Friend: What do you think is happening to the world now… with all the typhoons, heavy rains…. and all nature’s ‘beautiful but scary stuff’?
I am not really sure what is happening to the world now. I am just blessed and grateful that I am where I am right now. Safe and away from natural disasters 😭
I try not to think much about it, and just pray everyone is at a safe place while the earth changes its skin, transforms and renews itself. I read somewhere that the earth does this. It merely renews itself. It’s a good topic to look up.
It is true that irresponsible human beings are polluting, abusing and destroying the earth. And the earth has the power to heal itself, regardless of how we humans feel 😂 I mean, before anything happens, I believe the earth would have already sent signs of things to come, to prepare us, to prompt us to do something different, something better. It is not a thing that happens overnight–it is a constant sending of signs and warnings before anything huge and drastic happens, like what it is happening today.
The earth has no brain. It is an object, whereas human beings have a brain. The earth is merely functioning in its own creative design. So, the question is, are we not supposed to take care of the earth and all its creation? If we create imbalance, for sure the earth would respond as it should. Is there another way that the earth would respond? The earth would definitely respond if there is a change in its the original flow in its system.
God gave us this beautiful earth, in all its signs and wonders, as a gift. For us to govern it. For us to run it. It is in our power. And what are we doing? Who gave us right to complain that God lets bad things happen when it is our duty and responsible to take care of what is given to us? God, is a Man of His own words. He cannot go against itself and His own designs. He weeps when the earth has to renew itself drastically because of the imbalance in its atmosphere. Because if the earth doesn’t do that and dies, we humans are no more.
Regarding the end of the world, the Day and Hour is unknown: “But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father (Matthew 24:36)”.
So what current issues shall we look into and what practical steps shall we take to take care and keep the earth clean and healthy, so we get to enjoy its abundance and beauty in full?
