For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind. But be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy.
Isaiah 65:17-18 (KJV)
The new creation begins for us the moment we are in Christ. God wants to shape the new heaven and the new earth in and through the hearts of every born again believer. We participate in this continual process as we daily let go of the old, and receive by faith the newness of life that is in Christ Jesus. We then find ourselves filled with a peace and a joy that is independent of the circumstances and conditions of this world, and we become the much needed instruments through which God can bring healing, deliverance and salvation into the world.
