Is this planet in jeopardy?
Is it too late to save the planet from manmade destruction?
Can the climate be changed to benefit mankind instead of destroy mankind?
Is the earth in fact a living being who plays host to the inhabitants who live here?
Are the inhabitants of earth ungrateful parasites, filled with disrespect toward our benevolent hostess Mother Earth?
Is it time to whip the masses into shape, live green, fear environmental change, and utterly rethink and revamp civilization as we know it?
The answer to all of the above question is NO!
No, the planet is not in jeopardy.
We don’t need to save the planet from manmade destruction.
The climate cannot be changed by man or the actions of man.
The earth is a created mass. It has no ‘life’ of its own.
It is not time for the inhabitants of the world to fear environmental change so much that they will accept a civilization filled with rules and peer pressure that demands worship of an inanimate object know as ‘earth’.
Here’s the truth.
The earth has a Creator. That is God Almighty.
The earth has a sustainer. That is God Almighty.
The earth has a savior. That is Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God.
You can forget ‘saving the planet’.
The planet will be fine just as long as God has a purpose for it.
When God’s purpose is done, the planet is toast. (Don’t worry. God promises a new heaven and new earth wherein dwelleth righteousness. (2 Peter 3:13) It will be like moving from the shack out back to the mansion on the hill.)
There is absolutely nothing at all that can be done to change God’s plan.
HOWEVER, in the mean time, it suits God’s purpose and plan to sustain the earth.
So don’t worry that you/we, your children/our children will wake up one morning without a planet that has the necessary elements to sustain life.
It ain’t gonna happen.
This planet is sustained by the hand of God alone, and mankind has nothing to do with anything regarding how it operates, or how long it operates, or the level of oxygen in the air, or the ozone layer, or anything else that actually affects what is going on climatically speaking. It requires arrogance and folly to believe anything else.
The heathens and infidels of the world can worship mother earth as they like. The Christian has a higher calling. The Christian is to obey the commandments and rules for living that are set down in the Bible. Do not let yourself be distracted by fearmongers shouting ‘The sky is falling! The sky is falling.’
Christians are to actually follow the example set by Christ. These rules include:
the ten commandments:
the examples of Christ in how He lived His life while here.
the ‘love one another clause:
I think you know are at least familiar with the ten commandments.
Christ gave us an example or instructions on:
He fed the 5,000, and then gathered up all the leftover food so as not to be wasteful. Now, that is an example worth following in how we live our lives. Don’t waste things.
CARE OF ANIMALS
‘The righteous man regardeth the life of his beast: but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.’ (Proverbs 12:10)
How about that. The simple regard for the life one’s animals is better than the most tender mercies of the wicked. An example of that is PETA – people for the ethical treatment of animals.
They scream loudly for ethical care and treatment of animals.
YET, what do they do with abandoned animals entrusted to their care?
According to this report, PETA kills 97% of the animals they take in.*
Now excuse me, but gramma running a home for stray cats can do better than that – and probably on a fixed income!
Matthew Henry’s commentary on Proverbs 12:10 says, ‘A godly man would not put even an animal to needless pain. But the wicked often speak of others as well used, when they would not endure like treatment for a single day.’
SOWING AND REAPING
‘Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.’ Galatians 6:7
If a man would have food for next year, he must replant his crops every spring.
If a man would have timber for homes in the future, he must replant harvested trees today.
If a man would have material possessions such as houses and land, he must sow in hard work today.
While we have no power to determine the ultimate destiny of the earth, our actions do give us some control over our daily lives and the comfort in which we live.
Obedience to God is the first and foremost action that will have immediate and lasting effects.
The ‘love one another’ clause, which is often repeated in the Bible, says:
Ephesians 4:32 ‘And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.
John 13:34 ‘A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.’
John 15:12 ‘this is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.’
Also see John 15:17, Romans 13:8, 1 Thessalonians 4:9, 1 Peter 1:22, 1 John 3:11, 1 John 3:22, 1 John 4:7, 1 John 4:11, 1 John 4:12, and 2 John 1:5.
If you love your brother, you will not harm your brother, but will do good to him. The Bible actually tells us to love our neighbor as well. (Leviticus 19:18, Matthew 5:42, Matthew 19:19, Matthew 22:39, Mark 12:31, Romans 12:9, Galatians 5:14, James 2:8)
Luke 10:29 says, ‘But he willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbor?’ Then Jesus proceeds to tell him the story of the good Samaritan. The Samaritan cared for one he did not know.
Honestly, nothing good can be done to ‘save the planet’ or save mankind as a whole from the destruction that lies ahead.
What CAN be done is to give as many as possible the opportunity to reconcile with God the Father through Jesus Christ the Son.
Christians live as though on the Titanic. The ship is sinking. It cannot be saved. Yet, many of those on board are willing to be saved from sinking into the sea. They are looking for a way out of their danger. Point them to the way out which is Jesus Christ.
AND – remember, there is a time coming on THIS planet called the Millennium Kingdom.
In that Kingdom:
The earth will flourish. Isaiah 35:1
Christians will rule and reign with Christ. Revelations 20:6
Satan will be bound up during the thousand years. Revelations 20:3
So, don’t let the environmentalist, PETA, globalists, fear mongers, go-greeners, or anyone else distract you from the REAL problem. Actually, the whole environmental movement is set up to change your perception of the real problem to something of no importance what so ever.
The REAL problem is separation of mankind from God. The heart of man is in effect at war with God. Anyone who so chooses can be reconciled to God through Jesus Christ. In Jesus there is peace; and there is safety – which includes a stable planet on which to live.
