But he makes a new heavens.
Sorry, that post is for fewarechosen.
yea i think thats how i understand it as in scripture.
the first earth perished in flood - was wiped over.
the earth that is now is reserved unto fire - burnt up
so first water then fire,
inline with water baptism/fire baptism
just sharing thoughts on how i see it, not pushing some agenda, thought it was interesting convo.
2Pe 3:5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
2Pe 3:6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
2Pe 3:7 But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
2Pe_3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
i get the feeling its tied to the "water" spoken of in genises
and to be honest havent thought prayed or pondered this much, just sorta talkin about it as how i see what part of it i do see lol
and also remember the flood let out of serpents mouth.
I wonder if the decline of the earth andheavens we observe now is a consequence of the fall. I don't know why God would create a universe designed to fall apart and pass away.
Unhappy is he who mistakes the branch for the tree, the shadow for the substance.
Either this man was, and is, the Son of God: or else a madman or something worse. You can shut Him up for a fool, you can spit at Him and kill Him as a demon; or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has not left that open to us. He did not intend to.C.S. Lewis
You're gonna make a difference when you lay down your life, and in complete submission to God, choose to die with Him in service to other people.
