WILL MANKIND BE AFFECTED BY GLOBAL WARMING? by steve finnell
Will mankind be affected by global warming in the future? Have men suffered from global warming in the past? The short answer is yes.
Jude 1:7 just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities around them, since they in the same way as these indulged in gross immorality and went after strange flesh, are exhibited as an example in undergoing the punishment of eternal fire. (NASB) 2 Peter 2:6 and if He condemned the cites of Sodom and Gomorrah to destruction by reducing them to ashes, having made an example to those who would live ungodly lives thereafter.(NASB) Genesis 19:Then the Lord rained on Sodom and Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven,(NASB)
Yes, men can cause temperatures to rise due to their behavior.
2 Peter 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat, and the earth and its works will be burned up.(NASB)
Global warming is inevitable. Controlling man-made CO2 emissions will not prevent global warming.
In the end most people in the world today will experience extreme heat.
Revelation 20:14-15 Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire. 15 And if anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.(NASB)
Yes, you can escape the extreme heat to come. How? Have your name written in the book of life.
People in the book of life need to be qualified. Qualifications: FAITH John 3:16---REPENTANCE Acts 2:38, Acts 3:19---CONFESSION Romans 10:9---WATER IMMERSION Mark 16:16, Acts 2:38, 1 Peter 3:21
Revelation 20:10 And the devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and false prophet are also; and they will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.(NASB)
Heat is on the way.
Matthew 41, 46 "Then He will say to those on His left, 'Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels; 46 These will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.(NASB)
It will be hot for the unrighteous.
Men can only become righteous through Jesus Christ. His terms for pardon. His qualifications.
Without Jesus as Lord and Savior all men will feel God's heat.
