God promised forever and ever, “he” will be with us. There will be no end, and the beginning is only now, and then forever and ever.
If a billion years: 1,000,000,000 seems like a long, long time from now. That is true, and it’s not something to worry about and you will also be with your soulmate, no matter what.
God even said “he” will see you in a quintillion years from now: 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 and you may still be playing cricket and then shooting hoops with your best mate, because what will you do without those games, right?
I love games too, and God says I will still be playing poker in a octovigintillion years from now: 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 and the sun will always shine brightly, and the stars from a distance, as always.
In a centillion years from now: 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 is not enough for God! “He” promises to keep it going forever, and ever and ever (and ever). In the meantime, you may just have your 37th college degree by then, because what are you supposed to do without some education? Nah, just take a class or two every now and then, and if it takes “forever” to get a degree, then so be it.
So what is the meaning of forever? The symbol for infinity is ∞, which shows endless plus endless plus no end and never ending forever, centillion times centillion times forever plus never ceasing. You bet. And your beloved toy poodle wants another 45 minute walk down the canyon, so do as you will.
God says it is the truth. As always and for all time, just like that.
