It's been a week to remember: hurricane-force winds, temps 25 degrees above normal, what little snow we had is melted now, and a plane crashing into an office building in downtown. By the time the winds reached their peak, there were wide-spread power outages from north Anchorage all the way to Wasilla (some 45 miles as the eagle flies) from trees falling on trunk lines.
This morning it's in the low 30s F., with scattered light rain showers. That's still 15 degrees above normal. And that's just here, around Anchorage.
Freak snowstorms across the Lower 48, heat
waves, tornadoes, massive flooding ... the list goes on and on.
But all this got me to thinking (a dangerous pastime, I know) about unusual weather patterns. In the Bible, the Lord has used freakish weather as a harbinger of sovereign acts wherein He took an active role in events.
At the risk of going out on a prophetic limb, I'm keeping an eye on politics and conflicts around the world. And especially on Israel, and the various Islamic threats to that nation.
I expect unprecedented and unusual signs and wonders in the next weeks, both around the world and in this country. Yes, I could be wrong ... but I don't think so.
It's all going according to the Book.

In the meantime, let me wish each of you a happy, safe, and prosperous new year!
