Why Is God Called The "Eternal?"

Filed under: God — melchia @ 2:49 pm

Why is God called the “Eternal?” When He introduced Himself to Moses, He revealed His name to be “I Am That I Am.” (Exod. 3:13-15). That means God has always existed and always will exist.

God was here for an eternity before anything else existed (Psalm 90:1-2). Can you imagine a thousand years going by as one day? (Psalm 90:4). God definitely sees time differently than we do. He “inhabits” eternity (Isaiah 57:15) — He isn’t bound by time. That means He can even reverse time, as shown in scripture.

It’s hard to imagine such a thing because as physical beings, we are bound to time and our own time on earth is extremely short. We are all like little children compared to the Eternal and need to be humble before Him (Rev. 1:8).
