Shall We Fight Against God Himself? You Cannot Save the Planet, But You Can Save Your Eternal Life

In the last few decades it has become increasingly popular among prelates, laymen, and scientists to excuse or ignore sin and to elevate the status of elements of Creation above the Self-existent, Eternal God who created all things for Himself, His pleasure, His purposes, including His having created us. It is willfully arrogant and ignorant of humanity to think that we can get away with sin and flaunt it in God's face, then for us to turn around and say that "we" are going to try to save the planet from the natural long term cycles that God put into place.

"Earth Day", "Gaia", & "Mother Earth" are expressions that roll off people's tongues even while they use profanity and blaspheme the Name of the Living God. Increasing numbers of souls are duped into the modern and interrelated religions of evolutionism and secularism, in which they push away God and His Word, in favor of their own ideas and fears. But, just because flies swarm hungrily around a pile of manure does NOT mean that I as a human being should be eating what flies eat. God has different plans.

Too many folks are hollering that climate change, more popularly called 'global warming', is a modern error of society. But those same people would have been screaming the same nonsense when the great Ice Age was bearing down on humanity. Those people want to change the weather and climate cycles to maintain their physical, financial, or social interests to which they've grown accustomed, BUT they do NOT want to change their sin. They want everyone accountable for consumer behaviors that have some small impact on CO2 levels, BUT they do NOT want to repent of their own sin, before the Living God. They do not want to admit that their personal sin was responsible for putting Jesus Christ on Calvary's cross. They do not want to admit or accept that He volunteered to shed His sinless blood, be tortured, and die in their own place, to pay for their sin. God says that we make false gods of ourselves when we exercise our willful selfish interests, when we choose our urges and false ideas instead of choosing His goals for us. We sin by failing to choose obedience, repentance, faith, holiness, and worship of HIM. Like flies, we keep choosing the manure pile of sin, instead of the good goals that God set for us. Our refusal to do what God wants not only corrupts Earth, but all of Creation. That we might choose to escape that corruption, Jesus chose to die in our own place and rise again to save us from the consequences of our sin,... IF we will just repent, trust Christ, and let God work in our lives.

Not only does God say that our sin corrupts Creation, BUT, because of humanity's continued refusal to repent, throughout the ages, God says that HE is going to end both human sin and all of His original Creation that our sin has corrupted. God has said for millennia that He is NOT going to destroy the world by floods or climate change, BUT, He very specifically says that HE is going to put all Creation to the torch... before He creates a NEW Heavens and NEW Earth in which are no longer any sin.

2 Peter 3:3-7   Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,    And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.    For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:    Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
   But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

So, my question is, how is it that people think that they are going to fight against God and save this Earth and Creation that God has promised to burn? Look at the simplest of situations that God posed to the Jews regarding the fruit of their sin. God's chosen people could not escape the consequences of their sin, because they did not repent. How arrogantly ignorant of history people are, today, who think that they can escape God's judgment and punishment for our sin. Even God's chosen people could not escape when they refused to repent!

Zephaniah 1:2-3
  I will utterly consume all things from off the land, saith the LORD.  I will consume man and beast; I will consume the fowls of the heaven, and the fishes of the sea, and the stumblingblocks with the wicked; and I will cut off man from off the land, saith the LORD.

There is ONLY ONE WAY out of the destruction that is coming, and that is by PERSONAL repentance and faith in the Person and the Plan that God has stated all throughout history. Please choose His Plan for salvation before it is too late for you.
