Future home of the heavenly Bridgroom and Earthly Bride.

2 Peter 3:5-7,
5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
6 Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
7 But the heavens and the earth, which now are, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and the perdition of ungodly men.

What a promise of these prophets and great sages, teachers of the Bible, way back in ancient days seeing this glorious day come! By these passages one might think, or be led rather, to believe that the whole planet of this earth will be destroyed. “I make a new heaven and a new earth.” See?— that the heavens will be gone and the earth will be gone— completely annihilated. But a close study, and with the help of the Holy Spirit, we can see the truth of this, and that's what we're going into.

It is only the atmospheres around it and the sin that's upon the earth that will be destroyed. Now, we realize that the heavens means the atmospheres above.

What does it do? It.... Then these thistles, and sickness, and death, and politics, and sinful men, and sinful women, and evil spirits will all be gone away and annihilated. It has to be done that way, because we are going to live right here. We'll prove that by the Bible. Right here is where we live. Now notice, thistles, germs, all sicknesses, and things will be completely taken away. All of this existence that's in the earth now: man-made systems, politics, sin, all kinds of evil spirits that the world is contaminated with— and all the heavens above us in here is contaminated with evil spirits. Now, we're going to go deep and long in this, see. All this exists in the heavens, or atmospheres, and the earth which is now—this earth holds those things. But it wasn't made for that purpose. Sin caused it to be like that. It was made by God, the Creator. But all— and all of our bodies that we live in now was put on the earth when God created it, because you're out of the dust of the earth. It was all laid out here when God Himself created. You were in his thinking, and in Him, the great eternal, was the thought, which is his attribute. And now sin caused all this to happen, and God through this age is gathering up his material.

Satan is still here. That's the reason all these things happen. He's still here, and all of his evil forces are still here. Notice, that's why the earth now is so filthy. That's why the scum and ridiculous things that goes on— bloodshed, war, politics, sin, adultery, all kinds of filthiness goes on—is because that Satan is the ruler of this earth and this atmosphere. You say, “The atmosphere?” Yes, sir!

Both the heavens and earth now is contaminated with devils that can accuse us before God. Jesus is there to intercede for us (see?), while the accusers keep pointing a finger “They did this. They did this. They did this.” But the blood still covers! He came to redeem that elected that He foresaw. That's why it's so filthy today.

Here the apostle, in II Peter here, the 2nd chapter, and the 5th and 6th verse (Yes, I've got it), he refers to three stages of the earth. See, he gets three stages of it. Notice how he brings them. The old world stood out of the water. Now, that was the antediluvian world. Now the one that is— the present world we live in now (called it a world), the old world that stood out of water (Genesis 1:2), now and the world that is now present, and then again he refers to another one, the world that is to come, the new world— three worlds, three stages of the world.

And notice how God makes plain to us his plan of redemption. Oh, this just thrilled my soul when I saw it! How He makes plain to us here now, his plan of redemption. Now, compare what we see with our own eyes what God has done to redeem his world! He's done the same plan to redeem his people! For the unchangeable God changes not any of his plans or anything. Such a glorious thing!

How He led us to Himself, to tabernacle in us by three stages of grace, just like He's led the world in three stages to come through the world. As God will come to the world after it has gone through three different stages of purification, that's exactly how He comes to us through three stages of grace. I've taught that at the beginning; I've never changed since. It's God's Word!

Notice, the old world (the antediluvian), the world that's present now, and the one to come. Now, first stage that He brings us to.... See, his plan of redemption is exactly the same by everything. He uses the same method. He never changes. He said, in Malachi 3, “I am God and I change not!” The way He does it, therefore, if He saved the first man He ever saved by the shed blood of an innocent one, He'll have to save the next one; and everyone He saves will have to be the same way. If He healed a man at any time through the journey of life— let it be in the days of Jesus, the apostles, the prophets, whenever it was— when the same conditions is met He's got to do it again! That's right. He doesn't change. Man changes, time changes, age changes, dispensation changes, but God remains the same— perfect! What a hope that ought to give the sick people.

If He ever healed a person, He has to do it again when the same conditions is met. If He ever saved a man, He's got to do it on the same grounds He did it the first time. If He ever filled a man with the Holy Ghost, He's got to do it on the same grounds He did the first time. If He ever raised a man up from the grave, He's got to do it the second time and every other time on the same principle.

He doesn't change. Oh, what a hope that gives me! What is it? Not in some man-made theory, something that groups of men have come together, but his unchangeable Word! You say, “Is it the truth?” He said, “Let every man's word be a lie and mine be true. For heavens and earth will pass away but my Word shall never fail.” All Scripture is given by inspiration, therefore, it's good and profitable for doctrine; and remember that all Scripture will be fulfilled! Every bit of it!

In a new earth, new heavens will never be blackened again. When this new earth is to come, the devil will be bound. Satan, he's still loose now; he's accuser, but in the new earth, he will be bound and cast into the lake of fire, in this holy fire.

Then in this new earth— let's look at it for a few minutes now. In this new earth the skies will never be black again. No, that's from the curse— never be black again with angry clouds! Winds will never blow across her again like that. No, she'll never tear up the trees and tear up the houses and turn over the things. Lightning and the wrath'll never belch from Satan across there and kill a man walking down the road or burn up a building. See? No, no more. There'll be no more typhoons sweep down and storms and tornadoes and tear up houses and kill little children and things. Unh-uh, won't be no more. Trying to destroy, it won't be there. Satan is cast out.

Even these things: Satan, sinners are gone for eternity, never no more to be ... all.... See, Satan cannot create. If he is, he's God. See? He can only pervert what has been created. See? And all perversion will— perverting will be done away with, and death is a pervertage of life, and when the perversion's done there can be no more death. Old age is a sign of death, and when old age is gone away, life comes in. All perversion signs and everything else is gone. Thorns and thistles is a sign of sin. The earth'll be cursed with them, and when they're done away with.... Sickness come by that, it'll be done away with. Death'll be done away with. Bloodshed will be done away with.

Nothing will ever touch that sod but holiness— the redeemed. Oh my! Oh, I just feel so good! God and his creation and his creatures of this creation is redeemed by his own blood; cleansed by his own cleansing process— his germ-killing, sin-killing process— like if anything is sterilized. The best sterilization we've ever has been fire. You can take anything and wash it with soapsuds and all these chemicals that they talk about; it still ain't free, but you burn it once.

And when the holy fire of God sterilizes the earth... when the chemicals... He's lifted his bride, which can come into heaven with Him while this is going on, and comes back upon the earth again— a new heavens and a new earth. The cold winter can't hurt it; the hot summers can't hurt it; the deserts will blossom as a rose; sin and sinners are gone; God in his creatures and creation is dwelling together in perfect harmony. As the heavens and the earth is husband and wife, so is Christ and the church. And they all meet in one big glorious plan of redemption and is brought right into the bosoms of God again. You see it?

And in the new earth, there is a new city (Oh my! Now listen close! Don't forget this!) that Jesus said in John 14, He would go to prepare. “Let not your hearts be troubled (when He's going away). I have a reason to go away. You believe in God,” He said, “believe also in Me.” They couldn't see He was God. Said, “You believed in God, now you believe in Me. And I'm going to prepare a place for you. In my Father's house is many mansions. In my Father's kingdom is many palaces.” Christ is there under the construction of this New Jerusalem now. Now, listen close; don't move; don't miss this! Christ is in heaven today, preparing the New Jerusalem.

Just as God created the earth in six days- made the earth in six days (or six thousand years).... They said, “Be not ignorant.” We read in the Scripture, one thousand years is one day. And Christ is gone and is preparing a place (that's been on it's construction for many, many thousands of years)- preparing a place. “And if I go and prepare a place, I will come again, and receive you, that wherever I am, there you may be also.” Notice, the Redeemer and the redeemed.

  The Scripture Saith...

And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there were no more sea.

And I John saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
