Series: The Anxious Longing Of Creation
Speaker: Kobus Swart
Everything that God created in the beginning, was GOOD. In fact, when He looked at all that He had made, we read: “…and behold, it was VERY GOOD!” What we must not forget, however, is His commissioning to Adam and Eve, which was: “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth, subdue it and RULE…” The question that can be asked in our time, is whether Man has been faithful? Looking at our world today – with 7.7 billion people, we have to admit that yes, humanity has multiplied, but somehow, failed to subdue it and has not used all its vast resources in the service of God and man.
Presently, all of creation longs eagerly for freedom from its slavery to corruption, and to experience with us the wonderful freedom, yearning to see the unveiling of the sons of God! The time has come for the sons of God to be manifested.
Let us not lose hope! Several scriptures remind us to earnestly look for – and hasten – the unfolding of a new heavens and a new earth in which there will no longer be tears, mourning, crying, pain or death. Imagine that! Our creator God who sits on the throne, has promised, “Behold, I am making all things new!” May the sons of God arise and participate in Father’s Plan!
