Then Noah built an altar to the LORD, and took of every clean animal and of every clean bird and offered burnt offerings on the altar. The LORD smelled the soothing aroma; and the LORD said to Himself, “I will never again curse the ground on account of man, for the intent of man’s heart is evil from his youth; and I will never again destroy every living thing, as I have done. “While the earth remains, Seedtime and harvest, And cold and heat, And summer and winter, And day and night Shall not cease.” — Genesis 8

The Bible tells us that the heart of man is desperately wicked beyond our understanding. It also tells us that all have sinned and fallen short of God’s glory. We have learned that what we consider righteousness is no better than a bucket of filthy rags.

It is only by the grace of God that we even are kept from the brink of destruction. While we know that God will not destroy the whole Earth in the manner he did, we still forget how fragile our existence is.

Many areas of our country, including California and Nevada, are experiencing drought levels, levels not seen in many years. They are not, however historic levels, and are independent of what the green socialists are calling global warming. These droughts, however, will contribute to likely famines to be spawned by the actions taken by the Green socialists. Refrigeration is vital to the survival of people in the third world, and electricity shortages will increase famine.

One of the side effects of the gradual warming of the Earth is that crops have reached record levels of production, which likely will soon drop off given the reduction of fossil-sourced fertilizer and the impracticality of farm equipment being run on electricity. As these globalists force the price of fossil fuels higher food production will drop. One of the main reason for the skyrocketing prices of food is the escalation of fossil energy costs. This is by plan and has been discussed for decades (notably, by the Obama administration) as a means to force a change to alternative energy, which is in no way as efficient as fossil fuels are. Other than nuclear, no other energy source has the same output to storage ratio. Hydrogen does not even come close, and requires additional energy to store it. (Hydrogen takes four times the storage volume as gasoline.)

Not only is worldwide famine a possibility, it is likely given the push to raise energy costs and the hot and cold wars raging.

I’m not even going to delineate close to another dozen things that could cause an utter breakdown in our society. The declining birth rate, world war, nuclear war, a significant volcanic event, a significant solar event, a significant asteroid collision, a true pandemic, or biological warfare (which may already be happening in the guise of a pandemic) are all factors. Any given one could bring us to an apocalyptic scenario.

This brings me back to what is the most important factor: there is a God, and he is in control. Our destiny is not decided by ourselves, except to the degree by which we give the Creator of the universe our attention and dedication. With a few rare exceptions, the governments of the world are at war with God; the economic systems of the world are at war with God; man has exalted his wisdom over the wisdom of God, but that can change as it did in the Reformation, and the industrial revolution. The discoveries that gave us our technological and efficient food production tools we have today were a gift from God, not the inherent evil that the Green Socialists believe.

Above all else, we need to turn to God and cry out for the mercy of God upon us and upon our country.
