The now unstoppable melting of the Antarctic ice sheet really scares me. Experts say that it might happen in 200-900 years. Is the rapture coming before we kill ourselves?

Although lots of people try to predict when Jesus will return, the Bible says that it will be a surprise. This question cannot be answered. –  curiousdannii May 19 at 8:57

No, the flooding will probably completely surprise God and mess up all His plans. –  Narnian May 19 at 12:07
    
I'm not scared about something that may happen 200-900 years from now. That's enough time for the wise person to figure out what to do and where to live. –  Steve May 19 at 12:13
    
While we know that Global warming is a fact (Records show a continuous gradual warming ever since the last Ice age), It has not been proven that man can alter the natural order prescribed by God. –  Bye May 19 at 12:17

Is this question only for those that refuse to believe that the Rapture happened nearly 2000 years ago as Jesus said it would? –  gideon marx May 19 at 16:29

We needn't be scared about something that may happen 200-900 years from now. That's enough time for the wise person to figure out what to do and where to live.

Besides, the rainbow reminds us of God's promise (Genesis 9:12-15) that He would never send a flood again.

Is the rapture coming before we kill ourselves? Two points;

Matthew 24; But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

Matthew 24;4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

Preparation for the coming of Jesus is probably what one should be contemplating.
