Greetings to God the Father, Son and Spirit, the blessed, wonderful angels (hi angels) and to all the saints in Christ. I have not yet fully developed this truth but this was sparked on Martin Luther King’s Day when I heard his address which included a discussion on the differences in time across the international time zones. I think I remember him saying that if you travel from Tokyo and arrive in Seattle on a particular day, that it would be the same as leaving Tokyo on the day after your arrival.

The Spirit of the Lord then began to teach me about the differences in time zones between heaven and earth.

In fact, truth be told, there is no time zone in heaven.

God lives in infinity:

  • a place where there is no beginning or end
  • a place where no one gets old
  • a place where references are made to an existence before the foundation of the world
  • a place where there is “everlasting salvation” and “all ages”, “world without end” (Isa 45: 17, Eph 3: 21).

Tomorrow on earth is yesterday in heaven. An example is found in Revelation 12 in which John saw the events in which satan was cast out of heaven when it rebelled, when Jesus rose from the dead and in the end of times. This is why Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. Satan and its angels forever endure the humiliation of being kicked out of heaven. When will satan give up?

In heaven’s yesterday, the future events are foreseen on big screen television (the prophets see them as visions etc):

  • This is why Jesus went through much pains to fulfill the prophecies spoken of by the prophets because they were already done in heaven.
  • This is why Isaiah heard God say that He declares:

 “the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure” (Isa 46:10).

Is God the big manipulator upstairs? No He is not. For a brief minute the devil wanted me to believe that, until the servant of the Lord reminded me that man was created with free will to choose destiny, like Adam and Eve. God, being all wise, does not operate in crisis management, or we would be all undone. He has a counter plan for every one of His plans that the enemy or man foils. That is why He put in place structures and strategies to deal with every issue “before the foundation of the earth”. He is never surprised or shocked by events because He foreknows it all.

What a God!!! God wants us to read and understand the word with new eyes. For example, 7 means sabbath, day of rest. As I listened to Dr. King, He showed me that 2007 was the day of rest, while 2006 was the day of man. We need to go back to the creation to fully understand this. Furthermore, “a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night” (Ps 90:4).

Peter also clarified this prophecy when he said in 2 Pe 3:8:

“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”.

My head is spinning.

Our two thousand and seven paltry years are just like 2 days to God!

He looks at us on earth through the eyes of His current time while we are looking up to heaven trying to figure out why we have to wait so long for a “now” word to be manifested. Hear this one! If 1000 years are like one day to the Lord, how old are you in eternity. The Lord often calls me a teenager and some of us think we are old when we get to 40! Methuselah and those brethren were closer to eternity than we were and that explains why they lived so long. What do I mean? As the world got older and man grew further away from God, the divide between the heavens and the earth widened. I will give more detail later!
