A Worn Out Cosmos?

But about his Son, he called him “God,” saying, “Your throne, O God, endures forever and ever and you will rule your kingdom with justice and righteousness, For you have cherished righteousness and detested lawlessness. For this reason, God, Your God has anointed you and poured out the oil of bliss on you more than on any of your friends.”

And he called him Lord, saying, “Lord, you formed the earth in the beginning and with your own hands you crafted the cosmos. They will both one day disappear, but you will remain forever! They will all fade like a worn-out garment, And they will be changed like clothes, and you will fold them up and put them away. But you are ‘I AM.’ You never change, years without end!” (Hebrews 1:8-12, TPT)

Stop and reflect for a moment. The universe; or cosmos; by definition, is regarded as an enormous orderly and harmonious system beyond our comprehension. But in reality, it is chaotic and violent. Yet, according to scripture, God created it for a temporary purpose. And someday, he’s going to roll it up like a worn-out garment and simply put it away.

Second Peter says, “The atmosphere will be set on fire and vanish with a horrific roar, and the heavenly bodies will melt away as in a tremendous blaze. The earth and every activity of man will be laid bare. Since all these things are on the verge of being dismantled, don’t you see how vital it is to live a holy life? We must be consumed with godliness while we anticipate and help speed up the coming of the day of God, when the atmosphere will be set on fire and the heavenly bodies consumed in a blaze.”

How big is your God?
