Matthew 24:35King James Version
35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. My question is; who or what is the Heaven and earth that will pass away?

Larry Bray Here is my answer to the question I asked. It was longer than I thought it was going to be. First of all, you must remember that from Genesis to Revelation is about Jesus.
So let me try to explain this to me and you the best I know how.
The Heaven and the earth that passed away was Jesus.
Now in the English when we say that “someone passed away” it means they died or deceased.
So Jesus was the Heaven and the earth that passed away at Calvary.
Earth showing his fleshly body and heavenly showing his spiritual side Jesus had both.
Romans 8:3 For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: ( this is showing that Jesus came in the likeness of sinful flesh as you and I. Jesus born of natural man. He could have sinned as you and I. But Praise the Lord he condemned sin in the flesh. The fleshly was prone to sin and opposed to God. So the natural man deceased at Calvary.
There was darkness at the crucifixion of Jesus at Golgotha.
Mat: 27:45 Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour.
46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken
me? ( Why was there darkness? I think the above scripture says it best. God had forsaken Jesus because of the sinful flesh that was in Jesus.
There was no more light. Darkness had covered the light. There was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour. this silence was no more of
the truth coming forth. Nothing from the spiritual side of Jesus.
Now let me also show what died out but the church has resurrected it or brought it back to life. This is what Jesus killed on the cross. Jesus destroyed
the earth that was passed away. He destroyed the law with those 10 commandments….Colossians 2:14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; ( the law is no more but as I said earlier that the church brought it back up. They revied the law that Jesus destroyed. They gave it breath.
Galatians 5: 4 Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace. ( There is no justification under the law and you have fallen from grace. Jesus set us free from that earthly flesh and we are no more under the law.
He did away with that law. Jesus said to the woman at the well when ye shall neither in this mountain nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father. That was the old Jerusalem Galatians 4:25 For this Agar is mount Sinai in Arabia, and answereth to Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children. See that the earthly has passed away. There was nothing but bondage under that old Jerusalem the fleshly side. but praise the Lord Jesus did away with the old and brought about the new.
Galatians 4:26 But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all. ( praise God we are free)
He destroyed the earthly and brought in a New Jerusalem. Revelation 21:1…And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
See the passed away here in this scripture. Was that not in the scripture that I asked the question? sure it was. Matthew 24:35Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
One more scripture. Revelation 21: 2
And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. … ( once again the same as my question, the first heaven, and the first earth were passed away. Now we do not have to go to those old Tabernacles
(churches) that was passed away. We now have the tabernacle of God dwelling inside of us, the Holy Ghost. Praise the Lord for this New Jerusalem. That old Jerusalem has passed away or deceased to be
with the true people of God. We now have the New Jerusalem, which will be forever and never pass away.
