For Ever and Ever
Updated: Feb 11, 2022
FOR EVER. It is hard to fathom something that is never-ending, always. It is interesting to note that the word ‘forever’ does not appear in God’s Word (KJB), but the two words ‘for’ and ‘ever’ appear thousands of times, including ‘for ever and ever’.
One of the Greek translations for the word ‘forever’ as an adverb is: πάντα - (duration) for all time, for all eternity; for an infinite amount of time. The same Greek translation is used for the word ‘ever’ and is defined as ‘always’. The adverb ‘always’ (same Greek translation) is defined as ‘at all times’. Each word, each letter, each jot and tittle in the Bible are there because God put them there, He wanted them there. Suffice it to say that God loves us at least for ever and ever! Mankind may fail us, but our God will not fail us, even if we fail Him. He loves unconditionally!
Psalms 119:89 - “LAMED. For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.” Exodus 15:18 - “The LORD shall reign for ever and ever.” Hebrews 13:8 - “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.” Galatians 1:3-5 – “Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ, 4 Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father: 5 To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.”

And by the grace of God we will carry on. His love endures forever! Sing praise, sing praise! Forever God is faithful, forever God is strong. God is with us …Forever!
