Wrath of God:  The Black Death

A Distant Mirror: The Calamitous 14th Century
By Barbara W. Tuchman
Copyright 1978. Chapter 5.

Page 103: “To the people at large there could be but one explanation—the wrath of God. Planets might satisfy the learned doctors, but God was closer to the average man. A scourge so sweeping and unsparing without any visible cause could only be seen as Divine punishment upon mankind for its sins. It might even be God’s terminal disappointment in his creature. Matteo Villani compared the plague to the Flood in ultimate purpose and believed he was recording ‘the extermination of mankind.’”

Page 104: “Beyond demons and superstition the final hand was God’s. The Pope acknowledged it in a Bull of September 1348, speaking of the ‘pestilence with which God is afflicting the Christian people.’ To the Emperor John Cantacuzene it was manifest that a malady of such horrors, stenches, and agonies, and especially one bringing the dismal despair that settled upon its victims before they died, was not a plague ‘natural’ to mankind but ‘a chastisement from Heaven.’ To Piers Plowman ‘these pestilences were for pure sin.’”

The reason there are so many storms, drought (especially in California), tornadoes and other natural disasters in the United States is because there is so much sin in this country.  Because people like Barack Obama aggressively promote the sin of homosexuality, abortion, and other sins, the Lord is destroying different parts of the United States.  The Lord always has the final word on everything.

Psalm 37: 12-17:

“The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth.
The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming.
The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation.
Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.
A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked.
For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the LORD upholdeth the righteous.”

  1. TMJ: Very interesting dream. There is a lot of sin in the United States and that is why Obama is in the White House. But the Lord will have the final say.

    Something Providential happened a few days ago. Read the last comment on this post:

    The Lord told Abraham that he would have a son. Abraham believed God and it was imputed to him as righteousness. Eventually the Lord gave Abraham Isaac.

    A few years ago, the Lord revealed to me in a dream that Obama would resign from the White House. I still believe that the Lord will kick Obama out of the White House. I believe the Lord let me see that TV program about the Prophet Samuel and King Saul as confirmation that the Lord will get rid of Obama in the near future.
