Ages upon ages

“Amen! the blessing, and the glory, and the wisdom, and the thanksgiving, and the honour, and the power, and the strength, [are] to our God — to the ages of the ages! Amen!'”  Revelation 7:12

Many translations translate the greek aeon as eternity, but we don’t think that’s accurate.  Eons or aeons is more accurate.  Jesus puts this in context:

“Whoever speaks a word against the Son of Man, it shall be forgiven him; but whoever speaks against the Holy Spirit, it shall not be forgiven him, either in this age or in the age to come.”  Matthew 12:32

What is this future age?  The Millennial or Jubilee Sabbath.  But apparently there are ages even past those.  We have virtually no information other than the saints reigning in those times:

“But the saints of the Highest One will receive the kingdom and possess the kingdom forever, for all ages to come.’”  Daniel 7:18
