Words of Comfort: Planet Earth.

“Hate to break it to you but you live on planet Earth. Planet Earth is your home.” Mark Howard

It’s not common knowledge that this planet is our home. We are going to inherit this earth. Jesus said, "Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth." We get it all, but with a huge difference. There will be no more Genesis curse. Everything you see--the beautiful blue ocean, the amazing trees with their incredible fruits, the massive variety of amazing animals, etc., are in a “fallen” state, under the curse of God being devoured by death and corruption. When the curse comes off, there will be no more death and disease. Those who trust in Christ will get new bodies that have no pain, don’t age and never die. It’s then that the lion will lie down with the lamb. How amazing life will be when God's Kingdom comes to this earth, when His will, will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. If you think our hope is that we will be ghostly spooks, playing rusty harps on clouds forever, you are deceived. Forget your preconceptions, and instead read and believe the "exceeding great and precious promises" of the Bible. It’s God’s Word and it will come to pass.
