There is a popular illusion of ETERNITY as the TIME it will take to count every grain of sand in the Sahara Desert. This is grossly erroneous; ETERNITY is the LIFE of God and ETERNAL LIFE, the PROMISE of God to establish us in ETERNITY. The PROMISE was fulfilled in the revelation of God in Jesus Christ, “For IN HIM DWELLETH all the FULNESS OF THE GODHEAD bodily” [Colossians 2:9] ETERNAL LIFE is really ENDLESS LIFE: the LIFE of God we received through  FAITH in Jesus Christ. It has neither BEGINNING or END, as it is written: “Jesus Christ the SAME YESTERDAY, and TO DAY, and FOR EVER” [Hebrews 13:8] ENDLESS LIFE is the LIFE and PRIVILEGES of God in us, “Know ye not that YE ARE THE TEMPLE OF GOD, and that the SPIRIT OF GOD DWELLETH IN YOU?” [1 Corinthians 3:16] 

ENDLESS LIFE can neither be BOUGHT nor BESTOWED by any man or religious organisation, it is received by FAITH in Jesus Christ, "And we know that the SON OF GOD IS COME and hath GIVEN US AN UNDERSTANDING, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son JESUS CHRIST. THIS IS THE TRUE GOD, and ETERNAL LIFE" (1 John 5:20) It is received in this BODY; it is akin to having a jet engine fixed in a battered car. It is true we have the TREASURE of EVERLASTING LIFE, yet TEMPTED and PRESSED by vicissitudes of this world, that the glory might be of God in us, "But we have this TREASURE in earthen vessels, that the EXCELLENCY OF THE POWER MAY BE OF GOD, and not of us. We are TROUBLED ON EVERY SIDE, YET NOT DISTRESSED; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed" ((2 Corinthians 4:7-9)

We wait in HOPE, who have Christ in us, for the appearance of the Lord when we shall dump this BODY and be clothed in heavenly glory, "For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an HOUSE NOT MADE WITH HANDS, ETERNAL IN THE HEAVENS. For in this we GROAN, earnestly desiring to be clothed upon with OUR HOUSE WHICH IS FROM HEAVEN" (2 Corinthians 5:1-2) His COMING is so close, now more than ever is the time to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, be established in ENDLESS LIFE and joined to the company of SAINTS, "... who by PATIENT CONTINUANCE IN WELL DOING seek for glory and honour and IMMORTALITY, ETERNAL LIFE " (Romans 2:7)
