Earthquakes, Hurricanes, Fires & Floods: Is This Judgment?

Earthquakes, Hurricanes, Fires & Floods: Is This Judgment?

September 14, 2017
Doug Addison

We are praying for people all over the world who are suffering right now. The earthquake in Mexico, Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, fires in the western United States … and across the Earth, there is a sense of anxiety about terrorism and violence.

People are asking me if there is a prophetic message in it all. My answer is that this is not judgment, but the birthing pains of a coming revival that is going to be the biggest move of God in history. It is upon us now and is already starting.

The enemy wants you to look at the storm and not God.

Let me encourage you though: Jesus spoke of this very season we are in. People have been expecting the Second Coming of Christ, but that cannot happen without the Billion Soul Harvest happening first. Let me show you in the Bible.

You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains.
Matthew 24:6–8 NIV

These words spoken by Jesus are a direct reference to what is happening in the world right now. We are seeing catastrophic events of biblical proportions. This is a time to be encouraged!

Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.
Matthew 24:12–14 NIV

A key phrase here is “the love of most will grow cold.”

The end of the world is not necessarily going to happen the way we might think. Revival and the glory of the Lord is first returning to the Earth.

What is important right now is that you are not in fear and you do not let your love grow cold. Keep the faith and trust God during this time.

On Christmas Day 2016, I heard God say to me that something new was being conceived in the spirit. It is now September, 9 months later, and the baby that represents this new move of God is going to be birthed. September is also the time of the Jewish New Year and Day of Atonement and God is releasing something new in this season. It is not the Second Coming of Christ in the way we might think.

Yes, Jesus is coming again, but first it is in a revival.


We are praying that God will open the heavens and release the floods of His Holy Spirit and the fire of His presence upon us all! We are praying for the victims of all the recent tragedies and for repayment of all their losses.

Blessings,

    God does nothing without purpose.

    The question the Body of Christ then should have been asking is “Jesus, what are you looking to accomplish thru these birthing pains?”

    In what way are these events birthing or bringing forth the will of the Father toward the end time harvest.

    Full prophetic insights will always offer clarity and course of action/correction. This is the higher calling of the seer. We must begin to embrace this if we are to come into Eph 4:11 and Heb 5:12 maturity.

    We need to stop being afraid and allow the full counsel of what is on Father’s heart begin to be discussed in this season.

    Thanks for sharing. God word.

    Hello brothers and sisters in Christ,
    Please pray for my entire family’s salvation. They all are still Muslims. I became Christian in 2007. Lord has already spoken to me that my mother is coming to Christ by summer 2018. Please pray for my mother to have dreams of Lord Jesus and for my entire family to get serious about God. They don’t really care about God. My mother is a devout Muslim and prays five times a day. She is such a sweet mom. Lately her heart has softened so much. Thanks for prayer.

    Please show scripture where there is going to be a great end times revival… My Bible says there will be an end time falling away and that the Saints will be tested in the Great Tribulation… Joel 2 has already occurred (Acts 2) so please show Chapter and verse…

    Thanks…

    Dear Doug: I just read your weekly post and it was exactly what I need to hear. I have been struggling and feeling quite discouraged. I know not to listen to my feelings, but to the Holy Spirit and His spirit within me. Thanks for the encouragement, seriously! It was as if God was speaking right to me through your words. Keep equipping the saints with your gift and anointing from God. Now, I am starting to actually feel excited! God bless you! and thank You, Holy Spirit for being my Comforter!

    Thanks dear brother Doug and your team to get the word out in timely fashion, it really encourages my heart and let’s me know my spirit is synching with Holy Spirit. Sometimes when I drive around I declare “resurrection life and mercies and truth” to pervade over our county and where my husband travels, it can be amazing when I hear something from someone who walked away from a car accident, etc, God hears our cries to bring angels on the scene to rescue the heirs of salvation! Thanks brothers and sisters it’s encouraging to read your stories and words of encouragement! Blessings!

    One of my instructors told me her best friend has suddenly died. I do not know if it was due to the hurricane in Texas, but she flew there today.
    I had cousins in Texas. Fortunately, they relocated before the hurricane arrived in Texas. I am thankful for that.

    How does the billion soul harvest relate to the “falling away” or “great apostasy” spoken of in 2 Thessalonians 2:3? Does the falling away happen first and then the billion soul harvest?

    I used to struggle somewhat with this subject years ago. My wife and Keith Moore really helped me understand this judgment issue better. The LORD told my wife a few years ago, “It’s harvest time.” Those who have been sowing distruction will likely reap distruction unless they repent and ask for mercy. But, those of us who have been sowing life and goodness will reap life and goodness. I have been sowing a lot of life and goodness; so, I am expecting good things. Whooohooo!! I haven’t done everything perfectly, but I am sowing goodness. Keith Moore says you can focus on the “woe” or you can focus on the “Ohh.” Focus on “Ohh, taste and see that the LORD is good!” (PS. 34) By the LORD’s grace, I want to focus on the “Ohh.” It can be disconcerting when the woe seems to come too close to your own house. Two years ago on a Wednesday, I was pulling out of my driveway to go to work in the morning; I was in a great hurry; I was late for work and not in a great mood; and the Holy Spirit prompted me to stop in front of my house and plead the blood of Jesus over my property and to speak protection over my property. I almost didn’t do it. Wow. But, I did it. One week later a tornado went through our neighborhood and toppled lots of trees and damaged every house but mine. Not even one tree was damaged near my property. Not one shingle was askew on my roof. The tornado actually increased my property value by destroying a nasty looking treehouse on my neighbor’s property. The treehouse was right on my property line. The subdivision had attempted to get rid of this treehouse via a lawsuit, but lost the suit and the treehouse owner refused to take it down. The ugly treehouse came completly down on 09-06-2015. (9+6=15) Still not fun to have a tornado come anywhere near your house. 🙂

    Thank you for remembering all of the people in Texas and Florida after the hurricanes! I saw where you are donating money to Houston, thank you, but please don’t forget Southeast Texas. We are not as big and circumference area as Houston however, We have just as much damage and not as much money coming in because were on the outskirts.

    Doug, what I got out of this: is that this message is to set everyone on the straight & narrow, instead of everyone being “emotionally scattered” going in all different kinds of directions, other than “the direction of the Lord” (Matt 24:6-8) because of what’s going on now. Great God-given message my brother!! Thank you! Blessings, Victorious Vicky

      Awesome Vicky, I’m glad that is what you got out of it. When natural disasters happen it can make many of us feel emotionally scattered, especially when we hear various different ideas on what is going on. God is so good and He is up to some amazing things. Bless you!

    I thought you’re eschatology was similar to Jonathan Welton’s where you properly read Matt 24 in historical context to 70AD destruction of Temple…? Why are we saying these words have anything to do with today when 70AD was a historical event that completely ended the old “heaven and earth” “temple system” and “old covenant”?
    Also, a third great awakening is up for contending for but where is “revival” in the Bible? Isn’t revival a penned term for when Christians start to live in the way we were created – supernatural and Kingdom advancing?

    Thank you, Doug, for addressing this. We have a hunger to see the Lord’s full return (whatever that will really look like but it will be AWESOME), but know His patience that He desires none would perish. Our closeness to Him is our security. As i hear your heart, along with our Father’s, His mercy triumphs over His judgement. May we all maintain grace to see above the storms. Recently, the sum of my personal troubles started to touch and harden my heart. It was for only a moment but I quickly turned to Jesus to soften me again. Of course He did. A faithful Savior He is. God bless you all.

    Last week in prayer for creation I heard ” my water just broke.” I sensed a backlog of things to be born that were lost, aborted, stillborn in generations past. We need every seed of life scattered through the ages to be watered and blessed. So affirming to read today’s post. Bring on the midwives!
