The Temporary Time Zone

Click here to listen

The temporary time zone. That's, what we're in. No matter where on the earth you are, you're still, in the temporary time zone. Maybe when we return to God in Heaven, we'll think we have been in the twilight zone. None the less we're all, in the temporary time zone. This will be a rather short study, but one I think may be interesting.

The creation of time.

Gen 1:14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

Gen 1:15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.

Gen 1:16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.

Gen 1:17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth,

Time is something created by God for this earth age. The flesh age. The above verses describes how God did it. I'm sure the whole process God used to do it, to us would be too complicated to understand. He just makes these simple statements that he did it. No need to go into details like , I took a half pint of this, and two tablespoons of that, and so on. I truly believe His word is so powerful, all He had to do was speak it and it was so. As a matter of fact, that is what the Bible says. And God said, --- and it was so.

The end of time.

Rev 10:1 And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:

Rev 10:2 And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,

Rev 10:3 And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.

Rev 10:4 And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.

Rev 10:5 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,

Rev 10:6 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:

Rev 10:7 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.

Just like at the creation of time, no explanations of how, just that it is done. But note, Rev 10:7. The mystery of God should be finished. I think the answers to all the questions we've ever had, even some we've never had, about God, will be made available for us to examine and learn. You know, when we learn something new now, it makes us feel pretty good. Wonder how we'll feel, when we are learning there.

Rev 21:23 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.

There is no need for time in Heaven.

From the start of time, until the end of time, just how long is it? Some say seven thousand years, and some say more. What really matters is what you do within your little portion of time. Who, What, When, Where, and Why? Just who are you? What are you doing here and what is your purpose here? When, (at what point in time), are you here. Where are you in this world? And last but not least, Why are you taking part in time? Remember, we are in the Temporary Time Zone.

Thanks, for allowing me, to share this with you. Remember, to always, study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. But shun profane and vain babblings: for they will increase unto more ungodliness.

In His Word,
