The word "fire" is in the New Testament at least 82 times…26 times in
the Book of Revelation alone. Not all deal with the end of our world, but there are many. And just one would be enough. Phrases
like "lake of fire burning with brimstone…and fire came down from God…into the lake of fire and brimstone…hell
were cast into the lake of fire…life was cast into the lake of fire…burneth with fire and brimstone…"
Enough for you?
But a new thought crosses my mind. The sun, recently at this
writing, had spewed out what weathermen called a "strong solar flare," and when God decides to bring about the end
of this world as we know it, the sun could well be a part of His plan. The world will end by fire, you know, just as He used
water the first time. As you may know, in size, the sun is so much larger than earth that, side by side, the earth could hardly
be seen. We’ve already realized that if the earth was a fraction closer to the sun, that we would burn up, and if it
were that fraction farther away from the sun, the earth would freeze.
made it just so for us, couldn’t He use it to bring about the prophecy of fire, next time? Bible scholars have tried
to interpret the Book of Revelation, I suppose since John wrote about his vision, but I haven’t seen any comment as
to the sun and its power.
However God chooses to bring on that Great Judgment
Day, there will be persons "cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone" (Rev. 19:20). And satan will
included with them. Revelation 20:10 says, "And the devil that deceived
them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and
night for ever and ever." The Judgment will then come, "And whosoever was not found written in the book of life
was cast into the lake of fire" (Revelation 20:15).
for me to want to avoid it, and the Only Way is the Christian Way.
God has kept
the sun burning since time began, without its size changing a whit. That’s miraculous, in itself. If you’re ready
to miss that, be thankful. If you’re not, be scared. And get in touch with Jesus Christ, to get off the "endangered
