Well that is all about the message of today's culture. Fear overpopulation, disparage large families.

He said it, and He changeth not. God is the same, yesterday, today and always. All His words are eternal truths.
But in these days we think we know better than God. It's like we think we are gods. God's will, to us, does not seem reasonable. We have it figured out better.
They say the entire worlds population can stand shoulder to shoulder in one Florida city. Or, everyone has their own acre in Alabama. I am not sure but something like that. But whenever I hear these stats it is always surprising, to think of all those people in one small little part of our country, and all those other vast counties in the world - just empty. Just like it is surprising to fly over pretty much any country and see so much vast emptiness. But we are told to fear overpopulation, that people are our worst enemy, so we puzzle since this doesn't seem to fit. But these guys have science degrees, so, they must be right.
In the New Era, that time on earth after these times, when the Lord's Prayer, that we have prayed for two millennium, is finally answered, when the will of God will be done on earth as it is in Heaven, and Jesus, Lord will reign as King in the hearts of mankind - in that coming day, everything, all of nature, will be different. The current prince of this world will be banished, or restrained and sin will no longer reign like we see today. It will be so much different that "The wolf shall dwell with the lamb: and the leopard shall lie down with the kid: the calf and the lion, and the sheep shall abide together, and a little child shall lead them." Yes.
And also we are told that in those centuries of the new time, the WHOLE EARTH will become populated. Like it never has before! And it will all be beautiful!
Yes, God has a plan for how things should be, and some of us will see that new day.
