“Behold, the former things have come to pass, Now I declare new things; Before they spring forth I proclaim them to you.” Isaiah 42:9
What hope do you have for the future? Do you put your hope in working hard or maybe buying a lottery ticket? Well, God has promised to make all things new, the former things will pass away. So, what does that mean exactly? Well if you look currently, we have a lot of issues facing our future.
First issue is death, no matter how much money you have or successful you are, you can’t defeat death. But we have a savior who has defeated death for you and me. Not only that during the Resurrection we will be given perfect and immortal bodies, the way things were meant to be before sin entered the world
Second issue is The Earth, our homeland. Obviously, we have lots of issues with our planet including pollution, famine, and natural disasters. Well God has promised to create us a New Heaven and Earth, that way it was back in the Garden of Eden before Satan corrupted our Earth.
Third issue, disease, addiction, depression, anxiety, pain, ect. These will all be abolished. All the traps that keep you in chains today will be broken. No longer will have to worry about that illness or addiction you are battling. They have been defeated!
The former things are passing away, God is making all things new through Jesus Christ Amen!
