Present Heaven and Earth Will Be Destroyed

 

Scripture: 2 Peter 3: 10. “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief, and then the heavens will pass with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.

The day of the Lord will come as a thief and then heavens will pass away with a loud roar, heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and earth and works performed on it exposed.

But according to God’s promise we’re waiting for new heaven and earth in which righteousness dwells, but we are not to ignore this truth, become tired of waiting: for with the Lord one day is like a thousand years and a thousand years like one day. However, the Lord is not slow to fulfill His promise, as some understand slowness, but is patient  with us, not wanting any to perish, but all come to repentance.

In keeping with God’s promise, we are anticipating a new heaven and earth where righteousness dwells. Since we know this, we should share it with those who do not know: because eternity will be a very long time, and imperative that all make their preparation to spend it with our heavenly Father, who loves lost individuals enough to allow His Son to make salvation possible to all who put their faith in Him and what for lost people on the old rugged cross.

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life: for God did not send His Son  into the world to condemn the world but through Him they might be saved. John 3: 16-17.

 

Prayer: Father, thanks for Your everlasting love for all people and thanks Jesus, for dying that lost men, women, boys, and girls who trust You can spend eternity with You. We pray in Your name. Amen.
