Q. Is Man about to destroy the earth?
A. Scientists have developed all sorts of deadly weapons that could wreak havoc, and some are being deployed. With nuclear capability in the hands of so many terrorist nations and groups, it will take only one insane press of a button to launch a conflagration.
Despite this potential for horror, remember that, no matter what man tries to do, God is in total control. 2 Peter 3:10–13 tells us that the earth will be destroyed one day, but it will be God’s fiery judgment when the elements melt with fervent heat and a great noise.
Just as God judged the wickedness of man in the days of Noah with a global judgment of water, and at the Tower of Babel with confusion of languages, so He’ll judge again – but next time by fire!
So many people have rejected God but they are more fearful of what man can do. They are more worried about their physical situation in Time, rather than their eternalsouls in Eternity. What stupidity! Jesus said, Matt 10:28, …fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear Him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
Don’t worry about your lot on Earth; make right with the God of Eternity through His Gift of Salvation in Jesus Christ. After all He’s made you for Eternity – Heaven or Hell; the choice is yours!
