For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water. But the heavens and the earth which are now preserved by the same word, are reserved for fire until the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. (2 Peter 3:5-7)
The Futility Of The Climate Agenda
Global warming is the focus of the world seeking a zero-emission climate to avert global catastrophe. It is believed and widely politicized the reckless actions of humanity destroying the world, leading to the total annihilation of man on earth. The Green Agenda pushes the doctrine of human wisdom’s capability of destroying its domain. Rooted in the pride of the arrogant heart of those who do not believe in God, the climate agenda seeks to convince the naïve world that man has the power to destroy his environment. Using data based on skewed perceptions of self-driven agendas, pundits for climate change seek to have their voices heard above the voice of reason and truth. The reality that many do not realize is what God says about climate change and the end of the world.
The Bible is not just a book about the divinity of God. There are many parts of the word of God that answer questions that concern people of every generation. Before modern science and technology, human pollution filled the air and desecrated the land. The 1970s were a time of global consciousness to make the world a better place. Walt Kelly’s famous Pogo cartoon shows his character standing in the middle of the Okefenokee Swamp with the caption, “We have met the enemy, and he is us.” Yes, man can make a mess of his world. The question is not whether humanity can defile the earth with pollution, but rather the question if it is in the power of human waste to destroy the planet. The answer is a resounding, “No!” There is nothing within man’s wisdom and power that will ever end the world. Using fear to drive people to a “green world” is nothing more than a tactic of a godless world.
Earth is man’s domain and will always be the residing place of humanity until God decides differently. Man will never live on the moon, much less on Mars. The counsel of the Creator determines the habitation of man. The earth will continue to exist and experience seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, and day and night. That will never change. Peter declared what men forget. The world was destroyed a long time ago, not by global warming but by global flooding. In the days of Noah, God looked at the hearts of men and saw nothing but wickedness. Ironically, the pollution of the heart destroyed the world when God brought a global flood that killed all life on earth except eight souls. Using the flood as a backdrop, Peter shows the world that exists is held together by the word of God. It will not change unless God says so. There will be a day of global warming, but it will not be warm – it will be so hot the universe itself will explode in one giant conflagration. Then, and only then, will the earth be destroyed.
Mankind can mess up his world, and that should not be. As the earth’s caretaker, he should take as good care of his environment as possible. To think that any generation has the power to destroy the world is a failed theology. The agenda of the climate alarmists and Green Deal doomsayers are not based on truth but the lie of human wisdom. God will not allow anyone to do what is in His power and will to do. When it comes time for the earth to end – God will speak. Then, those who did not believe in the Bible will realize another climate agenda. There will be a climate of joy and peace in heaven, and there will be a climate of darkness in a lake of fire. The best climate change a man can make is seeking salvation from God’s wrath. Spend more time changing your heart. That is where true pollution is found. Let the blood of Jesus Christ cleanse your heart.
