“Deadly flooding has affected more than one million people in Pakistan, officials said Wednesday.” Tens of thousands have been rescued and hundreds of thousands remain stranded (AFP, September 10, 2014). “The death toll from the heaviest rain to fall on Kashmir in 50 years rose to more than 400 on Tuesday, with thousands still trapped on rooftops… On the Indian side of the heavily militarized Line of Control that divides the Himalayan region, the city of Srinagar lay submerged along with more than 2,000 villages” (MSN, September 9, 2014). Pakistan’s Prime Minister noted that, “the devastation caused by the record rains and the consequent flooding is unprecedented” (CNN, September 10, 2014). Record-breaking rain also drenched parts of Arizona this week, where nearly three inches of rain fell in a matter of hours, flooding roads and cutting power.
Many believe that weather disasters are happenstance. However, the destruction and suffering caused by such events, devastating floods, drenching rains and high seas are just one sign of the end of the age (Luke 21:25).
