The term new heavens and new earth are not literal, because think about it, he would have to destroy this entire universe, and why would he do that, sin is confined to the surface of our earth, and getting rid of the sinners is pretty easy for God to do without destroying the heavens or the earth, which you will recall he promised not to do, so that must mean something else and it does. Every month our calender offers us a new moon, so now what happened to the old one? See what I mean, it means something else, it will be clear as I quote more scriptures. At Revelations 12: 7 – 12 we read how Michael ( Jesus ) kicked Satan and his angles out of heaven and cast them down to the earth in essence cleansing the heavens of sinful disobedient angels and making the heavens like new. The same thing will happen on earth when sinful men are removed from it and destroyed, and if a person is destroyed at Gods hands he stays destroyed, God does not make mistakes. Loosing your life because of Adamic sin , that sin is paid for upon your natural death, but if you have found yourself standing toe to toe arguing with God, you are going down and you are staying down. Make up your mind right now, to listen to what God has to say, and let Satanic teachings go with their teachers ( and yes I meant teachers plural, Satan has many teachers). Every single thing I am saying I am giving you scriptural references, I cannot make you look them up, but you certainly should.
So God has in mind as we can see from the scriptures, that he made the earth, for man to dwell in, and that the earth will remain forever, and that it will not be destroyed as some believe, at least we can see clearly that the Bible says that. We cannot control what their books tell them, but the Bible tells us that man will reside forever on the earth. Of course, right this moment, death is actually a blessing, if you had to live on this earth exactly like it is right now forever, well lets just say that the world could not contain all of the Xanax you would need just to keep your head, I don’t even think that could keep you sane, there is only so much madness the human mind can endure. But listen, God has a plan to fix all of this, and this plan is referred to in the Bible as his Kingdom. Life under the rulership of Gods Kingdom will be much different than what we have now, and the Bible does mention some of it, you probably guessed already that I am going to tell you a little about it. At Isaiah 65: 17 – 25 we read, ” For hear I am creating new heavens and a new earth, and the former things will not be called to mind, neither will they come up into the heart. ” 20. “No more will there come to be a suckling a few days old from that place, neither an old man who does not fulfill his days. ” 21. And they will certainly build houses and have occupancy, and they will certainly plant vineyards and eat their fruitage. They will not build and someone else have occupancy; they will not plant and someone else do the eating. For like the days of a tree will the days of my people be, and the work of their own hands my chosen ones will use to the full. They will not toil for nothing neither will they bring to birth for disturbance, because they are the offspring made up of the blessed ones of Jehovah, and their descendants with them. And it will actually occur that before they call out I myself shall answer, while they are yet speaking, I myself shall hear. ” 25. ” The wolf and the lamb themselves will feed as one, and the lion will eat straw just like the bull, and as for the serpent, his food will be dust. They will do no harm in all my holy mountain, Jehovah has said. “
Isaiah 45:18 says this, ” For this is what Jehovah has said, the Creator of the heavens, He the true God, the Former of the earth and the Maker of it, He the one who firmly established it, who did not create it simply for nothing, who formed it even to be inhabited; I am Jehovah and there is no one else. ” We read here that God has a purpose for the earth, and that purpose is not to leave it a scorched out shell, but for it to be inhabited. So the theology that Christendom teaches is that the earth is going to be a void, with everyone going to either heaven or hell, but once again we can clearly see that is not what the bible teaches.
At Psalms 115: 16 we read, ” As regards the heavens, to Jehovah the heavens belong, But the earth he has given to the sons of men. ” Once again, the gift from God is this beautiful earth !! Why would he burn it up, make it unlivable and then give the chard remains to the sons of men??? They argue that first God takes men to heaven and then he burns up the earth and then delivers some men back to the earth, I have to ask why on earth would he do that, especially in light of telling all of us that he was never again going to destroy the earth. Once we stop arguing with every word out of God’s mouth, he is very easy to understand. Just read what he wrote and believe it.
At Ecclesiastes 1:4 we read, ” A generation is going and a generation is coming, but the earth is standing even to time indefinite. ” In no way can that scripture be turned around to read that the earth is going to be consumed with fire, yet, that is exactly what Christendom teaches. Stop listening to the preachers, and start listening to God .
Psalms 37: 29 says this, ” The righteous themselves will possess the earth, And they will reside forever upon it. ” Here again we have an example of scriptural proof that the Bible says that the earth will remain forever and righteous men will remain forever upon it. If you feel that you are going to go to heaven or someone you know is going to go to hell, well OK, but the Bible says that some people are going to reside forever upon the earth. What if, just what if, you could live forever upon this earth, along with all of your loved ones, those living now, and those that have fallen asleep in death, and have come back to life?? What could you all accomplish, if you could live forever, think about it.
One of the most famous and well known scriptures is what Christendom likes to call the ” Our Father Prayer,” and it is found at Mathew chapter 6 verse 9 and 10 and it reads, ” You must pray then this way’ ” Our Father in the heavens, let your name be sanctified. Let your Kingdom come. Let your will take place, as in heaven, also upon earth.” A few points of this model prayer are this; Notice where the Father was at the time this prayer was being offered up. He was not on earth standing next to them was he? The Scripture says that he was in heaven !! ” Our Father in the heavens !!! Jesus was not offering up the prayer to someone on earth was he ??? For instance himself like some teach ??? Some teach that he was speaking of himself in the third person, really !! No, the prayer was being offered to a totally different person, in a far away place. The next point is, ” Let your name be sanctified ” which means, to set apart for sacred use, to make holy. the key point here is, “Let your name be Holy”, there was a name associated with this prayer and it was to be considered Holy. What do you think that name was ??? Could it be the name of the person to whom the prayer was to be directed ??? The prayer was to be directed to someone in the heavens, right ?? Jesus was standing right in front of them, so it was not himself he was talking about, this was no time to be cute, funny, or misleading, if Jesus had wanted his followers to pray to him, he would of plainly and clearly told them so, but HE DID NOT, he directed their prayers to someone else. Who was this person and what is his name, that we were instructed to save apart for sacred use ???? The next point in this model prayer given by Jesus to his disciples mentions this, ” Let your Kingdom come “. Here is that word again, Kingdom. It was the theme of Jesus’s preaching, he always pointed toward the kingdom. We are being taught here to pray for it, for it to come, that must mean that it was NOT already there, but reserved for the future, but by means that it already was assigned a title ( kingdom ) it must already be considered a reality. The next point is this, While the scriptures point out that Jesus was to be the King in that kingdom, here he speaks of it as belonging to someone else, ” Let YOUR kingdom come. ” he says. Not let my kingdom come!!! The next point is this, ” Let your will take place, as in heaven, also upon earth . ” By saying, let your will take place, Jesus was once again pointing out the will of someone else other than himself, and by the mere mention of it, could indicate that the will of that person was not at that time being done completely, and the prayer was a pleading for the will to be done. And he mentions an example of where the will was being carried out, the heavens, the pleading was for that same will to be carried out on earth. For Gods will to be carried out on earth, and since this kingdom did not exist on earth at that moment, this was for a future fulfillment, but for any fulfillment to be executed toward the earth, the earth has to be here. And having Gods Kingdom on earth, would certainly mean, that he most likely would not have a kingdom that was scorched out and destroyed would he ??? And also would not his established kingdom on earth need subjects ???? If everyone were to go to either Heaven or Hell, who would be left on earth to be the subjects of Gods Kingdom. ??? What if the scripture meant exactly how it is read !!!!
At Genesis the 9 Th chapter and verses 12,13,14,15,16,17 we read “And God added: ” This is the sign of the covenant that I am giving between me and you and every living soul that is with you, for the generations to time indefinite. 13. My rainbow I do give in the cloud, and it must serve as a sign of the covenant between me and the earth. 14. And it shall occur that when I bring a cloud over the earth, then the rainbow will certainly appear in the cloud. 15. And I shall certainly remember my covenant which is between you and me and every living soul among all flesh, and no more will the waters become a deluge to bring all flesh to ruin. 16. And the rainbow must occur in the cloud, and I shall certainly see it to remember the covenant to time indefinite between God and every living soul among all flesh that is upon the earth.” 17. And God repeated to Noah: ” This is the sign of the covenant that I do establish between me and all flesh that is upon the earth.” After the Garden of Eden mankind went out from it, and life was hard for them because God was giving them a chance to prove that they had a better way than he did. Satan jumped at the chance to make their lives a living hell. He worked overtime at twisting mankind up, and he made a real mess of things. So much so that God felt he had to wipe things out and start over with only eight people, Noah and his family. Now there is a big story to tell here, but I am going to skip over it for the moment, and get back to it much later. In every tribe on earth, in the remotest of Jungles, there is the story of the great flood and even scientist recognize it. Notice in this scripture what God said ” for the generations to TIME INDEFINITE” ” and I shall certainly see it to remember the covenant to TIME INDEFINITE” He would see the rainbow and remember his covenant with man to time indefinite. Time indefinite means, without end. After the flood of Noah, God made a covenant with man to time indefinite. He also said at 13, ” My rainbow I do give in the cloud, and it must serve as a sign of the covenant between me and the earth.” This was an agreement, a contract, to time indefinite, to the earth and to man. It is important to notice that there were two things he made this covenant with, one of them was the earth, and another was to man, mentioned together and in separate scriptures individually, notice that. Why would God make a covenant he knew he was not going to keep, Why would God make a covenant to never again destroy the earth, if he already knew he was going to. If God were going to remove mankind from the earth, and place them in a fiery hell to torture them forever, or place them in heaven to be with him, why would he draft up this phony good for nothing not worth the paper it was drafted up on, covenant, that was supposed to last forever ??? WHOA could God really be the liar that Satan made him out to be, and if he was, what was all that Noah and the flood stuff all about ???? Why not just take faithful Noah and his family up to Heaven since they were the good guys, and leave the earth destroyed and leave all of the rest of mankind who died in the flood in hell to burn and be tortured forever, and be done with the whole mess ???? If I was a member of Christendom, which I am certainly not, that is probably one of the first questions I would of asked. Lets just end all of this nonsense right now !!!!! But here is the deal, God is not a liar, and the scriptures say at Hebrews 6:18 says that ” it is impossible for God to lie.” Every single thing that God said he was going to do he has done. Here he promised that the earth and man would not be destroyed like that again, and this was a promise to time indefinite. So God has a covenant between the earth and man that will include the sign of his rainbow that will be for time indefinite, that means that the earth and man and the rainbow and God must all be around and exist for this covenant to have and maintain fulfillment, right ???, Isn’t that how you read and understand that to mean, isn’t that logical and reasonable, doesn’t that make perfect sense, isn’t it easy to understand. I promise not to destroy the earth and the human race again nor the animals. Pretty simple at least for my simple mind to understand.
