On June 28, 2023, King Charles III and London Mayor Sadiq Khan activated a “climate clock” with the warning that there are 6 years and 24 days left to limit global warming before it brings doom upon the world. Remarkably, the king included minutes and seconds in his countdown to the ruin of the world due to climate change.
Despite the lengthy history of planet Earth, King Charles III apparently knows to the second how much time we have left before the doom of civilization due to global warming. Amazing!
He emphasizes “global renewables”; however, the means of capturing such sources of energy are not renewable. They are subject to weather conditions and highly toxic to the environment when their usefulness expires.
It’s curious that the king’s clock ends five months short of 2030. Why not make it line up with the UN’s “7 Years of Accelerated, Transformative Action to Achieve SDGs,” which extends a little beyond the start of 2030? (The SDGs are the seventeen “Sustainable Development Goals” that the UN put in place eight years ago through which they intend to establish a one-world government.)
There’s no climate emergency; it’s all a ruse to scare people and thereby subject them to draconian measures of the globalists, which will enable them to fulfill their dream of ruling over a worldwide empire.
The radical policies advocated by the environmental extremists neither protect nature nor do they represent a biblical worldview.
One Hundred Years of Failed Predictions
As we listen to climate alarmists such as King Charles III warn us of impending doom, it’s essential to recognize they have a long history of making false predictions. Consider this quote from an Associated Press report published in the Washington Post:
The Arctic Ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer, and in some places, the seals are finding the water too hot. Reports from fishermen, seal hunters, and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard-of temperatures in the Arctic zone. Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes. Within a few years, it is predicted that due to the ice melt, the sea will rise and make most coastal cities uninhabitable. [i]
Although this sounds very much like it could have been a story written in 2023, the above quote appeared in the Washington Post on November 2, 1922, one hundred years ago!
Since then, predictions of disaster because of climate change have continued unabated. The Earth Day predictions of 1970 included the end of human civilization in thirty years, with deaths due to starvation to reach one to two hundred million per year by 1980.
Al Gore received a Nobel Prize in 2007 for his prognostications of doom due to global warming. He told us that by 2014, the Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets would completely vanish, which would cause sea levels to rise twenty feet. Gore received three hundred million dollars as a result of his activism during the past twenty years, but what about his forecasts of doom? None of them happened. Instead, the Antarctic and Greenland covering of ice grew during the time that Gore said they would vanish.
The former Vice President used his newly acquired wealth to purchase a mansion near the ocean, which would’ve been totally destroyed had his dire predictions become reality.
The Prophetic Implications of the “Climate Emergency”
In previous posts, I have discussed the fallacies of the climate alarmists’ beliefs. In 3 Climate Myths Spread by the Globalists, I debunk many of the warnings we hear from them. Below I discuss the implications for biblical prophecy that are evident in King Charles’ III climate clock of doom.
- The Rapture Is Ever So Close
Even though the time remaining on his clock ends before 2030, King Charles III, like all other globalists, seems obsessed with changing the world before that year. If we didn’t live at a time of the convergence with a multitude of signs clearly pointing to the nearness of the Tribulation period, this might not have as much significance. However, we absolutely live in just such an era.
The Bible tells us that a world government will exist during the Tribulation period, and it will be the one that the antichrist will assume control of. The fact that a majority of world leaders have 2030 as their goal for the implementation of just such a kingdom tells us that Jesus’ coming for His church is exceedingly close. We live in the season of His appearing.
- The Globalists Thrive on Chaos
The powerbrokers of our day know they can’t institute a new world order if everyone is satisfied with the status quo; they need the upheaval of societal norms so that people will accept their extreme measures as the answer. This is why Emmanuel Macron, the President of France, did almost nothing to stop the recent mass rioting in France. As a globalist, he thrives on chaos.
It’s for this same reason that they push the false climate agenda; they need disorder, the more the better, to achieve their dreams. The madness following the Rapture will almost certainly speed up this process as it will give them the menacing instability they need to impose their will on the nations, perhaps much sooner than 2030.
- The Elite Feed on Deception
The Bible tells us that the deception that’s already here will intensify during the seven-year Tribulation; however, the fraud regarding the climate crisis has already reached epic proportions.
Despite the fact that several arsonists have been arrested for starting the multitude of fires in Canada that all began at the exact same time, the official line is that they resulted from global warming. That’s just one small example of the duplicity pushed on the world by those seeking to create panic with a false narrative.
Everything is precisely the opposite of how it appears. The globalists need ecological disasters to further their cause. The chemical trails we see in the skies, the attempts to change weather plans, and President Biden’s “recent” initiative to block to sun will not end well. Is it not suspicious that nearly all the recent train derailments in America spill toxic chemicals, creating environmental disasters? I don’t believe they are “accidents.”
The blatant hypocrisy of the elite pushing the narrative of doom seems to go unnoticed by their ardent disciples. The leading climate alarmists each own several mansions, possess a great many vehicles for both land and sea, and fly everywhere in the world in their private jets. According to their own standards for saving the planet, they are far less considerate of the environment than the average citizen.
- The Powerbrokers of Our Day Are Motivated by the Spirit of the Antichrist
We know from 2 Thessalonians 2:3-8 that the antichrist can’t reveal himself as the “man of lawlessness” until after the Rapture. However, it makes sense that Satan would prepare the way for this, which is exactly why we see the spirit of the antichrist already busily at work in our world.
The elite powerbrokers march in lockstep with King Charles III even though they all know his prediction of environmental doom is based on erroneous science. It’s all about deceiving people so they will accept the draconian and deadly measures they propose.
On May 18, 2023, the US climate czar, John Kerry, stated that there must be a drastic reduction in US farming in order to combat global warming. Below is a quote from him:
A lot of people have no clue that agriculture contributes about 33% of all the emissions of the world. We can’t get to net zero, we don’t get this job done unless agriculture is front and center as part of the solution. So all of us understand here the depths of this mission. [ii]
He says it will save the lives of many people, but in reality, these fabricated “green” policies will lead to the mass murder of tens of millions, if not many more, in just the U.S.
As reported in Daymond Duck’s weekly prophecy update on Rapture Ready, according to a June 28, 2023, article on the World Net Daily (WND), the staff reported that UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has called for the immediate and global destruction of the world’s energy industry because, he claims, fossil fuels are “incompatible with human survival.”
Please know that the fuels upon which the population of the world is dependent didn’t result from decaying dinosaurs but are God’s gracious provisions to support the current population. Billions of people totally depend upon energy that comes from coal, oil, and natural gas for their survival and would die if these sources of energy suddenly ended.
These things are truly the work of the devil whom the Lord correctly labeled as a “liar” and a “murderer” in John 8:44. This is none other than the “spirit of antichrist” that the apostle mentioned in 1 John 4:3 as already active in the world. Now that the last days have arrived, one can’t miss its greatly increased activity.
Just like Satan himself, the spirit energizing the globalists of our day is both deceptive and murderous; please don’t doubt this even for a moment.
- The Agenda of the Climate Alarmists Foreshadows the Trumpet Judgments of Revelation
The last phrase of Revelation 18:11 aligns well with the deception agenda of the climate alarmists that call for draconian measures to avoid certain doom.
“The nations raged, but your wrath came, and the time for the dead to be judged, and for rewarding your servants, the prophets and saints, and those who fear your name, both small and great, and for destroying the destroyers of the earth.” (Emphasis added)
At the time of the seventh trumpet (Revelation 11:15), the twenty-four elders worshipping God portray His wrath as “destroying the destroyers of the earth.” The globalists such as King Charles III are fervently working behind the scenes so that it appears that the world needs their draconian measures to “save the planet,” but just the opposite is true. They are creating the many environmental crises to which they will have the answer.
Could it be that the ones described in Revelation 18:11 as the “destroyers of the earth” are identical to the elite of our day that tell us we must do all we can to preserve our environment? I believe so.
Remember, in this day of over-the-top deception, everything is just the opposite of what we hear from the UN, the WEF, and the deep state in America. They are all masters of deceit, slaves to the murderous spirit of the antichrist.
Is it not also insightful that the initial trumpet judgments in Revelation 8:1-11 are aimed at the environment? Just as the plagues that God sent upon the Egyptians struck at the gods that they worshipped, the Lord will also strike a blow to today’s worshippers of nature.
The Imminent Appearing of the True King
Is King Charles’ III climate clock of doom prophetically significant? Yes, it’s another reminder that the appearing of Jesus, the King of kings, is ever so close. He’s coming very soon to take His church back to Heaven.
I say this because, first of all, we live at a time when a great many signs of the last days are converging as never before in history, which I explain in 12 Signs the World is Running Out of Normal. We live in biblical times when the Lord is shouting to all who will listen that both His appearing and judgment on the world are imminent.
Second, the climate countdown and lies that support it align with what the Bible tells us about the formation of a one-world government in the last days. The globalists need a dire emergency in order to enslave the world’s population. They have been working for a century to convince people that an environmental catastrophe will happen without their intervention.
All these things demonstrate the nearness of the seven-year Tribulation. It’s during this time that the “destroyers of the earth” will be hailed as the ones saving it. The Lord will respond to the worshippers of nature by demonstrating that He is the One to be honored above everything.
When the King returns to the earth after the Tribulation period, He will gloriously restore nature to its pristine condition as it was before the curse.
It’s because of all these things, and many more, that we know our deliverance is ever so near. We live in a day when there’s nothing more Jesus can do to warn people regarding His soon appearing and the start of the Tribulation.
How is it possible for there to be any more signs of the approaching Tribulation period?
I know the majority who read this post are eagerly awaiting Jesus’ appearing because you recognize the day in which we live. I’m convinced the Lord will richly reward your belief in what the Bible says about the season of Jesus’ appearing in which we live.
I provide a detailed defense of the Pretribulation viewpoint in: The Triumph of the Redeemed-An Eternal Perspective that Calms Our Fears in Perilous Times. A lifetime of defending the pre-Tribulation Rapture comes to life on the pages of this book. A lifetime of defending the pre-Tribulation Rapture comes to life on the pages of this book. And you will understand my passion for warning people about what’s to come.
