IS IT REALLY THAT HOPELESS?

The historian Will Durant made this comment:
“There is not greater drama in human record then the sight of a few Christians, scorned and oppressed by a succession of emperors, bearing all trials with a fearless tenacity, multiplying quietly, but building order, while the enemy generated chaos. Fighting the sword with the Word of God, brutality with hope and at last defeating the strongest empire that history has ever known.
Caesar and Christ had met in the arena, and Christ had won.”

Chuck Swindoll in his commentary on these verses writes:
“During the interval of time between our Lord’s departure from the earth and His return, He is involved in two projects. One; to prepare a place for His children. Two; to prepare His children for a place. He is engaged right now in preparing heaven for His own. That’s what’s happening away from our sight. But on this earth, He is also engaged in preparing us for the life we will live in eternity with Him.”

The Four Trumpets

Remember, the first 4 trumpets will deal with the environment, the ecological system, or what people today call Global warming, now renamed Climate Change. None of the judgments released by these 4 trumpets have anything to do with political, social or economic systems of this world. God will take care of that later on.
There is a time coming when people are more concerned about rain forests, global warming, endangered species, spotted owls, whales, condors, and trees, than they are about people and their spiritual and physical wellbeing. People worship “mother nature” which is idolatry.
While it is true that man has failed in his responsibility to properly care for God’s creation, trying to compensate for this failure by starting to worship the creation instead of the creator is utter nonsense.
Woe to the inhabitants of the earth… This is a descriptive term used for those who have repeatedly rejected the offer of Salvation, who will not repent even though they know without a thought that the things they have witnessed up to this point is directly linked to God’s final judgment of mankind before He sets up His kingdom on this earth.
