YOU heard this before, right?

The earth is gradually heating up. Has been for many years.

Why? Because humans are being irresponsible with our consumption and burning of natural resources, such as fossil fuels. The ozone layer, protecting us from UV rays from the sun, is being depleted. A runaway “Greenhouse Effect” is in our future, and will have horrible effects on the climate of our planet. Some even predict an “ice age” brought on by melting of the polar caps. We must avoid this at all costs and change our ways now, they say.

Al Gore
Former Vice President Al Gore produced the global warming documentary, ‘An Inconvenient Truth.

For many years, certain members of the scientific community, in concert with members of Hollywood, have joined forces to warn humanity of this “inconvenient truth.” Movies such as “The Day After Tomorrow” and the recent documentary “An Inconvenient Truth” by Al Gore have attempted to stir up our consciences to conserve and find new ways to power our world.

I’m all for it. I believe we should be good stewards of the earth which the Lord has created and given to us, just as we should be good stewards of the bodies, talents, and resources which he has provided us all on an individual basis.

But, there is a piece of the puzzle these Global Warmists are missing. It was revealed to us by a man who was breathed upon by Jesus Christ himself. A man whose mind and understanding the Bible reveals was personally and supernaturally opened by the Lord. A simple fisherman who was completely immersed in the power of the Holy Spirit on a Pentecost Feast approximately 1,960 years ago. His name was Simon Peter.

Peter wrote two letters which are included in the New Testament. His second letter reveals that there will be three heavens and earths. Did you know that? Currently, we are abiding on the second of the three earths.

The first earth was completely destroyed by a global flood:

2 Pet 3:5-6 For they deliberately suppress this fact, that by the word of God heavens existed long ago and an earth was formed out of water and by means of water. Through these things the world existing at that time was destroyed when it was deluged with water. (NET)

According to Peter, the second earth is also going to be destroyed by global warming. Yes, that’s right. No matter how much we attempt to avoid global warming, it is inevitable if the apostles and prophets accurately recorded what the Lord revealed to them. Consider Peter’s revelation of the fate of the present heaven and earth:

2 Pet 3:7 But by the same word the present heavens and earth have been reserved for fire, by being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly. (NET)

2 Pet 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. (KJV)

Coming Ice Age
Movies such as “The Day After Tomorrow” have attempted to stir up our consciences to conserve and find new ways to power our world.

You wanna talk about global warming? This present earth, according to Peter’s understanding of the prophets and his personal revelation from Jesus Christ, will be destroyed by fire during the day of the Lord’s wrath. Peter further reveals that the elements will melt away with fervent heat.

So, what does Peter say should be our response to this prophesied fiery future? Should we man together and do everything we can now to prevent this? Should we store up supplies and hunker down in fear? Should the nations be building deep underground cities and bases to hide from the coming destruction?

Of course not. Peter’s advice is rather simple, but has nothing to do with fighting global warming. Instead of a physical preparation, it is a spiritual preparation Peter warned about:

2 Pet 3:11-12 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? (KJV)

Peter said we should be separate and pure from the world and its system, striving to live godly lives. Furthermore, we should be looking forward to the coming of that destructive day! It is coming very soon; long overdue in my estimation. But Peter has an answer in the same passage as to why this day has not yet come, answering scoffers who doubt the second coming of Christ due to the long delay:

2 Pet 3:9 The Lord is not slow concerning his promise, as some regard slowness, but is being patient toward you, because he does not wish for any to perish but for all to come to repentance. (NET)

The promise of his coming, and the coming day of the Lord’s wrath, has been delayed. Why? Because the Lord is patient toward humanity so that all may repent and submit to the King of Kings, trusting in his sacrifice for their rebellion against him by their evil deeds. Have you cast away your pride and had a change of your mind toward God? We are all enemies of God by our pride, and unless we repent, acknowledge him as our Lord, and trust in the sacrifice of Jesus Christ to permanently cover our sinful rebellion, we remain a magnet of God’s wrath.

The day is coming when he will split the sky, resurrect those believers who have previously died, and catch up all those who have put their trust in him, to be protected from the day of the Lord’s wrath. In that day, the present earth will experience an extinction event. A most welcome global warming, because the third and final heaven and earth will be much better:

2 Pet 3:13 But, according to his promise, we are waiting for new heavens and a new earth, in which righteousness truly resides. (NET)

So, the next time you hear about “global warming” on the news or in the media, just remember this little article and smile. Because a new heaven and earth are coming soon.

And because you know the truth.
