Natural Calamities or Something More?
Posted by lamarzulli on August 23, 2010
Job 1: 9 While he was still speaking, another also came and said, “Your sons and daughters were eating and drinking wine in their oldest brother’s house, “and suddenly a great wind came from across the wilderness and struck the four corners of the house, and it fell on the young people, and they are dead; and I alone have escaped to tell you!”
Commentary & Analysis

Last week when I was on Coast 2 Coast, George Noory asked me whether or not I thought that the rash of so-called natural disasters had a supernatural component. I replied that they might…. and that is the topic of today’s post!
We are told in the Book of Job that a great wind suddenly sprang up and destroyed the house where Job’s children were gathered together feasting. This was a supernatural event in that the fallen One was able to manipulate the weather. There is also the story of the storm, on the Sea of Galilee, that is about to swamp the boat that Jesus is in. We are told that He rebukes it and instantly the storm abated.
Is there a connection here with all of the so-called natural disasters that we have seen in the recent weeks? Several months ago I BLOGGED about the enemy growing bolder. Here’s something to consider. Could it be possible that the heavenly host of angels have withdrawn their protection from us? Could it be that He who restrains has lifted away His hand of restraint and so the Fallen One with his minions are having free reign as it were. I’m not suggesting that we are in the Tribulation, but I am suggesting that something may have shifted in the heavenly realm.
It is possible that some of these disasters have an origin that is not a natural one. We know from the Guidebook to the Supernatural that the Fallen One, i.e. Satan goes about as a roaring lion seeking whomever to destroy. We also know that his job description is to, rob, kill and destroy! The leap is this, is the Fallen One actively manifesting in our dimension in the form of the disasters that happen almost weekly?
This calls for our discernment and I’m not suggesting that we blame everything on the works of the devil. I am however, suggesting that there might be something more than what meets the eye!
In closing today’s Post, here in the west we have moved away from the supernatural because we have scientific explanations for what happens. We pride ourselves in our intellect and ability to reason. All of that is good on one level. However, there is a supernatural dimension and jut because some of us deny it, doesn’t make it any less real.
The Fallen One resides in the Second Heaven. At some point he will be cast out of that abode and then trapped here on earth. As I posted yesterday, we are told when that happens, woe to the inhabitants of earth for the devil has come down to you. I would hold onto this post lightly. I wouldn’t go around telling folks that the floods in Pakistan are the devils work, but I would entertain the possibility that the floods, fires, earthquakes and tsunami’s may have another origin than a natural one…
