This passage was brought to my attention recently.
2 Peter 3:10
But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.
Interesting phrase: the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.
Let’s back up. The day of the Lord means when Christ comes again, end of the world kind of thing. We say it’s like a thief because we don’t know when it’s happening. I think that next part means the heavens as we know them won’t be the same. (This part could take a lot of pondering. - But not my point.)
But interestingly enough the earth all and that was done there isn’t what gets burned up or dissolved. It’s exposed. What for? Why would it remain? The only thing I can think of is to show off God’s glory!
Bob Dylan once said, “Strengthen the things that remain.”
It goes back to my thought that whatever is done here for God's Name, His purposes will be here in the New Earth shouting to His glory for all eternity!
More fuel for my desire to go - strengthen the things that remain.
