Questioner

A lot of people are saying that God sent the hurricane to destroy New Orleans because of the United States allowing Israel to give the Gaza strip to the Palestinians.


Answer

Not true, for God has turned away from Israel during the Church Age, and His blessing is not on her. God will preserve Israel during this age, but the land mass is not an issue until the Millennial Kingdom

Questioner

Some are saying that the United States is wicked and God sent the hurricane to punish us. Is this true?

Answer

Yes, we are a very wicked nation (abortion, homosexuality, murder, rape, pornography, sexual perversion and immorality). Katrina is only one of the "little" judgments God is pouring out on America and other nations for their rebellion against Him and His truth. God has been doing this since the fall of Adam and Eve. The Bible says God pours out His wrath every day:

John 3:36, "Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for Gods wrath remains on him.

Rom. 1:18, "The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness."
