Eternal Perspectives

God will one day change our bodies and make them fit for our souls, and then he will change this world itself. It is no speculation to say that we look for new heavens and a New Earth where righteousness dwells, and that there will come a time when “the lion shall eat straw like the ox” and “the leopard shall lie down with the young goat” (Isaiah 11:6-7).

We expect to see this world that is now so full of sin to be turned into a paradise, a garden of God. We believe that the Tabernacle of God will be among men, that he will dwell among them and they shall see his face, and his name shall be on their foreheads. We expect to see the New Jerusalem descend out of Heaven from God.

In this very place, where sin has triumphed, we expect that grace will much more abound.

~ Charles Spurgeon, “Creation’s Groans and the Saints’ Sighs,” [Sermon 788]
