ASV notes on Genesis 8:22 and questions


Stop existing

This verse carries some secrets about our far future; God is talking about the condition; “While the earth remains.” This is telling us that this physical earth is not going to remain forever. However, there is a spiritual perfect earth and a time will come when seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, day and night will be no more. These future times will be overwhelming and awesome and will last forever. However, in the meantime Jesus will come back and reign for a thousand years with an iron rod.

Time has gone

Those with Jesus will not get tired anymore, no need for sleep, no need to labour for food, no money to worry about, no struggle with your neighbour, the “time” has gone, the past, present and future is in the present with God for ever.


  1. Is the word of God easy to understand?
  2. What do you need to grasp the Word?
  3. Is God caring for you here on earth now?
