Earth Day

Today is Earth Day. I don’t plan to bake a cake or send a congratulations card to Planet Earth, but I am thankful for the beauty and bounty of the good land God has given to us. I also realize we live in a fallen world and nature lies under a curse brought on by sin. Observing nature’s beauty and partaking of its enormous bounty, I wonder what Earth would be like if it were not for the curse imposed on it.

Someday I will see firsthand what Earth will be like when Jesus rules the planet. He will restore it to Edenic conditions. The desert will blossom like a rose. Daylight will extend long into the evening. Agricultural productivity will abound. Even the Dead Sea will become a fisherman’s paradise. Animals will abandon their carnivorous savagery. Wars and crime will cease. Peace will prevail. Prosperity will rest in everyone’s grasp. Righteousness will flourish. Health and longevity will exist. Children will play safely in the streets. Submission to the Lord and worship of the Him will be universal. Joy will flow freely.

For a more detailed look at conditions on Planet Earth when Jesus rules as King of kings and Lord of lords, read the following Scriptures and be careful to worship the Creator and not the creation: Isaiah 2:4; 11:1-10; 33:17, 22; 35:5-7; 42:7; 51:11; 60:18; 65:21-25; Ezekiel 47:7-10; Joel 2:23-26; Micah 4:4; Zechariah 6:12, 13; 8:5; 14:7, 16-20; Romans 8:19-22; Revelation 11:15; 20:15; 22:2
