THE IMPORTANCE OF TIME
TIME is the space between two Eternities – Eternity Past and ETERNITY Future.
God dwells in Eternity and Promised that WHOSOEVER REPENTS AND BELIEVES IN HIS SON, JESUS CHRIST AS LORD, WILL ALSO DWELL IN ETERNITY WITH HIM!!! WOW!!! TIME is the Period given to Man to live on Earth before he dies and enters Eternity! In Eternity there are two places only – in Heaven with God or in Hell with Satan! Where is Eternity? It is at the end of one’s last breath!! In Eternity TIME shall be no more!! Where will you spend Eternity?
TIME began when God Created the Universe & all therein by His Spoken Word & God hangs the Earth on NOTHING! Man was formed from the dust of the Earth & God Breathed into Man the Breath of Life & Man became a Living Soul; God created Man in His Image & Likeness! God caused Man to sleep, then took a Rib from Man’s side & Created a Woman for Man. God Created them – Male & Female to Replenish the Earth & God gave Man Dominion over all the works of His Hands! Thus, God gave us the evening and the morning as One Day. God Created the Sun, Moon, the Stars to separate Light from Darkness & He gave us Seasons. On the 7th day God rested from all His works! Nothing has changed since then!
TIME IS MEASURED by moments, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and years!!
Ecclesiastes 3: 1-11 “To everything there is a season, and a time to every Purpose under the Heaven! A time to be born and a time to die: a time to plant, and a time to root up that which is planted: a time to kill, and a time to heal: a time to break down and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh: a time to mourn, and a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing: a time to get, and a time to lose: a time to keep, and a time to cast away: A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, a time to speak: a time to love, & a time to hate: a time of war & a time of peace. What profit hath he that works in that wherein he labors? I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it. He hath made everything beautiful in His time: also He hath set the World in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God makes from the Beginning to the End.”
However, one day in TIME, Man had sinned against God by disobeying His command & lost his Inheritance to God’s enemy, Satan. Thereafter, every Child born in this World is a sinner: Death doomed in the Kingdom of Darkness and governed by Satan. Read in John 3: 16-36
Then in Galatians 4: 4, 5 we read, “But when the fullness of the TIME was come, God sent forth His Son, made of a Woman, made under the Law, to Redeem them that were under the Law, that we might receive the Adoption of Sons.”
When Jesus began to preach, He said, “The TIME is fulfilled, and the Kingdom of God is at hand: Repent ye, and Believe the Gospel.” Mark 1: 15
On another occasion when Jesus did His first miracle, He said to Mary, His mother: “Woman, what have I to do with thee? Mine HOUR is not yet come.” John 2: 4
From the above you will see that GOD IS IN CONTROL and His Children who are Born-Again belong to the Family of God. Their sins have been Remitted by the Blood of the Lamb!! Psalm 139: 14,15 & Psalm 138
Again read in Eccl. 11:5 “As thou knowest not what is the way of the Spirit, nor how the bones do grow in the womb of her that is with child: even so thou knowest not the works of God Who maketh all.” In Psalm 31: 15 says, “My times are in Thy Hands.”
God through His Son invited us to come to Him and be saved and we did! Matt. 11:28 Now we are the Sons of God and Jesus has taught us through the Word of God that we have a Mission while we are in this World within our span of life! Mathew 28: 18-20
As His Children we are His Witnesses and Ambassadors and we are to win Souls from the Kingdom of Darkness and bring them to the Kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Let not the Ambassadors of God become agents for the Devil. God has prepared Hell for the Devil and his angels and for all those whose names are not written in His Book of Life will go there.
Everyone have an Appointment with God and then Judgment! Heb. 9: 27
Read from Eph. 5: 1-18 – let us Redeem the Time that is left to us before the night falls when no man can work.
Go after souls for whom Jesus Christ died and bring them into His Kingdom before they perish. Witness to them, give out tracts, and pray for them. Eternity is too long and there is only one way in!
Therefore Children of God do all you can, as fast as you can and in every way you can for the Lord Jesus Christ is Coming soon!!
We do not know what TIME has been left to us, so let us awake to the Hour in which we are living and rescue the perishing souls!!
SPEAK THE TRUTH LOVINGLY (for you don’t want them to perish) FOR THE TRUTH ALONE WILL SET THEM FREE FROM THE DEVIL’S DOMINION!!
TRUTH IS A PERSON – “JESUS SAITH UNTO HIM, “I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE: NO MAN COMETH TO THE FATHER BUT BY ME” JOHN 14: 6
God is counting on us to be His Faithful Witnesses for He said “Be Faithful unto death and you will receive a Crown of life.”
TIME is Precious so Redeem the TIME given us and win Precious souls in our World.
