“Do not try to ride out this storm … we can’t save you once the storm hits.” – Florida Govenor Scott
Florida Governor Scott is onto something – he is sending out the correct message.
“Florida needs our prayers” will be the mantra often repeated, however, prayer for what?
What Florida needs is repentance, not prayers.
Or those eighteen who died when the tower in Siloam fell on them — do you think they were more guilty than all the others living in Jerusalem? I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish. (Luke 13:4-5)
For one thing, many individuals that gave the wind to the hate crime in Enumclaw Washington are located in Florida, for another God sends hardships as a discipline.
However, only, and only those who are “trained” by the hurricanes of life will enter into God’s glorious heavens.
Mankind was kicked out the Garden of Eden because of sin and this brief time we call life is allowed that we might have a chance to repent.
Make no mistake about it, only those who are “trained” by such hardships will become saved individuals.
No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. (Hebrews 12:11)
One repentance is to not associate with those who claim to be Christians, but are:
But now I am writing you that you must not associate with anyone who calls himself a brother but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or a slanderer, a drunkard or a swindler. With such a man do not even eat. (1 Corinthians 5:11)
