"I can't help you forever."


"I can't help you forever."


I think that the sentence could have two meanings like below.


1) I am helping you, but it cannot last for my entire life.


2) I am not able to help you for some reason until I die.


I also think there might be more meanings in the sentence, depending on context. 


What do you experts think? Could we understand the sentence like the #1 and #2 in some context?


Thank you so much as usual and I hope to hear from you again. Have a nice day.

I can't see #2 being applicable at all.  Your first definition fits this sentence well.
