A New Earth

Something to think about.

A New Earth

13 Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells. 2 Peter 3:13

 

I don’t think anyone disputes the earth will eventually cease to sustain life. There are differences of opinion on how the eventuality will occur but not on its occurrence.  The Bible says that God Himself will bring about the end of the world. It also says that He will create a new world and a new heaven. It will not be a rebirth it will not be something that comes out of the ashes of the old. It will be something entirely different because it will be a place of righteousness. Any and all forms of sin will not be present there even the remembrance of sin will not be known.   

Only righteousness will be allowed in this new heaven and new earth. Only those who by faith have been justified, sanctified and cleansed by the blood of Jesus will be allowed access. Since it is impossible to attain righteousness in any other way all who reject Christ not be there. Lets not complicated it. Let’s not get caught up in laws, rituals traditions and old habits. Jesus said, “I am the way the truth and the life.” Our eternal future is wrapped up in this one man. God himself removed every hindrance to salvation by offering His son as payment for our sin. So we may live forever with Him in the new heavens and earth.

Encouraging One Another

Something to think about.

Encouraging One Another

23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. Hebrews 10:23-25

We’ve all heard it, I don’t have to go to church to be a Christian. Why then did God institute corporate gatherings? In the old and new testaments, the people gathered together at predetermined times to be taught, educated, and uplifted in the word and ways of God.  We were not created to be spiritual isolationist. We were designed to be bound together in love for our God.  Not even in Christ did we see the totality of God. We need each other to stay faithful to be educated and grow. To reach the purpose God has provided for us. We were made to help each other along the path of life. Without each other, we will end up creating a path that will not lead us to Christ, salvation or joy. We will end up lost.
