Believers Will Enjoy God’s Perfect Creation Again
Passage: Hebrews 8
God promised to have a new covenant with his children so that they can have an opportunity to access the ever-reaching benefits in his kingdom. God’s new covenant will make a lasting impact on his children, and they will enjoy it eternally. God said in the scripture,
“…For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second. For finding fault with them, he saith, Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah:
Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith the Lord.
For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:
And they shall not teach every man his neighbor, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest. For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more” (Hebrews 8:7-12 KJV).
Earth Will Declare the Wonders of God
Earth inhabitants have witnessed many wonders of God, but what we have seen so far are virtually nothing to compare with more wonders to be unfolded. Presently, earth inhabitants witness the display of God’s power as they are noticeable when we observe nature and galaxy. Meanwhile, God will make everything that we see go into extinction. He will create a new earth that will display his advanced ingenuity. God’s new creation (new heaven and new earth) will contain his indescribable and glamorous works. However, something remarkable about God’s new creation is the fact that not all people will witness it. Only a few people who have declared Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior will qualify. That is, a person must declare Jesus Christ as his or her personal Lord to qualify for God’s kingdom.
(People who once had a good relationship with God but have lost it for any reason must retrace their steps back to God. Everyone must renew his or her covenant with God to qualify for his undaunted benefits.)
Someone must declare Jesus Christ as his or her personal Lord and Savior to have permanent access to God’s wonderful works in his kingdom.Click to tweet
People who have rejected the testimony of Jesus Christ will not be allowed to access God’s benefits. Their portion will be in the lake of fire. Hence, anyone who has not confessed Jesus Christ as his or her personal Lord and Savior should not hesitate to do so, since this is the only requirement that God has set for people to inherit his kingdom.

Renew your covenant with God.
Pray for God’s Power to Befit His Kingdom
Dear God, please count me worthy to inherit your kingdom. Count me among the people that will witness the beauty of your creation and enjoy it. I understand that you require all people to confess (your Son) Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior to be saved. Therefore, I am renewing my covenant with you today: I confess Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior! I repent from my sins, and I promise to start serving you with honesty and full devotion. From now on, I will prioritize serving you, and I will do this for the rest of my life. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.
