This was a popular song in the 70's by Mama Cass....'a new world coming, and it's just around the bend; a new world coming, this one's coming to an end; yes, a new voice calling, you can hear it if you try; coming in peace, coming in power, coming in love"....However, the new world that's coming is going to be quiet different from the one Mama Cass was singing about. She, like many in her time, was stoned and dependent on mind-altering drugs, for the most part.
Prophets of old and New Testament writers all were led to write about this "new world" that we call the kingdom of God. In order for this to come about, Scripture teaches that there will be an end to this world we know; a new life, new world, the new city of God will be ushered in at the appointed time. When? Only God, the Father, knows. Jesus told his disciples '' that not even the angels in heaven know the time this will happen". It will happen so suddenly, just like a thief in the night. Swift, unexpected.Subscribe to Read!
