John 3:16: Eternity Awaits You

He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end. Ecclesiastes 3:11

For thus says the High and Lofty One Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: “I dwell in the high and holy place, With him who has a contrite and humble spirit, To revive the spirit of the humble, And to revive the heart of the contrite ones. Isaiah 57:15

3 Gifts of God That Make All the Difference

Grace, love, and fellowship from the Prince of Peace, Mighty God and Eternal Father, and our Wonderful Counselor – for you and me!

Mount of Olives - 1Looking up the present-day Mount of Olives.

Then the multitudes who went before and those who followed cried out, saying: “Hosanna to the Son of David! ‘Blessed is He who comes in the name of the LORD!’ Hosanna in the highest!” Matthew 21:9

5 Reasons to Cling to God’s Word

Forever, O LORD, your word is firmly fixed in the heavens.
Your faithfulness endures to all generations;
you have established the earth, and it stands fast.

By your appointment they stand this day,
for all things are your servants.
Psalm 119:89-91

Sixty-six books, 40 authors, yet God-breathed, 2 Timothy 3:16,

We marvel when God promises One who will pay the price for their sin and the sins of future generations, so that their relationship will be restored with God.
