πŸ’‘πŸ‘‘ Will the Earth Be Destroyed?

…the earth…shall be burned up…all these things shall be dissolved…” (2 Pet. 3:10,11).

Paul uses that same word “dissolved” to describe the dissolution of our physical bodies when we die, saying, “if our earthly house of this tabernacle wereΒ dissolved, we have a building of God…eternal in the heavens” (2 Cor. 5:1). When our bodies die, they dissolve. Ecclesiastes 12:7 says, “then shall the dust return to the earth.”

Yet in speaking about the day of his resurrection (Job 19:25), Job wrote, “inΒ myΒ flesh shall I see God:Β whom I shall see for myself, andΒ mineΒ eyes shall behold,Β and not another” (Job 19:26,27). That means that the physical bodies we have now are the same ones we’ll have for all eternity, even though the Bible says they are “dissolved” at death. Our bodies will be madeΒ new, but Job says they will be the same flesh.

So when Peter uses that same word to say thatΒ the worldΒ will be “dissolved,” I have to think that the same thing applies to the earth. It will be aΒ newΒ earth, a much moreΒ gloriousΒ earth, but it will still be theΒ sameΒ earth.

Similarly, in Rev. 21:5, the Lord doesn’t say ‘I make all new things’…but ‘I make all things new.’ That’s a world of difference! source
