I love our planet and all the wonderful, marvelous creations that are in it. Walking is a treasured hobby of mine and I love walking down the road, soaking up the vast paddocks with cows and horses roaming. Staring at the majestic beauty of the mountains in the distance, never being able to stare hard enough, in order to fully absorb its beauty. Everything is a reflection of the glory and wonders of Jesus.
“For the word of the LORD is right,
And all His work is done in truth.
He loves righteousness and justice;
The earth is full of the goodness of the LORD.”
– Psalm 33:4-5
However, this earth is broken, it is full of sin and evil because of the fall of humanity – Adam and Eve. And as their ancestors, we are now born into sin but thanks to Jesus Christ we have hope and we also have hope for another planet!
“Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned.”
– Romans 5:12
I know environmental awareness and protesting has been happening for a long time but recently I’ve been seeing a lot of it! I see the quote “there is no planet B” on every social media platform….But do I have news for you! There is a planet B!!! Its called a new heaven and a new earth and its coming after Jesus returns once again for the final day of judgement. Of course I’m not saying we should no longer care about the environment or no longer support people who look after it. What I am saying is, our planet is going to die and if we don’t surrender our lives to Jesus here on planet A, then we will die with it, ETERNALLY!
“Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea.” – Revelation 21:1
“I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying:
“Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man,
and He will dwell with them.
They will be His people,
and God Himself will be with them as their God.
He will wipe away every tear from their eyes,
and there will be no more death
or mourning or crying or pain,
for the former things have passed away.”
And the One seated on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” Then He said, “Write this down, for these words are faithful and true.” And He told me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give freely from the spring of the water of life. The one who is victorious will inherit all things, and I will be his God, and he will be My son.” – Revelation 21:1-7
Now I’m also not saying we should get saved merely for the sake of being a member of the next planet. Of course Jesus can work with anything when it comes to what leads you to Him but what I mean is, there is already a solution and an answer to our problem and that answer is JESUS! He answered us 2000 years ago when He lived among us, died for us, bore our sins, sicknesses and infirmities. He rose again so that when we die to ourselves for Him to live in us, we can rise with Him in victory (Rom. 6). And not only that, He ascended into heaven to the right hand of God to show us where the saints (saved, believers; disciples of Christ) are going to once when we die. We are called to live in God every day and fulfill His will for our lives.He also ascended for every person to receive Him in Spirit.
that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying: “ He Himself took our infirmities And bore our sicknesses.” – Matthew 8:17
“For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God, having been put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit;” – 1 Peter 3:18
The government may have the money and the power over finances and to put things into action but it’s not the answer that is going to sustain us for the long haul. Only Jesus can sustain us for the long haul.
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” – John 14:6
So my question to you is, where do you see our planet going? Does it align with scripture and everything Jesus, Daniel and many other prophets tell us in the Bible? Jesus is the answer and He is the only way to the Father’s heart.
The question isn’t what am I doing for the health of the planet today, the question is what choices and decisions am I making for my spiritual health today?
If you’re not a believer in Christ and you want to be, please find a christian friend and church to talk to them about it and help you on your journey with Christ. Also you can talk to Jesus, as scripture says “If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” – Romans 10:9. God has called us to fellowship with each other as believers for the edification and health of the saints. For the body of Christ, to continue preparing each other as the bride of Christ, which then prepares us as the body of Christ to be the complete bride of Christ. The Word of God is alive and it is detrimental to our walk and relationship with the Jesus. READ THE WORD DAILY!
“And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.” – Revelation 22:17
Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.” – Revelation 19:7
“Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty. But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.” – 2 Corinthians 3:16-18
“And it was He who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to equip the saints for works of ministry, to build up the body of Christ, until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God, as we mature to the full measure of the stature of Christ.
Then we will no longer be infants, tossed about by the waves and carried around by every wind of teaching and by the clever cunning of men in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into Christ Himself, who is the head. From Him the whole body, fitted and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love through the work of each individual part.” – Ephesians 4:11-16
God bless you all!
