*After a great earthquake, don’t wait for “officials” to tell you what to do, or wait until you see the tsunami wave roaring over your head, RUN TO HIGH GROUND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The “Camp Fire” burning in Paradise, California, about 180 miles northeast of San Francisco, is still burning out of control. Nearly 30,000 people were ordered to evacuate on Thursday.

California Fire Captain Scott McLean said that Paradise was “pretty much…destroyed,” reported USA Today.

At least six deaths have been reported, according to MercuryNews.com.

Police officer Mark Bass, a Chico officer who lives in Paradise, described his harrowing escape:

“We were surrounded by fire; we were driving through fire on each side of the road. It was just a wall of fire on each side of us and we could hardly and we could hardly see the road in front of us.”

Residents reported very chaotic scenes, and emergency personnel couldn’t tell where the fire was because “it was everywhere,” said Brynn Chatfield.

Acting Governor-elect Gavin Newsom declared a state of emergency in Butte County, while Jerry Brown was out of the state.

In the meantime, the Hill Fire in Ventura County, which started on Thursday, is only about 15 percent contained. Camarillo, Ventura and Thousand Oaks residents have also been ordered to evacuate.

The largest fire in California history to date, the Woolsey Fire, which beasts last year’s inferno and which also started on Thursday, is burning parts of Ventura and Los Angeles Counties. The fire has consumed 70,000 acres and an innumerable number of homes. The entire City of Malibu was placed under evacuation order.

One Ventura County resident said,

“I think a lot of people should realize this is what your valuable life leads to,” as he pointed to his truck, “plastic bags on the back of your pickup truck,” reported NBCLosAngeles.com.

Our souls are extremely valuable, because we, our souls (with a new, glorious body, in heaven; or a dying body in hell, which actually never dies [Mark 9:42-48]) live forever in either one of two places, heaven, or hell. Albeit, this man is right about our lives here in the fleshly body…

The Word of God tells us,

“Man, that is born of a woman, is of few days and full of trouble” Job 14:1

Nevertheless, we have a great consolation, those who know our God:

“We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord” 2 Corinthians 5:8

It seems the wealthy in California throughout wine country last year about this same time, and this year in Ventura and Los Angeles Counties, including Malibu residents, have seen more than their share of consuming fires.

The Word of God also says,

“You shall be visited of the Lord of hosts with thunder, earthquake and great noise, with storm and tempest and the flame of devouring fire” Isaiah 29:6

Perhaps they will fare much better when they stop killing babies, raping children, persecuting Christians and conservatives and cursing our president, who lifts up God’s holy name throughout the nation!

Am I being callous? No, I am being truthful. The Word of God tells us that the wicked reap what they sow:

“Be not deceived; God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, that shall he also reap” Galatians 6:7

God also said,

“If My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and forgive their sin and will heal their land” 2 Chronicles 7:14

Salvation is offered to everyone who repents of sin and receives Jesus as their Lord and Savior; unless a person crosses a line with God, to the point of becoming reprobate (Romans 1:21-32; Hebrews 6:4-6). Now is the time of salvation for everyone; tomorrow, or even the next hour, could be too late.

Hundreds of Bible prophecies have been fulfilled and those remaining shall surely come to pass. Are you prepared to stand before God and give an account of the life you have lived on this earth (Revelation 20:12-15)? If not, salvation is only a prayer away.
