Hurricane Hardships : “Can’t Save You” : “Doomsday”
Triple Trouble: Cat 5 Irma, Cat 3 Jose, Cat 1 Katia

“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)

(wunderground.com)—Hurricane Irma plowed through the Turks and Caicos Islands (population 31,000) on Thursday evening, as it headed west-northwest at 16 mph towards The Bahamas and Florida. Irma maintained Category 5 intensity with 175 mph winds as its eye crossed the small privately-owned Big Ambergris Cay, but the core of hurricane missed the capital of Cockburn Town, and may pass just south of Providenciales, the most heavily populated island in the country.
Hurricane hunter observations on Thursday evening showed lower winds in Irma than earlier in the day, and found a distinct double wind maximum, caused by concentric eyewalls. By my count, this may be Irma’s 7th eyewall replacement cycle, and appears to be the first one that has notably degraded the hurricane’s maximum winds. The Air Force hurricane hunter plane in the storm Thursday night found top surface winds near 165 mph on their first pass through the eye near 7:35 pm EDT, but only 140 mph on their second pass through near 9 pm EDT. The pressure stayed nearly constant in the two passes, at 920 and 921 mb, respectively. The reduction in the peak winds is not necessarily a good thing, since the hurricane hunter data showed that the hurricane-force winds of the storm had spread out over a larger area, which will increase the storm surge. In addtion, the fact that Irma maintained its very low pressure may mean the aircraft may have missed sampling the strongest winds of the hurricane. Total precipitable water loops showed that part of Irma’s apparent weakening may be due to the island of Hispaniola blocking the inflow of moisture from the south, which was reducing the amount of moisture to the storm. This effect will diminish on Friday morning, when Irma moves to the west of Hispaniola. The hurricane will then be drawing air from the south over high terrain in Cuba, but the blocking effect of Cuba is much less than that of Hispaniola. I don’t see any reason for Irma to weaken further through Saturday, and it may intensify again to 185 mph winds.
