Heaven and Earth will Pass Away


HEAVEN AND EARTH WILL PASS AWAY

Jesus said while predicting the destruction of Jerusalem, “Heaven and earth will pass away” (Mt 24:35). According to his prediction, prior to the coming of the Son of Man and “Immediately after the tribulation of those days, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken” (Mt 24:29). Hence, the celestial bodies that God had created will undergo a refinement. Similar to the transformed human body after the resurrection (Phil 3:21), there will be a transformation in nature.

According to the Book of Revelation, heaven and the earth will pass away, and the sea will be no more. Jerusalem will be a new city (Rev 21:1-2). Through Isaiah, God had predicted, “See, I am creating new heavens and a new earth; the former things shall not be remembered nor come to mind. Instead, shout for joy and be glad forever in what I am creating. Indeed, I am creating Jerusalem to be a joy and its people to be a delight” (Isa 65:17- 18). Peter affirmed this by stating, “the heavens will be dissolved in flames and the elements melted by fire. But according to his promise we await new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells” (2 Pet 3:12-13). Hence, acquiring and preserving wealth in this world is worthless.
