One Response to Disaster in the Gulf: A Plague to Warn Us to Change Our Relationship to the Earth

  1. daughter of the 1 true God July 9, 2011 at 8:47 am

    the 1 true God is giving His final hour of mercy! There is a time that’s sooner than you know, 1/3 of the ocean water will be polluted, 1/3 of the world’s fresh water supply will be polluted and because of this 1/3 of the worlds ocean animals will die. 1/3 of the moon and sun’s light will be taken away. There will come an earthquake so dangerous that the world will never know until it comes ,there will also be a huge meteorshower. And this is just the begging the whole economic and political system will crash. But don’t let the first 3 1/2 years of peace fool you. By the end of the 7 years only 1/3 of the earth’s population will be left standing.

    A new earth is coming that not many people will see. God isn’t crying out to take care of earth, he’s crying out for you to accept His Son Jesus and let Him change you so you can escape everything that is about to happen! Mother earth and Gaia are fake goddesses! God is not pleased with them and whoever made them up. The tribulation is coming sooner than you know! Hurry accept Jesus and let Him change you before its too late. If you do you will get to help govern earth for 1000 years after the tribulation and get to see new earth. Why preserve this earth when you can take care of a new earth?

    Look around, everything you see is temporary now look in a mirror. Where are YOU going? Jesus is the only way to life.
