We all know the passage from Paul about the identity of a person who has been brought into the body of Christ.
"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, HE IS A NEW CREATION; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new" 2 Corinthians 5:17
God's first creation Heavens and Earth in Genesis was an order that involved people.
God's new creation in the New Heavens and Earth is a New order that involves people.
Nothing biologically changes in a person when they become a new creation in Christ. It's a Covenant term. They are brought into Covenant with God and given eternal life.
Creation language stays consistent the whole way through.
We see the FIRST and ONLY creation account in Genesis 1-3. God forming His people out of a world steeped in paganism and darkness. He said "let there be light" and He gave them illumination to be His witness to the world. Of course it didn't really work out that way.
The SECOND creation account is in Revelation 21.
There are only 2 creation accounts.
If we are in agreement that the new creation has come (and indeed it has) then the first creation MUST have passed away.
"Now I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for THE FIRST heaven and THE FIRST earth had PASSED AWAY." Rev 21:3
Only 2 "Heaven and Earth's".
