Jerusalemites woke up to incessant downpour and hail, with 35 mm of precipitation falling in the capital since 3 am; eastern Israel streams also experience flooding.

Rescue teams were called early Thursday morning to dozens of homes and roads across Jerusalem after incessant downpour of rain and hail caused flooding throughout the capital.

Rescue teams aided civilians stuck with their vehicles in giant puddles created on roads, as well as residents whose homes were flooded in the neighborhoods of Mea Shearim, Katamon, Talpiot, Baka, Ramot, Shmuel HaNavi, Ras al-Amud and Jabel Mukaber.

Magen David Adom paramedics treated several people who suffered from mild hypothermia, as well as a woman lightly injured in a car crash in East Talpiot caused by the harsh weather conditions.

Flooding also occurred in eastern Israel streams. Judea and Samaria Police’s rescue unit warned hikers coming to see the floods not to enter the streams or try to cross them. Those interested in watching the floods could do so from the Ha’efes vantage point in the Metsoke Dragot area or from Highway 90 over the Darga stream (also known as Wadi Murabba’at) or the Tor stream, the police rescue unit said.

Local rain will continue falling in most parts of Israel during the day, possibly accompanied by isolated thunder storms.


How many disasters, crimes, events, does it take to get our attention? Jesus warned us ahead of time in Matthew 24:7; Luke 21:25-26; Revelation 6:12; 11:13; 16:18 what would happen. I pray that any person in Christ who reads this, is not troubled, but in peace.  Peace because Jesus keeps his promises, as told to us in His Word, because He is alive and watching now. Injustice and wickedness will be defeated and banished forever into the pits of hell. The saved, Christ’s elect, will be vindicated. Jesus is coming – are you ready?

And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed – Romans 13:11 (KJV).

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid – John 14:27 (KJV).

Say to them that are of a fearful heart, Be strong, fear not: behold, your God will come with vengeance, even God with a recompence; he will come and save you. Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped – Isaiah 35: 4-5 (KJV).

If there be any person unsaved who reads this, please see these phenomenonal events as God’s way of speaking to us, warning us. He has always used natural events to get our attention.  He is doing this because he is merciful, and wants to help us, so we can see our dependence on him.  Only Jesus can help us – only Jesus can sustain and deliver us. Are you ready to acknowledge that Jesus died on the cross for your sins today?  That HE and only he,  is the deliverer and redeemer?  The King of Kings?  What will it take? A bigger dust storm? more deaths? more floods? More rain? harsher winds? more devastation and destruction? I pray that this be the day of your salvation.

In the faithful Service of Jesus Christ,

“And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring ” Luke 21:11. 25 (KJV).
