December 17 – The Present Heaven And Earth Will Pass Away

heaven

God showed Prophet Daniel the end game for the existence of the present earth. The earth will become extinct, and wicked people who have lived in it will go into everlasting punishment of hell. At the same time, people who have lived godly lives on earth will be rewarded with the gift of eternal life. Daniel explained God’s vision,

“At that time Michael shall stand up, the great prince who stands watch over the sons of your people; and there shall be a time of trouble, Such as never was since there was a nation, even to that time. And at that time your people shall be delivered, every one who is found written in the book. And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, some to shame and everlasting contempt. Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever” (Daniel 12:1-3).

 

Lesson:

The present earth and heaven will soon become obsolete; God will bring them to a complete end. Jehovah will destroy the present earth alongside the wicked people who ever lived in it. (The present heaven will be removed also). Meanwhile, the Creator will create a new earth and new heaven with an established righteous government. People who ever served God well on earth and believed Jesus Christ as God’s Son will partake in the new earth ( and new heaven). Jehovah will provide everlasting peace for his newly created universe, and all his saints will have eternal satisfaction. Hence, since the present universe has a destructive end, all people should venture to partake in the new one to come. Every soul on earth should accept Jesus Christ as God’s true Son, and confess him as his/her personal Lord and Savior.

 

Prayer:

Dear God, please count me worthy to inherit your eternal kingdom. Forgive my sins, and cleanse me from all my unrighteousness. I confess Jesus Christ as your Son and accept him as my personal Lord and Savior. Please write my name in the book of life, and let me qualify to partake in your new earth and new heaven to come. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.
