2 Peter 3:10: "But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up."
'Day of the Lord' here describes the end-time events, the Second Coming. At the end of this age in the day of the Lord's judgment, the heavens will pass away with a great noise and the elements will melt, presumably by fire. Peter's description requires the unlimited power of God in dissolving the very elements of the universe, from which He will create a new heaven and new earth.
