Eternal Words

"He was foreknown before the foundation of the world but was made manifest in the last times for the sake of you who through him are believers in God, who raised him from the dead and gave him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God. Having purified your souls by your obedience to the truth for a sincere brotherly love, love one another earnestly from a pure heart, since you have been born again, not of perishable seed but of imperishable, through the living and abiding word of God; for 'All flesh is like grass and all its glory like the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower falls, but the word of the Lord remains forever.' And this word is the good news that was preached to you." - 1 Peter 1:20-25 ESV

Jesus never had a beginning.

"Jesus said to them, 'Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I am.' " - John 8:58 ESV

What a statement to make.

We sure seem to have a beginning. We have 'earliest memories' and for some they are clear but for others they have jumbled cloudy recollections. The scriptures are clear that souls have no end. They spend eternity somewhere. These bodies are more like grass they have a life cycle... a short one at that.

God has given mankind an eternal vehicle for his everlasting soul. Words. Words that purify and words that multiply. We can be born again by words and those words will provide a structure for a forever life.


"And this word is the good news that was preached to you." - 1 Peter 1:25b ESV

The 'good news' here is one word in the Greek Rhema (Strong's G4487) a living word that illuminates.

Non-believers will get a last word from God and never hear Him again.

"And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity." - Matthew 7:23 KJV

Believer will never get a last word from God. God will be forever speaking.

"His master said to him, 'Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.' " - Matthew 25:23 ESV
