New Heaven and New Earth Lasts Forever The New Heaven and New EarthNew Heaven and New Earth Lasts Forever The New Heaven and New Earth

The new heaven and the new earth endure forever. “Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. Then I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, ‘Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people. God Himself will be with them and be their God. And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.’ Then He who sat on the throne said, ‘Behold, I make all things new.’ And He said to me, ‘Write, for these words are true and faithful.’ And He said to me, ‘It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. He who overcomes shall inherit all things, and I will be his God and he shall be My son.’ Having the glory of God. Her light was like a most precious stone, like a jasper stone, clear as crystal. The construction of its wall was of jasper; and the city was pure gold, like clear glass. The foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with all kinds of precious stones: the first foundation was jasper, the second sapphire, the third chalcedony, the fourth emerald. And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him. They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. There shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever.” (See Rev. 21: 1–7, 11, 18–19; 22:3–5.) Hallelujah! Praise be to God.

Dear brothers and sisters, everything will be made new on that Day. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain. We will live and reign with the Lord in His glorious kingdom forever and ever. Since we have such a great and glorious hope, let us pursue godliness and holiness. We should not only be sure of our born again (being saved) status, but also seek to be filled with the Holy Spirit to become overcoming Christians who will receive the reward, for “he who overcomes will inherit all this”.

“Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells. Therefore, beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless” (2 Pet. 3:11–14).

“For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever” (1 John 2:16–17).

“Behold, I am coming quickly! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book” (Rev. 22:7).

“And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work” (Rev. 22:12).

Dear brothers and sisters! The Day of the Lord’s coming is at hand! The Devil is working very hard to deceive man. In the last days, if God’s people tolerate sins, adultery and heresies, will God not demand an account for this? The Judgment Day is near. Quickly come before God and repent before God, rid ourselves completely of sins and pray for the spiritual rain. When the Church is revived by the Holy Spirit, the gospel will be preached swiftly to the ends of the earth. Millions of the slaves of sins will be liberated! However, revival begins with each individual. Our Savior Jesus will have mercy on those who repent and turn to God. God will not ask how much you loved Him in the past, but He will ask about your present condition. Is your lamp filled with oil always? Is your light bright and clear all the time? Can you declare, “O Lord, I am ready”? May brothers and sisters come before the Lord to gain the abundant spiritual grace, advance the gospel in one heart, and await the meeting with the Lord in glory. Amen. (Please refer to “Truth of the Spiritual Grace”.)

“He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly” (Rev. 22:20).
