And only True God can make a new heaven and a new earth wherein dwelleth righteousness.
“But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.
“Since all these things are thus to be dissolved, what sort of people ought you to be in lives of holiness and godliness, waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be set on fire and dissolved, and the heavenly bodies will melt as they burn! But according to his promise we are waiting for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.
“Therefore, beloved, since you are waiting for these, be diligent to be found by him without spot or blemish, and at peace. And count the patience of our Lord as salvation, just as our beloved brother Paul also wrote to you according to the wisdom given him, as he does in all his letters when he speaks in them of these matters. There are some things in them that are hard to understand, which the ignorant and unstable twist to their own destruction, as they do the other Scriptures. You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, take care that you are not carried away with the error of lawless people and lose your own stability. But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.” -2 Peter 3:8-18. ESV Study Bible.
1 Peter 1-5
And only True God can make the present heavens and earth pass away.
And only True God can bring about the great tribulation that will put an end to Babylon the great.
And only by the grace of God can we believe the gospel and believe in God’s Son, his Living Word the Lord Jesus Christ; and be saved and forgiven; and either resurrected and changed or be regenerated as we live and await His Second Coming in glory. And live in newness of life and gloriously regenerated bodies — like His body after His resurrection from the dead.
And if we do not believe in True God then we cannot understand reality clearly.
True God sends his Holy Spirit — the Spirit of truth and understanding — into the hearts of those who believe the gospel of Christ Jesus. The Holy Spirit is our divine Helper and Comforter and Counselor. Without Him — the Holy Spirit sent by Jesus Christ our Lord — we are deceived by the god of this world – who deceived Eve in the garden of Eden.
If we reject or do not accept or merely neglect the grace of True God by which alone we may believe in the gospel of Christ and believe on the Son of God our Savior – then by God’s judgment we will inherit eternal damnation after this life is over.
Human beings apart from the saving work of Jesus have no way to get into His kingdom; and have no way to avoid being left outside “where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.”
“Behold, I am coming soon, bringing my recompense with me, to repay everyone for what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.
“Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates. Outside are the dogs and sorcerers and the sexually immoral and murderers and idolators, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.” -Revelation 22:12-15. ESV Study Bible.
“For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, led astray, slaves to various passions and pleasures, passing our days in malice and envy, hated by others and hating one another. But when the goodness and loving kindness of God our Savior appeared, he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by his grace we might become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.” -Titus 3:3-7. ESV Study Bible.
Even though God made us all and made everything, only those who believe God’s truth will be saved.
Saying “No” — and thus rejecting God’s Truth and instead going your own way is NOT God’s Way. It is your way. There is no salvation in you alone apart from Christ. And there is no salvation in you loving the world that lies in wickedness.
“I did not say these things to you from the beginning, because I was with you. But now I am going to him who sent me, and none of you asks me, ‘Where are you going?’ But because I have said these things to you, sorrow has filled your heart. Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you. And when he comes, he will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment: concerning sin, because they do not believe in me; concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father, and you will see me no longer; concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.”
“I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you. All that the Father has is mine; therefore I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you.” -John 16:4b-15. ESV Study Bible.

“And as they still went on and talked, behold, chariots of fire and horses of fire separated the two of them. And Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. And Elisha saw it and he cried, ‘My father, my father! The chariots of Israel and its horsemen!’ And he saw him no more.
“Then he took hold of his own clothes and tore them in two pieces. And he took up the cloak of Elijah that had fallen from him and went back and stood on the bank of the Jordan. Then he took the cloak of Elijah that had fallen from him and struck the water, saying, ‘Where is the LORD, the God of Elijah?’ And when he had struck the water, the water was parted to the one side and to the other, and Elisha went over.” -2 Kings 2:11-14.
