Pamphlet 1784 Plan of God kc 5-2

So the Word of God says that He destroyed this earth before (the 1st heaven and earth age of Gen. 1:1) and He'll do it again.

Scoffers are totally ignorant of this fact.

Even most Christians are blind to it, but the Word of God declares it.

2 Pet. 3:8
But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
One day to us is as a thousand years to the Lord, so things seem to happen rather slowly as we perceive things.


[9] The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
Our Father is very patient because He does not want any of His children to suffer the same judgment as Satan.

It is His desire that all come to repentance, but unfortunately there will still be some who will refuse.

[10] But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
The word "elements" means "rudiments", not physical elements.

The day of the Lord will come as a surprise to all the willingly ignorant and spiritually blind!

And you know what?

Since there is "nothing new under the sun" you can be sure that many in that first earth age didn't think our Father would actually destroy everything then either.

History repeats itself, even from that first earth age!

This heaven and earth age will PASS AWAY!


[11] Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,

[12] Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

This earth age, this SECOND earth age, the heavens and the earth which are NOW, are going to pass away with the coming of the Consuming Fire, who is our Father!

Hebrews 12:29 "For our God is a consuming fire."

And the THIRD heaven and earth age, the time of eternal peace that we all look forward to, will be ushered in just as He promised!

[13] Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals.
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.

1 Corinthians 10:11 Now all these things happened unto them {the ancient Israelites} for ensamples, and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.
