Universalism, Part 3

The devil loves to spread the lie that all people will be with God in eternity.  What a nice deception.  However, the Bible’s message is summarized in the following, 

‘Boldly and without hindrance he [Paul] preached the Kingdom of God and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ.’  Acts 28:31

As Jesus Himself said, 

‘…No one comes to the Father except through Me….’  John 14:6b

That is why there will be a day of reckoning, 

‘For we will all stand before God’s Judgment Seat.’  Romans 14:10c

God has no favorites.  Each of us will be judged according to what he/she has done on earth.  Deceptive reasoning will not carry us through in that day.

Climate Change – is it real?

Is climate change real?  It is real because God ordained it.  Right after the events of Genesis 3 God cursed the world.  The changes in the weather patterns are in the Bible, 

‘In the beginning You laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of Your hands.  They will perish, but You remain; they will all wear out like a garment.  Like clothing You will change them and they will be discarded.’  Psalm 102:25-26 

We see that nature is wearing out and humans play a role in it.  They cut down forests, plough up grasslands to plant crops and overgraze.  Those activities influence nature.  It is a harbinger (a forerunner) of the coming new heavens and earth.  

What is not real is the hysteria around climate change.  I learnt a principle many years ago.  We moved to an old house with some old fruit trees.  I immediately took them out and planted new trees.  My father-in-law asked me why I took the old trees out while they still bore fruit, before the new ones began to bear?  


My fruit tree lesson is also a good principle to handle climate change – first get the alternate sources of energy going and then cut out the polluters.

God’s Supernatural Light

Genesis 1 reveals how God created the universe.  However, the creation of light on day one baffles people,

 “And God said, ‘Let there be light,’ and there was light.  God saw that the light was good, and He separated light from darkness.’ Genesis 1:3-4 

The sun, moon and stars were only created on day four.  This supernatural Light on day one was a prophetic foretelling of the darkness that would fall on man because of Adam’s disobedience,  

“The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God….  2 Corinthians 4:4

God, who foreknew it, let us know that in Jesus is light,  

God who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness, made His light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.'”  2 Corinthians 4:6

All Adam’s descendants are trapped in the kingdom of darkness.  However, because of God’s timely intervention we have hope, 

‘This is the message we have from Him and declare to you: God is light; in Him is no darkness at all…. But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, His Son, purifies us from all sin.’  1 John 1:5,7 

People argue about how God created, et cetera.  The miracle is how God saves people for His eternal Kingdom.  They are the people who will see God’s face always, since they were saved by His supernatural Light in Jesus here on earth.
