A New World

By   •   August 10   •   Topics: ,

At the close of the Bible we encounter these words, “And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away.” A new world is coming! Each time we pray in the Lord’s Prayer, “Thy kingdom come,” we should remember that that prayer will be answered. Heaven is described as a new creation in which we shall move in new bodies, possessed of new names, singing new songs, living in a new city, by a new form of government, and challenged by new prospects of eternity with social justice for all. The paradise that man lost will be regained, but it will be much more. It will not be the old one repaired, patched up, and made over. When God says, “Behold, I make all things new,” the emphasis is on all things. One day we shall live in a brand-new world. Centuries ago the apostles greeted each other with the word, “Maranatha”—the Lord is coming.

Prayer for the day

Use me, Savior, to hasten Maranatha, as I tell others that they, too, can be made new through Your divine love.

    I absolutely can’t wait to go to Heaven. Not only do I want to see God and Jesus there, but also my grandpa and my dog Bailey there too. I just can’t wait!

    We are definitely seeing the signs of the Lords coming. It scary because sometimes I don’t know if I’m doing what it takes to be accepted by God to be accepted in heaven. I am focusing on the 7 deadly sins and working towards living Gods warnings and laws for acceptance into his Kingdom.
