Attributes of God- Eternality

Let's get going......
Eternality!!  What a word!  So if we look at the word and really start thinking it through.  Let's start with something simple like a definition. 

According to Webster's Dictionary...
Eternality- Without beginning or end of existence; always existing,
                  Without end of existence or duration; everlasting; endless; immortal.
                  Continued without intermission; perpetual; ceaseless; constant.
                  Existing at all times without change; immutable.

Just putting those words together on paper and thinking and really letting them sit in your mind.  Every single word is such a description of God Himself.  It is almost overwhelming.  Let's make this simple.  Consider the following....
God is without beginning or end of existence.
God is always existing.
God is everlasting.
God is endless.
God is immortal.
God is continued without intermission
God is ceaseless.
God is constant.
God is existing at all times without change.
God is immutable.

We could take each one of those sentences could be memorized and recalled at those difficult times in our lives.  To think and understand that the Creator, The Almighty has always been here. He will always be here.  He doesn't take a break.  He never stops.  He never changes.  He is constant! 
Oh my goodness!  So this is a great explanation of the word but let's dig in and find some scripture.  Always back up your learning and study with scripture.  So let's dig a little more and find out what His word has to say about His Eternality. 

Exodus 3:14 — And God said to Moses, "I AM WHO I AM."
Psalm 102:12 — But You, O Lord, shall endure forever, and the remembrance of Your name to all generations.
Hebrews 13:8 — Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

I love digging in His Word!  It is so very rich!  These are just a few of the scriptures that you can find!  I loved doing this and so thankful for Amanda suggesting it.  If you have more that you would like to share on this topic, please feel free to share in the comment section.  You are also more than welcome to reach me by e-mail at joyinthejourney2012@gmail.com
