On this #EarthDay, let's discuss the future Day when this entire world will be purified thru fire! When I was asked a question about a difference in Isaiah 24:1 in the KJV and NKJV , it caused me to recognize that this entire passage in the Old Testament references the final judgment of all mankind which was written 700 years before Christ! That shouldn't be a surprise because the entire Bible continually tells us there is coming a Day when the "heavens and the earth, which are now, (are) reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men" (2 Peter 3). https://youtu.be/6lmskEsMAtM

Dear Friends, Joh 3:5  Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. Joh 3:6  That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Joh 3:7  Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. Here Jesus tells Nicodemus that he must be born again. Jesus tells him this in two ways, both positively and negatively. In verse three Jesus begins his discussion with Nicodemus by saying, “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Jesus first states His proposition negatively. He is telling us that except, unless, or without being born again we cannot enter His kingdom. Then He states His proposition positively when He tells Nicodemus that, “You must be born again.” In the minds of the ancients, to state your proposition both positively and negatively left no doubt about your intent. Here, Jesus leaves no doubt in the mind of Nicodemus that he must be born again. Nicodemus understood what Jesus was telling him. His question was, how is this accomplished. I think that Paul gives us an eloquent description of the new birth in the book of Romans. I hope that you are a “born again” Christian! Rom 6:3  Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Rom 6:4  Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. Rom 6:5  For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: Rom 6:6  Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. In His Service, Dale
