Fire Storm in California, An Act of God’s Divine Judgment?

By Helena Lehman

Under a new bill signed by California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, "Mom and Dad" and "husband and wife" were officially banned from being used in California school sex education classes. With a stroke of his pen, the Governor told many California parents that their values do not matter, and they, and their children must be gender-neutral. Additionally, in public schools girls and boys can now use each other's restrooms. Therefore, in California, no distinction is being made between men and women, as if all the old biblical taboos and boundaries God put in place can be swept under the rug for an ungodly bid at freedom, and open rebellion against God, who “made them male and female.”

Folks, I don’t know about you, but doesn’t it seem patently obvious that these fires raging out of control in California grew worse than they have ever been in California’s history shortly after this bill was signed? Could it be that Yahweh God was judging the people of California who welcomed, and applauded this new bill that obviously was passed to please the huge Gay community in California, which has the largest openly, and repugnantly vocal Gay community in the world, and whose dollars help fund the multi-billion dollar pornographic film industry in Hollywood?

While I see the clear signs of Yahweh’s disgust, and open judgement in these raging fires, the rest of the world has been completely dumb about it. Instead, the media focused on how well the government responded to the disaster, and readily assisted the people who had to evacuate their homes. How nice that the government speedily came to the aid of all the computer magnates, gays, entertainment moguls, and people who work for them that live there! One wonders if the same courtesy would be shown in a poorer part of America, like the slums in Chicago.

I doubt it.

The Bible teaches that God's judgement rests on anyone who is not doing His Will, including backslidden believers. The Bible also says that no one is good except God, and the heart of man is desperately wicked. In fact, the only way to get to heaven is through Yahshua Ha Mashiach (i.e. Jesus the Christ). But even saved people have to do good works in keeping with the promptings of the Holy Spirit inside them, or they will suffer the consequences.

Since many of the Christians of California were not publicly complaining against the unjust bill that Gov. Schwarzenegger passed, or - for that matter - trying to stop it’s being passed, then THEY WERE NOT DOING GOD’S WILL!!!!!!

In the TV news coverage of the California Fires, I remember seeing that one house in a neighborhood that otherwise was totally burned was not touched by the flames. The people whose house was saved loudly proclaimed that it was a miracle, implying that they knew God had saved their home. At the moment I saw their faces, I heard the Holy Spirit affirming that these people’s home was spared because they did God’s Will whenever they could.

On the same note: this summer, a tornado passed within two blocks of our home. Though our neighbor's home suffered much damage from the high winds, ours was not touched.

Our neighbors are involved in the Mafia, often have loud parties with much drinking and swearing, and have treated us with open contempt and hostility. Meanwhile we are doing our best to live God's way, and pray for His protection almost daily.

Why do you think our house was spared, and not our neighbors?

Something to think about!

God’s Word is faithful and true, and God will not be mocked. We all need to live our lives in accordance with God’s Word, or pay the price by losing much in this life.

Being saved is not the same thing as being blessed. You can be saved without being blessed when you do not do God’s Will. And you can never be blessed unless you do God’s Will.

How it saddens me that this once great country has sunk so morally low!
