We believe in God… Creator of heaven and earth
“See, I will create
new heavens and a new earth.
The former things will not be remembered,
nor will they come to mind.”
Our world is beautiful and very wonderful. But the best is yet to come, for God the Creator has not finished his masterpiece. The world that we know and love is actually the blueprint for the new world that will come into existence when Jesus returns.
The new universe, though based on the old one, really will be ‘new’. The Bible can only describe it in terms of what we know now: peace, harmony, agricultural prosperity, houses, trees, animals, feasting… But in many ways it will be very different from the present world: no suffering, no fear, no frustration, no pain, and no death (Revelation 21:4).
Of one thing we are assured: there will be no bitter memories, no ‘baggage’ from the past. Even the scars will be healed. We shall be at peace within ourselves as well as with one another. And all our longings will be fulfilled.
