The Lord has His Way in the Whirlwind

Nahum 1:3 -- "The LORD is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the LORD hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet."

The Lord Has His Way In The Whirlwind
"The word of God tells us that God has His way in the whirlwind. One can only make of that that every building blown apart or submerged, every fallen tree, every ruined neighborhood and, yes, every lost life is the direct work of God Almighty.

"When will we ever quit attributing the work of our God to a ficticious Mother nature? How can we in one breath pray for God to deliver us and in the next deny that He had any part in the destruction in the first place?

"The wonder, to me, is not that God does these things, but that He hasn't been more severe in His judgments on us. These things are only a foretaste of the havoc He will wreak on this earth before the great and dreadful day of Christ's return."

-- An excerpt from an August 2005 post by Mark Osgatharp, Lakeview Missionary Baptist Church Wynne, Arkansas, which was in the context of the Hurricance Katrina that hit the Gulf Coast. It was interesting to find in the responses that many Baptists do not believe the Lord has his way in the whirlwind and in the storm...
