IT’S GONNA RAIN !
SALAD: Every American should experience a CA earthquake
Portland- Gladstone, Pleasant Valley, Sunnyside.
ILL: DEADLY WOUND HEALED.
Every American should be a Texan for one year.
Pastored in Texas for nine months “full-term.”
Hotter than two possums in a mailbox
So dry catfish are carrying canteens
So dry I’m spitting cotton
So dry birds are building nests of barbed wire
Dry as the heart of a haystack
So dry the Baptists are sprinkling, the Methodists are spitting,
and the Catholics are giving rain checks.
Colder than the Devil’s heart
ILL: EL PASO FLOOD ON CNN- EATING RAVIOLI’S
BREAD: A Bible story of when it was gonna rain & nobody knew
PASTA: GEN 6

Gen 6:7,8 “And the Lord said, “I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the
earth:… But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.”
Gen 6;11-13 “The earth was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence. And God
looked upon the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the
Gen 6:14-15 “Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms shalt thou make in the ark, and shat, pitch it within and without with pitch. And this is the fashion, which thou shalt make it of: The
length of the ark shall be 300 cubits (450’) and the breath 50 cubits (75’) and the height of it 30 cubits (45’).
ILL: NOT WORLD-WIDE JUST A LITTLE LOCAL FLOODING.
450 ft long- titanic was 882’ long, 92’ wide, 34’ high.
ARK was half as long, 2/3 as wide, and taller.
Than why did have Noah build the Titanic.
ILL: THEY SAY THE SAME ABOUT ANCIENT BABYLON.
It was only a small village that was easily overtaken by the Medo-Persia.
But Nebuchadnezzar’s image of gold was 90’
The Statue of Liberty w/o pedestal is 120’.

JOKE: NOAH LIVED TO 950 YEARS.
I’VE ALWAYS SAID NOAH DIDN’T DIE FROM THE FLOOD.
. HE DIED FROM BLOWING OUT HIS BIRTHDAY CANDLES
NOAH’S ADVISORS & CONSULTANTS
yr 1 No one has ever seen rain, out of touch
yr 20 Too negative, who wants to hear that?
yr 50 Need some good music and powerpoint
lazerlights and special effects
yr 75 Not practical enough, too prophetic
marriage of healthy eating, not prophecy
They were eating and drinking just fine
Marrying and giving into marriage until fine.
Until the day noah entered the ark.
yr 100 Increased intensity “IT’S GONNA RAIN!!!!!”
yr 120 Eyes blood-shot from a lack of sleep
Tear ducts are dry for weeping for his world.
Old hands dried and cracked from his tools
Voice cracking for 120 years of preaching
Crying “It’s Gonna Rain”
Our economy is crumbling before our eyes.
And it’s not just the big banks that are to blame.
The most recent federal reserve study showed that 43% of U.S. families spent more than they
earned. Americans spend $1.22 for each dollar they earn.
Many American’s worth less than nothing.
BUT IT’S MORE THAN OUR ECONOMY, OUR MORALITY
NEW YORK POST June 9, 2008 a city health department study
ONE IN FOUR NEW YORKERS HAS HERPES:
SEX in the city has led to STD’s in the city.
WE ARE DYING SPIRITUALLY
NEW YORK TIME 4/21/07 after Virginia Tech shootings
CDC 30,000 deaths by gunfire= 81 per day
57% of deaths in ages are suicide. You are your greatest threat
Over 40= 39 in a day/ 30 suicides -25 white male/5 white female.
76% of deaths by gunfire for all over 40 are suicide.
I hear it all the time
Upper class whites are content and happy. They feel no need for God
They’re killing themselves every day.
Policitians think the answers are gun laws
Financial stimulus packages
Our country needs a spiritual stimulus package
a revival of the soul.
We need to be born again.
MANY TELL US NOT TO PREACH OUR PROPHETIC MESSAGE.
LET’ S JUST FOCUS ON MARRIAGE OR HEALTH.
BUT JESUS SAYS THAT IN THE DAYS OF NOAH THEY WERE MARRYING AND GIVING INTO
EATING AND DRINKING UNTIL THE DAY NOAH ENTERED THE ARK.
THEY HAD NO PROBLEMS GETTING MARRIED AND EATING HEALTHY.
ILL: SOPHIA AND ONE MORE CHANCE!
PAUL TELLS TIMOTHY TO PREACH THE WORD IN AND OUT OF SEASON.
HE SAYS IN THE LAST DAYS PEOPLE WILL HAVE ITCHING EARS.
BUT OUR ECONOMY IS ERODING
FINANCES ARE FAILING
MARRIAGES AND MORALITY ARE MELTING
DESCENDENTS ARE DRIFTING
STOCK BROKERS AND STUDENTS ARE SUICIDAL
OUR COUNTRY OUR WORLD IS FALLING APART.
WHAT THIS WORLD NEEDS TO HEAR
IS NOT EVERYTHING IS GONNA BE ALRIGHT.
NOT OUR GOVERNMENT WILL FIGURE SOMETHING OUT.
NOT WE CAN FIX OUR PROBLEMS BY OURSELVES.
NOT YOU CHOOSE YOUR MORALITY & LIFESTYLE AND I’LL CHOOSE MINE.
WHAT THIS WORLD DESPERATELY NEEDS TO HEAR IS:
IT’S GONNA RAIN !!!!!!!!!
In 1969, in Pass Christian, Mississippi, a group planned a "Hurricane Party" Camille was coming
to the gulf coast. Outside the posh Richelieu Apartments Police Chief Jerry Peralta pulled up
A man with a drink in his hand on the second-floor balcony waved. Peralta yelled up, "you’ll need to clear out of here as quickly.” He replied, "this is my land," one yelled back. "you want me off, arrest me.” They all laughed and Peralta took down their names.
He came back to warn them all again. But this time he wrote down the names of the next of kin
of the 20 people. They laughed as he took the names. They were warned, but had no intention
It was 10:15 p.m. When the front wall of the storm came ashore. Scientists clocked Camille's
wind speed at more than 205 miles-per-hour, Raindrops hit with the force of bullets, waves crested 22-28’.
The worst damage was at the motels, go-go bars, and gambling houses Pass Christian, Mississippi, where some 20 were killed at a Hurricane Party Nothing was left of that three-story structure but the foundation. The only survivor was a 5yr old boy found clinging to a mattress.
