Christ is the visible image of the invisible God and He has revealed what was otherwise incomprehensible; for no person by searching can find out God. “The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may follow all the words of this law” (Deuteronomy 29:29)
Jesus Christ, the One whose name is Everlasting Father, is the manifestation of the Godhead to mankind. Jesus brought to us a knowledge of the everlasting God that would otherwise not be known. The everlasting God saves with an everlasting salvation, loves with an everlasting love and adorns His redeemed people with robes of everlasting righteousness. The everlasting God gives his people the gift of everlasting life.
By virtue of His everlastingness, Christ is immune from the limitations of time. In the magnitude of His might He administers through endless ages. The Everlasting Father is immutable in His will, is immeasurable in His work and is incorruptible in His nature. He is immortal through His name and is limitless in His power, knowledge and presence.
When Abraham first entered Canaan he found the Amorites were already in the land and that marauding kinds were making incursions for purposes of plunder. This caused Abraham to be gripped with the sense of uncertainty and insecurity that dominated the land. Then the Lord appeared to Abraham and made an everlasting covenant with him. This gave Abraham confidence and promoted his trust. He took courage, planted a grove in Beer-Sheba and called on the name of the Lord, the everlasting God. (See Genesis 21:33)
Have we been given anything less to stimulate our hope? Listen intently to these words: “May the God of peace, who through the blood of the everlasting covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing His will, and may He work in us what is pleasing to Him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever” (Hebrews 13:20,21). “The person who does the will of God lives forever” (John 2:17)
Today, let us celebrate the Christ who is the perfect revelation of God the Father.
