Never again will I curse the ground because of humans, even though every inclination of the human heart is evil from childhood. And never again will I destroy all living creatures, as I have done. As long as the earth endures, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night will never cease.” Gen 8:21b-22  "He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End." Rev 21:6a
