Natural Disasters

A Convergence. ‘Fearful Sights, Perilous Times, Natural Disasters Increasing Like Labor Pains.’ ‘Rapid, severe and unprecedented’ climate change poses catastrophic risk to global stability, experts warn. The scientists are not mincing their words: we should now look at the possibility of total human extinction due to the climate crisis. Mark 13:20 And unless the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake, whom He chose, He shortened the days.

Romans 10:14 “But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them?”

Matthew 9:37 Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few.

Luke 10:2 He told them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.

… And great earthquakes shall be in diverse places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. (Luke 21:11).

… Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken; (Luke 21:26)

Matthew 24:21 For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now—and never to be equaled again.

Ezekiel 33:6 But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman’s hand.

The scientists are not mincing their words: we should now look at the possibility of total human extinction due to the climate crisis.

Matthew 24:22 And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.

Mark 13:20 And unless the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake, whom He chose, He shortened the days.

Following a spectacularly bleak warning that humans must prepare for a “climate endgame,” after failing to properly explore what the climate crisis is bringing, scientists from leading institutions are banding together to seek support for what could be a major change in tack in how human-driven global environmental collapse is viewed.

Calling for a new report from the UN’s IPCC on “catastrophic climate change,” they hope that explaining the horror coming down the line will galvanise the global response to the crisis which is currently almost non-existent.

Mark 13:20 And unless the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake, whom He chose, He shortened the days.

Speaking to The Independent, lead author of the research, Dr Luke Kemp from Cambridge University’s Centre for the Study of Existential Risk, said the climate crisis has been a factor not only in all known mass extinction events the world has seen, but has also played a critical role in the collapse of many human societies.

“We know that in the long-term climate change is capable of causing mass extinctions,” he said.

“We know that we could plausibly hit concentrations of greenhouse gases by the end of the century which are consistent with the triggering of past mass extinctions.

“Climate change has the potential to erase much of the biosphere and change the trajectory of life.”

He said in the past mass extinctions have been due to climatic changes which trigger a process called ocean hypoxia – warmer waters hold less oxygen leading to the growth of so-called “dead zones”, which can spread, leading to the deaths of huge numbers of species.

Second Trumpet: The Seas Struck

Revelation 8:8 

Then the second angel sounded: And something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea, and a third of the sea became blood. And a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.

Third Trumpet: The Waters Struck

Revelation 8:10 Then the third angel sounded: And a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. 11 The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the water, because it was made bitter.

But today’s climate crisis is occurring harder and faster than any other global climatic change before.

“What is more disturbing is what we do not know,” Dr Kemp said.

“Current climate change is geologically unprecedented – it is faster than the changes involved in past mass extinctions.

“Mass extinction events are already an incredibly high bar – climate change will likely be a global catastrophic risk for humans well before it reaches mass extinction levels.”

Professor Tim Lenton from the University of Exeter, a co-author of the study, agrees.

Asked if governments’ failure to take the required action on the climate crisis was plotting a course to major instability in the near future, he said: “Yes – and I think it will be of the cascading risk kind.

“We are suffering unprecedented heatwaves and fires already. The fires in Europe last week are already causing people to move to get away from them.

“Current policies globally are taking us to a nearly 3C warmer world in which billions of people could be on the move. Alas we know that large scale movement of people is not widely welcomed and can often trigger conflict.”

Dr Kemp said examples of past societal collapses and crises which bear the fingerprint of the climate crisis include the demise of the Lowland Maya, the fall of the Western Roman Empire, and the Late Bronze Age collapse, which included the fall of the Mycenae Greek and the Hittite Empire.

“Impacts such as drought and migration appear to have led to a series of disastrous knock-on effects in the late Bronze Age world system,” he said.

“It destabilised the trade system and likely spurred war, rebellion, and declining state revenues.

“Like the modern-world, the Bronze Age Mediterranean was a system of states that were densely connected through trade and politics. It was also an unequal world, and its interconnectedness allowed for climate impacts to spiral into systemic breakdown.”

While Dr Kemp said each individual case was complex and increasing droughts and changes in temperature “do not automatically lead to societal breakdown”, he warned “the lesson is that already fragile societies can be deeply damaged and even upended by climatic variation”.

He added: “The scariest part is that the past climatic variations were largely natural and modest. We now face rapid, pervasive, and severe man-made climate change. The risk is enormously larger than what past societies had to weather.”

Speaking about the call for a greater exploration of the threats we face, Dr Kemp said previous campaigns highlighting the deadly risks of nuclear war had helped build support for nuclear disarmament, and in the case of the climate crisis could help our societies better prepare and plan how to respond.

“Understanding plausible worst-cases can propel public action,” he said.

“Studying the climate endgame is not an advocacy effort. It is sane risk management.

“Understanding extreme climate risks can help prevent them and build resilience. Comprehending climate catastrophe is necessary to have a fully informed democratic discussions, including of emergency responses.”

Matthew 24:22 And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake those days will be shortened.

Mark 13:20 And unless the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh would be saved; but for the elect’s sake, whom He chose, He shortened the days.

But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them?” —Romans 10:14

Jesus Christ’s Offer of Salvation:

The ABCs of Salvation through Jesus Christ (the Lamb)

. . . “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:15-17). For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).

C. Call upon His name, Confess with your heart and with your lips that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.

. . . “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10).

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (John 1:8-10).

. . . “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. (John 2:2).

. . . “In this was manifested the love of god toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.” (1 John 4:9, 14-15).

. . . “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:8-10).

. . . “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).

. . . “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).

. . . “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.” (Romans 1:16).

. . . “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts: 4:12).

. . . “Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth for there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” (1 Timothy 2:4-6).

. . . “For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thessalonians 5:9).

. . . “But as many as received him, to them gave the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.” (John 1:12).

True Church / Bride of Christ Spared from God’s Wrath:

 Romans 5:8-10. “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.”

Romans 12:19. Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord.

1 Thessalonians 1:10. And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.

1 Thessalonians 5:9. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

Romans 8:35. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

Jeremiah 30:7. Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob’s trouble, but he shall be saved out of it. Revelation 3:10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.
