Les Young is the director of a satellite campus for Calvary Church in Johnson City, Tennessee, a charismatic church that holds to Continuationism and believes that the Baptism of the Holy Spirit is subsequent to salvation. Demonstrating the truism that believing in continued prophecy always has people look outside the Holy Bible for revealed truth, Young and his ministry – Encouragement for the End Times – has found a message hidden in the radar image of Hurricane Irma.
It’s a baby’s ultrasound photo.
The same was also posted on Young’s personal Facebook page. It was just important a message to get out. He “very clearly sees an unborn baby in the womb,” and then draws a parallel to abortion.
While abortion is a generational and ethnic genocide, infanticide, homicide and grievous evil – and while America will certainly suffer the wrath of Almighty God for allowing it to continue – that is not a picture of an unborn baby. That’s the “enhanced” satellite imagery of a hurricane.
What you see to the left is the image of an unborn baby. The resemblance is…well…imagined.
If there’s any similarity, it’s because radar technology used to “enhance” the satellite photos of hurricanes is similar to the sonar technology used to look inside the human body. Both locate objects from the echo of a signal that is bounced off the object, hence any resemblance.
You know…science and stuff.
Which is a more potent message to a world that considers it okay to murder people based upon their size or state of development, “Thou Shalt Not Murder” graven into tablets of stone by the finger of God or a satellite image of a passing hurricane that if you cross your eyes might look like a sonogram? While there is a “natural revelation” spoken of in Romans 1, it’s not in radar imagery of passing weather patterns.
Chapter 1, Paragraph 1 of the London Baptist Confession of Faith says, “The Holy Scripture is the only sufficient, certain, and infallible rule of all saving knowledge, faith, and obedience, although the light of nature, and the works of creation and providence do so far manifest the goodness, wisdom, and power of God, as to leave men inexcusable; yet are they not sufficient to give that knowledge of God and his will which is necessary unto salvation. Therefore it pleased the Lord at sundry times and in divers manners to reveal himself, and to declare that his will unto his church; and afterward for the better preserving and propagating of the truth, and for the more sure establishment and comfort of the church against the corruption of the flesh, and the malice of Satan, and of the world, to commit the same wholly unto writing; which maketh the Holy Scriptures to be most necessary, those former ways of God’s revealing his will unto his people being now ceased (emphasis ours).
Proclaim the Scripture…not radar imagery.
