The good news - in all this 'doom and gloom' - is that we are in the process of transitioning to a New Earth. People have had dreams of Earth being restored to a former paradise.
Did you know that the bible does speak of a New Earth? It comes after the life on this Earth - comes to an end. Satan has had much power on this Earth - it's the reason everything is so INSANE! Why would such an evil entity be given so much destructive power? Our roots are from Heaven. We have known a perfect Paradise before. We were sent to a faraway land to experience 'duality'. If it really were harmonious all the time, it would have been boring. Now we're all on a crazy ride.
The ride is coming to an end, and so is the crunchtime. A time to make choices. Do we choose 'good' or 'evil'? Do we choose our Creator? Or reject Him? Our Creator wants to know who will choose Him and who will reject Him. It's the whole reason we're here. We all desire Paradise - an eternal holiday where we can live our lives in peace, along with everything else we dream of. But it's our choices that will determine our fate.
Revelation 20:1-3 And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain. He seized the devil and bound him for a thousand years. He threw him into the Abyss and locked and sealed it over him, to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore until the thousand years were ended.
Isaiah 65:17 Behold I will create new heavens and a new earth. The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind. 19. I will rejoice over Jerusalem and take delight in my people; the sound of weeping and of crying will be heard in it no more.
Never again will there be in it an infant who lives but a few days, or an old man who does not live out his years; he; he who dies at a hundred will be thought a mere youth. 22 No longer will they build houses and others live in them, or plant and others eat. For as the days of a tree, so will be the days of my people; my chosen ones will long enjoy the works of their hands.
They will not toil in vain or bear children doomed to misfortune; for they will be a people blessed by the Lord, they and their descendants with them.
Revelations 21:1-4 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying "Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mouring or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."
So there it is! A brand new start, a clean slate, the chance to build our own houses, vineyards, gardens. No more death, no more suffering, no more pain! And no memory of the madness we are all going through now.
What great news that is!
