Burning Dross

This month, I was walking through Burnley when I was struck my the pinkness of the sky. It was rather attractive, but it also reminded me of the Day of the Lord. The Bible teaches that this world will not be suffered to exist forever, but that God has appointed a day in which its rebellion and suffering will end. Ahead of a new creation, we are:

…looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt with fervent heat? 2 Peter 3:12 (NKJV)

Here, the very molecules of water and gas which fill the sky will be glowing with heat. With them, the false religions, counterfeit churches and compromising denominations will combust, too, never again to pollute the soul of man.
