What does "new" mean to God? To be a new creature in Christ, old things are passed away and all things become new (II Corinth. 5:17). All things are made new (Rev. 21:5). Pastor Fred Price, Jr. teaches that the scriptures do not say God makes all new things; rather, He will take what.s old and restore it to new. God does not eradicate you, He just makes you new.
