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. Revelation 21:1
How many of you like to paint the walls in your house or have done it? I need to but have not. When paint starts getting old and tired looking often times a new look is needed to make every seem all new again. It is refreshing after you are done to see the crisp new colors. It is like living in a brand new place almost.
When the end comes to this Earth as we know it and Christ comes back He will have a new perfect kingdom. You can read about it in Revelation Chapters 20 and 21. In Verse 8 of Revelation 21 it says "But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death." No one knows when the Lord will come back. It will be a time when we least expect it." His freshly painted world so to speak without fault or blemish for those who inherit eternal life.
If you are not sure you will go to heaven don't wait. You never know when the Lord will sound that final trumpet. Simply pray in your own words and ask God to forgive you and cleanse you and that you believe in Him. Then of course your heart will be changed if it is a true repentance and you will desire to live for Him and serve Him. You will have that new fresh coat of paint.
PRAYER: I am thankful for the gift of eternal life. Help me be concerned for those friends and family who may not know you and pray for them to accept you and live for you. In Jesus' name. Amen.
