Verse of the Day, December 16, 2019
2 Peter 3:13 KJV “Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.”
The earth and heavens we dwell on/in now is the practice facility. The happiness, joy, peace, love, abundance, mercy, tranquility, wealth, success, happiness, and more that we look for in the Kingdom of Heaven is supposed to be practiced here and now.
The ways of the Creator we desire to keep in the Kingdom of Heaven should be kept here and now. Therefore, as the apostle Peter said, we look for new heavens and earth, according to the LORD’s promise.
This new heavens and earth we will dwell in total righteousness, abandoning the opposite.

but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but
