Today has significance to many people. To those who are conscious of the mess our environment is in it is "Earth Day". To children all over the U. S. it's a day off from school. To those working in government jobs and in banks it's a day off from work. To those who worship God through the grace in His Son Yahowshua (Jesus) it is the day we remember he was crucified. Some call it "Good Friday". It probably didn't seem so good to the Lord at the time, but for the very reason that he came to rescue a world in trouble it was very good. He rescued all who would trust in him.
Those of us who believe the Holy Bible is the inspired word of God written on paper, know that the condition the world is in (environmentally speaking) is not a surprise. God put restrictions on how bad it could get and promised to even adjust or speed up time so all flesh wouldn't be destroyed! But He thought of everything and knew what we have today was coming.
I am all for being good stewards of the planet and the resources we have been given. God calls us to do just that. He will ask of us when we stand before Him what we have done with what He has given us. There will be an accounting done when this age is up. We all have waste in our lives. The Lord was so farsighted He even planned for decay (flies, buzzards, pigs and the like) and refuse (see dung gate in your bibles). He saw the end from the beginning!
We don't get off just because this planet is going to be purged with fire and remade, but that alone should bring us peace when we can't seem to get the ears of selfish and wasteful people.
God is the original recycler. He will remake heaven and earth. He takes the corruptible and puts on it incorruptibility! He has an awesome plan to reuse, renew and recycle everything! He reuses those who have been thrown away. He renews the minds of those who seek His will. He will ultimately recycle everything we see, smell, taste, feel or hear! The earth is truly the Lord's and the fullness thereof! Just ask Him.
Selah (chew on that in Hebrew)!
