Planet Earth Symbol

       The planet symbol for Earth reminds us of our place of origin. Although it is a place where evil can reside, because of the Fall, God has also given us good things here: companionship, love, joy, etc... and most important, He has provided a way for our safe return through Christ.

Scripture References for The Planet Earth Chrismon:
  • "This is the account of the heavens and the earth when they were created, when the LORD God made the earth and the heavens." Genesis 2:5 (NIV)
  • "He holds in his hands the depths of the earth and the mightiest mountains. The sea belongs to him, for he made it. His hands formed the dry land, too. Come, let us worship and bow down. Let us kneel before the LORD our maker, " Psalm 95:4-5 (NLT)
  • "The earth mourns and withers, the world fades and withers, the exalted of the people of the earth fade away. The earth is also polluted by its inhabitants, for they transgressed laws, violated statutes, broke the everlasting covenant. Therefore, a curse devours the earth, and those who live in it are held guilty. Therefore, the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men are left." Isaiah 24:4-6 (NASB)
  • "The nations were enraged, and Your wrath has come. The time has come to judge the dead, and to reward Your servants, the prophets and saints, and those who fear Your name, both small and great, and to destroy those who destroy the earth." Revelation 11:18 (BSB)
