The "new earth" is the real earth as perceived by those who are converted.

I do not believe it states anywhere in scripture we will live in Heaven for a 1000 years. I will have to have scripture on this one. We will occupy the Earth during the 1000 years after we come back with Christ at the end of the Tribulation. The entire heavens that were part of creation will be restored as the Earth will be.

We are told that God will create "a new heaven and a new earth" after burning up the old heaven and the old earth. While I am pretty sure about the new earth replacing the old earth, I am not so sure how much of the old heaven s going to be recreated.
But that is not as important as to know that we are only going to be livging in heaven for 1000 yrs and then we shall descend to occupy the new earth as our new home.P.

The New Heavens and the New Earth is nothing more than this present Atomspheric and Starry heaven and Earth being restored to its original state. God created this Earth to be inhabited nad without end. Sin will be removed and it will be as it was created to be.

Scripture tells us how we can escape from Satan's grasp.
By allowing both darkness and light to coexist from the beginning, God showed that He had no intention of legislating righteousness by force, even in heaven.

Even the angels were left free by God to choose between the two, God or satan.

Satan, in his freedom, decided on his own authority to rebel and leave the way that God had commanded.
---Rachel on 10/22/07

But God did not reveal all of His secrets to satan. He had built into His creation hidden barriers to rebellion.

The meaning of the upper waters, that part of heaven which lay above the vault, and which was set aside at the beginning was unknown to Satan, so it represented an entirely new creation -- one where new heavens and a new earth could be rebuilt in perfection because no contamination existed there.

A new earth, because of satan's contamination.
---Rachel on 10/22/07

Satan will not be allowed to contaminate the "New Earth."
Satan's rebellion, the angels who followed him in his rebellion all existed at the time the Garden and Adam and Eve were first formed.

When Satan rebelled, he plunged the lower waters -- the whole new creation -- into the contamination of sin.

God threw the entire creation into isolation to prevent the imperfection that had contaminated it from spreading.

The New Earth
Isa. 65:17- 25

Verse 20, a picture between life on this earth as it is now, and as it will be in the New earth.
God likens His people to trees. There will be no wild animals in the New Earth. Nothing will be killed for food. It was not intended to be in the beginning.
---Rachel on 10/22/07

No more desolate places on the earth. Isa. 35:1, 2

According to Revelation 21:1 there will be more land space for people to live in the New Earth. The whole earth will be habitable.
---Rachel on 10/22/07

The NEW HEAVEN and the NEW EARTH and the new people are going to be the same people we have today just in a new state. All things will be made new, not new things will be made to take the place of the old 21:5 and 22:3.
---Whisper on 10/20/07

In Revelation chapter 21 we read, And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away, and there was no more sea. 1

And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 2
---Whisper on 10/20/07

Everyones Heaven will be the New Earth.

The New Earth will come down from heaven to be the capital of God on the New Earth.

There will be no more of the curse that came as a result of Lucifer and Adams rebellion. Conditions as before will prevail eternally and things will be continued as if the curse had never been. All rebels will be confined to the lake of fire as Gods personal everlasting reminder of His wrath on sin and as a warning ......continued
Revelation 21:2-3
---Whisper on 10/20/07

As I understand it, the new earth IS the 'Heaven' that everyone hopes to go to. I'm sure that, if you read the first few verses of Revelation 21, you will be able to understand this.
---RitaH on 10/20/07

We are in heaven during the 1000 years. At the end of the 1000 years we return. The earth is made new for us to inhabit. It is where we spend eternity. See Rev 20 and 21

Second Peter 3:10," 10But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up." States how the elements will burn up and become a gasous gas. And from this gas will be formed a new heaven and the new earth". And guess what the saved of all ages will live on new earth.

Somebody is probably going to correct me and I hope so, that way I can learn, but here it goes. The world that we live in is full of corrupt and sin and God hates sin, so the new earth doesn't have any corruption or sin. The new earth won't have evil in it like this one has.
