I find it interesting that the word eternity appears only once in the scriptures shown in the verse below. In the verse below we see that God inhabits, dwells, lives, makes His permanent abode in eternity. 

Isa 57:15 For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.  

There is neither beginning nor end to eternity; it is perpetual, timeless, and everlasting.   My thoughts are that when the original sin was committed and man broke eternal relationship with God and that time on earth began. Jesus said that I am the Alpha and Omega the beginning and the end. We come to the cross and make our decision to accept the eternal sacrifice or reject it. On the cross Jesus cried; It is finished! In the beginning was the Word and in the end the Word finished His work.   You will become one with something.

Jesus prayed the most beautiful prayer recorded in John Chapter 17 explaining who God is, who He is and what we should become as well stating that He was praying for those who believed and He was praying for those who believed to become one with Him as He was with the Father. The Word is Eternal, it went before us and reached back for us for those of us who have an ear to hear….He calls us to be one… if you answer you have chosen a narrow path and it leads to eternity. God is exalted, we humble ourselves by exalting His Name, He inhabits that praise, He breathes life into us and we become a part of eternity. 

When we die to self, we experience ultimate humility recognizing that the servant is not greater than His master. For our Master became a servant and was lifted up dying that we might live. O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing. I cannot put it all into words to fitly describe what I am experiencing this morning.
