He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons that the Father has fixed by His own authority.” Acts 1:8
God is not bound in time. These are hypothetical constructs built to describe the rhythms of the created earth, marked by the sun and moon and stars. Time is finite; it has a beginning. This is confirmed by Einstein’s general relativity that points to a beginning to the universe, linking time to space and matter, both of which are creations, not the Creator. Time is a measurement determined by God laid in the foundations of the earth when the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy.
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. Reality or what is indeed true is blocked from our vision by this thing called “time,” sort of like not being able to see all of the spectrums of light, but yes, they are there.
The dwarves in The Last Battle were trapped by the lies of how they chose to perceive the world. Ungrateful, they did not recognize the gifts of God. Unwillingly to take a step of faith, they lived in a bleak hut of muck and rotted vegetables.
Aslan raised his head and shook his mane. Instantly a glorious feast appeared on the Dwarfs’ knees: pies and tongues and pigeons and trifles and ices, and each Dwarf had a goblet of good wine in his right hand. But it wasn’t much use. They began eating and drinking greedily enough, but it was clear that they couldn’t taste it properly. They thought they were eating and drinking only the sort of things you might find in a Stable. One said he was trying to eat hay and another said he had got a bit of an old turnip and a third said he’d found a raw cabbage leaf. And they raised golden goblets of rich red wine to their lips and said, ‘Ugh! Fancy drinking dirty water out of a trough that a donkey’s been at! Never thought we’d come to this.’ But very soon every Dwarf began suspecting that every other Dwarf had found something nicer than he had, and they started grabbing and snatching, and went on to quarreling, till in a few minutes there was a free fight and all the good food was smeared on their faces and clothes or trodden under foot. But when at last they sat down to nurse their black eyes and their bleeding noses, they all said: ‘Well, at any rate, there’s no Humbug here. We haven’t let anyone take us in The Dwarfs are for the Dwarfs!’
‘You see,’ said Aslan. ‘ They will not let us help them. They have chosen cunning instead of belief. Their prison is only in their own minds, yet they are in that prison; and so afraid of being taken in that they cannot be taken out.
What is true:
For as by a man came death, by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive.1 Corinthians 15:21-22
He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world.1 John 2:2
And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself.” John 12:32
For the love of Christ controls us, because we have concluded this: that one has died for all, therefore all have died; and he died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised.
The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. 2 Corinthians 5:13-22
The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. Thus let me be about my life, following in His footsteps of reconciliation, living in the light as He is the light.
He hath made every thing beautiful in His time.
