Is it a ‘natural disaster?
Or is it a plague?
How to know the difference? Read on….
Aussies have always taken great pride in their ability to ‘bounce back’ after natural disasters in this land described in Dorothea Mackellars’ famous poem I Love A Sunburnt Country “… flood and fire and famine..”
Until recent decades they were regular churchgoers who knew God, showed true gratitude and appreciated towards Him as Creator and giver of all that is good. Most turned to Him for help (as well as helping others).
Rev. R Johnson who conducted the first church service in Australia, just a few days after the first landing quoted from Psalm 116, verse 12: “What shall I render unto the Lord for all that He has done for me?”
Today, many Aussies help out during tough times. Neighbours help neighbours. Anonymous donations pour in to assist with the cost of additional resources and stories of the kindness of strangers abound.
When bushfires strike the almost completely volunteer staffed country fire services swing into action. And this often includes travelling to fight fires in other areas when needed. Volunteers who can’t directly fight fires provide support services to the ‘frontline’. Food is prepared for the fire fighters, emergency accommodation, and often clothing etc. provided for those displaced by the bushfires.
Similar support services are activated when floods and storms occur with, the again mainly voluntary, State Emergency Services swinging into action as and when needed.
But what happens when these disasters are everywhere at once? And the number grows and grows, and grows…
Has it become a plague? A plague can be a curse. A plague can be an epidemic. A plague can be a scourge. A plague can be trouble.
A plague can be a divine chastisement. The plague of hail, with fire and thunder (ref: NKJV Exodus 9:13-33 ).
Plague is looming over Australia.
Warning was given – so many times over so many years…
In these times of constant technological advances seems we have grown accustomed to expecting that we can cope – but only to a ‘tipping’ point. And that point is almost upon Australia!
How many Aussies will call upon almighty God?
Not very many!
And how many heed warnings from Him?
(Warning: A warning is something which is said or written to tell people of a possible danger, problem, or other unpleasant thing that might happen.)
Recently there have been a number of notices sent to Australia’s government (the people’s representatives) cautioning the country about the dire consequences of it’s seriously adverse treatment of an anointed and appointed Man of God (by bureaucrats).
The terrible end result of their behaviour was clearly and concisely explained.
The actions needed to avert this catastrophic damage to the entire nation have been provided in plain English – there was, and is, no room for misunderstanding!
Each cautionary communication has been ignored – even those explaining what will happen to the country – the plagues that will be suffered by all who reside in the land.
This wilful refusal to take notice of these forewarnings of disasters to be visited upon the nation has led to the onset of widespread drought, fires, floods and storms across the continent.
These calamities will inexorably grow larger and larger. And the number of catastrophes will escalate. People will not know where to turn when major disaster after major disaster unfolds and the emergency services have stretched to and beyond breaking point.
God has spoken, and He will not relent – until the government restores what it has taken.
In short, unless the government authorities reinstate and return all they have appropriated from the house of God, and publicly apologise to the Man of God, Australia can expect that by the end of December 2018 it will be severely affected by many monumental ‘plagues’ such as never been seen before.
In no particular order, and without addressing the financial slide, or political chaos, here’s a few examples of what has already begun:
On the first day of summer, December 1, 2018 the Queensland country fire situation was, in the words of the state’s Rural Fires services spokesperson ‘so many fires of abnormal and unprecedented ferocity and intensity – spread almost completely along the eastern side of the state’ as these fires, many of which had by then been burning for days.
The cause of many fires is attributed to lightning strikes.
Volunteers are flying in from all over the country to relieve the exhausted locals who have been fighting these fires for many days.
The Queensland Rural Fires spokesperson said there is no end in sight. Summer has just begun.
Most other parts of Australia are also vulnerable to bushfires.
A few days earlier Sydney received the average rainfall for the month of November in just two hours, causing widespread flooding and other major storm damage from the associated high winds. All public transport was seriously delayed, or completely cancelled for a day. Many people could not get to work. Those who did were advised to go home early by the Bureau of Meteorology because another blast of powerful wind and rain was due about mid afternoon.
Domestic and international flights were cancelled as only a single runway could be safely used. Frustrated and angry passengers clogged the airport as airline staff informed them the weather was considered to be as ‘acts of God’ which, for many their travel insurance (if they even had insurance) didn’t cover. These people were stranded without accommodation and would have to pay for another ticket to get to their destination.
A day or two before, South Australia suffered similar high winds and resultant damage to buildings, trees, and infrastructure that was unrelenting for three days. In the midst of this weather farming communities were decimated by the heavy rain and wind destroying the value of grain crops that had been nurtured all year and were now unsuitable to harvest.
The cost to Australia for these few days of ‘wild weather’ is still being counted – by the billions.
And the major drought destroying the livelihoods of so many Queensland and New South Wales farmers who have no feed for their stock will have major repercussions for the entire Australian population when the city dwellers realise the escalating meat prices are a direct consequence of this disaster. The many donations of hay and other stock fodder will be a mere ‘band-aid’ if the drought continues.
It’s time to act.
Before the plagues worsen.
Contact your local Member of Parliament (most seem to have forgotten they are supposed to represent their electorate). Lobby any, and everyone (especially media – mainstream & alternative / Social media) who can influence the government.

Thanks for taking the time to read this post.
Be blessed by it – if you don’t know about a problem how can you take action to correct it?
