Extreme Flooding

The ‘Beginnings of Sorrows’; From Detroit to Germany to Mumbai, climate change is worsening torrential downpours

Mark 13

3 And as he [Jesus Christ] sat upon the mount of Olives over against the temple, Peter and James and John and Andrew asked him privately,

4 Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign when all these things shall be fulfilled?

5 And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you:

6 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

7 And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet. (Seven (7) Year Tribulation is STILL TO COME).

8 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrows.

The ‘Beginnings of Sorrows’; From Detroit to Germany to Mumbai, climate change is worsening torrential downpours

Thanks to climate change, the Earth’s atmosphere now holds more moisture than in decades past, which is, in part, leading to more frequent extreme rainfall events, experts say. 

The last few weeks alone have provided ample evidence to back up that assertion. 

Up to 7 inches of rain fell on parts of Germany over a 12-hour period last week, the equivalent of two months’ worth for the region. The downpour resulted in severe flooding that left nearly 200 dead, more than 700 injured and more than 1,000 people still missing in Germany and surrounding nations. 

“Climate change has arrived in Germany,” said Svenja Schulze, the country’s environmental minister. 

While touring areas ravaged by the flooding on Sunday, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said, “We have to get faster in the fight against climate change. 

“The sum of all events that we are witnessing in Germany and the forces with which they occur all suggest … that it has something to do with climate change,” she told residents affected by the floods. 

The Mumbai international airport reported more than 9 inches of rain in 24 hours early Sunday. Of that total, close to 8 inches fell in just six hours. More than 30 people were killed across the city of 12 million because of the flooding caused by the monsoon rainfall burst. 

“We have been talking about climate change and it is happening,” Aaditya Thackeray, a state environment minister in India, said of the rainfall. 

A June 26 storm in Detroit unloaded 6 inches of rain over a five-hour period, leaving much of the city and its surroundings underwater. Motorists were stranded on flooded roads, and homes were inundated. 

Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer said the flooding showed it was time to “address climate change” by “building resilient infrastructure that will keep us safe and keep our economy going.” 

As the Earth’s average surface temperatures continue to rise, so does the amount of moisture being held in the atmosphere, studies have shown. For every 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit of warming, the atmosphere can hold 7 percent more moisture. Since preindustrial times, the Earth has warmed by roughly 2 degrees

The excess moisture is not the only factor, however, behind the extreme rainfall events. While India experiences heavy rains annually during the monsoon season, climate scientists have for years warned that extreme precipitation events have been on the rise thanks to the shifting weather patterns being caused by rising temperatures. In 2019, for example, more than 1,200 people were killed and millions were displaced from flooding born of especially fierce rains.

A new study published in Geophysical Research Letters found that climate change is often causing weather systems to move much slower, potentially leading to more severe downpours. 

“We think these storms in general will become slower moving in summer and autumn because of Arctic amplification,” Hayley Fowler, a hydroclimatologist at Newcastle University and one of the study’s authors, told National Geographic.

Thanks to the rapid warming underway in Antarctica and the Arctic, where temperatures are rising faster than the rest of the planet, the jet stream is being destabilized. As a result, traditional weather patterns have been altered. That jet stream disruption, scientists believe, is also a factor that has exacerbated the extreme drought conditions across the American West. 

Further east, flash flood warnings were issued over the weekend across a portion of the U.S. that spanned from Cincinnati to Boston, an area where 55 million people live. Portions of the Northeast have been five times wetter this year than the average July, and scenes of flooding posted to social media sites have become commonplace.

On July 8, more than an inch of rain fell in a single hour in New York City, inundating some subway stops and submerging some roadways. The deluge ranked as one of the 10 most intense cloudbursts in the last 80 years. 

As has been witnessed in Germany, Detroit, Mumbai and other places this year, inundating rains can quickly overtake infrastructure built for an age before climate change had begun to announce itself so loudly. 

In historic terms, the most rainfall ever recorded in a 24-hour period in the U.S. occurred in 2017, when Hurricane Harvey unloaded 42 inches of rain. The storm, which parked itself over Texas and Louisiana for four days, eventually dumping more than 60 inches of rain, is believed to have stalled out due to worsening jet stream fluctuations. 

A number of studies have also linked that record-setting rainfall event to — what else — climate change.

Matthew 24:42; Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.

Matthew 25:13; Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Mark 13:35; Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning.

Luke 21:36; Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man

Luke 12:37-39; Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.

Jesus Christ’s Offer of Salvation:

The ABCs of Salvation through Jesus Christ (the Lamb)

. . . “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).

. . . “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).
