I was reading about the end-time events in Matthew 24, when I came upon this verse; Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away. Matt 24:35
That is a powerful statement and I see something else in it; change, no change!
For thousands of years the earth, and we who inhabit it, have been changing.
This is not the same planet that Moses, David, or Paul walked.
It has been carved into, mountains blown up, dams built, buildings erected, roads stretching far and wide; so much has changed down here that we’ve began putting things up there (in space) to make life better down here.
Satellites constant circle the globe for weather, entertainment, and espionage.
Yet through it all, God’s word hasn’t change. Perhaps the inhabitants of this planet have changed the meaning and interpretation from time to time, but God hasn’t.
What He meant for it to say from the beginning, He still means for it to say at the end.
And while His word speaks of the day in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up (2 Peter 3:10), His word will still be intact and untouched.
You will continue on your journey to grow older and older and older (don’t look so sad) until you finally expire.
God’s word doesn’t age or die.
The next generation will come and go; and God’s word will still be around.
So while you and the Word are around together, get reacquainted!
