Ecclesiastes 1:4 One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever.
From Generation to Generation
Generation after generation has been on this earth for a little over 6000 years. They come and they go; however, they always seem to go down hill with each subsequent generation. The earth is still here though. It stands fast. It is fearful to see how quickly America has been destroyed in the last 100 years. The wickedness has abounded faster since the time of the flood. We are at a point where it seems like it can’t get worse; however, we know from scripture that it will likely get much worse.
Passing Away or the Rapture
One thing certain in life is death (and likely taxes). We are all going to pass away some day. Nobody is going to live forever unless the rapture happens in our life time. It is very important that we instill Bible principles and teaching into the next generation. That is what will keep the church moving on. The future church is the children of today. We need to put a love for God in the next generation. There is nothing more important and lasting that we can leave behind when we pass on to glory. As the world passes from generation to generation, let’s make sure we leave something with our children that will last, while they are on this earth.
