Mathew 24 Part 109 – Heaven & Earth and the Old Covenant “Cosmos”

In his second epistle, the apostle Peter clearly identifies the “heaven and earth” of both his and Noah’s day, as the the system or orderly arrangement (the cosmos) that governed the age. According to Peter, the cosmos of his day was being reserved for fire, and according to both Paul and John, that same cosmos was passing away, it was even in its very last “hour”. Just a few years after Peter penned those words, the cosmos (the system and orderly arrangement) of Judaism was destroyed by fire though the destruction of Jerusalem and that Old Covenant “world” in AD70. Israel’s heaven and earth was judged by fire.
