There are a few verses that give us an idea about what life will be like and what we will do. Even if we didn't have any verses about
life on the new earth, we would know it will be amazing because of what God has promised ... 1 Corinthians 2:9 ...'But as it is
written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that
love him.' ... What a wonderful promise that is, and one we can trust in. We know from this verse alone that life on the new earth is
going to be beyond our wildest dreams!
Isaiah 65:17-19 ...'For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come
into mind. But be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy.
And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of
God has also given us a little peek at what life will be like. Take a look at the following verses:
Isaiah 65:21-22 ...'And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them. They
shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of my people, and
mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands.' ... So we will build our own houses on the new earth and plant gardens and enjoy
the work of our own hands. No longer will we have to work for others like we do now.
Isaiah 66:22-23 ...'For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your
seed and your name remain. And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all
flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD.' ... So on the new earth we will go to the New Jerusalem every month (new moon) and
every Sabbath day to worship God. We can understand going to worship God every week on the Sabbath day, but why every month also?
Because there is a tree in the New Jerusalem, the tree of life, that will produce new fruit every month, and we will go to eat of that
fruit ... Revelation 22:2 ...'In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which
bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.'
Will there be any animals on the new earth? Yes there will be ... Isaiah 65:25 ...'The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the
lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent's meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain,
saith the LORD.' ... We can see that on the new earth, the animals will dwell together in peace. Praise God!!
2 Peter 3:13 ...'Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth
Life on the new earth is going to be glorious. No more pain, no more tears or sorrow, because we will be immortal. We will have a
beautiful new earth to explore and build homes and gardens upon, and we will long enjoy the work of our own hands. Then there is the
New Jerusalem where God's throne, and the throne of Christ Jesus will be. We will go to the New Jerusalem every week and month to
worship God and Jesus. Just imagine what that worship service will be like? I don't know about you, but I can't wait for it!! There
will be no night time in the New City because God will lighten it Himself with His presence ... Revelation 22:5 ...'And there shall
be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever
The only thing that the Bible doesn't confirm is the fact that there is a vast universe out there for us to explore. Will we be able to
explore the great universe that God has created? I believe we will, after all why would God create it all if we couldn't enjoy exploring
it? It does confirm that we will be made like the angels ... Luke 20:36 ...'Neither can they die any more: for they are equal unto
the angels.' ... Now the angels can fly, so it's a good chance that if we are made into like the angels, then we will be able to fly
The new earth awaits all those who follow Christ Jesus, and have the grace of God. I want to be there, how about you?
