BIG FAITH (not little Faith, NOT just any Advanced and High-Technology, NOT Solar and Wind Power or any Energy Renewables, NOT multi-billion dollar financing), is the secret to prevent the destructive Climate Change. If ever Man will use Science and Technology to solve Climate Change, it must be coupled with this BIG FAITH in Christ!

ENERGY-CLIMATE WORLD CHALLENGE INITIATIVE
From John Gill's Exposition of the Entire Bible (Gill): A flaming sword, which turned every way; a drawn sword, brandished, and which being very quick in its motion, as it was turned to and fro, glittered and looked like a flame of fire. This is by the hand of the Lord God, that dwelt between the cherubim; for so it may be rendered, "he inhabited the cherubim and that with a flaming sword"; that is, with one in his hand, an emblem of the fiery law of God now broken, and of the fire of divine wrath on the account of that, and of the flaming justice of God, which required satisfaction; and this turning on all sides:
To keep the way of the tree of life; showing, that life and salvation were not to be had, unless the law and justice of God were satisfied; and that they were not to be expected on the foot of men's works, but only through Christ, the way, the truth, and the life; that no happiness was to be looked for from the covenant of works, now broke, nothing but wrath and vengeance; and that there must be another way opened, or there could be no enjoyment of the heavenly paradise. --John Gill's Exposition of the Entire Bible
From Jamieson, Fausset and Brown Commentary (JFB): placed ... cherubim — The passage should be rendered thus: "And he dwelt between the cherubim at the East of the Garden of Eden and a fierce fire, or Shekinah, unfolding itself to preserve the way of the tree of life."
This was the mode of worship now established to show God's anger at sin and teach the mediation of a promised Savior as the way of life, as well as of access to God. They were the same figures as were afterwards in the tabernacle and temple; and now, as then, God said, "I will commune with thee from above the mercy seat, from between the two cherubim" (Exo 25:22). -- JFB
FROM THE CHERUBIM TO JESUS CHRIST!
So when man sinned, a revolving, swirling flames of the sharp two-edged sword was given to Cherubim to safeguard the Tree of Life in the Garden of Eden. But now that the sin of mankind was paid by the death sacrifice of Christ, this swirling two-edged sword is now in the possession of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! (Rev 2:12)
- To the angel of the church in Pergamum write: "The One who has the sharp, two-edged sword says... (Rev 2:12)
The POWER OF STRONG FAITH IS NEEDED TO SOLVE CLIMATE CHANGE!
BIG FAITH, not little Faith, not advanced and High-Technology, is the secret to prevent the destructive Climate Change. If ever Man will use Science and Technology to solve Climate Change, it must be coupled with this BIG FAITH in Christ. It is insanity to use Science and Technology alone, with the same human thinking and attitude, which is the very cause of destructive Climate Change in the first place!
In other words, the cause of the problem of Climate Change is our humanistic goals, desires, and attitudes. How then can we expect to solve the problem, if the solution we are about to use is the very cause of that problem? If Man insists on this approach, his problem-solving method becomes a problem-worsening approach, as we can see the direction of Climate Change -- from BAD TO WORSE!
OUR SOLUTIONS TO CLIMATE CHANGE CAN SUCCEED
ONLY IF COMBINED WITH THE FAITH OF CHRIST!
As explained in Part 1 of this article series, the swirling two-edged sword is constantly revolving between Judgment and Mercy.
According to the Messianic Kabbalah Wisdom, Judgment (Gevurah) is the Left Column, and Mercy (Chesed) is the Right Column. The One that balances or control Judgment and Mercy is the Central Column, called TIFFERET, which corresponds to Jesus Christ.
And for us to pass through the revolving sword, we must acquire that TIFFERET or FAITH, that is between Gevurah and Chesed. By this Faith we can also calm the storm! This is the real effective solution to Climate Change -- the Faith of Christ in us!
ONLY JESUS CHRIST -- THE MESSIAH, HAS THE POWER TO CALM AND SOLVE CLIMATE CHANGE DISASTERS!
- Suddenly, a violent storm arose on the sea, so that the boat was being swamped by the waves. But He was sleeping. So the disciples came and woke Him up, saying, "Lord, save us! We're going to die!" (Mat 8:24-25)
- But He said to them, "Why are you fearful, you of little faith?" Then He got up and rebuked the winds and the sea. And there was a great calm. The men were amazed and asked, "What kind of man is this?-- EVEN THE WINDS AND THE SEA OBEY HIM!" (Mat 8:26-27)
THE CASE OF PETER WALKING ON WATER
- But the boat was already over a mile from land, battered by the waves, because the wind was against them. Around three in the morning, He came toward them walking on the sea. (Mat 14:25)
- When the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were terrified. "It's a ghost!" they said, and cried out in fear. Immediately Jesus spoke to them. "Have courage! It is I. Don't be afraid." (Mat 14:26-27)
- "Lord, if it's You," Peter answered Him, "command me to come to You on the water." "Come!" He said. And climbing out of the boat, Peter started walking on the water and came toward Jesus. But when he saw the strength of the wind, he was afraid. And beginning to sink he cried out, "Lord, save me!" (Mat 14:28-30)
- Immediately Jesus reached out His hand, caught hold of him, and said to him, "You of little faith, why did you doubt?" When they got into the boat, the wind ceased. (Mat 14:31-32)
WILL YOU BELIEVE THE WORDS OF CHRIST?
- Therefore, whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on a rock. (Mat 7:24 MKJV)
- And the rain came down, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house. And it did not fall, for it was founded on a rock. (Mat 7:25 MKJV)
ARE YOU READY TO RETURN TO THE GARDEN OF EDEN?
Man is now living in the "heels" of the Messiah. The 6,000 years of hard labor (coupled with the ever-changing climate), given to man is about over. He is about to enter the Sabbatical Millennium, which means that man is in the age of entering once again the Garden of Eden environment!
Man's re-entry to the Garden of Eden was enabled by the death sacrifice of Christ, and Christ's resurrection from the dead enables man to eat from the Tree of Life. But before man can enter back to the Garden, he must be purified to that status of Adam before the sin. Climate Change is a major purification process in this human life that every human being must be exposed to and tried.
