Pacific sea levels
In the book of Job 26:10, we read:
"He hath compassed the waters with bounds, until the day
and night come to an end."
Sitting by the Pelorus River one afternoon, I watched very
carefully as the river water seeped into the sand on the shore and marveled at
the wisdom of Almighty God who could make such a substance that could control
the water in such a manner.
It has been interesting to watch the purveyors of global
warming and related subjects, churning out their endless list of lies
regarding the melting of the poles and the rising of the sea levels enveloping
low lying islands in the Pacific. A very sensible letter written to the editor
in The Dominion newspaper, 27 March 2002, called "My Eye...
Flinders University in Australia has a research team which
has been investigating sea level changes around the Pacific. A new, improved,
set of Seaframe tide gauges were installed at sites on 11 Pacific Islands in
1993, and the results have now been published.
Over the past 6.8 years, the sea level at Tuvalu fell
by 8.69 centimetres and at Kiribati it fell by 11.74 centimetres.
Why is Lianne Dalziel (March 23) convinced that the people
from Tuvalu and Kiribati are being 'displaced by rising seas'? Why is there
a need to resettle these people in New Zealand? VINCENT GRAY, Crofton Downs"
Thank you Mr Gray, it is always a privilege to read a
sensible letter to the editor.
We never cease to be amazed at those who seem to know the
answer to every question and yet should we wish to be humbled by Almighty God,
we would suggest a careful reading of Job chapter 38, where for example, we read
in verses 8 & 11, references to the way God has the sea bound up in certain
Job 38:8 "Or who shut up the sea with doors, when it brake
forth, as if it had issued out of the womb?"
Verse 11: "And said, Hitherto shalt thou come, but no
further: and here shall thy proud waves be stayed?"
All we can say to that is blessed be the name of the Lord. He
knows what He's doing.
