The fourth angel emptied his bowl on the sun, and it began to scorch people like fire. Everyone was scorched by its great heat, and all of them cursed the name of God who had power over these terrible troubles. But no one turned to God and praised him.
There will be Global Warming that is not caused by man. The real, and horrifying Global Warming will be caused by God who will make it so hot on earth that people will be “scorched like fire!”
The idea that human beings have the ultimate power to control the temperature of the earth is foolish and arrogant to say the least! Perhaps we can influence how hot or cold it is by a few degrees, but nothing like God Himself will do in response to man’s rebellion.
If you believe that God Almighty can and will do only kind, sweet, and gentle things on this earth, you are greatly mistaken. God will judge and punish those who oppose Him and refuse to believe in Jesus! His judgement is more than frightening!
Many people believe that God made Heaven and Satan made Hell! That is not true! Hell was prepared by God for the Devil and his angels! To fear God is not just to stand in awe of Him. Those who reject Jesus have a perfect right to be “scared to death” of what will happen to them when they die! It is not a pretty picture and it will last forever. There will be no coming back to God after the judgement!
If you are one of those who says, God is really kind and so some day I will repent and turn to Him, just before I die, then wake up! That time may be today and this may be your very last opportunity to accept Jesus before it is too late!
I saw a bumper sticker once that, even though it may be considered “rude and crude” said, TURN OR BURN! So let your “What to do today” list have as it’s first entry today: REPENT AND TURN YOUR HEART TO JESUS! If you do, you will never regret it, but if you don’t you will regret it forever in Hell!
“Lord Jesus, help me today to realize how urgent it is that I turn my heart to You. May I bow down before You now and forever. Amen.”
