Worlds Without End

To God be the Glory

There are many reasons to love this verse. But one in particular excites me: Because the original Greek phrase “eon of the eons” means endless time, it’s usually translated “forever and ever.” But since eon also means “world,” the phrase means endless worlds, as well–literally both at once.

There’s only one modern term that means both ages and worlds: space-time. It was invented when quantum physicists discovered that time and space were a single thing. In other words: Without space, there’s no time, and without time, there’s no space. The Big Bang theory says space-time had a beginning (so does the Bible). And before that? Many think a different space-time existed. And after this one? The Apostle Peter and the book of Revelation say there’ll be “a new heavens and a new earth.” Another Bang? Maybe. And what about the theory of multiverses? Past, present, future–they’re all the same to quantum physicists. And to God, who invented them (physics and physicists).

But then the Bible’s been telling us that for, well, eons.

So to God be the glory

forever and ever

worlds without end!

    Strange! too many in the physical world are so willing to believe what they heard and never saw but stand fast against the word of God to the last, right up instill the moment they past.

    Love that verse too.

    Though, my favorite quote is the Proverbs 31 woman.

    “She is clothed with strength and dignity;
        she can laugh at the days to come.
    She speaks with wisdom,
        and faithful instruction is on her tongue.”
