Eternal Life | How long will I live for |
How long is eternal life? A God-given picture of the length of eternal life is below!
Death is only a door. How long will you live?
In this article is a God-given picture of the length of Eternity (Eternal Life) which is a big part of what the gospel is really all about. Do you really have any idea of how long "eternal" is? The following scripture had always intrigued me as a young man because I understood that you could never find west going east and you could never find east going west. I also knew I still had no inkling of how far that really was.
As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.
I had understood that physical life can be represented as a distance. So during my experience with God in 1980, this curiosity came to the surface. At one point I had seen myself speaking to a rather large church in a vision. I found this hard to believe, especially because this is not something I enjoyed doing, by any means. The Lord had been showing me things concerning salvation unto eternal life. So one day I asked, "Lord, if I am to speak to the people about salvation, will You give me something to tell them about eternal life? I can't even comprehend in my mind how far the East is from the West."
The Lord said.,
"Take the surface of the Earth. Let that represent eternal life. Now take a pin and prick the ground. That pin prick represents your present life."
The Lord asked, "How many pin pricks does it take to cover the Earth?"
I was astonished, because I knew that it would take zillions upon zillions of pin pricks to cover the earth! That would be zillions upon zillions of our present life spans! To top that, He then asked, "What happens when you start the pin into the earth next to the prick you just made?"
I saw this,
I could see that when the pin started into the earth next to the prick just made, it started to fill the original hole. As more pricks were made around it, the hole becomes completely filled in. If you were to try to cover the Earth with pin
pricks, you wouldn't ever get outside a square inch because the pin pricks would be continually filled back in. And the Lord said to cover the earth.
What an analogy! "How long will I live?" or "How long is eternal life?" has just been illuminated for us by God!
