For a fire is kindled in My anger, And shall burn to the lowest hell; It shall consume the earth with her increase, And set on fire the foundations of the mountains.(Deuteronomy 32:22) NKJV
There’s a rather large elephant in the room these days. Could climate change, or global warming, have anything to do with the fact that the Bible tells us that hell is increasing in size and will consume the Earth?
Now that you mention it, this is a predictive testable hypothesis based on ocean water warming data. It’s hypothesis 5.
- IF hell is at the center of the Earth,
- AND it’s expanding,
- THEN we would expect to be able to detect this in seismological data,
- AND we should anticipate that heat radiating from the interior of the Earth would have an effect on ocean water temperatures.
If hell were expanding then we should anticipate that the oceans would be warming from the bottom up.
Data shows that ocean water is warming at the bottom. As it warms it decreases in density and rises, being displaced by colder water from melting polar ice. This is heating the atmosphere and driving ocean water circulation.
