Orlando Shooting: A Warning from God!

The Orlando nightclub shooting, also known as the Orlando massacre, was a terrorist attack committed in the form of a mass shooting at an abominable location on the early morning of June 12, 2016. A total of 49 people were killed, along with the gunman, and 53 others were wounded inside the nightclub (Ref: wiki).

You shall therefore keep My statutes and My judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations, either any of your own nation or any stranger who dwells among you (for all these abominations the men of the land have done, who were before you, and thus the land is defiled), lest the land vomit you out also when you defile it, as it vomited out the nations that were before you. For whoever commits any of these abominations, the persons who commit them shall be cut off from among their people. Lev 18:26-29

Below are a few examples how God judges nations and the way land vomits it’s inhabitants.

  • God used Israel to judge Canaanites (Lev 18:27).
  • God used Babylonians to judge Israel (Jer 21:4-5). 
  • God used Medes to judge Babylon (Isa 13:17-19).

God can use evil people and/or even terrorists to execute His judgement and the only way to escape His judgments is turning back to Jesus Christ by repenting of our sins and following His commandments.

It is indeed sad that God turned Sodom and Gomorrah to ashes by burning every single person alive and wiped out the entire world with a great flood – just like everyone is sad for the shooting that happened in Orlando, Florida. But the most saddest part is, even Christians neither knew God nor His judgments, so that they may turn back to God and live. Even if they do know, they fail to declare His judgments.

Ezek 9:4 and the LORD said to him, “Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and put a mark on the foreheads of the men who sigh and cry over all the abominations that are done within it.”

Only God’s people who sigh and cry over all the abominations will be saved on the day when God visits the land for it’s iniquity.

To know when the land will vomit its inhabitants, refer Land Vomits its Inhabitants and these events must serve as a warning for us to repent and turn back to God to escape His judgment.

It is also worth noting that there is prophecy of Dumitru Duduman on America that warns of Florida that one day it will burn (Ref: handofhelp.com)

Therefore, let us declare God’s judgments and warn people who take the path of the pit, so that they may repent, turn towards God and live.
