WHAT IS YOUR TIME ZONE?
*WISDOM FOR TODAY*
*WHAT IS YOUR TIME ZONE?*
Matthew 24:36, 40-41
*But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.*
*Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.*
*Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.*
*Insight and Highlight.*
Job 41:11 *....whatsoever is under the whole heaven is mine."*
Acts 7: 50 *Hath not my hand made all these things?*
The world is in different time zones.
As some people are sleeping, some are at work. As some people are about to go to sleep, some people are waking up.
Each person in these different time zones must work with their's and others' time zones.
Every appointment with others in other time zones must reflect a time suitable for a smooth working relation.
Time zones with other nations do often affect us.
For example, though your sleeping time may be a working time for a viable client, you have no choice but to oblige. However, your time zone and nobody else's time zone will ever affect Jesus's second coming.
This is because the coming of Jesus will be a unified event at one point in time, Matt 24:36-41.
Ecclesiastes 3 tells us there are times alloted for everything.
This tells us that the time for all things differ.
As God tells us here, so also does nature corroborate God's word.
The glory of the sun differs from the moon, yet they both shine at their times. They both shine when it is their time, Ps 104:19, 1 Cor 15:41, 2 Cor 10:12.
However, as different as the glory of the sun and the moon is, as different as our times are, the coming of the Lord will unify God's Kingdom judgment on all the earth at the same point in time.
The coming of Christ will unite every saint of God. It will happen at the same time, irrespective of what the different time zones are.
The world will be "unified" in lamentation of those who missed the "taking away" and wishing they had not been left behind.
Some people will be in the middle of what they are doing (sleeping, working, whatever) when it happens.
Matt 24: 36 says ,*"....that day.."*, which translates to 'a day', but nobody knows.
It does not specify daylight or dark hours but calls it *'...day...'*, it has both light and dark hours."
Gen 1 tells us *"..the evening and the morning..."* were one day.
Luke 17:30, 34 specify both day and night.
This tells us of God's total control of the entire universe. He is the *"...governor among the nations"*, Ps 22:28.
Though people may structure their nations independently of God, He, by structure of the positioning of the earth and its rotation around the sun, can subject the whole world under a one time at His coming.
Remember, Deut 10:14 *Behold, the heaven and the heaven of heavens is the LORD'S thy God, the earth also, with all that therein is.*
What will you be doing at the coming of the Lord?
Your time zone will not influence or affect His second coming!
Psalm 24:1 *A Psalm of David. The earth is the LORD'S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.*
*Call to Word action.*
Psalms 22:28 *For the kingdom is the LORD'S: and he is the governor among the nations.*
*The Christian clarion duty.*
Acts 7:49 *Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool...."*
Lord, l may miss appointments by time zones, but let me not miss your appointed time to take me with You at Your second coming, in Jesus' name.
Good morning all, and have a blessed day today.
God bless you.
