The heavens and the earth are reserved away for a great fire at judgment day, when all ungodly men will perish. All things shall be dissolved.
When shall these things be?
No one knows except the Father. It’ll not happen according to the counting of man, "But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day" 2 Peter 3:8. Now is like tomorrow to the Lord.
The day of the Lord
The day of the Lord is surely coming;
"But 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" 2 Peter 3:10.
We Christians look forward to that day, and to God's promise of new heavens and a new earth being fulfilled, "in which righteousness dwells" 2 Peter 3:13.
Why isn’t the Lord coming now?
Consider that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation my friend; the Lord is not slack concerning His promise. The good reason is that he is not willing that any should perish, and he is giving more time for sinners to repent. Also, while you are waiting for these things to happen and for him to come, try hard to live without sinning; and be at peace with everyone so that he will be pleased with you when he returns.
"Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness. But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen." 2 Peter 3:17-18.
