That the same Lord who calmed the sea of Galilee in front of the distraught disciples is the Lord who controls Hurricane Irma, and indeed all weather, and earthquakes and volcanoes should be obvious to every believer. Jonah 1:4, “But the Lord sent out a great wind into the sea, and there was a mighty tempest…”
All of these “natural” calamities and expressions of his power and judgment are harbingers of the final judgment and the utter destruction of the universe by fire, when he comes to reign. For believers, our salvation draws near, for the reprobate, their destruction looms.
Lord use these means to bring in thy elect people, warn the wicked world and cause the church and the authorities to do all in their power to alleviate the suffering.
