Global Warming and the Bible

About thirty years ago, in the 1970s, there was a lot of talk about a new Ice age.  Now we have the same kind of talk about the awful effects of global warming.  It is true that the weather patterns of the Earth do vary greatly from time to time.  However, mortal man is not the determining influence in respect to that.

We were told, by the prophet Moses, that, in about the year 1856, from the creation of Adam, when Noah came off the ark, he offered a burnt offering to God of every clean beast, and every clean fowl.  When the Lord saw it, it was like a sweet smell to Him, and “He said in His heart, I will not again curse the ground for man’s sake. – While the Earth remains, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.”

We seem to have had a general warming trend for some time now, but God is doing something of which He prophesied in Job 38:22-23, saying, “Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail, Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?

God will very soon reverse the present trend, and with all of the troubles which God intends to bring upon His creation, He will add the inconvenience of some very severe winters.  It is all in the Hands of the one and only, the God of all creation, who rules in the affairs of men, and raises up nations, and casts down nations at His own will.
