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.

    Please pray for me & my husband. We are praying about changing churches. Please pray for the leading of the Holy Spirit to guide us that we make the right choice. Thank you.

    I strive to be the best Christian example that God wants me to be; however, I know I fail him on a daily basis. Sometimes I get so angry with myself because I may think, speak, or act in a way too quickly that displeases God. I am praying that God will help me to be more humble and give me more of His wisdom to do what He desires me to do so I can hear him say, “Well done my child good and faithful servant.” Please pray for me also!

    As believers we have much to look forward to with God’s promise of his new world and all the other things mentioned in his Holy Word. Thank you Holy God in the highest.

    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.

      We are not saved and promised a new life for any other reason than this…John 3:16. READ the book of John. We could never do enough good things to receive what our perfect Lord Jesus Christ did in our place.
