Is Eonian Life Temporary?

Hi S____,
The answer is: no, eonian life is not just for the eons. Eonian life is acquired by living and dying during your “aion.” However when the “aions” are completed and Christ gives the kingdom to His Father and “God is All in All” we will then be experiencing what the Bible calls “immortality.” Immortality is what God has. It is defined as “deathlessness.” At the resurrection we do not put on eonian life only, we also put on “immortality.”

Rom 2:7 To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality [Greek #861: aphtharsia], eternal life:

The word ‘incorruption’ in this next verse is the exact same Greek word translated ‘immortality’ in Romans2:7:

1Co 15:4 So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:

Here is that same thought using another Greek word:

1Co 15:54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality [Greek #110: athansasia], then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

1Ti 6:16 Who only hath immortality [Greek: athanasia, deathlessness], dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom [be] honour and power everlasting. Amen.

I hope that this helps you to see that deathlessness extends beyond the aions.
