The one true God has promised that until the end of the Earth there would be the four seasons. (Gen 8:22). So despite the increasing instability in the climate and the weather, the Word of YHVH abides. The increasing instability and unpredictability are also according to His word, as Yeshua has told us that as the end nears the weather and climate would be affected and indications of the signs of the times. There is no need, therefore, to get into profitless debates about climate change, nor to think that mankind can “fix the world”. Praise God for the Rock upon whom we stand!
This is definitely a time of transition for all of us, as the Corona virus pandemic and the way it is being managed are bringing us into a new situation that we have never faced before. Love is growing colder, and even being enforced. By our faith in who Jesus Christ/Yeshua the Messiah is, and in His blood of the New Covenant poured out for us, do we overcome the world. Lawlessness is increasing, and the intimidation and fear are paralyzing those in government and law-enforcement agencies from distinguishing between lawful civil dissent and and unlawful words and deeds. Since all are sinners who fall short of the glory of God, even those in government and security forces are party to the break-down of the social order, some even giving legitimacy to it. This generation will see the worst the world has ever witnessed, and will also see the most amazing thing ever in the return of the Son of Man from Heaven in great power and glory to judge the world in GOD’s righteousness and justice, bringing GOD’s peace to the world that He created and made to be an inhabitable place. He is in the process of separating the light from the darkness, good from evil, holy from profane, clean from impure, those who are His from those who are not. Fear the Lord, and give Him glory! The gospel goes out until the end of the age, to both Jews and non-Jews.
