Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. Matthew 24:25
Jesus was describing various end time things that would occur. These events are disasters that will occur in the world prior to His return. They are to be signs that His return is getting closer. He then states that the heavens and earth will pass away, but what He has said never will.
Looking at the earth and the stars in the sky, they both appear to have been here forever and will remain here forever. Both have survived longer than anything man has made, so it makes sense to have the feeling that they will last forever. However, that is not true.
Mountains and hills have worn down. Lakes and rivers have dried up. Forests have died. Animals have died off. Stars have exploded. There is a wearing down of all creation. None of it will last forever.
Nothing that man has made has lasted forever. Some things have lasted thousands of years, but are wearing down, slowly eroding. Castles, that once were grand and magnificent, are now laying in ruins. Buildings are slowly crumbling down or falling apart.
People live and die daily. No one lives forever on this earth.
The one thing that remains the same and still in existence is the words of God. Over the centuries, many have tried to destroy the bible and wipe it out. Governments have tried to quiet the voice of believers around the world. Yet, despite all the attempts to stop God’s word, it continues to survive and grow.
All of the promises of God have either come true or will come true at some point in the future. With all of the promises located in the bible that have already come true, there is no reason to think that the rest will not come true.
As you begin to realize how eternal God’s word is, you can realize how faithful He is. You will know how much truth is being said in the words of Jesus.
While it will be true that disaster will come upon this earth before His return, it is also true that He will provide for all of your needs. His love for you will never end. He will provide the salvation needed for your soul, if you believe in Jesus.
The words of Jesus are eternal, believe in them.
I pray today that you will know what Jesus said; that you will believe in the words of Jesus; that you will find comfort in the words of God; and that you will trust the words of God.
