Beautiful universe is but a shadow of original created state
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Elohiym, in the beginning, created all, including the laws by which all things operate.
As the Creator of the laws by which all things operate, Elohiym is also the Enforcer who causes all things to operate in accordance with His laws.
In the beginning, before man with his God-given free will chose to violate God’s Word, God’s law, this universe was perfect. Please, do not blame the Creator for what His creation did to His perfect universe.
In the many pains of our existence, it is quite difficult to imagine this universe as perfect. From conception we experience good and evil. How can we understand the perfection that Elohiym created this universe in as its normal and intended condition? A condition it will one day be returned to.
The world is so beautiful. The majestic mountains, the power of the seas, the plains, even the deserts and tundra are places of wonderment and awe. Still, the most beautiful places on this planet are but a mere dark shadow of how Elohiym created it in the beginning.
We must learn to understand that the most beautiful sights on this planet, and of the immense cosmos, as beautiful as they appear to us mortal, sin-ruled human beings, are not truly beautiful compared to their original created state.
We must strive to be ever conscious of this to even begin to understand our history, our creation. Only then can we truly understand the depravity to which we have fallen, and the awesome sacrifice of our Creator.
