Jack’s Winning Words 9/19/16
“Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.” (Lao Tzu) A Winning Words friend of mine is a geologist who has explored the beginnings of humankind in Africa. She and her team discovered a fossil of our genus Homo, dating back to 2.8 million years ago. Time is man’s invention, not God’s. “Thy will be done” is a comforting petition, because it is without the constraints of the calendar. The ultimate will of God is always accomplished. ;-) Jack
FROM TARMART REV: It will certainly be an ultimate and most revealing day of truth when the scales are taken off our eyes and the whole creative and purposeful picture is laid out before us by our Creator?! "Eye hath not seen nor ear heard..."====JACK: Even the blind will "see"...understand.
FROM HONEST JOHN: Augustine sad that time is a creation of God====JACK: I suppose you could say that God is "timeless," because there is no beginning and no end with him. Following that line, he created "time" when he created the earth, because there was a "time" when the earth did not exist. On;y God is "timeless," so there will be an end of "time" for the earth...eventually.
FROM BLAZING OAKS: The Oct.2015 Nat'l. Geographic magazine tells of a discovery of an "almost human" cache of bones in a cave (Rising Star) near Johannesburg that are believed to be 2 million yrs. old. It's hard to wrap your mind around homo genus ancestors living that long ago!! We think in terms of 100's of years; The concept of timelessness is just difficult for us who measure minutes, and hours and years! Yet we are told eternity has no time measurement. Amazing to ponder!!====JACK: Limitless outer space is another imponderable.
