Behold I will create new heavens and a new earth. The former things will not be remembered, nor will they come to mind. But be glad and rejoice forever in what I will create, for I will create Jerusalem to be a delight and its people a joy.
(Read also, Rev. 21:1-4) Currently, we live in a fallen creation, with a generation of sinners. Righteousness is only found in Christ, and when we embrace Him, we are able to live a righteous life by His grace and power, though still living in an unrighteous land. When we come to dwell in the new heavens and the new earth, which are the home of righteousness, the original Greek says, “that will be a place of whatever conforms to the revealed Word of God, a place where the sum total of the requirements of God are lived out continuously”. Won’t it be amazing : no struggle against sin, only righteousness and the light of God surrounding us.
