Beyond Space And Time . . .Page 2

     The "last day" in this life, whenever it should come for any believer in Jesus; is like the "last day" of every believer past, present, or future. Thusly the "Last Days" are kaleidoscoped into a single event as each believer passes out of Time into Eternity; making all departure times synonymous with the Great Day of the Lord!

     It is this great gathering of all believers which makes death for the departing Christian a time of tremendous reunion. It is a reunion with other Christians; but it is also a time for union with his eternal extra-dimensional soul and body.

     On those ocasions when a Christian senses within his soul a vibrancy and edification of the Holy Spirit, in reality, that's an innate spiritual longing of the soul contained within his time-bound earthly fleshly body yearning to be united with his eternal heavenly body which is awaiting him in the third or upper heaven.

     II Corinthians 12: 2 speaks of a man caught up into that third heaven, which is beyond space and time. It was the glorious eternal Heaven of God that was being described, a place far beyond our perspectives within the lower cosmological heavens of space.

      From Genesis chapter one, we know that space, time and matter were the raw materials that God used for actually constructing the universe. Light was created as the fourth building block for construction. From these componets God gave fashion and form to a finished product with the design of making it with conformity for life-sustaining specifications!

     We are mere houseguests in someone else's universe, and as guests we are accountable to the owner of this house. He has affixed the time proportions of our visit within his habitat. We gaze upward at the heavens he has prepared as a canopy for our view from our low window vantage point and marvel at the magnificence of the structured universe. We survey the cosmos and search throughout his house looking for secrets to our significance and imagine vain ideas in our minds.

     But Isaiah 40:22 says: It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers; that stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them out as a tent to dwell in. Two thousand two hundred years before Columbus ever speculated about the earth being round; Isaiah relates that the earth was a circle, and that God had stretched out the spacely heavens like a curtain, even crafting the entire universe to be a tent covering for us to dwell inside of. This vast tent entails all of what we speculate to be the second heaven, making earth's immediate atmosphere the environs of the lower part of the heavens. When we realize that eternal Heaven ( 3rd heaven ) is beyond the unfathomable stretches of the second heaven, we catch just a glimmer of the greatness of the Creator!

      The Creator must exist outside of Time. Nothing in the universe can go back to the creation. We can only track the trail that the Creator left behind. He lives in a timeless eternal state dependent on nothing else but his Word!

     Only one who is "I AM" could make all things be!

     Our physical universe has been drastically altered by the fall of man. We now live in a damaged tent, which is deteriorating. Time itself has been affected by man's fallen state. We view time as an absolute, like a single dimension measured by a fixed unchangeable natural master clock. In reality, time is multi-dimensional. Man has simply become trapped in a one-dimensional travel through what we call linear time.

     In creating the earth and its vast tent as a home for man to live in, God never intended for man to be universally lost in time and space. Early humanity lived to 10 times longer than modern man. But God meant for man to be an eternal being, unbound by the time and aging factors of a deteriorating world.       The laws of thermodynamics and entrophy convey

to us that our universe is wearing out. Things in our cosmos, including us, are simply decaying away. Time is taking a toll on everything and everyone. Whereas men seek after a fountain of youth, the bottom line remains that everyone dies and everything continually loses its designed order.

      Ecclesiastes 3:1 states: To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven.

     And so it is that God has utilized "Time" in order to accomplish his good pleasure; to prepare man for living as an eternal righteous being! Without the time progression allotment accorded to mankind, we would have never known God's love, nor ever been afforded the mysterious wonder of grace. Angels, being timeless creatures are accorded only one opportunity to dwell in righteousness and those angels which fell with old Lucifer, made that decision outside of times domain.

     Bible prophecy frequently conveys an immediate and a future fulfillment in time. Time often runs in seasons of cycles, thereby permitiing one event to be cast as a foreshadowing of an event that may be yet future for mankinds linear time journey.

     Although time is measured in history in terms of clocks and calendars, it is also articulated into seasons. These periods of time unfold as God periodically uses it to bend or fashion history according to his divine perspective. Often God diverts the consummation of events through miracles or judgements! God's actions from within his eternal domain can affect mankind's past, present, and our future while we may never even be aware of the ongoing manifest influence of the one who is the great "I am" beyond space and time.

      A consummation of all the ages lies just ahead; it is a time when all of human history and all things under heaven will exhibit themselves to be nothing more than a shadowy preparation for God's eternal habitation with his righteous creatures in that great eternal home beyond space and time.

     God hath already declared that the season of end times has been inniated. He who began time back in Genesis matter of factly instructs us in The Revelation that the time of the consummation of the end of our age, or season is nigh!

     Read carefully Acts 17:24-28 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that He is Lord of Heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;

     Neither is worshipped with mens hands, as though He needed any thing, seeing He giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;

     And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the Times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;

     That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though He be not far from every one of us;

     For in Him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said; For we are also his offspring.

     And in Acts 17:30-31 And the Times of this ignorance God winked at; but Now commandeth all men everywhere to repent:

     Because he hath appointed a day, in which He will judge the world in righteousness by "that man" whom He hath ordained; whereof He hath given assurance unto all men, in that He raised him from the dead.
