Stream of Time

For this world in its present form is passing away.  The whole scheme and system of worldly affairs, all this marrying and rejoicing, and weeping, and buying, and enjoying is passing away!  It is passing away this very moment!  It not only will pass away but even now, it is passing away!

The 'stream of time', with all the trifles that float on it, and all the eager pursuers of these bubbles is in motion, in swift, incessant motion to empty itself and all that sail upon it, into the shoreless ocean of eternity, where all will be absorbed and lost forever!

[Samuel Davies]

1 Corinthians 7:31 ... And they that use this world, as not abusing it: for the fashion of this world passeth away.

Psalm 90:9 ... For all our days are passed away in thy wrath: we spend our years as a tale that is told.

Isaiah 40:8 ... The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever.

1 John 2:17 ... And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
