this may be too random and unformed of a thought for a Saturday night, but we'll see i guess...
God never meant for there to be earthquakes & tsunamis. that's not the way He created the world to work.
Earthquakes & tsunamis are jacked up.
one day there will be a new earth & there will be no more earthquakes or tsunamis. The "kingdom" of God will reign and everything will be as it was meant to be.
here & now we see glimpses of that "kingdom", that new earth, all the time. we're moving in that direction. God is using us to fix broken things all the time.
is it even possible? dare i even think?
could we STOP earthquakes and tsunamis from every happening?
could we stop all the destruction they cause?
all the lives they steal?
i don't know, maybe i'm just WAY out of the loop and all the smart people have already been talking about this for years and they're onto something and by 2025 they'll have it figured out? maybe it was in TIME magazine or something. i just haven't heard about it.
but if no one is working on it then they really should be. i know it might sound crazy, but the world is not supposed to be this way. God doesn't want it to be this way. i just wonder if we could fix it?
it would be another glimpse of the new earth that will come. a glimpse into the future. when Jesus is King.
that would be way cool. i hope it happens in my life time.
no more earthquakes. no more tsunamis.
let's shut them down.
and with that, good night to a long week.
