Will the summer and winter seasons switch just before the end of the world?


Thanks for clearing up many questions I had regarding the Flaws in the "Iraq - Interesting" E-Mail.  I received it yesterday and knew it was incorrect but didn't know where I could get some answers without extensive Bible study. I'll check your site often to read your articles.

I have a question: I'm told that in the Bible it predicts that in the end times the seasons will change and summer will become like winter and winter will become as summer. Do you know the chapter and verse regards this?


"And regard the patience of our Lord as salvation; just as also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given him, wrote to you, as also in all his letters, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which the untaught and unstable distort, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction. You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, be on your guard so that you are not carried away by the error of unprincipled men and fall from your own steadfastness" (II Peter 3:15-17).

I suspect that the covenant with Noah is being misused.

"The LORD smelled the soothing aroma; and the LORD said to Himself, "I will never again curse the ground on account of man, for the intent of man's heart is evil from his youth; and I will never again destroy every living thing, as I have done. While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease"" (Genesis 8:21-22).

What the Lord promised mankind is that the seasons would not be interrupted while the earth remains. It was not a promise that the earth would remain forever (II Peter 3:10-12), but only that the seasons would continue for the same duration as the earth. Therefore the idea that summers and winters would switch before the end is false because if it happened, then God would not have kept His promise. But an important aspect of God is that He cannot lie (Titus 1:2). That's why we are fully confident of Heaven because God promised it.
