Whether it’s from the pandemic or the climate emergency, whatever is next, humanity is longing for a collective salvation.
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.
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.
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,
‘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.
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.
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
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:
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
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.
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,
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,
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:
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.
