Gambling casinos took a hit on the coast as this is where the eye of the storm hit.
And as America forced Israelis out of parts of their land, hurricane Katrina was building in the Atlantic. A Fox reporter said, "It must be an emotional experience (for Americans) to walk away from their homes and not ever live in them again." Same with those forced out in Israel. Israeli homes are being demolished as Gulf Coast homes are demolished.
This was America's greatest "evacuation." Now we have "refugees". Israelis were evacuated and many are refugees living in tents and refugee centers, thanks to America. The Israeli uprooting will affect their entire economy in that some of their finest produce which was exported is now left behind. America's economy could face a steep recession as oil processing refineries were damaged. Plan to see price increases within days. Will this bring our economy down? Major industries will be affected from food delivery, jet fuel, travel, insurance, and so much more with the "ripple effect" of skyrocketing gas prices.
Luke 21 talks about "the sea and the waves roaring" and "men's hearts failing them for fear." We must not stop there. It goes on to say, "When these things begin to happen, look up and know your redemption draws nigh.
Let us continue to pray for the "homeless" both in America and Israel. Millions have had their lives torn apart and our greatest contribution to them, other than physical needs, is prayer.
A couple of years ago, Pat Robertson tracked and documented a phenomenal thing. Everytime Isreal reliquished part of its land for "peace" with America's help or refusal to stop it, a major weather disaster hit our nation sometimes almost within days. The week before Katrina, Isreal forcibly removed over 10,000 Jews from their land and gave it to the Palestinians. America stood by. Now... we reap...again.
HE IS COMING. ARE YOU READY?
