How Will the First Heaven and the First Earth Pass Away?

Revelation 21:1 (ESV)

1 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more.

The book of Revelation doesn’t mention how the first order will pass away. 2 Peter 3:10–13 tells that this world will pass away by fire.
