In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
-Earth is written as erets in Hebrew & it means dirt, dust, ground, land, soil & ore. It is the physical arena we live in which exists in space & time which God operates through us. This is different from the world which is defined as collective systems that govern the earth (Kosmos) e.g. government, insurance, banking etc.
-In the beginning God/ the Word pre-existed & created the earth & the three heavens. The earth has a population of over 7.3B people. There are plans to create a city in planet Mars where atleast 1M people will settle.
-Jesus came to restore the earth to the world of God as evidenced in Mat 6:10; Your kingdom come & Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. God advocates for His will to be imparted on earth as it in heaven so that we may live free from the temptations of the evil one who is the ruler of this world (John 12:31). Therefore, God loved the world & sent His son, the light of the world to save those that believe in Him. The earth we live in has overtime been influenced by the systems of the world which has continuously corrupt it. We have been called to holiness by seeking first His kingdom & His righteousness for we are in the world but not of the world. Gods will is continuously imparted in us by the help of the Holy Spirit, who teaches & reminds us all things, in the Word (John 14:26).
We thank You Father, for we have seen another beautiful day in good health. Restore the sick in hospital & at home by Your healing power. Renew our thoughts from the systems of the world that corruption may not be named among us. Help us during this elections that our votes may bring transformation change in our nation & those we interact with; through Your will powered leadership. Have mercy on us & direct us in decisions that will share Your kingdom agenda in our nation. You created all things, we praise You & worship You. Amen
Before any plant of the field was in the earth and before any herb of the field had grown. For the Lord God had not caused it to rain on the earth, and there was no man to till the ground;
-God created all things by word/ command & part of His creation actualized later after He rested, that is; animals, plants & man. By the same command/ law, all His creation abound e.g. Law of gravity affects all creation, Laws of a country govern it’s citizens & His divine laws provide human bearing. It is important to note that when laws are defiled they as well defile His created things. It had not rained on earth until the Lord created man from the dust of the ground. The human body is made from dust & cleaves to the earth’s produce by which plants, herbs of the field & animals were created (Gen 1:24). It was there after that God released showers of blessing upon the earth for a manager with dominion over plants & animals came to being. We are responsible for (have dominion over) plants & animals & God is responsible for us for He cares for us.
We thank You Father for taking care of us since we were born. We have come a long way by Your mercy & grace. We might not be where we wish to be, but we know You have a plan for our lives. Shower us with Your blessings & guide us in Your will. You created all things for us, guide us in Your wisdom so that we may maximize our potential in what we do. We praise You & worship You. Amen
O Lord, our Lord, How excellent is Your name in all the earth, Who have set Your glory above the heavens!
-The works of creation in the whole universe bespeak & proclaim that there is an infinite Being, the fountain of all being, power & perfection; the sovereign Ruler, powerful Protector & bountiful benefactor of creatures all over the earth. Since the creation of the world, His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, His eternal power & Godhead, that all creatures may glorify Him alone & gain wisdom (Rom 1:20-22). When we praise & thank God, we declare & acclaim His majesty upon all created things, by Whom is all love & confidence.
How excellent is Your name Oh Lord our King, the creator of heaven & earth. You are full of compassion & love, we bless You. You are worthy of all glory, honor, power & praise, hear our prayers & settle our hearts. We give You thanks. Amen
2 Peter 3:13
Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.
-In the end of time, heaven & earth will pass away when a great white throne will replace the old earth & old heaven with habitations of His righteousness (The New Jerusalem). After this; there will be no room for the evil one who corrupts the earth with deception, theft, destruction & all forms of evil. Apostle Paul reveals that we should set your mind on things above, not on things on earth (Col 3:2). Our hope is in Christ’s eternal inheritance for we know that after the heaven & the earth pass away; Him (the Word) & His descendants (Christians) will remain.
Lord our Father, full of righteousness & truth we trust in You. In Your holiness we find hope of an everlasting inheritance by which we are called in Christianity. Cleanse our thoughts, hearts & tongues that we may stay focused on things that are pleasing to You. May we always live in peace, love, joy & good health in Your grace. Amen
“Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.
-Jesus advocates for peace & love among ourselves with the help of the Holy Spirit, that His will may be done on earth as it is in heaven. In the same love & unity we agree as kingdom citizens.
-Earth is a physical sphere we live in that exists in space & time which God operates through us. In the beginning God/ the Word pre-existed & created the heavens & the earth. By His word, He command all creation into being & rested. Rain did not exist on earth until the Lord created man from the dust of the ground who cleaves to the earth’s produce. God then released showers of blessing upon the earth for man/ a manager with dominion over plants & animals came to being. It is our responsibility to be fruitful, multiply, fill & subdue the earth. God loved the world & sent His son to save all mankind & restore the earth to His kingdom & will. Overtime, the earth has been influenced by the systems of the world which have continuously corrupt it. This will eventually come to pass when a great white throne will replace the old earth & heaven with the New Jerusalem. As we continue to hold fast onto Christ our savior, we have hope for an eternal inheritance with Him. We praise, thank Him & declare His majesty upon all created things, by Whom we exist. The whole universe bespeak & proclaim that there is a sovereign Ruler, infinite Power & bountiful benefactor of creatures all over the earth. His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, that all creatures on earth & in heaven may glorify Him alone.
We bless You Abba Father for Your goodness & mercy upon us. Help us to live in peace & love among ourselves. May Your will be done in on earth as it is in heaven. Increase our faith so that we may have confidence, that You always hear our prayers. We thank You & worship You. Amen
