God’s Word, the truth, will stand firm even when this present heavens and earth have passed away. God’s Word will endure throughout eternity.
Artist’s Reflection:Jesus said:
“Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.” (Matthew 24:35)“It is easier for heaven and earth to disappear than for the least stroke of a pen to drop out of the Law [God’s Word].” (Luke 16:17)
“Your word, O LORD is eternal; it stands firm in the heavens.” (Psalm 119:89)God’s Word (the Bible) is the eternal, immutable reality.
In a sense, God’s Word is an infinitely more concrete reality than the material universe that surrounds us, for the present heavens and earth will soon be destroyed, but God’s Word will endure forever (2 Peter 3:1-13, Revelation 20:11, 1 Peter 1:23-25).“The Son [Jesus] is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word.” (Hebrews 1:3)
The following is written on the artwork:“You will hear of wars and rumors of wars…such things must happen, but the end is still to come…there will be famines and earthquakes…See, I have told you ahead of time…Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away… (Matthew 24)
“Earth and sky fled from his presence, and there was no place for them…books were opened…the dead were judged…Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away…” (Excerpts from Revelation 21 and 22)
