PRAYER: Lord, In Our Rough Experiences, Grant Us Patience And May We Be Sustained By Your Love

Restoring anything to its original or even better condition is what the Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary calls "the act of." If the current state is preferable than both the past and any potential future state, then there is no need to discuss restoration. The Supreme Creator is responsible for all that exists. Soon after He completed the task of creation. All that He had created, He saw, was good (Gen. 1 25).

Before Adam's transgression, God's creation existed in a state of perfect harmony (Gen 3). Mosquitoes, which originally used their proboscises to sip nectar from flowers, have adapted to feed on human blood and spread malaria. Millions of people, mostly women and children, fall victim to malaria each year, and the situation shows no signs of changing. Groaning, vanity, bondage, degradation, and anguish characterize TOW's state of creation. All of these can be traced back to the presence and effects of sin in the modern world.

The frequency with which natural and man-made calamities strike our globe is on the rise. Many natural and man-made disasters, including earthquakes, landslides, flooding, arson, mass shootings, terrorist attacks, wars, starvation, and disease epidemics, illustrate a world in enormous turmoil. Despite the fact that some of these natural catastrophes have only a tenuous connection to human activity, the rise in their frequency and intensity may be traced back to irresponsible human behavior. To rephrase, mankind has willfully disobeyed God by failing to properly care for His own creation (Gen 2:15). All of us are now experiencing the repercussions of our disobedience.

But when we consider the revelations God delivered to the Apostles, we see that the universe will be redeemed when God reveals the New Heaven and the New Earth (Rev. 21).
