Ears to Hear…
We are made to hear voice of God.

On December 26, 2004, a tsunami devastated many regions of Asia. Over 30,000 people died in Sri Lanka alone. The total count of dead was over 300,000. Today scientists are working on a warning system that could alert people to safety before another tsunami moves inland. If such a system had been in place on December 26, 2004, death count would have been reduced significantly.
Prior warning of imminent disaster is a God send. Additional minutes given in face of impending disaster can shape destinies and preserve lives. A few additional minutes can have eternal repercussions when given to someone before destruction hits. Advanced warning is a good thing.
This brings me to a question: Is it possible for human beings to receive a warning without hearing an external warning device? Can people be warned of impending disaster by some internal sense or intuitive “check” in their inner being? Does this sound absurd? Before you delete this page, listen to this.
On May 12, 2005, Russian paper Pravda reported a news article entitled, “Profound knowledge of animal instincts to help humans predict horrible natural disasters.” The article talks about movement of animals throughout regions hit by tsunami, just before waters pounded inlands. Since ancient times man has been recording mysterious movements of animals before impending disasters occur. For example, an ancient manuscript dated 2000 years before Christ records weasels suddenly disappearing from their usual habitats in Crete shortly before a very powerful earthquake rocked island.
In 1975 snakes suddenly appeared on surface of ground in dead of winter in China. The local authorities treated such phenomena as a harbinger of a coming earthquake. As it turned out, a mammoth earthquake, measuring 7.3 on Richter scale rocked area. Many lives were spared because they had evacuated their homes earlier. During WWII, London residents paid attention to cats and dogs’ behavior before air raids. Their unusual behavior served as prior warning that German bombers were coming.
Eye witness accounts reported seeing following, just before 2004 tsunami hit: In India, large flocks of antelopes began fleeing coastal areas towards nearest hills. Elephants were reported as trumpeting, breaking chains and escaping inland in Thailand. Flamingos were seen leaving lowlands, flying in direction of mountainous areas. Employees of a Malaysian zoo noticed that all animals had a very strange way of behavior—the majority of zoo animals hid in their shelters and refused to go out. While tsunami disaster killed over 30,000 in Sri Lanka, almost all local elephants, deer and other wild animals survived monstrous attack of tidal waves. Only one wild boar of 2,000 animals of an Indian reserve was killed in 2004 tsunami disaster, Pravda article reports.
