Article 19 Climate Change?



The second angel poured out his bowl of God’s judgment into the sea, and it became blood like that of a dead man; and every living thing in the sea died. Revelation 16:3

There is a big controversy raging right now about climate change. I will not get into who is right or wrong in this, because there is a climate change coming that will render all opinions irrelevant on the matter. It is what the Bible teaches will happen in the last generation before Christ returns, the beginning of which started when Israel returned to its homeland and reformed itself once again as a nation.

No matter what progress we have made or will make in global warning, the generation we are in right now will see the incredible destruction of this world, including its climate. As described in the book of Revelation, our fresh water streams, lakes, and reservoirs will become polluted and poisoned beyond any measure of clean up. Our oceans will lose at least 1/3 of their sea life, and then eventually 100% of what’s left. Just think of the stench of millions upon millions of dead sea-life washing up on our shores. A house on Malibu Beach will be a nightmare to live in not a luxury.

What will cause most of this tragedy according to the Scriptures? It will come about for the most part because of the many wars that will occur between nations throughout the world. The nuclear exchanges alone will render the oceans, rivers, and lakes foul-smelling and unusable. Without sea life to draw from for food or clean water to drink it will be impossible to survive long. Fortunately before we all perish, Jesus returns to stop all of this and save those who have put their trust in God. The rest will be judged accordingly.

The point is, these catastrophes are coming and will happen within our generation according to Scriptures. We just don’t know how long this generation is.

In view of this, perhaps we should work more on changing the spiritual climate of our hearts and minds toward God and others, rather than changing a world climate that will have no relevance in the last days.
