Spiritual Space and Spiritual Time
“Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know: Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain: Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it” (Acts 2:22-24).
In Acts 2:23, the Word informs us that by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, Christ was delivered into the world. When studying the concept it becomes clear that the process consists of the reality that God does not exist in time, He transcends time. Jesus Christ was delivered out of timelessness or eternity, into time memorial. Yet, God does exist in space. God is not bund by time, but because He is omni-present, His domain is space. Not outer-space, like the cosmos, although He exists there as well, but in what we know as space general. There is no space where we cannot find the presence of God.
Thus our terrestrial dilemma becomes the abuse of our God-like character. We have been created in His image and after His likeness. Therefore, we have been given freedom, intellect, ability to intuit, subdue, and power through dominion. Those elements make the human, not just the Christian, possess certain elementary qualities of God. Because of that, we begin to act out of recklessness, due to an abuse of God-like qualities. Consequently, like God, we attempt to exist in space, forgetting that our total earthly existence is not celestial, but terrestrial, strongly and specifically predicated on time. When such a physiological and spiritual condition is ignored or rationalized, spiritual urgency in terms of salvation and a seeking from heaven is impaired.
When the invitation to meet Jesus is extended by the preacher or teacher, and people fail to respond because the believe or hope for more time, they transition into a space-existence, which is highly dangerous considering humanities intimate relationship with time. From a spiritual perspective, remain connected with the urgency of time because it is the biblical barometer the children of Christ must live by. Stay connected to time and remember, you are the clay In The Potter’s Hands. God has paved a way to save you today!
