What do Guatemala and the USA have in common?
Israeli Embassies in Jerusalem.
The destructive force of volcanic eruption.
Hawaii and Guatemala have, in the last couple of weeks, experienced the eruptions of local volcanoes. These have come shortly after the relocation of their respective Israeli embassies in Jerusalem. No other earthquakes have been reported, and no other countries have opened embassies in Jerusalem, so far.
What does this mean?
A friend recently said she’d heard of a teaching that states a volcanic eruption means hell is expanding. Well, when the enemy is active, it suggests it is feeling threatened.
It would seem hell is angry with these two nations who have come alongside Jerusalem. And so it is threatening, looming large, expanding its territory.
How can we respond?
I am led to pray 1 Chronicles 4:10, the prayer of Jabez:
“And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.”
Do Not Fear
So, should be stop moving embassies to Jerusalem to avoid volcanoes?
No. We should not give into the enemy. Instead, let’s know that the enemy doesn’t like embassies in Jerusalem, and therefore we must place more of them there.
As against the wishes of the terrorists, we must not give in to fear of the enemy.
“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom” (Psalm 111:10)
As we ask protection from the Creator and Father, we may or may not stop natural disasters, but we can be sure GOD’s “will is done on earth as in heaven”. And that is always a good and righteous thing.
