“Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the whole world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.” (Ps.90:2 NIV) To realize that God will exist and rule for eternity, I can comprehend. However, to understand this God of the Bible has existed for eternity past, is hard to grasp.  We humans think in the realm of time, but never having a beginning is a challenge.. What a wonderful God who reveals himself and personally touches our lives. “The eternal God is our refuge and underneath are the everlasting arms.” (Deut.33:27)

Moses, the great leader of Israel, asked God to show him his glory. (Ex.33:18-19) God shows Moses the afterglow of himself. “The LORD, the LORD, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin.. Yet, he does not leave the guilty unpunished,”(Ex:34:6-7)  Immediately Moses bowed to the ground and worshiped

What an experience and revelation Moses had!  He had a glimpse of the eternal God. Now, through Jesus Christ, we to can have a glimpse and continual understanding of God. Not just a mental picture through words, but a greater and greater revelation of God.  Throughout all eternity, we will grow in our understanding of this great one; his love and faithfulness. Throughout all the ages to come, on and on eternally, we will experience the riches of God’s grace.because of Christ.(Eph.2:7)  .     

This begins now as we turn to Christ for forgiveness and receive eternal life through him.

It is such a wonderful gift from God, that we can only receive by his unmerited favor, his grace. Now is the time to receive this tremendous blessing that will last forever. It is offered to all, no matter what your background. Whoever comes to Christ receives this freely.
