Promise from, 2 Peter 3:11-13

"Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming. That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat. But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, the home of righteousness."


God's purpose for all people is not destruction, but re-creation (Isiah 66:22 and Revelation 21:22). God will purify the heavens and earth with fire; then he will create them anew. We can joyously look forward to the new earth, God's good world!
