The Word, Age
Jesse M. Hendley
We want to study now the word "age," or "eternity." In
the Greek it is aion, and from it we get our word
"eon." This is a wonderful word! I love to think about
Eternity and God and spiritual things. Every real
Christian does. It is not to be morbid and downcast
and morose to think about eternity. We are to think
about eternity with JOY! God created us for eternity,
and we are going to live unto the ages of eternity.
God has a blessing for us in this study of the word
The Kingdom, Power And Glory
The first reference to this word in the Greek New
Testament is found in Matthew 6:13 at the close of the
great prayer Jesus taught us to pray. "Thine is the
kingdom, and the power and the glory, FOREVER." That
word "forever" in the Greek means "unto the ages."
"Thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory UNTO
THE AGES," a strong phrase that has to do with
eternity. "The ages." It is translated simply,
This word carries the sense of "eternity." The kingdom
is His FOREVER. The power, the power to rule over all
and bring righteousness, is His forever. The glory,
the honor, the splendor, is His forever.
It is through Christ that man is redeemed. In the
Garden of Eden, man chose the devil rather than God.
Jesus came to redeem man back to God. It has been a
long process. He had to give His life on the Cross to
do it. He now operates through His Holy Spirit to
bring men the Gospel. But Jesus did it, and to Him
shall be the honor. He shall come again and establish
God's kingdom on this earth. Then after His rule of a
thousand years, putting all enemies beneath His feet,
He will deliver up the kingdom unto God the Father
that God may be all and in all. (I Cor. 15.)
The Unpardonable Sin
The next passage is Matthew 12:32. We read about the
unpardonable sin here. It shall not be forgiven,
neither in this world nor in the world to come.
