The Timelessness of Jesus Christ   3 comments

This is from the blog Richard’s Watch:

My thanks go to ‘high plains drifter’ Tim Shey somewhere out on The Road for this excellent contribution to a recent post, which warrants re-publishing in its own right.: 

‘When I think on the word “saved” (as in, “I was saved twenty or thirty years ago” or “when were you saved?” and so on), as a Christian, it is probably an incorrect word or concept. To be saved implies the past. The Lord Jesus Christ is past, present and future. As a Christian, I abide in Christ right here, right now.

‘Let’s say someone surrendered their life to Christ a number of years ago. This is the BEGINNING of being connected with the timeless of Jesus Christ. As we take up our cross and die daily, our body and soul life are put to death, so that the spiritual life within us (Christ) grows stronger and stronger every day. As the passions of the body and soul life dies, time dies. Think of the sinful, physical body as shackled to time: the physical body is born on a certain date (time), it lives for 85 years (time) and then dies on a certain date (time).

‘There is a point in physical time when someone surrenders to timelessness—the Lord Jesus Christ. Worldly people and lukewarm Christians are still bound to time; spiritual Christians are timeless.

‘The power and beauty of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ is that that timeless event (it defied time and space) pierced human time and presented us with the possibility of living a life connected to timelessness and sinlessness (abiding in Christ)—if we act in faith and surrender our lives to Jesus Christ.

‘1 John 1:7: “But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.”

‘The above scripture absolutely implies, not some historical event (time), but the timelessness of Jesus Christ. To an unbeliever, the phrase “and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin” is totally insane: the death of Jesus Christ happened over two thousand years ago (time). To a Christian, what happened at Calvary is happening right here right now (timelessness). If we walk in the light (abide in Christ daily), the blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us (not cleansed us) from all sin.

‘Enoch walked with God and then God took him because (after many years of obeying the Lord through proper blood sacrifices [dying to self] and believing in the future Messiah) he walked in timelessness and eventually timelessness (God) took him. Enoch was no longer shackled by time.

‘Prophets are very timeless because the timeless Holy Ghost inspires them to speak of future events as if they are happening right here right now.

‘Time to stop writing.’

Tim Shey – October 18th, 2016

Wherever you are my cyber-friend [2 Chron 16:9], may the Lord bless and keep guard over you.

Time, Timelessness and Jesus Christ
Enoch:  The Seventh from Adam
Never the Same
The coming synchronization of heaven’s and earth’s clocks

God is in THIS present moment

  1. Amen… That tense is reflected in many of the Greek words which are translated past tense should instead be ending in an ing for example…
    “Whoso eateth* my flesh, and drinketh* my blood,
    hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day”
    John 6:54

    is more accurately translated.. “Whoso is in the eating my flesh, and the drinking my blood,
    hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day”
    John 6:54

    *NOTE:
    “Simple Definition of the Participle:
    A participle is considered a “verbal adjective”. It is often a word that ends with an “-ing” in English (such as “speaking,” “having,” or “seeing”). It can be used as an adjective, in that it can modify a noun (or substitute as a noun), or it can be used as an adverb and further explain or define the action of a verb.
    For example:
    Adjectival use: “The coming One will come and will not delay.” Heb 10:37
    Adverbial use: “But speaking truth in love, we may grow up into Him in all things.” Eph 4:15

  2. Brian: Amen. We are abiding in Christ right here right now. Present tense, present tense, present tense. Thank you for your input.

  3. Many thanks for the link Tim
