He is unsatisfied with mankind... but then why all the disastrous hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico and mid-west area of the US... ?
a Jealous God (Exodus 34:14)! Rest assured, He will not suffer the offense of being ignored (Ezekiel 39:23; Matthew 25:41). But you have to remember, God gave us free will to choose to love and obey Him, or to choose to love and obey sin:
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
