What are we going to do in the New Earth?

The apostle Paul wrote, “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him” (1 Corinthians 2:9). Here, are some verses that describe what the believers will experience and do in the New Earth:

  1. Obtain everlasting Joy: “The ransomed of the Lord shall … come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy“ (Isaiah 35:10).
  2. Experience no death or sorrow: “There shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying” (Revelation 21:4).
  3. Commune with our loving Father: “From one New Moon to another, and from one Sabbath to another, all flesh shall come to worship before Me” (Isaiah 66:23).
  4. Enjoy the pleasures of life that God prepared: “There are pleasures for evermore” (Psalm 16:11).
  5. Fellowship with others: “The streets of the city shall be full of boys and girls playing in the streets” (Zechariah 8:5).
  6. Delight in the beauty of nature: “The desert shall … blossom as the rose” (Isaiah 35:1).
  7. Build dream homes: “They (redeemed) shall build houses and inhabit them; they shall plant vineyards and eat their fruit. And My elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands” (Isaiah 65:21-22).
  8. Be blessed with no sickness: “The inhabitant shall not say, I am sick” (Isaiah 33:24). “Then the eyes of the blind shall be opened, and the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped. Then the lame shall leap like a deer, and the tongue of the dumb sing” (Isaiah 35:5, 6).
  9. Have optimum energy: “They (redeemed) shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint” (Isaiah 40:31).
  10. Appreciate God’s creatures: “The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb … and a little child shall lead them” (Isaiah 11:6).

The realities of the New Earth, the inexpressible wonder and beauty, the joy of God’s kingdom of glory, and the eternal home of the saved can not be fully understood by our limited mind. All such knowledge is far beyond anything that men can now know.
