Did you noticed the rain clouds forming?
Have you observed the rain pouring?
Did you hear the heaven roaring with thunder?

At noonday today the heaven poured upon the earth,
And then it roared with mighty thunderous voice.
Only but praying souls have recognized its lightning.

Thank you Lord for choosing the day.
You have gathered the days in Your hands.
And when the time comes for the sun to shine,
Earth's vapors shall gather up Your doorstep.

[Obadiah 1:12-16]

Don't look down on your brothers in the day of their disaster, and don't rejoice over the people of the land in the day of their destruction. Don't speak proudly in the day of distress.

Don't enter into the gates of people in the day of their calamity to take advantage of their condition. Don't look down on their affliction in the day of their calamity, neither seize their wealth on the day of their calamity.

Don't stand in the crossroads to cut off those of his who escape. Don't deliver up those of his who remain in the day of distress. For the day of the Lord is near all the nations! As you have done, it will be done to you. Your deeds will return upon your own head. For as you have drunk on my holy mountain, so will all the nations drink continually. Yes, they will drink, swallow down, and will be as though they had not been.

[2 Samuel 22:7] In their distress they called upon Me, and cried to Me their God: and I did hear their voice out of My temple, and their cry did enter into My ears.

[Isaiah 6:8] If you heard the Lord's voice saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” then arise and answer, “Here I am. Send me!”

Aren't Nebaioth, Kedar, Adbeel, and Mibsam the names of the firstborn among the sons of Ishmael? Has not God enlarged your tribes and has He not blessed you so much with the precious wealth of the desert? Yet why is it that while your rulers and leaders are abundantly enjoying the fruits of the blessings, your own people are crying out to God for change? Have your kings been at ease from their duties to God and to their responsibilities to the people? Have they grown to settle on the lees of material prosperity, and have not been emptied from vessel to vessel? Is it because they have neither gone into captivity that their taste remains only in themselves, and their scent is not changed? Isn't it that to whom much authority is given, much is also required of them? Isn't it also that the people have learned to wallow in the dregs of their kings?

Now therefore behold, the days have come and God has send forth things and events that shall pour off the vessels of kings to empty them and to pour the people out of the dregs.

To the council of the tribes of Ishmael: God is also shaking your vessels, therefore rise up from your lees as well for God is calling you. Ishmael had four firstborn sons, therefore choose among you four good men of character and anoint them as your messengers. Send the four to your brother who rules in the land where his own people have turned against him. God is setting the sun down on his rulership and he mostly needs your help. Be kind and gentle to him for he is in a very difficult situation. Be true brothers to him and you will persuade him. When he shall peacefully settle his heart, his land and his people will need a new leader, thus you shall help his land peacefully choose for their new leader. God be with you.
