A New Earth

Something to think about.

A New Earth

13 Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells. 2 Peter 3:13

 

I don’t think anyone disputes the earth will eventually cease to sustain life. There are differences of opinion on how the eventuality will occur but not on its occurrence.  The Bible says that God Himself will bring about the end of the world. It also says that He will create a new world and a new heaven. It will not be a rebirth it will not be something that comes out of the ashes of the old. It will be something entirely different because it will be a place of righteousness. Any and all forms of sin will not be present there even the remembrance of sin will not be known.   

Only righteousness will be allowed in this new heaven and new earth. Only those who by faith have been justified, sanctified and cleansed by the blood of Jesus will be allowed access. Since it is impossible to attain righteousness in any other way all who reject Christ not be there. Lets not complicated it. Let’s not get caught up in laws, rituals traditions and old habits. Jesus said, “I am the way the truth and the life.” Our eternal future is wrapped up in this one man. God himself removed every hindrance to salvation by offering His son as payment for our sin. So we may live forever with Him in the new heavens and earth.

About Ruben

I am the owner of a custom furniture shop in Orlando, Florida. I had a heart attack back in 2010. As a result of complications from the heart attack I almost died . The road to recovery took about eighteen months and even now I still have issues to deal with. As a result of almost dying many things have changed. Most notably my concept of time. By that I mean that I am acutely aware of my mortality, not morbidly but realistically. Before the heart attack I thought I would make it to 70's, 80'S or as my mother into 90's but now I realize everyday is a gift. I don't take it for granted. That is why I write I have something to say and I want to say it, before I can't say it anymore.
