How did people in the Bible deal with timing of events? This session focuses on how God schedules time with His people.
- The seventh day shall be a day of rest (Genesis 2:2)
- A standard unit of time? "Tomorrow, at this time...."
A hailstorm will fall (Ex 9:18),
I will send a man (1 Sam 9:16),
You will be rescued (1 Sam 11:9),
May the gods strike me dead (1 Kings 19:2),
The officers will search (1 Kings 20:6),
10 lbs of wheat for 1 pc. of silver (2 Kings 7:1 and 7:18)
- Time stands still (Joshua 10: 9-15)
- A time for everything (Ecclesiastes 3)
- My time has not yet come. (John 2:4)
- Fever leaves at 1:00 (John 4:46)
- No one knows the day or the hour. (Matthew 24:36, Mark 13:32, Luke 21:36)
- Peter's denial timed by a rooster:
- "With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day." (2 Peter 3:8) To God's perspective, are we just specks of life, gone in an instant?
- "Only one life, 'twill soon be past,
Only what's done for Christ will last." is a familiar line, from a longer poem by C. T. Studd. Read the entire poem for his perspective on the value of using our time for Christ.
