I've always been fascinated by storms. They are awesome in power and at times totally unpredictable. But one of the main reasons why storms fascinate me is due to a few scriptures I found, like this one from the book of Nahum 1:3:
"The LORD is slow to get angry, but his power is great, and he never lets the guilty go unpunished. He displays his power in the whirlwind and the storm. The billowing clouds are the dust beneath his feet."
This is what Isaiah says about storms:
"From the LORD of hosts you will be punished with thunder and earthquake and loud noise, With whirlwind and tempest and the flame of a consuming fire." Isaiah 29:6
And Jeremiah 4:13 says:
"Behold, he goes up like clouds, And his chariots like the whirlwind; His horses are swifter than eagles. Woe to us, for we are ruined!"
These verses all tell us that God often uses storms - hurricanes, tornadoes and other severe weather phenomenon - to execute His judgments in the Earth. That brings us to this latest hurricane to hit America: Hurricane Hermine.
Some interesting facts and observations I've made about Hurricane Hermine:
*The Norwegian version of Hermine is the name Hermione. This just so happens to be the name of the main female character in the Harry Potter books and movies: Hermione Granger.
*According to the Harry Potter universe, Hermione, being a witch, officially entered Hogswarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry on September 1st 1991. Hurricane Hermine hits Florida on September 1st, 2016.
*Hermione is the feminine Greek variant of the name Hermine, and is believed to mean 'to travel.' The masculine form of this name is Herman, which means 'soldier.' So it's safe to call this particular Hurricane 'the traveling soldier.'
**My personal take: this is a judgment storm. Particularly one sent by God against the spiritual forces of witchcraft in the land. Witchcraft in the Bible is associated with darkness, demonic forces, casting spells, and basically using the power and knowledge of evil spirits to gain an advantage over others.
And God totally forbids it, as it always comes with devastating effects and consequences. Plus, the power of Jesus Christ is far more superior than anything that witchcraft can produce.
*I talk more about the powers of witchcraft in my 2 ebooks: 'Diva Goddess Queen: Breaking the Power of Soul Ties, Lust and Sexual Demons' - and 'Hedonism: Destroying Demonic Sexual Strongholds.' Both are available for immediate download right now.*
It's also interesting to note that Florida, where Hurricane Hermine is landing, currently hosts a town that's known worldwide as the psychic capital of the world: Cassadaga, FL; where over half of the town's residents are psychics, necromancers, occult healers and such.
America along with the rest of the English-speaking world just recently went ape-bananas over the release of the latest installment of the Harry Potter book series. Which currently sits on top of the bestseller lists.
Harry Potter is a series of books - which some say are the most successful books ever published in history - that specifically targets and teaches little children the fundamentals and the workings of witchcraft. Some of those are real spells in those books and movies; so be aware of that if you're into reading that sort of thing.
I also find it interesting that much of the English nations are currently dealing with some type of strange weather occurrence or natural phenomenon: like England that's currently being slammed by Hurricane Gaston; and a major earthquake that just struck off the coast of New Zealand earlier today.
Did we think God Himself wouldn't take notice of how people have brazenly championed witchcraft and its usage - especially among children?
Like I said: just making a few interesting observations. I can observe, can't I???
Never for one second think that God doesn't care what we're up to, or that He's not taking notice. This is HIS world ultimately: like it or not. And it always goes best in humanity's favor when we respect God by doing things His way, instead of our own.
If you're into witchcraft, sorcery, magic or the occult - there's a power far more superior than all these that makes the world of the occult seem like child's play in comparison. And that power belongs to Jesus Christ.
Yes He's a real figure from history, and yes He's alive today. And so is His power. All other power in this universe is trumped by the superior power that comes with that name. Whether it's aliens, djinns, shadow people, demons, familiars, fairies, spirits, angels or ghosts: they all must bow to the greater power that Jesus and His name carries.
So leave the witchcraft and occult stuff alone, and come on over where the real power is! Just thought I'd put the invite out there. ;-)
