      For many years Noah warned about a flood also….. no one believed until it came but it was too late.

    Another quake this could be the sign for the big one to come. The hazard management has a plan in place to deal with a major earthquake disaster.

      Yes, the Hazard Management has a plan in place to deal with a major earthquake disaster and God also has a plan for those that trust and serve him.

      You really should watch less porn.

        Not everyone follows your lead, there are some decent adults who wake very early to catch up on work and read the international news on line, guess you are unable to realize that because you are one of those porn addicts.

    That was the biggest one in some time, and mercifully short.  We do have masonry and paint crack damage in three rooms that we won't whine about.  I suspect many others do to.  So not entirely damage free.

      930: you mock those who believe in God, who have a type of faith? Why?

      I never understood this.

      • Anonymous says:

        They are without God and scared. Don't know what to do , start reading your Bible. They think they can mock away God. They will see. Read about what happened to the children who were mocking Elijah.

          That's right.  The children said he was bald, so this loving "God" had bears come and tear the kids to pieces.

            Just goes to show God is love but there is also another side to him also, if he would allow unruly and rude children to be punished can you imagine what he is going to do with ungodly adults, fire and brimstone.

        Probably because the whole concept is so crazy, starting with the world appearing by magic and going downhill from there.  Long live the flying spaghetti monster.

      09:30, first thing I thought when I heard about the Earthquake this morning was that crackpot Caymanian woman who posted the video the she had had conversations with God would be on Cayman27 tonight telling us the dream was now taking shape…..and the end is near.

      Can't wait to see her next post.

        Noah was deemed crazy too can you imagine the poor man building an ark  for such a long time and I can just imagine how people must have jeered and mocked poor Noah when the animals entered the ark two by two and when he shut the door I can imagine the shouts "Prime candidate for a mad house".  What if the earthquake this morning was just a sign of things to come?

        I hope that her predictions won't happen but what if they do? I pray that God will keep these islands save in any event.

          Out of interst why did God destroy all the other innocent animals for Man's sins? As an omnipotent power a non-discrimating flood is an on choice to take out only humans. It was a good job noone else like the fishermen of the time thought to climb into their boats when their feet started to get wet.

          • Anonyanmous says:

            You need to understand God before you post silly questions, God did not destroy all the innocent animals for man’s sin. A pair of every animal on earth was saved and they replenished the earth after the flood. Don’t worry about the fishermen of Noah’s time they perished worry about yourself and the choice that you will make to avoid the wrath of God’s judgement.

            • Anonymous says:

              I didn't say all the animals I said all the other animals. So God only saved 2 of each big species out of billions of innocent animals. You should understand your God and why you think he is limited in his power that he has to kill innocents as collateral damage. But as a Christian is seems bad to think for yourself, even worse in Cayman, as they do not even think of others as you can tell from the awful selfish driving to and from church at the weekend. Just no consideration of others. Read the bible, God is alwats watching, not just while you are sitting in church 1 hour a week.

          Yes Noah was deemed a crazy man as he was building a boat on land on the middle of a desert. The difference between Noah and the Caymanian woman is the time period we are in. For one Christ had not yet come to fulfil the law and grace was not present. God had looked at the world not just a country and saw how wicked the people were and it grieved him. He decided he would start over. Noah was just and got brought him out, Lot was just and he rescued him from the destruction yet this CaymaniAn woman if she is so just and righteous still sounds like God will not rescue her or provide a way of escape for her. Her message is fearful and emotional not of peace. Despite what judgement God sets if you are at peace with God you are at peace with whatever His will is. Her focus is too much on the disaster rather than the creator. God does not divert attention from himself the devil does through fear. She feeds her spirit and followers with videos of tsunamis destroying places rather than encouraging them in The Lord and speaking on repentance. When God spoke to Moses to go speAk to pharoah his message was simple. Let my people go! He didn't tell pharoah what the outcome would be if he didn't because God does not want us coming to him out of fear but rather with a pure and sincere heart. Just because God gives you a dream it doesn't meAn the contents are to be shared. RAther it may be a wake up call to alert you to say a simple message repent for the kingdom of God is at hand. Her video is mixed with some truth, some fear, confusion, etc. those ingredients still don't equate to God. What glory would God get from this? Yes we are to turn from our wicked ways yes we should repent of our sins but it's not because a tsunami or earthquake is coming to destroy us. If she is so grieved in spirit about this then she should be telling everyone she sees and warning people as not everyone has social media or internet. And for the record God did not do a spiritual bucket challenge at the prayer meeting. It's almost like we had the prayer meeting and Now God is pleased! No he ain't, the wicked still wicked. Remember Sinners are expected to sin but those that call themselves Christians and still lie, fornicate, gossip, backbite, turn away from helping those in need etc are the ones he expects better from because if you know better aNd don't do better it is a sin to you. God desires that no one perishes but that All would come to repentance, but the truth is the path is narrow and straight that leads to eternal life. My prAyer for   Cayman is that the people will get to know God for themselves and stop relying on these churches aNd church folks to tell them about God. Having a relationship with God for yourself is better than any second hand info you can get! God is just as angry at the church folks as he is with sin so don't be deceived.

          How long did Noah live again?  900 years?  That make sense to you?

        Certainly you and your thumbs up friends need a wake up call and you can be sure you will receive it. If you read the bible you would know it is fulfilling. Im pretty sure you are the one with the mental health issue. I feel sorry for you. Please seek some help, if all else fails, Pray, God just may hear you.

        14:47 first thing I thought about as I felt the second jolt in the evening was of you and those with your same persuasions and hope that God will still have mercy on the Cayman Islands for the sake of our forefathers who believed and worshiped him.
