Chronology: Disasters to hit Indonesia since 2004

Alert Focus: The Fruit of Islam / Creation Groans Your prayers are requested please for God's will to be done with Indonesia. Indonesia is the nation that reportedly was responsible for 200,000 - 300,000 deaths in East Timor over 26 years, operates a corrupt legal system and allows its soldiers and Muslims to: cut heads off Christians; excise female sex organs with razor blades, torture prisoners with lit cigarettes, gang rape and electricity; apply one standard for Christians and another for Muslims; commit cowardly barbarous murders in West Papua; and according to many witnesses since 1964, has Australia marked on its maps as South Irian. - Geoff Pickering Jeremiah 23:19-20 "Behold, the storm of the LORD has gone forth in wrath, Even a whirling tempest; It will swirl down on the head of the wicked."The anger of the LORD will not turn back Until He has performed and carried out the purposes of His heart; In the last days you will clearly understand it.
