New Zealand should therefore not be surprised that a city called Christchurch, a city named after the Son of God and his church, was firstly shaken hard. But it ignored the warning, it even held a 'religious service' to which every godless, idolatrous, false, Satanic 'religion' was invited. It failed to worship God alone, it failed to give him alone the glory, it failed to slough off its foul idolatry and hypocrisy. Even weak and foolish churches joined in that godless 'service', although they know that lukewarmness and hyprocrisy are loathed by God and condemned by him and will bring punishment.
Therefore the hard warning shake in which no one died was followed by a much harder one that flattened the city, killed people, and reduced its godless cathedral to ruin. Its pride was in the building, not in the reason for it. Its pride was reduced to rubble.
But, heedless of those warnings, this foolish, godless nation then began to pass a law that would call homosexuality equal to marriage. The dictionary cannot stomach that, thousands of years of history cannot stomach that, logic cannot stomach that, mathematics cannot stomach that. Marriage is the physical, sexual, mental, emotional and spiritual joining of a man and a woman, ordained by God, and it cannot be anything else, no matter what hordes of godless fools might say in defiance. Even kindergarten mathematics says that an apple and an orange is not equal to two apples or two oranges, yet this godless, illogical nation said it could define a word as anything it pleased.
It cannot. God will not accept that evil. So he delivered a severe warning against that by visiting upon this nation the worst drought we have had for seventy years. But he was mocked, in Parliament, by a foolish godless man who does not know what a rainbow is and what it means, or care, and thus he mocked God Almighty.
So then Wellington was given a warning, on a Sunday, on the Lord's Day. A hard, sharp warning. And the building called Public Trust was badly damaged, as were the upper floors of the Bank of New Zealand building. Two idols were singled out: trusting in public opinion and trusting in the worship of money.
Yet still this godless, hypocritical nation ignores God, ignores his love, ignores the truth, worships gods of its own imaginings. It ignores the fact that Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed for the evils that it now calls good, in law.
The Bible says God is not mocked (Galatians 6:7), and that we reap what we sow, and it warns again and again that when a nation turns against him it will be punished. God will punish it. He will turn nature against it till it repents of its evil and turns back to him.
God loves us and wants the best for us. Satan hates us and wants the worst. When we reject the love of God we choose the hatred of Satan, and by aligning ourselves with Satan we make ourselves enemies of God. When we reject God's love we have chosen his wrath, and we must accept the consequences.
