Something New

Look! I am creating new heavens and a new earth, and no one will even think about the old ones anymore.

Isaiah 65:17

The prophet Isaiah tells us the Lord said: “For I am about to create new heavens and a new earth.” Scripture tells us that the Lord was displeased because there was no justice in the community; no one was marching up to the plate to help the oppressed and the victimized. So, God stepped in to do the job. I wonder if God is displeased to see so much violence occurring in and around our communities today. I submit to you that the situation in Isaiah is similar to the one that many people are experiencing today. As a result, many people have abandoned hope. They find themselves in a world that needs changing, a world that needs saving, a world that cries out to be made new and improved. People of faith believe that a new day is on the horizon. And so, we wait and anticipate the new heavens and new earth. In these troubled times, people must continue holding onto hope.
