First, we turn to an update on the current situation facing America - by Joel Rosenberg:
As I discuss in-depth in the two-hour “Implosion Radio Special” — which will air on more than 700 radio stations this coming weekend — we live at a very dangerous moment in American history. It is a time when the Lord God Almighty is trying to get our attention and call us to repent of our sins and turn back to faith in Jesus Christ and back to reading and obeying the Bible. At the moment, we are far from God and far off track as a nation. Massive debt. Skyrocking murder and violent crime. More than 53 million abortions. The stain of pornography. The list of our sins is getting longer and longer each year. Yet the country has not yet woken up and realized that turning our collective backs on God is a recipe for judgment and disaster.
What’s more, too many pastors are refusing to preach clearly and Biblically on the need for American to repent and ask God for a sweeping revival. There are many ways God could use to shake us further and try to wake us up to our need to turn back to Christ. War. Terrorism. Financial collapse. Natural disasters, and so forth. As I noted in Implosion, hurricanes along the East Coast and Gulf Coast pose grave dangers for the U.S. and could be used by God to shake us to our core.

Big cities from Washington to Boston buttoned up on Sunday against the onslaught of a superstorm that could menace some 50 million people in the most heavily populated corridor in the nation, with forecasters warning New York could be in particular peril.
"The time for preparing and talking is about over," Federal Emergency Management Administrator Craig Fugate warned as Hurricane Sandy made its way up the Atlantic on a collision course with two other weather systems that could turn it into one of the most fearsome storms on record in the U.S. "People need to be acting now."
The USGS has recorded nearly 50 aftershocks from the 7.7-magnitude earthquake that rocked an island off Canada's west coast on Saturday night.
The largest aftershock, measuring 6.3, was recorded at 11:54 a.m. Other aftershocks ranged between 4.0 and 5.5.
The U.S. Geological Survey said the powerful temblor hit the Queen Charlotte Islands just after 8 p.m. local time Saturday at a depth of about 3 miles (5 kilometers) and was centered 96 miles (155 kilometers) south of Masset, British Columbia. It was felt across a wide area in British Columbia, both on its Pacific islands and on the mainland.
The Haida Gwaii region continues to feel the aftershocks of a violent earthquake measuring 7.7 that jolted British Columbia's north-central coast Saturday night, frightening residents and forcing many to temporarily leave their homes for higher ground ahead of a possible tsunami.
The numbers tell the story (below is just a random subset of the 50):
etc. x50. The largest appear to be in the 6.0 range; that's quite an aftershock.
Also Sunday, a minor earthquake has rattled Southern California, shaking buildings in downtown Los Angeles. The U.S. Geological Survey says the magnitude-3.9 quake struck at 8:24 a.m. and was centered about eight kilometres east-southeast of Santa Clarita, Calif.Shaking was felt across the Santa Clarita Valley, in downtown Los Angeles and in West Hollywood.There were no immediate reports of damage or injury.
