Earthquake in Haiti:

 

Judgment or Geology?

 by

Karen Pansler-Lam, J.D.  

 

What is the Biblical truth about natural disasters?  

Are earthquakes judgments on the wicked?    

Is Haiti cursed?

 

Is Pat Robertson right about the earthquake in Haiti? Is Haiti cursed? Was the earthquake God’s judgment on the Haitians for making a pact with the devil in 1791? 

Is the Haiti consul to Brazil, George Samuel Antoine, right that the earthquake that hit his country may have been caused by voodoo?

Are earthquakes acts of God or merely the shifting of the earth along geologic faults?

 

Are natural disasters deliberate acts of God or only random acts of nature?

 

What is the Biblical truth about natural disasters?  Are they judgments on the wicked?

 

Before we begin a study of Biblical natural disasters, let me state that I am a 1998 graduate of Regent University School of Law, which was founded by Pat Robertson in Virginia Beach, Virginia.  However, I did not attend Regent University because I am a follower of Robertson.  In fact, sometimes I disagree with Robertson. But I wanted to attend a Christian law school.  And I received an excellent legal education that trained me to study the highest law - God’s Law.  My legal training has been invaluable in interpreting God’s Law.

 

Now before we can judge whether the earthquake was Divine judgment on Haiti for practicing voodoo, we must have a thorough knowledge of God. Unfortunately, there is a famine of the knowledge of God across this nation.  Sadly, professing Christians support their religious opinions with emotion and imagination instead of Biblical instruction. They are willfully ignorant.  In fact, the average professing Christian rarely quotes Scripture to support his beliefs, and, if he does, the Scripture is often taken out of context and misinterpreted. To repeat, modern Christians are woefully ignorant of God’s Law. 

 

Like the ancient Bereans, we must search the Scriptures daily to know the truth (Acts 17:11).  And like the apostle Paul, we must reason with people out of the Scriptures (Acts 17:2).  As you study the Divine Word, pray that God gives you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him (Ephesians 1:17).

 

Listen, if a lawyer argues his case in a court of law based on emotion, opinion and imagination instead of law, he will be judged ignorant and incompetent. Therefore, any Christian who argues his beliefs on emotion and opinion and imagination without arguing God’s Law is woefully ignorant and incompetent.  It is vain babbling.

 

So, was the earthquake God’s judgment on the Haitians for making a pact with the devil in 1791 and practicing voodoo?

 

 

Voodoo is Devil Worship

 

What is voodoo?  Let’s look at a few sources:

 

1. Voodoo or Vaudoux (Creole French, vaudoux, a negro sorcerer).  Voodoo is the name given to certain magical practices, superstitions and secret rites prevalent among the Negroes of the West Indies, notably in the republic of Haiti.  Serpent-worship and obscene rites involving the use of human blood, preferably that of a white child, were considered features of this religion.  (Encyclopedia Britannica, 1938)

 

2. Voodoo is a class of mysterious rites or practices, of the nature of sorcery, witchcraft, or conjuration, prevalent among the Negroes of the West Indies and the southern U.S., and probably of African origin.  (The New Century Dictionary, 1948)

 

Simply put, voodoo is sorcery and serpent-worship. The Devil appeared to Eve in the form of a serpent.  And Revelation mentions “that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan” (Revelation. 20:2).  So, voodoo is devil worship.  And devil worshippers hate God.

 

 

God’s Law and Judgment

 

Evil men understand not judgment: 

but they that seek the Lord understand all things.

Proverbs 28:5

 

 

As stated earlier, in order to determine whether the earthquake is God’s judgment on the Haitians for making a pact with the devil and practicing voodoo, we need a thorough knowledge of God and His ways. And true Christians consider the Bible as the only authentic and authoritative source of the knowledge of God.  Because of its Divine authority it is the primary source for Biblical truths. Therefore, this message will only cite the Bible as its source for Divine Law. 

 

We must search the Scriptures to know the truth about God and His ways. For instance, the prophet Jeremiah instructs us in the leading attributes of God: “But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the Lord which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the Lord” (Jeremiah 9:24).  Notice that God exercises judgment.

 

Judgment may mean a judicial decision, or justice.  And judgment may mean a Divine decree or sentence: “And I will utter my judgments against them touching all their wickedness, who have forsaken me, and have burned incense unto other gods, and worshipped the works of their own hands” (Jeremiah 1:16).  In this case, punishment is regarded as inflicted by Divine sentence for the wickedness of forsaking the Lord God and worshipping false gods.

 

For the purpose of this message, we will focus on judgment meaning a Divine decree or sentence inflicted by Divine sentence for the wickedness of forsaking the Lord.  And we know that God’s judgments are just because He forewarns us of judgment if we break His commandments.

 

First, in the Old Testament, God commanded the Israelites to have no other gods before Him:

 

“Thou shalt have no other gods before me.  Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me” (Exodus 20:3, 5).

 

“He that sacrificeth unto any god, save unto the Lord only, he shall be utterly destroyed” (Exodus 22:20). 

 

Later, in the New Testament, Jesus commands all peoples and nations:

 

“Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.  This is the first and great commandment” (Matthew 22:37, 38). 

 

And Jesus warns all cities who refuse to hear and obey the Gospel:

 

“And he said unto them, In what place soever ye enter into an house, there abide till ye depart from that place.  And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, it shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city” (Mark 6: 10 –12).

 

Modern Christians focus on the lovingkindness of God, but ignore the judgment of God.  Indeed the Lord God is longsuffering “not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (II Peter 3:9).   But God is angry with the wicked every day (Psalms 7:11).

 

And modern Christians are ignorant of God’s righteousness. Modern Christians establish their own righteousness. They do not submit to the righteousness of God.  “For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.  For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted unto the righteousness of God” (Romans 10:2, 3).

 

Righteousness is obedience to God’s Law.  Unquestionably, God commands us to worship Him only: “I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me.”  Yet God is merciful and forewarns us that judgment will come on us if we forsake Him. 

 

 

Natural Disasters, or Acts of God, in the Old Testament

 

Clearly, God commands us to submit to His righteous Law.  And those who disobey are sentenced to judgment.  So, are natural disasters God’s judgment, or only acts of nature? 

 

Though natural disasters such as earthquakes may be produced by natural causes, they are under the control and direction of Providence. This is what the prophets teach. This is what true Christians believe (Psalms 68:8; 104:32; Job 26:9-14; Exodus 19:18).  There are no Old Testament Scriptures to refute this truth.

 

In the Old Testament, the first mention of a natural disaster, or act of God, is the Flood recorded in Genesis chapter 6:

 

5 And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

6   And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
7 And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. 

8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord.

 

In this case, Noah was saved because of his righteousness. And God commanded him to build an ark and take both clean and unclean animals so that they would repopulate the earth.  Moreover, Noah and his wife and their three sons and their wives were saved from the Flood so they would replenish the earth: “Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth” (Genesis 9:1). To repeat, God saved Noah because of his righteousness.

 

Remember that God never promised not to destroy mankind again.  God promised Noah: “And I will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth” (Genesis 9:11).  Of course, the rainbow is God’s token of this covenant.

 

The next natural disaster, or act of God, mentioned in the Bible is the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.  Because of the wickedness of these cities, the Lord God decided to send judgment on the people. But Abraham stood before God, “Wilt thou also destroy the righteous with the wicked?” (Genesis 18:23).  And Abraham pleaded with God not to destroy the righteous with the wicked:  “Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?”  In the end, Abraham persuaded God not to destroy the wicked cities if there were ten righteous people found there.  You know the rest of the story: ten righteous could not be found.  “Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven; And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground” (Genesis 19:24, 25).  Because of the wickedness of Sodom and Gomorrah, God sent judgment on them. The cities were destroyed by natural disasters: brimstone and fire. Irrefutably, these natural disasters were acts of God and acts of judgment.

 

Unquestionably, God would have destroyed the righteous with the wicked if Abraham had not pleaded with Him.

 

Next let’s talk about the ten plagues sent by God upon Pharaoh and Egypt as recorded in Exodus. After Joseph died, the children of Israel “were fruitful, and increased abundantly, and multiplied, and waxed exceeding mighty; and the land was filled with them.  Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph” (Exodus 1: 7, 8).  The king feared that the Israelites would grow mighty and fight against Egypt, so he enslaved them and made their lives bitter with hard bondage. After the king of Egypt died, the children of Israel cried to the Lord: “And it came to pass in process of time, that the king of Egypt died: and the children of Israel sighed by reason of the bondage, and they cried, and their cry came up unto the God by reason of the bondage. And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.  And God looked upon the children of Israel, and God had respect unto them” (Exodus 2:23 - 25).

 

In answer to their cries, God sent a deliverer – Moses.  Moses was to deliver the Israelites from the oppression of Egypt and lead them to the Promised Land.  Moses and his brother Aaron repeatedly went before Pharaoh and proclaimed:  “Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, Let my people go, that they may hold a feast unto me in the wilderness.” However, Pharaoh hardened his heart and increased the Israelites’ burdens. And God spoke unto Moses: “Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, I am the Lord, and I will bring you out from under the burdens of the Egyptians, and I will rid you out of their bondage, and I will redeem you with a stretched out arm, and with great judgments” (Exodus 6:6).

 

And we know that God hardened Pharaoh’s heart and performed many signs and wonders so that Moses would lead the Israelites “out of the land of Egypt by great judgments”   (Exodus 7:4).  The purpose of the signs and wonders was to punish the Egyptians so they would know that “I am the Lord” (Exodus 7:5).  The judgments that God sent were: 1) all the water turned to blood; 2) plague of frogs; 3) plague of lice; 4) plague of flies; 5) death of cattle; 6) boils on man and beast; 7) thunder and hail, and fire; 8) plague of locusts, 9) plague of darkness; and 10) the death of the firstborn.  Notice that one of the judgments on the Egyptians was thunder and hail, and fire.

 

And when God delivered the Israelites and fulfilled His promise to make them a great nation, He gave them laws for judgment, or justice.  These laws are written in the Law, or the first five books of the Bible.  For example, “He that smiteth a man, so that he die, shall be surely put to death” (Exodus 21:12).  So, under the old covenant (old testament), the people were given laws, commandments, and statutes.  And the person who disobeyed was judged and given a sentence of judgment.  Moreover, if the nation of Israel rebelled against the Lord, He sent judgments upon them for being a rebellious and stiff-necked people.

 

Clearly, in the Old Testament, God judged both the heathen and the Israelites for wicked rebellion by sending natural disasters, or acts of God.

 

But before leaving the Old Testament and discussing New Testament judgment, let’s talk about Job and Jonah.

 

Job was “perfect and upright, and one that feared God, and eschewed evil” (Job 1:1).  The Bible tells us that God allowed Satan to test Job’s faithfulness by many trials and tribulations.  One of which was the death of his sons and daughters when a great wind from the wilderness hit the eldest brother’s house where they were eating and drinking.  And the great wind caused the house to fall upon them and killed them. In this case, God makes it perfectly clear in His Word that these trials and tribulations were to test Job’s faithfulness.  They were not judgments for wickedness.  However, Job did question God.  And God reproved Job.  And Job repented: “Therefore have I uttered that I understood not; things too wonderful for me, which I knew not…Wherefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes” (Job 42:3,6).  After Job repented, the Lord God gave Job twice as much as he had before. In this case, Job was a righteous man whose faith was tested.

 

The true story of Jonah teaches the mercifulness of God if we repent of our wickedness. God called Jonah to pronounce judgment against Nineveh, the capital city of the Assyrian Empire: “Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me” (Jonah 1:2). And we know that Jonah ran from the call of the Lord and was swallowed by a great fish.  And Jonah cried out to God, and the Lord spoke to the fish and it vomited Jonah out upon dry land.   And God called Jonah the second time to go to Nineveh and he went to Nineveh and cried: “Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown”(Jonah 3:4). Thankfully, because of Jonah’s preaching, the citizens of Nineveh repented of their wicked ways and turned to the Lord.  As a result, God withheld the disaster He had threatened against the city.  In this case, the wicked repented and God withheld judgment.

 

In conclusion, natural disasters in the Old Testament were a pronouncement of judgment against the wicked. And it was only because Abraham interceded on behalf of the righteous in Sodom and Gomorrah that Lot and his wife and daughters were spared the wrath of God.  Hence, natural disasters, or acts of God, are sentences of judgment on the wicked.  And if there is no intercessor, the righteous may be destroyed with the wicked.  However, for the righteous, natural disasters are trials of faith, as in the case of Job.

This message will not be an exhaustive study of all the earthquakes mentioned in the Bible.  However, please study the above and others not listed.

 

 

Earthquakes in the Old Testament

 

As we just learned, God sent natural disasters in ancient days as judgment against the wicked, except in the case of righteous Job, or if the wicked repented.  And sometimes He sent earthquakes. According to the Bible, when the earth quakes, it is a demonstration of the greatness and majesty of the Lord God.  “The earth shook, the heavens also dropped at the presence of God: even Sinai itself was moved at the presence of God, the God of Israel” (Psalm 68:8).  Earthquakes demonstrate the power and the glory and majesty of our omnipotent Creator.  He created the earth and has the power to destroy the earth to punish the wicked.

 

God cannot allow sin to go unpunished.  His attribute of perfect justice demands it. 

 

For instance, the Book of Numbers records God’s vengeance on Korah and others who rebelled against Moses and Aaron.  God caused the earth to open and swallow up the rebels and their houses (Numbers 16). 

 

And Isaiah prophesied to the city of Ariel, or Jerusalem: “Thou shalt be visited of the Lord of hosts with thunder, and with earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire” (Isaiah 29:6).  God was sending these judgments because they turned away from the Lord to worship false gods. 

 

And the prophet Amos alludes to the earthquake as judgment that he foretold (Amos 1:1).

 

And the prophet Nahum pronounces the impending judgment and destruction and desolation of Nineveh, the capital city of the Assyrian nation.  Jonah had preached repentance to Nineveh, and the people repented, but soon backslid into their old sins.  Nahum warns them of the wrath of God: “The Lord is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the Lord hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet . . .The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt, and the earth is burned at his presence, yea, the world, and all that dwell therein.  Who can stand before his indignation? and who can abide in the fierceness of his anger?  his fury is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by him” (Nahum 1: 3, 5, 6).

 

Though earthquakes may be produced by natural causes, they are under the control and direction of Providence.  Earthquakes are acts of God.

 

 

Earthquakes in the New Testament

 

Now, what about earthquakes in the New Testament?

 

The first earthquake mentioned in the New Testament occurred at the crucifixion of Christ:  “Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost.  And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many. Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God” (Matthew 27:50-54).

 

Unquestionably, this earthquake was not a result of natural causes.  This earthquake expressed God’s anger against the wicked murder of His Son. It also demonstrated the power and greatness of God.

 

And Matthew records that when Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to Jesus’ tomb, “there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it” (Matthew 28:2).

 

And Acts records an earthquake occurred when Paul and Silas were jailed at Philippi. At midnight, when they were praying and singing praises unto God, suddenly there was a great earthquake so that the foundations of the prison were shaken.  Immediately, all the doors were opened, and their bands were loosed.  This earthquake was a demonstration of God’s power and anger that His apostles were jailed.  The earthquake caused the jailer to tremble and fall down before Paul and Silas, and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” And they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house” (Acts 16: 25-34). Then the jailer took Paul and Silas to his house and the apostles preached the Word of God.

 

The Book of Revelation also talks about earthquakes as expressions of God’s wrath (Rev. 6:12, 8:5, 11:13, 11:19, 16:18).

 

 

Earthquake in Haiti

Is Pat Robertson right about the earthquake in Haiti? Is Haiti cursed? Was the earthquake God’s judgment on the Haitians for making a pact with the devil in 1791? 

Is the Haiti consul to Brazil, George Samuel Antoine, right that the earthquake that hit his country may have been caused by voodoo?

To determine whether the earthquake is God’s judgment on the Haitians for making a pact with the devil and practicing voodoo, we need the facts about Haiti and voodoo:

1. On 14 August 1791, a black slave and witch doctor named Boukman led the slaves in a voodoo ritual. They sacrificed a pig and drank its blood to form a pact with the devil, whereby they agreed to serve the spirits of the island for 200 years in exchange for freedom from the French. The slave rebellion commenced on 22 August 1791, and after 13 years of conflict, the slaves won their independence. On 1 January 1804 they declared Haiti the world's first independent black republic. An iron statue of a pig stands in Port-au-Prince to commemorate the "Boukman Contract". Since independence, Haiti has been in a continual state of political struggle and wracked with poverty. http://jmm.aaa.net.au/articles/11197.htm

2. Unaware he was being recorded, the consul of Haiti in Brazil, George Samuel Antoine, told Brazilian TV network SBT that the earthquake that hit his country may have been caused by voodoo. "I think it has to do with messing so much with voodoo, I don't know what it is ...." Antoine also said that " the African himself has a curse. Everywhere there are Africans it's ....." 

http://www.brazzilmag.com/component/content/article/81-january-2010/11701-        haiti-consul-in-brazil-blames-quake-on-voodoo-and-curse-africans-have.html

3. In 2003 the Haitian government made voodoo an official religion.

 

4. Christian Aid reported recently (14 August), "One ministry spokesman in northern Haiti said five of its pastors had been murdered recently. He blamed it on the strong influence of Voodoo in the area. No other details were available." This report, from a highly trusted and reliable source, is being further investigated.   http://jmm.aaa.net.au/articles/11197.htm

 

5. Haitians who immigrate to the United States bring voodoo - devil worship - to our Christian nation. New Orleans is especially known for its large Haitian voodoo population. 

   

 

Judgment

 

God is holy and just. He has given us laws, statutes, and commandments that we must obey.  If we break His Law, He judges us and pronounces a sentence of judgment.  However, He is longsuffering and pleads with us to repent before He disciplines or punishes, but judgment will come sooner or later.  If not while we are living, then when we shall all stand before the Judgment Seat of Christ  (Revelation 20: 11- 15).

 

And, as discussed earlier, God commands that we have no other gods before Him: “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.  This is the first and great commandment.”  

 

Irrefutably, voodoo is open rebellion against God’s commandment.  Voodoo is sorcery.  Voodoo is serpent-worship.  Voodoo is devil worship.

 

In fact, Isaiah prophesies a judgment of doom on those who practice sorcery in 47:9 - 15.

 

9       But these two things shall come to thee in a moment in one day, the loss of children, and widowhood: they shall come upon thee in their perfection for the multitude of thy sorceries, and for the abundance of thine enchantments.

10   For thou hast trusted in thy wickedness: thou hast said, None seeth me.  Thy wisdom and thy knowledge, it hath perverted thee; and thou hast said in thine heart, I am, and none else beside me.

11   Therefore shall evil come upon thee; thou shalt not know from whence it riseth: and mischief shall fall upon thee; thou shalt not be able to put it off: and desolation shall come upon thee suddenly, which thou shalt not know.

12   Stand now with thine enchantments, and with the multitiude of thy sorceries, wherein thy hast laboured from thy youth; if so be thou shalt be able to profit, if so be thou mayest prevail.

13   Thou art wearied in the multitiude of thy counsels.  Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee.

14    Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver themselves from the power of the flame: there shall not be a coal to warm at, nor fire to sit before it.

15    Thus shall they be unto thee with who thou hast laboured, even thy merchants, from thy youth:  they shall wander every one to his quarter; none shall save thee.

   

Isaiah proclaims that sorcery cannot save the wicked from the judgment of God.

   

 

Hear, O Haiti: Repent!

 

Clearly, God’s Law pronounces a judgment of doom on the wicked.  Devil worshippers are doomed to earthly destruction and eternal damnation.   

 

“He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone” (Revelation 21:7,8).

 

Hear, O Haiti: Repent!

 

“Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.  For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie” (Revelation 22:14, 15).

 

Hear, O Haiti: Will you spend eternity in hell with The Old Serpent – the Devil?

 

“And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever” (Revelation 20:10).

 

Hear, O Haiti: Repent!
