This year has been a year of fires!

It seems like it never stops.

Now we hear of more fires in California --
burning whole city blocks,
many have lost everything.

The Adventist Redwood Academy was completely destroyed

This year also saw intensive fires British Columbia (Canada) and in Monatana as well as other states.

I left California a couple of years ago partly because of all the fires back then too, which were also burning parts of towns not far from me.

One of three very large fires in the same small area over a short span of time was the valley fire, which is believed to have been started by faulty hot tub wiring.

For years people in the area suspected an arsonist was the cause of at least some of them because there were so many fires and many of them without any good explanation for how they started. Last year a suspect was arrested.

Thankfully these things aren't more common because I think that the possibility for evil acts far exceeds what actually happens. The angels are still holding the winds, but it won't be for much longer. Our time to reach people with the gospel is short.



From The Review and Herald, 1906, several months after the earthquake in San Fransisco:
Quote:
“Seek ye the Lord, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness; it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the Lord's anger.... Woe unto the inhabitants of the seacoast, the nation of the Cherethites! the word of the Lord is against you; O Canaan, the land of the Philistines, I will even destroy thee, that there shall be no inhabitant.”

In many places there exist conditions that make these words of warning applicable in this our day. Should not the terrible earthquake that has caused almost complete destruction of San Francisco, one of the largest cities of America, awaken a most earnest interest to seek the Lord while he may be found? Let not our ministers, in their discourses, dwell upon commonplace matters. Now is a time when there should be a humbling of the heart before God. Let us seek him while he is to be found on the pardoning side, and not on the judgment side. Wake up, my brethren and sisters. You have no time to lose. Call upon the Lord while he may be found.

I'm not sure forest fires are a reason we should reach people, but there are many other reasons to know time is short. Our oceans are radioactive, our nuclear storage on land is leaking, but the main thing to know time is short is the general hostility we see demonstrated in the news.

It's the accumulated sum of signs.
One can discredit them if viewed individually, but the accumulated sum is showing that the world is sitting on the edge of something very major.

One of those signs are fires.
It has been a very high fire season in western USA and Canada, Asia (especially Indonesia) and Europe.

South Africa saw fires ripping through residential areas as well.


What is the message these fires bring?

"How can houses and lands compare in value with precious souls for whom Christ died?.. You cannot take with you there the smallest portion of your earthly treasure. Acquire what you may, preserve it with all the jealous care you are capable of exercising, and yet the mandate may go forth from the Lord, and in a few hours a fire which no skill can quench, may destroy the accumulations of your entire life, and lay them a mass of smoldering ruins." {1SM 269.2}

All those things are temporal, only a life hid in Christ will see eternity.

Arson is one of the signs of sitting on the edge of something very major?

So is this what we are to say to those who have lost family members, homes etc to these fires?

It should be one of the things mentioned. One other thing should be those who died are asleep and not suffering any pain or trouble.
