After Hurricane María: A Word of Hope for Puerto Rico

My heart is absolutely broken for my country Puerto Rico as I hear the devastation that hurricane María left. Nothing has truly felt like home since I left July 8, 1991. As I seek the Lord I hear Him saying that this is not the time to be preaching Matthew 24 (End-time prophesies); the fulfillment of Matthew 24 will be much worst. However, this is the time to tell people around the world that as they continue to reject HIM, “This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.”[1] The absence of light is darkness; the absence of God is the devil so when good is rejected, evil takes the throne. Jesus came to give abundant life, the devil came to kill, steal and destroy.[2] Lifestyles of vulgarity, hate against each other, violence, mockery, witchcraft, idolatry and others are an open rejection to the God who used Puerto Rico as a powerful giant of evangelism around South America. An open rejection to the God who for decades protected this island from direct hits, hurricane after hurricane. I said to my God, “But Puerto Rico is not the only one!” I heard the Lord saying, “Puerto Rico is in great darkness, anguish and disappear right now, but my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and will turn from their wicked ways and I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.[3] I will then cause my river of living waters[4] to cover the island of Puerto Rico and I will prosper them even as their souls prosper.”[5] In these words I find consolation and hope for my soul.
