God’s promise of restoration recorded in Isaiah chapter 65 is so certain that Jehovah speaks of it as if it were already being fulfilled.

Jehovah creates new heavens and a new earth, where the former things are not called to mind

65:17

What are the new heavens?

  • A new government that will bring about righteous conditions on earth

  • It was established in 1914 when Christ was enthroned as King of God’s Kingdom

What is the new earth?

  • A society of people from all nationalities, languages, and races who gladly submit to the rulership of the new heavenly government

How will the former things not be called to mind?

  • The causes of hurtful memories—physical, mental, and emotional suffering—will no longer exist

  • Faithful humans will enjoy life to the full and will treasure the pleasant memories of each passing day
