I am an old tree. I have seen much human activity. My ancestors where in the garden when Adam and Eve disobeyed God. The actions of these two humans affected all life on earth. How do you think we felt when God did this action to the earth because of them?
Then to Adam He said, “Cursed is the ground for your sake!”
Genesis 3:17 – NKJV.
Do you know how hard it is to grow and be nourished in cursed soil. How hard it has been for the animal kingdom to perpetuate itself? All because of human sin, we your fellow inhabitants on earth are hurting! Don’t you hear us?
“For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now.”
Romans 8:22 NKJV
It isn’t amusing to us, you do not hear our groaning! The labor of your curse on us is worse than the birth pangs on your women at the time of their delivery.
Yet, we trees and fellow inhabitants on this earth are not lost without any hope. We know, as the curse came through a man, the deliverance from the curse will also come through a man.
“For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.”
Romans 8:19-21 NKJV
Yes, we have hope in Him, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who we trees held up on the hardwood of the cross. On that cross He brought salvation to man and deliverance to us from the bondage of your corruption! We can’t wait for the glorious liberty promised to us through your decision to accept God’s salvation and once again becoming a child of God!
The greatest environmental program humans can do is accepting the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. We the trees speak for all creation, accept Christ today, and get rid of your wicked curse on us. Please don’t delay.
