The Word of Yah/God is clear on what climate change is and what it is not. This sermon will look at our Bibles and other books that gives us vital information on what is really going on.
What is Climate Change?- (National Geographic)
Climate change is the long-term alteration of temperature and typical weather patterns in a place. Climate change could refer to a particular location or the planet as a whole. Climate change may cause weather patterns to be less predictable. These unexpected weather patterns can make it difficult to maintain and grow crops in regions that rely on farming because expected temperature and rainfall levels can no longer be relied on. Climate change has also been connected with other damaging weather events such as more frequent and more intense hurricanes, floods, downpours, and winter storms.
What is Global Warming?-Encyclopedia Britannica
These data indicate that Earth’s climate has changed over almost every conceivable timescale since the beginning of geologic time and that the influence of human activities since at least the beginning of the Industrial Revolution has been deeply woven into the very fabric of climate change.
According to Encyclopedia Britannica, global warming has been occurring for the past 100-200 (a century or centuries) years according to science due to the industrial revolution causing the air temperatures to increased. According to science global warming has only occurred since 1821 (2 centuries) or since 1921 (1 century).
What Are Greenhouse Gases?-NASA.gov
Besides CO2 there are other greenhouse gases. These include water vapor, methane, nitrous oxide, and ozone. Without any greenhouse gases, Earth would be an icy wasteland. Greenhouse gases keep our planet livable by holding onto some of Earth’s heat energy so that it doesn’t all escape into space. This heat trapping is known as the greenhouse effect.
Just as too little greenhouse gas makes Earth too cold, too much greenhouse gas makes Earth too warm. Over the last century, humans have burned coal, oil, and gasoline in our cars, trucks, planes, trains, power plants, and factories. Burning such fossil fuels produces CO2 as a waste product. Putting so much new CO2 into the air has made Earth warmer. If we continue on our current path, we will cause even more warming.
CO2 is a big part of the carbon cycle. The carbon cycle traces carbon's path from the atmosphere, into living organisms, then turning into dead organic matter, going into the oceans, and back into the atmosphere. Scientists describe the cycle in terms of sources (parts of the cycle that add carbon to the atmosphere) and sinks (parts of the cycle that remove carbon from the atmosphere).
The key to keeping everything in balance is for the sources and sinks to have the same amount of CO2.
The most important sinks are the ocean (which includes the seawater itself, the organisms living there, and the sediments on the sea floor) as well as plants and soil on land. The ocean stores most of the world's carbon, but forests are really important too. Forests and oceans each remove around one-fourth of the carbon we humans have added to the atmosphere.
According to NASA, the sinks are the oceans as well as the plants and soil on the land. So how can more exposure of land and more water be a bad thing when water and land are the very instruments that remove CO2 according to NASA and the rest of science?
Another question I had is:
Does the rising water backflow into rivers?- Scientific American
Estuaries at the mouths of rivers have in the past handled rising ocean levels. Sediment that accumulates along the edge of an estuary can raise the level of the land as the sea levels rise. And mangrove swamps, which buffer many a coastal zone around the world, flourish in brackish conditions. But because of our preference for living in coastal areas, and our habit of re-engineering our surroundings accordingly, humans make matters worse by preventing natural processes from managing the change. On the coast, we build roads and buildings, and replace natural buffers like mangrove swamps with dikes and bulkheads to control flooding, which make the problem worse by preventing beach sediment from collecting. And as we dam rivers and create reservoirs, we trap the sediment that would naturally flow down to the sea.
What Does Abba Yah's Word Say about Climate Change and Global Warming?
To answer this question we need to understand what Yah's Word has to say regarding no change in seasons and climate to human influenced changes. We need to look at creation first, then we will talk about the appointed paths of the elements and learn about how seasons, elements and all things regarding nature are set in place.
And on the third day He commanded the waters to pass from off the face of the whole earth into one place, and the dry land to appear.
And the waters did so as He commanded them, and they retired from off the face of the earth into one place outside of this firmament, and the dry land appeared.
And on that day He created for them all the seas according to their separate gathering-places, and all the rivers, and the gatherings of the waters in the mountains and on all the earth, and all the lakes, and all the dew of the earth, and the seed which is sown, and all sprouting things, and fruit-bearing trees, and trees of the wood, and the garden of Eden, in Eden and all plants after their kind. These four great works God created on the third day. And on the fourth day He created the sun and the moon and the stars, and set them in the firmament of the heaven, to give light upon all the earth, and to rule over the day and the night, and divide the light from the darkness.
The Wind has appointed paths and origins for All 4 divisions of the earth: north, south, east and west.
Enoch 76- whole chapter
1. And at the ends of the earth I saw twelve portals open to all the quarters (of the heaven), from which the winds go forth and blow over the earth. 2. Three of them are open on the face (i.e. the east) of the heavens, and three in the west, and three on the right (i.e. the south) of the heaven, and three on the left (i.e. the north). 3. And the three first are those of the east, and three are of the north, and three [after those on the left] of the south, and three of the west.
4. Through four of these come winds of blessing and prosperity, and from those eight come hurtful winds: when they are sent, they bring destruction on all the earth and on the water upon it, and on all who dwell thereon, and on everything which is in the water and on the land.
5. And the first wind from those portals, called the east wind, comes forth through the first portal which is in the east, inclining towards the south: from it come forth desolation, drought, heat, and destruction. 6. And through the second portal in the middle comes what is fitting, and from it there come rain and fruitfulness and prosperity and dew; and through the third portal which lies toward the north come cold and drought.
7. And after these come forth the south winds through three portals: through the first portal of them inclining to the east comes forth a hot wind. 8. And through the middle portal next to it there come forth fragrant smells, and dew and rain, and prosperity and health. 9. And through the third portal lying to the west come forth dew and rain, locusts and desolation.
10. And after these the north winds: from the seventh portal in the east come dew and rain, locusts and desolation. 11. And from the middle portal come in a direct direction health and rain and dew and prosperity; and through the third portal in the west come cloud and hoar-frost, and snow and rain, and dew and locusts.
12. And after these [four] are the west winds: through the first portal adjoining the north come forth dew and hoar-frost, and cold and snow and frost. 13. And from the middle portal come forth dew and rain, and prosperity and blessing; and through the last portal which adjoins the south come forth drought and desolation, and burning and destruction. 14. And the twelve portals of the four quarters of the heaven are therewith completed, and all their laws and all their plagues and all their benefactions have I shown to thee, my son Methuselah.
For more information on the path and courses of the moon and sun, please read Enoch chapters 72-82. Next we will move to Yah's Word regarding how there is No Change to seasons and climate.
No Change in Seasons or Climate
While the earth remaineth H3117 , seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.
We will look at the word remaineth as this word is important. This verse doesn't mean that there will not be a Renewing of Heaven and Earth (Revelation 21:1). This verse means in the appointed times, seedtime, harvest, cold and heat... shall not cease.
This verse means until Yah changes and restores the earth, our seasons, seedtimes, and so on will not cease. Therefore the "threat" of global warming and climate change isn't a threat at all.
Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed H4131 for ever.
removed-H4131-מוֹטmôwṭ, mote; a primitive root; to waver; by implication, to slip, shake, fall:—be carried, cast, be out of course, be fallen in decay, × exceedingly, fall(-ing down), be (re-) moved, be ready, shake, slide, slip.
This verse states that the foundations of the earth will not be out of course. Let us read some more in Psalm 104.
He sendeth the springs into the valleys, which run among the hills.
He watereth the hills from his chambers: the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy works.
He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth;
Everything is ordained according to Yah by His Word.
Wisdom of Solomon 7:17-21
Changes Due to Mankind's Defilement of the Land
And I brought you into a plentiful country, to eat the fruit thereof and the goodness thereof; but when ye entered, ye defiled H2930 my land, and made mine heritage an abomination.
The word defiled is important and is H2930
When the people of the land are unclean meaning all of the above outline of usage...that land becomes desolate. We find an example of this in the Book of Jubilees 11 where we learn about ravens eating seeds and the land was barren. The ravens leave when Abram turns to Abba Yah and began to pray to The Creator of All things.
We learn in Jubilees chapter 6 about what happens when we stray away from the ordained paths and make our own times
We see that the appointed weeks are 52 in a year, we learn that the year should be only 364 days and this change long term effects the observation of the moon and when to plant or harvest... causing the years and seasons to go wrong.
22 So that the Lord could no longer bear, because of the evil of your doings, and because of the abominations H8441 which ye have committed; therefore is your land a desolation H2723, and an astonishment H8047, and a curse, without an inhabitant, as at this day.
23 Because ye have burned incense, and because ye have sinned against the Lord, and have not obeyed the voice of the Lord, nor walked in his law, nor in his statutes, nor in his testimonies; therefore this evil is happened unto you, as at this day.
Abominations-H8441-תּוֹעֵבַהtôwʻêbah, to-ay-baw'; or תֹּעֵבַה tôʻêbah; feminine active participle of H8581; properly, something disgusting (morally), i.e. (as noun) an abhorrence; especially idolatry or (concretely) an idol:—abominable (custom, thing), abomination.
desolation:H2723-חׇרְבָּהchorbâh, khor-baw'; feminine of H2721; properly, drought, i.e. (by implication) a desolation:—decayed place, desolate (place, -tion), destruction, (laid) waste (place).
astonishment-H8047-שַׁמָּהshammâh, sham-maw'; from H8074; ruin; by implication, consternation:—astonishment, desolate(-ion), waste, wonderful thing.
The Definition of consternation: feelings of anxiety or dismay, typically at something unexpected.
Droughts are brought on by disobedience to Yah's Word and not by global warming or climate change. The feelings of dismay and anxiety because the land changes, like coastal lands and lands that are being unveiled due to change in sea water levels, or storms that are violent and destructive are caused by disobedience to Abba Yah's Word.
Because people do not heed to Yah's Word, when He brings about droughts, famine, changes in the land, people make up things rather than Turning to Yah's Word for the truth and this is what we see with global and climate change: a panic of anxiety that can easily go away if the world, nations, counties... would repent.
What does Yah's Word Say about our lands being fruitful due to Obedience?
3 If ye walk in my statutes, and keep my commandments, and do them;
4 Then I will give you rain in due season, and the land shall yield her increase, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit.
5 And your threshing shall reach unto the vintage, and the vintage shall reach unto the sowing time: and ye shall eat your bread to the full, and dwell in your land safely.
6 And I will give peace in the land, and ye shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid: and I will rid evil beasts out of the land, neither shall the sword go through your land.
2 Chronicles 34:31-22
31 And the king stood in his place, and made a covenant before the Lord, to walk after the Lord, and to keep his commandments, and his testimonies, and his statutes, with all his heart, and with all his soul, to perform the words of the covenant which are written in this book.
32 And he caused all that were present in Jerusalem and Benjamin to stand to it. And the inhabitants of Jerusalem did according to the covenant of God, the God of their fathers.
33 And Josiah took away all the abominations out of all the countries that pertained to the children of Israel, and made all that were present in Israel to serve, even to serve the Lord their God. And all his days they departed not from following the Lord, the God of their fathers.
These verses in 2 Chronicles are very important as this king was very young and made drastic changes and removed the desolation because he purged the land of sin and followed Yah's Words. There is a link at the end of this sermon where you can read more about Josiah.
2 Chronicles 34:1-3
Josiah was eight years old when he began to reign, and he reigned in Jerusalem one and thirty years.
2 And he did that which was right in the sight of the Lord, and walked in the ways of David his father, and declined neither to the right hand, nor to the left.
3 For in the eighth year of his reign, while he was yet young, he began to seek after the God of David his father: and in the twelfth year he began to purge Judah and Jerusalem from the high places, and the groves, and the carved images, and the molten images.
If a child can make changes and chose to turn back to Yah, then so can each and everyone of us. Abram was a young man when he turned away from idols and purged the land in which he lived from abominations. It is time for The Body of Yah to do the same.
Climate change is a lie to hide what is really taking place and that is the Word of Yah doing as He says when uncleanness takes root on the countries, cities and so on.
We have the power to make change, and that change means Turning Back To The True Word of Yah.
