                                                                        Is This The End Of Days?                                                                                      

In his letter to the churches at Galatia revealed,

"Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap, Galatians 6:7.

Paul's words are becoming a reality in our day also. The people were horrified when 100,000 dead fish washed up on the banks for twenty miles in Arkansas. The people cried out, "Is this the end of days?" Then dead fish washed up on river banks in Louisiana. Two million fish have washed up on the banks of the Chesapeake Bay. One hundred tons of fish have died in Panama and Argentina. So what is the problem the world is facing? For years we have used our rivers, lakes, and ponds as waste dumps. We have dumped out body waste, chemical waste, and industrial waste, until the environment the fish live in has become so toxic they can no longer survive. There have been fish kills many times over the last several years. Many rivers and streams have become sterile with no life in them. We are truly reaping what we have sown. All the salt and calcium put on the roads that wash into the ditches which run into the streams which empty into our lakes and rivers are toxic to the fish.

It is the same with our air where our birds fly. The air is so polluted with smog (smoke and fog) and smaze (smoke and haze) from our industries and all the carbon monoxide from auto exhaust, is it any wonder the birds are dropping from the sky by the thousands? Several hundred dead birds fell from the sky in Texas. Thousands of birds fell from the sky in central Arkansas. Five hundred birds fell from the sky in Louisiana. Hundreds more birds fell from the sky in Kentucky. Tens of thousands of dead birds fell to the ground in Manitoba. Eight thousand doves fell over the skies in Italy. In Sweden, a mere one hundred birds fell to the ground. It becomes clear that this is not a local, but a world wide problem. The birds breathe the same air we do. Cancer has been increasing at an alarming rate, as well as breathing disorders. The use of chemicals to grow our food is another problem. Our bodies are not able to ward off these chemicals in the air, in the food, and in the water.

Our food production is being threatened by the disappearance of honey and bumble bees. Scientists inform us 87% of the bee population has been killed off. These, along with insects, pollinate our plants, trees, and vegetables which we eat. Because of this decrease in pollination, the world's food production will be cut drastically. What the world has yet to learn is that when God pronounces judgment upon man and man's sinful nature, then the pronouncements become the promises of God. And all God's promises will come to pass. Man's pollution also affects the animal kingdom. Ten thousand antelope lie dead in Kazakhstan. These ten thousand antelope represent one fourth of the total global population of this animal. The Holy Spirit spoke through the pen of Isaiah:

"To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the Lord, and for the glory of His majesty, when He ariseth to shake terribly the earth." Isaiah 2:21

God has risen to shake terribly the earth. There have been earthquakes all over the earth. In the last thirty plus days, there have been earthquakes in the following regions: December 2, 2010 . . . a 6.9 earthquake in New Guinea; December 17th . . . a 7.2 earthquake on the California / Mexico border; December 20th . . . a 5.6 earthquake in El Salvador; December 21st . . . a 6.2 earthquake in Sumatra; December 21st . . . a 7.4 earthquake in Japan; and December 25th . . . a 7.6 earthquake in Fiji. There have also been earthquakes in Chile, the South Pacific, Alaska, California, Nevada, Oklahoma, Indiana, and elsewhere. This again fulfills God's promise:

"And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven," Luke 21:11.

God has truly risen up to shake terribly the earth. We are made another one of God's promises through the pen of Jeremiah:

"Behold, the whirlwind of the Lord goeth forth with fury, a continuing whirlwind: it shall fall with pain upon the head of the wicked. The fierce anger of the Lord shall not return until He have done it, and until He have performed the intents of His heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it," Jeremiah 30:23-24.

Whirlwinds are tornadoes, hurricanes, and cyclones. The whirlwinds are becoming more fierce with the hurricane that destroyed New Orleans and those which hit the Mid West. There were one hundred in one day. And as Jeremiah explains, these will fall on the head of the wicked. God will perform the intents of His heart, and we will need to consider all these things in the latter days. And as the people are crying out, this is the end of days.

We all look at the promises of God when He promises good things, but what about the promises He makes that we must change our lives and thinking so we do not suffer the judgment He has promised? In his letter to the Corinthians, Paul reveals this truth:

"For all the promises of God in Him are yea, and in Him Amen, unto the glory of God by us." II Corinthians 1:20.

As always in Christ
