Biblical Teaching Regarding Climate Change - Psalm 147:5-18

Climate change is a “hot” topic these days and we have a brief biblical outline and perspective on this matter which is much needed today. To properly understand this topic we must view this subject from Almighty God our Creator's point of view and perspective lest we be misled by our emotions, junk science, the god of this world, his minions and the hysteria of our day (Psalm 119:105, 2 Cor. 11:13-14, Eph. 6:12).

Consider these facts:
.
1.) The ETERNAL SOVEREIGN God and Creator controls every aspect of the weather on planet earth. Climate IS the Lord’s obedient slave: “Fire, and hail; snow, and vapors, stormy wind fulfilling His Word” (Psalm 148:8).
.
2.) The constancy of the seasons and the general stability of the weather IS GUARANTEED by Almighty God in the Noahic covenant (Gen.8:22): “While the earth remaineth, seed time and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.”
.
3.) When the nation Israel disobeyed Almighty God's RIGHTEOUS laws and ordinances, they were justly placed under His RIGHTEOUS curses which included serious famine and weather problems (Deuteronomy 28).
.
4.) It is the absolute height of pride for man to think that his actions or lack of actions will affect this earth’s climate in any significant way (Isaiah 2:12, 22).
.
5.) In the up coming seven year tribulation period after the Rapture of the Body of Christ (Isa. 24, Matt 24, Rev. 6-19) there will be severe global plagues which will EXPONENTIALLY and  CATASTROPHICALLY affect the entire environment and climate of planet earth. These plagues will include severe famine (Rev. 6:5-6), destruction of vegetation and sea life (Rev. 8:7, 9), seas and rivers turning to blood (Rev. 16:3-4) and unparalleled global warming (Rev. 16:8-9).
.
6.) In the Kingdom Age of Jesus Christ - which will be established after Christ's second coming to planet earth - the weather will be ideal and the environment will be Edenic (Isa. 11). However, even in the millennial reign of Jesus Christ, those who openly disobey and disregard Almighty God's RIGHTEOUS moral and spiritual absolutes and laws will face serious consequences relating to the weather. For example; Almighty God will withhold rain from any nation which seeks not to honor their Creator's RIGHTEOUS mandates (Zechariah 14:16-19).
.
7.) Following the Kingdom Age and reign of Jesus Christ, Almighty God will then finally destroy the present day heavens and earth with extreme nuclear heat and melt and dissolve the entire universe: “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” (2 Peter 3:10). It will be then Almighty God will create a NEW Heavens and earth which shall be INCORRUPTIBLE, RIGHTEOUS and ETERNAL for the redeemed throughout the ages of time to live in FOREVERMORE and to serve and enjoy their ETERNAL Creator in RIGHTEOUSNESS, REALITY and TRUTH (Isa. 65:17; 66:22, 2 Peter 3:13, Rev. 21;22:1-5).
.
Ah my dear friends, the puny efforts of godless men and nations will NEVER EVER alter these seven Biblical certainties. May we today be found trusting and serving Almighty God our ETERNAL Creator in Spirit and truth, who is the ETERNAL Owner and Master (Lord) of this planet and world  (Psalm 24:1), the His earth’s soon coming RIGHTEOUS King and Judge!
.
“Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness?” (2 Pet. 3:11)
.
The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
