I have to laugh sometimes when I think how the leaders of this world get so serious about our climate—like as if WE can actually change the climate! Okay, there are many things we can do as good stewards of this earth. But we need to realize that we can’t really do much, and any small thing we do, God may decide to reverse what we have done with a few volcanos.
Check out this video: about how a scientific film turns the tables on the Paris Summit.
Instead of being so serious about our climate I would suggest getting serious about what God most requires of us, our obedience to Him in terms of our relationship with Him (and prayer) and our holiness. Also, if we would look at the Bible to see what will happen in the future, our worries now about the climate will seem pointless. Soon, very soon I think, there will be seven years of tribulation on this earth. This is an appoint time when God brings His wrath upon sinners and upon this earth. Indeed, there will be great earthquakes, volcanos, floods and fire like we have never seen. And we won’t be able to do anything about it. God will be in control. Yes, He is in control of His creation, and we can’t do anything to reverse it.
God’s control of Creation
God is in absolute control of His creation. He is the Creator (Genesis 1 and 2). God destroyed His creation in the days of Noah with a worldwide flood (Genesis 7–9). God sets the boundary for the seas (Job 38:8–11, Psalm 104:9, Jeremiah 5:22) and controls the weather: lightning (Job 28:26, 37:3), hail (Job 38:22, Psalm 147:17, Haggai 2:17), rain (Job 28:26, 37:6, Psalm 147:8), and snow (Job 37:6, 38:22, Psalm 147:16). Someday God will destroy this earth and establish a new heaven and a new earth (Revelation 21:1). Man is not in control of the weather and this present earth is temporary.
If the leaders of this world would be as serious about peace and getting rid of evil and corruption in this world (like ISIS) as they seem to be about climate change, now that would be something to applaud! But this climate change conference to me is just ridiculous, laughable.
Why do the nations conspire and the peoples plot in vain? 2 The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers gather together against the Lord and against his Anointed One. 3 “Let us break their chains,” they say,” and throw off their fetters.”
4 The One enthroned in heaven laughs; the Lord scoffs at them. 5 Then he rebukes them in his anger and terrifies them in his wrath, saying, 6 “I have installed my King on Zion, my holy hill.”
7 I will proclaim the decree of the Lord:
He said to me, “You are my Son; today I have become your Father. 8 Ask of me, and I will make the nations your inheritance, the ends of the earth your possession. 9 You will rule them with an iron scepter; you will dash them to pieces like pottery.”
10 Therefore, you kings, be wise; be warned, you rulers of the earth. 11 Serve the Lord with fear and rejoice with trembling. 12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry and you be destroyed in your way, for his wrath can flare up in a moment. Blessed are all who take refuge in him.
