When Time Shall Be No More

Our souls were created by God to last forever. Every person who has ever lived will exist for all eternity in either Heaven or Hell. Hell is reserved for those who say “no,” to Him Who said “yes” to the Cross. Heaven will be the home for those whom the Lord has graciously saved from their sins. The thought of hell lasting forever is understandably horrible. But what about Heaven?

Sure, Heaven will be a wonderful place, but, to our finite minds, eternity seems so long. Anything that lasts forever is bound to get boring after a while. But it is not so with Heaven. For in Heaven, those who belong to the Lord will never tire of marveling at His glory, of exploring the endless mysteries and majesties of His Gospel, of fellowshipping with His saints, or with discovering the unending truths of His Word. That’s right, the Bible will be in Heaven. (I Peter 1:25)

When the Lord Jesus asked His disciples, “Have ye understood all these things?” it amazes me that they answered, “Yea, Lord.” (Matthew 13:51) We might excuse them for their enthusiasm, but our understanding of the depth and richness of God’s Word should remind us that every one of us who has been taught from the Scriptures, and would teach others in turn, “is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old.” (Matthew 13:52) It is always good to remember and repeat the lessons we have learned from the Bible, but we must be constantly digging deeper to bring out the treasures which God has given us from the foundation of the world, but which ever seem new to us.

  1. Isn’t it wonderful to know that we who put our faith in Christ will live with him in a place that is so awesome that our minds can’t contain it now! Unending days with our Lord, free from the evil that comes against us is a promise that is worth suffering through our momentary problems now.
