When the Towers Fall


Remembering Sept 11, 2001, the day the twin towers fell in New York City at the hands of terrorists flying their planes into the buildings killing over 2700 people, I can’t help remembering that a similar scene is mentioned in the Bible.

“In the day of great slaughter, when the towers fall, streams of water will flow on every high mountain and every lofty hill.” Isaiah 30:25 NIV

I can’t explain the ‘flowing streams of water’, but feel there must be some significance.

It never ceases to amaze me how biblical happenings are repeated in our lives today.

It is good to remember this, and that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Hebrews 13:8. NIV, even when the towers fall.

Happy Sunday

Remembering


September 11, 2001. Who can ever forget that fateful day when the twin towers fell in New York City due to a terrorist attack at 8:46 a.m. One of my grandsons had his eighteenth birthday that day and said his birthday would never be the same again. I was reading a passage in scripture this morning, Isaiah 30:25 “In the day of great slaughter, when the towers fall…” This had nothing to do with 9/11…or did it?
