 . . .And the One seated on the throne said: “Look! I am making all things new"

What does this scripture mean to you?

The question for me is What are the things that are going to make new...Could be the new creation..ie the 144000..or is it mankind in general..being made new in the flesh.a return to youthful vitality..or something else..just a thought

Thanks for the replies.
I am always pondering this scripture so I wondered what thoughts others may have. Interestingly verse 6 follows with "They have come to pass" So from God's point of view what is to be made new already has been made new.
If we accept that time does not exist for Jehovah and he had no beginning and no end everything is already in existence. Only as humans are we aware of the passage of time with one event leading to another. We look at things as a time line going from left to right. Jehovah must see things in existence diffently. I can't imagine how, of course,  but maybe as some kind of matrix of varying layers that morph into each other all occurring at the same "time" given that actually time does not exist in the matrix. So making all things new must mean that the existence of what is new is not from Gods point of view but from our point of view. So in the matrix what is to come from our point of view is already in existence. But what is it? Making "new" could mean going back to the original state that Adam was in ( and of course when Eve was created too) But is that something "new"? That situation has already existed so maybe "new" refers to a different layer in the matrix that has not yet come into the human time line. What was God's plan (or should I say purpose?) after Eve was made. Obviously to populate the Earth. But what would happen when the Earth was filled to capacity? What were all the people who would have been born perfect have in store for them? Just living in paradise, tilling the soil forever? Would there have been an end to childbirth after the Earth was filled with perfect humans?
There must be more to God's purpose than that, surely.
So after taking action to rid this world of wickedness, and restraining  Satan and the demons for the thousand years and the resurrection completed, new scrolls opened..what then. Is that when the next part of the matrix comes into play?

Well that is an interesting thought, but on what do you base you permise that mankind will turn to space.
How will that be done? Do you want to travel in a metal tube to Mars. Not for me. I agree that maybe there is a purpose for the universe other than helping us to understand the power of Jehovah and give glory to him, but is this what is meant by making all things new? (Psalm 115:16)
