Eternity: Where God Is “All in All”

800×600

As students of Scripture begin to learn the truth of the eons (or ages), and about bad translations such as “for ever,” “everlasting” and “eternal,” the natural question often arises, “Where do the Scriptures actually talk about real “eternity”?

The answer is a simple one: Nowhere.

Scriptures cover only the scope of human history (i.e., the ages, or eons). “Eternity” is far too much and too deep to burden the human mind. We know eternity exists because death will finally be destroyed and ultimately all men will be made immortal. The Scriptures do speak, however, of the consummation (i.e., end of the ages), when all will be delivered up to God the Father, that He may be “All in all” (I Corinthians 15:28).

So we do know what eternity will be: God, All in all.

This is sufficient revelation concerning eternity!
