Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary
In Scripture language this expression doth not simply mean the day which preceded the present, but sometimes refers to the eternity of ages past. Thus, the Lord Jesus Christ is said to be the same "yesterday, and to-day, and, for ever." (Hebrews 13:8) That is, the yesterday, before creation; to-day, meaning the whole period of time from the creation, to the consummation of all things; and for ever, including the whole eternity to come, when time shall be no more. Sweet thought to the believer in Jesus, both as it concerns the nature and essence of Christ, and as it refers to the everlasting sameness and unceasing efficacy of his redemption and love to his church and people! Amen.
