It Was a Cruel, Cruel World: Death and Life Before and After the Fall (Part 40)


The special revelation from the Bible suggests one last purpose for the universe.

· God made this universe to prepare and train us for what lies ahead (Rev. 21:3).

                                                                       Hugh Ross, Why The Universe Is The Way It Is

One day God’s redemptive purpose will be completed and this universe will be replaced with a better one. As the apostle John states,

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away…

                                                                                                                                      Revelation 21:1 (ESV)

This new creation will be radically different from this universe in that “death shall be no more” and that the “former things have passed away” (Rev. 21:4).
