Jonah 1:4

But the LORD sent out a great wind into the sea, and there was a mighty tempest in the sea

Commentary

Hurricane Sandy Bearing Down on the US Coast.

Many people have contacted me about this hurricane and what might be the spiritual root.

At this point, I have no idea, and we are going to have to let it play out to see what is happening.

Right now, Hurricane Sandy is projected to hit Washington, DC and then come directly over my house! I live in central Pennsylvania and the storm is scheduled to hit here Wednesday.

Hurricane Sandy is being compared to the Perfect Storm of October 1991. Sandy is projected to hit on October 30, which was the same day as the Perfect Storm 21 years ago.

The first Perfect Storm hit when President Bush Sr. initiated the Madrid Peace Process to divide Israel. It is very possible that this storm may hit with some event connected to Israel. We will just have to wait.

The Perfect Storm of October 30, 1991

The following is an excerpt from my book  As America Has Done to Israel. I updated the book which now is available. I just received the updated books from my publisher.

October 30, 1991

“After the Gulf War ended in 1991, President George H. W. Bush began the initiative to start a Middle East Peace plan involving Israel, the Palestinians, and countries surrounding Israel.  The talks began on October 30, 1991, in Madrid, Spain.  On October 30, 1991, President Bush opened the talks with a speech.  In this speech, the President said, “territorial compromise is essential for peace.”

From the very start of the Madrid Peace Process, the President made it very clear that Israel was required to surrender parts of the covenant land for peace.  This surrender was the foundation of this peace process.  The following excerpt of the President’s speech shows this:

“Throughout the Middle East, we seek a stable and enduring settlement. We’ve not defined what this means. Indeed, I make these points with no map showing where the final borders are to be drawn. Nevertheless we believe territorial compromise is essential for peace.” (See centerfold for a picture of President Bush speaking at the Madrid Peace Conference.)

In their opening speeches, the Egyptian, Syrian and Palestinian delegations said that for peace Israel must surrender land.  At the very beginning of these talks, the land of Israel was the key issue.  The Egyptian Foreign Minister, Amr Moussa summarized the Arab position regarding the land of Israel.  He listed and addressed four points and three dealt with the land of Israel.  Jerusalem became the very heart of this conference.  An excerpt of Mr. Moussa’s speech follows:

“Secondly, the West Bank, Gaza and the Golan Heights are occupied territories.

Thirdly, settlements established in territories occupied since 67, including Jerusalem are illegal, and more settlements will foreclose potential progress toward real peace and cast doubts on the credibility of the process itself.

Fourthly, the holy city of Jerusalem has its special status…The occupying power should not exercise monopoly or illegal sovereignty over the holy city. It should not persist in unilateral decisions declared to annex the holy city as this lacks validity or legitimacy.”

On October 30, a powerful storm developed off Nova Scotia.  The storm caught the National Weather Bureau completely by surprise.  It just suddenly developed from unusual weather patterns and unleashed tremendous power.  These weather patterns occur once every 100 years.  The National Weather Service never officially named this storm although it did reach hurricane strength.

This storm was extremely rare, because it traveled for 1,000 miles in an eastward to westward direction.  This was the wrong direction because the weather pattern for the United States is westward to eastward!  Meteorologists called this storm extra – tropical because it did not originate in the tropics, as do most hurricanes.

On October 31, this ferocious storm smashed into New England.  It was a monster hundreds of miles wide.  The National Weather Service later nicknamed this hurricane, “The Perfect Storm.”  Sebastian Junger wrote a best selling book about this storm, and even a motion picture was made capturing the drama of ships caught in it.  The Perfect Storm was the title of both the book and movie.

Meteorologists described The Perfect Storm as one of the most powerful to ever occur!  It created ocean waves over 100 feet high which were among the highest ever recorded.  The Perfect Storm traveled down the East Coast into the Carolinas doing millions of dollars in damage.  The storm damaged the entire East Coast from Maine to Florida.  Remember, this storm was going the wrong way!  The Perfect Storm caused damage which classified it among powerful hurricanes.

President Bush owns a home along the East Coast in Kennebunkport, Maine.  The Perfect Storm heavily damaged President Bush’s home.  Eyewitnesses said that waves as high as 30 feet rose from the ocean and smashed into the President’s sea front home.  When the President returned from Madrid, he canceled speaking engagements to inspect the damage done to his home. (See centerfold for a picture of President Bush’s home in Kennebunkport.)

This storm hit the President’s home the same day he initiated the Madrid Peace Conference.  What awesome timing for this to happen!  An extremely rare and powerful storm developed in the North Atlantic Ocean and went 1000 miles the wrong way.  The storm then struck the President’s own home, the very day he was opening the Madrid Peace Conference.  The President’s land was touched the very day he attempted to touch the covenant land of Israel!

The front page headlines of the USA Today newspaper on November 1, even had the Madrid conference and The Perfect Storm next to each other!  The newspaper titled one article, “One-on-one peace talks next.”  The article touching it was titled, “East Coast hit hard by rare storm.”

At the very beginning of a peace plan involving Israel, a rare and powerful storm, smashed into the entire East Coast of the United States.  On October 30, 1991, the Lord God of Israel put America on notice.”

Revelation 22:20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
