Genesis 8:22

"While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease."
Genesis 8:22

Does this mean that cold and heat *can* cease?  This is right after the flood, and God is telling himself that he will never destroy everything like that again… and he includes this at the end of that promise.  It seems weird to me that cold and heat could disappear. Seasons and days not so much… seems like you could change an orbit or stop the spin of the planet, and those things would change… but cold and heat seem… eternal.  Hmm… but so does time, which the scriptures say someday will be “time no longer” (Revelations 10:6), so what do I know? :)   Anyway, good promise.  Hopefully we can improve ourselves and our world, so that there is no need to start over from scratch.
