God’s Judgment


 

Flooding in Venice, Louisiana after Hurricane ...

Over the past couple of weeks the floodwaters along the rain-swollen Mississippi river and its tributaries have already washed away crops, forced many to seek refuge on higher ground and closed some of the dockside casinos that are vital to the state’s economy. The state gambling industry is taking a hit, with all 19 casinos along the river being shut down by the end of the week, which will cost governments from $12 million to $13 million in taxes per month and put some 13,000 employees temporarily out of work.

I would ask, why is Mississippi’s economy so tied up in the casinos, which take the hard earned dollars of Mississippians and others in nearby states and turns it over to those who would get rich off the poor, who hope to make it big someday.  Does not God’s word say, “The love of money is the source of all evil.” I am reminded of the Katrina hurricane, which took out many of the casinos at that time.  I had been burdened in prayer about the gambling industry taking over Mississippi, and had prayed when I knew the hurricane was coming that God would wipe out the casinos, while he was at it.  Now I am praying that since the flood is approaching MS anyway, that God will take out a few casinos with it.  I had a dream several years back where I was swimming in a flooded river near New Orleans, and someone spoke to me saying, “A great flood is coming to New Orleans.” Now maybe this is just a dream that should be ignored, but it’s significance to me now is apparent.

After Katrina, I talked with a woman about New Orleans, who said, “We’ll build Sodom and Gomorrah right back,” when I suggested that maybe this was the judgment of God.  Well, we may keep on building back what is evil and evil will never go away until Christ comes back, but God does and will bring judgment on an ungodly people, who allow their hearts and lives to be controlled by the love of money, and allow rampant evil to reign in their land.  I don’t know whether this flooding is God’s judgment on us, but it sure looks like the plagues of Egypt to me.  With the 9/11 terrorist attack, Katrina, Rita, the recession in our economy, the oil spill, the floods, the projected loss of food crops, etc. God’s words tells us that as the last days approach, tribulations will be like birth pangs, getting closer and closer together, and worse and worse until the time comes.

So I beg the Christians and non-Christians in this country alike to open your eyes and get on your knees and pray for this country to turn our eyes back to God.  I fear what may happen in the future if we do not.  The plagues will be worse and worse until we do. But God’s word tells us in II Chronicles 7:14,

“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble their hearts and come to me in prayer, searching for me and turning from their evil ways; then I will hear them in heaven, and forgive their sin, and will give life again to their land.

“(CNN) — One by one, disasters have battered the Deep South in recent years: Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, horrific tornadoes, the Gulf oil spill and now a flood of biblical proportions on the Mississippi River. It’s as if Old Testament punishments have befallen the bayous, deltas and savannahs of a region that’s already scourged with staggering poverty. “We’re waiting for the locusts,” commented Kim Fritz, interim executive director of the Mississippi Casino Operators Association. “At a certain point, you have to go: ‘What else?’ ”

 

About mamaheartfilled

I am a mother of eight wonderfully challenging children and fourteen grandkids, of whom I am very proud. I am also a bi-vocational ordained evangelical minister, and a Christian Counselor. I received my B.S. degree in 2004, studying primarily in the areas of Psychology, with minors in Religion and English. I received my Masters Degree in 2009 in Psychological Counseling with an emphasis in Christian Counseling. I have endeavored to paraphrase the Bible, both Old and New Testaments. It is my hope that it will be of some use in the great commission of Christ. My ministry is primarily geared toward victims of sexual and domestic violence, including victims of childhood sexual abuse, whether currently or in the past. Since I have personally experienced the healing hand of God in overcoming many of the life issues that Christians may face, I feel qualified and compelled to discuss them in a truthful and open manner, as God’s word tells us that “We shall know the truth and the truth shall set us free.” God has brought me through such diverse tribulations as sexual, physical, and mental abuse, being a victim of a drunk driving accident, spousal pornography addiction, adultery, divorce, remarriage, a very brief, though unjust, incarceration, and having experienced multiple miscarriages and various other trials. I have been asked to leave two Southern Baptist Churches, due to my being a female, ordained as a minister, and fired from a SBC sponsored Christian School (mostly white) for speaking out against racial prejudice in the Family of God. Through God’s merciful forgiveness of my own sins and inadequacies and God’s grace given to me to forgive those who have been a stumbling block to me, I have overcome many of these adversities. God’s word tells us that “All things work together for good to those who love the Lord and are called according to the purposes of God." Since I have this hope, I believe that God has blessed me with the ability to confront and relate these issues to the Christian community around the world. I hope to be able to use my personal experiences as a ministry of God’s grace and in the comforting of the people of God with the truth of God's mercy. I claim II Corinthians 1: 3 & 4 as my calling, which states: “Blessed be God, the Origin of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Origin of mercies, and the God of comfort; who comforts us in all our troubles, that we may be able to comfort those who are in trouble, by the comfort we ourselves have been given by God.” As I have received the gift of God’s healing, I hope to be able to bring the peace beyond understanding to others with the message of God’s mercy and grace. My love for the Sovereign Lord of my life, Jesus Christ, along with my passion for writing has drawn me to explore these commonly experienced crisis issues from the perspective of my own experience in the hope that I may bring an empathetic and compassionate insight to God’s people. I am now a published author and have several books in publication, including my autobiography, "A Little Redneck Theology." The views expressed in my writings are strictly my own insights, acquired from personal experience and diligent study of the related topics and God’s word concerning them. Though I am an ordained minister, my views should not be considered authoritative. I believe that the Christian community’s ultimate authority is the guidance of the human heart by the Holy Spirit and the Word of God.

    I posted this on May 12, 2012. In this post I told of a dream I had years ago about a flood coming to New Orleans. Hurricane Isaac was the fulfillment of that dream, I believe.
