The in and out of season “violent whirlwind” or if you will, hurricane, cyclone or tornado embedded in the great storms of these “latter days” in which God is having “His way” was specifically foretold (Jeremiah 23:18-20; Nahum 1:3, NKJV). Even as the whirlwinds have been very destructive of late (destroying church properties too), the loss of life here has been minimal. This is because God is graciously expressing just a foretaste of His coming wrath. His heart is to save! Truly, in the day of His wrath and immediately before the return of Christ, God will raise up a global “whirlwind” that will destroy multitudes in every nation, again, as foretold (Jeremiah 25:32-33, 30:23-24)!
Concerning the “whirlwind of the LORD,” He assures “in the latter days you will understand it perfectly” and “you will consider it,” (Jeremiah 23:19a, 20b, 30:23a, 24b, NKJV). Clearly, the “you” refers as a first audience to faithful Jews and Christians that take His prophetic Word to heart! While not a few professed Christians with the many non-Christians in unbelief deny any involvement of God in or His control of the destructive whirlwinds we are seeing in the volatile storms of climate change, like Pharaoh of ancient Egypt they will all eventually come around to the evidence based truth (Exodus 10:1-7, 14:21-31; Psalms 77:11-20, 78:40-53; Isaiah 63:11-14; Joel 3:9-17; Revelation 16)!
Those alive in the day the Lord pours out the climatic fullness of His great wrath upon fake, apostate and non-Christians who had obstinately refused to obey His command to repent will understand the erratic weather patterns, destructive whirlwinds and disasters of climate change we are experiencing right now, were in fact not only early harbingers for it, but also birth pains of the Second Coming and Kingdom of Jesus Christ (Matthew 24:3-8)! With the whirlwinds of climate change ahead are more harbingers of God’s coming wrath and Christ’s return that He will show in the Cosmos and earth’s sky (Isaiah 2:10-11, 13:6-13; Luke 21:11, 25-27; Revelation 6:12-17, 19:11-16).
As I wrote in a previous post, science like Pharaoh’s magicians who in their contest with God were also initially arrogantly confident are being set up for utter humiliation by Him!5 Science and technology are given to His fallen creatures by God--how else could ancient Job have known “the earth hangs on nothing” and is spherical (Job 26; Psalm 94:10, NKJV)? Ultimately they serve His purposes and plans (Exodus 31:1-11). Hundreds of telescopes positioned on earth and above it such as Hubble and the sun orbiting James Webb peer into and photograph deep space. Astronomers will see God’s earliest cosmic signs first and be helpless to do anything about them (Revelation 8:10-13)!
Interestingly, as scientists who fear God as their prime motivation for doing science marvel, the sky of our planet appears purposely designed for us to observe the heavens where “His handiwork” is in full view (Psalm 19:1-6, NKJV).6 On earth, an example of hi-tech knowledge God has recently given mankind is Artificial Intelligence (AI). According to News reports, the inventors of AI are calling for a slowdown in its development because of fear they lack control of it. Too late!7 It is already enabling levels of foretold deception the world has never before seen nor will ever see again after the coming Antichrist finishes exploiting it (2 Thessalonians 2:1-12; Revelation 13:11-18).8
Though the world mostly takes great pains to portray all of the good newly invented technology like AI will do for people, there are always those without the fear of God in their hearts that lay awake at night devising “iniquity,” planning “evil” and rushing the dawn to carry these out “because it is in the power of their hand” to do so.9 Such is the way of those who “hate” correction, exploit, rob, abuse and actually care nothing for the people among whom “the prudent keep silent” in this “evil time” as in every one that has been since the fall of man. Seeing all of this, God also devises, plans and brings “disaster” in judgment and deliverance as responses (Amos 5:10-13; Micah 2:1-5, 7:15-20, NKJV).
Out of the overflowing riches of His love, longsuffering grace and mercy the Lord has had me write to give warning to non-Christians at this hour. Hear it again: if He is bringing judgment within His own house of professed people, what chance of escape or hope of deliverance do you have? As He provides scientific and technical knowledge, God at the same time as Wisdom personified is daily calling out to non-Christians who refuse to give heed; preferring their “own way” which He allows. Nevertheless, the consequences of refusing to obey His command to repent and be saved through faith in Christ only get increasingly more severe going forward. Having rejected God’s wisdom, you will find in the day of calamity the cost of your own way was too great (Proverbs 1:7, 20-33, NKJV)!

9 One purpose of God in teaching mankind advancing technical knowledge is to show us how corrupted our hearts are by sin and especially pride in the stubborn refusal to
consult Him in its use. If insanity is doing the same thing repeatedly looking for a different result, unregenerate mankind fulfills the definition perfectly in the never ending
quest to bring about good from the knowledge God provides without any visitation of evil; not realizing that their fallen, sinful hearts renders such a quest impossible for them
(Jeremiah 17:9; Mark 7:21-23; Romans 3:9-18).
