Romans 8:22-25 Longsuffering
22 For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now. 23 And not only that but also we ourselves, having the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting eagerly for our adoption as sons and daughters, the redemption of our body. 24 For in hope we have been saved, but hope that is seen is not hope; for who hopes for what he already sees? 25 But if we hope for what we do not see, through perseverance we wait eagerly for it.
When sin entered the world, the good that God say was now corrupt and disturbance was now a part of life. The warm pleasant Garden of Eden now had flowers like roses that petaled but painful thorns. Adam and Eve experience pleasant weather and tame friendly animals, with the entrance of sin, very horrible heat, and bone-chilling cold begin, the vicious animals now existed that are not called man-eaters. The Lord never wanted the world He created this way nor was it made to experience. When sin entered the world, the human body began to go older and weak, aging is sins way of saying you slowly dying. The world, creation has aches and pains also when an earthquake happens it’s saying this sin is hurting me. When a tornado happens, it like Lord I can talk this pressure of sin. When a hurricane or typhoon happens, it said, oh God can’t you come soon. Mudslides, volcanos eruption, tsunamis, and famines happen, cause the world is groaning I with pain. Not only natural disasters aren’t the only thing, creation somehow produces sickness, leprosy, smallpox, Aids, the cold, the flu, polio, and COVID-19. Creation is in desperation asking God, please come and make all things new again. Politicians wanna blame global warming, scientist who are paid by politicians, say yes we believe in climate change. The weather is part of creation, so it acted strangely from time to time, for example, the Sahara Desert of Africa is the hottest place on earth with temperatures high as 40 °C (104 °F) but on rare occasions, the desert will cover in snow. For us Christian, we can’t wait for the Lord to return, the planet earth all of the creations want the pains to go away also. Like a mother who has been pregnant a long time, she can’t wait for the child to leave her womb when the Son of Man appears, He will say, your time of suffering has ended, be made whole again. Are you waiting as well, all of creation and children of God say, please come soon, Lord we are ready to make new? God bless you all, the Lord of creation loves you and so do I, Samuel J H.
Isaiah 65:16 Because the one who is blessed on the earth Will ]be blessed by the God of truth; And the one who swears an oath on the earth Will swear by the God of truth; Because the former troubles are forgotten, And because they are hidden from My sight! 17 “For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth, And the former things will not be remembered or come to mind.
