Natural Disasters

I'm not really sure if this is the right sub forum to discuss this topic but what I wanted to know is that are natural disasters such as; Floods, Tsnaumis, Earthquakes, Hurricanes, Cyclones, Tornados etc all part of God's wrath? And are these signs of the End Times?

  • The arch-enemy of all, brings great destruction, as he has in Job, for he has great wrath (Rev. 12:17), and he knows that his time is so very short, even far shorter now than 2000 years ago.  As the Holy Spirit withdraws His presence from the world, they who are unconsecrated to God will be filled with devils (Rev. 18).

    While appearing to the children of men as a great physician who can heal all their maladies, he will bring disease and disaster, until populous cities are reduced to ruin and desolation. Even now he is at work. In accidents and calamities by sea and by land, in great conflagrations, in fierce tornadoes and terrific hailstorms, in tempests, floods, cyclones, tidal waves, and earthquakes, in every place and in a thousand forms, Satan is exercising his power. He sweeps away the ripening harvest, and famine and distress follow. He imparts to the air a deadly taint, and thousands perish by the pestilence. These visitations are to become more and more frequent and disastrous. Destruction will be upon both man and beast. "The earth mourneth and fadeth away," "the haughty people . . . do languish. The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant." Isaiah 24:4, 5.


    And then the great deceiver will persuade men that those who serve God are causing these evils.

    He will even flip the roles as seen in the bible upon God's people, and use the scripture against them.

    Satan can impart scientific knowledge, and give men chapters upon philosophy. He is conversant with history and versed in worldly wisdom.

  • You are going to get many differing answers from people on this one Alison but first I would like to say that the 'Last Days' began in Acts chapter 2 and Peter quoted the prophet Joel to prove his point about what was going on at that point in time..  Some might disagree but the 'Last Days' are probably very synonymus with 'End Times'.  All these things listed above have been going on long before 'Last Days'. The Flood of Noahs time shows this.  God can use what appears to be  natural disasters to punish. This is true even if God does not outright create the disaster. God can arrange for people to be at certain places at certain times. There has always been debate about this.  Needless to say we want to be careful in calling every tornado God's wrath when in reality these are more likely things due to the fall of both Satan and Adam resulting in an unbalanced world.
