This world is undesirable

I like this world. It is quite beautiful and God deemed it worthy of redeeming as a new creation, just as he has us.
Yes, there is so much to learn about God from this world. God's creation is quite beautiful, even the Psalmist says so. The black and white authoritative simplistic posts that show up here end up missing a lot of the depth and spirituality that's out there. At least once a month I discover something new and amazing about nature and glorify God for his wisdom and creativity. Did you know that cat whiskers are in rows? It's not just random. And instincts are incredible, how do birds instinctively recognize cats as a deadly enemy? Is it in DNA somewhere? All we know about DNA is that it makes protein (and RNA), and protein forms the nanomachines (enzymes) that are used to make everything else like vitamins, amino acids, fats, etc. Instincts? No one has the slightest clue how they are fixed in a species, but God did it. I was just reading about the electron transport chain in mitochondria. That's crazy complicated machinery for moving individual electrons around and extracting small chunks of energy from them step by step. Without this we wouldn't be alive!
The most beautiful things any of us ever see are God's direct creations: a starry night, a lovely sunset, alstromeria flowers, etc. etc. Stunning beauty can break us out of our humdrum life and make us stop and think about things that we've never thought of. Like why beauty even exists. It all leads back to God, the source of beauty. If we didn't see beauty in this world ever, the we wouldn't know that God is beautiful.
For Christians, this world is the only hell we will experience. For the lost, this world is the only heaven they will experience.
even the lost cant enjoy their piece of heaven because there's a need for inner peace. i'm sure we have been there too.. prayer for them.
> And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.
- Luke 17:26-30
> But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless. - II Peter 3:10-14
Unless your “of the world” then it’s all you desire.
