im going to say all 4. yeah 4. there will be the people who will return to the same old sins and not be effected. there will be the people who will see the light. and there will be the people who fall into the darkness thinking that it doesnt matter. there will be the people who become more resolved and rooted in their faith.

There are many that are caught up in the system or status quo. Katrina has opened the gates for people of faith to show the promise,love,compassion and peace that only God can give. People in New Orleans claim to have prayed more in the last week than they have in their entire past. TV celebrity fundraisers are now singing songs of aknowledgement about God. Desperate people are now seeking God.I hope this sticks. Obviously when there is nothing left, there will always be God. My prayer is that these will experience God leaving a positive impact. That they will be fed spiritual food and living water. My fear is that in the end both people of faith and government will be a taken for granted.

Its sad to think they will build a bigger and better NO with stronger levvies and the people will go back to the same sins that won't help the poor. I live 1 mile from a casino and I see my poor neighbors and freinds from work going out there. They tell me when the win (few and far between) but not when they loose. I hear the horror stories of the people loosing everything. I have never been in the place but the parking lot is always packed. I hope the revival will stick also, I was reading the other morning and came across this passage in Isaiah 24.
Isaiah 24 (New International Version)
New International Version (NIV)
Copyright 1973, 1978, 1984 by International Bible Society



Isaiah 24
The LORD's Devastation of the Earth
1 See, the LORD is going to lay waste the earth
and devastate it;
he will ruin its face
and scatter its inhabitants-
2 it will be the same
for priest as for people,
for master as for servant,
for mistress as for maid,
for seller as for buyer,
for borrower as for lender,
for debtor as for creditor.

3 The earth will be completely laid waste
and totally plundered.
The LORD has spoken this word.

4 The earth dries up and withers,
the world languishes and withers,
the exalted of the earth languish.

5 The earth is defiled by its people;
they have disobeyed the laws,
violated the statutes
and broken the everlasting covenant.

6 Therefore a curse consumes the earth;
its people must bear their guilt.
Therefore earth's inhabitants are burned up,
and very few are left.

7 The new wine dries up and the vine withers;
all the merrymakers groan.

8 The gaiety of the tambourines is stilled,
the noise of the revelers has stopped,
the joyful harp is silent.

9 No longer do they drink wine with a song;
the beer is bitter to its drinkers.

10 The ruined city lies desolate;
the entrance to every house is barred.

11 In the streets they cry out for wine;
all joy turns to gloom,
all gaiety is banished from the earth.

12 The city is left in ruins,
its gate is battered to pieces.

I hope they give up the blame game, just accept what is done and rebuild and thank God they are alive to tell the tale.

-tri

Here is a news report concerning the just-beginning V.A. hospital in New Orleans. Yes, for 7 years after Hurricane Katrina turned the medical facility into one large black mold infestation, the V.A. system has been floundering in the State of Louisiana. how do I know this? I was both employed by, and a patient of, V.A. Medical Hospital New Orleans. here is the news story:
