We Are Living in the Last Days of this Wicked System
Our loving Heavenly Father foretold that these things would occur throughout his word the Bible. In the books of 2 Timothy, Matthew, Luke and Mark these men were inspired by Jehovah God to explain the things we are experiencing in our lives today. The scripture at 2 Timothy 3:1 sums it up best by stating, “But know this, that in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here.” (New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures) Currently existing are wildfires burning across states like never before. Flooding in areas due to global warming never seen before. Pestilence like this pandemic that we have never experienced. Nations against each other such as Russia using cyberattacks against the United States. Is the worst yet to come? We will see. Regardless our loving God will never allow us to all suffer but will help those who have faith to endure these various tribulations. We must have love and faith that everything will be alright. That is the hope l have for all humanity each day.
Watching the news can be terrifying today. News reporters from CBS This Morning shared the details of massive wildfires and deadly flooding within the remainder of this article.
Wildfires Burn Across More than Twelve States
Warnings By Climate Scientists Are Fulfilled Due to Global Warming
“We know that Climate Scientists have long been warning that global warming would lead to this kind of extreme weather. But when we really think about what’s happening in Central Europe and beyond. Well, that really exceed their expectations. And the real fear now, is the worst yet to come?”

Wildfires Merge and Cause Evacuations
Anthony Mason of the award winning news program CBS This Morning featured a powerful story on, “Massive Oregon Wildfire. The largest wildfire in the US is threatening to merge with another fire.” Anchorman Mason presented this following information:
* The Bootleg fire in southern Oregon has already burned more than 227,000 areas. An area larger than New York City.
* It’s one of more than 70 large fires burning across twelve states in the west.
* The fires destroyed twenty-one homes and misplaced about 2,000 people.
* It’s only 70% contained.
* The fire is expected to continue growing amid extremely dry conditions and hot weather.
Anthony Mason’s news report revealed critical times people are experiencing, ”Evacuations Expand as Fires Threaten to Merge.”
A Disaster that Shocked Even Climate Scientists
“We have manifestly one of the richest countries in the world being caught out. It’s quite disturbing in a sense that it suggests that no one is really safe. Neighboring counties like Belgium and the Netherlands have also been badly affected with several villages still cut off by flood waters and landslides.”
— Climate Scientist, Ralf Toumi, from the Imperial College of London.
Never Happened Before “Deadly Europe Flood” A Sign Of the Last Days
Unfortunately, humans have abused our magnificent planet earth to the point it is now responding negatively through global warming and climate change. Lisa Jackson and Lauren Jerome in their book, The Good Guide to Learning About Climate Change explains a few points about how and why humans brought on these destructive forces to our planet:
* ‘Climate change‘ refers to long-term shifts in weather patterns.
* But modern-day climate change it’s not a naturally occurring phenomenon. It refers to alterations in weather patterns caused by human activities.
* ‘Global warming‘ is one measure of climate change and refers to a rise in the average global temperature. Human activities such as industrialization, deforestation and intensive agriculture have increased emissions of greenhouse gases (we’ll call them GHGs, starting now) causing temperatures to rise.
* Although the climate has shifted throughout the Earth’s history, this is the first time that climate change has been human-caused and happened so rapidly.
* The resulting negative effects of climate change like rising temperatures and sea levels and extreme weather events, have far-reaching social, economic and political implications across every sector of society...”
Humanity‘s greed caused this malediction upon the earth just as 2 Timothy 3:2 explain, ”For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy.” (Holy Bible King James Version)
The effects today are too numerous as CBS This Morning‘s Gayle King reported, “Deadly Europe Flood in Europe now castrophic floods have killed more than 100 people there. Dozens Dead, Missing as Severe Flooding Hits Germany and Belgium. In Germany and Belgium those are the hardest hit countries. Emergency crews are desperately searching for hundreds of people who are still unaccounted for. Record amounts of rain just swept across the region destroying the homes and submerging the communities.“
CBS News Foreign Correspondent Imitaztyab, “A scale of the diaster unlike anything seen here in living memory. Entire neighborhoods now in ruins after days of heavy rains triggered flash flood across large parts of northern Germany. Torrents of water so powerful it crushed much of what stood in its way... In a once quite and picturesque village residents are surveying what’s left. A man that was interviewed said, ‘It’s unreal. I can’t believe what l’m seeing here.’ Dozens of people are dead. Tens of thousands of homes are damaged. And power remains offline. All after the amount of rain that fell over 48 hour period was double that of what normally would have for the entire month of July. Ralf Toumi from the Imperial College of London explained, “We have manifestly one of the richest countries in the world being caught out. It’s quite disturbing in a sense that it suggests that no one is really safe. Neighboring counties like Belgium and the Netherlands have also been badly affected with several villages still cut off by flood waters and landslides.“
News Correspondent Imtiaztyab also stated, “Here’s the thing. We know that Climate Scientists have long been warning that global warming would lead to this kind of extreme weather. But when we really think about what‘s happening in central Europe and beyond. Well, that really exceeded their expectations. And the real fear now is the worst is yet to come.”
Through what Jehovah God’s holy Bible foretold about the last days, we continue to experience enough disasters, volence and pestilences. Now it is not only a matter of faith in God’s promises that he will not allow our beautiful earth to be destroyed or allow wicked people to continue to exist. That’s the good news about the last days. What a positive thought for the future of all humankind. One day we will live on our awesome planet in peace, without fear of diasters or anything. What a wonderful time that will be for each of us in the future.
