What’s going to happen to the Earth?

Swoosh-FlowersI had always supposed that one day the Earth would be blown up, much like Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the whole planet would be blown to smithereens. So I got out Mr. Strong’s concordance, and set it next to the book of Revelation. Well ok, I cheated a little; Mr. Strong’s is now electronic.

I was combing through the info, trying to find a place where it says basically, “Man blows up the planet in with big fire.”   I still haven’t found it. If it’s there, please let me know.  I’m still looking.

[One minor comment on scripture at this point: If it seems that two scriptures are contradicting one another, it’s usually because we need to back up, and see the bigger picture. It’s kind of how two witnesses to a car accident can have vastly different stories, but both of them true.]

Before the “final ending” of the Earth, we know that there will be earthquakes, war, scorching from the sun, rivers dried up, and more war.

With this in mind, I set out to find the exact place where it says the Earth is no more.

“Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. And there was found no place for them.” Rev. 20:11   This scripture sounds to me like the Earth will just vanish away at the appointed time, because the Earth can’t take the Glory of God’s face. The Earth will be retched by then.

Verse 13 says, “The sea gave up the dead who were in it…”  I was surprised to read that the sea was separate from the Earth. There is a different significance to the sea.

Then, Chapter 21:1  says, “Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away,. Also there was no more sea.”

Again, the sea gets a separate mention. I don’t know why yet.

I’m really curious now.

  1. It’s good to be curious and pursue further knowledge in Scripture. With many things, though, we do best to be “stewards of the mysteries of God.” The Holy Spirit moves us to marvel at the mysteries rather than piece together the puzzle.
