Part 10: HEARTFELT
What do we
see in the world today? Disbelief, disregard for Christ, all the
‘isms’ of distrust and hatred, and we have terrible drought,
flood, earthquake, fire and volcano disasters.
Millions are in desperate need of simple basics; food,
The requirements for having those things remains, - the
blood of the sacrifice and the commandments of God. Those laws
will be written again on the heart, ‘After
those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward
parts, and write it on their hearts; and will be their God, and
they shall be my people,’ Jeremiah
31:33, also Hebrews 8:10 and Romans 2:15.
The Law of God had been voted in by the people of the
Kingdom of God, and the vote was never rescinded. It was, and
still is, the basis of law, order and justice.
It was written on the heart of Adam and Eve and because
those laws were broken, our only way back to harmony with God is
through the sacrifice of Christ, the second man ‘made in the
image of God.’
Christ died because the law was broken in
the Garden of Eden. His death was foreshadowed by the Lord’s
slaying of a covering for Adam and Eve so it is rightly said he
was ‘slain from
the foundation of the world,’ (Revelation
13:8). No other law brought the death of the Creator. Christ
stood in for us. He died so that we can be restored.
Nothing ‘voted in’ after Christ’s death on the cross is
covered because a will and testament cannot be changed after the
death of the testator, Galatians 3:5.
Grace and mercy
come through the sacrifice as it did in the Garden of Eden, when
God slew a sacrifice to make covering.
‘But seek ye
first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these
things shall be added unto you.” (Matt
Today, the present Kingdom of God, accessed through
the blood of the sacrifice, was begun by the Children of Israel
who were the disciples of Christ. It is now a kingdom that is
world-wide, not bound by nations, tribes, peoples or religions.
Listen to its description: ’For
as many of you who have been baptised into Christ have put on
Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond
nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one
in Christ,’ (Galatians
We are individually involved because, as Peter
declares in his letter to the scattered followers of Christ, ‘ye
are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a
peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him
who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light,’ (1st
It is a ‘holy nation’ of believers, based on
the lawful justice of the Kingdom of God and accessed through
Christ who is his righteousness.
Conclusion, Part 11: THE ARSENAL
Let us just revisit some
of the weather processes found in the Scriptures so that we can
have clear guidance about the actual cause of disastrous weather
events. It is important because the real cause is so different
from what we are being told.
The first global weather
change opened up the arsenal of both heaven and earth when the
sacrifice to cover sin was compromised, Genesis 6. Noah
confirmed belief in the sacrifice and God promised he would
never again send a flood over the entire earth.
brimstone took out Sodom and Gomorrah, Genesis 19, when whole
cities spurned the sacred law of marriage, given before sin and
reiterated in the Commandment, ‘Thou shalt not commit adultery,’
The second global weather event was a
drought recorded when the Children of Israel sold their brother
and lied to their father about it, Genesis 41:54-57. Even though
they lived exemplary lives afterwards, they could not cover
their sin through ‘being good.’ When they confessed and
repented, they were spared the devastation of the drought.
An earthquake is recorded when one line of the Children of
Israel, the sons of Korah, rejected the requirements of the
Kingdom of God. (Numbers 16.)
In Israel, the Kingdom of
God, through which the sacrifice of Christ for broken law would
be made, there were various weather events. Most memorable was
the drought in Elijah’s time brought on by compromising genuine
sacrifice for a false cultural belief. It was remarkably similar
to Noah’s day, (1st Book of Kings.)
These are a few
examples showing clearly though we are shown in the Garden of
Eden and again in Israel, that we are to properly manage earth’s
resources, and are accountable for good management, being good
stewards of the earth alone is not enough to hold good weather
Jesus said in his great outdoor sermon that the
first thought of the world is for food, water and covering,
Matthew 6: 30-32 and every weather disaster brings it sharply
into focus. ‘But,
[said Jesus, verse 33,] seek ye first the kingdom of God [law,
justice, order as required by those in the kingdom of God], and
his righteousness [Jesus Christ, the righteous, 1st John 2:1,]
and all these things shall be added unto you.’
requirements remain. When the sacrifice of the man ‘made in the
image of God’ was rejected by the nation, it was taken up by a
few of that nation, i.e., Peter, James, John, etc..
spoke to his disciples about weather patterns that would follow
He said his temple would be utterly
destroyed, not one stone left upon another, nations would war
against each other and there would be ‘famines, and pestilences,
and earthquakes.’ Matthew 24:7. Weather patterns would be wild
and unpredictable. Food shortages are inevitable.
world is worried about what to eat and drink and wear and we
hear it often today, but never once did Jesus blame pollution or
everyday living as the cause of extreme weather upheavals.
Sadly, when his disciples asked Jesus what would be the sign
of his coming and of the end of the world, he told them clearly
that the world would be as it was in the days of Noah. ‘As
the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of
man be,’ Matthew
24:37. He also said ’For
had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me; for he wrote
of me,’ (John
More than two thousand years ago, Jesus warned his
people against compromise and connected it with upheavals of
He warned his people in the Sermon on the Mount,
and when they determined to reject him, he warned his disciples
that they should expect to see extremes of weather.
kingdom of God is the followers of Jesus, as Peter said writing
to the scattered followers, ‘But
ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation,
a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him
who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light,’ (1st
Yes, people are responsible for flood, fire,
earthquake, volcano and famine. We cause them through rejection
of the law and rejection of the covering provided through the
death of our Saviour.
‘Blessed are they that do his
commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and
may enter in through the gates into the city,’ (Revelation
and judgment are the habitation of thy throne; mercy and truth
shall go before thy face.’ (Ps
We receive with deepest reverence that ‘Mercy

each other,’ Psalm
