What is Time?

Time has always been a mystery in the mind of man.  When our lives are going well, time seems to fly by.  When we are having challenges, time seems to stop or at least slowdown. There is a reason for this odd perception of time.

•        Time is metaphysical – an idea in our minds.
•        You cannot extract it from the universe.  It does not exist as a measurable entity.
•        Time, as kept by humankind is not time; it is time-interval: the accumulation of time intervals from some origin.  For example, the number of years A.D.; the number of days in a year; the number of hours in a day starting at midnight; the number of days in your life-time, etc.

Time Interval

The Official Definition of “time-interval,” is the length of the second.
In my lifetime the accuracy of “time-interval” has improved a billion-fold.  The earth speeds up or slows down every day by about 0.0001 of a second in the 86400 seconds that transpire in a day. That is about nine digits of accuracy.  Now the best atomic clocks have eighteen digits of accuracy.  That is like a second in the age ofa the universe as currently science believes it to be.  When scientists realized they could extract much more accurate “time-interval” from atomic clocks than could be obtained from any astronomical measurement, the second was redefined.

This new definition states: “The second is the duration of 9 192 631 770 periods of the radiation corresponding to the transition between the two hyperfine levels of the ground state of the cesium-133 atom.” (13th CGPM (1967), Resolution 1)

Since most of my readers are not from a scientific background, you may not have understood the “new definition”. You are probably wondering how all this relates to you. The bottom line is, in the grand scheme of things, our personal “Time Interval” is very short. We all face the experience of death, some sooner than others.  Our big personal question is how well have we used our time-interval here on earth?

What Is Truth

What is TruthWhen Pilate asked Jesus, “What is truth?” Pilate told the Jews he was satisfied with his answer and could “find in him no fault at all.” (John 18:38)  Jesus had already answered this question for His disciples: “I am the way, the truth, and the life.  No man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6)  The early followers of Jesus called the Christian movement, “The Way.”  Jesus is the way back to the Father and the greatest of all the gifts of God — Eternal Life. (highlights mine)

He extended the great promise, “If any man will do his will, he shall KNOW of the doctrine, whether it be of God or whether I speak of myself.” (John 7:17) In other words, if we live the doctrine He is teaching, we can know it is true by the fruits. Wherefore by their fruits, ye shall know them.” (Luke 6:43-44)

Resurrection – Capstone of the Atonement

Most Christians look to Christ to be forgiven of their sins and that believing on Him is the door way to salvation.  And do not the scriptures teach us this?  Satan will do anything he can to take us away from understanding the infinite atonement. However, the searching soul will ask, “Have false traditions crept in so that we miss the full power and beauty of the infinite atonement of our Lord and Savior?”  This blog article and following ones will better help us appreciate the infinite atonement.

The Capstone of His Infinite Atonement

Most Christians look to the cross and to His suffering for forgiveness of sins.  We often hear the phrase, “We are thankful for His atoning sacrifice.”  When studied, we find that His glorious resurrection is the capstone step of His infinite atonement, and when it occurred  2000 years ago the early saints saw it as such. For Christ to go from infinite suffering to infinite glory in those three days changed the world forever, and the early Christians could not contain their joy knowing, “He is risen!” – as proclaimed in the scriptures and so profoundly in Handel’s oratorio “Messiah.”

We find there are seven fantastic accomplishments in His infinite atonement, and seven sub-steps to each of these.  Seven is the number of perfection or completion in the Lord’s arithmetic.  And the scriptures outline all 49 of these steps.

How to Increase Your Faith in God

Faith and Belief in God and Jesus Christ seem to be waning quickly. Many are gravitating toward secularism and materialism, a belief system that rejects religion, or the belief that any religion should not be part of their lives or the affairs of the state. Christianity, as well as other religions are declining.  I write this to counter this dangerous trend.

The Need for Faith in Religion and Science

Ironically, I show in my book that scientists need to have faith as well. In 1931 Kurt Gödel proved the famous inconsistency theorem, which in essence says that science cannot prove the consistency of a system; or in other words, they need to have faith in some set of assumptions or axioms.  Even though science seems to be about facts, faith is needed there as well, even though they will not admit it.

In general, we cannot absolutely-publicly prove God in this mortal sphere; He designed it that way. God wants us to start by faith, and grow in faith, until we come to know Him personally.

Jesus Christ has offered us eternal life, the greatest of all the gifts of God, if we will believe in Him. (John 3:16)  Because we are given free choice (agency), we can choose to accept that invitation or not.  That choice to believe in Him  is the most important choice you will make in this life.  You already made that choice to follow Jesus before you were born; else, you would not be here.

Below, I share evidence for you to believe and receive the enormous blessings that will be yours as you accept His invitation to hearken to His voice and have a fullness of joy and eternal life as promised by Him.

While most of us live by faith, many prophets have come to know God face to face.  We have their testimonies and many have been martyred because they would not deny what they knew.

Jesus said, “If any man will do his will [God’s], he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or I speak of myself.” (John 7:17)  It is my personal experience that this statement is true.  I know God lives and loves us, and I share the following to help you know that.

The Lord’s Space Age Program

While the world is doing their space age activities with GEOs, MEOs, and LEOs, the Lord is doing a far greater space age program in preparation for this satellite called EARTH, to be celestialized.

The Earth’s Space Age Program

The GEOs are Geosynchronous Earth Orbit Satellites with an orbit period the same as the earth’s rotation period so that they appear at the same place in the sky over the equator. There are over 200 of them and they are mainly used for data transfer and telecommunications. They are at an altitude of about 6.7 earth radii.
