What do we make of COP26?

What do we make of COP26? Much media space has been taken up in assessing the achievements of COP26, the climate change summit. Whatever else is said, it is good to see such effort going into repairing the damage done by Humankind. People in low-lying lands are threatened by rising sea levels and the long-term impact on the natural world could be disastrous. So what was the result of the COP26 discussions? A lot was positive. Agreements and promises to make improvements were welcomed, but it has to be said most people have reservations as well. Some nations refused to make essential commitments and some of the agreements have get-out clauses making them potentially weaker. In the end we will just have to wait and see. Will the promises be kept? Will nations which are lagging behind finally get onboard? Only time will tell. But Bible believers have no doubt that the climate problem will be solved. Not by Humankind, but by the return of the Lord Jesus Christ to the earth. He will come to transform the world which will become the Kingdom of God. All the damage done by men and women will be removed and the earth will be as God intended at Creation. Talk about climate change! We read that: ‘The desert shall rejoice and blossom as the rose’ (Isaiah 35:1, NKJV) and ‘There will be an abundance of grain in the earth, on the top of the mountains’ (Psalm 72:16). Have you ever seen corn growing on the top of a mountain? Jesus will change our world beyond recognition. And this wonderful hope can be relied on because Bible prophecies about our current age have been fulfilled, so we know God’s purpose is moving towards the setting up of His Kingdom. pershore.bible pershore-christadelphians.com
