Law of Time

“As the rain and the snow come down from Heaven, and do not return to it without watering the Earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is My word that goes out of My mouth: It will not return to Me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.”

In Isaiah 55.10-11 is recorded the Law of Time. This is the truth about time from the Lord’s perspective. He uses it as a tool or a means to see that the words which carry His will are fulfilled so that His purpose and desire are accomplished. He has allowed the passage of time to be the testament of His will. And in this, God’s mercy, grace, justice, righteousness, wisdom and His love are revealed.

Time is precious to God because His word – an expression of that which They have agreed and planned and intended for Each Other – is precious.

Men think that “life is short” and so we see time as precious. But God sees time as precious, both valuable and useful, because He uses it like a fertiliser, causing the goodness of His word to come to fruition. He is God who is Love, who is patient and He is kind, not wanting anyone to perish, but to come to repentance.

This is why we should never rush the Lord, for He would never rush you. To rush someone is rudeness. To rush God is to like rushing a gardener to swing his sickle for harvest before the right time and diminish what would otherwise have been a great return.

Rather, it is more important to gain understanding of the plans and intentions and timing the Father and the Holy Spirit have to glorify Jesus, and for Each Other. And this brings it back to listening to Jesus and to the Holy Spirit. It always leads us back to the Gospel where Jesus’ words are recorded for us to hear carefully, to practise and to prove true for our own testimony.

To understand time in the Lord’s eyes means to know Their word, to know Their will and to know Their heart, and to understand Them. It also means to know the time in which we live in and which of Jesus’ words must be fulfilled for Him to return to reign.

The Law of Time is, in truth, an encouragement to come to know the Father, the Lord and Jesus more and more each day. To use the time given to each of us to come to know Them so as to understand how to bring about the proper time for the fulfilment of God’s words from the beginning to the end.

In the Law of Time, God’s wisdom in creating this world is evident; Their purposefulness and delight in creation is evident; and mostly, Their determination and resolve and righteousness are evident because They are Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace – mighty and true.

Come King Jesus come.
