He is without beginning or end.
Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever You had formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God (Psalm 90:2).
Before there was a mountain on the earth, God was.
Before there was an earth for the mountain to be on, God was.
Before there was a sun in the sky, God was.
Before there was a sky for the sun to be in, God was.
Before everything, God was.
God has always existed and will always exist.
After the earth is destroyed, God is.
After all the people on earth are gone, God is.
When nothing is left but the eternal, God is.
From everlasting to everlasting, God, You are.
Before I was born, You are.
Every day of my life, You are.
After I die, You are.
God has no beginning, and He has no end.
He is the Beginning and the End.
“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty” (Revelation1:8).
Why does God’s eternality matter to us? Because our existence and eternity depend on His.
We exist because Gods willed to create us. I am not talking generally about mankind; I am talking about each of us as individuals. You exist because God decided you would. I exist because God decided I would.
I have two wonderful grandsons. When my daughter became pregnant with her third child, I hoped for a little girl. But alas, another boy. Who am I to argue or be disappointed? God decided my third grandson would be, and so he is. I cannot wait to meet him.
As God chose for us to exist, we can also live eternally with Him by His choice. All we must do is receive the gift of everlasting life. Jesus came, lived a sinless life, and died for our sin. He was buried and rose again on the third day. Now, He lives forever in heaven at the right hand of God. His resurrection from the dead is proof that He is God. If a god could die, he is not a god. His eternality assures us that He is able to extend eternal life to us.
May we praise the Everlasting God (Genesis 21:33).
Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen 1 Timothy 1:17.
