It is coming and we can have hope.
New Heaven, New Earth
“Christianity is a Gospel of crisis. It proclaims unmistakably that this world’s days are numbered. Every graveyard and every cemetery testify that the Bible is true. Our days on this planet are numbered. The Apostle James says that life is only a vapor that appears for a moment and then vanishes (James 4:14). The prophet Isaiah says that our life is like the grass that withers and the flower that fades (Isaiah 40:6,7).
There is no doubt that nations also come to an end when they have ceased to fulfill the function that God meant for them. The end will come with the return of Jesus Christ. He will set up a kingdom of righteousness and social justice where hatred, greed, jealousy, and death will no longer be known. That is why a Christian can be an optimist. That is why a Christian can smile in the midst of all that is happening. We know what will come. We know what the end will be: the triumph of the Lord Jesus Christ!
While the world around me is in such turmoil, Your peace lives in my heart, as I look for Your triumphant return!”*
Yes, a new heaven and a new earth will be in our future if we trust Jesus as Lord. Help others come to the saving knowledge of Christ so they too can belong to the family of believers that make up the church.
till the whole world knows Jesus then the end will come.
