When Do the New Heavens and New Earth Come – in Two Minutes

Jesus foretold the event…

Heaven and earth will pass away… (Matt 24:35 NKJV) 

Peter described it…

Armageddon Presentation Picturethe day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. (2Pet 3:10 NKJV)

John saw it…

Then the sky [gr. heaven – ouranos] receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place. (Rev 6:14 NKJV; see also Rev 16:20)
God (via Isaiah) foretold the new creation where death was still possible – clearly in the context on the Millennium…
For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth… No more shall an infant from there live but a few days, Nor an old man who has not Animals in New Worldfulfilled his days; For the child shall die one hundred years old, But the sinner being one hundred years old shall be accursed.They shall build houses… plant vineyards For as the days of a tree, so shall be the days of My people, And My elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands. The wolf and the lamb shall feed together….  (Isa 65:17, 20-22, 25 NKJV)
John agrees with Isaiah (God). John said that they first heavens and first earth (which are the current set) passed away. That means that the second set is what replaces the first.
Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away. Also there was no more sea. (Rev 21:1 NKJV)
Bottom line: the passing away of the heavens and earth is when the veil between heaven and earth is removed (the Greek work apokalypsis literally means “unveiling”) – that is the day that Jesus comes back at the second coming. The heavens will recede like a scroll and pass away with great noise. The elements and the mountains will melt like wax (Ps 97:4) because Jesus is coming back in flaming fire (2Thes 1:7-8). The men on the earth will run into the rocks because of the enormity of the that day and they will ask themselves “who is able to stand?” (Rev 6:14-17; Isaiah 2) – the earth will have fallen not to rise again. (Isaiah 24:19-20) Every island and mountain has fled away. If that isn’t the passing away of the earth then I don’t what is.
