Words of Comfort: Eternity is eternal.

“How long is eternity? Someday you theists will look back on your words and feel embarrassed.” Richard Notizia

Embarrassed? Never. The Bible says, “Whoever calls upon the name of the Lord shall not be ashamed.” This short life is filled with pain, futility, aging, and then the surety of death—and with this life there is a little joy here and there. In reality, each of us isn’t searching for happiness; rather, we are fighting off unhappiness. We are constantly barraged with problems, sickness and pain. Dentists, doctors, lawyers, and undertaker’s have secure jobs in this life.  

But as Christians, we have been given everlasting life, and we are eagerly waiting for God's Kingdom to come to this earth and for His will to be done on this earth as it is in Heaven. That means new bodies with no more futility, aging, tears, pain, suffering or death. God seals those that love Him with the Holy Spirit as a token of good faith. That’s how we can “know” we have everlasting life. When that day comes the Bible says that God will withdraw the dimension of a time, and we enter "eternity." I hope today you’ll join us. See for details.
