MATTHEW 5:18_Till heaven and earth pass…
Do you believe there will be an end to the world? Does that mean an end of time? If the world ends, will time continue? If time does not continue, can there be an eternity?
The apostle John brings an end to the present heaven and earth in his book, The Revelation, the final book in the Bible. In it he refers to a new heaven and a new earth. Revelation 21:1 (KJV), “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.” When there is no more earth, the sea shall also have passed away. It may seem easier to understand the destruction of the earth than the heaven, but this is not the heaven of heavens (I Kings 8:27 KJV).
Jesus made His statement in this verse long before John wrote The Revelation. Jesus knew the current world as we know it would have an end.
The laws God gave to Moses belong to this life. Jesus has already declared He will not destroy the laws, but be their fulfillment. What Jesus says next makes it clear that the Law is not going anywhere as long as we are living in this life.
Lord Jesus, Thank You that You will bring a new heaven and a new earth. In the powerful name of Jesus, Amen.
Christ knows this life will cease—He offers me new life!
