10 Things We Know About Eternity.


The Bible devotes much more space to convincing people that eternal life is available as a free gift from God than it does to describing eternity.

The Bible's brief descriptions of eternity are more like hints since they use terms and ideas from our present experience to describe what we will not fully grasp until we are there ourselves. The following references hint at aspects of what our future will be like if we have accepted Christ's gift of eternal life.

1. IT WILL BE BEAUTIFUL

Ecclesiastes 3:11 (NIV) says He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.”

2. A PLACE IS PREPARED FOR US

John 14:2-3 (NIV) says My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.”

Note: The King James Version saysIn my Father's house are many mansions:

3. WE WILL BE UNLIMITED BY PHYSICAL PROPERTIES

John 20:19 (NIV) says On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders, Jesus came and stood among them and said, 'Peace be with you!'”

John 20:26 (NIV) says A week later His disciples were in the house again, and Thomas was with them. Though the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, 'Peace be with you!'”

4. WE WILL BE LIKE JESUS

1 John 3:2 (NIV) says Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.”

5. WE WILL HAVE RESURRECTED BODIES

1 Corinthians 15:42-44 (NIV) says So will it be with the resurrection of the dead. The body that is sown is perishable, it is raised imperishable; it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power; it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body.”

1 Corinthians 15:49 (NIV) says “And just as we have borne the image of the earthly man, so shall we bear the image of the heavenly man.”

Revelation 21:1 (NIV) says Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea.”

Revelation 21:3 (NIV) says And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.”

1 Corinthians 13:12 (NIV) says For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.”
