Not the physical earth, but the earth as perceived by fallen man.

The Earth will not be Totally destroyed. We must take the Bible as a Whole. The Bible says the Earth was destroyed by the flood, but as we can see, it still remains to this day. It is the Works and the Elements that are therein that will be destroyed. those things brought on by the fall of man. Sin will be removed and everything associated with it.God created the Earth to be inhabited forever.Just because man fail to sin does not and will not alter God's Original plan of why he created the Earth.

It certainly is..Destruction of this old sinful world. May we be so wise as to prepare for it, that it may not be a day of vengeance and destruction unto us. The earth also and the works shall be burned up. Everything which has been constructed upon the earth is razed or pushed away so that the earth is exposed and nothing else remains. God created it God is going to destroy it. All in preparation for the new city. The time when men are most secure will be the time of the Lord's coming.

It says "both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up." (in 2 Peter 3:10), and therefore consider "what manner of persons you ought to be in holy conduct and godliness" (next verse) > so there is the positive thing for us to get out of the fact that this whole earth and all man's works here shall come to nothing.

It's like recycle, sort of? You destroy the trash in order to convert it by heat into much better. Or, if God resurrects your dead and dry bones in the grave...this destroys those bones, the way they are, but then . . . way so much better comes in their place > "because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God." (Romans 8:21) This earth will "also" be in our bodies' resurrectional glory.

"For our God is a consuming fire." (Hebrews 12:29) God is the fire who will burn the earth and all its works, I consider > He does not need any help from a nuclear holocaust (o: He is the fire who shall resurrect our earthen bodies (Romans 8:11) AND the whole earth from which these bodies have been made (2 Peter 3:10 with Romans 8:20-21) > "Behold, I make all things new." (in Revelation 21:5) > in the resurrectional newness of the Holy Spirit's fire, or it isn't new.

Yes! Second Peter 3:10 Cleary predicts the total destruction of the earth by fire. Now for my own idea about this, I believe the elements will be heated and melt into a gas or vapor and then will be reconstituted by the Lord Jesus Christ. For he has said, "behold I make all things new".

Yes. John saw a vision of this earth and the heaven will be destroyed, but he saw a new heaven and a new earth. Rev 21:1.

Yes. But keep reading. In vs 13 He tells us of a new heaven and new earth.
Isaiah also tells us of the new heaven and earth (Is 66:22,23)
