In my last post, I wrote about God (Father, Son and Spirit) creating everything in Genesis Chapter One. He created everything and declared it to be good, including mankind. Then mankind sinned and messed up God's perfect plan.
Cone flower and Milkweed feed the butterflies who need it to survive, especially the Monarchs, who undertake a migration route from Canada to Mexico, the original generation setting out never to see their destination.
We admire the Cone flower and butterflies for their aesthetic beauty. God also had that in mind. I have been asked pointedly, in ALL CAPS, why God allows bad things like poisonous plants to kill innocent children who stray from their parents and eat them.
The reality, which is very unpopular (just about anything having to do with God and His truths are in America today), is that nobody is good without Jesus. Adam and Eve brought sin into the world via their free will. That included, among other things, poison, greed, lust and death.
They had to leave their lovely garden in Eden where God supplied their every need.
Mankind causes pollution and over industrialization. We kill. We steal and we reject God.
God, Who is Omnipotent, foreknew our propensity to sin, so He sent His Son, Jesus, to die a painful and humiliating death in our place-and rise again.
Revelation tells us that a new time will come. God will gut this earth and do a major renovation that will rival anything on HGTV.
His saints (all those who believe in Jesus) will be permanent citizens of this new and wonderful place called "The New Jerusalem". Sin won't exist anymore.
I am sure there will be a garden even more lovely than the first one, before mankind ruined it.
Let us praise God for His Son, Jesus, and all the good He has created and is creating. Let us praise God for making us acceptable by Jesus' sacrifice at Cavalry.
