Chapter 34 is a warning, a fair warning of the destruction that will come of the wicked at the time of the Second Coming of the Lord. If this world was created to furnish the interests of man, then the Second Coming makes no sense. There is no context for it. However, if this world, its inhabitants, and its whole creation serves some greater purpose, then therein is the explanation for why a Second Coming is needed and necessary.
As I am reading these verses, this is the very thought that comes to my mind: Brent, you are part of something much bigger, much grander, and of eternal (or vastly long term significance).
