Jeremiah 20:3 – And it came to pass on the morrow, that Pashur brought forth Jeremiah out of the stocks. Then said Jeremiah unto him, The Lord hath not called thy name Pashur, but Magormissabib (definition: terror all around).
That is what happened Saturday morning: https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/hawaii-ballistic-missile-threat-alert-phones-was-false-alarm-officials-n837511
Let us quote from that article to flesh out the amazing work done here by the God of Westboro Baptist Church…
“Hawaii residents were thrown into a panic Saturday morning after an emergency alert was mistakenly sent, warning them to “seek immediate shelter” from a ballistic missile threat, and it took emergency officials 38 minutes to send a new alert to mobile phones that the threat was a false alarm… Officials quickly confirmed with the military’s U.S. Pacific Command that there was no missile threat, and at 8:20 a.m., the state’s Emergency Management Agency followed up in a tweet: “NO missile threat to Hawaii.” A similar alert was sent to cellphones at 8:45 a.m., 38 minutes after the first mobile alert… Sen. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, blasted the mistake as “totally inexcusable” and told MSNBC what happened was “an abomination.” “We’re looking for some quick and aggressive accountability … we need an emergency notification system we can rely on 100 percent of the time,” Schatz said.”
It prompted this response from some famous types, like Jim Carrey: http://hollywoodlife.com/2018/01/14/jim-carrey-hawaii-ballistic-missile-minutes-live/
We are here to tell you that God sent the false alarm, and it is the very picture of perfection in all its parts and pieces.
We sit quietly waiting for more glorious reminders of this fact: Psalms 127:1 Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman (or super-expensive electronic notification system) waketh but in vain.
Amen, and AMEN!
