The earth has various locations renowned for their natural beauty.
This is due to the care which God lavished upon His creation.
“And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day. And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.”
At various points during God’s creation of earth and the things of the earth, God stopped, surveyed what He had already done and declared, “…it was good.”
The ONLY variance of this declaration occurred in Genesis 1:31, where God saw everything He had made and declared it to be “VERY good.”
“And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good.”
This is pointed out so that the reader may take a few odd moments or so (if he chooses) and consider that EVEN THOUGH THAT DURING MUCH OF THE END TIMES, THE EARTH SERVES AS A BATTLEFIELD–the earth still provides all who can see a glimpse of its natural beauty created by God so long ago.
One of the many benefits to living in the creation of an all-powerful, all-knowing, all-seeing God is the natural beauty of that creation. Even when that creation is the scene of an end times battle between the forces of GOOD and the forces of EVIL: man may enjoy the natural beauty of God’s creation which surrounds him.
This natural beauty is one of the benefits to be enjoyed within the grace of an all-powerful God.
DOES the reader ever admire the natural beauty of the land?
DOES the reader ever wonder about the CREATOR of that land and that beauty?
It is not YET too late–although time is surely running out: there is still a LITTLE time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.
DOES the reader believe he is saved?
DOES the reader believe he is NOT saved?
THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
—1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
