The Merging of Time
A long time friend recently reminded me of a prophetic word I had released about “time.” Though we have many recorded words about time, this one was uniquely different. Unfortunately, we do not have all of the specifics of this particular word, but here is a brief excerpt.
“Have you noticed? Time is changing. It is increasing, not decreasing. Once again, eternity knocks at the door. Time as you know it will never be the same again. It’s decayed state is fading away. Watch, as the zones of time merge. The two shall become one.” (September 20, 2015)
Over the last couple of years, there has been a lot of discussion about getting rid of “day light saving time.” In November 2018, California voted to end DST.
One media group reported: “In addition to releasing us from the burden of having to set our clocks every few months, this will also reduce the number of time zones in the United States from four to two.”
Presently, this 100-year-old tradition, which was initially instigated during World War I, is now on the chopping block in the United States. DST is used in over 70 countries worldwide and affects over 1 billion people every year. The beginning and end dates vary from one country to another.
I draw your attention to all of this to point out something very simple, but yet spiritually profound. Time, as we know it, will never be the same again.
The Transformation of Time
Something extraordinary is happening to time, both naturally and spiritually.
I believe “time zones” as we have known them, are beginning to merge into a singularity of the past, present and future.
From a spiritual perspective, I am of the mind that multiple time zones are the bi-product of sin. Prior to sin entering into the world there was only one time zone called eternity. After sin was birthed into the atmosphere, another time came into being. Now we have time in heaven and time on earth. However, ultimately there can only be one time. This supernatural realm of time called “eternity” is rapidly swallowing up the temporal state of all creation.
Lifted Up Into Another Time
Through Jesus Christ, we have been lifted up; reinstated (seated in heavenly places) into the eternal time zone of heavenly realms. As the love of God increases in his people, time on earth continues to come under the influence of eternal life.
When the disciples asked Jesus how they should pray, Jesus said pray, “…Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as in heaven…” Of course, this is only a portion of what has been termed as the “Lord’s Prayer.” This divine intent of heaven on earth is an unstoppable reality. As the kingdom of God increases on the earth, it continues to push out death and decay, which are properties of temporal time.
Recently, a scientist named Aubrey de Grey, who studies regenerative medicine, reported, “new biotechnology will let people who are already alive today reach the ripe old age of 1,000 years.”
Come on God!
Of course, most scientists mock at the idea of mankind living beyond 150 years, let alone a 1000.
The prophet Isaiah quotes God as saying:
“Behold I create new heavens and a new earth; and the former things will not be remembered or come to mind…” (Isaiah 65:17)
“…No longer will people be considered old at one hundred. Only the curse (cursed mentality) will die that young…”(Isaiah 65:20)
If your first thought in hearing this is “Your crazy! This is impossible!” Then I know I am on the right track, because “All things are possible for those who believe.” All of the above are outside the scope of earthly possibilities. Our only hope for seeing and embracing this kind of Kingdom reality is through the heart and mind of Christ.
Signs of the merging of times are all around us. To the degree we are able to walk in this Kingdom revelation is the degree we will see and experience heaven on earth.
