Are Tornadoes a Sign of Jesus’ Coming? Biblical References to Tornadoes

A wedge tornado, nearly a mile wide. This tornado hit Binger, Oklahoma.



I’ve never seen a tornado up close. But we have all seen their destruction and heard the horror stories.  They really put the fear into you—the fear of God!  I really think tornadoes are God’s way of showing us His power.  Every time a storm comes, or I hear of earthquakes, or any natural disasters, I think of Jesus’ return—that He is coming soon.  

 Do you think the increased frequencies of tornadoes are a sign of His coming?  I do.  I know that we have always had tornadoes.  But I think there are more of them now.  The charts that I have seen indicate that. In the last century there has been a slow, steady increase in their frequency, and of their total destruction.  If anyone would care to supply that information I would really appreciate it. I had trouble coming up with a good chart online, but I know it must be out there.

 The key thing to remember about the signs of His coming is that there will be an increase in them.  Jesus pointed out to us that it will be like birth pangs or labor pains (Matt. 24:8).  Just as the pains of child birth increase in intensity and are closer together means that the baby is soon to be born, in the same way, when the signs of His coming increase and are more frequent, this means that His coming is nearer. 

 Here are a few references to tornadoes; and it sure seems to indicate that they are a sign of His coming, mostly because, like earthquakes, they are more frequent than they have been in years past.  


Job 37:9

Out of the south cometh the whirlwind: and cold out of the north.


 Prov 1:27-28

When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you. Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:


Prov 10:25

As the whirlwind passeth, so is the wicked no more: but the righteous is an everlasting foundation.


Nah 1:3

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.


Isa 66:15

15 See, the Lord is coming with fire,

and his chariots are like a whirlwind;

he will bring down his anger with fury,

and his rebuke with flames of fire.


Luke 21:11

11 And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven.


Joel 2:30

30 I will show wonders in the heavens

and on the earth,

blood and fire and billows of smoke.


Isa 29:6

6 the Lord Almighty will come

with thunder and earthquake and great noise,

with windstorm and tempest and flames of a devouring fire.


Tornadoes are soooo scary to me. 

But they are awesome! 

And in a way I love them, because they signal to me that He is coming very soon.  

And just like a tornado, He is coming with great, awesome power!!!


Are you ready for Jesus’ return?

    Given the hoirstical record, and given that we know that CO2 causes everything, obviously CO2 reduces deaths from tornados. Look at the evidence!Best,Frank

    Thank you for posting this site and awesome verses. Although things are more chaotic, it is a comfort to know our Lord is in it all. One day we will understand His ways.

  3. Yes, and in all the storms, He is always there waiting to help us.

    Good day, I would love to agree, but the word quotes Jesus of speaking of earthquakes, not tornadoes.
