An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

Infinity < Everlasting

(Psa 90:2 KJV)  Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.

(Proverbs 29 also read)

One of the attributes of God is that He is eternal.  To be honest, that is beyond our comprehension.  Science has come up with the concept of infinity.  You may be better than I am but I find infinity beyond my comprehension and the amusing part of that is infinity does not even begin to get close to eternity.

I will grant you that the term “everlasting” (5769) is sometimes used to denote things that are comprehendible but the way it is doubled and expressed here is an attempt to express the unexpressible.

So?  Would you really want a God that you could grasp in your mind?  What would that say about God?  What would it say about your mind?  What would it say about your ego?  I am comfortable with my limitations.
