Earthquakes, Tsunamis, Mudslides: Extreme Events - What do they Mean?

In a more comprehensive Article from Progress in Physical Geography, Sudden Climate Transitions duringrepparttar Quaternary, Scientists found thatrepparttar 110082 `...time span ofrepparttar 110083 past few million years has been punctuated by many rapid climate transitions, most of them on time scales of centuries to decades or even less...' and `...Judging by its past behavior under both glacial and interglacial conditions, climate has a tendency to remain quite stable for most ofrepparttar 110084 time and then suddenly `flip'; at least sometimes over just a few decades, due torepparttar 110085 influence ofrepparttar 110086 various triggering and feedback mechanisms..."

This, in relation to magnetic pole shifts would inevitably and theoretically explain dramatic climate transitions. Since 1990, surface waters in tropical and subtropical Atlantic Ocean regions became markedly saltier, while atrepparttar 110087 same time, much ofrepparttar 110088 water column inrepparttar 110089 high altitudes ofrepparttar 110090 North and South Atlantic Oceans became fresher. See Report: New Study Reports Large-scale Salinity Changes inrepparttar 110091 Oceans

My own theory is as such: Seismological Events = Polar Shifts = Climatic Changes = Global Warming = Sea Level Rise = Continued Seismological Events = etc., etc., etc. In other words, seismological events brought on by nature or manmade contraptions, isrepparttar 110092 beginning of a vicious cycle.

To further fuelrepparttar 110093 debate of greenhouse effects directly attributed by sea level rise, `Glacial Melt Alarms Scientists,' as reported by Terry Rombeck of Journal-World, Prasad Gogineni (Kansas Univ. Researcher) stated, "...I don't think sea-level rise is an immediate concern. You're talking aboutrepparttar 110094 long term, 50 or 100 years. Butrepparttar 110095 assumptions we've made are based on gradual increases over 100 years. What we're seeing are dramatic increases."

Overall,repparttar 110096 Earth, as we know it is inconceivably changing before our eyes. It is still not too late to make our own transitions in how we proceed with this newfound knowledge. The key to scientific research and global climatic/geological phenomena is that we, as human beings, haverepparttar 110097 inevitable power to implement strategic changes that can ultimately reverse or at least slowrepparttar 110098 effects of our own ability to inhabit this Earthly plane. In so,repparttar 110099 solution lies within us all. The only difference between mankind's survival and mass-level extinction is whether or not we choose to userepparttar 110100 solution.

What sin unleased is notrepparttar anger of a God who chooses to bring about punitive measures against innocent victims. Rather, natural disasters arerepparttar 110081 on-going evidence of a cursed world. In this world both righteous and unrighteous, young and old, innocent and criminal, fall under this curse that fell uponrepparttar 110082 earth. God does not sit in Heaven and decide to zap areas ofrepparttar 110083 planet out of a vendetta against humanity. Rather, as inrepparttar 110084 case of this recent disaster, mankind has again come face to face withrepparttar 110085 reality ofrepparttar 110086 curse portrayed through unbalanced natural phenomena. But God did not instituterepparttar 110087 curse upon all creation and simply leave it to wreak its devastation willi-nilly.

What is truly amazing isrepparttar 110088 fact that in God's prophetic program to deal withrepparttar 110089 sin of mankind, He has provided a plan of salvation which will bring those who truly repent into perfect communion with Himself, and ultimately, He will restore evenrepparttar 110090 natural elements of "Paradise Lost." The curse will eventually be removed. But He also must allowrepparttar 110091 course of nature to totally unfold until all His prophetic word is complete. Why? Could He not just reverserepparttar 110092 curse? Yes. But He must also give mankindrepparttar 110093 chance to choose to repent. Imperfection, death, and flawed nature, came about as a consequence of man's choice. But mankind has been offered, through Jesus Christ,repparttar 110094 opportunity to choose to be restored to fellowship with God. Otherwise, God would indeed be unjust, and mankind would be relegated torepparttar 110095 role of robotic pawns to be manipulated at will, and man could accuse Him of being a tyrant.

The righteous and innocent have nothing to fear from natural phenomena such asrepparttar 110096 recent earthquake and tsunamis, because this earthly life is not all there is. Mankind is an eternal being. Natural physical death is notrepparttar 110097 end. It isrepparttar 110098 unrighteous who have reason to fear, because they too are eternal, but face perpetual separation from God --repparttar 110099 Second Death inrepparttar 110100 Lake of Fire. Therefore, natural disasters remind each if us ofrepparttar 110101 fact that our personal eternal destiny is of paramount importance, and that each person will one day stand beforerepparttar 110102 Righteous Judge. Jesus Christ, through His shed blood atonement onrepparttar 110103 cross, has made provision forrepparttar 110104 curse of sin and death to be lifted. Each then has a choice to either accept or reject His provision. This world will come out from underrepparttar 110105 curse, but meanwhilerepparttar 110106 course of fallen nature will continue until all is fulfilled. Is God an angry, despotic, unforgiving God? No! In spite of, and inrepparttar 110107 midst of disaster, He has offered mercy and deliverance, not just forrepparttar 110108 natural existence of this life, but more importantly, for eternity!

"For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive." I Corinthians 15:22.

"For we know thatrepparttar 110109 whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now, And not only they, but ourselves also, which haverepparttar 110110 first fruits ofrepparttar 110111 Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting forrepparttar 110112 adoption, to wit,repparttar 110113 redemption of our body." Romans 8:22,23.

The eternal destinies of those who lost their lives must be left in God's hands, because He alone isrepparttar 110114 Righteous, yet merciful, Judge. Did God turn a blind eye torepparttar 110115 disaster? No!! Rather, He knows each victim by name, and His love and mercy are extended and exemplified through those who administer relief and aid.

So, can we blame God for this recent natural disaster? Dare we ascribe either evil intent or abject indifference torepparttar 110116 character of Almighty God? Absolutely not! To do so is to cloud our understanding of who He is, and of His great love and mercy, and His desire to reconcile man and all creation to Himself.
