"Timeless" Truth #98 - by Ben Brown

Looking ahead - This installment of TT is being written on Edisto Island, off the coast of South Carolina. It is a very different place compared to Cape Cod where I spent much of my life. Yet it has many similar characteristics where ocean meets land. The ocean in SC follows the same laws of physics that the Creator set up initially. That’s one of the things I love about God, His consistency, He never varies.

 

I dream sometimes like this morning. I think about the new heavens and the new earth and wonder what new kind of physics God will come up with, because He promises a totally new kind of experience. Jesus already demonstrated a bit of that following His resurrection. Paul writes and quotes Isaiah;

“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” I Corinthians 2:9

Yes, things will be vastly different in the new heavens and the new earth. One intriguing thought is that there will be no more sun because it will be illuminated by God’s glory. Think of the sun that currently supports life as we know it through its amazing design, a design so complex we barely understand. One thing is clear from the studies thus far, and that is that the sun cannot be billions of years old as the evolutionists would have us believe.

John writes in Revelation after being allowed to see the new heaven that the gates will be open all the time and the nations of believers will freely go in and out. The exception to access is for those whose name is not written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. Either Jesus has noted that you are a follower of His, or has not included your name due to your non-belief. So, the real issue is, will you be there? I pray that you will make the right decision.

                Blessings,

                                                Ben
