Fear of God Devotional: “Lord, Stamp Eternity on My Eyeballs”



How important is it to keep in the mind the reality of eternity and Hell?

Paul Carrington explains in this video that it is important to remember the eternal reality of Hell. When you think of the millions of people who will be spending eternity in a place of eternal torment, how can you keep going on as normal? 

One Puritan explained it that 5 million years from now, a soul in Hell will be no closer to being released than the first day that they entered. Jonathan Edwards once stated, “Lord, stamp eternity on my eyeballs.” We ought to have a similar urgency in the church for holiness and for the souls of men. 

2 Thessalonians 1:9 (NKJV) – “These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power.”
