Hurricane Irma Update 2017
Hurricane Irma has already made landfall in Florida and by 2000 hours will pummel the Tampa Bay area with sustained hurricane force winds, torrential rain, tornadoes (here and there), wide-spread flooding, and wide-spread power outages. The eye-wall itself will pass by not too far from our home. I expect HBS will be “out-of-service” for some time because of this tropical event. It could be days, weeks, or months before power is restored to all the affected areas. While HBS is down, unable to communicate, please take advantage of the many Bible lessons in the archives, just waiting to be explored by y’all.
Please pray for all those who have lost loved ones in the path of Irma and those who have lost their homes, their businesses, or their way of life. Please pray for those who are in the path of hurricane Irma and will be feeling the effects shortly. Pray they do not give in to fear but instead know: He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty (Psalm 91:1a).
Some naysayers have recently appeared on the scene with comment such as, “Where is God? Why would God permit weather events like Harvey and Irma?” Please know life’s ups and downs, i.e. weather events, do not nullify the promises of God Romans (8:37-39; 2 Corinthians 1:20; Philippians 4:19). Learn to recognize these individuals for who they truly are (false teachers) and be true to God and His Word always.
