Past tense is so closed, so final. It's over. Nothing more is going to happen, because it's past, not present.

We who are Christ's, however, will not have to live with the past tense forever. We know the Lord Jesus. He will come again soon, making wrong things right, and creating for us a new heavens and a new earth...with no more endings.
Thank you, Lord. Come, Lord Jesus.
