California Fires

My heart goes out to those in California facing fire danger as two (NOW 3 as of Sunday) major fires are running rampant. Thousands of people have evacuated their homes and over 950 homes have been destroyed.

However, I can't help to think this is happening for a reason. I think of Proposition 8 dealing with gay marriage. The majority of people in California voted to make same sex marriage illegal. Then people started marching and crying and whining. They are so blinded by their sin. They are all over the TV trying to convince the rest of the world that their sinful ways are right & just. I have heard some say it is their constitutional right to marry who they want.

I think of those who wrote the constitution. They must be rolling over in their graves. They did not design the constitution to promote sinfulness.

Over half of my family lives in California and I am thankful they are the Christians who have voted against same sex marriage. But it saddens me how so many of the people of California have forsaken God.

These fires remind me of Sodom & Gomorrah. Genesis is very clear that the sin of Sodom, homosexuality, brought on the destruction of the city. The Lord let fire and brimstone rain down on the city, all of it inhabitants, save Lot and his two daughters, were destroyed. I can’t help to think God has allowed these fires to wake or even warn the people of California to turn from their sinful ways.

Please be praying for those in California. Pray God will open their eyes to their wicked ways. Pray they will renounce their sinful ways & flesh and set their faces Heavenward. Pray for the Christians of California to not be complacent but to stand up for Godliness, to endure persecution for what is right & true.

Good observation! I said the same thing to Helen the other day when I read it on the internet. It is definitely time to take a stand on the Word of God and against popular culture. At the same time like the city of Ninevah may the Lord raise up a Jonah and grant repentance to all who hear the Word of the Lord. Keep up the good word.

That's a good point, I have not looked at it that way but it makes sense. Definitely a good thing to add to our prayer list.

Greetings from Sodom and Gomorrah. This is not about depriving people of their rights, this is about the use of the term marriage. Same sex couples who are registered domestic partners have the same rights under state law as married persons. Federal law does not grant them certain rights and the gay movement does not want to take this issue to federal courts. Please pray that the state judges who will hear this case will rule according to state law and not personal bias.
