GOD & TIME
The truth is that 'Time' as we humans know it and understand it began in Genesis 1 and ends in Revelation 21. Genesis 1 is the beginning of time for Adam and Eve on this planet, ETERNITY has been going on long before our human beginning initiated on this planet !!! The vast hierarchy of Angelic beings had a different beginning in 'Eternity Past' ( Job 38 ) they were obviously 'NOT' created in the Garden of Eden with Adam and Eve. 'WE' human beings were created in our very own 'Bubble of Time' within Eternity. GOD's Angel's according to the Holy Scriptures are able to 'step in and out of our time' ( Daniel 8 : 15 and Luke 1 : 26 ) The Messenger Angel : Gabriel appears to Daniel and then hundreds of years later to Mary without himself being affected by our time*
Biblically speaking there have been several different beginnings throughout ETERNITY ( John 1 : 1, Ezekiel 28 : 13, Proverbs 8 : 22-23 ) and I'm 'NOT' going to lie to you there's GOING to be many, many more different beginnings throughout 'Eternity Future.' GOD 'Thee ETERNAL CREATOR' is 'NOT' retiring anytime soon from the Creation business; 'HE' has been creating all throughout 'Eternity Past' and 'HE' will continue to create all throughout 'Eternity Future' new and unique creations that serve and suit 'HIS' sovereign designs !!!
The one thing we do know theologically about time is that it is "NOT" the year 2017 in the Third Heaven nor the Hebrew year 5777 !!! In Genesis 1; GOD is creating a new time period within eternity and a new beginning within eternity itself. We all know that Eternity itself has "NO" beginning; and it has been 'going on and on' long before we were created by GOD and even long before GOD even created all of the Angelic hierarchies. We do know that GOD had other 'Son's of GOD' long before he created us. Genesis, was given to us and especially the chosen Jewish people so that they could reference GOD's beginning with this creation; the Holy Bible 'confirms' to us that there was already creation before Genesis 1, ( Job 38 : 7 ) very simply because neither GOD nor Eternity have any beginning "BUT" all of GOD's creation does have a "UNIQUE" beginning. The Angels who were created before us in 'Eternity Past' had their own unique beginning in eternity; just as almost every nation on this planet has had their own unique 'beginning' ( Independence Day etc ...)
If there is one thing that this servant of Jesus Christ has learned in his short existence on this planet is that 'WE' are all wrong about time; 'Albert Einstein' is wrong about time, Stephen Hawking is wrong about time, this human being with his 'limited and finite' 5 senses is wrong about time and so is every human theory out there !!! The Holy Scriptures do 'NOT' give us a detailed account of 'Eternity Past' some believers make the mistake of trying to date Genesis; while I personally believe in the 6 days of creation as mentioned in Genesis others would like you to believe that 'Eternity' began in Genesis 1
( some 6 thousand years ago*) and that is 'NOT' theologically nor Biblically correct.
This student of Theology writes concerning this specific subject and topic because too many believers 'wrongly' believe that 'EVERYTHING' began in Genesis 1. Theologically speaking Genesis 1 is our human beginning and insertion into eternity by our Creator : GOD, who exists outside of the time and space continuum of our dimension, planet and universe. Before Genesis ( human prehistory*) GOD was 'NOT' living in the darkness of space nor surrounded by nothing else than 'Dark Matter.' In Genesis, GOD our Creator is creating 'Artificial Light' ( sun, stars*) in this remote section of our Universe.
As human beings who were created in a 'Temporary' dimension and compartment of eternity we are subject to time but "NOT" GOD !!! Everyone should first understand that time is different in each : planet, solar system and galaxy; in fact even on planet Earth we don't all follow one time zone !!! There are literally billions of different time zones in this Universe alone; on Earth we measure time by our orbit around our Sun-Star but the same is "NOT" true of all of the rest of this Universe because we know that each star and planet is very different from our time perspective.
We were created in this specific moment in Eternity and in this specific planet where Satan was temporarily : thrown, bound and confined to; in direct response to the rebellion of one-third of the Angels who chose to believe in Lucifer's lies. We occupy a planet and dimension that is only temporary and that will ultimately be destroyed. In the meantime, it is very unfortunate that most of humanity has been unknowingly blinded by Satan ( 2 Corinthians 4 : 4 ). We live in a temporary reality, the true reality is the Eternal reality where the Angels tread and exist in !!! If you think that our brief and temporary existence on this planet is all there is you are 'dead wrong' GOD has created : things, places and multitudes of other creations in eternity that would boggle our corrupted minds*
When GOD ALMIGHTY took human form in JESUS CHRIST; and visited planet earth the technological advancement of mankind was very, very backwards and was still in a primitive state. When Jesus walked the streets of Jerusalem there were still no hospitals,
no real medicine and most people alive still lived very much like Adam and Eve had been living outside of the 'Garden of Eden.' When Jesus Christ visited Jerusalem most Jews were dependent on agriculture and the most high tech weapon employed by the Roman Empire was still the sword !!!
Although, technological discoveries and innovations have exploded in this Century like in no other in the history of mankind even our highest technology is still very primitive before GOD, we are still trying to figure out how to decode the human genome that GOD engineered long, long ago !!! Even our best space telescopes in 2014 cannot map all the Universe that contains quite literally billions+ of other Galaxies !!!
The truth is that, the future does not belong to the : Apple Corporation, nor to Microsoft, Facebook nor to any American or Chinese Corporation; the truth of the matter is that all of these Corporations will one day cease to exist !!! Neither does the future belong to any manmade Empire for they are all temporary; they all 'come and go' and even the American Empire will not be the exception. The truth is that the Future belongs to GOD and everything 'in it and in between it' and GOD long, long ago DECLARED the final days of this planet and creation as revealed to us in the Book of Revelation, the ending of this creation will go just as it has been scripted by GOD in the Book of Revelation !!!
One of the main errors and misconceptions most people have is that somehow everything began in Genesis 1 when in reality 'ETERNITY' has been going on for 'billions upon billions' of what we here call Earth years. Genesis 1 does 'NOT' mention the Angelic creation that far surpasses us the human creation; GOD has only revealed to us 'bits and pieces' of it all. The Book of Job 38 : 6-7 reveals to us that the Son's of God rejoiced when GOD was creating this creation in this part of the Universe; therefore we know that there was already another creation outside of this one !!! Most Astronomers agree that our Universe is around 13 billion years old and according to our Jewish brothers; Adam and Eve were created on this planet some 6000 years ago. It is evident that we are 'NOT' GOD's only creation in this Universe and in Eternity and we know Biblically that we are definitely "NOT" His first creation and by now you should know that we will not be His last creation in all of Eternity either !!!
It is tragic that in 2014 most people still have major misconceptions about GOD and ETERNITY. The Christian author : Derek Prince summed it up all : 'We were created in this precise time and place in eternity in direct response to the fall of Satan and one third of Angelic hosts of heaven.' Eternity has been going on long before GOD created Adam and Eve and eternity will continue with or without us and GOD the CREATOR of everything that ever was, is and will be will keep on creating because that is what a CREATOR with unlimited : resources and power does !!!
The Holy Bible presents to us GOD our CREATOR as an Eternal Spirit who has a MONOPOLY on all of creation and a GOD who has the power to bring everything back into existence by the sole power of His Living WORD !!! Eternity itself confirms that GOD has created 'millions upon millions' of different creations long before HE Created us in this part of His Universe. Theologically speaking GOD knew beforehand that Adam and Eve were going to sin, so why create billions of other Galaxies with billions of other planets then ? It is the 'insignificant observation' of this poor servant of GOD ALMIGHTY that we are 'NOT' GOD's second creation in all of Eternity; I do not know what number we are but we definitely know that we are not His first nor His last creation !!!
We here on Earth measure time by our planets rotation around our star 'Sun' but the same is not true in the rest of the Universe nor in Heaven. The Holy Bible which I believe from 'Genesis to Revelation' to be the inspired WORD of GOD ALMIGHTY reveals to us a GOD who declares to know the 'End from the Beginning.' The HOLY GOD of ISRAEL operates outside of the limits of time and space in ways that no 'Theoretical Physicist' will ever, ever comprehend.
The Holy GOD of Israel is 'NOT' a 'Time Traveler' nor an 'Ancient Astronaut' as some would want you to believe; GOD is an Eternal Spirit who has not aged one second in all of Eternity !!!
One of the many reasons why I personally believe in the Holy Bible as being the inspired WORD of the Living GOD is because its message transcends 'Earthly Time' itself. The people, servants and Prophets that GOD ALMIGHTY used to communicate His eternal WORD thousands of years ago before men knew anything of 'high-technology' were mostly simple agrarian people; yet the WORDS that they recorded transcend even the most high technology that men has ever invented.
In both the Old and New Testament we find a CREATOR who knows the future before time on Earth even begins; a CREATOR who solely by the very POWER of HIS WORD creates billions upon billions of : Elements, Galaxies, planets, Universes and Creations that mankind has never even imagined !
The future not only belongs to GOD ALMIGHTY; He knows the end from the beginning. GOD knew that Lucifer would eventually lead a rebellion in Heaven and He had already been proactive about it all and He knew Adam and Eve would sin and the Lamb of GOD had already been slain before the Foundation of this world !!!
GOD doesn't makes mistakes, he is not 'one step ahead' of the future HE is literally millions of steps ahead of it !!! GOD TRANSCENDS it all and HE is literally already present millions of years into the future in ways that our limited human minds cannot fanthom !!!
The future not only belongs to GOD; it is also HE who Sovereignly 'DETERMINES' the ending of all of His creations.
The Biblical Prophecies 'GUARANTEE' that the future does 'NOT' belongs to China and much less to Islam !!! There are some ignorant 'Bible Prophecy Teachers' who long ago lost their way and are now even quoting the false prophecies of false religions as if they were on the par of those of the HOLY BIBLE !!! The truth is that despite all the 'hoopla, threats and promises of annihilation' NOT one Islamic country or Terrorist Group has ever CONQUERED the modern state of Israel !!!
Before the only GOD of HEAVEN : Satan has already been long defeated, Islam has already been long defeated and all the nations that forget GOD have all been dealt with accordingly by the SOVEREIGN JUSTICE of the HOLY GOD of Israel manifested in JESUS CHRIST ***
All Glory and Honor be to our LORD and SAVIOR : JESUS CHRIST !!! There is a SOVEREIGN and OMNIPOTENT GOD & CREATOR and His name is not : allah, buddha, mohammed, zeus, krishna; the name of the only true GOD is YHWH : JEHOVA : YESHUA : JESUS CHRIST !!!
