Moreover, eternity has synonyms which might help to some small degree in understanding what it is. They are: infinity, perpetuity, endlessness, timelessness, age without end, forever, ceaseless, everlasting, enduring, continuous as in a circle, incessant, relentless, interminable, uninterrupted, unceasing, unremitting, round-the-clock, nonstop, constant, etc.
Have you ever pondered how long eternity is? Perhaps one could get a slight glimpse of eternity if he would try to calculate the number of leaves that has ever grown on every plant and tree since God's creation and multiply that huge number times 10,000. If each unit was a year, that alone would be a staggering number, but it still isn't close enough to the concept of eternity. Much more needs to be considered. Let's add to that value another one produced by multiplying every hair that ever grew on every person, from the creation of Adam to present, times 10,000. To that we should next multiply 10,000 times every grain of sand along all of the seashores and coastlines throughout the entire world. To this we then should add the number produced by multiplying 10,000 times every snowflake and raindrop that ever fell from the creation of the world. But then this is still much too small a number! To that we should multiply 10,000 times every dust molecule that has ever floated in the air that is far too small for us see with the naked eye. And add to that number 10,000 times every star in all of the innumerable galaxies in the universe. But even then, if all those incalculably large numbers were added together and that number would be years as we know it now, that could only be the first second in eternity!
You face a very long eternity beyond the
grave, which is so long you cannot
even come close to humanly comprehending it.
In other words, you face a very long eternity beyond the grave, which is so long you cannot even come close to humanly comprehending it. You will spend all that time either in an unquenchable and raging fire prepared for the devil and his angels (Mt. 3:12; Heb. 10:27 cf. Mt. 25:41) or in a paradise kingdom where love, joy, purity and peace with continue on forever in the presence of the holy, holy, holy God Himself (Lk. 23:43; Isa. 35:10; Rev. 21:4,27; Psa. 37:11; Rom. 2:7).
Remember this: Your most precious possession is NOT your house, car, job, marriage, bank account, health, reputation, etc. It is your eternal SOUL. Regarding the soul, the Lord asked the following questions:
What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, yet forfeit his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul? (Mark 8:36,37)
We have come to share in Christ IF we hold firmly TILL THE END the confidence we had at first. (Heb. 3:14)You need to get saved and stay saved. Many don't and die spiritually. Staying saved, which doesn't always happen, is just as necessary to enter the Kingdom of God as getting saved initially (Mt. 10:22; Rev. 2:10,11). And remember this: If you are like the majority, your physical death will be the beginning of everlasting torment and regret (Mt. 7:13,14 cf. Mt. 25:46; Lk. 16:19-31). On the other hand, if you are of the few who have a trusting, submitting and enduring faith in Jesus, your inevitable physical death will be the beginning of Paradise forever (Phil. 1:21-23). It is only the pure in heart who will see God (Mt. 5:8). You are deciding for yourself now, where you will spend eternity. Make sure you do the right thing. This can be accomplished by reading through the Bible and changing your beliefs and behavior accordingly. Real Christians put God's word into practice (Lk. 8:21; Mt. 7:24). It is your choice, but it is also your eternity.
