Is God Processing Time?
This has been an adventure with the Lord the past week. Answers to some of my questions came. I learned a long time ago, when God gives me something from his word, share it. Even though I may not have a full understanding of every aspect of the lessons.
As a Christian believer, I want to be effective for my Saviour Jesus Christ. I assume most believers feel the same way. One question I tried to understand is why doesn’t everyone want to be saved? Go to heaven? I understand some just flat out don’t care.
The roots of beliefs are what nourishes the tree or plant. But the roots aren’t the only thing. You have sunlight too. So what is the root of beliefs? Process. Let me explain.
People say there is no time with God. God is the same yesterday, today and forever. Scripture does say that. But God is the one who laid out time. Scripture says in many areas, in so and so month on such and such day, do this or that happened.
We know God points to specific days or times in scripture. The prophecies of the deliverer coming to Israel while in bondage in Egypt. Daniel had visions the archangel Gabriel came to explain, to help Daniel understand the times of world empires. The prophecies of the Messiah Jesus Christ and he would be killed and raise from the dead. Even the church is told of a time of tribulation. A time Jesus calls believers up to meet in the air and why? Because God has not appointed believers to the time of his wrath, just as scripture says.
So to say there is no time with God – I would disagree. God established time. God created the sun to rule by day and the moon and stars to rule by night. This established the time of day called daytime and night time. And God created this time before he created mankind. But in heaven, there is no night time, time of darkness.
So when God gave his word and his word was written in the volume of a book, among other things, God was telling of “things of time”. We learn of the time if creation, Israel, the Messiah, the church and even about heaven and hell.
So here is a question. Let’s look at two scripture verses and ask a question.
Matthew 7:13-14 KJV “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”
Luke 13:24 KJV “Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.”
If God tells all of us how to get to heaven, why isn’t everyone going to heaven? Why doesn’t everyone get saved? Yes, I understand the parable of the sower and how Satan takes the seed of God’s word in Luke 8: 10-15.
But all of mankind has the same information from God, his word. So why are few going to heaven? I didn’t say few are going to heaven, God says few are going to heaven in his word. My question is why? Yes, some believe God’s word and others do not. But there is more to it than that. Do you know the answer?
I submit the answer is one word. Process. People do not know how to process the information from God’s word. So people look to God or preachers or other people. And we will pick it up from here next time. Until next time.
