After reading the Living Planet Index, my colleague emailed me and asked me an interesting question. This was extracts of our brief email conversation:
Colleague: Is it really true we have 20 years left at this rate of natural depletion?
Me: The truth is… we really do not know. Reason being is that we do not have the exact figures of what we really have on earth to begin with. It is impossible to take stock of the entire earth’s resources.
Colleague: Hmmm… true.
Me: But back to your question. In my opinion, I don’t think we have 20 years left. My personal belief is that the God who created this earth and people will continue to provide as He has over the generations. The real question is whether some people are hoarding the earth resources for selfish reasons and not spreading it out for others to have equal access to them.
Colleague: I agree with you.

Are you sure that the earth has plenty of resources left for everyone to access? Do you seriously believe that God will send the birds to bring the believers food?
Evidence is often mentioned in Old Testament and New Testament as well.
What evidence are you referring to that is often mentioned in Old Testament and New Testament as well?
Evidence that earth has plenty of resources for everyone? Or God will send the birds to bring believers food?
Your comment is rather incoherent.
Well, do you know the true story of Elijiah and Joseph?
Joseph saved many lives by advising the civil servants to store up rice for 7 years to feed many people and even the rest of the world. Imagine, if it is not for Joseph, the world was dying of serious famine.
Read Genesis 41: 29-31 – “Seven years of great abundance are coming throughout the land of Egypt, 30 but seven years of famine will follow them. Then all the abundance in Egypt will be forgotten, and the famine will ravage the land. 31 The abundance in the land will not be remembered, because the famine that follows it will be so severe.”
It will tell us that the world will be in last days as prophesied. Drought and famine and earthquake will be on rampagne. In other words, less food and water will be experienced in time to come.
During Elijah’s time, he was brought some food by a bird that was sent by God during severe famine or drought. It tells us that it is possible that no resources left on the earth in the last days is prophesied by God.
Do you know that God will send the birds to bring some food to the believers in the last days?
what is your comment?
