Praise the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! Through Christ, God has blessed us with every spiritual blessing that heaven has to offer. Before the creation of the world, he chose us through Christ to be holy and perfect in his presence. Because of his love he had already decided to adopt us through Jesus Christ. He freely chose to do this so that the kindness he had given us in his dear Son would be praised and given glory. Through the blood of his Son, we are set free from our sins. God forgives our failures because of his overflowing kindness. He poured out his kindness by giving us every kind of wisdom and insight when he revealed the mystery of his plan to us. He had decided to do this through Christ. He planned to bring all of history to its goal in Christ. Then Christ would be the head of everything in heaven and on earth. God also decided ahead of time to choose us through Christ according to his plan, which makes everything work the way he intends. Ephesians 1 :3-11
I’m thinking about time warps again!
Time warps remind me of an experience I had on at least one occasion. It was when I was driving down a local highway. All of a sudden I experienced this weird rewind feeling and the car that was just passing me seemed to rewind for a split millisecond before it passed me again.
I will make the shadow cast by the sun go back the ten steps it has gone down on the stairway of Ahaz.'” So the sunlight went back the ten steps it had gone down. Isaiah 38:8
It was the strangest feeling in this world ruled by time.
Yesterday, my son and I were watching a Discovery show on the Bermuda Triangle. They were interviewing a pilot who made a 1,000 mile journey in less than 3 minutes.
The scientist they interviewed
clearly speculated explained that time is a flat plane, and on this plane are points A and B. If you fold the flat plane together the points will touch. That could explain what happened to this pilot. He might have experienced a time continuum where two points in time touched and caused time to appear to speed up. The narrator made the point that even Charles Lindbergh experienced this same phenomena as he flew over the Bermuda Triangle…hmmm…triangle….trinity…..hmmm.
After watching this show I felt the desire to watch “Somewhere In Time.”
In this movie Richard Collier (Christopher Reeve) travels back in time from 1980 to 1912 to meet Elise McKenna (Jane Seymour) an actress performing at the Grand Hotel. He does this by removing all things that remind him of the current time, lieing on a bed, and hypnotizing himself back in time. It worked! He pursues Elise and she falls in love with him. The most poignant part of the movie is when she is on stage and she deviates from her normal script…
Some have called this movie the greatest love story ever told. I would argue there is one greater. It
is being was written by the Sovereign of Time Author of Life…
…you killed the author of life, but God raised him from the dead. We are witnesses of this. Acts 3:15
And maybe, just maybe, those time warps people experience are that moment in time when this ‘Author of Life’ turns the page and the flat planes of time meet at points A and B.
So, the sun stood still and the moon stopped, till the nation avenged itself on its enemies, as it is written in the Book of Jashar. The sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed going down about a full day. Jos 10:13
There is a part of me that believes that eternity exists simply because when you love someone completely and perfectly time doesn’t matter.
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end. Ecc 3:11
Father in Heaven, Jesus changed my life with His sweetness. Jesus is that man that every person dreams of in the deepest most secret reaches of their heart. No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what you have prepared for those who love you”–Give us perseverance to wait out our days here on earth ruled by time until that moment when we are gathered in the air with you, the Author of Life, the Alpha and Omega, The Beginning and The End, our Greatest Love. May we not fail to recognize you in eternity. Amen Jesus, Amen!
Oh…did I mention? In the end Richard and Elise meet in Heaven?
