Coincidence?

I did not "write" the message on this page:

I simply created a pretty background for it.

The information was sent by email from a woman named Rita.

I thought it was an appropriate time to post this page as

"tropical storm / hurricane Rita" bears down upon southern Florida.

October 30, 1991:

The Perfect Storm:

Button

As President George H. W. Bush is opening the Madrid (Spain) Conference to consider "land for peace" in Israel's Middle East role, the "perfect storm" develops in the North Atlantic, creating the largest waves ever recorded in that region. The storm travels 1000 miles from "east to west" instead of the normal "west to east" pattern and crashes into the New England Coast. Thirty-five foot waves crash into the Kennebunkport home of President Bush.

Northridge Earthquake

Button

President Bill Clinton meets with Syria's President Hafez el-Assad in Geneva. They talk about a peace agreement with Israel that includes giving up the Golan Heights. Within 24 hours, a powerful 6.9 earthquake rocks Southern California, This quake, centered in Northridge, becomes the second most destructive natural disaster to hit the United States, behind Hurricane Andrew.

January 21, 1998: Lewinsky Scandal—Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu meets with President Clinton at the White House and is coldly received. Clinton and Secretary of State Madeleine Albright refuse to have lunch with him. Shortly afterwards on that day, the Monica Lewinsky scandal breaks into the mass media and begins to occupy a major portion of Clinton's time.

September 28, 1998:

Hurricane George:

Button

As Secretary of State Albright works on the final details of an agreement in which Israel would give up 13 percent of Yesha (Judah and Samaria), Hurricane George slams into the United States Gulf Coast with 110 mph winds and gusts up to 175 mph. The hurricane hits the coast and stalled. On September 28, Clinton meets with Yasser Arafat and Netanyahu at the White House to finalize this land deal. Later, Arafat addresses the United Nations about declaring an independent Palestinian state by May 1999, as Hurricane George pounds the Gulf Coast, causing $1 billion in damage. At the exact time that Arafat departs the country, the storm begins to dissipate.

Texas Flooded:

Button

On October 15, 1998, Arafat and Netanyahu meet at the Wye River Plantation in Maryland. The talks are scheduled to last five days with the focus on Israel giving up 13 percent of Yesha. The talks are extended and conclude on October 23. On October 17, awesome rains and tornadoes hit southern Texas. The San Antonio area is deluged with rain. The rain and flooding in Texas continue until October 22 and then subside. The floods ravage 25 percent of Texas and leave over one billion dollars in damage. On October 21, Clinton declares this section of Texas a major disaster area.

Market Capitalization Evaporates:

Button

Arafat comes to Washington again to meet with President Clinton to raise money for a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as the capital. A total of 42 other nations were represented in Washington. All the nations agreed to give Arafat $3 billion in aid. Clinton promised $400 million, and the European nations $1.7 billion. On the same day, the Dow Jones average drops 216 points, and on December 1, the European Market had its third worst day in history. Hundreds of billions of market capitalization were wiped out in the U.S. and Europe.

Button

May 3, 1999:

Super Tornado:

Button

On the day that Yasser Arafat is scheduled to declare a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as the capital, the most powerful tornado storm system ever to hit the United States sweeps across Oklahoma and Kansas. The winds are clocked at 316 mph the fastest wind speed ever recorded. The declaration is postponed to December 1999 at the request of President Clinton, whose letter to Arafat encourages him in his "aspirations for his own land." He also writes that the Palestinians have a right to "determine their own future on their own land" and that they deserve to "live free, today, tomorrow and forever."

Week of October 11, 1999:

Hurricane, Earthquake and Dow Collapse:

Button

As Jewish settlers in 15 West Bank (Israel) settlements are evicted from the covenant land in Israel, the Dow-Jones financial averages lose 5.7 percent in the worst week since October 1989. On October 15 the Dow lost 266 points, and a hurricane slams into North Carolina. On the next morning, October 16, a magnitude 7.1 earthquake rocks the southwest in the fifth most powerful earthquake in 20th Century. The earthquake was centered in the California desert and did little damage but was felt in three states.

Hurricane Katrina:

Button

Coming right on the heels of the Gaza evacuation that was supported and even urged upon Israel by the US, comes Hurricane Katrina. Projected to be the most expensive natural disaster in our history, it's the latest in a string of events that most experts agree are too consistent to be mere coincidence, but disagree as to their relevance.

Coincidence Is Not A Kosher Word

Button

Well if it's more than coincidence, then what is it? I believe there are both general and specific issues involved here. First the general. As a nation founded upon Judeo-Christian principles, the US has been blessed beyond measure. One of those blessings is that our way of life has been supernaturally protected by the God in whose name we were founded.

But starting about a generation ago, a handful of American's [still a minority today] began a concerted effort to exclude this benevolent God from our life.

While the vast majority disagreed with this effort, we stood by and let it happen.

The statutes written into our constitution to guarantee free religious expression were re-interpreted as freedom from religion.

School prayer was outlawed, and then all public prayer was challenged.

Now some are contending that by merely asking people of faith to pray for the hurricane survivors, President Bush is violating the law.

The right of personal choice was expanded to include some forms of murder, and now 40 million children are dead.

Homosexuality was first tolerated and then protected, now it's being taught in our schools. The list goes on and on.

God created man with free agency, the right of choice. This includes even the right to accept or reject Him. But with every right comes responsibility, with every choice comes consequences.

As we choose to exclude Him, the consequence is a progressive loss of protection.

We shouldn't expect Him to go on sheltering us when we're so determined to get Him out of our lives.

After all, He's trying to persuade us to return to Him. Blessing us hasn't worked. Perhaps the withdrawal of blessings will.

Now For The Specific.

The lessons of history are unmistakably clear. Those who have blessed Abraham have been blessed, while those who have cursed him have been cursed. When our country makes such an obvious change in course toward Israel as our government has recently made, what right have we to expect anything but disaster? The Law of Cause and Effect is clearly established in the 10 incidents I've listed. Even those who vehemently deny the existence of God have seen the trend.

People of Faith united to determine the outcome of the last election. But on the issue of Israel we're hopelessly divided. Many of us have been so blinded by the heresy called Replacement Theology (it teaches that the Church has replaced Israel in God's plan) that we're like Belshazzar, the spoiled Prince of Babylon. We're trembling in fear but can't read the handwriting on the wall.

We need to forget everything else where Israel's concerned and remember this one thing. God has claimed that land for Himself. No power on Earth is great enough to give even one inch of it to anyone else at any time for any reason without suffering the consequences. We now have eleven clear examples of that truth. How many will it take before we learn?

Author Unknown:



Of course it is simply another "coincidence" that Jenifer McCrady disappeared on September 19th, - and today, as hurricane Rita approaches the Florida coast, it is the 9th anniversary of Jenifer's disappearance.

And I am reminded that just one year ago today, this area [Marietta-Belpre 'Ohio' ] was affected by one of the largest floods in my lifetime. Many people continue to try to recover from it.

Now whether it is all coincidence or not - well, I just couldn't say.

Guess everyone can make up their own minds about that.
