Global warming. The earth heaving. Signs in the sun, moon and stars. Men are lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God. Lawlessness abounds. Yes. The end is coming. But, if we are paying attention, God will direct us just as he directed the shepherds at Messiah’s birth. It has all been prophesized. If you don’t believe in prophecy, or the Bible then you will experience extreme heat–Sorry. Kind of blunt.
Have you ever heard someone jokingly say, “I brought you into this world, I can take you out” Ha Ha. The great architect of the universe could say the same. But he instead gave us a way out: “believe on Yashua, Messiah and you will be saved”. Just as the Hebrews who put blood on their door posts so the death angel would not come near to their home. Increasingly, science and archeology are proving the Bible to be true. Believe or not. Your choice. Check it out.
We have heard alot about a “God of Love and Mercy” in this generation and it was much needed after centuries of hell, fire and brimstone preaching. However, God does not change. You can scour the O.T. and find incidences such as Sodom and Gomorrah. And we also see his compassion on the women at the well, Rahab. We see God’s mercy when Esther was obedient and a whole nation of people were saved.
Then God sent Messiah to take the punishment for all our sin–we just have to repent and believe. Too hard? Too simple? From the very beginning, He gave us choices. You choose.
For me, I believe in global warming. And I believe in God. And as the songs says, “I have seen the lily push its way up through the stubborn sod,..for I believe in God.” Would you believe that I learned that song in a public high school some forty years ago.
As in the days of Jonah, I believe if the people will listen to the prophet, God will save their (our) nation.
II Peter 3:10 & 12
