I don’t know if it has hit your local grocery stores yet, but plastic bags are practically being banned where we shop for food. It sure is an inconvenience having to now pay for paper bags to carry what you just bought since they have been essentially free for decades! It is not the cost that irks, but the fact that the policy is practically being made mandatory and all in the guise of doing the Earth a favor. Another thing, if they can make something like this mandatory, there will be other things to follow on the scale of what we can see in Revelation 13:16-17. The sad truth is, people can try their hardest to apply external solutions which bear no impact on the spiritual condition that is manifesting in the physical realm. Misdiagnosing something and treating the misdiagnosis can lead to serious consequences, ignoring the real problem- a spiritual one.
“Then he said to them: “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. 11 There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.
25 “There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. 26 People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. 27 At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”
Luke 21:10-11, Luke 21:25-28
Having just seen a slew of video clips regarding what’s happening around the globe, people are quick to attribute all that is happening to Global Warming. The birth pains being talked about in the Bible (Mark 13:8) is translated as “Climate Change” and people are alarmed at the surge of cataclysmic events on a massive scale. Some no doubt are caused by those who are playing God with weather manipulation not knowing the full adverse consequences the Earth suffers due to these inventions which play into the part that when people take matters into their own hands, they get hoisted with their own petard.
Another sad thing is the fact that people can’t stop the progression of events prophesied in the Bible. It was written so that we could all be warned of the coming events. We are living in the advanced stages of birth pains and it only shows us the veracity of the prophecies contained in Scripture. Instead of getting completely caught up in the diversion of Climate Change, seek Jesus Christ. There is no better time than today.
“Seek the Lord while he may be found;
call on him while he is near.
Let the wicked forsake their ways
and the unrighteous their thoughts.
Let them turn to the Lord,
and he will have mercy on them,
and to our God, for he will freely pardon.”
Amen, Caeli. I couldn’t agree more.
This reminds me of the parable of Lazarus and the Rich Man. He begged Abraham to send someone back from the dead to warn his family, but was told if they will not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they won’t listen to someone who comes back from the dead either. And isn’t that true? Jesus came back from the dead and He is still being disregarded today. Even Lazarus came back from the dead, and it was witnessed by many people. Some believed, but others wanted to kill both him and Jesus to keep His message from spreading.
Bottom line, no one can believe or come to Jesus unless the Father draws him. Unbelief, godlessness, and deception will grow stronger and stronger as the days progress toward His return.
It is true no one can believe or come to Jesus unless the Father draws him and that wooing comes in different forms, be it a sudden urge to seek God, having the good kind of “fear” that actually makes one come to the feet of Jesus and a host of other things.
“All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.” – John 6:37
The Lord tasked us to proclaim the good news to everyone since we don’t ultimately know who among all the people will end up believing in Him and also, having done so, people will have no excuse. The imploration in Isaiah gives us a clear picture that it is all a matter of choice.
Agreed! Just as He says in Ezekiel 33. God bless.
I have an old post touching on Ezekiel 33. https://modconspiracy.wordpress.com/2016/11/27/every-watchmans-woe/
“Some no doubt are caused by those who are playing God with weather manipulation…”
Men can try to “play” God by somewhat manipulating the weather, but in reality, they can only do so to a limited degree.
In Exodus 7:22 it says, “But the magicians of Egypt did the same thing by their occult practices. So Pharaoh’s heart was hard, and he would not listen to them, as the Lord had said.”
The magicians of Pharaoh copied the first 2 plagues that God did through Moses. But, in chapter 8 verse 18 and 19, it said, “18 The magicians tried to produce gnats using their occult practices, but they could not. The gnats remained on people and animals.
19 “This is the finger of God,” the magicians said to Pharaoh. But Pharaoh’s heart was hard, and he would not listen to them, as the Lord had said.”
In the 3rd plague, they could not imitate it because that was their limit to what God allows men to manipulate nature, in this case, through demonic spirits.
In the same way, in today’s time, science can do so with weather to a limit. In the time of the Great Tribulation, men will have nothing to do with the Seals, Trumpets, and Bowls.
The catastrophes with weather, meteorites, earthquakes, and etc., that will be all of God’s doing.
“Men can try to “play” God by somewhat manipulating the weather, but in reality, they can only do so to a limited degree.”
I agree. Mankind is humbled when they think they can be as God when it comes to creating things and mimicking things too lofty especially when they set themselves up against an omniscient God.
