Our new earth, which we inherit. . . .
So far, from my studies . . . this is what I expect:
First and foremost the love of God will be in and through us, perfectly. We will adore Him every moment no matter what we are doing. Gone will be the fallen self-centered drives and ambition, wants and needs. Left will be only the desire to please Him, worship and it will be joyful.
The world will be exquisitely, awesomely beautiful. What Adam failed to do, we will do. We take dominion over the earth, over the creatures, over the resources. And all the wonderful creatures will likewise be in a state of glory, peace, unity. . . .
Music, poetry, writing, performing, building . . . will go on. There will be get togethers, "family" feasts . . . outings to explore His creation both on planet and off. Who knows what wondrous new creatures and creations He will provide through the endless ages that we will interact with and be able to study. Fantastic structures, buildings, domiciles we will inhabit, with no fear of thieves or vandals.
All the longings of the heart, which He provides, will be able to be pursued and satisfied, without devious competition, but with a playful sporting joy, as each lovingly tries to outdo another in creating works that express His glory, His eternal character. . . .
Sacred science, with no violence in it, but borne of holy curiosity will be unleashed and endlessly drawn . . . inventions, technology, experiments providing unceasing fascination and pleasure in what He provides. . . .
Love will abound. Peace, joy, humor, beauty, power, grace, one to another and with the angels and other heavenly creatures He sets with and before us. . . .
And these are just the things we can somewhat imagine. Then there will be MORE!..... things which "neither eye nor ear" can imagine, so fantastic, so magnificent, beyond our present comprehension--those things He has prepared . . . to bless and enliven and bestow upon His children! What will those things be? Well, we are able to presently imagine quite a bit that would be stupendous, mind-blowing . . . and it will be BEYOND that!
As we continue to race the race . . . consider just how much we have to look forward to! What a good, merciful, incredible, amazing God we have! We--who deserve none of it--will revel in His vast, unending glory!
