Any wonder why this area is suffering such a watery affliction? (excerpts):  Thai authorities have ordered a new evacuation of an industrial park north of the nation's capital, Bangkok, as the economic impact of ongoing floods worsened.  The move at the Nava Nakorn industrial estate in Pathum Thani is a big blow for several major companies with operations there including Casio, Saiko, Nestle and Toshiba.  The hardest hit firms were Honda and Toyota, which use Thailand as a major production base.  Both have been forced to stop all work there due to flooding of their facilities.  At least four other major industrial parks have been flooded, leaving upward of 100,000 employees idle and disrupting supply chains, especially in the automotive and electronic industries.  The Labor Ministry said that more than 260,000 people had lost jobs and 6,533 businesses nationwide had to close due to floods between October 10 - 12.  Thailand's Central Bank last week estimated the total cost of the floods could be 100 billion baht (about 33 billion US $).  The nationwide death toll rose to 307, mostly from drowning.  Outside the capital, thousands of people remain displaced and hungry residents were struggling to survive in half-submerged towns.  On Sunday, the military rescued people from the rooftops of flooded buildings in the swamped city Ayutthaya, one of the country's hardest hit.  At the same time, officials were expressing growing optimism that Bangkok would be spared thanks to the city's complex system of flood walls, canals, dykes and underground tunnels that help divert vast pools of runoff south into the Gulf of Thailand.    

Commentary:  If you will notice in the photo above, a vast majority of the people of Thailand worship Buddha (94.6%).  The Word of God has a lot to say about people worshipping idols made with hands and the Bible is full of examples of the consequences of worshipping anything or anyone, other than the true living God of all creation.  "The rest of the men that were not killed by these plagues did not repent of the work of their hands, that they should not worship devils and idols of gold, silver, brass, stone and wood, which cannot see, hear or walk" Revelation 9:20.  The Word of God is clear, that the nations that worship idols made with hands, such as Buddha, will suffer plagues.  This is what is happening.  We are living in the last days, friends, and the truth is, the wrath of God is being poured out on much of the world today.  These are God's warnings, that judgment is soon coming and everyone will be judged by God for what they have done while living here on earth (2 Corinthians 5:10).  "Today is the day of salvation" (2 Corinthians 6:2); tomorrow could be too late.  I invite you now to receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.  Once we leave this body, it is too late to make a decision for salvation.
