In Isaiah 65:17, God says, “For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.”
What a fascinating verse! One day God is going to create a new earth. When He does, we will not remember the old one at all. It will not even come into our minds that there used to be a different earth. Oh, how wonderful that will be! I have had many good experiences in life, but there are many things about life on this earth that I have no wish to remember.
Revelation 21:4 says that one day, “God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.” All the things that we are afraid of on this earth, all the death and sorrow and pain, all will be gone. They will be passed away. We will not even remember them anymore. God Himself will be with us, and He will be our God, and He will make all things new; for He is “Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end.” (See verse 6)
