A New Creation

Isaiah 65:17. “For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.”

There is no photo or artist’s rendering that can begin to show us what God has in store. When I look at the beauty all around us in today’s world, I can’t even imagine what the new one will be like.

What we do know is that His renewed creation will be so amazing that we’ll forget all about the old one.

This term, new heavens and a new earth, is found only four times in Scripture. Twice in Isaiah–here in today’s passage and in 66:22-24; in @ Peter 3: 13, and in Rev. 21-22.

This new creation will take place at the end of the Millennium, after all rebellion is put down on earth, all enemies are destroyed, and God has become all in all again, as before rebellion was started–first by Lucifer and later by Adam (Rom 8:18-25; I Cor. 15:24-28; Eph. 1:10; 2 Peter. 3:10-13; Rev. 21-22.)

  1. Linda I and such a lover of anyting creation oriented. I love the outdoors and this time of year when the weather is warm enough and the days are longer it’s like a natural high for me being outside and enjoying God’s creation. I can’t wait to find out what heaven is like and what the new Earth will look like someday. The way that God makes things so perfect it’s hard to fathom what the new will look like that will be so much better that we won’t even remember what we’re seeing now. Thank you for your faithfulness to continue like this and thank you for reminding us the blessing that we have.

    1. Joe, thank you so much for your encouragement. I have only a few more verses in ch. 65, then ch. 66 and I will have finished Isaiah. Nearly three years, what a journey it’s been. What an incredible blessing.
