July 21, 2009, Bible Study Time Notes
Because we humans see time by the rising and setting of the sun it is difficult sometimes to consider something that never changes. We have to remember that time is an earthly element alone. It is a way to organize our lives.In this organization many forget the emphasis God would like to make about time. Spiritual is a very different realm than our physical being. God created a two fold being the Bible tells us in Genesis – the temporary body and eternal soul.
As creatures of time, the Bible tells us it swiftly flies away.
James 4:14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.
Many believe that there are no time constraints or occasions to worry about time. When young you look at future as forever away with unlimited time.
Luke 12:19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.
We need to seek the unchangeable God.
Hebrews 1:10 -12 And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands: They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment; And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail
Our earthly time lines must take unto consideration our eternal soul.
2Corinthians 6:2 For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.
This is the most important and beautiful experience is when temporary body links with God’s plan for eternity. Otherwise we are so sadley lacking. End is coming to earth we need to seek the Lord while He may be found. He is only found in Salvation – a true conversion from sin and self to what God would make of us.
Thank God that we can put our hope and trust in this changeless God, whose words and principals will not change. Not for you or for me will they change, and not for kings or great rules. God is God and He changes not.There is such a confidents and assurance minding both the physical and spriritual in Him! You can safely place your two part being completely in His hands.
