A “Literal” New Earth – What’s Going to Happen to The Old One?

 

CLEANING EARTH WITH A BROOM literal new earth

A Literal “New” Earth
What’s Going to Happen to the Old One?

God’s Perspective

With God being so particular about cleanliness, 
we can see why he is also particular 
about the foundations of His “New Earth”.

JEHOVAH GOD HAS CREATED A NEW EARTH WHERE JOY AND PEACE WILL ABOUND

Spiritual Cleanliness

Bible readers can recall how Jehovah required
Moses to take off his sandals before stepping
on Holy Ground – in the case of the burning 
bush and when he ascended Mount Horeb.
(Exodus 3:5)

We will also be stepping upon “Holy” ground,
when we first step onto the “New Earth” of
God’s making.  It will be a pure and pristine
planet – exactly like the one that Adam and
Eve had enjoyed in the beginning.

A New Earth
Has Been Created

A New Earth’s been created 
and is ready to replace 
the cancered one we live in
our habitat disgrace

For God above decided 
that a new one was the best 
for this Old Earth needs too much work 
to straighten out this mess

Although He has the power
to change and clean our Globe 
It never was His plan to 
As scriptures have foretold

A seamstress will quickly tell you 
Tis easier to make 
A brand new shiney garment 
than to alter or to take

An old and shabby frame work 
that no longer fits the time
and try to change, erase and plane
and wipe away the grime

The rust and rot of metal 
upon a junk yard car 
can teach us all a lesson 
when we’ve taken it too far

Too far to give good reason 
to spend our precious cash 
installing all new fixtures 
a huge transforming task

Jehovah doesn’t justify
the things he plans to do 
But knowing His good reasons
He shares His Godly view

For When you take a real good look
at the State our Planet’s in
We see in our ecology 
the ravages of sin

Mankind’s greed for more and more
with thoughtless – “I don’t care” 
contaminates all we touch,
the land, the sea,  and air

Our chemical spills, and poisoned dumps
Our garbage and our grease 
Our factories belch darkened soot 
Our myriad cars release

the smoke and fuels that foul the air
and kill the birds that Fly 
We drink vile water from the ground
causing cancer – so we die

This earth’s no longer stable 
the cushion for the plates 
have been siphoned for our vehicles 
disheveling earthly grates

Yes, the oily petro buffer 
that supported shelves within 
was pumped and drained – leaving just a frame 
causing earthquakes to begin

The picture can’t be painted 
any grimmer than it is 
How thankful our creator 
cares just how mankind lives

For He has made a New Earth
which will replace the old
A promise that He’s written
by the prophets, He foretold

After He has finished
Burning up this mess
The New Earth will be given
to those whom God will bless

The meek and mild tempered
will take their favored place
upon an earth just like the first
before the cursed mistake

I know you can just see it
in the joy of your mind’s eye
the perfect land, from God’s own hand
that Jehovah will supply

Why did God created a New Earth ?

Couldn’t he just clean up the Old One ?

God’s Viewpoint

The Old Earth – it Offends me
In every single way
It stinks to highest heaven
more rancid every day

I see the many sinners
who defy me and my rules
I see the many years of greed
I see the many fools

Who plunder and betray you
who steal and cheat and lie
I see the butchered people
I see them with my eye

Although I don’t have tear ducts
nor lids of skin as you
I feel the pain of acid rain
I feel the poisoned dew

Each inch of earthly soil
cries to me aloud
for all the blood it’s holding
that fell from murder’s cloud

The buildings hold their secrets
of Lust and savage rape
and every town and every wall
holds horrors at their gate

But I see all the detail
of sin and mankind’s gore
I see each bludgeoned lover
as graves cry out for more

I see the pregnant mother
as she kills her infant life
the bursting of each fetus
torn by abortion’s knife

I see the false defenders
the courts who back the lie
justice for the killer
yes, I see them with my eye

I see the world uncovered
the drugs that ruin man
I see the addict’s demon
that leads him by the hand

I see the ruination
of the earth that once was pure
It reeks of degradation
There is no magic cure

I hate the high rise towers
I hate what man has done
I hate the concrete pavement
I hate the sickened slum

I hate the place of worship
where man has worshipped wrong
I hate the statues of their saints
I hate their pagan song

The cross of pure defiance
They thrust into my face
Atop their heightened steeples
their fortress of disgrace

For nothing that has happened
has gone unseen by me
every thing upon the earth
has plagued my revery

I hate the earth for it contains
the memories of man’s past
each place I turn, I can discern
the smell of poisoned gas

I will not start the New World
with the raunch of old Earth’s grime
I won’t allow my chosen ones
to have memories of a time

When Life was so bad for them
and they cried to me in grief
I want nothing to remind them
so they can have relief

For if I left the old earth
they’d be haunted with the sight
of all the things that memories bring
in the terror dreams of night

“Pay close attention now: 
I’m creating …. a NEW EARTH.
All the earlier troubles, chaos, and pain 
are things of the past, to be forgotten.”
(Isaiah 65:17)(MSG)-BibleGateway

“Forget what happened long ago! 
Don’t think about the past. 
I am creating something new. 
There it is! Do you see it?…. “
(Isaiah 43:18,19)(CEV)-BibleGateway

“Behold, the former things
 have come to pass,
Now I declare new things;
Before they spring forth 
I proclaim them to you.” 
(Isaiah 42:9)(NASB)-BibleGateway

But forget all that–it is nothing 
compared to what I am going to do. 
For I am about to do a brand-new thing. 
See, I have already begun! 
Do you not see it?….”
(Isaiah 43:18,19)(NLT)-BibleGateway

Jehovah knew in Advance
that he would have to Create
“A New Earth”

Jehovah’s Viewpoint

I knew I would replace the earth
I knew it in advance
I knew mankind would ruin it
If given half a chance

Way back in the beginning
when Adam rejected me
I knew I’d have to give man room
for him to finally see

That life apart from my kind hand
would bring him pain and grief
and that mankind would need some help
only “I” could bring relief

After Eden’s vast destruction
I took steps to prepare
another planet that would replace
the earth and all its fare

I’ve made this NEW EARTH identical
in every single way
to the one that you now live on
to the one where you now stay

Except without the squalor
without the stench of blood
for it will full resemble
the earth before the Flood

You’ll see there’ll be No oceans
but only streams and lakes
and rivers full of blessings
for this is all t’will take

To make your lives pure pleasure
be joyful through and through
you’ll find all you could hope for
in the Earth I’ve made for you

I have my plans to move you
onto this planet Great
at the end of Armageddon
but before I disintegrate

The old and cancered global waste
that My son will burn away
cremating all the memories
and the nightmare of decay

I’ll be there to guide and help you
as you adjust to change
your life will be much different
and never be the same

For the NEW EARTH, that I bring you
Is a gift from my own hand
I will place you soon upon it
your eternal promised land

“…‘Jehovah YOUR God 
has given YOU this land 
to take possession of it’….”
(Deuteronomy 3:18) (NWT)

“But just as it is written: 
“Eye has not seen and ear has 
not heard, neither have there 
been conceived in the heart of man 
the things that God has prepared 
for those who love him.” 
For it is to us God has revealed 
them through his spirit, 
for the spirit searches 
into all things, even the deep 
things of God.” 
(1Corinthians 2:9,10) (NWT)

“….I will tell you the future 
before it happens.” 
(Isaiah 42:9)(NLT)-BibleGateway

“Only – “I” – can tell you 
what is going to happen 
even before it happens. 
Everything I plan will come to pass, 
for I do whatever I wish.” 
(Isaiah 46:10)(NLT)-BibleGateway

“You have heard; look at all this.
And you, will you not declare it?
I proclaim to you new things from 
this time, Even hidden things which
 you have not known.”
(Isaiah 48:6)(NASB)-BibleGateway

“Remember the first things 
of a long time ago, 
that I am the Divine One 
and there is no other God, 
nor anyone like me; the One 
telling from the beginning 
the finale, and from long ago 
the things that have not been done; 
the One saying, ‘My own counsel 
will stand…I have even spoken it;
I shall also bring it in. 
I have formed [it], 
I shall also do it.”
(Isaiah 46:9-11) (NWT)

“Everything that happens 
has happened before, 
and all that will be 
has already been- 
God does everything over 
and over again.” 
(Ecclesiastes 3:15)(CEV)-BibleGateway

GOD  HAS  CREATED  A  “NEW”  EARTH
THAT  WILL  LAST  FOREVER
GOD HAS CREATED A NEW EARTH AS PROMISED THAT WILL LAST FOREVER
 
“Look! I am creating…A NEW EARTH —
so wonderful that no one will even think 
about the old one anymore.”
(Isaiah 65:17)(NLT)-BibleGateway
“…the NEW EARTH that I create 
will last forever.”
(Isaiah 66:22)(CEV)-BibleGateway

God has created a “New” Earth, just as he promised
that he would, recorded in the scriptures from long ago.
And this new earth will last forever.  It will be 
perfect in every way, just as the first earth was 
– back in the days of Adam and Eve.

 
 
A perfect New Earth, with no pollution of any kind.
No air poolution, no water pollution, and no
chemical pollution of any kind.  The concrete jungles,
the garbage dumps, the blistering weather damage,
the ghetto’s and graffitti of mankind’s ruin, 
will all be missing from God’s New Earth.
 
 
Like a brand new beginning, Jehovah God has provided
a new paradise exactly like the one we lost out on,
so many years ago.   What a loving and brilliant
provider he is – to give such a wonderful reward to
the people loving him.  It is cerainly a gift of
tremendous proportions, that only Jehovah can 
provide for the people he cares so much for.
 
 
“Look! I am creating…A NEW EARTH —
so wonderful that no one will even think 
about the old one anymore.”

THE NEW EARTH THAT GOD HAS CREATED WILL LAST FOREVER

Building upon Clean Foundations

Bible readers will also remember that God
never allowed true worship to occur at locations
where pagan worship had been performed previously.
Pagan temples were torn down, crushed and burned,
rather than renovated or converted into a Jewish
Synogogue or Temple.  This has always been Jehovah’s
way – and it still is. – see (Exodus 23:24) (Ex 34:13)
(Lev 26:30)(Deuteronomy 7:5)(Deut12:3)
(2Chronicles 14:3)

For years, the earth has been dominated by a
pagan and gentile population that has rejected 
and hated Jehovah.  This religious empire – is
known as “Babylon the Great” and has filled 
the earth with her lies and religious corruption.  
Churches, temples, cathedrals, pagan altars, 
religious shrines, sanctuaries, monastaries, 
convents, sacred groves, sacred poles and  
numerous false religious buildings have been 
built all over the earth.  The earth has become
saturated and corrupt with these reminders
of the world’s rebellion against Jehovah God.

 The earth is filled with the blood spilled during 
the abominations of horrors that have been done 
in the name of “religion”.   The cellars of convents
and even the cellars of St. Peters in Rome – still
hold the torture chambers and contraptions of the 
“Holy” Inquisitions of former times.

 This earth is also filled with all the blood shed 
during mankind’s wars of greed and cruelty that
were generated by hatred and power struggles
around the world.

This ugly stained “old” earth is certainly not a 
place for Jehovah to build his “New Earth” upon.

A “New” Clean Earth 
upon a Dirty Foundation ?
Reward or Punishment ?

“Happy are the meek and mild – since they will 
inherit the earth.”  (Matt 5:5)
That sounds like a reward, and not a punishment.
Jehovah does not want to start rewarding his New
Earth survivors with a task of cleaning up a
planet that is filled with the remnants of the
former filthy tenants.

Look around you.  Look at the news.  
What honest hearted person wants to clean up 
this mess :  the oil spills, the garbage dumps, 
the concrete cities with their slums and ghettos, 
the polluted rivers and lakes, the chemical dumps, 
radioactive contamination from nuclear accidents, 
groundwater pollution, air pollution, the mercury 
poisoning in our oceans, and the list goes on.

With all of this in mind, we can see why Jehovah 
does not plan to build his New Earth upon the 
foundations of a dirty, polluted, and ruined “old” earth. 

Jehovah has wonderful plans for obedient mankind.
He has already created the “New” Earth that we have
been waiting for.  It is a pure and pristine planet
that does not need any back breaking work to fix.

A Pure and Pristine Planet

a NEW EARTH, where justice will rule. 
We are really looking forward to that!”

CONCRETE JUNGLES AROUND THE WORLD RUIN THE EARTH

Just look at these pictures.  Around the world
mankind has erected huge jungles of concrete
that block the sun and pollute the environment.

Some cities are so massive – that even trees have
no room to grow.  How different from Jehovah God’s
original plans for mankind.

Think about having to tear down all these
monolithic giants in order to make way for the
promised paradise.  Some Bible scholars have 
even said that God would give this project to mankind
who survives the great day of Jehovah.  How could
that be a reward for obedient mankind – to have 
to strain and struggle to remove all the decay 
from this old earth ?

What type of reward would it be for obedient
survivors to have to tear down the concrete jungles
that reach clear to the sky?  It sounds more like
a punishment than a reward.  In fact when I look
at these pictures and try to envision removing them
and dismantling them, it makes me shudder.  It’s
worse than any of my nightmares.

MANKIND HAS LITERALLY RUINED THE EARTH

True to Form

Jehovah has his way, His “Modus Operandi”,
his method of operation  – his typical way
of doing things.  Yes, Jehovah is famous 
for doing things a certain way.

In the past – it has been Jehovah’s Way,
to replace things, rather than try to 
build upon them, especially when they
have been corrupted in any way.

Jehovah has been known to tear down,
crush, and utterly destroy anything that
has offended him.

Pagan temples were not allowed to stand,
when Jehovah’s people inhabited the land.
Not only did Jehovah require the teamples
to be thrown down, but then later crushed
into dust that was blow away.  Jehovah never
allowed his people to build his sacred places
of worship at the same sight that a pagan
temple had once stood.
