  • The new heavens is God's Kingdom under Christ Jesus' rule and the new earth is a righteous society of people who will be brought to perfection.

  • The earth is going to get a makeover. I just love a good makeover, don't you?!! The bad will go away and there will be a new King in town but the earth stays for us to live.

  • Isaiah 65:17
    For here I am creating new heavens and a new earth; and the former things will not be called to mind, neither will they come up into the heart.

    2 Peter 3:13
    But there are new heavens and a new earth that we are awaiting according to his promise, and in these righteousness is to dwell.

    Revelation 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the former heaven and the former earth had passed away, and the sea is no more.

  • this refers to eternity, when Satan is offically thrown into the lake of fire forever. At that time everything will be renewed and perfect and we will live in eternity with our Father and Savior.
