This heaven and earth will pass away (1 Peter 21:33) (Mark 13:31) (2 Peter 3:10)!
“For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens” (2 Corinthians 5:1).
Before he left this earth, our Lord Jesus very clearly told his disciples, saying: “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away” (Matthew 24:35).
“In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you” (John 14:2). He also told his disciples, “[I GO TO PREPARE A PLACE FOR YOU]. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also” (John 14:2–3).
Jesus is in the heavens where there is already NEW HEAVENS AND A NEW EARTH where there is the NEW JERUSALEM. In the Book of Revelation John said:
“[AND I SAW A GREAT WHITE THRONE, AND HIM THAT SAT ON IT, FROM WHOSE FACE THE EARTH AND THE HEAVEN FLED AWAY; AND THERE WAS FOUND NO PLACE FOR THEM]” (Revelation 20:11).
“And I saw a [NEW HEAVEN AND A NEW EARTH]: [FOR THE FIRST HEAVEN AND THE FIRST EARTH WERE PASSED AWAY]; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, [NEW JERUSALEM], [COMING DOWN FROM GOD OUT OF HEAVEN], prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God” (Revelation 21:1-3).
“While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal; but [THE THINGS WHICH ARE NOT SEEN ARE ETERNAL]” (2 Corinthians 4:18).
“[FOR SINCE THE BEGINNING OF THE WORLD] men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what [HE HATH PREPARED FOR HIM THAT WAITETH FOR HIM]” (Isaiah 64:4).
“It is good that a man should both hope and quietly [WAIT FOR THE SALVATION] of the LORD” (Lamentation 3:26).
