Beyond Space And Time . . .Page 3

      God hath appointed an affixed space for mankind to have ample opportunity to find "that man" whom he raised from the dead! The 'Time" of ignorance is past; and a day of righteous judgement is approaching. The Bible accords us a novice glimpse of Time. We can attest to biological time, harvest time, lunar time, cyclical time, dynamical time, linear time, times of stress, subjective time, and seasonal time; but for some very strange reason mankind has a tough time connecting mentally to the signs of the Times.

     Jesus reprimanded the religious elite of his time for not being able to discern the "Signs of the Times"! It was Israel's great sin that they were not anticipating a timely visitation from beyond space and time!

     Luke 12:56 Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth, but how is it that ye do not discern this Time?

     That time of course was the first visitation of Jesus!      The season of the second visitation of Jesus to this world is the grand event to which all of linear time is correlated with. God has providentially signalized the nation of Israel to be the timepiece of the seasons.

     Since it is to Israel that Jesus will be coming back, so Israel must have needed to exist for that fortuitous occasion to occur. It was for this very important point that Jesus himself specifically alluded to the parable of the fig tree in its connection to the rebirth of the state of Israel.

     So then; What Time is it? What season is it?

     Israel has been reconstituted among the nations of the world since 1948, and its continued survival within the world's community of peoples is tied directly to a countdown of the season of time known as the "Time of the Gentiles".

     Israel is God's clock! The land of Israel is the face of that clock, while world focus on Jerusalem points to the midnight hour.

     Jesus conveyed to his disciples information which conveys the timing of the last days. In his remarks in the Olivet Discourse, Jesus spelled out a connection between the rebirth of Israel and the conclusion of the Times of the Gentiles. During that generation of time, all the things pertaining to the end of the age were to be accomplished. We today are living inside the waning years of that terminal generation!

      However, time will not yet be ended, nor will the world come to an end. Judgement will come to this world, but the world shall continue for another one thousand years.

     God made a promise to Israel regarding a kingdom upon this planet. That covenant is of course known as the Abrahamic Covenant.

     In Jeremiah 31:35-37 God stipulates this to Israel:

     Thus saith the Lord, which giveth the Sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves that are thereof roar; the Lord of hosts is his name: If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the Lord; then shall the seed of Israel cease from being a nation from before me forever.

     Thus saith the Lord; If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all they have done, saith the Lord. ( See also Jeremiah 33:25-26 )

     God has promised Israel that as long as the sun, moon, and stars continue being signs in the heavens for time, and for seasons; that he also shall not ever forget his covenant with the house of Abraham! So; whenever I go outside at night, and I ponder the sky and review the stars and the vast host displayed in the heavens; and think about the sudden rebirth of tiny little Israel in 1948; "I realize what TIME it is!"

     It is Time for Jesus to come back to this earth! It is Time for Israel to enjoy the blessed fulfillment of God's promises; and for King Jesus to reign upon his throne in the city of David.

     Yes, the end of "time" will come; but only after God has finished striving in time with man; only after Israel has been accorded its time as the pride of all nations during Jesus Millennial reign.

     Revelation 21:1 puts it like this:

     And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away;

     Isaiah 61:19-20 The sun shall be no more thy light by day neither for brightness shall the moon give light unto thee; but the Lord shall be unto thee an everlasting light, and thy God thy glory;

     The sun shall no more go down; neither shall thy moon withdraw itself; for the Lord shall be thine everlasting light, and the days of thy mourning shall be ended!

      Indeed for time to end, the universal clock of the heavens; ( sun, moon, stars, orbits ) must be replaced! But replaced with what?

     Revelation 21:23 says: 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!

     When I hear people mock Bible prophecy, and the relative subject of the imminent return of Jesus, often they remark that Time has always been, for billions of years; and that Time will continue. But unfortunately they ignore the earthly timeclock of Israel and ignore that there is one who will arrive in Jerusalem at the midnight hour; and that: "He is coming from beyond Space and Time!"
