10 Things You Can Do to Help Save the Earth | HowStuffWorks

The one world solution is being backed by the Pope, by leaders of many churches. I think the Archbishop of Canterbury is preaching humanistic message with a few God-words added on to it. He’s not preaching the Gospel.

And you end up, through that, with a movement which is anti-Bible and anti-Christ, which will end up in the form of totalitarian government which you can’t criticize or question, which demands that you submit to its dictates, and will end up impoverishing and enslaving us.

If you go to pages 27 and 28 of this magazine, (I won’t go into it now) it tells you how this leads into the Antichrist system, how it leads into the digital currency which they want to bring in, which itself would lead directly to Revelation 13, a system within which you can’t buy or sell without the authority of the beast.

On the way and behind this, you can see this one-world Babylon spirit at work, bringing the nations together, bringing together the iron and the clay of Daniel chapter 2, which come together but don’t stick together.

41 Whereas you saw the feet and toes, partly of potter’s clay and partly of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; yet the strength of the iron shall be in it, just as you saw the iron mixed with ceramic clay. 42 And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly fragile. 43 As you saw iron mixed with ceramic clay, they will mingle with the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, just as iron does not mix with clay.

Daniel 2.41-43

So, they come together but they’re not together because of conflicts within them.

The idea that we’ve got to save ourselves, as happened in the Tower of Babel.

Tower of Babel | Answers in Genesis

What you’re seeing today is very much along the lines of the Tower Babel sequence of events. Let’s read from Genesis chapter 11. It says,

Now the whole earth had one language and one speech. 2 And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar, and they dwelt there. 3 Then they said to one another, “Come, let us make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They had brick for stone, and they had asphalt for mortar. 4 And they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top is in the heavens; let us make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.” 5 But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built. 6 And the Lord said, “Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them. 7 Come, let Us go down and there confuse their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech.” 8 So the Lord scattered them abroad from there over the face of all the earth, and they ceased building the city. 9 Therefore its name is called Babel, because there the Lord confused the language of all the earth; and from there the Lord scattered them abroad over the face of all the earth.

Genesis 11.1-9

Note there:

‘Let’s build ourselves a city, let’s make a name for ourselves’ human-centred ideology. ‘We can do it ourselves without God; let’s save ourselves; let’s build a tower’ but you’ll read ‘to reach up to heaven; let’s become like gods.’

God intervenes to scatter them because He sees the potential danger of this human movement which separates them from Himself.

They’re going to unite and nothing they propose will be withheld from them.

‘Unite, develop technology, bring it all together.’

What we see today also has another dimension which I haven’t time to go into, but you see humanity coming together with technology, a human potential movement using artificial intelligence, super computers to link up humans with the purpose to save the world. Bringing together a union between humans and machines which is satanic and right against God’s will, and that could, in itself, create something which would be a complete abomination to God.

God is going to smash it before it gets to that point, which is one of the reasons for the Second Coming of Jesus.

The word ‘Babel’ means ‘confusion’ or, it can also mean ‘the gate of God’.

Here’s an interesting little detail I picked up. Before the COP26 conference at Glasgow, world leaders met in Rome as you may have noticed in the G20 Meeting. In Rome, they were also blessed by the Pope who added his little bit of information into it.

G20 culture ministers meet in Rome – Wanted in Rome

They had a final dinner in a place called the Quirinale Palace in Rome. Just before they had this dinner, the Quirinale Palace held an exhibition to celebrate the 700th anniversary of the Italian poet Dante who wrote the Divine Comedy. Specifically, the exhibition celebrated a section of the Divine Comedy called the ‘Inferno’ or Hell.

The exhibition, which was inspired by the ‘Inferno’ was given the title ‘The gates of Hell’.

So, the exhibition held at Le Scuderie del Quirinale in Rome marks the 700th anniversary of Dante’s death. It features more than 200 works from the Middle Ages to now representing hell in all its forms. From demonic renaissance depictions of bodies toasting in fire and brimstone to experiences of hell in the earth such as concentration camps in the Second World War.

INFERNO | scuderiequirinale.it

The curator said the exhibition is timely because ‘this century we live in has become hell itself’.

What’s interesting is that just before they went to Glasgow, the world leaders met in Rome, at the gates of Hell, in the Quirinale Palace.

Make of that what you want, but they were discussing the earth which God made and one thing that you notice is that God ‘doesn’t get a look in’.

They’re telling you how to look after God’s world, but God is totally ignored. Nobody calls upon God, nobody refers to the Bible, no one thinks about Creation. God is totally absent in any of the discussions which are taking place.

Since it’s God’s world, God’s not too happy about this and Paul speaks about

18 … the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things. 24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonour their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever.

Romans 1.18-25

We are called NOT to worship the creation, but to worship the One who made it, the Creator.

And, if the Creation is in a mess, we need to ask Someone who made it how we’re going to put it right.

In fact, we’re not going to put it right because the end of days scenario brings us to a time when there will be huge trouble in the environment.

God has been left out, and God is not so happy about it.

In the end times, God speaks about disturbances in the environment which are not necessarily caused by human activity. He speaks about the powers of the heavens being shaken, about judgments of God, about earthquakes, famines, etc., and signs in the heavens.

Here are Jesus’ words in Luke 21.25:

25 “And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; 26 men’s hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 27 Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.”

Luke 21.25-28

Notice he says there that ‘the powers of the heavens will be shaken’. Something’s going to happen to be shaking powers of the heavens. That’s not just what we do on the earth, it’s what’s happening outside, things over which we have no control:

signs in the sun, the moon, and the stars, distress of nations seeing the waves roaring.

If you go to Revelation 6 through to 19, it gives you some of the outworking of this. I’ll just read one passage from Revelation 8. It says, ‘The first angel sounded:’, verse 7

7 The first angel sounded: And hail and fire followed, mingled with blood, and they were thrown to the earth. And a third of the trees were burned up, and all green grass was burned up. 8 Then the second angel sounded: And something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea, and a third of the sea became blood. 9 And a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.

Revelation 8.7-9

Signs in the sun, the moon, and the stars.

One of the things which I’ve written about again in this magazine is that verse, concerning the first angel and the hail, and the fire following, mingled with blood that were thrown to the earth, and a third of the trees were burned up.

According to one interpretation of this, it is an exact description of something we call a Coronal Mass Ejection (CME). In other words, a solar flare.

What would happen if a solar flare hit the earth?

A solar flare is energy coming from the sun, hitting the earth straight on. If the earth’s defences are weakened through the magnetosphere being weakened, which it is, then it would have a devastating effect on what happens on the earth.

Solar flares are different to ‘coronal mass ejections’ (CMEs), which were once thought to be initiated by solar flares. CMEs are huge bubbles of gas threaded with magnetic field lines that are ejected from the Sun over the course of several hours. Although some are accompanied by flares, it is now known that most CMEs are not associated with flares.

This has important implications for understanding and predicting the effects of solar activity on the Earth and in space. If a CME collides with the Earth, it can excite a geomagnetic storm.

Large geomagnetic storms have, among other things, caused electrical power outages and damaged communications satellites. The energetic particles driven along by CMEs can be damaging to both electronic equipment and astronauts or passengers in high-flying aircraft.

The European Space Agency

This almost happened once in about 1850. It wasn’t too bad then.

If it happened now, it would be potentially devastating. It would knock out most of our communication systems, computers, etc.

But one of the things which this article said would happen if a solar flare hit the earth straight on is:

It would cause, first of all, a rush of very cold air to come in from space which would cause the clouds to turn into hail, so we’d have tremendous fall of hail on the earth.

That would be followed by tremendous fire coming down which could then burn up the vegetation on the earth.

He says that this description in Revelation 8 is a description of what would happen if this solar flare was to hit the earth.

It has nothing to do with man-made global warming, it could happen as a result of some cosmic disaster hitting the earth which the Bible says can happen in the Great Tribulation period.

Revelation 8.10 speaks about a great mountain burning with fire thrown into the sea.

What are scientists worried about? They’re worried about asteroids flying around and, if one of them, a big one, fell into the sea, this is what would happen.

Therefore, you have these things happening: signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars.

Another sign in the moon. One of the interesting things I’ve discovered is that NASA (the North American State Agency) has said that the moon’s orbit is ‘wobbling slightly’.

If it was to wobble in a major way, it would cause, because the moon affects the tides, it would cause much higher tides and much lower corresponding tides. So, if you suddenly had a high tide with the water sweeping in, it would flood coastal areas including London, New York, much of the East Coast, and low-lying areas around the world.

Signs in the sun, the moon, and the stars.

Jesus said these things are going to happen, they’re going to happen specifically in the time of the Great Tribulation. In other words, in the final seven-year period before His return.

They’re going to be part of God’s judgment upon the earth which has rejected Him.

We’re not going to stop them happening through resolutions made in Glasgow or through anybody else. They’re going to happen, and we need to realize that this is part of God’s judgment on a world which has turned away from Him.

It sounds like ‘bad news’ and it could be bad news if it wasn’t for the next thing which can happen which is the Second Coming of Jesus.

Jesus himself is going to come back. This time not as a suffering servant but as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

Jesus is the Creator. He was there at the beginning, and He’ll be there at the end.

As the Creator, He’s able to recreate the world which has been messed up. Some of the prophecies in the Old Testament, particularly those about the Millennial Kingdom period, imply that He’s going to make significant differences in the environment.

One of them is about a lot of water being released, a lot about rivers flowing in the Old Testament. Isaiah chapter 35 says,

The wilderness and the wasteland shall be glad for them, And the desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose; 2 It shall blossom abundantly and rejoice, Even with joy and singing … Behold, your God will come with vengeance, With the recompense of God; He will come and save you.” 5 Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, And the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. 6 Then the lame shall leap like a deer, And the tongue of the dumb sing. For waters shall burst forth in the wilderness, And streams in the desert.

Isaiah 35.1-6

It may be a bit fanciful, but I think those waters could be part of God’s cleaning up process for the mess which we’ve made of the earth in this time.

One thing they’ve discovered is that there is a vast amount of water at the centre of the earth, hidden down there.

Jesus would release some of that water and cause it to come up and to cleanse the earth from all the defilements. Then, make the earth into the fertile place which is going to be in the Millennial Kingdom period.

Because the Bible says, as I said, that Jesus is going to come back and that He’s going to rule the world, and there will be peace and justice, and plenty.

Psalm 72 says,

8 He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, And from the River to the ends of the earth … 16 There will be an abundance of grain in the earth, On the top of the mountains; Its fruit shall wave like Lebanon; And those of the city shall flourish like grass of the earth.

Psalm 72.8 and 16

Therefore, it’s not going to end with total disaster. It’s going to end with Jesus coming.

And, when Jesus comes, He’s going to bring the reverse of all the disasters. And, because he is the Creator, He can sort out the mess which we have made of the Creation.

I believe that God wants to make sure that He has the last word, not Satan, and not man in his rebellion either. He’s going to run the world as it should be. There’ll be rivers in the desert, there’ll be an equitable climate, there’ll be plenty.

He will deal with all the man-made pollution and make an environmentally friendly social structure which may mean the end of fossil fuels but, be that as it may, He’ll reign for a thousand years.

Finally, we’ll close with this. The ultimate global warming experience will take place.

2 Peter describes it in chapter 3 verse 10:

10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. 11 Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, 12 looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? 13 Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.

2 Peter 3.10-13

That’s going to happen! And, ultimately, not only this world but this universe also is going to be burned up, and God is going to create a new one.

He is able to do that. He’s going to make a new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.

If you believe in Jesus, you’re going to be there. If you don’t, you’re not. That’s the final thing I want to say.

There is an absolute choice between heaven and hell, an absolute choice between whether you go to be with the Lord in that glorious, recreated universe or whether you’re outside, in the place which really is the place of burning, the fire of hell.

God doesn’t want anybody to go to hell. And nobody needs to go to hell. You need to repent, believe the Gospel, and then you have a glorious future and a hope in Jesus Christ.

Therefore, we have a warning and a hope. We have a great hope in Jesus, and, if we believe in Jesus, then nothing can separate us from the love of God in Jesus Christ.

There may be difficult times coming but He’s with us always, even to the end of the age’. He’s going to have the last word.

So, believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you shall be saved, amen.

Praise the Lord! Let’s just have a word of prayer.

Lord, we thank you for the hope we have in Jesus. We pray that if anyone listening here or on the internet is not saved, that they will turn to you now in repentance and faith, and believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and so, have a future and a hope. We pray for our loved ones who don’t know you Lord, whether they’re children or parents, or brothers or sisters. We pray Lord that you’ll open their eyes to the truth, and that they will turn to you in these last days. And we pray for the masses in the world who are being led astray by all kinds of false and deceiving spirits, Lord, that they might receive the truth, and they might repent and believe in Jesus, and turn to You; that there might be a great harvest of souls before you return.

We thank you for Jesus. Thank you that you’ve done it perfectly the first time you came, and that you will do it perfectly when you come the second time. We give you thanks for this in Jesus’ name, amen.
