For I saw a new heaven and a new earth for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea Revelation 21:1
WORDS OF WISDOM
Just as our lives on earth are temporary, so the earth is temporary. It is not intended to last forever. That is one reason we are to worship the Creator, not the creation. We have now come full circle in our study. We began with creation, and we are ending with the new creation. In the beginning God created all things. Jesus is the creator God who went to the cross to pay the price to redeem His creation by dying for all of our sins. He will take us into His new creation, the new heaven and earth of Revelation 21. Praise Him!!
"We live unto the Lord."
for if we live, we live for the Lord, or if we die, we die for the Lord; therefore whether we live or die, we are the Lord's.
We read in Revelation that God will bring about a new heaven and earth where He reins in all His glory. Why then did He create the current heaven and earth filled with sin and sorrow? It would have been so much easier for Him [speaking in human terms] to just start with the new heaven and earth in the first place. It seems like it would have saved Him a lot of trouble. So, why then are we here? What is God's purpose for us?
Commit yourself to living your life for His glory and fulfill your purpose here on earth. Spread the good news of the gospel of salvation and you will be blessed.
