California is burning. So is New Mexico. Strong, destructive storms continue in the center of the US as Oklahoma City is hit again. We know this is a sign of the times. May God comfort His people on this holy Sabbath day.

Amen!  Satan is wreaking destruction, but God is in control!  source  source

The Most Deadly 100 Natural Disasters of the 20th Century  http://www.disastercenter.com/disaster/TOP100K.html

Satan works through the elements also to garner his harvest of unprepared souls. He has studied the secrets of the laboratories of nature, and he uses all his power to control the elements as far as God allows. When he was suffered to afflict Job, how quickly flocks and herds, servants, houses, children, were swept away, one trouble succeeding another as in a moment. It is God that shields His creatures and hedges them in from the power of the destroyer. But the Christian world have shown contempt for the law of Jehovah, and the Lord will do just what He has declared that He would--He will withdraw His blessings from the earth and remove His protecting care from those who are rebelling against His law and teaching and forcing others to do the same. Satan has control of all whom God does not especially guard. He will favor and prosper some, in order to further his own designs; and he will bring trouble upon others and lead men to believe that it is God who is afflicting them.  {CH 460.2} 

     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.  {CH 461.1}

   That is quite a list and yet it surely will pail compared to what is coming. The following may not resonate with most because it only involved animals but is out of the norm. Thousands of cattle died last month in the blizzard in South Dakota that brought over 23 inches of snow in OCTOBER.
It's easier to slow a fast horse down than to get a dead one going.

...and the flooding that occurred in the front range mountains, foot hills and into the plains of Colorado not too long ago. A lot of damage done was not reported by news sources. From what I understand, as far as records kept by the National Weather Service, this flood was the largest, most damaging and most expensive on record in Colorado. The road at the mouth of the canyon from Loveland to Estes Park was 80% damaged. Some sections of the road were 30 feet above the river, and were completely wiped away because the flood waters rose so high. Many live and travel in those canyons. Amazingly, the loss of life was low. I think God saved many people. I believe it also shows that what many think in this world as impossible... is now possible. God is trying to get people's attention.

Yes, dear brother, we are nearing the end. It is good that many can see it. Welcome to our fellowship, dear friend! Good to have your thoughts.

Amen and welcome Jefferson. The good news is that God will help us as He brings about an end to the great controversy. It is a promise of comfort through the darkest hours on earth. He will see us through.

In case those in California are feeling left out you have some sypmathizers in Brazil.

Brazil's largest city could run dry in less than 100 days if the city's government doesn't act, Brazil's Public Ministry said.

São Paulo, a city of more than 9 million people, is facing one of its worst water shortages in years, brought on by the worst drought to hit São Paulo state in 84 years, the Associated Press reports.

The Cantareira watershed, which supplies 45 percent of the São Paulo metro's population with water, is less than 100 days from running dry, the Wall Street Journal reports.

Interesting, the front that is at this time sweeping the entire United states from east to west. It spans from New Mexico on the west all the way through Maine on the east. 11 or more dead from tornados in the south and large amounts of snow being dumped as the front slowly moves north.
