IS AMERICA Under JUDGMENT? -The Facts by Andrew Strom Our heart certainly goes out to the people caught up in recent disasters. I have been involved in disaster relief myself, and know how heart-rending it can be. But still, this question needs to be asked. Last week's "Super-storm" - the worst ever recorded on the East Coast and the financial center of the USA - was just one in a long line of "historic" catastrophes to hit the United States in the last 11 years. It follows right on the heels of one of the worst droughts ever recorded in America which occurred this summer - the most severe in more than half a century. In the past I have asked readers to ponder whether the Lord has lifted His hand of protection off the USA more and more, beginning with 9-11. Below is an astonishing list of major disasters that have occurred one after the other in America since 2001:- 2001 - TWIN TOWERS - The worst ever attack on American soil. The most devastating event in living memory. 2005 - HURRICANE KATRINA - The most destructive and expensive hurricane in US history. 2007 - MASSACRE AT VIRGINIA TECH - The worst school shooting in the history of the United States. 2007 - HOUSING CRISIS - Start of the worst (by far) housing crash in US history. Millions lose their homes across the nation. 2008 - FINANCIAL PANIC - The beginning of the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. (-Still ongoing). 2011 - TORNADO OUTBREAK - The largest outbreak of tornadoes ever recorded. (Also the costliest and most devastating). 2012 - DROUGHT - The worst and most extensive US drought in more than half a century. 2012 - SUPER-STORM - A 1000-mile-wide hurricane that slams into New York and the East Coast harder than any ever recorded. QUESTION - Is God allowing this terrible shaking in order to wake the nation from its deadly spiritual slumber? There was a time when America spread righteousness in the earth. But today the USA is the # 1 exporter of pornography and youth rebellion and homosexuality to the whole world. Does this have anything to do with what is happening? America is the "leader" in so many things. Are there other reasons why she might be under judgment? (It is not that the USA is "worse" than many other nations - but rather that she is a 'leader' - influencing the whole earth with these things. It is this place of "leadership" that makes America a unique case). We would be very interested in your thoughts, my friends. -PLEASE COMMENT on this topic at the website below- http://www.revivalschool.com/ God bless you all. Andrew Strom.
