Isaiah 65:17-18

Isaiah 65:17–18 (ESV): "17  "For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth, and the former things shall not be remembered or come into mind. 18  But be glad and rejoice forever in that which I create; for behold, I create Jerusalem to be a joy, and her people to be a gladness."


Everyone is wondering what is in store for the world as we know it. God tells us destruction lies ahead for it but don't worry a new world is coming! After the seven year Tribulation occurs Christ will reign on earth for 1000 years. After which, the Lord will thrown the devil and his angels into the lake of fire along with the unredeemed. Finally, the old heavens and earth will pass away for God will create a new heaven and a new earth. After which the New Jerusalem will ascend and those in Christ will live with the Lord there forever (Rev 20-22).


The life to come is going to be something else. No more sorrow, no more pain, no more sickness and disease. It's gonna be rainbows and unicorns for real! How can it not be for we will be in the physical presence of Father, Son and Holy Ghost! Jesus will literally be the light of the world as there will be no need for any other source of light for He is all we will need.


Are you living for this life or the life to come? Live for eternity. It is gonna be so epic. Your best days now will pale in comparison to what it will be like in the new heavens and earth and the New Jerusalem. Store up your treasures in heaven Christian. Don't live for the now. Keep your mind on things above for an entirely new world is coming. One you don't want to miss. Amen?


Father, we thank You for the promise of eternity with You through Your Son. Help us to live now with all that we are for the next life. Help us to keep our eyes on You and remember this is the worst it gets for us. Our best days are ahead. Help us to keep eternity in view all the days of our lives we pray in Jesus' name, amen!
