Ken’s Articles on the Christian Faith

Climate Change

First. In Noah’s day global climate change involved a mighty flood, not caused by man’s carbon footprint but by his great wickedness. Genesis 6:5-7.

Second. In Israel’s early history. God warned: ” take heed to yourselves, lest your heart be deceived, and you turn aside and serve other gods and worship them, lest the Lord’s anger be aroused against you’ and shut up the heavens so that there be no rain, and the land yield no produce.” “Deuteronomy 11: 17.”

Third, Later Israel’s king , Ahab, ” did more to provoke the Lord God of Israel to anger than all the kings before him,”1 Kings 16:33. So God’s prophet, Elijah was sent to announce climate change – a long drought followed. 1 Kings 17:1.

Fourth, the bible foretells a time when there will be ” angels to whom it  will be granted to harm the earth and the sea. ” Revelation 7:2 – to discipline a rebellious world.

So climate change is not new. Note (1) our misuse of earth’s resources is not the main problem: (2) God uses climate change as a discipline – it highlights our dependence on Him, (3) human repentance can reverse His climate change plans.

                    GOOD NEWS IN BRIEF

Note,  God’s long-suffering and patience – He “sends rain on the just and the unjust.” Matthew 5:45

      (I am a writer based in South Australia who has been privileged over many years to write columns for city and country newspapers in Australia. My simple goal has been to share good news and hope with a world sorely lacking in both.

I hope as you visit these pages that you will find encouragement and stimulus for thought. I have discovered through all the ups and downs of life that contentment is to be found in relationship with God. May you gain glimpses here of the same reality.
