THE CONCEPT OF ETERNITY

We cannot ever imagine

Or even comprehend,

The length and width of eternity

That will never ever end.

It surpasses every ticking moment

Of the clock that’s bound by time;

It will never cease nor be erased

Where no finish line we find.

It is mind-blowing and overwhelming

To think that once we have arrived,

That no boundaries can ever be crossed

The moment that we die.

Because the soul will live forever

Since it’s our invisible life within,

Which needs to be reconciled to God

And cleansed from all our sin.

It is wise that we should examine

The condition of our soul,

And discover whether we are really saved

So the truth it will unfold.

There’s no point in trying to impress

Or to fit in with society,

Because unless Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior

God’s judgement we will see.

Imagine being in torment

Where the worm will never die,

It would be the most horrendous fate a soul can see

Since we know it’s not a lie.

Jesus spoke of eternity

With explicit warnings as well,

With the dangers of unspeakable horrid

And the consequences of hell.

Jesus carried hell on His shoulders

When He walked to Calvary,

To crucify our sinful ways

So eternal damnation we may not see.

It was through the Father’s mercy

That Jesus died on that wretched cross,

To reconcile those who will receive Him

So there’s no eternal loss.
