We Should Have Listened!
We should have listened to the climate change scientists. Thankfully, like the former residents of St Kilda, most of the population of Coll and Tiree were evacuated in time. All that remains now of the beautiful Isle of Tiree is the Isle of Hynish (a former Ben) and a few skerries. Extreme weather was not unusual on the island of Tiree. However, it all began with unusual lying water, particularly on the ‘Reef’, and the inundation when it came was sudden and as they say of Biblical proportions. The Golf Ball, as it was affectionately known, stands as a stark reminder that we should have listened; we should have seen it coming.
It’s no joke, no April Fool’s Day prank’. Jesus has promised, ‘I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.” The angels assure us, “This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.” The Apostle Paul reminds us, “The Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God.” In the last chapter of the Bible, the voice from heaven declares, “I am coming soon.”
The Bible reveals that God puts people right through their faith in Jesus Christ. (Romans 3)
We should have listened!
