8-8-2017 The Abiding Earth

“One generation passes away, and another generation comes; But the earth abides forever. The sun also rises, and the sun goes down, And hastens to the place where it arose” (Ecclesiastes 1:4-5 NKJV). Wise Solomon is reminding us that, no matter how tough or powerful some country may appear, after hurling generations of people at it, “the earth abides forever.” No one on the face of God’s earth has ever changed its course, or ever will! There is no “god” or idol who has this kind of control. The God of the Bible’s “faithfulness endures to all generations; You established the earth, and it abides” (Psalm 119:90 NKJV). No human, or regime, can predict, or bring about, the earth’s destruction. The Word of the Lord destroyed the earth by water, and that same Word will destroy the earth by fire (2 Peter 3:5-7).
