1 Thes. 4:17 …And So We Will Be With The Lord Forever. 18 Therefore Encourage Each Other With These Words.

Forever is a long time. In heaven, forever will not seem like forever because we will have no sense of time. Forever in heaven is free of pain. We think we know what forever means, but we do not know what forever means in terms of our experience on earth. On earth, our pain can seem to go on forever, but the "forever" of pain is the opposite of the "forever" of Christ in heaven. The joy, peace, and happiness of heaven will never stop or fade away. On earth, we sometimes measure "how long" using a form of our pain as our gauge. On earth, we use clocks, calendars, watches, and various other time keeping devices to measure our time. In heaven, there is no need to measure time.
