Wayne Grudem: “Christians often talk about living with God ‘in heaven’ forever. But in fact the biblical teaching is richer than that: it tells us that there will be new heavens and a new earth an entirely renewed creation – and we will live with God THERE… There will also be a new kind of unification of heaven and earth… There will be a joining of heaven and earth in this new creation.”
The new Jerusalem will be at the center of the future Heaven.
The new city will be a city.
The new city will be a physical place.
The new city will be beautiful.
The new city will be massive.
The new city will be perfect.
The new city will be radiant.
The new city is where God dwells among us.
The new earth will be MUCH LIKE this earth, but it will be FAR BETTER than this earth.
2 Peter 3:13
The new Earth is waiting on us.
The new Earth is the New Heaven. (They are one and the same.)
Jesus is the one who makes this possible.
Revelation 5:1-5, 9-13
