God disclaims responsibility for abnormal weather

 

June 1994 - A trip to the mountains occasioned the sight of a miracle.  After the climb, we came to a more flat stretch of road.  Up ahead, a rainbow ended right in our path.  As we passed through it, every color passed through the car.  I watched in amazement as each color glistened almost unnaturally as the rainbow passed over me and my seat.  I knew this event was against the laws of nature.  I took it to be a sign of the assurance of Godís presence.  Mom got excited and wanted to immediately go and buy lottery tickets.

 

In the context of an abnormally rainy season, a precursor of more peculiar weather to come, God seemed to be referring to the promise represented by the rainbow:

 

And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:  And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. (Gen 9:14-15)

 

Later in the summer, Dad gave me a hand delivered card from what source I do not know.  It depicted a farmer drenched with rain, saying, ďGet well soon!Ē  I was not amused to be Nortelís scapegoat.

 

In the larger context, I do not believe God is responsible for any of abnormal weather or disasters of this age.  Rather it is a manifestation of other evil characteristic of these times (Not that God is evil at all).  As for Godís denial, he communicated it with a concrete miracle seen by at least three people.
