The Names of God Series: EL OLAM (THE EVERLASTING GOD)
Meaning and Derivation: El is another name that is translated as "God" and can be used in conjunction with other words to designate various aspects of God's character. Olam derives from the root word 'lm (which means "eternity"). Olam literally means "forever," "eternity," or "everlasting". When the two words are combined - El Olam - it can be translated as "The Eternal God." [BlueLetterBible]
And Abraham planted a grove in Beersheba, and called there on the name of the LORD, the everlasting God.
But the LORD is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king: at his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation.
Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock. For he has humbled the inhabitants of the height, the lofty city. He lays it low, lays it low to the ground, casts it to the dust. The foot tramples it, the feet of the poor, the steps of the needy.
Forever - Through eternity; through endless ages, eternally. At all times; always.
Eternity - Infinite duration, without beginning in the past or end in the future; also, duration without end in the future; endless time.
Everlasting - "Everlasting," in strictness, is that which endures forever; either that which has no beginning and will have no end (in which sense it is applicable to God only), or that which, having a beginning, will have no end, but henceforth will exist forever (thus of beings created for immortality.
God was, is, and will forever be. It is as simple as that. God is the life-force in everything. If He was not, we would be not. All About God has a nice writing on our Everlasting God (loaded with scripture), and I urge you to take a gander.
To be a follower of Christ takes faith, to believe in the unseen, to trust in the unknown, but it is so very worth it. Will suddenly your life become problem free? No, but despite your troubles you will have a peace, and calmness that is only provided by the Spirit of God. You will have the assurance knowing that when your time on this globe is done, you will live out eternity with the Creator of it all, and His Son who came to save you. It is promised to believers, then at this time there will be no more sorrow, no more pain (Revelations).
If you are reading this and have doubts of God, I hope that your eyes may be open to the Truth. May someone be brought into your life to encourage you in the faith, and to answer any questions you have, or that you are prompted to seek them out using the Google machine (scripture search).
We give thanks to you God for all that you have done, are doing, and will do. Yours be the glory forever. In the name of your son, Jesus.
