Hurricane Harvey coverage- 2017
HARVEY [Hurricane coverage Friday 8-25 to Tuesday 8-29- 2017] Isaiah 14:31 Howl, O gate; cry, O city; thou, whole Palestina, art dissolved: for there shall come from the north a smoke, and none shall be alone in his appointed times. John 6:60 Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it? NOTE- Obviously I’m covering the Hurricane- but for my Christian friends- there is some teaching on the video’s- and the verses below cover the theme- I just didn’t have time to write a section just for the teaching. These ‘roll-outs’ are all done the same day- and being my power is going on and off as I write- I will be ‘lucky’ to be able to add the links and post it all tonight.[Since I wrote this- it has been 6 days- The power just came on- Tuesday- 8-29-17. I have been without internet- so some of you will see me post about 15 videos in a row- then you will see this post- God bless you all- John]

Power out already?  https://youtu.be/qEsPtuFKIl0 https://ccoutreach87.com/8-25-17-4power-out-already/ .The power went out [briefly] 3 times- already! .Yes- it happens in Corpus a lot- you don’t need Harvey. [overblog- see here https://ccoutreach87.com/2017/08/30/harvey/ ] Isaiah 9:2 The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined [this fits the above video]
Road conditions- Flour Bluff  [1:30 P.M.] https://ccoutreach87.com/8-25-17-road-conditions-flour-bluff-130-pm/ .Took a ride from the Oso Turnaround to the Inter-coastal turnaround- when I posted the video at 1:30 pm local time- these roads were just starting to be non drive-able. As I type now the power outages are getting worse.
Isaiah 43:2 When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. Is. 43:2
Power out= 3 PM - https://ccoutreach87.com/8-25-17-power-out-turtle-cove-3-pm/ .I’m now without power [Turtle Cove]- and using the car battery to upload- At this point I’ll only make You-tube videos and upload to facebook. I’m using the car battery to power the TV [Antenna] and power the internet- as long as the connection stays good- I’ll continue to post. The news reported some people from the Island reported looting. Chief Markle just said it’s a rumor. That’s the latest.
4pm update - https://ccoutreach87.com/8-25-17-4pm/ I might just add a few videos in a row at this point- and try and upload the whole post tonight. I’ll still try and post videos as the hurricane rolls thru- and add those to tomorrows post.
https://youtu.be/4b6qPDYw0NQ  test- Just seeing if the back-up camera [phone] will work.
Update  6:30 pm https://ccoutreach87.com/8-25-17-630-pm-8/
As of now [6pm]- it actually looks like it will make landfall in the next 2-3 hours. The storm seems to have lost it’s organization- meaning the eye wall looks like it might break up over land. Which would mean the predictions of it hovering over the area for a few days- then either go back to the gulf- or head up towards Houston- might all be wrong. Hurricanes- eyes- do not develop over dry land- so if it does what I think- the storm will move in around 8 or 9- yes- there will still be rain- flooding- but by tomorrow it might actually be done. Now- that’s possible. If so- I’ll still make one lase video before I post- and then I’ll go back to the normal routine. Normal? As much as possible- because Power is out right now for about 30 thousand people in the area- and sad to say- our local provider- AEP- even during very light conditions- normally takes days to get the power on. And they have already said- before this event- to expect to wait a week or more if you lose power [Judge Neal]. So- if this is it- it worked out well. [Since I wrote this- the storm has now been north us us- yes for the last 2 days- and has caused much rain- flooding damage- below I cover more]
Landfall - 7:30 pm https://ccoutreach87.com/8-25-17-landfall/ .You see Harvey about 30 minutes before landfall- the hurricane force winds and storm are already here at this point- it’s just the center of the eye has to make it to the barrier islands before it is technically ‘here’.
Aftermath  Friday 8 am https://ccoutreach87.com/8-26-17-aftermath/ .The power is still out and you can see some of the damage that took place at my house- not bad at all. I re-cap some of the verses we started with yesterday from Isaiah- and as soon as I get power I hope to post this whole thing. God bless you all- John
Harvey is considered one of the worst hurricanes to hit the U.S. in many years. It went from a tropical depression to a category 4- in 36 hours. Dale nelson [weatherman from KRIS- local news] said this will be a classic storm that meteorologists will look at for many years. Though Corpus was spared from the devastating wind damage- yet areas north us us were not so lucky. As of now [Saturday] the storm is still making damage- The coverage of the storm is saying it is unique- in the way it developed- in the speed of it’s development- and in the devastation that happened. Many are comparing to to Celia- We have had about 3 hurricanes that came thru our area since Celia- this is no doubt the worst.
ON VIDEO- .See some damage from downtown .Church history .Constantine .4th century Roman Empire .Division between Rome and Constantinople .Arius .First among equals .Byzantium .Keys of the kingdom .Great Schism- 1054 ad .Isaiah 15 .He has spoken thru the prophets [the creed]
It’s 3 pm as I write- on this video I showed some damage from downtown Corpus and you do see the end of the Mass from the historic Cathedral. As I was driving to church I was not sure they would be doing the Sunday Mass today- but I listened to the radio live Mass- and it seemed to be on. The first verses I heard were from Isaiah- and that’s actually the book I wanted to speak on this day [I added the verses from the Mass at the end of this post] On the video I taught more- church history- stuff like that.
But in Isaiah 15 the prophet gives a rebuke to ungodly nations- Isaiah 15:1 The burden of Moab. Because in the night Ar of Moab is laid waste, and brought to silence; because in the night Kir of Moab is laid waste, and brought to silence; Isaiah 15:2 He is gone up to Bajith, and to Dibon, the high places, to weep: Moab shall howl over Nebo, and over Medeba: on all their heads shall be baldness, and every beard cut off. It is a prophecy of judgment- there are particular signs associated with it- Isaiah 15:3 In their streets they shall gird themselves with sackcloth: on the tops of their houses, and in their streets, every one shall howl, weeping abundantly. Isaiah 15:4 And Heshbon shall cry, and Elealeh: their voice shall be heard even unto Jahaz: therefore the armed soldiers of Moab shall cry out; his life shall be grievous unto him. Isaiah 15:5 My heart shall cry out for Moab; his fugitives shall flee unto Zoar, an heifer of three years old: for by the mounting up of Luhith with weeping shall they go it up; for in the way of Horonaim they shall raise up a cry of destruction. Isaiah 15:6 For the waters of Nimrim shall be desolate: for the hay is withered away, the grass faileth, there is no green thing. They will go on tops of houses- There will be a cry of destruction- There will be judgment upon water sources- Te city will be dark and silent- There will be no green thing-
As I cover the hurricane- I have seen reports where city leaders have said their town looks like it would during winter [Port A]- that all the leaves and greenery have been stripped from the trees.
In Houston- they are telling people if the waters get too high to not go into the attic but to climb on the roof.
We have recently been under a water boil notice.
I read this chapter in my orderly reading of the entire Old testament. Meaning- this is probably the first time I have read it in a few years [I go thru the Old and New testament- as well as the books I’m teaching on].
It will probably be a few more years before I read it again.
So when I come across it- in this schedule- to me- it usually is significant. He goes on- Isaiah 15:7 Therefore the abundance they have gotten, and that which they have laid up, shall they carry away to the brook of the willows. Isaiah 15:8 For the cry is gone round about the borders of Moab; the howling thereof unto Eglaim, and the howling thereof unto Beerelim. During time of judgment- people flee with their belongings- they try and save the wealth they have gained over the years. All this- In Isaiah 15- is happening during a time of great turmoil- there is loud crying- and shock. As I have commented about the hurricane- and because I still have no power or internet- This one day ‘roll-out’ has turned into a sort of journal.
I would prefer to have simply posted this whole thing in one day- and moved on. But- I guess I wasn’t supposed to do it that way- yet.
The last verse is what caught my eye- Isaiah 15:9 For the waters of Dimon shall be full of blood: for I will bring more upon Dimon, lions upon him that escapeth of Moab, and upon the remnant of the land. Many of us were hoping the storm would have come thru- and broken over land by now. Yes- the weathermen have said it what do- what it is doing now. As of today-Houston is in very bad flood danger.
The city of Port Aransas [and Rockport] have been hit hard. The terrain of the city has changed- maybe for good.
They are not allowing residents back in yet- and it will be many years before they re-build it back to it’s original setting- if ever.
Earlier I heard our governor say this was the strongest storm to hit the U.S- since 1961. To be honest- I doubted it.
But he said a Cat 4 has not hit the U.S. since then. As of now- it will probably go down as the worst hurricane to have hit Texas- ever [And yes- maybe the U.S.]
Many of the locals remember Celia  and yes- it was bad. But the prediction as of today- is Harvey will linger a few more days just north of us [Corpus]- And possibly work its way back south- and back into the gulf. Meaning- it might retrace its earlier path- over the cities that have already been devastated.
As I read the last verse of the prophet- in the above chapter- It simply made me think of what the meteorologists have predicted- for I will bring more [upon Dimon, lions upon him that escapeth of Moab,] and upon the remnant of the land.
Sunday night - https://youtu.be/JI1K8KLvlC0 https://ccoutreach87.com/8-27-17-sunday-night/ .History of preachers denying the judgment of God .Azuz street .Frank Bartleman .The flood .Prophets in the Old Testament- and now .God’s evident actions in history .Sheriff doing hurricane coverage gets mad- rightfully .The other commentator wanted to talk football .If we warn people of a future Judgment to come- how can we deny it when it happens in our lifetime?
Monday morning - https://youtu.be/AmMeuQYNCL8 https://ccoutreach87.com/8-28-17-monday-morning/ This morning I read psalm 60- The psalm acknowledges God- and his judgments in the earth- Psalm 60:1 O God, thou hast cast us off, thou hast scattered us, thou hast been displeased; O turn thyself to us again. He sees God as the ultimate source- no thing- not even the shaking of the earth- is outside of his action- Psalm 60:2 Thou hast made the earth to tremble; thou hast broken it: heal the breaches thereof; for it shaketh. Yet- it is in this acknowledgment that healing can come. Most preachers say ‘repent- and believe in Jesus’ which of course is true. Yet- when see corporate sin- the sin of a society- nation- and the after effects- we rarely allow for the true repentance needed for healing. Because we usually respond to these earth shaking actions by saying ‘we will pray for you and help you- there is no way God did this- no- the devil shook the earth’. Yet- the scripture says different. True healing- forgiveness comes when people recognize their sin- their wrong. On the video I talked about how many Christians and preachers in the Western world actually favor ‘shock and awe’- A term coined by Donald Rumsfeld when we invaded Iraq. The fear- death and utter terror associated with this tactic- was- and is still seen as a great thing by many in the West. Many see the actual ‘kinetic action’ as good- just- and right. But many of these same people can not even fathom how a just God- could also do the same- to us. To many of you- this is a hard saying- tough to receive- Psalm 60:3 Thou hast shewed thy people hard things: thou hast made us to drink the wine of astonishment. God wants us to speak what is true- he does not simply give a forum to preachers so they can be honored for their speaking gift- No- he gives a forum- a banner- for the purpose of declaring what is true- Psalm 60:4 Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah. When we say ‘God did this- God shook us’ then yes- he will come and help- he will save- he will defeat our enemies- but first we must say ‘thou hast done this’- Psalm 60:10 Wilt not thou, O God, which hadst cast us off? and thou, O God, which didst not go out with our armies? Psalm 60:11 Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man. Psalm 60:12 Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall tread down our enemies.

1 John 3:2a Beloved, now are we the sons of God,
4 Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. 2 And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred. 3 And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. 4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God. 5 Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, 6 And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. 7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. 8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; 9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. 10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. 11 Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him. Exodus 19:6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel. In Context | Full Chapter | Other Translations
11 Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; 12 That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: 13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.

Isaiah 14:2 And the people shall take them, and bring them to their place: and the house of Israel shall possess them in the land of the LORD for servants and handmaids: and they shall take them captives, whose captives they were; and they shall rule over their oppressors. Isaiah 14:3 And it shall come to pass in the day that the LORD shall give thee rest from thy sorrow, and from thy fear, and from the hard bondage wherein thou wast made to serve, Isaiah 14:4 That thou shalt take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, and say, How hath the oppressor ceased! the golden city ceased! Isaiah 14:5 The LORD hath broken the staff of the wicked, and the sceptre of the rulers. Isaiah 14:6 He who smote the people in wrath with a continual stroke, he that ruled the nations in anger, is persecuted, and none hindereth.

Isaiah 14:10 All they shall speak and say unto thee, Art thou also become weak as we? art thou become like unto us? Isaiah 14:11 Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee. Isaiah 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! Isaiah 14:13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: Isaiah 14:14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Isaiah 14:15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit. Isaiah 14:16 They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms; Isaiah 14:17 That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners? Isaiah 14:18 All the kings of the nations, even all of them, lie in glory, every one in his own house. Isaiah 14:19 But thou art cast out of thy grave like an abominable branch, and as the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to the stones of the pit; as a carcase trodden under feet. Isaiah 14:20 Thou shalt not be joined with them in burial, because thou hast destroyed thy land, and slain thy people: the seed of evildoers shall never be renowned. Isaiah 14:21 Prepare slaughter for his children for the iniquity of their fathers; that they do not rise, nor possess the land, nor fill the face of the world with cities.

Because in the night Ar of Moab is laid waste, and brought to silence; because in the night Kir of Moab is laid waste, and brought to silence; Isaiah 15:2 He is gone up to Bajith, and to Dibon, the high places, to weep: Moab shall howl over Nebo, and over Medeba: on all their heads shall be baldness, and every beard cut off. Isaiah 15:3 In their streets they shall gird themselves with sackcloth: on the tops of their houses, and in their streets, every one shall howl, weeping abundantly. Isaiah 15:4 And Heshbon shall cry, and Elealeh: their voice shall be heard even unto Jahaz: therefore the armed soldiers of Moab shall cry out; his life shall be grievous unto him. Isaiah 15:5 My heart shall cry out for Moab; his fugitives shall flee unto Zoar, an heifer of three years old: for by the mounting up of Luhith with weeping shall they go it up; for in the way of Horonaim they shall raise up a cry of destruction. Isaiah 15:6 For the waters of Nimrim shall be desolate: for the hay is withered away, the grass faileth, there is no green thing. Isaiah 15:7 Therefore the abundance they have gotten, and that which they have laid up, shall they carry away to the brook of the willows. Isaiah 15:8 For the cry is gone round about the borders of Moab; the howling thereof unto Eglaim, and the howling thereof unto Beerelim. Isaiah 15:9 For the waters of Dimon shall be full of blood: for I will bring more upon Dimon, lions upon him that escapeth of Moab, and upon the remnant of the land. Psalm 60:1 O God, thou hast cast us off, thou hast scattered us, thou hast been displeased; O turn thyself to us again. Psalm 60:2 Thou hast made the earth to tremble; thou hast broken it: heal the breaches thereof; for it shaketh. Psalm 60:3 Thou hast shewed thy people hard things: thou hast made us to drink the wine of astonishment. Psalm 60:4 Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah. Psalm 60:5 That thy beloved may be delivered; save with thy right hand, and hear me. Psalm 60:6 God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth. Psalm 60:7 Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the strength of mine head; Judah is my lawgiver; Psalm 60:8 Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe: Philistia, triumph thou because of me. Psalm 60:9 Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me into Edom? Psalm 60:10 Wilt not thou, O God, which hadst cast us off? and thou, O God, which didst not go out with our armies? Psalm 60:11 Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man. Psalm 60:12 Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall tread down our enemies. James 5:1 Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you. James 5:2 Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten. James 5:3 Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days. James 5:4 Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth. James 5:5 Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter. James 5:6 Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you. James 5:7 Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain. James 5:8 Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh. James 5:9 Grudge not one against another, brethren, lest ye be condemned: behold, the judge standeth before the door. James 5:10 Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience. James 5:11 Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy. James 5:12 But above all things, my brethren, swear not, neither by heaven, neither by the earth, neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea; and your nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation. James 5:13 Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms. James 5:14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: James 5:15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. James 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. James 5:17 Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. James 5:18 And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit. James 5:19 Brethren, if any of you do err from the truth, and one convert him; James 5:20 Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins. Isaiah 53:1 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed? Isaiah 53:2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. Isaiah 53:3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Isaiah 53:4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. Isaiah 53:5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. Isaiah 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. Isaiah 53:7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. Isaiah 53:8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken. Isaiah 53:9 And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth. Isaiah 53:10 Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand. Isaiah 53:11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities. Isaiah 53:12 Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

And the Lord rained hail upon the land of Egypt. There was hail and fire flashing continually in the midst of the hail, very heavy hail, such as had never been in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation.

The book of the vision of Nahum of Elkosh. The Lord is a jealous and avenging God; the Lord is avenging and wrathful; the Lord takes vengeance on his adversaries and keeps wrath for his enemies. The Lord is slow to anger and great in power, and the Lord will by no means clear the guilty. His way is in whirlwind and storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet. He rebukes the sea and makes it dry; he dries up all the rivers; Bashan and Carmel wither; the bloom of Lebanon withers. The mountains quake before him; the hills melt; the earth heaves before him, the world and all who dwell in it. … Amos 8:1-9:15 ESV / 8 helpful votes Helpful Not Helpful This is what the Lord God showed me: behold, a basket of summer fruit.

Let not the archer bend his bow, and let him not stand up in his armor. Spare not her young men; devote to destruction all her army.

Who stirred up one from the east whom victory meets at every step? He gives up nations before him, so that he tramples kings underfoot; he makes them like dust with his sword, like driven stubble with his bow. He pursues them and passes on safely, by paths his feet have not trod. Who has performed and done this, calling the generations from the beginning? I, the Lord, the first, and with the last; I am he.

Perhaps we may find grass and save the horses and mules alive, and not lose some of the animals.” … 1 Samuel 2:6 ESV / 8 helpful votes The Lord kills and brings to life; he brings down to Sheol and raises up. Hosea 4:3 ESV / 7 helpful votes Helpful Not Helpful Therefore the land mourns, and all who dwell in it languish, and also the beasts of the field and the birds of the heavens, and even the fish of the sea are taken away. Joshua 10:11-14 ESV / 7 helpful votes And as they fled before Israel, while they were going down the ascent of Beth-horon, the Lord threw down large stones from heaven on them as far as Azekah, and they died. There were more who died because of the hailstones than the sons of Israel killed with the sword. At that time Joshua spoke to the Lord in the day when the Lord gave the Amorites over to the sons of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, “Sun, stand still at Gibeon, and moon, in the Valley of Aijalon.” And the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, until the nation took vengeance on their enemies. Is this not written in the Book of Jashar? The sun stopped in the midst of heaven and did not hurry to set for about a whole day. There has been no day like it before or since, when the Lord heeded the voice of a man, for the Lord fought for Israel. Deuteronomy 32:1-52 ESV / 7 helpful votes Helpful Not Helpful “Give ear, O heavens, and I will speak, and let the earth hear the words of my mouth.

They have dealt corruptly with him; they are no longer his children because they are blemished; they are a crooked and twisted generation. … Psalm 7:11 ESV / 6 helpful votes Helpful Not Helpful God is a righteous judge, and a God who feels indignation every day. Romans 8:28-39 ESV / 5 helpful votes And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose. For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified. What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? … Zechariah 9:14 ESV / 5 helpful votes Then the Lord will appear over them, and his arrow will go forth like lightning; the Lord God will sound the trumpet and will march forth in the whirlwinds of the south.

She went with her household and sojourned in the land of the Philistines seven years. And at the end of the seven years, when the woman returned from the land of the Philistines, she went to appeal to the king for her house and her land. Now the king was talking with Gehazi the servant of the man of God, saying, “Tell me all the great things that Elisha has done.” And while he was telling the king how Elisha had restored the dead to life, behold, the woman whose son he had restored to life appealed to the king for her house and her land. And Gehazi said, “My lord, O king, here is the woman, and here is her son whom Elisha restored to life.” … Deuteronomy 29:22-25 ESV / 5 helpful votes Helpful Not Helpful And the next generation, your children who rise up after you, and the foreigner who comes from a far land, will say, when they see the afflictions of that land and the sicknesses with which the Lord has made it sick— the whole land burned out with brimstone and salt, nothing sown and nothing growing, where no plant can sprout, an overthrow like that of Sodom and Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboiim, which the Lord overthrew in his anger and wrath— all the nations will say, ‘Why has the Lord done thus to this land? What caused the heat of this great anger?’ Then people will say, ‘It is because they abandoned the covenant of the Lord, the God of their fathers, which he made with them when he brought them out of the land of Egypt, Exodus 9:22-26 ESV / 5 helpful votes Helpful Not Helpful Then the Lord said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand toward heaven, so that there may be hail in all the land of Egypt, on man and beast and every plant of the field, in the land of Egypt.” Then Moses stretched out his staff toward heaven, and the Lord sent thunder and hail, and fire ran down to the earth.

There was hail and fire flashing continually in the midst of the hail, very heavy hail, such as had never been in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation. The hail struck down everything that was in the field in all the land of Egypt, both man and beast. And the hail struck down every plant of the field and broke every tree of the field.

These are the verses from the Sunday Mass- which I talked about on the videos- August 27, 2017 « August 26 | August 28 » Twenty-first Sunday in Ordinary Time Lectionary: 121 Reading 1IS 22:19-23 Thus says the LORD to Shebna, master of the palace: “I will thrust you from your office and pull you down from your station.

He shall be a father to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and to the house of Judah.
