27 Aug Will You Live a Trillion Years?
Anyone that I have asked or will ask that question to routinely and emphatically answers either: No!, No Way!, Are you kidding?, I wish! or Absolutely Not! Yes, it sounds like a non-sensical question and yet it is a very poignant question. You see Genesis 2:7, let’s us know that God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils, the breath of life; and man became a living soul. While people continue to argue mask vs. no mask, vaccine vs. no vaccine; people are leaving here in record numbers due to Covid. My father was such a one in 2020. The bodies of my dad and countless others that are dying due to Covid, other diseases, suicide, and violence will soon return to dust. But what about the other part, the soul? The part that God breathed into.
Let us not forget that Psalm 90:2, says, Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God. So since God is everlasting to everlasting, so is his breath, the breath that was breathed into our souls. Thus our souls are everlasting to everlasting. Everlasting, then, encompasses a trillion years and more.
So, therefore the question should not be WILL we live a trillion years. The question should be WHERE will we live those trillion years (Otherwise known as Eternity)? When time comes to an end, either by death or Jesus’ return, there will only be two addresses, Heaven or Hell. We will ALL live in one of those two addresses for more than a trillion years and that will be just the BEGINNING! We give careful consideration to what community we intend to move to next. We should give the greater consideration to where we will live those trillion years and more. STOP, DROP, and TURN! Stop your sinning! Drop whatever is keeping you from accepting Jesus Christ as your personal savior! Turn to God!
