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  !!!
