What do we meant when we say that God is eternal?
The word eternal means “everlasting, having no beginning and no end.”
Ps 90:2 Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou [art] God.
The above verse tells us about God’s eternality. Since humans measure everything in time, it is very hard for us to conceive of something that had no beginning, but has always been, and will continue forever. However, the Bible does not try to prove God’s existence or His eternality, but simply begins with the statement “In the beginning God…”, indicating that at the beginning of recorded time, God was already in existence. From duration stretching backward without limit to duration stretching forward without limit, from eternal ages to eternal ages, God was and is forever.
God refers to Hinself as “Iam”, was, is, and is to come (eternal).
The Bible is consistent in this teaching and it is a fundemental step of faith to allow this to be one of your foundational building blocks.
Prayer: Lord, help us to believe that you are eternal and that you have created all things.
Gen 1;1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
