John 17:3(KJV); And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent
Eternity is a world. In Ecclesiastes 3:11, the Bible says, “He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart.” The Hebrew word for world therein is also interpreted to mean, eternity.
The sad irony of Christian living is that there are those who received eternal life but the world of eternity is closed to them. They carry a life that can only find expression in another world but cannot manifest that life because their consciousness of worlds is limited to this present world.
They are those that Paul speaks of in Ephesians 4:18, who are like Gentiles, alienated from the life of God. This alienation is not because they don’t have the life but because they don’t know the world in which that life works.
They confess that they have eternal life, they sing praises about this life they carry however, they are both ignorant and indifferent to the world of eternity.
It is eternal life to know God. This means that the world of eternity starts to open up to you depending on your knowledge of God.
In Hebrews 11:3, the Bible says that the worlds were made by the word of God. Eternity is part of those worlds.
Only the Word can unlock the doors of eternity to you, throw open its windows, lead you across its streets and show you its pillars and foundations.
Study the Word with the consciousness that it is a gate to another world. Read it in this understanding. Seek intimacy with God in this wisdom.
