You know, the strange weather here in America is caused by someone. Think of it as a young God with PMS. Thus, what enters his ears, is processed by his brain. Depending upon how powerful his emotion to what he entertains, the subsequent event can be a change in the jet stream, or it could be tornadic activity, or, amoung other things, it could even be an earthquake.
An entire nation could conceivably be wiped off the face of the earth: I am directing this to Israel. You and your people have no promises by God. Oh nation of Israel, someone hears and observes what you do, and his arm is far-reaching.
