And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
Does this mean there will not be any sea in the earth made new?
I heard one interpretation from Pastor Travis Ford that what John meant by the sea was troubles and isolation since he was in an island. It made sense to me.
Nkosilathi ok but bear in mind he was speaking of him seeing a new heaven and a new earth and there was no more sea should this be taken as read.
Lol. Will the absence of a sea spell trouble for fisher folks? Just kidding. There is so much to learn when we get to heaven.
Less than how did you arrive at that?
Less i was just asking where and how you came up with that conclusion thats all. And besides this is not talking about heaven it is talking about the earth made new.
Less I prefer to use the KJV alone and it is talking about the sea and it did say no more sea. Now when we start interpreting the bible and looking for reason and logic we will eventually go off course. I did not ask why there will not be a sea I simply asked if there will be any more sea since the text said there will be none. Cant we just accept that by faith. (unless there is some other text to say otherwise or something from EGW).
hhm David, u mean you will be with Jesus and there where are we going to be?
and what about us won't we be sharing Jesus too? He died for all those who repent and will welcome us same place same time.. I guess. All we need to is be patient and don't make no assumptions. God bless you as your contributions on this site is well been shared.
@ David who obviously posts his devious ideas:
There is no need for nastiness when people are just wanting to discuss...trying to wrap their head around things.
Bad attitudes are just a turn off..then noone wants to pay attention to the person being nasty...it is very difficult to try to speak with people who believe their opinion is the only relevant one and anyone who tries to discuss it because they are not sure are treated abominably with bad attitude retorts.
Sabrina thanks for your contribution it is good reasoning and logic but is there any other texts to support such instead of just using logic.
Peter speaks of the Original Earth as the--"World that then WAS, that, being OVERFLOWED WITH WATER, perished." 2. Pet. 3:6. It is clear that Peter does not refer here to Noah's Flood, for the world of Noah's day did not perish, and Peter goes on to add that--"The heavens and the earth WHICH ARE NOW (that is, have been in existence since the restoration of the earth as described in Gen. 1:3-31), by the same word are kept in store, RESERVED UNTO FIRE" (2 Pet. 3:7), nevertheless he adds, "we look for a
NEW HEAVEN AND A NEW EARTH." 2. Pet. 3:13. These words of Peter reveal the fact that this Earth is to pass through 3 stages. First the Original Earth that "perished" by WATER. Second the Earth that is now, that is to be renovated or cleansed by FIRE. And the New Earth that is to exist forever
Immediately after the destruction of Satan and his armies, John says,
"I saw a 'Great White Throne' and Him that sat on it, from whose face the Earth and the Heaven (atmosphere of the earth) fled away; and there was no place for them." Rev. 20:11.
John then describes the Judgment of the "Great White Throne," and then adds--
"I saw a New Heaven; and a New Earth; for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea." Rev. 21:1.
Of such a change in this earth we are not ignorant, but John does not tell us how it is to come to pass. But the Apostle Peter does.
"Nevertheless we, according to His Promise (Isa. 65:17; 66:22), look for a New Heavens and a New Earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness." 2. Pet. 3:7-13.
