Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”
The creation story is told in Chapter 1 of Genesis. There we can see described the sequence by which God made everything that exists. On the other hand, when people hear the word Revelation, the first image that comes to mind is the end, punishment, destruction. For me, Revelation is the most beautiful book of the Bible because it contains the most valuable promises for those who believe. One of them is in Revelation 21:5 and is a new creation to replace the first corrupted by sin.
Acquiring a new thing is something that delighted who succeeds. Who would not be excited the first you drive your new car? The same happens when we buy a new TV, a new computer or a new cell phone. The first use of each of these devices, we felt like kids with new toys and do not want to leave until we have learned all the features that distinguish it from its similar which we are replacing.
During my childhood, I loved the beginning of the school year. When new textbooks came to my hands I would not let go until I had not leafed each page by page. I stopped to see the figures, maps, portraits of historical people, pictures of animals and plants and even the formulas in math or science books. Finally, I took them my two hands; I closed my eyes and put my nose close to revel in the smell of a new book.
Everything was new once, either car, TV, computer, cell phone, books, clothes and shoes, after a period of use is stale. The car begins to fail; the TV remote control may have fallen several times and no longer allows we to turn on/off; computer or cell phone become slow; clothes lose color and its texture becomes more fragile; shoes become brittle and pages of books turn yellow. All this happens by the use and, sometimes, by abuse.
When God created the heavens and the earth and all it contains He saw that it was good. During the creation of light, continents, oceans, trees, moon, sun, stars, fish, birds, land animals and man, God was always satisfied with what He had created. Genesis 1:31 says: Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day. At the beginning of the creation everything smelled new and was very good.
The appearance of sin on earth brought curse and corruption. Genesis 3:17 says: Then to Adam He said, “Because you have heeded the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree of which I commanded you, saying, ‘You shall not eat of it’: “Cursed is the ground for your sake; in toil you shall eat of it All the days of your life. But the great love and mercy of God have moved Him to give us the most beautiful promise contained in Revelation 21:5: make all things new. These words are faithful and true, believe it. God bless you.
