What Happened to the Ice Age Critters?

What Happened

What happened to the Ice Age critters? Some died of natural causes such as environmental changes, and some were hunted into extinction.

Not all animals from the Ice Age era are extinct, such as the Caribou, Musk Ox, Artic Fox, and Snowshoe Hare.

Wasn’t it exciting discovering some of the cool Ice Age critters that God created? I have a great idea! Let’s go in by the fireplace and get another mug of hot chocolate to thaw ourselves out after all of that cold, snow, and ice.


Dear Ice Age Explorers,

The Ice Age was caused by the Flood of Noah’s Day. The worldwide Flood was God’s judgment for sin in the world. God hates sin today as much as He did back then. The Bible says all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). The Bible says that if you tell even one lie or steal something, even if it’s small, you’re a sinner. It also says that if you’re disrespectful to your parents or think bad thoughts, then you’re a sinner. The price for sin is death and separation from God. But God loves us enough that He sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins so that we can be forgiven (John 3:16). Jesus rose from the dead because He is God, and He is stronger than death. Right now in heaven He is preparing a place for His children that is better than anything we can imagine.

Becoming a child of God is more important than anything else you could ever do. All God asks is that we put our faith and trust in Jesus, repent of our sins, ask Him to forgive us, and make Him leader in our lives (Romans 10:9–10). Have you ever done this? If you haven’t you can ask Him right now, but you must be sincere.

Romans 10:13 says, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

1 John 1:9 says, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

But wait! Becoming a child of God is not the end of the journey but the beginning! You need to make it a habit to pray (talking with God) and find a Bible (God’s letter to us) to read, and try to find other Christians to spend time with. All these things will help you grow to be more like Jesus.

God bless you!
