    Eternity in My Heart

    Joshua O'Sullivan
    Eternity In My Heart

    Ecclesiastes 3:11 (NIV)
    11 He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.
    ‭‭伝道者の書‬ ‭3:11‬ ‭JCB‬‬

    Romans 1:20 (NIV)
    20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
    ‭‭ローマ人への手紙‬ ‭1:20‬ ‭JCB‬‬

    Eternity is Real

    2 Corinthians 4:16-18 (NIV)
    16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.
    17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.
    コリント人への手紙Ⅱ‬ ‭4:16-18‬ ‭JCB
    16「ですから、私たちは決して落胆しません。肉体はしだいに衰えますが、うちにある力は日ごとに強くなっていきます。 17今の私たちの苦しみや悩みは、結局のところ、取るに足りないものであり、それほど長くは続きません。そして、このつかの間の苦しみは、永遠に尽きない、あふれるばかりの神の祝福をもたらすのです。

    18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

    What We Believe, Determines Our Eternity

    John 3:36 (NIV)
    36 Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on them.
    ‭‭ヨハネの福音書‬ ‭3:36‬ ‭JCB‬‬

    Knowing Jesus Is The Only Way Eternal Life

    John 17:2-3 (NIV)
    2 For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him.
    3 Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.
    ‭‭ヨハネの福音書‬ ‭17:2-3‬ ‭JCB‬‬
    「地上のすべての人を支配する権威をわたしに下さったので、こうして、あなたから任せられた一人一人に、永遠のいのちを与えられるのです。 ただ一人のまことの神であるあなたと、あなたがこの地上にお遣わしになったわたしを知ること、それが永遠のいのちを得る道です。」

    Live With Eternity in Your Heart

    1.Live With A Eternal Perspective

    2.Live for Others

    Matthew 25:44-46 (NIV)
    44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’
    ‭マタイの福音書‬ ‭25:44-46‬ ‭JCB‬‬

    45 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’
    46 “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”
    ‭45 そこで、わたしはこう言います。『あなたがたが、これらの一番小さい者たちを助けようとしなかったのは、わたしを助けなかったのと同じです。』46 こうして、この人たちは永遠の刑罰を受け、一方、正しい人たちには永遠のいのちが与えられるのです。」」

    Don’t Sacrifice Eternal Glory for Temporary Pleasure

    1 Timothy 6:11-12 (NIV)
    11 But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness,faith, love, endurance and gentleness.
    12 Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confessionin the presence of many witnesses.
    ‭‭テモテへの手紙Ⅰ‬ ‭6:11-13‬ ‭JCB‬‬
    11「テモテよ。あなたは神に仕える者です。ですから、これらすべての悪から逃れて、正しく良いことに熱心に励みなさい。神を信頼し、人を愛し、忍耐強く、ものやわらかな態度を身につけ、 12信仰のために戦い続けなさい。神から与えられた永遠のいのちを、しっかり握っていなさい。あなたは、この永遠のいのちについて、多くの証人の前で堂々と告白したのです。
  • Jesus is coming again - Understand the times.

    Acts 1:9-11 ERV
    [9] After Jesus said this, he was lifted up into the sky. While they were watching, he went into a cloud, and they could not see him. [10] They were staring into the sky where he had gone. Suddenly two men wearing white clothes were standing beside them.
    使徒 1:9-11(ALIVE訳)

    [11] They said, “Men from Galilee, why are you standing here looking into the sky? You saw Jesus carried away from you into heaven. He will come back in the same way you saw him go.”

    1 Chronicles 12:32 NLT
    [32] From the tribe of Issachar, there were 200 leaders of the tribe with their relatives. All these men understood the signs of the times and knew the best course for Israel to take.
    歴代志上 12:32 リビングバイブル

    We don’t know the time, but we do know the signs.

    1.Natural Signs

    Luke 21:25-28 NLT
    [25] "And there will be strange signs in the sun, moon, and stars. And here on earth the nations will be in turmoil, perplexed by the roaring seas and strange tides. [26] People will be terrified at what they see coming upon the earth, for the powers in the heavens will be shaken.
    ルカ 21:25-28(ALIVE訳)

    [27] Then everyone will see the Son of Man coming on a cloud with power and great glory. [28] So when all these things begin to happen, stand and look up, for your salvation is near!"

    2.Decay of Society.

    2 Timothy 3:1-4 Remember this: There are some terrible times coming in the last days. 2 People will love only themselves and money. They will be proud and boast about themselves. They will abuse others with insults. They will not obey their parents. They will be ungrateful and against all that is pleasing to God.
    2テモテ 3:1-4(ALIVE訳)

    3 They will have no love for others and will refuse to forgive anyone. They will talk about others to hurt them and will have no self-control. They will be cruel and hate what is good. 4 People will turn against their friends. They will do foolish things without thinking and will be so proud of themselves. Instead of loving God, they will love pleasure.


    3.Worldwide Spreading of the News of Jesus.

    Matthew 24:14 NLT
    [14] And the Good News about the Kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world, so that all nations will hear it; and then the end will come.
    マタイ 24:14(ALIVE訳)

    Matthew 28:18-20 ERV
    [18] So he came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth is given to me. [19] So go and make followers of all people in the world. Baptize them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. [20] Teach them to obey everything that I have told you to do. You can be sure that I will be with you always. I will continue with you until the end of time."
    マタイ 28:18-20(ALIVE訳)
