Earth Changes ~ A World in Crisis and Man at the Crossroads
The Bible declares, in Isaiah 24, that the earth will go through many devastating changes until finally, in its last death throws, it will reel to and fro like a drunken man, and shall fall from its axis, and shall never rise again.
If we believe God is the supreme being that placed the earth and stars in the heavens and formed the universe then we must accept, He knows the solution to this worlds physical and natural degeneration.
I refer to the law of atrophy, the law that science tells us is in force with every thing we see in existence. Atrophy means that all we see is in a continual state of degeneration and self destruction. We know that to be true but what we do not know to be true with out reference to the word of God is that there is another dimension which we do not see and that dimension is eternal and does not decay It is called in the Bible, Heaven or the kingdom of God where everything is more real than it is here yet is a spiritual reality not visible to human eyes. When you read the bible you realize what the Lord does is not affected at all by atrophy for example the glory of Gods latter house will be greater than the former house. God removed the former covenant to give a better one. In symbolism they said concerning the water turned into wine he has keep the best till last to name a just a few scriptures. Man always dishes out the best first to titillate and entice, God always admonishes us the best is yet to come.
If all this is true then it behooves us to strive as Jesus said to enter that kingdom for it is not only the singular way to enjoy an existence without atrophy but it is also the only way to avoid the state of eternal decay. Imagine eternity, dwelling in a place where the surroundings are in a continual process of breakdown and destruction but because the spirit is indestructible it can never see decay. That is exactly what the Bible describes as hell. There has to be an eternal place for those spirits who have chosen not to spend it with the Supreme God who created all this goodness. And Hell is simply the place where there is no love, no pity, no friendship, no forgiveness, no truth, no honour, and no justice. Everything our God is not, is what hell is and he who goes there goes by his own election, as he in life declared I don’t want anything to do with God
God himself is the source of life therefore hell has to be the opposite the place of death. God is light therefore hell has to be a place of darkness. God is Holy so hell has to be an abode of sin and evil. And remember we say sin has eternal consequence. That is truer than we realize for sin, if not forgiven will continue its destructive effects for ever, but in a walled pit called the abyss where its effects will be confined to only those trapped within it.
God is a creator so his dwelling place will always be one of expansion hell is the opposite a place of declension but how can a spirit be always declining as it is eternal therefore it must be a place where it is ever in a state of atrophy but never diminishing. A place of constant confusion and paradox, tearing itself apart yet never consumed. And remember only God can forgive and erase sins from ones memory as well as its consequences from creation, so without Gods ability to erase it from our memory we will remember it and regret it with remorse for all eternity no wonder there will be weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth there. Hell has to be a place of fire for fire is what devours and consumes like no other force of destruction even the atom bomb is a process of fire, yet because hell is a place of eternal existence it will continue for ever yet never burn up.
Our world is in its death throws, science has found that the earth is under terrible pressure at its equator this is not only because of the tidal pull of the moon and the force exerted upon it but also by the process of centrifugal force which applies the greatest pull outward at its widest spinning position.
The result of all this pressure creates a distortion at the equatorial region of planet earth and the earth’s girth if you like is distorting immensely and buckling rather violently.
The scripture quoted at the beginning of this articles talks of the Earth reeling to and fro like a drunken man and then falling off her axis never to rise again that is Isaiah 24:20. Well one of the issues science is debating at the moment is the earth spinning off its axis one of the titles for this scientific discovery is entitled the Chandler Wobble.
Chandler was the name of the man who recognized the problem many years ago. It has become much more of a serious topic for discussion now as the polar caps are changing and the magnetic points and fields of the earth are all now collapsing at an alarming rate and as a result they have found and concluded that the earth is about to flip on its axis. They say it is not a matter of if it will happen but a matter of when it will happen as there is no way of stopping it now.
The earth’s inner core is solid; the earths crust measured in multiples of miles is solid also but between the two layers there a molten mass of lava or magma. This allows the crust or surface of the earth to swivel over the core like a giant gyroscope and should the ratios of weight and mass etc change dramatically so will the direction and rotation of the earths crust.
They maintain it has happened in earth’s history before and suggest it took place because of calculations and changes at the time of Noah.
Be that as it may one thing is for sure the word of God is true and needs to be read as fact not assumption, it will happen.
Another major geological change taking place at present is that of the continental shelf of Africa which is breaking up and northern Africa is splitting apart from the south in turn creating a huge valley which will allow the oceans seas to flow in to it. It is separating at an alarming rate. Scientists have been traveling to Ethiopia to view what is known as the Ethiopian rift the rending of the earths surface is happening before their very eyes. Here is an excerpt of their findings with commentary ...
African Continent is Splitting along the Ethiopian Rift creating a New Ocean!
A volcanic mantle is rising beneath Africa splitting the continent apart. According to researchers, it will create a new ocean. The crack in the Earth's surface runs for 2,000 kilometres from Malawi, through Tanzania, Kenya and Ethiopia, to link-up with the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden. The top of the Red Sea lines up with the valley of the Dead Sea, lowest spot on earth, into which the Jordan river flows, some 30 Km East of Jerusalem, down from the Sea of Galilee.
This introduces the Prophecies of Zechariah and Ezekiel.
"God will gather all the nations to Jerusalem. The city will be taken, houses plundered, women ravished. Half the city will go into captivity.
On that day His feet will rest on the Mt. of Olives which faces Jerusalem from the East. The Mt. of Olives will be split in two from East to West, forming a very huge sea.
When that Day comes, living waters will issue from Jerusalem, half of them to the Eastern (original) sea, half to the Western sea (Mediterranean, 55 Km West, Tel Aviv, Jaffa)"
Ezekiel 38 describes this same awesome event.
Looking at the geography of the area mentioned in the Prophecies above, and its relation to the rift mentioned in our news article, stretching across Africa right up to the Jordan valley, 30 Km East of Jerusalem, it is meaningful that the great gorge mentioned in Zech 14:4, which will be formed by the splitting of the Mount of Olives, will run to the Mediterranean Sea (West) and to the East (Jordan Valley rift) carrying waters from Jerusalem. Is it co-incidence that this Prophecy speaks of the water running into the Eastern (original) 'sea'? EAGLE (The Ethiopian-Afar Geophysical Lithospheric Experiment) is a major British initiative by 20 scientists between October 2001 and January 2003, to investigate how the African continent is splitting along the Ethiopian Rift.
This project is sponsored by the Universities of Leicester and Leeds in collaboration with the University of Addis Ababa and Ethiopian government groups.
