Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them on the day of the wrath of the Lord. In the fire of his jealousy, all the earth shall be consumed; for a full and sudden end he will make of all the inhabitants of the earth. —Zephaniah 1:18
Climate change is going to destroy the earth! Or, is it global warming and the world is going to bake? Or were they right in the 1970’s that it was global cooling and we were going to freeze http://denisdutton.com/newsweek_coolingworld.pdf.
One thing is for sure according to the verse above is that no amount of money will deliver mankind from “the day of the wrath of the Lord.” The big thing today is that we must act now or the planet is going to be destroyed and so the idea is to tax the people more— http://www.kairoscanada.org/sustainability/climate-justice/keeping-fossil-fuels-in-the-ground-essential-to-curb-climate-change-briefing-paper-37/.
Can we trust these supposed scientists that are making these claims? I think not. We get a lot of snow and right off it is because of climate change. Well, I remember in my youth that there were winters where we got a lot of snow. Then, it is really hot and so that proves there is climate change. Well, I remember in my youth that we had droughts in this area and the water levels dropped greatly. Sometimes it truly appears that people live in the moment and do not remember the past very well at all. Of course, this is true. It can be seen in the very amnesiac view of history in general.
It is a perpetual lie that we are gradually going to heat up until the earth is uninhabitable. How do I KNOW this? Well, when you know the One who is in control of all things and know what He has to say in His Word, then a person can be absolutely sure in what is going to happen and it is not what is being portrayed by the ones communicating climate change.
When this planet is destroyed, and it will be, it will happen suddenly and immediately. The verse above says it will be “a full and sudden end.” In II Peter 3:12 we are told “That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat. But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells” (II Peter 3:12-13). No amount of taxation will stop that coming day and those who promote that the end is coming through climate change are using fear tactics to advance their agenda. What is their agenda? It is the ungodly agenda of all those who are in power now and that have been in the past who thirst for power over people instead of promoting the best interests for the people. It is about total control.
As followers of Jesus Christ we do not need to be anxious about world events. We KNOW who is in control and that He is working out all things according to His good will. We can trust Him fully.
Dear Father, I am grateful to know that Your word tells us what is to come and that we do not have to fall for the lies perpetuated among us. Help me to communicate what You have to say to a darkened world of false views. May I do this in Jesus’ authority and by the Holy Spirit’s power. May it be so!
