The Acceleration Of Time
I was the teen, who after smoking pot, started a discussion about other galaxies and planets.
I was the one, who after eating blotter acid freaked out all my friends about the other worlds that lived on a person's body; getting a microscope to prove it.
I was that addict, who after doing much to much of a methamphetamine/heroin mixture that looked into the sky at dusk and saw the upside down cross and realized that God is real and His Word is Truth.
That is what this hub is about; God; God and time. Does God recognize time? Our time? Does God have His own time?
Where has the time gone? Let's take a look at what Truth says:
That Thing Called Time
Do you ever feel like everything is moving faster? I do.
It seems like it was just 3 years ago that I moved to Missouri from . That was in 1999. It seems like it was 2 years ago that my grandson, Jonathan was killed. That was in 2007.It seems like it was just yesterday that the wife of 30 years of mine died and that I had met a beautiful, loving woman here in Puerto Rico, blessed by NebraskaGod, to spend the rest of my days with. It's been longer than yesterday.
Time seems to have sped up. I was really thinking it was me and something that happens as we get older. As I have spoke with others on this subject, I have realized everyone feels this way. Time is moving faster. Why and how?
The first book of the Bible shows us that God recognizes time. He created it!
Genesis 1:5: And God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
What could be more clear? God created time; so for all of you who says there is no time in God's eyes; rethink that theory.
Time is created from God, why, I don't know; but there is a reason. Our feeble minds can never completely understand God, but we still dare to try.
Scientists may try to tell you that time can't speed up.
Scientists have always thought the universe had stopped growing, but they have been discovering it is growing in leaps and bounds.
Some scientists try to say we evolved from apes, but they cannot answer why there are still apes. They should all have turned into humans.
Scientists are just people too and they don't really know. Most of their predictions are just theories, but they are very good at making the public believe it is truth.
Could time be speeding up scientifically? Let's look at a couple studies I have looked at. First, the magnetic North pole moves around 50 miles daily. It has moved approximately 600 miles in 100 years. Scientists have claimed that North and South poles change places every once in awhile. Could that possibly be taking place? Could we be spinning just a little faster making time go faster? Even if they say no way, I believe it is so.
Why I Believe
God split the Red Sea for Moses.
Jesus brought Lazarus back from the dead.
God brought down the walls of Jericho with a blow of horns.
No scientist would ever claim any of these things possible.
If God wanted to speed up time. He can! So why would He? For those here on Earth that love and worship Him. There is no scripture that comes out and says that God will make the days faster than this one:
Matthew 24:21-22 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
Friends, family, strangers and enemies, we are in those days. At any moment you may here a loud trumpet and the skies may split to reveal forces from Heaven led by our King and Lord on a brilliant white horse. His name: Emmanuel, Jesus; the risen Savior who defeated death, sin and disease.
Please don't think you can wait longer. At any moment, it could be. It will be!
It is all very simple. Stop believing man and believe God. The prophecies and predictions in the Bible have been more accurate then any other. Nostradamus has no where near the perfect prediction record the Bible has.
I think of the young children, babies and such all clothed in white singing before God. I picture the great light and the happiness that will be for eternity. I then look across the great expanse and see so many who could have, but didn't. Whose screams of woe and darkness and everlasting fire just make me want to cry.
God wants no one in that place. He loves us all.
Just ask; I know He will receive you. He did me. He will you!
In God's Time
A baby is conceived and comes to earth... in God’s time
A seeking soul finds spiritual birth...in God’s time
Flowers bloom so beautifully in spring...in God’s time
The birds build their nest as they sing...in God’s time
We feel the evening breeze softly blow...in God’s time
And assurance is given that He loves us so...in His time
Yet, when troublesome times come and skies are gray,
Too often we complain.
A man named Job did this one day,
And his life was never the same -
Until he awakened and began to see,
It was working for his own good.
He bowed his knee and finally
At last he understood...
Shall we accept good and not the bad?
The happy times and not the sad?
All things are from God’s own hand,
And are working according to His plan...In His time
So, when the storms of life linger
With dark clouds all about,
Let us look to our Saviour
Knowing the sun will come out...In His Time
May we trust Him whatever comes our way -
His grace is sufficient for us each day.
Then we’ll understand fully as time goes by,
When one day we enter the kingdom on high...In God’s Time.
