Gene 1:1  In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

Reve 21:1  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.

Reve 21:4-5  And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.  And 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.

Reve 20:11  And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.

We read about the heaven and earth having been created in Genesis. Adam was created by God. Adam failed in the kingdom in Eden. Jesus is the last Adam, the head of the new humanity.
Colo 1:17-18  And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all [things] he might have the preeminence.
Adam was told to multiply. One became two. The same thing occurred with Jesus Christ. Only those who came from Jesus Christ are considered the new humanity. We are actually new creatures if we are in Christ.

I know people who are taking this truth seriously.

We need to act like new creatures and people who have a God on their side. There is only one place God made available for us to be saved and salvaged from passing away that we might become new creatures. God brought us into a New Kingdom. When Satan attacks, what do you do? We died with Christ and are new creatures. What went in the tomb did not come out. Jesus prayed in the Garden, saying, "If it be possible, let this cup pass from me." Like Joseph, we need to see that Jesus was buried in OUR TOMBS. We must do a little calculating. I know people who tell me they were thieves and drunkards. The prostitute walked into the Pharisees house, where Jesus had been invited for supper. Churches don't want drunks coming in, nor thieves. We still have memories of our old lives. Thank God for the cross where the old long ago died. Are you born again, and ready for the New?
Acts 2:37-38  Now when they heard [this], they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men [and] brethren, what shall we do? Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
