Tag Archives: God’s eternal nature

“Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our ‘God is a consuming fire.’”  (Hebrews 12:28-29, NIV)

The disciple of Jesus may inhabit the sands of time, but her destiny is firmly established on the bedrock of eternity.  Although she is a temporary resident of earth, she is a permanent citizen of heaven.

Were we to survey the history of the world with a perspective of centuries or of millennia — instead of years, as we commonly do — we would more clearly see that all kingdoms and dynasties are temporary.  We would also see that the kingdom of God, and the word of God, are enduring.

For this reason, give thanks for God’s gift of a kingdom that cannot be shaken; for a king that cannot be bought; for a future that is certain, and that grows brighter with each passing day.  – Luther

“’I am the Alpha and the Omega,’ says the Lord God, ‘who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.'” (Revelation 1:8, NIV)

As we begin another week, it is good to remember not only what others say about God, but what God says about God: “I am. . .”

As finite beings — whose existence is circumscribed by days, months, and years — our only security is in One who transcends both time and space; and exists with supreme potency: Omnipotence! To place our trust in anyone or anything else is to court disappointment.

God is worthy of our total trust because He always has been and always will be the supreme power. Let him be the bookend of every moment, day and month until we move from time to eternity. – Luther
