On the metropolitan streets of this world we will see people with masks on their faces or linen over their mouths. When passing alongside the forest of Europe and America the “lungs” of the nearby cities, one sees a sad picture of dried up leaves yellowed even before they could turn green finished of a gentle heavenly rain we are showered with “acid” and poison rain. Nearly every day we hear of various natural disaster. Everywhere there is news of human misfortunes and catastrophes. Everything has turned against man and declared war on him.
“In the beginning God created t he heavens and the earth” and everything that God made, behold, “it was very good”. “So God created man in His own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created He them. And God blessed them, and God unto them, be fruitful and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” The way things stand, it looks like the creation has rebelled against his master and refused him his love and devotion.
In error, man has drown a veil over his eyes and mind, and hastened to forget that the Lord gave the earth to the children of man to serve their needs, but all the earth still is the Lord’s and all its fullness, “the world and those who dwell therein“, “the earth He has given the children of man.“
This tragic misunderstanding on the part of man has lasted right to the present day. Once man was rash and unreasonable; now he is openly evil. Everyone is disturbing to him, and most of all God. Man is determined to completely drive the Lord God away from the earth so that he may finally be its master. Conferences are gathering and big money is being invested in the development of birth control, so that they would not multiply and replenish the earth. To them it is always small and cramped. Their hunger is insatiable; they never had enough bread to share with others. They don’t see that “the earth is full of the goodness of the Lord. “
The only way the war waged by God’s creation against man could end and man could find his way out of the blind alley he wandered into, is through mans obedience and his submissiveness before God. He must stop his sinful arrogance and with humility kneel before God and acknowledge Him as Lord of His entire creation. Only in this way can God grant man to be at peace with nature and God, and restore to him anew nature, in her original beauty.
