Advent Day 9: Eternity

Wednesday, December 9th

Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the Lord Almighty will accomplish this. – Isaiah 9:7 NIV

Do you ever wake up one day at the end of the month and realize how fast it went by? At this point in the year, do you ever feel like we were just in the middle of the blazing hot summer?
Our perceptions of time are so interesting at times. Sometimes the day drags on, other times it
seems like it takes forever. The same happens when it comes to eternity. There is never an end to eternity. It is beyond all comprehension. If a single grain of rice was a lifetime, would a jar of rice be eternity? Not even close. Would an ocean full of rice represent eternity? Closer, but still not there. The idea that peace, justice, and righteousness ruling over the Earth seems foreign already, but the idea that it will last a lifetime is unfathomable for us. But that is what Christmas is celebrating. Satan was going to lose, and that was becoming more and more apparent to mankind. Christ was going to be seated as our King.
