The True Climate Change

The New Heaven and New Earth

Book of Revelation Chapter 21 through Chapter 22 Verses 1-5

When will there be a New Heaven and a New Earth?

After Death and Hell are cast into the Burning Lake of Fire!

Rev 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.

It is a true statement that if you love the Lord Jesus Christ you will die once and live twice the second life for eternity.

If we love the Lord Jesus Christ, we will not see a second death!

The key to these things is that your name must be written down in the Lamb’s Book of Life!

Rev 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

The New Heaven and the New Earth are only for those who have their name written down in the Lamb’s Book of Life and there will exist no other place for life to exist!

There are some prayers we need to pray.

Our first prayer must be for our salvation!

Rom 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

Rom 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

We must also pray for the Second Coming of the Lord, but this must be with a clear conscience.

Mat 6:10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

We are to pray for the Kingdom of our Lord Jesus to come.

Psa 122:6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.

We are to pray for the peace of Jerusalem knowing that there will be no true peace in Jerusalem until the Lord Jesus returns.

Joh 17:20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;
Joh 17:21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.

If we are like Christ, then we need to pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ.

And last but not least, we need to pray for the Lost.

Certainly, we need to stay in constant contact with our Father in Heaven, but in all our prayers we need to include prayer for all these things!

As we wind down our study of the Book of Revelation, we know that the Lord has returned and shown His wrath against the Apostate world of Satan and it has been destroyed.

If fact, all this world has been destroyed, but then remade for 1000 years and this time has now passed.

All those who will spend eternity with the Lord have been decided and we get to that part where the Bibles says “I make all things new”

*Rev 21:1 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.

We should clearly understand this is not life as we understand it, reaching its ultimate climax, it is not!

What we are reading it about a new and eternal state of all those who have decided by choice to be with our Creator!

We should also understand that those who have gone on before did go to the New Heaven.

Jesus said, “I go to prepare a place for you”!

These are things that John was an eyewitness to!

A New Heaven:

1) Not only the lowest heaven. Not only the entire solar system. Also a new Heaven of heavens.
Not a remade earth for it still contains the Burning Lake of Fire that will burn forever but an entirely new earth.

There will be no more Sea. This is the salt water we call the Oceans.

We should understand the purpose of the oceans.

Our oceans have been removing the impurities of life for many years but because there will be no impurities the waters will never again turn salty.

Just as in the time of Elijah and King Ahab where fire came down from Heaven and licked up all the water, those Seas that had turned to blood will no longer exist! Those freshwater places that turned to blood will no longer exist!

The water for the earth will flow out from God’s Temple and will never be salty again!

Rev 22:1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
Rev 22:2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

We should pay close attention to the plans the Lord has for us. A new home. The old earth was never our intended home!

Our Savior is very happy that this new world has finally come, to be presented to those who love Him!

*Rev 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

Different ones had spoken to John during this time. Different ones had pointed out some things to John during this time.

John saw these things with his own eyes!

Since creation, the Almighty God has had this desire to live amongst those who love Him.

He spent some time walking with Adam in the cool of the day, but Jehovah could not live on this created earth in the time of Adam because He is all knowing and He knew that through Adam the sin nature to all mankind would begin.

Now since all this is in the past, God presents a new home to those who will be with Him forever and forever.

Corruption no longer will exist.

There is a new city of God. A holy city. A righteous city. A city that in itself would manifest God’s Glory!

From verse 9 through verse 21 will describe this beautiful city of God.

If your name is written down in the Lamb’s Book of Life, his or her name is stored in this New Jerusalem.

Rev 3:12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.
Rev 3:13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

There is not one blemish upon this new city, it is wholly new.

It does not belong to this world.
It does not belong to the Millennial Kingdom.
It does belong to Eternity.

Nothing on this earth we live upon now, was destined for eternity except the Church, the Bride of Christ, each and every true believer!

This is the city that Abraham had a desire to see for he knew God’s plan.

Heb 11:8 By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.
Heb 11:9 By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:
Heb 11:10 For he looked for a city which hath foundations, whose builder and maker is God.

It is here where our loved ones have been since God called them home.

2Co 5:1 For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
2Co 5:2 For in this we groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with our house which is from heaven:
2Co 5:3 If so be that being clothed we shall not be found naked.

It is here where the Lord has built our own Heavenly home.

Joh 14:1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
Joh 14:2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
Joh 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
Joh 14:4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

And Oh, the voice of our God will be there!

*Rev 21:3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

How will God fulfill His covenant we are reading it right now.

Joh 14:23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

He lives within each believer now and He will live with us then in the New Jerusalem.

2Co 6:18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

The dwelling place of God will then be with us!

The tabernacle of God is this beautiful created place where He will live with us throughout eternity and nothing will exist outside of His tabernacle.

*Rev 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

There will be no Sea.
There will be no tears, wiped away with the loving hand of God.
There will be no death.
There will be no sorrow.
There will be no pain.
There will be no murderers.
There will be no adulterers.
There will be no idolaters.
There will be no liars so there can be no politicians.
And most of all there will be no sin!

All things of the old way of doing things will be gone!

There will be a brand new, world!

*Rev 21:5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.

We have been through much in this wonderful book, but notice one thing here.

These words come directly from that person sitting upon the throne of God!

Notice next that this same person who is sitting upon the throne of God says that all these things John has given to us are true and faithful to the fulfilling of God’s promises.

No need to comment here the Lord God Almighty has spoken!

Who is this person? God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Ghost.

*Rev 21:5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
Rev 21:6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
Rev 21:7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

Listen as John witnessed with his own eyes, the new City of Jerusalem and tells us who will reside there.

*Rev 21:22 And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.

We immediately see there will be no building to enter into to worship.

We will be in the presence of the Lord God Almighty and no other place of worship will be necessary!

A temple is a place set apart for the worship of a deity, a god.

The Lord God Jehovah is that Temple!

In my opinion, the New Heaven in itself is also the New Jerusalem.

What did verse 2 teach us?

Rev 21:3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

You see, Heaven is where the Lord is!

We must think of Heaven in relation to our worldly minds.

We must just listen to what the Lord has told John to write with the Lord Himself saying these things are true!

These other Scriptures will explain themselves.

*Rev 21:23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.

The glory of the Lord our God will be all the light we need and with the light of the Lamb there can be no darkness at all.

*Rev 21:24 And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.

All those who are saved of the nations during the Tribulation will have the freedom to go in and out of this great city.

This confirms that “whosoever” calls upon the Lord can be saved.

Rom 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

It is not as Calvinism dictates!

It is not as the Jehovah’s Witness teach!

Who are these kings of the earth?

Rev 1:6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
Rev 5:10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

There will be no need to shut the gates of the city at any time!

*Rev 21:25 And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.

We already know that Heaven will be one everlasting day as time will no longer exist!

The citizens of New Jerusalem will have constant, unbroken access to our God who is also our Father!

Just as we do now through our prayers, but then in person.

As kings and priests, what will we bring with us when we come to New Jerusalem?

*Rev 21:26 And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.

When we come into the city, we will bring greater dignity to it and greater honor because we will carry with us the glory and honor of the Lord wherever we go!

Before you enter into New Jerusalem, Heaven, the New Heaven, your name must be written down in the Lamb’s Book of Life!

*Rev 21:27 And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

All those who do not have their names in the Lamb’s Book of Life are nowhere near New Jerusalem. They are in perdition, the place of the lost soul!

Rev 21:8 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.

If you see somethings of beauty here on earth, they are not perfect enough to be in New Jerusalem. Heaven!

In fact just listen to what God the Holy Spirit says.

Remember also there are no Seas but there will be water. Pure clear, healing waters. A river of life!

Listen as the Holy Spirit continues to describe the New Jerusalem, which I believe to be the New Heaven.

*Rev 22:1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.

Water is one of the necessities of life!

The truth of God is that He is the source of all life!

Psa 36:9 For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light.

Joh 5:26 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;

Apart from the Holy Trinity, everyone else just has a derived life that comes by our God, the Lord Jesus Christ!

We are all dependent upon the Lord Jesus Christ for our life!

Life does not exist in its own right!

Life is not spoken of as being created!

Life exist because we have a Savior!

Jesus gave life to those who are born into this world.

Jesus gives eternal life to those who love Him.

Joh 3:15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

Joh 4:14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.

Joh 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

Joh 20:31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.

Jesus has given us this life, and now we are prepared for a more abundant life.

Joh 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

It will be a resurrected life!

Joh 11:25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

There is only one way to obtain this resurrected life.

1Jn 5:11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
1Jn 5:12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
1Jn 5:13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

Knowing all these things, lets now look at our Scripture.

Just think, a river that is pure and uncontaminated and it will remain that way forever.

There is no reason to believe that these words are not just as they are written!

Life comes by our Creator. The Lord did not have to create life because all life comes by Him.

It is not so hard for me to believe, that when I am in Heaven and feel a little tired, I need only walk down to the River of Life to be refreshed.

It is not so hard for me to believe that if I see a blemish of old age, I need only walk down to the River of Life and be made young again.

If it flows from the Throne of God, then it must be life because our Lord is all about life.

I pity those who reject the Heavenly life that comes from accepting my Savior as the way, the truth, and the life!

But this is not all.

*Rev 22:2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.

Not only water of life, but also the trees of life. It says tree as in one, but it says on both sides of the River of Life.

Twelve different fruits.

New fruit every month.

Even the leaves can be used for healing.

I can just imagine how great it will be to stop by God’s throne and my life be extended throughout eternity.

Paradise will truly be a paradise!

Again why would we believe these things will not be actual just as they are written?

This is the same tree of life that Adam could have eaten from forever, but he chose to follow Eve in her sin.

Gen 3:22 And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:
Gen 3:23 Therefore the LORD God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken.
Gen 3:24 So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.

There was nothing good about the “Tree of Good and Evil”!

When we treat the commandments of God like they are suggestions we will suffer every time!

We must have that change in attitude before we can accept the truth!

1Jn 3:1 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
1Jn 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.
1Jn 3:3 And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.

We will eat of the tree of life in New Jerusalem and the nations will use the leaves of the Tree of Life for healing.

The Lord God of life has lifted His curse!

*Rev 22:3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:
Rev 22:4 And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.

One hundred ninety-nine times, in the Scriptures does the Holy Spirit use the word “curse” in its many fashions. (curse, cursed, curses, cursing)

When we see there will no more curse then this means there can be nothing but blessings!

What has the Lord taught us all along?

Rom 12:14 Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.

We know that it was the sin of Adam that brought the first curse and sin has reigned unto death up until the time of Jesus Christ.

Rom 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Rom 5:21 That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.

In the New Heaven and New Jerusalem there will be no sin! Without sin then we can live amongst the Throne of God and with the Lamb of God.

We may have more than one job, but the key job is to worship our God and our Savior!

There is no greater honor than to sit at the feet of Jesus!

Rev 7:15 Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.

Moses could only see the hinder parts of Jehovah God, but we will be able to see His wonderful face.

Even today, most prayers ask for the arm of God, when we should be asking for the face of God!

Psa 50:2 Out of Zion, the perfection of beauty, God hath shined.

Psa 90:17 And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it.

We will have the mind of Christ and the only thing on our minds will be pleasing our God!

Mat 5:8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

Rom 6:17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.

Eph 6:6 Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart;

A pure heart will have the mind of Christ.

*Rev 22:5 And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.

As we live out our lives upon this earth, we are limited by time.

Every tick of the clock causes us to age toward the end of our days upon this earth.

We are up awhile then we have to rest for a while.

These things are not so in Heaven!

There will be no darkness which also means there will be no sin.

There will be no night because we will need no rest.

Everything that the saints have suffered will work for them an eternal weight of glory.

2Co 4:17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;

We will be engulfed in the Glory of God and it will be marvelous.

We will go with the Lord wherever He goes.

We will reign with Him for ever and for ever!
