Sandy – Punishment from God?

Hurricane Sandy left a trail of destruction and many people died unexpectedly. The question is being asked whether it was an act of God. Nothing happens on this earth without the hand of God in it. God’s hand was also in hurricane Sandy.

The truth of the matter is that we will all die, we just don’t know when. Many people are dying every day and they go into eternity lost. Most people are so busy with material things and living their life that they don’t take the time to prepare for eternity. They are suddenly swept away and they end up in eternal damnation.

The love of God wants to turn us around, turn us from evil and wants to give us the opportunity to prepare for eternity. It is rather better that God takes away those things that we love more than Him, so that we can get our focus right and prepare for eternity.

Were those people who were suddenly swept away, were they bigger sinners than us that were not affected? Jesus answered that question: Luke 13:4 “Or do you suppose that those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them were worse culprits than all the men who live in Jerusalem? 5“I tell you, no, but UNLESS YOU REPENT, YOU WILL ALL LIKEWISE PERISH.”

If we do not REPENT, TURN AWAY FROM SIN, seek God, obey Jesus and live righteously, we will all likewise perish. It is a warning to us because God loves us. Eternity is a very long time to spend in damnation. Many people die every day and they stand before Jesus and He says to them:”Go away I never knew you, you who work wickedness.” If we don’t have time for Jesus now, we will not know Him when we die and we will not be received into His kingdom for eternity.

Let us REPENT and seek Jesus, get to know Him, before we likewise perish.

May Jesus bless you.
