Hebrews 1:3 He is the perfect imprint and very image of [God’s] nature, upholding and maintaining and guiding and propelling the universe by His mighty word of power.
Deep thought...Gods Word is propelling, upholding, maintaining, and guiding the universe. The earth is subject to Christ, and because of free will we have a choice to submit to His propelling power or fight it. Now I understand why destruction comes upon those who reject the Word. To try and fight a power that great (which at the core of it's power is love) will lead to a place of depravity.
