“The Day of God”
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, where righteousness dwells. So then, dear friends, since you are looking forward to this, make every effort to be found spotless, blameless and at peace with Him. 2 Peter 3:11-14
The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare, (v. 10). This is a description of the destruction of everything within the celestial and earthly realms. It is a picture of what will take place at the very end of the ages.
The Apostle Peter asks the question: “What kind of people ought you to be?” We, who are TRUE BELIVERS, BLOOD BOUGHT, REDEEMED, CHILDREN of the LIVING GOD, should live HOLY and GODLY lives, and work hard at being found SPOTLESS, BLAMELESS and at PEACE with God, which will be a STRONG EVIDENCE or WITNESS, to those who are lost in their sins, and that it may bring them to a SAVING KNOWLEDGE of their NEED for the SALVATION of their souls, which will speed the coming of the DAY of GOD. This is His desire; that NOBODY perish, but that ALL would come to Him for their SALVATION.
What will happen to the environment as we know it. The Bible says, The Day of God will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat. In other words, it will be scourged by fire, but take heart, God will KEEP His promise and will create a NEW HEAVEN and a NEW EARTH, a place where RIGHTEOUSNESS will dwell. A place that is COMPLETELY VOID of sin, corruption, depravity, hatred, agony, despair, heartache, torture, torment, and pain, all the attributes of a place called HELL. The abode of those who have NOT given their HEART and LIFE to God, but have REJECTED His gift of SALVATION and have lived their lives in rebellion and sin against God.
However, He is giving you the opportunity NOW, to TURN AWAY from your sinfulness and come to Him with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to Him, and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and become a TRUE BELIEVER, who is looking forward to the Day of God, and a NEW HEAVEN and a NEW EARTH. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
