The BP Oil Spill and Prophecy

“God has a storehouse of retributive judgments, which He permits to fall upon those who have continued in sin in the face of great light. I have seen the most costly structures in buildings erected and supposed to be fireproof. And just as Sodom perished in the flames of God’s vengeance, so will these proud structures become ashes. I have seen vessels which cost immense sums of money wrestling with the mighty waters, seeking to breast the angry billows. But with all their treasures of gold and silver, and with their human freight they sink into a watery grave. Man’s pride will be buried with the treasures he has accumulated by fraud. God will avenge the widows and orphans who in hunger and nakedness have cried to Him for help from oppression and abuse.  {3SM 418.3} 

                                                                                                                                                 The time is right upon us when there will be sorrow in the world that no human balm can heal. The flattering monuments of men’s greatness will be crumbled in he dust, even before the last great destruction comes upon the world. . . .     Only by being clothed with the robe of Christ’s righteousness can we escape the judgments that are coming upon the earth.–Letter 20, 1901.  {3SM 419.1}


                                                                                                                                            “What mean the awful calamities by sea–vessels hurled into eternity without a moment’s warning?

 What mean the accidents by land--fire consuming the riches that men have hoarded, much of which has been accumulated by oppression of the poor? The Lord will not interfere to protect the property of those who transgress His law, break His covenant, and trample upon His Sabbath, accepting in its place a spurious rest day.  {LDE 27.4} 

 The plagues of God are already falling upon the earth, sweeping away the most costly structures as if by a breath of fire from heaven. Will not these judgments bring professing Christians to their senses? God permits them to come that the world may take heed, that sinners may be afraid and tremble before Him.–3MR 311 (1902).  {LDE 28.1} 

                                          God has a purpose in permitting these calamities to occur. They are one of His means of calling men and women to their senses. By unusual workings through nature God will express to doubting human agencies that which He clearly reveals in His Word.–19MR 279 (1902).  {LDE 28.2} 

     “How frequently we hear of earthquakes and tornadoes, of destruction by fire and flood, with great loss of life and property! Apparently these calamities are capricious outbreaks of disorganized, unregulated forces of nature, wholly beyond the control of man, but in them all God’s purpose may be read. They are among the agencies by which He seeks to arouse men and women to a sense of their danger.–PK 277 (c. 1914).  {LDE 28.3}

    This is yet another wake up call to life as we know it. He has forewarned us all and has been ignored.
