By Sword, By Famine, By Pestilence

It is recorded in Ezek. 6 that idolatrous Israel would "fall by the sword, by famine, and by pestilence" (v. 11). Thus, says YHWH, "I will spend my fury upon them" (v.12). The upshot of the fury: "And you shall know that I am YHWH, when their slain lie among their idols" (v. 13). Question. Do our naturalistic tendancies blind us from seeing and knowing YHWH when he works his sovereign will among us, especially when he sends his fury? Another related question. Are we functional deists?
