God is the giver of time, the birther of seasons. Who is man that he can reckon such things, for God is Sovereign. What man can create places and uphold the sun, the moon, causing snow to fall in one land and sun to shine in another.
Man knows not the things of God, for man is God’s creation. Man reckons to know such perplexities as how the sea stops at the shoreline or how the current rises, yet man knows not these things of God.
And God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years, Genesis 1:14 esv
Now concerning the times and the seasons, brothers, you have no need to have anything written to you. 1 Thesssalonians 5:1 esv
Even the stork in the heavens knows her times, and the turtledove, swallow, and crane keep the time of their coming, but my people know not the rules of the Lord. Jeremiah 8:7esv
Watch and Pray
Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour. Matthew 25:13esv
What knowledge of good and evil does man obtain, except that which Yahweh allows. What breath can man take, except that which His Spirit creates. How can one reckon the things of God.
The beasts do well to live, breathe, dwell and then they are no more, yet this creature man thinks himself to be a holder of time. What can man see, but that which God has commanded the light upon. What man can hear except God open the ear. Time and Life are with Him.
But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 2 Peter 3:8esv
But I trust in you, O Lord; I say, “You are my God.” My times are in your hand; rescue me from the hand of my enemies and from my persecutors! Psalm 31:14-15esv
How can man plan the time struggling to foresee that which may come. God is the giver of time and line of events, all seasons are upheld and changed by His hand. Howbeit that man take hold of the ancient timepiece wherewith the stars are hung at night and the comets burst and give off twinkles of light.
Looking to Future
Man shall see in the days ahead that it is on God alone the whole earth stands, for He is sovereign and all is moved by His powerful right hand. When the sky is darkened and the moon turned to blood, when the land shakes and creates its flood, who is man that time is in his hand.
Elohim the only Creator shall snatch away all that He pleases, and in a moment even the breath of the beasts seizes. Frozen in time will be the rhyme placed in the hearts with pride, and death and destruction will see no end.
Yahweh the Sovereign Lord will have His say on what times and seasons begin and end.
As leaves lose their water and wither away so is ones life but a vapor they say. Discolorations and dryness of touch, they crumbled as dirt and the earth they flush.
So it is with man for from dust they came and flesh and bone will make ash display. What is time that man can understand, as it is El Elyon that has caused us to remain. The rocks will someday tumble and be swallowed up by the sea, the blackest of skies will come to be.
Now when these things begin to take place, straighten up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.” Luke 21:28esv
Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all has taken place. Luke 21:31esv
Pride of man
Who is man that the power of the Almighty they can withstand. Pride and arrogance fills in the skin as man likens himself to God all over again.
The Creator and the creature must be friends, for this life knows no end. Only changing of places and times and seasons again.
He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding; Daniel 2:21esv
How does salvation and humbling come to this creature whom Elohim did create. She cried out in wonder as her heart filled with grief.
And standing behind him at his feet, weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears and wiped them with the hair of her head and kissed his feet and anointed them with the ointment. Luke 7:38
What is time that man can understand, simply to live every moment holding His hand. Believing in His love can one withstand all that is coming that brings the end.
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. Eph. 2:8-9
Book of Life
You have kept count of my tossings; put my tears in your bottle. Are they not in your book? Psalm 56:8
A time to be born and a time to be born again, what is man that God is mindful of him. Those who love and with friendship begins will come to know the Father again.
What is it man that causes him to worship again, the Spirit of Truth bringing back unto Him. Embracing those who return and settling the fears, the giver of time has given again.
He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” Rev. 21:4
