Nothing lasts for ever!

We often say things like 'nothing lasts for ever' or 'all good things will come to an end one day'. 

Did you know that Jesus Christ said that 'heaven and earth will pass away' He predicted the end of this universe as we know it. 

Scientists tell us that the second law of thermodynamics means that everything is degenerating. The Bible in other places, Isaiah 51, Hebrews 1, 2 Peter 3, states that this universe will end one day. 

So what then? The Bible also states that God will create a new heaven and a new earth, 2 Peter 3, Revelation 21:1, Isaiah 66:22. There will however be a major difference to the present world. It will be a righteous place. All that is right will feel at home and be welcome in this new heaven and earth. Utopia indeed. This is guaranteed to happen (but we are not told when) because the Lord Jesus Christ came into this sinful world, dealt with consequences of sin by his death on the cross and rose again on the third day.

Where would you rather live? This sad and sinful world or in the new one where everything is right. You can be there courtesy of the Lord Jesus if you come to Him admitting and confessing your guilt before God and requesting forgiveness through faith in Christ.

The Bible says 'Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners'

The Bible says 'He that believes on the Son has everlasting life'
