the reason for air, light, and rain.

Posted in Uncategorized by Stephen Stonestreet on January 31, 2009

He brings the clouds to punish men, or to water his earth and show his love.

-Job 37:13

 

One or the other.

God’s desire is to water the earth to show His love to men. 

He wants to touch us through the rain droplets falling from the sky.

But when we pollute our lives with worldliness, God’s clouds are saddened and angered, and in His love does not rain down his love.

Instead, He builds up dark, depressive, oppressive clouds, to punish us for our sins.

for our lusts.

for our godlessness.

for our idols that we keep instead of Him.

If only we would turn back to the Lord, He would be more than willing to rain down his love to the earth. 

 

 

 

Maybe the reason we have air is because God wanted to breathe on us,

and maybe the reason we have light is because God wanted to be in us,

Maybe the reason God created rain was the show his love to us,

Maybe this is the reason for such a beautiful creation.

    thanks for the comment. you might want to take a look at this article. It deals with being good stewards of the earth

    http://www.religion-online.org/showarticle.asp?title=1180.

    I took the genesis verse to be fruitful and multiply to heart when I was younger. But when I took courses in college, I realized that being fruitful and multiplying is destroying the earth. God has asked us to be stewards of this earth, so that we can share it to future generations, we should take care of it, and make responsible decisions.

    You obviously have great faith in the Lord. So I think God gave us a great gift of this planet, so to pass this great gift to our children, we need to take care of it. Remember, God created science, understanding science is just understanding what God has created. Nothing wrong with that.
