God is an eternal being without beginning and without end. The human mind
has trouble grappling with the concept of eternity, as we are finite beings who
can only relate with that which has a beginning and an end. Yet, the eternity of
God is a fundamental tenet of the Judeo-Christian faiths and all believers
believe that God is eternal.
The one-and-only God Himself
addresses this central trait: “I am He, I am the first, I also am the last” (Isaiah 48:12). In
other words, there is no other God, and He, and only He has been God forever:
“Beside me there is no other” (Isaiah 44:6).
Our great God has been
forever and will be forever and ever. Unlike the gods of many religions of the
past, the Christian God is not a created being. There are no multitudes of gods,
making it impossible to know whom the Universal Ruler truly is. The true God is
one and eternal. He is totally wise, totally powerful and totally glorious, and
He alone is worthy of awe and worship. He “inhabits eternity” (Isaiah 57:15),
and he invites us, the created, to join him forever.
