God Almighty is a Time Lord.
By existing at ALL points along time (which God created), God lives in TOMORROW as much as He lives in today.
Actually, by creating (and taking command of) ALL that exists, God’s mastery of time is a GIVEN.
IN FACT, time is one of the things God created to give order to the chaotic universe ONCE man was created.
“For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.”
By existing at all places, in all times, God KNOWS what will happen, what has happened and what is happening at the moment.
By existing at all points in time, God KNOWS what will happen in that place which man calls “the future” because God has ALREADY seen that time.
“The future” is as familiar to God as “the past” or “the present” is to one of God’s creations, particularly man.
Because man (and apparently all other created beings) experience time as a linear event, with a beginning, an end and whatever is in between those two points, it is EXTREMELY difficult for man to completely understand how God’s mastery of time IS ONLY ONE OF THE ATTRIBUTES which makes Him All-powerful (omnipotent) and all-knowing (omniscient).
Because God is omnipresent, He KNOWS what will take place before man (or any other created being) can see events happening.
HOWEVER, man has never created a work of fiction which featured an all-powerful, all-knowing God who was omnipresent. There would be no logical way such a being could ever be challenged (let alone beaten or overcome): so any fiction involving such a being would have its ending ALREADY written.
So, any authors which wrote about such a universe and such a God would already have the story written for them.
When Satan challenged God earlier in time, Satan obviously did NOT take into account God mastery of time (and God’s knowledge of what was to come). Otherwise, it would be hard to imagine Lucifer (as Satan was then called) going after God’s place in the cosmos.
“How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.”
Of course, after suffering defeat after defeat at the hands of God, Satan appears to have NOT learned anything from his past experience.
Satan once AGAIN challenges God in the last days.
[Revelation 1-22 has a full account of the happenings.]
God AGAIN wins.
One of the reasons God triumphs is that God already exists in that time we call “the future” and KNOWS what will happen.
Man is EXTREMELY weak and easily deceived.
Why else would man follow Satan (who has NEVER won) against God (who has NEVER lost) during the last days?
WHAT does the reader think about God’s mastery of time?
It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.
DOES the reader believe he is saved?
DOES the reader believe he is NOT saved?
THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
