Only a very few, who understand Bible prophecy, recognize the most vital factor in our planet’s unpredictable weather and climate changes.
God Himself, in order to chastise and humble human beings to see the error of their ways, sometimes uses the weather.
No, it is not that every adverse weather event or shift in tectonic plates is God’s punishment on sinners. But there is no doubt that God can and does use the weather to achieve His righteous ends. And when He does, can even our best computer-based climate models recognise it? Not at all!
This lies completely outside their scope. Yet, in reality, sin and what God elects to do about it is a vital key to understanding the weather and its impact on humanity.
Your Bible reveals that human society will soon reach a time of all-consuming crisis, in which God must intervene to rescue the situation—to prevent mankind from destroying itself. Though human beings will continue to fail in their efforts to solve our fundamental problems without God, Scripture reveals the wonderful news that Jesus Christ will return to the earth to establish the world-ruling Kingdom of God (Matthew 24:3–13; 21–24, 29–31)!
The events leading up to that time will involve the most massive and far-reaching weather changes that can possibly be imagined, which will humble rebellious humanity and prepare for the establishment of a new age of peace and prosperity, under the loving rule of Jesus Christ, where all will learn to live God’s way (Revelation 6; 8).
The Apostle John describes one dramatic step of God’s intervention:
“Then the fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and power was given to him to scorch men with fire. And men were scorched with great heat, and they blasphemed the name of God who has power over these plagues; and they did not repent and give Him glory” (Revelation 16:8–9).
Human beings’ puny influence on their environment will be seen as nothing compared to God’s massive intervention.
Whatever the scope of anthropogenic global warming, it is this influence—one might call it theogenic global warming—that will shake humanity to an almost unimaginable degree. Yet we need not fear—God promises that faithful Christians who turn to Him will be protected from these mind-boggling events (Revelation 7).
You may not be able to turn down the world’s temperature by your own effort, but you can turn toward God and change your life for the better—in this life and for all eternity!
