The words of
the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem.
Vanity of vanities, saith the Preacher, vanity of vanities; all is vanity.
What profit hath a man of all his labour which he taketh under the sun?
One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth
abideth for ever.
The sun also ariseth, and the sun goeth down, and hasteth to his place where he
The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north; it whirleth
about continually, and the wind returneth again according to his circuits.
All the rivers run into the sea; yet the sea is not full; unto the place from
whence the rivers come, thither they return again.
All things are full of labour; man cannot utter it: the eye is not satisfied
with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing.
The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is
that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
Ecclesiates 1:1 - 9
The words you are now reading were in the future before
you began and by the time you get to the end of this sentence the concepts that
pass through your mind will be the past a millisecond after you read this last
word. The only rational thing we can say about the nature of time is that it
passes and is only temporary, however even this is subject to scrutiny. Add to
this is the phenomenon of "deja vu", a strange feeling that time is repeating
itself, and prophecy, which if correct, is a vision of future time. In times of
great stress "your entire life", in full detail, can literally pass before your
eyes. The normal movement through life sometimes produces the experience of
being lost in thought, which makes the real world dissolve. And what is memory
but a mental recall of time past?
Distortion In an overview of UFO sightings, documentaries, and
movies, most especially those dealing with close encounters, and abductions,
there is one element almost always present, time distortion. Watches stop,
reverse, or spin wildly ahead, and hours of experience happen in only minutes,
or even split seconds. And the opposite also occurs with days, months, and even
years of human time lost in the blink of an eye, as though time had stopped in
the mind, but seemed to rush by in what we call the "real world". Is there some
ethereal black hole that swallows up time or some unnatural force that lengthens
and stretches it out? Do UFOs project an energy field of some kind that causes
this or something in their very presence that alters time? Or is there another
explanation? Some links to UFOs and time:
Freedom from Time If the bright clouds, lofty thrones, great glowing
whirlwinds and the aerial chariots of fire in the Bible qualify as UFOs the
beings that piloted them certainly had an unorthodox view of time as well.
There are two verses that bear this out the first one being an Old Testament
concept: Psalms 90:4 For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday
when it is past, and as a watch in the night. From this verse we can determine that human time
passes very quickly for these eternal beings. From the last phrase we can also
determine that a thousand years actually is not a finite number. During Old
Testament times the "night" was divided into three watches from sunset to
sunrise, thus making one watch an approximate 4-hour period. Although this
begins to shed light on the possibility that time is in truth without relevance
to the Gods it definitely debunks the often-specific 1 to 365,000 ratio often
used in certain numerical equations related to prophecy theories. Another verse
sheds further on what appears to be the timeless nature of these superior
beings: 2 Peter 3:8 But,
beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a
thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. Here we can either find confusion or enlightenment.
We again find reference to time passing very quickly for these beings, but it
seems to be contradicted by the phrase, which states that human time also passes
very slowly for God. How can this be possible unless these beings, due to their
eternal nature, do not dwell in a state in which time is a factor? This could
mean that they are either free to roam through time or that time is purely a
human concept? The incredible accuracy of biblical prophecy and predictions of
the human condition we see in this modern age leaves but one conclusion. One,
or both, of these concepts is true.
Presence Suspend Time?
Deuteronomy 8:4 Thy
raiment waxed not old upon thee, neither did thy foot swell, these forty years.
Deuteronomy 29:5 And
I have led you forty years in the wilderness: your clothes are not waxen old
upon you, and thy shoe is not waxen old upon thy foot. These are the the recorded ages of those who lived
before the Flood: Adam 930, Seth 912, Eno 905, Cainan 910, Mahalaleel 895, Jared
962, Enoch 365, Methuselah 969, Lamech 777, and Noah 960. The average age of
these men, without Enoch as he was taken up, is 913 years. Immediately after
the flood the ages of humans drop dramatically. Before he flooded the Earth God
told Noah this: "And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man,
for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years."
An Invisible Reality The Bible very clearly testifies to existence of a
very real but very invisible world. Perhaps one of the statements most relevant
to the human condition is ridiculed by society and ignored by the church. 2 Corinthians 4:18 While we look not at the things
which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are
seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. The word temporal is
taken form proskairos, pronounced pros'-kahee-ros; for the occasion only, i.e.
temporary.Paul is literally
saying that nothing we see has any permanence.
An Entire Fleet is Cloaked
2 Kings 6:17 And Elisha prayed, and said, Lord, I pray
thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the Lord opened the eyes of the young
man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of
fire round about Elisha.
Invisibility An angel is hidden from plain view. Numbers 22:31 Then the Lord opened the eyes of Balaam,
and he saw the angel of the Lord standing in the way, and his sword drawn in his
hand: and he bowed down his head, and fell flat on his face.
The Invisible World A person would have to lead a very sheltered life, or
in a total state of denial to deny the evidence of invisible but very real
forces on our planet. Sounds without physical sources, apparitions that appear
and then fade to nothing, and objects moving without a visible force to cause it
are but the most obvious clues to an invisible world coexisting with the
physical reality. Telepathy, voice projection, extrasensory perception, auras,
clairaudience, spontaneous human combustion, telekinesis, and out of body
experiences add to the evidence of invisible forces. If one thinks of the
normal life experience, without regard to the obvious "paranormal" events, many
more invisible forces come to mind. Those instances when a loved one completes
sentences for you regularly, the intuition you that kept you from stepping into
the path of a speeding car, the deja vu experiences that you are certain are
real, hearing your phone ring and knowing not only the party on the line, but
the nature of the call before you answer it are but a few. Many other strange
events common to the human experience all fit into a paradigm we know exists but
can't detect with the physical senses.
The Concept Logic would dictate
that time to the Elohiym, and time to humans is much different. To state that
time seems to be a characteristic restricted to the physical, what we call the
"real" world, and holds little relevance to the Gods. The statement by Paul in
his second letter to the church at Corinth, "the things which are seen are
temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal" holds a reality, which
if understood, gives a whole new meaning to "our" world. What we consider
reality is but a passing image; God and the eternal beings of the Bible live in
the real, "real world”, not humans.
