Some Hindrances to Receiving the New Covenant’s blessings of God’s forgiveness, is TIME. Because we live in the realm called TIME, we are stuck to the realm of time & space (as time = space). Our life is charted into a Time chart. God created time for us why? I believe some reason would be, so that we can organize our life, we can learn discipline, and learn from the past. So, God created us with time, is for our own good. We can see the past till to-date, but we cannot see our future. We could only see: from the day we were born to-this-moment in time, but we cannot see Future and beyond.
Problem: We see & live inside TIME, and so, we think: God also see the way we see, or in other word, we think “God is also living inside TIME.
Question: Can God see our Future? Yes.., and not only our future, but God also can see those unborn future generation of ours. Because God is not bound by time. God is outside the realm called time. If I were to create a clay-pot, I must not be the clay-pot itself, or I must not be inside the clay-pot. But, I must be outside the clay-pot, I must be the higher being called the Potter. I cannot be a Potter and a clay-pot at the same time. Logical? God is a higher being than us, He created us when He breathed His spirit into us when we were still in our mother’s womb (Gal 1:15).
So, if God is outside time, then the way He sees our life, should be different from the way we see! He sees ALL, the overall life from the moment we were born to the moment we die. He sees ALL.
1Pe 3:18 For Christ died for sins once and for ALL, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive by the Spirit,
Col 2:13 When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us ALL our sins,
When the bible says God forgave ALL our sins, Question: is it our ALL or God’s ALL? Is it talking about our Time or God’s Time? Who wrote the Bible? God! (About 40 selected bible authors who wrote under inspiration of Holy Spirit). We should read Bible always from God’s perspective, because He wrote the Bible, not us.
My Friend, God’s ALL is not your all….., God sees ALL means His ALL, not your all. Look at the Cross, it is beyond TIME: Who amongst us were born yet when Jesus was crucified on the Cross? None of us were born! And yet How come we can still apply Jesus’ blood for the forgiveness of sins? It is because the cross is beyond time and space. Because, if God is bound by TIME or inside TIME, then the cross could have only saved those who were alive when Jesus was crucified. BUT, the cross can apply to those who lived before the Cross, and, after the cross / to our unborn children / next generation. That is because God is beyond Time and Space.
So, today, rejoice my friends, that when God said, He forgave ALL your sins, He really means ALL, from the moment you were born till the moment you meet Jesus face to face, ALL means you are forgiven your past sins, present sins, and future sins. Hallelujah.
