New Heavens and Earth

The Creator is eternal, but this creation is not. Several passages of Scripture talk about how things now known will grow old, wear out, and later are changed (Ps 102:25-27). The Almighty has promised not to destroy the Earth with a flood again. However, in the end, it seems that ‘fire’ shall be used (2 Pet 3:10-13). All of creation waits for this time of vanity to end (Rom 8:18-22).

Scripture does not give much detail about the distant future, but there are some details which mention a new Heavens and Earth. It is spoken of as a time of refreshing and of restitution (Acts 3:19-21). It is a time when the New Jerusalem will come and the Creator will dwell with His people as it is meant to be (Rev 21:1-3). The troubles of what is known now will be forgotten and there will be joy (Is 65:16-18).

Elsewhere, Scripture speaks of how animals will dwell together in peace again. Man will also be at peace with his surroundings, with the animals, and with each other. The effects of sin and suffering will be gone.
