The Hebrew word “olam” is mistranslated as “eternal” or “forever”. Which are modern English words that connote something that “never ends” or something that “never changes” or something that “cannot be destroyed” or something that “cannot cease to exist”. Which are not words that exist in the scriptures in the original Hebrew and Greek languages they were written in. Which is why hills and even the moon itself are not “eternal”, for heaven and earth will pass away, thus implying that they will eventually cease to exist, which is contrary to the following mistranslated scriptures.
The blessings of your father excel the blessings of my ancestors and the bounty of the eternal hills. May they rest on the head of Joseph, on the crown of the prince of his brothers.Genesis 49:26
Note: This is a mistranslated version of the verse using the word “eternal”.
Like the moon it shall be established forever, a faithful witness in the skies.” SelahPsalm 89:37
Note: This is a mistranslated version of the verse using the word “forever”.
Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.Matthew 24:35
Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. The earth and the heavens fled from his presence, and there was no place for them.Revelation 20:11
In his days may the righteous flourish, and peace abound, till the moon be no more!Psalm 72:7
Therefore, the correct translation for the Hebrew word “olam” is the English adjective “aeonial” or the adverb “aeonially”, meaning something that lasts a “long time”.
The blessings of your father excel the blessings of my ancestors and the bounty of the aeonial hills. May they rest on the head of Joseph, on the crown of the prince of his brothers.Genesis 49:26
Note: This is a version of the verse correctly translated using the word “aeonial”.
Like the moon it shall be established aeonially, a faithful witness in the skies.Psalm 89:37
Note: This is a version of the verse correctly translated using the word “aeonially”.
Which are based on the English word “aeon”, which is a long period of time with a beginning and an end. Which is why the equivalent Greek adjective for the Hebrew adjective “olam” is the Greek word “aionios”, which also means “aeonial”, not “eternal”, because it is based on the Greek noun “aion”, which means a long period of time with beginning and an end, an “aeon”, which is not “eternal”. And something “aeonial” can not only refer to something that lasts a long time into the future, but also something that existed long ago in the past, “from ancient times” or “from long ages ago”. In which case, the aeons began “in the beginning” of creation, and several noteworthy aeons have passed since then, and we are currently in an evil aeon which is the last one before the second coming of the Mashiach. And then the final aeon of this heaven and this earth is the 1,000 year rulership of the Mashiach on this earth. And then new “aeons of the aeons” will be appointed by God in the new heaven and new earth, with new things for the enjoyment of the people of God.
And whoever should say a word against the son of man, it shall be forgiven him; but the one who should speak against the set-apart airflow, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in the present aeon, nor in the one about to be.Matthew 12:32
Let no one cheat himself! If anyone thinks himself to be wise among you in this aeon, let him become moronish! that he should become wise.1 Corinthians 3:18
above every sovereignty and authority, and power and mastership, and every name named, not only in this aeon, but also in the one about to be.Ephesians 1:21
To the rich in the present aeon, exhort to not be high-minded, nor to hope upon the uncertainty of riches, but in the living God, in the one furnishing to us all things richly for enjoyment;1 Timothy 6:17
correcting us, that denying impiety and the worldly desires, sanely and righteously and piously we should live in the present aeonTitus 2:12
And be not conformed to this aeon, but be transformed in the renewal of your mind, in the trying of yourselves, in what is the good and well-pleasing and perfect will of God!Romans 12:2
who gave himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil aeon, according to the will of our God and Father,Galatians 1:4
This is how it will be at the end of the aeon. The angels will come and separate the wicked from the righteous and throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.Matthew 13:49-50
the mystery that has been kept hidden for aeons and generations, but is now disclosed to the Master’s people.Colossians 1:26
Now to him that is able to strengthen you according to my gospel and the preaching of Yeshua HaMashiach, according to the revelation of the mystery which hath been kept in secret from ancient timesRomans 16:25
the One having saved us and having called us with a set-apart calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and favor, having been given us in the Mashiach Yeshua from the beginning in ancient times2 Timothy 1:9
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.Genesis 1:1
according to a purpose of the aeons, which he made in the Mashiach Yeshua our MasterEphesians 3:11
but we speak God’s wisdom in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God predestined at the beginning of the aeons for our glory1 Corinthians 2:7
even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be set-apart and blameless before him. In loveEphesians 1:4
…they will be priests of God and of the Mashiach and will reign with him for a 1,000 years.Revelation 20:6
Now these things happened to them as types and were written for our admonition, to whom the ends of the aeons are arrived.1 Corinthians 10:11
Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea.Revelation 21:1
And there will be no night there; and they have no need of a lamp, and the light of the sun, for the Master God enlightens them; and they shall reign into the aeons of the aeons.Revelation 22:5
But, as it is written, “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him”1 Corinthians 2:9
But according to his promise we are waiting for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.2 Peter 3:13
As such, because something aeonial can end is why the covenant of Moses, whose visible sign was resting on the Shabbath, became old and is coming to an end, because is was an aeonial covenant, not an “eternal” covenant. And was replaced by a new and better covenant, the one established through the blood of the Mashiach, whose sign is now the circumcision of the heart. Which can be visibly seen by others because all who have the foreskin of the heart removed will yield good works and will cease to do evil works, which is why “by their fruits you will know them”.
You shall keep the Shabbath, because it is set-apart for you. Everyone who profanes it shall be put to death. Whoever does any work on it, that soul shall be cut off from among his people. Six days shall work be done, but the seventh day is a Shabbath of solemn rest, set-apart to Yehovah. Whoever does any work on the Shabbath day shall be put to death. Therefore the people of Israel shall keep the Shabbath, fulfilling the Shabbath throughout their generations, as an aeonial covenant. It is an aeonial sign between me and the people of Israel that in six days Yehovah made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested and was refreshed.Exodus 31:14-17
Behold, the days are coming, declares Yehovah, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and the house of Judah, not like the covenant that I made with their fathers on the day when I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt, my covenant that they broke, though I was their husband, declares Yehovah. For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares Yehovah: I will put my Torah within them, and I will write it on their hearts. And I will be their God, and they shall be my people.Jeremiah 31:31-33
for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.Matthew 26:28
In speaking of a new covenant, he has made the first one old; and what is old and aging is near vanishing.Hebrews 8:13
But a Jew is one inwardly, and circumcision is a matter of the heart, by the airflow, not by the letter. His praise is not from man but from God.Romans 2:29
In him also you were circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the flesh, by the circumcision of the MashiachColossians 2:11
You know that he appeared in order to remove sins, and in him there is no sin. No one who abides in him sins; no one who sins has either seen him or known him.1 John 3:5-6
Anyone born of God does not sin, because God’s seed abides in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God.1 John 3:9
You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? So, every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.Matthew 7:16-18
And the land of Canaan that was promised to Abraham and his descendants is not an “eternal” possession, because heaven and earth will one day pass away, therefore it is an “aeonial” possession.
And I will give to you and to your offspring after you the land of your sojournings, all the land of Canaan, for an aeonial possession, and I will be their God.Genesis 17:8
And even the lake of fire is not “eternal”, because it will begin to burn at the second coming of the Mashiach. For it will be a lake of lava that will form outside the southern wall of Jerusalem, which is why Yeshua called the lake of fire “Gehenna”, which means “Valley of Hinnom”. And the lava will flow from a mountain that will rise up at that time, which will be called “Mount Zion”, whose lava will flow to the north to Jerusalem, and to the south to Negev. And the lake of lava will continue burning for around 1,000 years during the 1,000 year rulership of the Mashiach, which is why it is called an “aeonial fire”, not “eternal fire”, because it burns for a “long time”. And will serve as the place where the torahless will be thrown into at the second coming of the Mashiach, then all who sin during his rulership will be thrown into it, then all the dead whose names are not written in the book of life who are resurrected from the sleep of death at the end of his rulership to be judged will be thrown into it. And whoever is thrown into this lava will be destroyed “body and soul”, meaning they will cease to exist. Even angels who are thrown into it will also cease to exist, in a very painful way. Yet once the 1,000 year rulership of the Mashiach is finished, the lake of fire will pass away, because heaven and earth will pass away. And it will no longer serve any purpose since all the torahless would have been destroyed and reduced to ashes. And in the new heaven and new earth there will no longer be sin and death and suffering.
He said, “Leave; for the girl has not died, but is asleep.” And they began laughing at Him.Matthew 9:24
After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers and sisters at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep.1 Corinthians 15:6
Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with your might, for there is no work or thought or knowledge or wisdom in Sheol, to which you are going.Ecclesiastes 9:10
It is not the dead who praise Yehovah, those who go down to the place of silence;Psalm 115:17
Consider and answer me, O Yehovah my God; light up my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death,Psalm 13:3
…declares Yehovah, whose fire is in Zion, and whose furnace is in Jerusalem.Isaiah 31:9
Son of man, set your face toward the south; preach against the south, and prophesy against the forest land in the Negev. Say to the forest of the Negev, Hear the word of Yehovah: Thus says the Master Yehovah, Behold, I will kindle a fire in you, and it shall devour every green tree in you and every dry tree. The blazing flame shall not be quenched… All flesh shall see that I Yehovah have kindled it; it shall not be quenched.Ezekiel 20:46-48
And they will go out and look on the dead bodies of those who rebelled against me; the worms that eat them will not die, the fire that burns them will not be quenched, and they will be loathsome to all mankind.Isaiah 66:24
And if your eye should cause you to stumble, cast it out; it is better for you to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes, to be cast into Gehenna, where ‘their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.’Mark 9:47-48
And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, Death and Hades gave up the dead who were in them, and they were judged, each one of them, according to what they had done. Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire.Revelation 20:13-14
…“‘You were the seal of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. You were in Eden, the garden of God… Through your widespread trade you were filled with violence, and you sinned. So I drove you in disgrace from the mount of God, and I expelled you, guardian cherub, from among the fiery stones. Your heart became proud on account of your beauty, and you corrupted your wisdom because of your splendor. So I threw you to the earth; I made a spectacle of you before kings. By your many sins and dishonest trade you have desecrated your set-apart places. So I made a fire come out from you, and it consumed you, and I reduced you to ashes on the ground in the sight of all who were watching. All the nations who knew you are appalled at you; you have come to a horrible end and will be no more.’”Ezekiel 28:12-19
Then you will trample on the wicked; they will be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day when I act,” says Yehovah Almighty.Malachi 4:3
For his anger is but for a moment, and his favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning.Psalm 30:5
He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.Revelation 21:4
Which is why the smoke of the lake of lava will ascend only until the “aeons of the aeons”, which are the aeons of the new heavens and new earth, and not “forever and ever”. For the lava of lava itself will eventually cease to exist when this heaven and this earth passes away and the “aeons of the aeons” of the new heavens and new earth begin.
And the smoke of their torment ascends to aeons of the aeons…Revelation 14:11
And even the rulership of the Mashiach is not “eternal”, because it will eventually come to an end at the end of his 1,000 year rulership on earth. And even though his rulership on earth will begin at his second coming, he has already been ruling from heaven for almost 2,000 years, which implies that his total time of rulership from heaven and then from the earth is around 3,000 years total, which is why his rulership is “aeonial”, not “eternal”, because his rulership lasts a “long time”. As opposed to rulers on earth who rule for only a few years or at most as long as they live in this temporal body, which is a short time.
…his dominion is an aeonial dominion…Daniel 7:14
Then comes the end, when he delivers the kingdom to God the Father after destroying every rule and every authority and power. For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death. For “God has put all things in subjection under his feet.” But when it says, “all things are put in subjection,” it is plain that he is excepted who put all things in subjection under him. When all things are subjected to him, then the Son himself will also be subjected to him who put all things in subjection under him, that God may be all in all.1 Corinthians 15:24-28
Yet even though the rulership of the Mashiach ends on this earth, his rulership in the new earth begins, but in a different context. For in the current earth the Mashiach rules over the world like a Master rules over servants, because of sin, ruling from heaven and then from the earth. But in the new earth, where sin and death no longer exists, all who are written in the book of life to live in the new heavens and new earth will no longer be servants, but will be co-rulers. And will rule together with the Mashiach, and with God, for God will no longer dwell above man in a heavenly place unreachable and unseen to man, but God will dwell with man in the new earth. And so as one time ends, another time begins. And as one aeon ends, another aeon begins. And thus there is a progression of “aeon to aeon” and “aeons of the aeons”, hence “aeonial”, with an appointed time for everything, with old things eventually passing away, and with new things brought into existence. Which is another reason why God is called “aeonial”, because he exists and rules aeon to aeon. Yet his existence is not limited to time and aeons, because he existed before time and aeons began, therefore his existence is also “eternal”, not because “aeonial” implicitly implies “eternity”, since not everything that is “aeonial” is “eternal”, but because he has always existed and will always continue to exist regardless of whether creation and time exist or not. Therefore according to the modern idea of “eternity”, God is also “eternal” apart from “aeonial”.
For everything there is an appointed time, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
…they shall reign into the aeons of the aeons.Revelation 22:5
“You are my witnesses,” declares Yehovah, “and my servant whom I have chosen, that you may know and believe me and understand that I am he. Before me no god was formed, nor shall there be any after me.Isaiah 43:10
Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever you had formed the earth and the world, from aeon to aeon you are God.Psalm 90:2
Abraham planted a tamarisk tree in Beer-sheba, and there he called on the name of Yehovah the aeonial God.Genesis 21:33
And I saw the set-apart city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the tent of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”Revelation 21:2-5
Yet among other things that are both “aeonial” and also “eternal” is the “kingdom of God”. For the kingdom of God exists throughout the aeons of this earth, and will be the only kingdom that will continue to exist into the aeons of the new heavens and new earth, which is why the kingdom of God is an “aeonial kingdom”. Whereas all other kingdoms on this earth will eventually end. Yet the kingdom of God is also “eternal”, not because “aeonial” implies “eternity”, but because other scriptures tell us so, “it will never be destroyed” and “it will never end”, thus implying “eternal”, meaning “never ending”. And even though there will be a progression of “aeons of the aeons” in the new heavens and new earth that will involve changes in creation as there have been changes in the aeons of this earth, the only one who never changes is God, who brought creation and time into existence, and who alone appointed different times and aeons in his creation, like a director of a movie who appoints different times and scenes in a movie. And even the Mashiach himself is subject to change, which is why at one time he came as a servant in one aeon, and in another time he rules from heaven in another aeon, and in another time he will will rule from the earth in another aeon, and in another time he will rule in the new earth in another aeon, because fundamentally he is created, in the highest representation of God in creation, which is why he is called the “firstborn of creation”. Yet his existence is indeed “aeonial” like the existence of God is “aeonial”, but the existence of God is greater than the Mashiach, because God is not subject to change nor aeons, but rather, he appoints change and aeons.
…his dominion is an aeonial dominion that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed.Daniel 7:14
Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and aeonially. The zeal of Yehovah of armies will do this.Isaiah 9:7
“In the time of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed…Daniel 2:44
and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants to the aeons; his kingdom will never end.Luke 1:33
For in this way there will be richly provided for you an entrance into the aeonial kingdom of our Master and Savior Yeshua HaMashiach.2 Peter 1:11
He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation.Colossians 1:15
“You heard me say, ‘I am going away and I am coming back to you.’ If you loved me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I.John 14:28
Yehovah possessed me at the beginning of his way, the first of his works from then; I was formed aeons ago, at the very beginning, when the earth came to be. When there was no abyss, I was given birth, when there were no springs overflowing with water; before the mountains were settled in place, before the hills, I was given birthProverbs 8:22-25
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God…John 1:1
but those called, both Jews and Greeks, the Messiah the power of God and the wisdom of God.1 Corinthians 1:24
But out of Him, you are in Messiah Yeshua, who has been made unto us wisdom from God, and righteousness and set-apartness and to be purchased1 Corinthians 1:30
As such, “aeonial life” is not necessarily “eternal life”, for the Mashiach, who had aeonial life from the beginning of creation when he came into existence, meaning life that endures for aeons, eventually died when he came in the flesh to dwell on the earth. And even the angels who sinned who have aeonial life now will eventually die in the lake of lava and will cease to exist. Which is why life that is “aeonial” does not necessarily imply life that is “eternal”. For what is aeonial simply implies lasting a long time, for aeons, but not necessarily “never ending”, for fundamentally nothing in creation is indestructible nor unconditionally immortal like God is indestructible and unconditionally immortal, because everything in creation relies on the condition that God will continue to cause it to exist. And just as God brought something into existence, so can he easily cause it to cease to exist, which is also why the “immortality” of angels and the “immortality” man will receive is conditional. For “immortality” only implies having a body that continually remains alive because it never grows old and never dies on its own, hence the “incorruptible” and “imperishable” bodies the people of God will will receive in the resurrection like the bodies of angels, which is thus able to live for aeons, hence “aeonial life”. Yet if the necessary conditions for that body to live are removed, such as the basic need for food, which is why angels who are immortal still need to eat to nourish their bodies, or the body is mortally injured, such as being thrown into a lake of lava, the immortal body will die like a mortal body that does grow old and dies on its own. Which is why the angels that sinned will die like men in the lake of lava, even though they possess immortal bodies. And that is why a “tree of life” exists in heaven, because its fruit not only gives aeonial life, but its leaves also provide healing to the bodies of angels if they become injured, although it is not appointed for angels of God to ever die, which will also provide healing to the bodies of men in the new heavens and new earth. For “aeonial life” and “immortality” do not imply unable to be destroyed or unable to be injured. And because of this, the true reason why death will no longer exist in the new heavens and new earth is not because man will become unconditionally immortal, but simply because of what God has appointed to be. Which is why when the nations war against the Mashiach and his armies of angels with their powerful weapons of war that exist today, the Mashiach and his armies of angels will still win, not because the Mashiach and his armies of angels are indestructible and unconditionally immortal, but simply because of what God has appointed will happen. And that is why when the sons of Israel waged war against the Midianites, not one of them died, not because they were immortal obviously, because simply because God did not appoint it to be so. And indeed if the sons of Israel had been obedient, not one of them would have died in destroying all the Canaanite nations to inherit the land, because God would have favored them and not appointed for any of them to die. But because of their disobedience, God appointed that 1st generation that left Egypt to die in the desert. And that is why God must always be feared, because everything living, whether mortal or immortal, will always depend on God on whether he wants it to continue existing or not. And everything in creation will also always depend on what he appoints to be, because fundamentally he is the creator, and we simply are and will always be his creation made for his pleasure.
I said, “You are gods, sons of the Most High, all of you; nevertheless, like men you shall die, and fall like any prince.”Psalm 82:6-7
Man ate of the bread of the angels; he sent them food in abundance.Psalm 78:25
Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, bright as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb through the middle of the street of the city; also, on either side of the river, the tree of life with its twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.Revelation 22:1-2
Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates.Revelation 22:14
I tell you this, brothers: flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable.1 Corinthians 15:51-54
Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed. For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality. When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written: “Death is swallowed up in victory.”
for “‘In him we live and move and are’; as even some of your own poets have said, “‘For we are indeed his offspring.’Acts 17:28
The fear of Yehovah is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the set-apart one is understanding.Proverbs 9:10
the fear of Yehovah is clean, enduring aeonially; the judgments of Yehovah are true, and righteous altogether.Psalm 19:9
Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! The one sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war. His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on his head are many diadems, and he has a name written that no one knows but himself. He is clothed in a robe dipped in blood, and the name by which he is called is The Word of God. And the armies of heaven, arrayed in fine linen, white and pure, were following him on white horses. From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron. He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty. On his robe and on his thigh he has a name written, King of kings and Master of masters. Then I saw an angel standing in the sun, and with a loud voice he called to all the birds that fly directly overhead, “Come, gather for the great supper of God, to eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all men, both free and slave, both small and great.”… And the rest were slain by the sword that came from the mouth of him who was sitting on the horse, and all the birds were gorged with their flesh.Revelation 19:11-21
Then the officers who were over the thousands of the army, the commanders of thousands and the commanders of hundreds, came near to Moses and said to Moses, “Your servants have counted the men of war who are under our command, and there is not a man missing from us.Numbers 31:48-49
And because of what God appointed in the aeons of this earth is why man was not given “aeonial life” when he was made. For what brought death to man was not eating of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for it was a tree of knowledge, not a tree of death, but transgressing the command to not eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat…Genesis 2:17
Because the transgression resulted in God taking away his access to the “tree of life”, which granted immortality, by banishing him from the Garden of Eden, which is therefore what made the eventual death of man “sure”, hence “you shall surely die”. Because man was not originally given aeonial life when he was created, although aeonial life was put within his reach with the tree of life, because his body was made from the dust of the ground to be temporal, which would eventually grow old and naturally die on its own, like the lesser flesh of animals who were also made in this temporal way. Which God did in preparation for what he predestined would happen in the aeons of this earth, which is one reason man was made “a little lesser than the angels”, who were indeed originally given aeonial life when they were created.
then Yehovah God formed the man of dust from the ground and breathed into his nostrils the airflow of life, and the man became a living soul.Genesis 2:7
What is sown is corruptible; what is raised is incorruptible.1 Corinthians 15:42
…for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.Genesis 2:17
So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate.Genesis 3:6
Then Yehovah God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of us in knowing good and evil. Now, lest he reach out his hand and take also of the tree of life and eat, and live aeonially” therefore Yehovah God sent him out from the garden of Eden to work the ground from which he was taken. He drove out the man, and at the east of the garden of Eden he placed the cherubim and a whirling flaming sword to guard the way to the tree of life.Genesis 3:22-24
Yet you have made him a little lower than the angels and crowned him with glory and honor.Psalm 8:5
In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the plan of his willEphesians 1:11
Which is not something man thought he needed, because he was healthy and living and young at that time. Which is why he never bothered to simply reach out and eat of the fruit of the tree of life, even though he had access to the tree of life the entire time he was in the Garden of Eden.
And out of the ground Yehovah God made to spring up every tree that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life was in the midst of the garden…Genesis 2:9
And as a result of the transgression, death then became the greatest enemy of man, the “great curse”, which will be the last enemy to be destroyed.
The last enemy to be destroyed is death.1 Corinthians 15:26
Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire…Revelation 20:14
As such, even though “aeonial life” in the aeons of this earth is not necessarily “eternal life”, the “aeonial life” the people of God will receive in the next aeon and in the aeons of the new heavens and new earth can also be called “eternal life”. Not because aeonial implies eternity, but because death will no longer exist in the new heavens and new earth. And those who receive aeonial life in the next aeon can no longer die, according to what God has appointed and promised, thus implying life that “never ends”, hence “eternal life”, according to the modern idea of “eternity”, which is not a word that exists in the scriptures in the original languages. And is a word that should not be used in place of the English words that correctly reflect the original words, “aeons” and “aeonial” and “aeonially”, to thus not confuse that which is aeonial that does indeed end and that which is aeonial that never ends.
but those who are considered worthy to attain to that aeon and to the resurrection from the dead neither marry nor are given in marriage, for they cannot die anymore, because they are equal to angels and are sons of God, being sons of the resurrection.Luke 20:35-36
Blessed and set-apart is the one who shares in the first resurrection! Over such the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of the Mashiach, and they will reign with him for a 1,000 years.Revelation 20:6
…and death shall be no more…Revelation 21:4
