Repentance Or Calamity?
God created the heavens and the earth in perfection. The earth was rich in flora and faunas. It was splendid in beauty and marvelous in all its habitation.
The earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness, the world and those who dwell therein. For He has founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the waters. (Psalms 24:1-2)
For the word of the Lord is right, and all His work is done in truth. He loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of the goodness of the Lord. (Psalms 33:4-5)
However, as a result of sin, God cursed the earth thus causing various catastrophes to cleanse the earth.
Catastrophe number one
Adam and Eve disobeyed God which caused a cataclysmic event. The earth became desolate and void with thorns and thistles erupting all over it.
“For My people are foolish, they have not known Me. They are silly children, and they have no understanding. They are wise to do evil, but to do good they have no knowledge.”
I beheld the earth, and indeed it was without form, and void; and the heavens, they had no light. I beheld the mountains, and indeed they trembled, and all the hills moved back and forth. I beheld, and indeed there was no man, and all the birds of the heavens had fled.
I beheld, and indeed the fruitful land was a wilderness, and all its cities were broken down at the presence of the Lord, by His fierce anger. (Jeremiah 4:22-26)
Catastrophe number two
Adam and Eve repented, and God healed the land. Then the generation of Cain who was marked with sin cohabited with fallen angels and they contaminated the earth.

The wickedness of man was great upon the earth and God repented that He had made man (Genesis 6).
Will you keep to the old way which wicked men have trod, who were cut down before their time, whose foundations were swept away by a flood? (Job 22:15-16)
But God is merciful and He saved Noah who was perfect in his generation and his family in the Ark. Then God cleansed the earth and placed a rainbow in the sky as the sign of a covenant between God and mankind that He would not destroy the earth again with a flood (Genesis 8:11).
Catastrophe number three
The descendants of Ham, one of Noah’s sons rebelled against God by resurrecting the ancient diabolic knowledge of the fallen angels. They decided to build a tower or stargate that would transport them into heaven (Genesis 11).
They were united in their evil desire and was about to accomplish their mission when God decided to come down to earth and put a stop to it. The Lord confused their language and they were divided and spread across the face of the earth.

And children were born also to Shem, the father of all the children of Eber, the brother of Japheth the elder. The sons of Shem were Elam, Asshur, Arphaxad, Lud, and Aram. The sons of Aram were Uz, Hul, Gether, and Mash. Arphaxad begot Salah, and Salah begot Eber. To Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg, for in his days the earth was divided; and his brother’s name was Jokta. (Genesis 10:21-25)
These were the families of the sons of Noah, according to their generations, in their nations; and from these, the nations were divided on the earth after the flood. (Genesis 10:32)
