Extinction Level Event
Extinction Level Event
Genesis 1:26-31, “Then Yahweh said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27So Yahweh created man in His own image; in the image of Yahweh He created him; male and female He created them. 28Then Yahweh blessed them, and Yahweh said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
29And Yahweh said, “See, I have given you every herb that yields seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree whose fruit yields seed; to you it shall be for food. 30Also, to every beast of the earth, to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, in which there is life, I have given every green herb for food”; and it was so. 31Then Yahweh saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.”
About 6,000 years ago, Yahweh created mankind to rule over the earth, to have dominion over Yahweh’s creation. We were to care for the creation that Yahweh had made for us. We were created to be the gardeners and caretakers of this once beautiful planet. Yahweh provided us with food and the seeds to perpetually grow our own food. Life was wonderful on this new green earth for a short while, until Adam and Eve sinned. Since then, it’s been a struggle to grow good healthy food. Oh yeah, kids, food does not grow on grocery store shelves, it grows in dirt, the good old soil of the earth. Well, we’ve done ok in growing our own food, up until about 100 years ago, about the time we started world wars and began killing each other wholesale.
I just read a disturbing article from National Geographic found here: http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/2011/07/food-ark/siebert-text titled Food Ark. Here’s one paragraph from that article that should chill you to the bones: “Food varieties extinction is happening all over the world—and it’s happening fast. In the United States an estimated 90 percent of our historic fruit and vegetable varieties have vanished. Of the 7,000 apple varieties that were grown in the 1800s, fewer than a hundred remain. In the Philippines thousands of varieties of rice once thrived; now only up to a hundred are grown there. In China 90 percent of the wheat varieties cultivated just a century ago have disappeared. Experts estimate that we have lost more than half of the world’s food varieties over the past century. As for the 8,000 known livestock breeds, 1,600 are endangered or already extinct.” (Emphasis mine throughout)
I believe humans worry too much about non-essentials and things they can do nothing about, like Planet X, comet Elenin, earthquakes, tsunamis, tornadoes, etc. We should be a little more concerned about growing food and obtaining clean drinking water. Yeshua stated in Matthew 24:7, “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places.” Yeshua went on to say that these famines will happen BEFORE the tribulation, as the beginnings of sorrows. That means we won’t be raptured BEFORE the famines strike. That should concern all of us. I’m not a greenie, or an environmentalist, but I do like to eat. I’m not a big save-the-planet kind of guy. We can’t save the planet any more than we can save our souls. We’re supposed to be doubling our food production, not killing off whole varieties of edibles. We are supposed to be good stewards of what Yahweh has provided for us, not destroying what sustains our very physical lives. I encourage any of you who have access to good heirloom seeds to donate some of these seeds to a seed bank near you.
The fourth horseman of the apocalypse includes famine, Revelation 6:7-8, “When He opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature saying, “Come and see.” 8So I looked, and behold, a pale horse. And the name of him who sat on it was Death, and Hades followed with him. And power was given to them over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword, with hunger, with death, and by the beasts of the earth.” Whether or not you know it or believe it, the four horsemen of the apocalypse have been riding for about a hundred years now. Like it or not, we are in the end times. I hope you’re prepared to meet it and your Maker.
If you are interested in more information on the Elenin comet, or coming fiasco, surf here: http://alamongordo.com/general/elenin-timeline/ We were supposed to experience a lot of damage on August 17, 2011 CE, but it didn’t happen, so I don’t put a lot of stock in end-time predictions. If there is a Planet X out there that is approaching earth and lining up with the sun and planets of our solar system, great, bring on the end. It’s time to see Yeshua’s kingdom established on planet earth. Just the other day we had 13 earthquakes in Colorado, we didn’t feel any of them. You can read more about them here: http://www.kktv.com/home/headlines/128228203.html Coloradans, that was a warning shot over the Rockies. Unless we repent, we will all likewise perish. There is a time coming when Yahweh will deal with all the mountains of the world, Revelation 16:17-21, “Then the seventh angel poured out his bowl into the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, “It is done!” 18And there were noises and thunderings and lightnings; and there was a great earthquake, such a mighty and great earthquake as had not occurred since men were on the earth. 19Now the great city was divided into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. And great Babylon (America) was remembered before Yahweh, to give her the cup of the wine of the fierceness of His wrath. 20Then every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. 21And great hail from heaven fell upon men, each hailstone about the weight of a talent. Men blasphemed Yahweh because of the plague of the hail, since that plague was exceedingly great.”
We are only at the beginning of famines, earthquakes, and mass death. Judgment Day events have not begun yet. When Yahweh gets rolling with Judgment Day, you will see whole cities, states, and nations disappearing. America has a date with destiny, scheduled by Yahweh Himself. Unless we begin to immediately repent of our national sins, we will see this day of destruction sooner, rather than later. The good news is that Yeshua will return, but not until it looks totally hopeless on this rock. Death by starvation is a nasty way to go out of this world, but we sinners have set ourselves up for this end-time hunger scenario. Seven billion people, 1,400 seed banks, you do the math. Just remember, the bad news is good news for believers in Yeshua. Be a good steward and look up to your Redeemer.
