What do the Wildfires mean? Part I

January 16th, 2020, Promulgated by Diane Harris

God’s Promise

In Genesis, after the flood, God told Noah that never again would He destroy the world with water. In Chapter 9:11 (yes, think 9-1-1) the text begins:

“I establish My covenant with you, that never again shall all flesh be cut off by the waters of a flood, and never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth.” And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant which I make between Me and you and every living creature that is with you, for all future generations: I set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between Me and the earth. When I bring clouds over the earth and the bow is seen in the clouds, I will remember My covenant which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh. When the bow is in the clouds, I will look upon it and remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth. God said to Noah, ‘This is the sign of the covenant which I have established between Me and all flesh that is upon the earth.’”

Sometimes these words are misunderstood to mean ‘no more floods’ but that is not what God said. He promised not to destroy the entire earth with a flood, but there certainly continue to be floods, as well as other natural disasters. And the symbol of God’s promise, the rainbow, the covenant made on His own initiative, has certainly been profaned by its use to promote what God’s Word calls sin. The early days of rainbow politics had the ‘bow’ upside down to the way it naturally occurs, i.e. red is always on top of a natural rainbow. Red on the bottom is ‘unnatural.’ As a further distortion, the rainbow is universally recognized even in high school physics class as having seven visible colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. The political rainbow only has six, mirroring the six days of creation, without God’s Seventh Day role or recognition. What color is missing? Probably the violet, which leads into ultraviolet, i.e. beyond man’s ability to perceive. In movements directed by the evil one, he cannot help but reveal his presence through lies and distortions.

How will the earth be destroyed?

So we know that the destruction of the world will not be through water. How will the world be destroyed? There are a multiplicity of possibilities, and fire indeed has its place in the scenario, and even previews the Fires of Ghenna, perhaps to encourage repentance before the end. However, this in no way relates to the alleged “climate change.” God’s own statement against climate change comes when He says to Noah (Genesis 8:22): “While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night , shall not cease.” 

Revelation 8:7 gives a hint about the role of fire in the destruction of the earth:

The first angel blew his trumpet, and there followed hail and fire,  mixed with blood, which fell on the earth; and a third of the earth was burnt up, and a third of the trees were burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.”

These words from Revelation show the beginning of the final days, and the potential of fire to be part of the tribulation and judgment. Let’s acknowledge that the reporting about the wildfires may be exaggerated, but even half accurate it is still an awesome and terrifying natural disaster, affecting not only mankind but, as Genesis says, “every living creature” as well. On January 3, 2020, Prof. Chris Dickinson, said to be an expert on Australian biodiversity at the University of Sydney, estimated 480 million animals had been killed by the bush fires.  Recently he raised that estimate to one billion. Now we examine a map of Australia, where a significant part of the earth and grasslands are affected. 

Map published of Australian Fires

















Although there are accusations of deliberate effort to set the fires, one still wonders why so many, and why now? There are some who attribute the fires as punishment for Australia’s recent decriminalization of abortion.            See:   As of October 2019, all states and territories except South Australia have fully decriminalized abortion, starting with Western Australia in 1998. There can be no doubt that such legal maneuvers will put many souls at risk.

Disclaimer Regarding Visionaries:

Below are a few excerpts from “visionaries” regarding matters in Australia. I neither endorse nor reject the possibility that truly some souls are favored by God with disclosures of His Will and Intent beyond what most of us receive. But that opinion doesn’t matter. Every single thing we need for our salvation has already been provided to us through Christ’s Redeeming Sacrifice, through His One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, through the Deposit of Faith including Sacred Scripture and Tradition, and through the Sacraments and priestly guidance, regardless of the sinfulness of hierarchy, other humans, and ourselves.

So, I conclude, that there is no need to condemn claims of visionaries’ insights, unless they conflict with what God has already given us as His Truth, and no reason to pursue guidance beyond what has been already provided to us. If we needed more, He would have given us more. So, in that spirit, I will isolate a few statements of several different visionaries, without identifying the individual, who usually has a pseudonym anyway, not to add or subtract from their credibility but to illustrate what may well influence the perceptions of other.

Usually the words are not meant to be the visionaries’ own words, but reported as if they come from God:

  • “As you see in your country, dear son, Australia is being chastised through heat and sorrows. When will the people open their hearts to truth? With the suffering that has been given to the Australian people, how many have thanked God for their protection and Blessing? Very few, dear children and this is only the beginning – for the fires will continue and the dryness will continue, until our children raise their voices to My Throne. Pray, dear children.”  
  • “Pray, sweet children, because Australia will be chastised, because of the murderous act that has fallen on the ‘Innocent Ones’ in Abortions.”
  • “More fires are coming to warn people of Australia to change the Law that destroys children that are and will be aborted.”
  • “The fires, dear children, are only the beginning of a great chastisement that will come to Australia and to the rest of the world. I tell you most solemnly, that this is only the beginning of the trials of this country, for soon the enemy will let loose of souls that will harm this country in many ways. Terrorism will strike very soon in the cities.”
  • “Pray, dear children of Australia! The fires are only the beginning, because the enemy will use this matter to attack the people. Watch the bridge and major buildings and watch your water, because there is a plan to sabotage the water supply. Make yourselves ready and pray.”

What about Cardinal Pell?

Not only do the abortion law changes show a weakening in the ability of the Church to influence through her Teaching, but the Cardinal Pell prosecution and persecution, and the Vatican’s stepping away from direct involvement, also are worth considering as influencers. Where was the Church’s involvement in making the word of God clear during such a time of strife? A Prince of the Church has been convicted on the word of one secret person (sound familiar?) who did not testify. The evidence of defense, proving the allegations impossible, was suppressed. Cardinal Pell is being prevented from saying Mass even alone in his solitary cell; it is part of the torture he endures. Although he is being given ‘one more chance’ to defend himself, unless he is fully and openly permitted to do so, it is hard to envision acquittal because Australia now has a vested interest in proving they are “right.” His imprisonment has led inevitably to more evil overtaking the Church and the country, through his voice missing from the 2019 Abortion Law debate. The decision to allow the appeal (not credible as a real opportunity) came out Nov 11 -13 when a plethora of apparently spontaneous new fires was reported.  

Let’s consider the words of Isaiah relating to the sign of fires in the grasslands, and do pause for a moment on the poetry of his prophecy, for is not “their blossom” going up “like dust” the very destruction of their own offspring?

“Therefore, as the tongue of fire devours the stubble, and as dry grass sinks down in the flame, so their root will be as rottenness, and their blossom go up like dust; for they have rejected the law of the LORD of hosts, and have despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.”  Isaiah 5:24


Coming in Part II:  the indigenous peoples of Brazil and Australia, and their “fire-stick farming,” and the idolatry in the Vatican Amazon Synod as offense to the Almighty God.
