Mexico Hail Storm

No Comment Yet

Guadalajara, Mexico: Up to five feet of hail were dropped over night on the Mexican city during a recent storm. The city is home to five million residents. Guadalajara is located north of Mexico City. The city’s elevation is approximately 5,100 feet above sea level.

Revelation 16:21 And great hailstones, about one hundred pounds each, fell from heaven on people; and they cursed God for the plague of the hail, because the plague was so severe.

In the original Greek, the weight of the hailstone is a talent.

ταλαντιαῖος (talantiaios)– A talent of silver: approximately 100 pounds.

100 Pound Hail?

•1 gallon of water = 8.35 pounds

•100 pounds of water = approximately 12 gallons

•12 gallons = 1.6 cubic feet = 18” sphere (approximate)

Hail and Updraft

•Pea  24 mph

•Nickel  46 mph

•Golf Ball  64 mph

•Baseball  81 mph

•Softball  103 mph

Largest Hail in United States (Nebraska) 5” across

Largest Hail in World (Middle East) 10” across

The event above described in Revelation 16 is during the last third of tribulation judgments. The context is the bowl judgments. The event that occurred in Mexico is not a fulfillment of Revelation 16.

Granted, these were not 100 pound hailstones observed in Mexico. The weather event in Mexico demonstrates there is clearly enough water for the volume of hail described in Revelation 16.

As of July 2019, We are not in the tribulation. The context of the tribulation is global. When the seven year tribulation rolls around, one will not have to ask the question, “Are we there yet?”

Job 38:22-23 Have you entered the storehouses of the snow, or have you seen the storehouses of the hail, which I have reserved for the time of trouble, for the day of battle and war?

About Paul Lehr

Paul Lehr is a Speech Pathologist and home health provider. The majority of his work focuses on swallowing disorders in neurologically impaired patients. He has been a business owner for the past 20+ years. Paul earned his BS in Speech Pathology and Audiology from Oklahoma State University. His MA was completed in Speech Pathology at Oklahoma State University. When Paul’s son was born prematurely in 2003, there was lots of support from family and friends. Keeping up with phone calls was too much. So he provided e-mails with updates on health and well-being. In time, his son was healthy and came home. The e-mails stopped but Paul was encouraged to keep writing. Three years later, Paul was asked to assist in writing a Sunday school curriculum. The lessons were well received by the local body and on the church website. Again, he was encouraged to keep writing. Next, Paul taught a Sunday School class for junior high and high school students. He would share notes with others from the class he was teaching. In 2010, a young man at a local church encouraged Paul to start a blog. The website focuses on topical studies such as creation, God’s Appointed Holidays and Feasts, the Gospel of Jesus Christ, end times prophecy, ancient Hebrew cultural customs, the Prophet Isaiah, and various topical studies. Three years later, Paul’s 10 year old son told me, “Dad, you need to do updates on how the news is tied to the Bible.” The “Trend Update” was born. In the spring of 2016, a friend and fellow Boy Scout father encouraged Paul to start a YouTube channel. His friend thought it was a natural fit considering the content and subscribers from the website. God’s prophetic words have reached millions in over 190 countries. Isaiah 55:11 So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; it will not return to Me empty, without accomplishing what I desire, and without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it. That same Boy Scout father would later introduce Paul to the movies of Trey Smith and the God in a Nutshell Project… Guest speak and presenter duties have focused on the topics of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in God’s Appointed Spring Feasts, Mystery Babylon, the antichrist, Ezekiel 38-39, and current events related to Bible prophecy. At this time, Paul would like to encourage each individual to learn about who God is. Because one way or another, we are all eternal. The issue is our destiny.
