“The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it; for he founded it on the seas and established it on the waters.”(Psalms 24:1-2) This is mere poetry to modern man, but it speaks truth in our inner being. We are bombarded with facts, opinions, observations, circumstances and judgments from every angle, but we are left to receive or reject each one. Many today have learned to consider the source as a filter for truth, as truth is what we really want and need, though itching ears simply want affirmation. The truth can hurt and wound our ego, it can shine bright light into dark places where our secrets are hidden, and it can set us free from the chains that hold us captive.
God’s word is perfect, “The law of the Lord is perfect, refreshing the soul. The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple. The precepts of the Lord are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are radiant, giving light to the eyes. The fear of the Lord is pure, enduring forever. The decrees of the Lord are firm, and all of them are righteous.” (Psalms 19:7-9) The dry land is founded on the seas being only 29% among 71% of water and water is everywhere and in everything, plants, animals, air ground and people. We are 70% water, even our bones contain 31% water. It seems to support a conclusion that water establishes everything. Yet, it seems to be the rarest substance in the universe and the sustenance of life.
Given the grand, even perfect, design of Creation is it any wonder the Psalmist attributes ownership to the Lord? Consider the magnitude of the earths atmosphere and the scope of the water cycle against those who suggest we can cool the earth by reducing carbon emissions. As of 2018, CO 2 constitutes about 0.041% by volume of the atmosphere, (equal to 410 ppm) which corresponds to approximately 3210 gigatonnes of CO 2, containing approximately 875 gigatonnes of carbon. A gigaton is 1,000,000,000, tonnes. There are fanatics who estimate minor increases over relatively short periods of time and draw unsupported catastrophic predictions for their political purposes. The scale of these numbers prove that man’s contribution to the atmosphere is minimal, while the ocean waters are the source of climate change happening throughout history and before the combustion engine existed. Besides, Russia and China are filling our carbon boat with 5 gallon buckets, while we are working with a teaspoons to reduce it. Secular humanist politics are the driver of this madness for their control and a plurality of socialists scientists can not offset Truths that are self-evident to the common man. About God the Psalmist observed, “To the faithful you show yourself faithful, to the blameless you show yourself blameless, to the pure you show yourself pure, but to the devious you show yourself shrewd.” (Psalms 18:25-26) The earth is the Lord’s and He has not abdicated His throne. Though wicked men scheme and contrive sundry fictions to promote themselves and secure their self-interest they are irrelevant in the light of God’s sovereign rule over the universe of time and space, God’s footstool.
