2008: Signs in the Heavens

"There will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth dismay among nations, in perplexity at the roaring of the sea and the waves, men fainting from fear and the expectation of the things which are coming upon the world; for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Luke 21:25-26

The earth shook in 2008 with hurricanes such as Hurricane Ike hitting Texas and floods spattering Iowa. Although this year saw fewer natural disasters than 2007, the devastation of individual events pushed 2008 to No. 3 in the rankings of most expensive disaster years on record, according to a report by Munich Re Group.

The heavens continue to display wonder and fulfill the role given to them in Genesis 1:1, "God created the heavens and the earth. .... and let them be for signs and seasons.
