What is the truth about “Climate Change”. The news media, politicians, scientists and weather experts (so called) are predicting terrible calamity due to man made climate change. They say, the weather being experienced in our country and world today, is due to carbon being released into the atmosphere by the burning of fossil fuels. Even cows are responsible for “Global Warming” so say the experts. It is obvious to everyone that events such as fires, floods, droughts, tornados, typhoons, hurricanes, and earthquakes seem to be getting more frequent and severe.
But the question remains, are these events the result of man made climate change, global warming, or is there another explanation. While it is true we can pollute the air we breath and the water we drink, but does man have the ability to control the weather? Does he have that much power? Is the earth going to be destroyed by “Climate Change” in the next ten or twelve years as some predict?
The only one able to control the weather is God himself. He is the Creator and the only one who has that kind of power. What would cause God to allow these devastating conditions? If we want to know the truth, we must consult God’s Word, The Bible. We need to hear what God has to say.
In the 6th chapter of Genesis, we find the reason for the flood in Noah’s day. “God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually” (Genesis 6:5 KJV). The judgment of God was in response to the wickedness of man. In the book of Isaiah, the Lord warned Israel of things to come because of their wickedness and transgressions against Him. “Thou shalt be visited of the Lord of hosts with thunder, and with earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire” (Isaiah 29:6 KJV). The people of Israel ignored these signs of coming judgment just as they did in Noah’s day. The wickedness of man is great once again on the earth. Evil is evident everywhere. We see millions of unborn children murdered every year by abortion, we see immorality accepted as normal in our society, we see the laws of God being flaunted, we see God’s name being blasphemed regularly and we see mankind rejecting God’s Son, the Savior of the world. Do we think God will not judge our nation as He has others?
I believe God is warning us today. His warnings are being ignored because people are believing man’s theories of global warming or climate change. The truth is to be found only in the Word of Truth, the Bible.
What can be done? The Bible says “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land”. (II Chronicles 7:14 KJV) God’s judgments will get worse if mankind continues in this folly. We need revival in this world today.
Dear friend, are you saved? Time is getting short. The Bible says “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved” (Romans 10:9 KJV).
