13 The sea is a result of the waters of judgment, which God used to judge the preadamic world (see Life-study of Genesis, Message Two). The work of God's re-creation was to recover the land by restricting the result of the waters of judgment (Gen. 1:9-10; Jer. 5:22). The living creatures of the preadamic world, after being judged by the waters, became the sea's inhabitants, the demons. After they have been dealt with by Christ and His believers (Matt. 8:29-32; Luke 10:17; Acts 16:16-18; 19:12) and the sea has given them up to the judgment of the great white throne (20:13), the sea will not be needed. Since the work of God's re-creation, God's intention has been to abolish the sea by dealing with Satan and his demons. Hence, the sea is no more indicates that Satan and his evil followers will all be dealt with and will not be found in the new heaven and new earth.
