Will this planet be the new earth after the second coming of Jesus?

Scripture: Revelation 21:1-4
Will this planet be the new earth after the second coming of Jesus? Yes, God's original plan for our world was corrupted by the devil. God says that He will make a new heavens and a new earth for us. After living with Christ in heaven for 1,000 years Revelation says that the city of God, the New Jerusalem, will come down to our earth and all things will be made like they were before sin touched our planet.

Caller:  Hi.  Will this be the new earth after the earth is cleaned with fire, or will there be another new earth?  You know what I mean.

Pastor Doug:  Yes I think I know what you mean.  God had an original plan, Jewel, when He made this planet.  And the plan has been corrupted, perverted and polluted by the devil.

But the devil is not going to confound God’s plan.  God is going to purify this planet.  And He’s going to create a new heavens – that means a new atmosphere – and a new earth.  And He’s going to take this same world and re-create it because, the Bible says, ‘Blessed are the meek.  They will inherit the earth,’ meaning we will eventually inherit the earth.

Furthermore Christ said, ‘I go to prepare a place for you.’  He’s gone to get those mansions.  ‘When I come again, I will receive you unto Myself.’  We’re caught up to meet the Lord in the air.  You’ll spend a millennium in Heaven, living and reigning with Christ.  Then Revelation chapter 21 says at the conclusion of that millennium, ‘I saw the New Jerusalem coming down from Heaven,’ to this planet of course.

Caller:  Which New Jerusalem is this?

Pastor Doug:  That’s the City of God, where He’s built the mansions.

Caller:  Ok.

Pastor Doug:  There’ll be no ozone depletion, no green house effect in that new earth and that’s why it says, ‘a new heavens.’

Caller:  Ok.  Thank you.
