The main advantage in reading the Bible is to be exposed to the pure truth of God about spiritual things, especially the subject of eternal life and how to get it and keep it. Besides mainly addressing salvation, the Bible also touches on many other issues, including the future of our planet! There is, therefore, no need to get involved in any debate regarding global warming. Since the Bible teaches the climate of the planet will increase in temperature, we know the future before it happens! (No one needs a crystal ball and the witchcraft associated with it!) The Bible ends the debate without even considering the glaciers melting:
Never again will they hunger; never again will they thirst. The sun will not beat upon them, nor any scorching heat. For the Lamb at the center of the throne will be their shepherd; he will lead them to springs of living water. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes. (Rev. 7:16,17).
The context of that passage is the end of this age and the people referred to are overcomers who inherit God’s kingdom, that is, people who endure and persevere through the sufferings and persecutions related to godly living. There will be no global warming debate among the overcomers referred to in Rev. 7:16,17. It is inferred that they were hungry and thirsty [maybe because of famine and drought] and the sun was beating down on them with scorching heat. Since the overcomers are from all parts of the world (Rev. 7:9), then the worldwide global forecast is HOT (global warming), according to the infallible, error-free word of God. The radical deliverance for those faithful overcomers from being hungry, thirsty and hot to being led by the Lord Jesus himself (the lamb of God) to springs of living water PLUS having God wipe away every tear, implies excitement, relief and deliverance from their earthly pain and the sufferings they endured.
Another passage strongly implying global warming is at the same approximate time:
The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and the sun was given power to scorch people with fire. They were seared by the intense heat and they cursed the name of God, who had control over these plagues, but they refused to repent and glorify him. (Rev 16:8,9)
That shouts out global warming. No one could get global cooling out of that! It is going to get HOT, but for the people who die without Jesus and eternal life, it gets even hotter in the fiery furnace where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth (Mt. 13:41,42).
In contrast, the best word to describe where the faithful (mentioned in Rev. 7:16,17) go is PARADISE, the same term used by Jesus himself when he told the newly repentant thief who got forgiven, where he was going!
Jesus answered him, “I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise.” (Luke 23:43)
Jesus believed there was a PARADISE awaiting people, who turn to him in repentance, like that former thief (who was a criminal). So criminals can get forgiven and go to paradise, while many church goers will go to eternal punishment and fire for being unrighteous. The one sure hope for all of us is found in the Lord Jesus Christ. He is our hope of glory (Col. 1:27). That is much more important than global warming!
