Jesus’ words are eternal

July 8th, 2010

The Bible says in Matthew 24:35, “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away”.

Jesus said these words at the end of a section the NIV titles “Sings of the End of the Age”.  He talks about things happening before He returns.

He talks about things like wars and rumours of wars, people falling away from faith, Christians being deceived, people claiming to be Christ and more.

In other places the Bible also tells us that our world is going to be destroyed by fire (2 Peter 3:7-13) and a new heaven and earth will replace it (Revelation 21:1).

The thing I find interesting in this verse is the thought that even though this world will pass away, Christ’s words ARE eternal!

I find it comforting to know that even though Jesus spoke these words some 2000 years ago…He backs them up eternally. They are forever words!

God Bless,
