How Old is God?

Pastor Doug started his January series entitled "Life after Death" this morning with his sermon focusing on the question "How old is God?" The scriptures are Psalm 93:2 :Thou art from everlasting;" Ecclesiastes 3:11 He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God makes from the beginning to the end; and 2 Corinthians 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
Clearly, the sermon speaks to the question How Old is God, but also it really is about eternity and where we will be during that part of it that occurs after our physical death. Life is the :"dressing room" for eternity. Our decisions we make here determine our eternal destination. Life is fragile. There is no guarantee of the time we have on earth. There is more to life than the here and now. When we close our eyes in death, we will open them either in heaven or in hell.

I. God is eternal.
II. The human soul is eternal; a created beginning but with no end.
III. God's judgment is eternal.
They who live in Christ will hear "Well done, good and faithful servant." Those who put not their trust in Christ will hear "Depart from Me."
Christ has already suffered our death by taking our sins upon Himself.
Belief is a matter of the heart. With your mouth confess Jesus Christ as your savior and you shall have eternal life!
