Today’s Promise

I Will Live on the New Earth God is Creating

Revelation 21:1

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first Earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea. – Revelation 21:1


A New Earth and Heaven

One day, God will reveal a new heaven and new Earth specifically created for His kingdom and those who have put their faith in Him. By the way, it’s going to be amazing!

The Book of Revelation

So many Christians avoid reading the book of Revelation. Some think the book is too complicated or confusing. However, the book of Revelation gives us a wonderful picture of the end times. It describes how God judges the world for its sin, how Satan is defeated, and how we will spend eternity with God. 

Toward the end of the book, the Apostle John sees a new heaven and new Earth God has created for His children. Pain, suffering, and tears are all removed. Satan and his kingdom are defeated, judged, and cast into eternal punishment. The book of life is opened, and whoever’s name is not found is thrown into the lake of fire. (Revelation 20:15)

The Kingdom of God

God’s kingdom remains victorious. His enemies are defeated, and the only thing that remains is the Kingdom of God on Earth. As God reveals the new heaven and new Earth, He declares that He makes all things new.

God renews and restores the Earth to a greater glory than the garden of Eden. The effects of sin have been burned away, and God’s new Earth is revealed.

Imagine what it will be like to live in the Kingdom of God on the new Earth? Imagine what a sunset will look like? Imagine spending eternity in the presence of God living on the new Earth? Imagine your excitement as you discover your new, eternal body. A body that will never grow old, never get sick, and will never experience pain. Imagine the celebrations that will go on.

I love what John Ethridge says in his book, All Things New. “No wonder joy is the constant mood of the kingdom!”

You will have all eternity to explore this new Earth and heaven. 

Your hope in Christ is not to spend eternity sitting on a cloud, playing the harp. Your hope is living on a new earth and a new heaven. Experiencing all the wonderful things God has prepared for you. How can your heart not explode with joy and anticipation!

Look at that promise again.

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first Earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea. – Revelation 21:1

Make these confessions.

  • One day, I will see the new heaven and Earth God has made.
  • One day, all my pain and every tear will be removed.
  • One day, I will enjoy a new, eternal body made to live on the Earth God has created.
  • One day, I will live in the constant joy of God’s presence.

In Jesus name,
Amen
