Everything in the world is in agitation. The signs of the times are ominous. Coming events cast their shadows before. The Spirit of God is withdrawing from the earth, and calamity follows calamity by sea and by land. There are tempests, earthquakes, fires, floods, murders of every grade. Who can read the future? Where is security? There is assurance in nothing that is human or earthly. Rapidly are men ranging themselves under the banner they have chosen. Restlessly are they waiting and watching the movements of their leaders. There are those who are waiting and watching and working for our Lord’s appearing. Another class are falling into line under the generalship of the first great apostate. Few believe with heart and soul that we have a hell to shun and a heaven to win.

The crisis is stealing gradually upon us. The sun shines in the heavens, passing over its usual round, and the heavens still declare the glory of God. Men are still eating and drinking, planting and building, marrying, and giving in marriage. Merchants are still buying and selling. Men are jostling one against another, contending for the highest place. Pleasure lovers are still crowding to theaters, horse races, gambling hells. The highest excitement prevails, yet probation’s hour is fast closing, and every case is about to be eternally decided. Satan sees that his time is short. He has set all his agencies at work that men may be deceived, deluded, occupied and entranced, until the day of probation shall be ended, and the door of mercy be forever shut.

Solemnly there come to us down through the centuries the warning words of our Lord from the Mount of Olives: “Take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come upon you unawares.” “Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.”  DA 636.
Jesus receives His reward when we reflect His character, the fruits of the Spirit......We deny Jesus His reward when we do not.

HURRICAN IRMA LEAVES SCIENTISTS AT "A LOSS OF WORDS"

[Excerpts]

The size of the storm left hurricane and weather scientists speechless. "I am at a complete and utter loss for words looking at Irma's appearance on satellite imagery", wrote Traylor Trogdon, a scientist at the U.S. National Hurricane Center...

Its so strong that it is even showing up on scales for measuring earthquakes.

My religious belief teaches me to feel as safe in battle as in bed. God has fixed the time for my death. I do not concern myself about that, but to be always ready, no matter when it may overtake me....That is the way all men should live, and then all would be equally brave."
— Stonewall Jackson

This is amazing! But, we ought not be surprised. While Texas is still suffering from Harvey, here we have two more hurricanes headed our way. Irma is packing winds up to 200mph and has hit islands in the Caribbean. Florida is evacuating low lying ground and expecting the worst. Like Harvey, this is a "catastrophic" event.

Do we expect this to be the end of the disasters we are seeing world-wide? We hear of wars and rumors of wars. Do we know the signs of the times? Are we prepared to meet our Maker?

 Family in Puerto Rico and family in N Carolina. Looks like both will have some interesting  weather.
