16: The New Heavens and the New Earth

"According to God's promise, we look for new heavens and a new earth, where righteousness will dwell and reign forever" (2 Peter 3:13; Revelation 21, 22).

Importance of this doctrine: In the midst of our daily struggles and difficulties we are encouraged by the promise of what God has prepared for His faithful followers. Jesus told His disciples, and made the promise to all generations of Christians, "I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me" (John 14:2-3).

After the Millennium (1,000 year period), all Christians will dwell forever with God and have access to a beautiful, restored universe. This doctrine is important because it assures us of our future abode in a world far better than this one.
