(Let Clyde read the Goodie for you!)
He that sat upon the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said unto me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful” (Revelation 21:5).
This is a tremendous statement found in Revelation. God is going to make all new; there isn’t a thing that you can see that God isn’t going to make new.
When God sent the Lord Jesus Christ into the world, do you know what He was doing? He was starting a whole new humanity. We read in Genesis that He created humanity that was the beginning of the old humanity. When He sent Christ into the world that was the beginning of a new humanity.
What God made in the past is not an end in itself, but only a means toward an end. When God made the human from the soil, He never intended that the human would always be soil. God looked at what He had made, and it was good. But that is quite different from the word we read in Colossians chapter 2 when we read that we are “complete in Him.” When God makes you new, you will be complete. God has been active in creating, and He does not yet have the finished product. When He does, His plan will be consummated.
