News reports all over the world are reporting the growing terror of the earth's continued warming. Heat records are being broken, the oceans are warming, killing millions of sea creatures. Lands are being scorched, properties destroyed. Ungodly scientists are afraid, blaming this issue on climate change, as the rivers and lakes dry up, as the drought increases, clean drinkable water is becoming a scarcity in places, and power grids are on the brink of breaking down.
Students and believers in the Word of God, should not fear or be dismayed. Everything we are witnessing with our own eyes is being fulfilled as prophesied thousands of years ago. The world is heating up because of sin. As sin increases so do the heatwaves. The heat is like a fragrance released from sin. The heat is preparing the earth for the temporary reign of Satan where there are no blessings from the true God of plush trees, grass, beautiful flowers, calm fresh winds. No, in the devil's world is nothing but standards of industry-concrete, hard rocks, dirt, scorched land, iron steel aboads, nothing soft or pliable, nothing comforting.
Fire is one of the conditions of the end times. Jesus's words confirm this, "I have come to ignite a fire on the earth..." Luke 12:49
See the truth of this. When a person gets angry, they become "heated.' And today, everyday, enraged people are killing others. Fulfilling several other scriptures:
"Do you think that I have come to bring peace to the earth? No, I tell you, but division. From now on, five in one househild will be divided, three against two and two against three. They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law." Luke 12:51-53.
"If those days had not been cut short, no one would survive, but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened." Matthew 24:22
"This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy. Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good. Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God. Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away." 2 Timothy 3:1-5
"Behold, the Lord will empty the earth and make it desolate, and he will twist its surface and scatter its inhabitants. And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the slave, so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the creditor, so with the debtor. The earth shall be utterly empty and utterly plundered; for the LORD has spoken this word. The earth mourns and withers; the world languishes and withers; the highest people of the earth languish. The earth lies defiled under the its inhabitants; for they have transgressed the laws, violated the statutes, broken the everlasting covenant." Isaiah 24:1-23
"For our God is a consuming fire." Hebrews 12:29
Saints of the true and living God, do not fear the righteous judgment of God. Though we may perish physically, we should have hope in the only One who can revive and restore us. Jesus did not promise sunshine and comfort, no He promised to help and keep us, in the trials. Our time on this earth is temporary, thank God! Believe and trust and obey our Lord Jesus Christ. Do not fear Satan or men who can kill our bodies, no, fear the Lord who can put our bodies and souls in the very real, eternal hell.
