One of my favorite websites is Bill Koenig’s International News. Bill has written an excellent book called, Eye to Eye – Facing the Consequences of Dividing Israel. His book detail major disasters that the coincide with the United States pressuring Israel to divide it’s nation. In Zechariah, God warns us, “And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.”
His latest article talks about a major storm that struck Washington, D.C. while PM Olmert of Israel was visiting the White house. Many like to look at major storms and natural disasters as just “mother nature” but it look more and more like God is warning us. Below is part of the article.
A major storm hits the
White House at the moment
Olmert and his staff were leaving
the West Wing – Bill Koenig
Note from Bill:
Toward the middle of Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert’s 75-minute meeting with President Bush, a violent storm with wind gusts of 55 to 70 mph hit the Washington, D.C., area.
As the very moment Olmert was leaving the West Wing of the White House, the White House press and photographers were forced to run quickly to the pressroom for cover because of high winds, lightning and pouring rain.
Olmert was under the covering of the porte-cochere at the West Wing entrance and got into his limousine quickly due to the horizontal rains and very strong winds.
Olmert’s staff members ran for their vehicles as the downpour began — which completely drenched them. (It rained one to three inches in just an hour at the White House and throughout parts of the Washington region.)
Up to 500,000 residences and businesses were without power. Power was off at our home for nine and a half hours and came back on at 12:38 a.m. It was projected that some areas of Washington could remain without power for 24 to 48 hours.
A friend who has covered the White House for years said he had never seen a storm hit so quickly with such force, at the exact time a head of state and his staff were leaving.
