2 Peter 3:8-9

Moreover, dear friends, do not ignore this: with the Lord, one day is like a thousand years and a thousand years like one day. The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise, as some people think of slowness; on the contrary, He is Patient with you; for it is not His purpose that anyone should be destroyed, but that everyone should turn from his sins.

In good times, people pray that God be generous with time; in bad/hard times the last thought to occur is to ask Him for the same generosity.

Everything takes time. Building and tearing down. The illusion that tearing down is “faster” and “easier” is one great mirage of time. For God to build His child up, He must first break them down. God can skip the “tear down” part, but He takes no short cuts; hence to be His child you must be sifted, renovated. If anyone has ever taken an “old” house and renovated, you know that “timetables” will be in constant flux.

Time is the most illusionary aspects of this life. Every single author of scripture said the exact same thing before their earthly life ceased.

Be ready, Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah is coming soon!!

Yeshua, Himself used the same words both at His earthly leave and in Revelations. How many since?? Do you tell people this? If not, you are missing something vital; something all “the greats” before you had. A sense of what it means to say soon. Peter touches on it in the chapter above.  Listen as he expands…

2 Peter 3:15-16

And think of our Lord’s patience as deliverance, just as our dear brother Saul (Paul) also wrote you, following the wisdom God gave him. Indeed, he speaks about these things in all his letters. They contain some things that are hard to understand, things which the uninstructed and unstable distort, to their own destruction, as they do the other Scriptures.

Note: the other Scriptures referred to here are Old Testament writings. As Peter writes this he has no idea that roughly a thousand years later his own (and Paul’s) letters would be ordained by God to become Scriptures :-). The “timing” is absolutely not coincidental!

One of the greatest gifts God gives is Time. It is also the gift we as people are the least eloquent of giving. Our perception of time is so distorted we don’t know how. The only way we become educated about what Time really is – is at Yeshua, Himself’s  feet. Incidently Paul was taught by Yeshua, Himself after He returned to the Father. Its in Acts if you are curious.

Now note the verses at the beginning. Notice the words?

Do not ignore this.

When Peter said this it was important. Time is not linear or chronological or any of the “things” you learn in science class. That concept of time is cyclical…structure given by God to measure our days for the purpose of giving man much needed definition to their daily/nightly needs.

The Time that is often confused with this is spoken of in Psalms 31 by David

Psalms 31:15

But, I, trust in You, Adonai (Lord); I say, “You are my God.” My times are in Your hand;

To be sure David is speaking of the cyclical times, but moreover he is referring to every aspect of Time in which God would use him! And God is still using him today!!

Time is no mystery to God, nor does it need be strained! Once we have listened to its Author about it. We, too, will say what David said and be completely changed in how we pray to and for when asking God for “it” (time). It will also become obvious that the greatest gift one can give; first and foremost to God, but then anyone is Time!

We live in what the whole Bible refers to as “the Time of the End”. This is no disaster/traumatic filled thing as is taught and hollywood-ized today. This is AMAZING perfection and purpose. Time is wrapping up, so to speak! Do not ignore or neglect to ask Adonai what this means! Take notes on what He says and Stand Firm as instructed, use every bit of time as He directs because its important. Don’t be flippant about your seconds, minutes or hours folks; because the first thing Yeshua says is “You don’t have Time. As in ownership or possession. His hands are the only Ones who move on the Clock of Heaven 🙂

Grace and peace in Yeshua the Messiah ❤
