It may be difficult for our human psyche to grasp the word everlasting. Our finite minds just cannot completely understand. It is forever and forever and forever…
I am reading Isaiah and part of this morning’s reading was Chapter 51:9-11:
“9 Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of the LORD; awake, as in the ancient days, in the generations of old. Art thou not it that hath cut Rahab, and wounded the dragon?
10 Art thou not it which hath dried the sea, the waters of the great deep; that hath made the depths of the sea a way for the ransomed to pass over?
11 Therefore the redeemed of the LORD shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head: they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away.”
Now if those words do not get your hearts pounding with great hope for our eternal destiny as children of God Jehovah, I don’t know what ever would! And look at the last phrase – “sorrow and mourning shall flee away.” What great hope we have in God’s wonderful promises!
