Day 128

The last few days I’ve been writing about one of my favorite verses in the Bible, Isaiah 9:6.  I am really enjoying going through each prophetic name of Jesus found in that verse.  

Today I got some really awesome revelation on Jesus, our Everlasting Father.

Everlasting Father is literally translated “The Father Of Eternity.”  Which makes perfect since.  God is our father, but Jesus is the father of our eternity.  His death and resurrection gave birth to eternal life.  Everyone living is an eternal being and Jesus, only Jesus, is the deciding factor on an eternity in heaven or one in hell.

I have thought more about heaven this year than any other year of my life.  I never imagined that a piece of me would be there before I was.  Over the summer the spirit of my precious baby boy left my womb and entered into eternity before I got to meet him here on earth.  As heart wrenching as that is, I find great comfort in knowing that when his tiny heart stopped beating, that it wasn’t the end of him.  His spirit lives on eternally, because of Jesus who is the Everlasting Father of Eternity.

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

What is the gift of God?  It’s Jesus!  He gave His only son.  So you could read Romans 6:23 like this, The wages of sin is death, but Jesus is eternal life!

After losing a son I feel like I understand a little bit more just how big of a sacrifice sending Jesus to the earth was for His father.  It was hard for us when we found out about Felix and we had never even met him.  Jesus on the other hand had been by His fathers side since the beginning of the beginning.  He was God’s only son and He gave Him up for us.  It’s because of that gift I get to spend eternity in heaven with God and with Jesus and with Felix.  I can’t think of a better gift than that.  I’m so glad I called upon the name of Jesus whose name is called Father Of Eternity.
