The purpose and destiny of the earth

The earth was created to be the Kingdom of God. The cornerstone of that Kingdom is justice. Those who deny God’s law will have the earth itself against them. Christ, who as King of the new creation, gave His life in satisfaction of God’s justice, cannot be used to set aside the law of God.

To set aside the law of God is to deny the cross and to say that murder can now prosper, and the earth yield her strength readily and freely, to the enemies of God. It is tantamount to saying that the purpose of the King’s coming and atonement is to give freedom for sin.
