Only the Christian church in the midst of all the world religions is able to proclaim the Bible’s good news that God, the Creator and Redeemer, will bring a new order into being!
Indeed, it is the only good news available to a fallen race today—the news that God has promised a new order that is to be of eternal duration and infused with eternal life.
It is a promise from God of a new order to be based upon the qualities which are the exact opposite of man’s universal blight—temporality and mortality!
God promises the qualities of perfection and eternity which cannot now be found in mankind anywhere on this earth.
What a prospect!
We are instructed that this new order, at God’s bidding, will finally show itself in the new heaven and the new earth. It will show itself in the city that is to come down as a bride adorned for her husband.
The Word of God tells us that all of this provision for the redeemed has the quality of eternal duration.
It is not going to come just to go again.
It is not to be temporal.
It is a new order that will come to stay.
It is not going to come subject to death.
It is not to be mortal.
It is a new order that will come to live and remain forever!
