Perspective!

I'm not sure who originally figured this out, but it reminded me of today's text about God's love and patience when it comes to humans, (since we naturally have this tendency to think in such *small* terms) But it's pretty interesting when you look at time from God's perspective...

2 Peter 3:8, 9 says:
"However, let this one fact not be escaping YOUR notice, beloved ones, that one day is with Jehovah as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day. Jehovah is not slow respecting his promise, as some people consider slowness, but he is patient with YOU because he does not desire any to be destroyed but desires all to attain to repentance."


If 1 Day to Jehovah is 1,000 Years to Us...
6 Days Ago...
Adam and Eve appeared on the scene and sinned…
and Jehovah made immediate plans to fix the situation.

39 hours and 45 minutes later...
Jehovah prevented the demons from returning to their
original position and the flood took place,
cleansing the earth… fresh start for humans.

10 hours later...
The covenant was made with Abraham promising the
ransom...The next day the law covenant outlined the details
of the ransom and plans were made for the ransom to be paid.

One day, one hour and 48 minutes later...
The Ransom was paid.

Two hours and 15 minutes ago...
Jesus was enthroned, and cleansed the heavens
and finalized the Kingdom arrangement…

So, it will all be over in just a few minutes!!!
Earth restored to Paradise!!!
