Revelation 21:1

1 And I saw a 1anew heaven and a new earth; for the 2bfirst heaven and the first earth passed away, and the 3sea is no more.


12 According to the principle revealed in the Bible, God does not want the first, whether man or thing (Exo. 12:12), but the second. Hence, whatever is the first, whether heaven, earth, man, or thing, will be annulled (v. 4; cf. 1 Cor. 15:47; Heb. 8:7, 13). If the Greek word for first is rendered former, the spiritual significance is missed.
