Signs of the Last Days - News for the week of Aug 20 - 26, 2017

With apologies, this blog post is a couple days late. Had a busy weekend preparing a Sunday morning presentation on 'Signs and Wonders' - Still applicable for today? (We think they are and judging by the reaction of the congregation after the sermon, many think the same way).

Here's a little something which seems very interesting that I came across in my preparation for Sunday's presentation: Luke 21:25 reads as follows:

There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea.

Note the numbers, 21 and 25.  It just so happened that a sign, (solar eclipse), passed over America on August 21 followed by a raging hurricane with huge swells clobbering the Texas coast on August 25. Is it mere coincidence that recent events in the last week almost match exactly Jesus warning's from so long ago?  (Luke 21:25 = August 21,25).  Not saying this is the fulfillment of this end-times prophecy, …

UPDATE:

At long last the weather has changed in our neck of the woods as cooler weather and some rains have dampened the forests and decreased our summer long fire threats.  The evacuation alerts for this area have now been lifted and our community can now move forward.  We thank God for all he has done during the past several weeks in protecting this and other communities around our province, and we thank all of our readers who have prayed for the situation to resolve.  It was quite the summer, in fact the worst on record for wildfires:

More of B.C. has burned this year than ever before in recorded history http://nationalpost.com/news/canada/more-of-b-c-has-burned-this-year-than-ever-before-in-recorded-history/wcm/d73498d6-161b-418a-8845-412c36a030bf

And of course its not over yet with still more that a month left in the fire season.  It's likely well over a million hectares, (2.5 million acres - the size of Delaware and New Jersey combined), will have been consumed by fire when all…

How's your weather today?  Does it seem to be just a bit out of the ordinary compared to times past? Parts of Europe were burning under the noon-day sun as a heatwave brought +40C, (100+F), temperatures to much of the continent.  Meanwhile in Asia, flash floods from torrential rains are the news makers in that region of the world.  Here in North America, much of the East has seen strong summer storms leaving destruction in its wake from hailstorms and thunderstorms.  Out West, from California to British Columbia, the skies are filled with smoke as vast areas are literally burning up from wildfires.  Here in our home province of British Columbia, the wildfires have consumed 625,000 hectares or 1.5 million acres this summer.  That equates to the size of the province of Prince Edward Island, (the smallest province in Canada).

As an aside, the temperatures have remained in the low to mid 30's Celsius, (90 - 95 F), under a pall of thick smoke with no rain here in Williams Lake.  …
