#1. Genesis 1:1 says, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”
Notice the intriguing chasm of time between verse 1 and verse 2.
Genesis 1:2, “And the earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep.”
Something cataclysmic happened in between, for Almighty God did not create the earth without form and void. Everything YaHVeH does is most excellent. A very terrible event transpired, that destroyed earth’s form and made it void. I believe this event is also recorded in the Holy Bible. Read this passage in the Book of Revelation.
Revelation 12:7-9, “And there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon fought against his angels and prevailed not; neither was their place found anymore in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent called the Devil and Satan which deceives the whole world. He was cast out into the earth and his angels were cast out with him.”
Lucifer was forcibly removed from heaven with 1/3 of the angels for attempting a coupe d’ etat against Almighty YaHVeH, as it is written in Isaiah chapter 14. I believe it is this war in the heavens that caused the earth to become without form and void. This war probably caused the craters on the moon. This war probably tilted the earth’s axis. This war is probably what killed the dinosaurs. The reason? SIN!
#2. Genesis 6:1- tells the story of Noah and the worldwide flood that rose some 24 feet above the highest point on the earth at that time. The deluge was brought by the Almighty Himself for the sole purpose of ridding the earth of men and women, who had become so wicked, that every imagination of the thoughts of their hearts was only evil continually. This event took place in approximately 2348 B.C. Why was the pre-flood world destroyed? SIN!
#3. In Genesis chapters 18-19, we find the story of Sodom and Gomorrah. Read it for yourself. The city was so wicked by reason of homosexuality and other sins, that Almighty God burned them to the ground swiftly with fire and brimstone out of heaven. Our great God of love, mercy and grace is also a God of justice. He will not forever be grieved by wickedness and there is a breaking point to His patience. Again, what destroyed the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah? SIN!
#4. In the year of our Lord 70, the Roman army under Titus sacked Jerusalem and destroyed the temple. Christ Yahshua Jesus prophesied this would happen approximately 33 A.D in the Book of Luke 19:41- , “And when He was come near, He beheld the city, and wept over it saying: If you had known, even you, at least in this your day the things which belong to your peace! but now they are hidden from your eyes. For the days shall come upon you, that your enemies shall cast a trench about you and compass you round and keep you in on every side and shall lay you even with the ground and your children within you; and they shall not leave in you one stone upon another; because you knew not the time of your visitation. Christ prophesied to Jerusalem that it would be razed to the ground because of how Jerusalem treated Him. Messiah’s prophesy came true in less than 40 years. Why was Jerusalem destroyed? SIN!
Don’t stone me for anti-semitism. All humanity is guilty of the death of Christ, because it was our SIN that nailed Yahshua Jesus to the cross. When they came to arrest Christ, Peter drew his sword to fight. Christ told Peter to put up his sword and asked him this question:
Matthew 26:53, “Do you think that I cannot now pray to My Father, and He shall presently give Me more than twelve legions of angels?”
The Romans and the Jews did not take the Messiah’s life from Him by force; quite to the contrary, He laid His life down willingly for the sins of the world.He also prophesied His resurrection and then rose from the dead three days later.
The number one threat to our planet is SIN! Global warming WILL NOT destroy earth and you can take that to the bank. An asteroid or meteor WILL NOT destroy mankind guaranteed. Pollution is a bad thing, but it WILL NOT destroy us. Over population WILL NOT be what dooms humanity. Man’s refusal to align themselves with the Great Creator alone will doom the world. Almighty YaHVeH, Creator of all things, hates sin and His Spirit will not always strive with men.
So go right ahead and flush trillions of dollars down the toilet trying to stop global warming and save the planet, but YOU WILL FAIL! Go ahead and worship creation and not the Creator, if that is what you want to do. Go ahead and cozy up close to homosexuality, if that is what you want to do. Go ahead and rebel to your heart’s content, if that is what you wish; but know this, SIN WILL KILL THE WORLD! He who sits in the heavens hath spoken and will not take it back. The Almighty prefers that you have a change of heart and put your trust in Christ for eternal life while there is still time.
It is appointed unto men once to die, and after this the judgment. Hebrews 9:27
