World told to brace itself for at least THREE big urban disasters in next ten years

The world should be braced to expect three to five big urban disasters in the next ten years, the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) has warned.

It said preparation for these disasters was needed now and revealed that the catastrophes aid workers feared most were earthquakes affecting the large cities of Tehran in Iran, Istanbul in Turkey or Kathmandu in Nepal.

The report was commissioned following the devastation caused in the Haiti earthquake last year which killed more than 300,000 people.

Working closely with local traders, businesses, communities and government following such disasters was particularly important, the report said.

It also suggested prioritising support for permanent resettlement in existing neighbourhoods, rather than focusing on working in camps or providing temporary shelter.

The 950million people now living in urban slums would be particularly vulnerable during any disaster.

Job 14:17-19 (Holman Christian Standard Bible) “My rebellion would be sealed up in a bag, and You would cover over my iniquity. But as a mountain collapses and crumbles and a rock is dislodged from its place, as water wears away stones and torrents wash away the soil from the land, so You destroy a man’s hope.”

So, the “hope” is for the remnant, not this rebellious dying world, where some cling to nothing but “Jesus will save me if only I believe what the preachers tickle my ears with.” They are receiving what they have bargained for by following Satan’s lead and scoffing at Yahweh’s Divine Counsel in Her Word by listening to the blind leaders that claim to know the Truth but have proved false to the Power of our Grand Creator.

1 Chronicles 29:15 “For we are foreigners and sojourners in Your presence as were all our ancestors. Our days on earth are like a shadow, without hope.”

That is part of this dying world children, but our hope is firmly established in Yahweh and Her Son Christ, our Savior. Established by WAY of the TRUTH. To be independent is to follow Satan’s way. Not a good route to follow. It leads to the pit.

Psalm 25:1 “[ Dependence on the LORD ] Davidic. LORD, I turn my hope to You.”
