Why did God create the earth?
This question is foundational to knowing why you are here. Everyone who makes an invention or creates a thing does it intentionally. He has a reason. God created the earth for a reason. If we can establish what that reason is then we are one step closer to finding out why we are here on earth.
I will keep it simple. But don’t let the simplicity deceive you. It is the truth. It won’t get any higher or deeper because of its complexity.
The bible clearly shows WHY God created the earth.
10 The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying,
11 Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created. Rev 4:11 (KJV)
God’s intention why He created the earth is to take pleasure in it. That is so very simply stated that we try to complicate it. For God’s pleasure all things (including you) are and were created. To put it in perspective I will restate it like this. The earth is a huge stage, a live stage, a live cinema that God designed to entertain himself. He takes pleasure in the creation of his hands.
Because all is from him, and in him, and all is by him, that to him would be praises and blessings to the eternity of eternities. Amen. Rom 11:36
Note that it says ALL not just Christians but All.
Everything that is created is created to worship and praise God – to give God pleasure. The concept of praise and worship has since become so complicated that we confuse it with singing and music. But trees don’t make music, yet they praise God. Fishes, lions, goats, buffaloes etc don’t sing, yet they are created to worship and praise God. Oceans, mountains, stars – nature – they too are silent or roar by their nature. In which ever form they give God glory and pleasure.
Simply by fulfilling their purpose on earth. The lion’s roar and killing of its prey is its worship. It is the script of the lion. The ants’ busy day and clockwork precision though done so silently is the praise and worship it offers. Because this is exactly what it was created to do. That is the script. You are not giving God glory except you are living your script.
Here is how Jesus defines giving God glory…
I have glorified You [down here] on the earth by completing the work that You gave Me to do. John 17:4 (AMP)
All life on earth is tied to a purpose. The purpose is the script. It is only in living the script that God (the Director) will take pleasure in your act. That is the only way to glorify God. That is the example Jesus gave to us.
