On July 27th, the U.N. Secretary General Antonio Guterres issued a dire warning: “The era of global warming has ended, the era of global boiling has arrived.” According to World Weather Attribution (WWA) which analyzed worldwide weather patterns and statistics, the month of July was possibly the hottest period in Planet Earth’s 120,000 years of history. In the U.S. alone, nearly 1 billion people live in areas at risk of heat advisories; Italy, Spain, and Greece already had consecutive days of excessive heat. The temperature reached upwards to 40 degrees Fahrenheit, forcing many tourist attractions to close. According to the U.S. National Centers for Environmental Prediction, July 3rd, 2023 recorded the hottest average daily air temperature at 17.01° Celsius. Due to the recent weather extremes, disasters such as wildfires, hurricanes, and floods have repeatedly appeared in escalation around the world. What is even more worrisome is the rise in the ocean’s temperature and its implications on the future of humankind. Dr. Gregory C. Johnson of National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) pointed out that we need to determine if this is an isolated one-time occurrence or the beginning of a worsening trend. If these extreme temperatures persist, we must devise new ways to protect our environment. The bad news is, the oceans absorb 90% of the earth’s heat. The rising ocean temperature has been breaking its own record temperatures for four consecutive years.
Since the advancement of human civilizations, the increase in population along with the rapid industrialization of production, has devastated our environment and led to climate change. Though this is an undeniable fact, governments have not responded to these dire scientific observations. This touches on prophecy as stated in Revelations 16:9, “They were seared by the intense heat and they cursed the name of God, who had control over these plagues, but they refused to repent and glorify him.” According to the Bible, God is the creator of all things, even natural disasters. Due to humankind’s sinful nature, the natural order of God’s creation went awry. Though we have endured two world wars, disasters and catastrophes have not diminished. Scientists have issued repeated warnings for humans to take heed, yet the destruction continues. Likewise, the fall of humanity would become a global phenomenon.
In Noah’s time, the world was destroyed by floods. At endtime, the earth will be burned by horrible fires. Jesus’ second coming would sound just like this: “But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare. Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming. That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat. But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells” (2 Peter 3:10-13).
According to Revelations 20:15, “Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.” Is your name written in the book of life? If you’re not sure, pray this prayer now and accept Jesus Christ as your savior. He was nailed on the cross for our sins, died on the cross, and resurrected on the 3rd day. He can forgive all your sins; you will then have eternal life. Here’s the prayer:
“Dear Lord, thank you for this message and the ability to reconnect with others. I want to accept you into my life and have my name written in the book of life. In Jesus’ name, Amen!”

Every person in this world has the freedom to choose; however, this personal freedom is limited and conditional. We all can choose what we like and how we do things, when it is bound by the situation or legal constraints.
Storm surge causes inundation of large swaths of coastal land. Eleven years ago, storm surge from Hurricane Sandy havocked large damages in New York (NY) and New Jersey (NJ). Today, some of those destructions are still noticeable and remain unrepaired.
Autumn is pleasant. It has many public holidays for the most populous countries in the northern hemisphere. In the U.S. we have Labor Day, Columbus Day and the Veterans Day. In China there are Mid-Autumn Festival and Double-Yang Festival.
When people think of Thanksgiving, we often think of the bountiful feast with turkey and other dishes. How often do people remember the treacherous journey of the Puritans, who came upon the shores of North America on the Mayflower and their harrowing experience as they settled upon Provincetown, Massachusetts?
In the article I wrote last time, I shared three characteristics of truth with you. First, the truth is fact. Second, truth is trustworthy. Third, truth is correct. Besides these, truth has the following characteristics as well:
“What is truth?” Pontius Pilate, the Governor who judged Jesus, had also asked this question. The Bible records that Pilate returned to the palace, summoned Jesus and asked him, “Are you the king of the Jews?”
We were all stunned by the apocalyptic scenes of devastation and destitution caused by wildfires in Maui, HI. The utter sense of desolation and desperation was overwhelmingly sad. It destroyed the idyllic Island of Maui. Many people are still in denial and disbelief when they look at the news reports.
There are countless great works of literature in the world, but only the Bible is the foremost book of wonder. Not only are there ancient manuscripts of it and hold the records of having the most translations, but also there are numerous authors to the Bible as well.

Heatwaves in many parts of the Northern Hemisphere captured the public’s attention. The inadequacy of the central air conditioning units in many of the northern cities testifies to the unexpected increase in air temperature across Northern Europe, Asia and America.
