A freak tornado cut through northeast London yesterday, destroying around a hundred homes and injuring half a dozen people. The weather this December has been quite extreme, with gusts of wind up to 70mph and torrential downpours hitting Northern Ireland and the mainland last week. The UK experiences around 30-40 tornadoes each year, but most occur in remote places and out at sea. I've only noticed within the last few years, tornadoes been witnessed in town centres. In August last year, the towns of Bristol and Birmingham were hit by tornadoes, in the space of a week. Looking back, these tornadoes coincided with the start of the disengagement from Gaza. After the disengagement, the US was of course hit by hurricane Katrina, killing thousands and leaving tens of thousands homeless.
Quote: "About 100 homes in ten roads were damaged when the tornado tore through Kensal Rise yesterday morning. Six people were injured, with one man taken to hospital. Describing the latest episode of extreme weather in recent months, residents said that the sky turned black and a lightning strike and massive thunder clap occurred just before the tornado struck. Homeowners barely had time to lock their windows and shut doors before cars were blown across the street, tiles smashed windows and garage roofs peeled off like "lids on tins of baked beans". One shopkeeper described the tornado as "like the Wizard of Oz"...
This particular tornado was apparently the closest ever to have occurred near BBC Television centre. So much so that a BBC cameraman who lived close by was able to grab his camera and record the scene of devastation shortly after it struck. Pity it didn't hit the building. Last night while I was watching the news, a reporter who was covering the story exclaimed, "What is happening with our weather?". My response to that would be, "What is happening with our country?". When a country has largely turned its back on God, legalizes homosexual marriage and its official church and academia persecutes Israel, is it really any wonder when things like freak weather and the scourge of Islamic terror starts hitting home? I believe the US isn't the only country to experience God's removal of His hand of protection.
These verses seem to me to indicate that when a nation turns its back on God, it can only expect to have to deal with terrorism, our enemies gaining power over us and the need for security (ye shall flee when none pursueth you).
