Let Us Get Started


This Week:El Olam (Everlasting God)

El Olam, the Everlasting God, is a secret name for God, hinting at His mysterious nature. The prefix El...is from Elohim (“strong Creator”). Olam means time, or age. With a tiny change in the vowel signs in Hebrew, the ancient rabbis spelled it alam, “hidden”, underscoring the mysterious nature of God. God's everlasting or timeless nature— without beginning or end—is one of the most profound mysteries of His nature.

Think About this:  

Abraham planted a tamarisk tree in Beersheba, and there he called on the name of the LORD, the Eternal God.Genesis 21:33


Abimelek, a local ruler, wanted to make a treaty with Abraham because, as he said, “God is with you in everything you do.” Abimelek played it safe and became an ally of Abraham rather than an enemy. At first glance, this may seem a minor incident in Abraham’s life, but at Beersheba we see that Abraham calls on the LORD as El Olam, “the Everlasting God” or “Eternal God.”


The Hebrew word olam means “for a long time, always, forever.” El Olam thus reveals God as “the Everlasting God,” without beginning or end.


Why would Abraham use the name El Olam here? Note that before encountering Abimelek, Sarah had given birth to Isaac, the son God had promised. Abraham saw that God was faithful to his promises from many years earlier. As a reminder that “the Everlasting God” keeps his promises, Abraham planted a tamarisk tree, an evergreen, at Beersheba.


From everlasting to everlasting before the birth of the world the Everlasting God - El Olam, the Alpha the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End, is beyond any constraints of time that the human mind can construct.


As Charles Spurgeon once wrote, "What we call past, present, and future, He wraps up in one eternal NOW. And if you say that He loves you now, you thereby say that He loved you yesterday, He loved you in the past and He will love you forever; for now, with God is past, present, and future. 


God is not constrained by time, for "with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day".(2 Peter 3:8) To the human mind it may seem like God had forgotten about His promises to Abraham and Sarah because they waited 25 years for their promised child.  The children wandered for 40 years before entering the promised land. But eternal promises can be trusted when they come from an Everlasting God.


When we find ourselves overwhelmed by all the current trials hold onto the truth that El Olam is Everlasting.  El Olam has witnessed all storms from the beginning to the present and is standing on the other side protecting, guiding, and leading us.  Our Everlasting God has an Everlasting Love for us that through His Son Jesus Christ will bring us to our eternal home where all storms, trials, disease, death, and trials will be NO MORE! Amen.



 Read and Meditate on these Scriptures thatReveal God as El Olam:

Psalm 90:1-2, Isaiah 40:28, Isaiah 26:4, Genesis 21:33, Jeremiah 10:10



*In Week Six you read or listened to the hymn “How Great Thy Art”, verses 1-2. This week read or listen to the same hymn but add verses 3-4. Take quiet time to reflect the meaning of those words in the hymn.


Song: How Great Thou Art, verses 3-4


And when I think that God, His Son not sparing
Sent Him to die, I scarce can take it in
That on the cross, my burden gladly bearing
He bled and died to take away my sin.




Then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art
Then sings my soul, my Savior God to Thee
How great Thou art, how great Thou art.


When Christ shall come with shout of acclamation
And take me home, what joy shall fill my heart
Then I shall bow in humble adoration
And then proclaim, "My God, how great Thou art".

* Lent has begun. It represents the 40 days Jesus spent fasting in the wilderness. Reflect on your notes from last week and write down what these verses mean to you in your Christian walk with God during this time leading up to Easter Sunday.


*Closing Benediction:2 John 3 - Grace, mercy, and peace will be with us, from God the Father and from Jesus Christ the Father’s Son, in truth and love. AMEN.

*CLOSE YOUR EYES for 5-10 minutes and feel the love of Christ wrapping His loving arms around you.You are beautiful and one of a kind -YOU ARE GOD’S MASTERPIECE.

*Blow your candle out to end your quiet journey with God. God bless you until we meet again next week!
