“Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away.” (Luke 21:33 HCSB)

Jesus’ words.

Jesus: “Heaven and earth will pass away.  My words will never pass away.  They are more permanent than even what you see around you.”  This is an amazing statement because at the time that Jesus spoke them, to think that the earth or heaven would pass away was not cognitively possible.  Earth was too massive, too regular, how could it ever “pass away.”

Now we understand that everything is passing away, at least in a material sense.  It waits for eternity to prove that Jesus’ words will never pass away.  I believe they will not; that when he said here that they are more permanent than earth and heaven, he meant exactly what he said.  Amazing to contemplate.
