TIME

 

 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer: but in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets”. (Revelation 10:5-7). See our class on Revelation Chapter 10 to find out when and why Time shall be no longer.
“God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.(John 4:24 ).God and Jesus, and the Holy Spirit (our Heavenly family), and Heavenly parents live in the Spirit World, another dimension, where time does not exist, the eternal now. The Spirit world is the real world. This temporary physical world that we live in is not the real everlasting world. It is merely an illusion, a bad dream unless you know the ones who made you and knowing why they made you, and the purpose for your existence. “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” (Genesis 1:26,27 ). This world and our life here in it are only for a short time compared to eternity.” whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.(James 4:14).” As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth. For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.”( Psalms 103: 15,16). Knowing this, shouldn’t we be making the most of our time here? Shouldn’t we be thinking about our eternal life in Heaven? “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. (Matthew 6:19-21). Mans purpose is to love God, and enjoy him and his creation forever, and to help others to know him by knowing his Son Jesus. “For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;” (1 Timothy 2:5). When we pray we should pray to Jesus. Praying to Jesus is praying to God. It is presumptuous to pray straight to God and not to go through Jesus Christ. Some people when they pray start right off self righteously, saying “Father God,” and go right strait to God and go around Jesus. Those prayers don’t get pass the roof.” Beloved we should always pray to and through Jesus when we want to seek God. Maybe if we realized more how frail we are and how much we need Jesus then we wouldn’t think we could just go straight to God in prayer and not to Jesus. Here are some good verses to help with this. “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.” (Isaiah 53:6). “But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.”
(Isaiah 64:6 ). “Behold, he putteth no trust in his saints; yea, the heavens are not clean in his sight.” (Job 15:15).“Without me ye can do nothing.“(John 15: 5b). “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.” ( Matthew 24:35).That is the one constant truth that will never pass away. “For ever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven.” (Psalms 119:89). “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).You won’t need a time machine you will be able to time travel in the spirit. You can even do that now in your thoughts and prayers. Jesus said, “I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.” (John 9:4). Lord help us. The Lord knows that we should be making some spiritual progress in our hearts and lives and in our relationship with Jesus. Amen ? Can you take correction and learn and grow spiritually? “Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.” (Psalm 119:165). Sure Jesus said, when he was teaching his disciples how to pray, ” Our Father which art in Heaven,” he knew that if he told the disciples to pray to him, that they couldn’t receive it yet. They didn’t even fully believe he was the Son of God yet, except Peter. Jesus told them “I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.” (John 16:12). Without Jesus we would be like the Astronaut who is lost in space and has become unattached to his space ship and is forever tumbling around with no direction or goal,or destination.“For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night.” ( Psalms 90:4).“Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time.”( Colossians 4:5).

“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; a time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.” (Ecclesiastes 3: 1-8)

Say this prayer to be saved: Jesus, I want to know you, and to live forever in Heaven, I know I have made mistakes and done bad things- and I am sorry. Please forgive me. I know I don’t deserve it, but I accept your love and I accept you as my Saviour. I  believed you died on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead. Please come into my heart and life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and give me peace. Amen.
