it, the more the experts worry about the water — which usually kills and does more damage than winds in hurricanes. In this case, seas will be amped up by giant waves and full-moon-powered high tides. That will combine with drenching rains, triggering inland flooding as the hurricane merges with a winter storm system that will worsen it and hold it in place for days.
  • Louis Uccellini, environmental prediction chief for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, told The Associated Press that given Sandy’s due east-to-west track into New Jersey, that puts the worst of the storm surge just north in New York City, Long Island and northern New Jersey. “Yes, this is the worst case scenario,” he said.
  • In a measurement of pure kinetic energy, NOAA’s hurricane research division on Sunday ranked the surge and wave “destruction potential” for Sandy — just the hurricane, not the hybrid storm it will eventually become — at 5.8 on a 0 to 6 scale. The damage expected from winds will be far less, experts said.
  • Weather Underground meteorologist Jeff Masters says that surge destruction potential number is a record and it’s due to the storm’s massive size. The storm surge energy numbers are bigger than the deadly 2005 Hurricane Katrina, but that can be misleading. Katrina’s destruction was concentrated in a small area, making it much worse, Masters said. Sandy’s storm surge energy is spread over a wider area. Also, Katrina hit a city that is below sea level and had problems with levees.
  • National Hurricane Center Director Rick Knabb said Hurricane Sandy’s size means some coastal parts of New York and New Jersey may see water rise from 6 to 11 feet from surge and waves. The rest of the coast north of Virginia can expect 4 to 8 feet of surge.

  1. Thank you for posting this everyone should read this

    • You’re welcome T! God bless you! And I agree! People should begin taking God ALOT more seriously than what they do. Given the times, I think there will be many who will come to repentance..but not enough. I just watched an ‘aftermath’ news clip and the heads of NYC GOVT were saying there has never in recorded history been anything like this to hit NY. Our God is an awesome God, that is for certain! He definitely wants people to wake up.

  2. Lyn, I am writing a blog now and wanted to use this link to your site for this blog post from Joel Rosenberg. Will you give me your permission?

    • Hey sis, do whatever you want with anything I have anytime you want to…you never have to ask me permission..this is the Lord’s space..I just work for Him! God bless you! Furthermore, it’s Joel’s article, not mine! LOL Have fun and praise the Lord!

      • Thanks Lyn, your blog is so informative. I hope to put a spin on what he wrote; he is such a smart guy..thanks…when you read what i write maybe you thought the same thing….

        • Yeah, I am looking forward to see what you’re cooking up! I get your post notifications, but just in case, send me a note when you post it! God bless you! And thanks for the complement sister! I do appreciate it!

  3. 25 years ago I was consumed by the holy spirit , then set apon by evil, I have been fighting demons for all this time but at the same timew I have been caring for people with severe mental health issues. All this is from God almighty .
    I am watching God take his wrath out on the USA . If Lady Liberty does not recend homosexual marrige God will regin down fire to punish the people who sodomize each other and then hand out communion in His Holy Name.
    Am I ready? you Bet .. can’t wait . Keep up the good work wish I could meet you…

    • Thank you Glen for your comment. I agree with you; however, I think homosexuality is only one of the sins people have run off with and accepted as okay…we also have abortion, blatant and outright sex and lust, greed, idolatry (addictions), perversions, blaspheme..you name it..the list could go on and on. We are way worse than Sodom and Gomorrah. Our nation, once founded on God and godly principles, has become a great harlot! The entire world has been taken by Satan and they will be led by him straight to hell. God stands in front of this people on their path with His hand raised up, “Stop! Follow Me! Do not go down this path! Come to Me while you can!” But those people spit in His face, mocking and laughing in His face, even shaking their fist in His face saying, “We do not need You! Get out of our way! We will rise up and we will be victorious without You!” And now God, in His fury comes to say to them, “Woe! Woe! You cannot do it without My Son! All that you build will crumble to the ground in dust and debris! For every day you spend building up, ten years you shall be torn down again until you surrender and repent and say, “Lord! Oh Lord! We were wrong! Forgive us! We can do nothing without You!””

      • You are so right, Lyn, there are more sins than homosexuality. Just as people in biblibal times would sacrifice their children to the god Molech, so do we now sacrifice our children to the god of abortion. It is an abomination to God! We need to repent from all of our sins.

        Sadly, we have kicked God out of most everything here in America. I never thought I would see a day like at the Democratic convention when a motion was made to include God in the platform only to be blasted down with the screams of “nay”! Who could have even imagined that our country would ever stoop to such a level?
