We have put our leg in 2016. It is the time for the battle of GOOD & EVIL. God has shared His secrets with me “Behold, I will make the all things new”. God wants to do new things in the lives of His children. And He will surely do the same for the people. Thus keep your faith and develop a closer relationship with God through Prayer and repent for doing mistake & for doing sin. Live each day through the guidance of the Holy Spirit expecting new things. They shall come to pass according to the Word said in Bible, Isaiah 43:19, “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up.” Lord said in Bible, Rev. 21:5 God sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
People can never bring new blessings by ourselves. When the Holy Spirit renews us every day, new blessings reach us automatically. In order that we should not become weary and get destroyed, the Lord is renewing the inner man by His Holy Spirit. This is going to happen to you all through this blessed year.
According to His promise, He is making everything new. In His grace, compassion and out of His great love for you, He will fill you with His Spirit, this Year. He will renew your inner man.
What exactly is it that God has done for you that no one else on earth can? He has wiped the slate clean. With man it is hard to forget wrongs, no matter how hard you try, or how much you pay, there is always someone somewhere who remembers what you did who is unwilling to let it go and forget about it, whereas with God, when He forgives He also no longer has a need to call it to mind. It is all written in the Holy book which holds the story of our lives. One day we will remember with tears during the judgment all of our sins and failings, but we are encouraged to know that Lord is right there with us receiving again and He is ready to give His glory to whom those are repenting for their committing sin and keep faith in God, so for them until judgment it’s like it never happened.
God wants us to know the simplicity of His plan; that everything has been taken care of, that His grace and salvation are made just for us and they are free. Not because of anything we did or didn’t do. He loved us and saw us in our misery and gave us salvation and then He made us a new creation, a triangle that can never again fit into a square life, to Him the old life means nothing! It doesn’t matter whether we were a good person who never broke the law, or the most evil person on the face of the earth, once you are forgiven and made new that’s all that counts to Him, the new creation. Now if you committed crimes that earned you time in jail, God may rescue you from it, or give you a purpose to fulfill behind bars. We don’t earn salvation; He gives it freely to all who love Him. Once you’re saved, all you have to do is abide in Him, live a life worthy of the offering He gave. You don’t have to keep getting saved, it’s like applying for a job that you already have all over again, nothing you can do will make Him love you more. Just be what He called you to be and do the task He has given you, willingly with joy and love, and nothing you have done will make Him close the door, unless you openly reject Him and spit in His face by continuing to be rebellious and unsubmissive to the life He gave you to save you from Hell. Bible, Galatians 6 : 15prophesied – Neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything; what counts is a new creation.
God does not promise joyful circumstances, but He does promise joy in the circumstances, you just have to look for it. And what greater joy is there than to know that you are where the Lord wants you to be and you are doing what God has called you to do and having a joyful attitude about it besides? That is what counts: not where you are or what the job is, but that you rejoice in it.
Bible, Rev. 21:1-5 prophesied – Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband; and I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling of God is with men. He will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself will be with them; he will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain any more, for the former things have passed away.” And he who sat upon the throne said, “Behold I make all things new.” Also he said, “Write this, for these words are trustworthy and true.” And he said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give from the fountain of the water of life without payment. He who conquers shall have this heritage, and I will be his God and he shall be my son.
There are Four Ways in Which God Will Make All Things New; it is as below:
The purpose of God for creation and for His people will not be complete until all things are made new and the glory of the Lord fills them all. In Bible, Rev 21:5 God says, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He enforces the certainty of it in two ways. He is sitting on His throne when He says it—the throne of the universe. “He who sat upon the throne said, ‘Behold I make all things new.'” And after He had said it, He added, “Write this, for these words are trustworthy and true.” So God wants us to read this and be sure of it. He wants us to have assurance that no matter how much evil and suffering and futility we see now, He will make all things new.
Let’s look at four ways the newness is coming:
1. Spiritually and Morally New
God is going to make us spiritually and morally new and glorious.
The Greatest Frustration of This Age is before us. The greatest frustration of this age is that we are still doing sin. Bible, Romans 7 describes this painful truth. According to the Romans 7 : 23–24: “I delight in the law of God in my inmost self, but I see in my members another law at war with the law of my mind.” This war is the most frustrating thing about life in this age—at least it is for the children of God. We want to be holy and we fall short of the holiness we long for. We want to love and we say hurtful things. We want to worship and we feel cold. We want to walk in peace and we feel anxiety. We want to be pure in thought and impurity bombards our minds. There is some progress as the Spirit helps us in our weakness. But what we long for is deliverance from this bent to sinning.
Vision of the Beautified Bride:
That is what God promises when He makes all things new. We will be made spiritually and morally new—not just partially as now, but wholly. Look at Rev. 21:2: “And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.”
This is a picture of the Lord’s temple prepared and beautified for her husband, Lord God. When God makes all things new, He makes the Lord’s temple—the people of God—spiritually and morally beautiful for His Son. Look at the way this is described in Bible, Rev. 21 9–11:
Then came one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls full of the seven last plagues, and spoke to me, saying, “Come, I will show you the Bride, the wife of the Lamb.”
And in the Spirit he carried me away to a great, high mountain, and showed me the holy city Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God (the same image as in Rev. 21: 2),
having the glory of God, its radiance like a most rare jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal.
When God makes the bride ready for the Son, the way he does it is by giving us His glory—Rev. 21: 11: “having the glory of God.” And this glory will purify us so deeply and so thoroughly that we will be like a rare jewel, clear as crystal. Don’t you long for the day when you will be so good and so right and so pure that you will be like a translucent jewel that people will look at and see straight through without seeing any impurity at all? Nothing hidden and nothing shameful.
That’s the first way the newness is coming. God will make us spiritually and morally beautiful for our final marriage with His Son.
2. Physically and Bodily New
Second, God is going to make us physically and bodily new and glorious.
The Bible does not teach that the final state of glory is one of disembodied spirits. He wanted it that way because they thought the body was a drag on the freedom of the spirit. But the Bible teaches a very different destiny for God’s people. God will make all things new—including our bodies.
Bible, Rev. 21: 4 points in this direction: “He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain any more, for the former things have passed away.”
No more death. No more pain. No more tears. What that means is that the body we know now will be changed. Because it dies. And it hurts. And it cries. If death is gone and pain is gone and tears are gone, then the body as we know it here is gone. That may sound like Plato—good riddance to the body of pain. Revelation is plain that the point is not good riddance to the body but that God will make all things new.
A Glorified Body Like Lord’s
Paul put it like this in Bible, Philippians 3:20-21
Our commonwealth is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord, who will change the body of our lowliness to be like the body of His glory, according to the working by which he is able to subdue all things to Himself.
It is prophesied in Bible “We shall certainly be united to him in a resurrection like his.” It is a new body: it will never die again, it will never hurt again, it will never cry again—except perhaps for joy.
There are a lot of people who feel that they didn’t get a fair shake when the bodies were passed out. Some people have dramatic deformities, some have lost limbs, some are paralyzed, some can’t hear, some can’t see, some have extensive skin blemishes, some have freakish distortions. But God has no intention of leaving anybody in that condition if they will trust him. He has his purposes in letting a man be born blind and leaving him blind for much of his adult life (Bible, John 9:1). But He has no intention of leaving anyone with pain and disability who trusts in Him.
Now question is When God makes all things new, He makes our bodies new?
3. The New Creation
Third, God is going to make the creation new and glorious.
This is the point of Bible, Rev. 21: 1: “Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more.” I don’t think this means that God picks us up and takes us to a new solar system—though he certainly could if he wanted to. The hope of the prophets seems to be that this earth and these heavens will be made new. God will renovate the whole thing—a kind of global rehab project. And everything futile and evil and painful will be done away.
Paul put it like this in Bible, Romans 8:21 “The creation itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and obtain the liberty of the glory of the children of God.” The newness and the glory of the Lord’s temple, the children of God, is primary and first. But then God promises that the glory of His people will demand a glorious creation to live in. So the fallen creation will obtain the very freedom from futility and evil and pain that the Lord’s temple is given.
So when God makes all things new, He makes us new spiritually and morally, He makes us new physically, and then He makes the whole creation new so that our environment fits our perfected spirits and bodies.
4. A New Relationship with God
God will make our relationship with him new and glorious.
John tells us about this in Bible, Rev. 21: 3 “I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, ‘Behold, the dwelling of God is with men. He will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God Himself will be with them.”
It’s true that God is with us now. His Spirit dwells in us (Bible, 1 Corinthians 6:19). Lord promised never to leave us to the end of the age (Bible, Metthew 28:20). But in Bible, 2 Corinthians 5:6-7 Paul said, “While we are at home in the body, we are away from the Lord, here we walk by faith and not by sight.”
So there is a deep and painful sense in which we are “away from the Lord”—we do not see as we will one day see. “Blessed are the pure in heart,” Lord said, “for they shall see God.” It’s a promise. Something greater is coming for all of us in our relation with God.
How many times will a little child say what we all feel, “But daddy, I can’t see Him”? That is a real heart cry that we should never lose. Bible, Rev. 22:4 gives the answer to it: “They shall see His face and His name shall be on their foreheads.”
When God makes all things new, He will make us spiritually and morally as pure as flawless crystal, He will give us a body like the body of His glory, He will renovate all creation to take all futility and evil and pain out of it, and finally He Himself will come to us and let us see His face. And so forever and ever we will live with pure hearts and glorious bodies on a new earth in the presence and the glory of our heavenly Father.
