destroyed before. Of course, I’m talking
about the Great Flood in Genesis 6-9.
You see, the flood is a “preview of coming
attractions.” Destruction will happen again.
The Flood was a real event, not a legend or
God will destroy this world.
a fanciful tale. Other books in the Old and
New Testaments reference it as literal and
historical. More importantly, Jesus talked
about it as a real event (see Matthew
24:37-38).
2 Peter 3:9 says, “The Lord is not slack
concerning His promise,” and that promise
is judgment. Verse 10 says, “But the day of
the Lord will come as a thief in the night,
in which the heavens will pass away with a
great noise, and the elements will melt with
fervent heat.” So the earth is going to be
destroyed by fire, not by water.
God gave a promise afterward, in Genesis
8:21. “Then the Lord said in His heart, ‘I
will never again curse the ground for man’s
sake, although the imagination of man’s
heart is evil from his youth; nor will I again
destroy every living thing as I have done.’”
But notice the words “as I have done.” God
didn’t say He wouldn’t destroy everything
again. He said He wouldn’t do it in the
same way that He did it in the flood. He’ll
never again destroy the earth by water.
Verse 11 has a great question. “Therefore,
should perish but that all should come
since all these things will be dissolved,
to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9). If you give
what manner of persons ought you to be in
your life to the one who gave His life as a

Flood.
The evidence for a worldwide flood is one
of the great witnesses to the unbelieving
world. But the skeptic doesn’t want to
believe in it, because it’s that “preview of
coming attractions” that I mentioned. What
God did in destroying sinners, God will do
again, in the Great Tribulation period. If you

But there is an ark of safety, there is an
ark of hope. And His name is Jesus Christ.
Remember, God is “not willing that any
to every creature, and whoever believes will
be saved, and whoever does not believe
will be condemned. Those are the “coming
attractions.” The world will be destroyed,
sinners will be judged, and only those who
escape through the ark of the righteous life,
death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ will
be spared.
And so the answer to the question in
verse 11 is this: God wants us to be the
kind of people He can use us to bring
our family members, our neighbors, our
friends—everyone who will hear—to the ark
of safety, which is Jesus Christ. Let’s be
about that work.

When did it start to melt? Then you
have to ask yourself, why did it start to
melt?
by Noah White Sr
WARNING!
!
X
WARNING!
WARNING!
We are all going to die.
id that get your attention? Yeah,
probably not. We have heard these
words so much that we have become
quite numb to them. But these words
ring out year after year. The latest
fanatical episode is Global Warming.
From what they say, the polar caps
and the land locked glaciers are going
to melt, causing the oceans to rise,
destroying cities and causing havoc
on the environment as we know it. Is
it as bad as they say? Is it because of
what they say? What exactly is global
warming? It is as simple as it sounds.
The “globe” is getting warmer. Secular
scientists say that it is due to mankind
putting pollutants into the air, causing
a greenhouse effect. They tell us that
an increase of just one degree COULD
have a devastating effect on the world
as we know it. This would cause the
polar ice caps and land-based glaciers
to melt, raising the level of the seas by
20 feet, killing plant life, and causing
widespread droughts.
D
There is no doubt that Global
Warming is happening in some part.
The polar ice caps are shrinking. We
have photographic evidence that the
northern ice cap is getting smaller
and it is getting smaller faster. But is
it because of what they say, and what
effect will this have on this “globe”?
Growing up in the public school
system, my science class told me that
the earth has gone through about six ice
ages. That means that it got cold and
then it started to warm up at least six
different times. Why did that happen?
What caused the global warming then?
I was also told that during the middle
ages, the overall temperature of the
globe was warmer than it is now. What
caused that? I was also told that during
that time, the earth had a mini ice age.
What caused the globe to cool down?
As Christians, should this bother us?
There are a few things that we need
to consider. This data is coming from
people who, 20 years ago, told us the
egg was very bad for us. Then they
changed their mind. It was not bad after
all. Then they changed their mind again,
and decided that it was somewhat bad.
Which is it? Another fact that was
always presented in my science classes
was the expansion of the universe. The
universe was still expanding but it was
slowing down. And soon, in a few
billion millennia, it would stop and start
to retract in what would be called the
“Big Crunch.” But in the year 2000,
they “discovered” that the universe was
still expanding, and it was not slowing
down. In fact, it was accelerating. I
am sure that this involved some “new
discoveries” with what is called the Red
Shift. (One side note, they never tell us
about the Blue Shift. Look that one up
when you have time.) Or how about one
of the big “facts” they have given us,
evolution? I don’t need to go into that
one. The only thing this should do is
encourage you to do what the Bereans
did, to continually test the spirits. They
did it concerning the Word of God that
was preached to them, but we should
also do this for everything. So if we
should do this for everything, is what
they are telling us the truth? It is a fact
that the Arctic ice cap and the land
Is it as bad as they say?
Is it because of what they
say? What exactly is
global warming?
glaciers have melted. And they have
melted quite a bit. But...
If we look at the articles and listen
to the experts, we find out that the
data they are using is from the early
to mid 1990s. If we look at how much
ice has melted on the earth, there has
not been a significant rise in the level
of the oceans. So what is going on?
Earth’s global temperature peaked in
1998 and we have been cooling down
ever since. Why hasn’t that become
mainstream news?
The most important question is
not whether or not this is happening,
but why is it happening? Because
man has disobeyed God. In Genesis
2:15 it states, “And Jehovah God took
the man and put him into the garden of
Eden to work it and keep it.” He was
to use the Garden, but to use it wisely,
not to exploit it or waste it. The Book of
the Law tells us to work the land for six
years and let it rest for one year. God
clearly has a proper method of how to
use the land. Man has not followed this
instruction. Look at the destruction
caused by “slash and burn” farming
techniques, the hunting of whales for
their fat, the irresponsible grazing of
the cattle ranchers of the 19th and 20th
centuries, or what caused the dustbowl
of the early 20th century. Man used
these wasteful techniques for the sole
purpose of greed. We are paying the
price of this lack of care. As Christians,
we should be the example for the world
to follow in everything. We should be
trying to use biodegradeable soaps
and detergents, starting a compost bin
or even something as simple as not
watering during the heat of the day or
using a clothesline to dry your clothes,
instead of the gas or electric dryer.

LOOK IT UP
Here are some examples of topics
that you can go look up on the
internet or even at your local library:
Solar Paneling
Wind Turbine Generators
Gray Water Usage
Programmable Thermostats
Composting
Gardening
Fuel Efficient Vehicles
Fuel Efficient Driving
Hot Water Bottles
Thrift Store Shopping
Feather Beds and Blankets
Saving Money on your Electric Bill
Do-It-Yourself projects
Granted, for most of us, some of these are financially out of reach. But like I said, there
are simple things that can be done. All of these warnings that the world is giving us
should wake us up to what we should be doing—what God told us to do.

It’s
‘
All Going
To Burn
By Chip Lusko
“But the day of the Lord
will come as a thief in the
night; in 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.”
(2 Peter 3:10)
The Wall Street Journal recently observed that
Hollywood has developed a preoccupation with
the end of the world. This year, 2012, The Road and
Terminator 4 were among the films that speculated
about world’s end. If any of these screenplay scenarios
come true it would not be so good for the film stocks
beyond 2010, but for this quarter’s earnings, apocalypse
means cash.
Hollywood has speculated many times on the nature of
terminal global catastrophe. The Day After Tomorrow: freezing,
Independence Day: aliens, 2012: flooding, etc.
Perhaps part of the attraction for audiences is that they can safely
watch the world end at the multi-plex, then go back to reality in the
parking lot. However, Armageddon is not only a Bruce Willis movie about a
meteor, it is a biblical concept that will come to pass.
Apocalyptic scenarios did not
originate with the first (and vastly
superior) Day the Earth Stood Still or
even with the Mayans, who weren’t all
that bright for that matter.
The biblical books of Ezekiel, Daniel
and Revelation each lay out a clear
template for exactly how the world as
we know it ends.
Fundamental Christians have
long been accused of being antienvironmental. Ronald Reagan’s
Secretary of the Interior, James Watt,
set off a firestorm by suggesting that
because ‘Jesus is coming
back,’ strip mining coal
was an expedient idea.
Wrong.
Understand
this, God is
the ultimate
environmentalist.
He created it all.
But He will also
destroy it!
So, Christians must
balance two epic truths: This
world has an expiration date and God
will someday recreate heaven and
earth, but in the meantime, we are still
commissioned (Genesis 1:12) to be
excellent stewards of the earth.
So we can appreciate creation while
recognizing its temporary nature.
Yes, eventually, “it’s all going to burn,”
but this fact does not grant us the right
to rape and pillage the earth. On the
other hand, nature worship, “earth first”
and equating animals with humans is
whacked.
The Mayans and the makers of
2012 had it wrong. God promised
Noah never to flood the earth again
(Genesis 9:11). He made no so such
guarantee concerning destruction
by fire.
Here is a harsh reality: Worried
about global warming? The worst
is yet to come. The Bible says the
universe will roll up like a scroll of
flames. Scientists speculate that a
“cosmic glue” holds atoms together.
They will find out, too late, that it is
Jesus Christ Himself.
And when He lets go, look
out! For those with an
“earth only” viewpoint,
environmental
paranoia is
understandable.
Before I became
a Christian, I had
decent green
credentials: I took
part in the first
Earth Day in 1970.
Living in Hawaii, I joined
Greenpeace and was ultra
active in the anti-whaling movement.
Happily, I discovered that instead
of saving whales, it was me who
needed to be saved!
The global warming controversy will
be put to rest by God Himself. There
is a far warmer place that all humans
should be concerned with avoiding.
