For some people, they cannot come to grips with the fact that this earth will pass away. Like the 2 Peter 3:3-4 says, they scoff that the world has continued since the beginning and thus nothing will change. Well, I am here to say that there shall be a new heaven and new earth, whether you think it’s delaying or not.
Come to consider it, “that there shall be a new heaven that will cover the skies?” Applying logic, if there will be a new heaven then there must be a new earth too to complement each other (cp. Matthew 9:17). The new heaven and earth is a heaven on earth i.e. heaven’s geo-location can be traced on earth (rf. Revelation 21:24-26).
What will the new heaven and earth be like? It is like a bride adorned for the husband of all the saints, Jesus Christ. Not everybody will be his bride but those who believe in him and have washed themselves in his blood. The new heaven and earth is like a city, the city of God, that is, New Jerusalem, which will come down from God (Revelation 21:1-2).
This new heaven and earth is a place Jesus is preparing for us, and we are in it. God is or will be the wonder of it, and not some stars that we’ll be gazing at. There wouldn’t be seas so to explore other lands but one river that runs through all the land. There wouldn’t be night to slumber and fall but daytime all the time, because of God’s light which shines in it always.
You might be asking, “what’s the essence of this note?” I’m sure when you watched Avatar, you were wondering what would happen to the crippled man whose soul was to be translated by the tree? Well that’s the same thing that will happen to us; we will be translated into a city or skies so beautiful, it will be the wonder of the world. This is what I want you to know, so you will live your life following the lead of Jesus Christ. God bless you.
