FINALLY THE ONLY THING REMAINING WILL BE THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST!
The earth that now stands will soon be replaced by a new heaven and a new earth!
“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.
Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.” [2Peter 3:10-13]
God will remove everything that is man-made and is a monument of man’s pride so that what ultimately remains will be the things that cannot be shaken ( Heb.12:27).
And there is only one thing on earth that cannot be shaken – The Church of Jesus Christ! As He hath said – “Upon this rock I will build My Church; and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it!” [Matt 16:18]
Believers have an unshakable dwelling place. When we were born-again, we were born into God’s kingdom and given a new safe position referred to as being “in Christ Jesus” (Rom.6:11). The forces of sin, the devil and the world can neither disrupt this Kingdom nor the relationship which the Lord has with His Elect. Even though life will at times entail suffering and tribulation, God’s Elect are forever secure.
For what power can stand against our Sovereign Lord Jesus Christ? Everything that exists must submit to Him. Even as wars rage, injustice spreads, and governments fail, He remains in absolute control.
We live in unsettling times. The more conditions worsen, the easier it is to see why scripture refers to God as a consuming fire (Heb.12:29). He will burn up all that displeases Him. . . . . until the only ones who remain are the righteous – His chosen sheep – who stand under His Lordship and await His kingdom.
Even so come quickly Lord Jesus!
