It’s a thing one might accurately say is a prophetic paradox. Some even might claim it’s being two-faced, wishy-washy, or hypocritical. But, it is fact.
To declare that the world is in the midst of climate change is a truism. But that change isn’t out of ordinary for our planet. It is something that happens continually; the climate goes from one season to the next. The Bible edicts that there will be changes in the seasons until God remakes the heavens and earth one eternal day.
The globalist, progressive purveyors of the “global warming” mantra, now altered to the mantra of “climate change,” mean by their diatribes that mankind is wrecking the environment. Mankind alone, therefore, can fix “Mother Earth.” Only humans, not some existential God, at best (who probably isn’t there at any rate), can save the environment.
Those who observe Bible prophecy, especially from the pre-Trib perspective, almost always come down on the side of the view that people are not destroying the planet’s ecology—at least, not through physical activity. We can’t destroy the earth, because we haven’t got the power to do so. Like all of His creation, including human history, God ultimately has His almighty hand on it. He is in complete control, even though He granted us volition, the right to self will.
Those who believe that humans are here by happenstance, such as in the theory of evolution or some other model, believe that we, following our random placement in the sphere of the living, are masters of our own destiny. Many among these religiously believe that through our technological development, using fossil fuels that contaminate and corrupt the geophysical elements, we’re making life unsustainable.
America is seen as the greatest culprit in all of this, even though China, India, and others put far greater amounts of pollutants into the atmosphere. America is held as chief culprit by the globalists elite, of course, because they want our nation’s great wealth (or, I should say “perceived wealth” because of the national debt) to be brought into the internationalists’ orbit so they can plunder it as they see fit. This is why, as we’ve looked at many times, there is such hatred for a nationalist like President Donald J. Trump. He believes American citizens should be in control of America’s assets. Of course, this, too, is subject to violation by the corrupt government practices within the US. The Congress and entrenched, corrupt, bureaucratic entities siphon America’s wealth unabated.
All this said, the climate-change mantra continues and grows with a religious fervor that will be the feverish rallying cry around which Antichrist will one day build his regime, at least initially.
So it would seem that we who look at things from the pre-Trib perspective deny climate change.
Well, yes and no.
We believe and report events that point to the wrap-up of the Church Age, the Age of Grace. We acknowledge that changing weather patterns are primary indicators that Jesus Christ will one day—we believe soon—step out on the clouds of glory and call all born-again believers to Himself in the Rapture!
The growing weather disturbances and other strange phenomena within the natural world indicate the wrap-up of this phase of human history, setting the stage for all biblically prophetic fulfillment.
However, we deny climate change taking place that is caused by our sins against nature—i.e., polluting the atmosphere, etc. Rather, we say it is our sin nature, our anti-God, spiritual transgression that is bringing on nature’s rebellion against such comportment.
Remember Jesus, when He came into Jerusalem riding the little donkey while the people shouted “Hosanna!” The Judaizers told Him to make them shut up. However, Jesus said that if they were to keep quiet, the very stones would cry out. Nature, itself, would shout that He had arrived as Israel’s Messiah.
Well, Jesus is about to arrive again, this time as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
Mankind is for the most part denying Him. This anti-God rebellion is causing the very elements of creation to cry out in acknowledgment of His majesty and power.
We who observe prophecy acknowledge that the proliferating weather and other strange geophysical phenomena, many stories about which you can read on any given day on Rapture Ready news, are indeed taking place. However, the earth will not be destroyed by man or any other entity. Earth will be judged by God’s wrath because of mankind’s rebellion. Our atmosphere and existence in general will be judged for Israel’s sake and to bring about a remnant for a magnificently restored earth.
The thing you and I should do with regard to observing these things is to make sure we know Jesus Christ for salvation and forewarn others after giving them God’s salvation message. Then, we will one eternal day hear the Lord say, “Well done, good, faithful, servant. Welcome into the Kingdom, of which you are now joint heir.”
