Former Things

“For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; And the former things will not be remembered or come to mind. Isaiah 65:17

When you look around or watch the news , you see there is a lot of pain and suffering in the world. But we can have hope, because God has promised one day the former things will not be remembered anymore. So what are the former things? Pain, sorrow, and death. God has promised these things will one day become former things (Revelation 21:4)

Humanity spend a lot of time trying to save the planet but God has promised to create a New Heavens and Earth. One day when he reestablishes his Kingdom, he will recreate the Paradise here on Earth, just as it was for Adam and Eve. A place of peace, love , and joy.

So what happened? How did the Earth and humanity fall so far away from the beginning? It was the introduction of sin from Satan. Sin is the downfall of the human race, the separation from God. Through sin was the introduction of disease and death.

But God has a redemption plan for us all through Jesus Christ. At the cross he has overcome the world, he has overcome sin and death. And because of Christ, those who are redeemed through him will inherit the new heavens and Earth, and the former things will pass away in Jesus Name Amen
