Plant life is critical for the Earth, providing a source of energy for other lifeforms. This was all part of God’s plan during the creation week.
Genesis 1:11-13 And God said, Let the earth bring forth grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw that it was good. 13 And the evening and the morning were the third day.
God is purposeful and organized in all He does. After creating the firmament, He makes the next thing necessary for His plan–dry land.
Genesis 1:9-10 And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. 10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.
The words “one place” do not necessarily mean that there was one body of water since “seas” later in the verse is plural. The idea is that the land and seas would be distinct from each other. Each would have its place in the world. Continue reading →
Luke 24:1-7 Now upon the first day of the week, very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them. 2 And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre. 3 And they entered in, and found not the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 And it came to pass, as they were much perplexed thereabout, behold, two men stood by them in shining garments: 5 And as they were afraid, and bowed down their faces to the earth, they said unto them, Why seek ye the living among the dead? 6 He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spake unto you when he was yet in Galilee, 7 Saying, The Son of man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again.
After Jesus died on the cross, paying the price for our sins, He rose again on the third day, just as He said He would. Hallelujah! He conquered death, hell, and the grave! He did what we couldn’t do for ourselves. He paid the price for our salvation and made a way for us to spend eternity with Him. All we need is to accept His gift of salvation (John 1:12; John 3:16; Romans 6:23; Romans 10:9, 13).
