You don’t have to be a Jew, a Christian, or even have a Bible in your possession to discover some truths. This is an old proverb from the Cree, one of a number of Native American Civilizations:
“Only when the last tree has died and the last river been poisoned and the last fish been caught will we realize we cannot eat money.”
If you have been following this ministry, and especially if you have read through the blogs on creation and healthy living, you will know that God’s Word places an obligation on us to maintain the balance of creation and provides for us the details on how we are to do that. Get plugged in and be part of this movement to bring the world back to God, both naturally and spiritually.

Really ….ancients knew …about $$$……….
Tom Steele [09/27/2015 9:29 PM]
Well, let’s see, money existed in Jesus’ day over 2,000 years ago and Europeans settled in the Americas a few hundred years ago. I would say it’s possible that Native Americans knew about money at some point a long time ago, so it would depend on the interpretation of the term ‘ancient’. How old does something have to be? Many times an antique is only 40 or 50 years old, but one might consider that ‘ancient’.

Hear you ..but with the existing conservation efforts have been +/- seems can’t get all sides ..on side as long as some feel free to take more than what’s legal or right ..and as long as politicians are left to manage the issue???
But I believe civilized vfolls won’t let it come to a dire statement
Last fish ..last river Last duck
last deer last last last etc etc

I have blogged recently, population statistics show that in about another 500 years or so the world’s human population would provide only about a one meter square of available land for every human on earth. We wouldn’t live to see that, of course, but that day may come… of course, I believe, based on research provided in the same blogs, that we will see the return of the Lord before that time ever comes.

500 years ago about 500 people prophesied and wrote blog articles that we will not be here in 500 years, and yet here we are…

And about500000 folks from sandunes floating across oceans …to use up space somewhere else in the world
Tom Steele [09/28/2015 8:18 AM]
They had blogs (short for ‘web log’) 500 years ago? But really, yes, people have prophesied stuff that has not come true, but the THEORY I referenced is based on population statistics and growth trends of human beings. People can make stuff up and lie about things, but numbers don’t lie. Short of a major event altering these trends in a major way, it is very possible for humans to overpopulate the Earth in the very near future. (Side Note: a good example of a major event would be the return of Jesus and the establishment of His Kingdom. Since there seems to be so few actual true Believers in the world compared to those who reject God, we likely would not overpopulate the Earth during the Millennial Reign, assuming that people are even capable of bearing children during that time, I know some people believe that we will be living in a glorified state when that happens.)

Profesy? ?1/3 of world population is lost in great plaugue /war …then consider valley of jehausifat final big battle…losing lot of folks
Tom Steele [09/28/2015 8:33 AM]
Yep, that’s all in their, isn’t it! When you look at the numbers, and consider that the size of armies mentioned in the Bible for these end time events weren’t even humanly possible until populations grew to these grand numbers, we are truly living in the fulfillment of Bible prophecy. I don’t believe we will ever see the estimated overgrowth of human population come to pass, nor do I believe that we would ever see the ‘last tree’ or catch the ‘last fish’ mentioned in the above Cree proverb, Jesus will certainly return and establish His Kingdom on the Earth before any of that can actually happen. And it is true, a lot of people will be consumed in the process, but they all have a chance to come to Christ before then.

Amazing how silent pulpits are on subject…apparently sheep .. (as in Over Shepherd ..leader of Sheep),,….metafore ……..Sheep already know details on the times to come
