Ecclesiastes 3:11 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…3:17 “God will bring into judgment both the righteous and the wicked, for there will be a time for every activity, a time to judge every deed.”….
“Eternity in the human heart”…it’s a given…but is it a choice too? I think so. The verse doesn’t say he has set eternity in “some” human hearts. It’s a bridge everyone will have to cross. This is how I imagine that bridge for the one who has chosen to recognize the promise of eternity in their own heart.
Jesus is on that bridge. He’s waiting to wrap his arms around you securely for this process of judgment, a lot like a parent calming an insecure child. This is not a judgement of punishment but of revelation. It’s the absolute reality of the absolute truth of your life…finally. There will be an Instant Replay of every detail of your life seen through Jesus’ eyes. I’m guessing there will be tears but they’ll be cleansing tears that wash away the last bits of humanity to reveal the promised perfection and complete the transition to eternity.
