Hurricane Update

Tropical Storm “Sally” strengthening, hurricane and storm surge warnings issued for portions of the U.S. Gulf Coast. 18th (6+6+6) named storm in the Atlantic. Three (3) Marco, Laura and now Sally…all in the space of about 30 (3) days.

Foreshadow Now, ‘Season of the End Times’:

Blog note. Jesus indicated that ‘fearful sights’ (various natural disasters) would occur leading up to the time known as the Tribulation and Great Tribulation (a combined seven year period of great destruction on earth). Although these types of things have occurred in the past for centuries and thousands of years, they could be identified as the ‘season of the times’ due to the ferociousness of these events. They would be occurring in greater intensity, severity, frequency, size, duration, scope … just like the pains that a woman experiences in labor the farther along she is in the labor process. We are in the ‘season of the times’ that comes just before the seven (7) year Tribulation/Great Tribulation period

… And great earthquakes shall be in diverse places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. (Luke 21:11).


… And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; (Luke 21:25)


… Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken; (Luke 21:26)


… This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. (2 Timothy 3:1)

Jesus is giving a series of prophecies about what to look for as the age of grace comes to a close. These verses are several of many such prophecies from throughout the Bible. 2017 was the worst year in recorded history for the intensity, frequency, severity, duration and occurrence of a large number of severe natural disasters worldwide. Earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, typhoons, cyclones, torrential flooding, unprecedented wildfires in unusual places, devastating droughts, excessive/scorching heat setting records everywhere, record snowfalls in Europe and Russia. Snow in the Arabia. This list can go on. Most studied Eschatologists believe these ‘fearful sights’ and massive natural disasters are all part of the ‘CONVERGENCE’ of signs that this Biblical and prophetic age is closing. Most people who study prophecy are familiar with the routine reference(s) made that these things will be like a woman having labor.

Future, during the seven (7) year tribulation;

Revelation 6:7-8 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. 8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

(‘fourth part’ = 25% = *7.7 billion x .25 = 1.93 billion people) *estimated earth population as of March 2020.

Past Five (5) Days, ‘Increasing, Like Birth Pains, Fearful Earthquakes, Volcanoes and Hurricanes’ in ‘Diverse Places’;

Tropical Storm “Sally” strengthening, hurricane and storm surge warnings issued for portions of the U.S. Gulf Coast. 18th (6+6+6) named storm in the Atlantic. Three (3) Marco, Laura and now Sally…all in the space of about 30 (3) days.

Tropical Storm “Sally” formed at 18:00 UTC on September 12, 2020, as the earliest 18th named Atlantic storm, beating the previous record set by Stan on September 22, 2005. At the time it formed, Sally’s center was located about 60 km (35 miles) SSE of Naples, Florida.

Before it was officially named, Sally was known as Tropical Depression 19 — TD19 made landfall at 06:00 UTC on September 12 just south of Miami, Florida with winds of 55 km/h (35 mph) and a pressure of 1 007 hPa.

Life-threatening storm surge is possible along the Gulf Coast beginning on Monday, and a Storm Surge Watch is in effect for areas outside the southeastern Louisiana Hurricane and Storm Damage Risk Reduction System from the Mouth of the Mississippi River to the Alabama/Florida border. Residents in these areas should follow any advice given by local officials. 

Hurricane conditions are possible by early Tuesday from Grand Isle, Louisiana to the Alabama/Florida border, including Metropolitan New Orleans, with tropical storm conditions possible by Monday.

Sally is expected to produce flash flooding across portions of southern Florida and prolong existing minor river flooding across central Florida through Sunday. Flash and urban flooding and minor to moderate river flooding are likely across portions of the central Gulf Coast from Sunday through the middle of next week.

Tropical storm conditions are possible early next week in portions of the Florida Panhandle, where a Tropical Storm Watch is in effect.  Wind gusts to tropical storm force could occur over portions of the lower Florida Keys overnight.

At 06:00 UTC on September 13 (02:00 EDT), the center of Tropical Storm “Sally” was located about 130 km (80 miles) WSW of Port Charlotte, Florida, and 620 km (385 miles) ESE of the Mouth of the Mississippi River. 

The storm had maximum sustained winds of 75 km/h (45 mph) and minimum central pressure of 1 003 hPa. It was moving WNW at 13 km/h (8 mph).

Further strengthening is expected over the next couple of days, and Sally is forecast to become a hurricane on Monday, with some additional strengthening possible through early Tuesday.

A Storm Surge Watch is in effect for the Mouth of the Mississippi River to the Alabama/Florida Border, Lake Pontchartrain, Lake Maurepas, and Lake Borgne, Mobile Bay.

A Hurricane Watch is in effect for Grand Isle Louisiana to the Alabama/Florida border, Lake Pontchartrain, and Lake Maurepas including metropolitan New Orleans.

A Tropical Storm Watch is in effect for Alabama/Florida Border to Ochlockonee River Florida.

On the NHC forecast track, the center of Sally will move over the southeastern and eastern Gulf of Mexico today, September 13, move over the north-central Gulf of Mexico Sunday night and Monday, September 14 and approach the north-central Gulf Coast within the hurricane watch area late Monday and Tuesday.

“Given the current structure, only gradual strengthening is expected in the short term. However, once the cyclone develops more of an inner core, it should be able to take advantage of warm sea surface temperatures and low shear over the Gulf of Mexico during the next couple of days,” NHC forecaster Brennan noted at 03:00 UTC on September 13.

“Steady intensification to hurricane strength is forecast through 48 hours, with a leveling off of the intensity in 60 – 72 hours as the shear is expected to increase.”

“Users are reminded to not focus on the exact details of the track or intensity forecasts, as the average NHC track error at 72 h is around 177 km (110 miles) and the average intensity error is around 24 km/h (15 mph). In addition, wind, storm surge, and rainfall hazards will extend far from the center. Unfortunately, confidence is increasing that Sally’s expected slow forward speed near the Gulf Coast will exacerbate the storm surge and heavy rainfall threats.”

The combination of a dangerous storm surge and the tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising waters moving inland from the shoreline, NHC forecasters warned.

The water could reach the following heights above ground somewhere in the indicated areas if the peak surge occurs at the time of high tide:

Mouth of the Mississippi River to Ocean Springs, MS, including Lake Borgne: 1.8 – 2.7 m (6 – 9 feet).

Ocean Springs, MS to MS/AL Border: 1.2 – 1.8 m (4 – 6 feet).

MS/AL Border to AL/FL Border, including Mobile Bay: 0.6 – 1.8 m (2 – 4 feet).

Lake Pontchartrain and Lake Maurepas: 0.6 – 1.8 m (2 – 4 feet).

AL/FL Border to Chassahowitzka, FL, including Pensacola Bay, Choctawhatchee Bay, and Saint Andrew Bay: 0.3 – 0.9 m (1 – 3 feet).

The deepest water will occur along the immediate coast near and to the right of the landfall location, where the surge will be accompanied by large and damaging waves. Surge-related flooding depends on the relative timing of the surge and the tidal cycle, and can vary greatly over short distances.

Hurricane conditions are possible within the hurricane watch area by early Tuesday, with tropical storm conditions possible within the watch areas by Monday. Wind gusts to tropical storm force are possible across the lower Florida Keys overnight.

Sally is expected to produce additional rainfall amounts of 50 – 100 mm (2 to 4 inches) with locally higher amounts possible over southern Florida and the Florida Keys through today. Rainfall amounts of 50 – 100 mm (2 to 4 inches) with isolated amounts of 150 mm (6 inches) are expected along the west coast of Florida through today. This rainfall will produce flash and urban flooding across southern Florida and prolong high flows and ongoing minor flooding on rivers across central Florida. Sally is expected to produce rainfall amounts of 125 – 250 mm (5 to 10 inches) across the Florida Panhandle, and 150 – 300 mm (6 to 12 inches) with isolated amounts of 460 mm (18 inches) over the Central Gulf Coast from Sunday into the middle of next week, with 75 – 150 mm (3 to 6 inches) rainfall amounts possible over inland portions of Mississippi and Alabama. 

Sally is expected to be a slow-moving system that will continue to produce heavy rainfall and considerable flooding near the central Gulf Coast through the middle of next week.  Flash, urban, and rapid onset flooding along small streams and minor to moderate flooding on rivers are likely.

Swells will spread northward along the west-central coast of Florida and reach the Florida Panhandle and the northern Gulf Coast during the next couple of days. These swells are likely to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. 

A tornado is possible overnight along the south Florida Gulf Coast.

Make Your Decision for Christ NOW!!!!!!! Time is Up!!!!!!!

Jesus Christ’s Offer of Salvation:

The ABCs of Salvation through Jesus Christ (the Lamb)

A. Admit/Acknowledge/Accept that you are sinner. Ask God’s forgiveness and repent of your sins.

. . . “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23).

. . . “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.” (Romans 3:10).

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.” (1 John 1:8).

B. Believe Jesus is Lord. Believe that Jesus Christ is who He claimed to be; that He was both fully God and fully man and that we are saved through His death, burial, and resurrection. Put your trust in Him as your only hope of salvation. Become a son or daughter of God by receiving Christ.

. . . “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:15-17). For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).

C. Call upon His name, Confess with your heart and with your lips that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.

. . . “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10).

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (John 1:8-10).

. . . “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. (John 2:2).

. . . “In this was manifested the love of god toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.” (1 John 4:9, 14-15).

. . . “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:8-10).

. . . “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).

. . . “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).

. . . “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.” (Romans 1:16).

. . . “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts: 4:12).

. . . “Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth for there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” (1 Timothy 2:4-6).

. . . “For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thessalonians 5:9).

. . . “But as many as received him, to them gave the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.” (John 1:12).

True Church / Bride of Christ Spared from God’s Wrath:

 Romans 5:8-10. “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.”

Romans 12:19Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

1 Thessalonians 1:10. And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.

1 Thessalonians 5:9. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

Romans 8:35. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

Jeremiah 30:7. Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble, but he shall be saved out of it.

Revelation 3:10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
