THE CONSCIOUSNESS OF ETERNITY
By DIGC12 December 2020
The devil does not mind how successful we are on earth for as long as we don’t think about eternity.
SCRIPTURE: Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh. Matthew 25:13
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The consciousness of eternity makes people to be cautious in time.
One of the things that seems to have been forgotten in our generation today is the consciousness of eternity. People are always conscious of the cares of this life but they don’t seem to be conscious of eternity; they are conscious of their daily needs but they are not conscious of heaven and hell. And this is not supposed to be so because it is the consciousness of eternity that makes people to be cautious in time.
Now, one of the easiest things any pastor can do is to preach people into excitement. As a pastor, it is easy to give keys for earthly progress and prosperity; it is easy to make people excited so they can commend your message as a powerful one. But the greatest help anybody can do to a fellow human being is to point them to the reality of eternity; that is, the reality of heaven and hell.
We live in days where the devil is fighting with all his strength to blindfold people to the reality of the afterlife.
Take note of this: The devil does not mind how successful we are on earth for as long as we don’t think about eternity. The devil does not mind how many results or achievements we have, how many things we are able to get by faith in this world as long as we don’t live in the consideration of eternity.
Beloved, a time will come when our breathing will stop and all the organs in our body will stop functioning. Then, we will appear before God in eternity. At that time, the money we have in our account, the car we drive, the dress we wear, etc. will not matter. What will matter then will be the investment we have made in our spirit and into eternity.
Beloved, receive the grace to be conscious of eternity always, in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: The consciousness of eternity makes people to be cautious in time
- Always live with eternity in view.
- Do not do anything that will jeopardise your eternity with God.
- Maintain your relationship with God always through consecration and upright living.
PRAYER: Thank You Lord for showing me the path of life. Help me to live daily in the consciousness of eternity, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

AMAZING FACT: The average human body contains enough sulphur to kill all the fleas on the average dog, enough carbon to make 900 pencils, enough potassium to fire a toy cannon, enough fat to make seven bars of soap and enough water to fill a 50-litre barrel.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: Grace to run the race be released upon you in Jesus’ Name.
