True, Don, true. We are to stay watchful, be prepared as the virgins with oil in their lamps, increase in faith and endure in faithfulness until the end, whether that be natural death, martyrdom, or being alive when Jesus does return. We are to be prayerful, diligent in our service for the Lord for the sake of others, live exemplary lives before others for the glory of God and to reflect the character of Jesus in our godly living.

Our calling is to be representatives of our Lord in this world with a willingness to suffer, as He suffered so greatly for us, taking the wrath of God for our sin upon Himself on the cross. Our sufferings are light in comparison to what He endured. But none the same, they will try our faith and cause us pain and troubles. The glory that lies ahead for us is beyond what we can imagine. So we keep our eye on the prize of the upward calling of Christ; to the inheritance kept for us in heaven; to the full redemption of our body, soul, and spirit; to hear "Well done, good and faithful servant." And ultimately, to see our Savior face to face in all of His glory!

I believe it means they will literally pass away. 2 Peter 3:6-7, the first time the earth perished it was by water, but the heavens and earth will be destroyed by fire. 2 Peter 3:10 says it again, "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." But...we'll have a new heaven and a new earth, undefiled.
