Are We Losing Time?
This morning I was reading again in the book of Revelation, reading in chapter 10. I came across a passage I had read a week or so ago, that seemed to have stuck out as I read it. Something about how there will no longer be an interval of time. The passage is Rev. 10:5-7:
5 Then the angel that I had seen standing on the sea and on the land raised his right hand to heaven.6 He swore an oath by the One who lives forever and ever, who created heaven and what is in it, the earth and what is in it, and the sea and what is in it: “There will no longer be an interval of time,7 but in the days of the sound of the seventh angel, when he will blow his trumpet, then God’s hidden plan will be completed, as He announced to His servants the prophets.”
As I'm going through my subscribed videos on YouTube, and scanning through titles of various others, I see one saying the "End of the World August 2013." Of course as a Christian, I believe that before "the end," the Antichrist comes first, and rules for seven years. Then Messiah returns, executes justice on his enemies, and establishes His kingdom for one thousand years. Then "the End" will come, with sinners being thrown into the eternal hell, along with Satan and his legion of angels and demons (Nephilim spirits, neither human nor animal).
Turns out this video on the end of the World, is really speaking about the end of the Old Order, and the beginning of the New World Order, which still may begin this month in a tangible way. Having been a Philosophy major, I knew that there were several theories out there as to what time is, and that today it is largely accepted and taught that time is a fourth dimension in which we live and move. And this new age video is teaching that time, from the end of 2012, through the year of 2013, is gradually diminishing to nothing.
This struck me as very curious, having seen this in the Bible. There is something to it. We know from scripture that God is outside of time, and it is always taught that He can look down upon any moment in time from His perspective being outside of it. I believe that, though I have questions as to how that works, what it actually looks like. But maybe when I think about it, I"m over-philosophizing it.
One of the prophecies about the last times given in Daniel 12 is that knowledge will increase. Now with the rise of computers, Internet, artificial intelligence, etc., information doubles every couple of years or so. Time travel has long been an object which certain scientists were trying to figure out.
Some who do research on the aliens conclude that they are the beings spoken of in the Bible, and that they are in fact inter-dimensional beings. Possible able to navigate in the dimension of time, and other dimensions we don't understand yet. One hypothesis is that these Nephilim and fallen angels, when they "reveal" themselves, they may give mankind the secret to time, thus fulfilling the scripture in Rev. 10, that there "is no longer an interval of time".
It is hard to fathom what that could mean, having grown up and lived my life, judging and basing everything in my life from a fixed point, and then succeeding moments based upon that initial frame of reference (i.e. my birth, the landing of the Pilgrims in New England, the birth of Jesus, etc.).
But if things play out as taught by the New Agers, with the coming of the New World Order, we are all going to have some major shifts in our worldviews. Knowing that God's word is truth, I know the leader of the Globalist empire will only reign for seven years, then Messiah Yeshua will return. He will reign for one-thousand years, the great judgment will occur, then the everlasting age will finally begin, and as the old hymn says, "When we've been there 10,000 years, bright shining as the sun, we've no less days to sing God's praise, than when we first begun!"
