Max Lucado 3:16 – The Numbers of Hope: November 11, 2016

What about the promises of the earth’s destruction?  Peter and John use A-bomb terminology.  “Disappear with a roar…destroyed by fire…laid bare…passed away? (2 Peter 3:10, Revelation 21:1).  Won’t this planet be destroyed?  Yes, but destruction need not mean elimination.  Our bodies provide a prototype.  They will pass away, return to dust.  Yet the one who called Adam out of a dirt pile will do so with us.  Christ will reverse decomposition with resurrection.  Amino acids will regenerate.  Lungs will awaken.  Molecules will reconnect.  The mortal body will put on immortality (1 Corinthians 15:53).  The same is true about earth.
