What Time Is It?

There are twenty-four different time zones on the earth. We each will have a different idea of what time it is based on the time zone we live in. We understand that is how we measure chronological time on the earth. Chronological time is not the only way we measure time though; there are many different units for measuring time. On one end of the spectrum  is Geologic time where we measure the age of the earth by eras and at the other end of the spectrum is Planck time, where we measure how long it takes for light to travel one Planck in a vacuum. 

Another completely different measurement of time is Prophetic Time. Prophetic Time is a Biblical measurement that measures the amount of time between when a particular prophecy is given and when that prophecy is fulfilled. For example, when Jesus came to earth the first time, His birth, life and death were a fulfillment of over one hundred Old Testament prophecies. Some of the prophecies had been written hundreds of years earlier, and yet, He uniquely fulfilled each one throughout his lifetime. The people living in those days literally saw prophecy fulfilled during their time on the earth.

Those of us living today might be living in another significant time of prophetic fulfillment.  There are dozens of prophecies that speak of the return of Christ to the earth, i.e. His Second Coming. Some of these prophecies were given over two millennia ago. The Bible speaks of a seven year period of time known as “The Tribulation” that takes place prior to His return. It also speaks of a “Time of Sorrows,” that proceeds those final seven years. This “Time of Sorrows” consists of earthquakes, famines, wars and rumors of wars, pestilences, death, inflation and false Christs.

So if someone were to ask me, “What time is it?” and they were referring to Biblical prophecy, I would answer them this way: From my vantage point, I believe we are pretty far down the road on the Prophetic Timeline. I would say that I believe we have entered into  the”Time of Sorrows.” Watching the earth deal with COVID19 on a world-wide scope has gotten my attention. Listening to the people from ID2020 explain how they want to give everyone living on the earth a digital implant has made me sit up and take notice.  Seeing governments put draconian measures on their populace has opened my eyes to how easy it is to fully control the world’s population.  These events show me how the next events on The Prophetic Timeline could soon come to pass. 

What do things look like from your vantage point? How would you answer if someone asked you where we were on the Prophetic Timeline?

  1. If someone were to ask me that question, I would say that only God knows. Every human being (from St. Paul to Harold Camping) who has predicted the timing (even approximately) of the Second Coming has been objectively wrong. Such matters do not attract much of my attention. My spiritual task is to go about the work God has assigned to me; I choose to focus on that, to the best of my ability.

  2. I do not worry about the time – it is not for me to know the time or hour of the Bridegrooms return. Instead I work to make sure I am right with God so that as I lay my head on the pillow I will be at peace should death come in the night…

  3. I agree with you Valerie and it causes me to be mindful of the importance of our relationship with God, family and friends. We really need to be mindful of what is just beginning to unfold. Not afraid, just mindful. Hold fast and follow the leading of God’s Holy Spirit to discern, do what is pleasing to God and rest in Him. Blessings.

  4. Anything is possible. I try not to think too far ahead. I feel sad for my children if their lives will consist of tribulation, rather than the beautiful childhood I had. I know that’s not a spiritual view, but it’s normal, I think. One day at a time is my motto. Jesus, walking beside me day by day is my hope.

  5. The Bible says we will know it is near by the signs so that none of us who are watching and waiting for his return should be surprised by his coming. We should see that what is happening in our day and time is fulfilling prophesy, but none of us knows how soon it will all come to fruition. But certainly the reality of how that mark of the beast could come into play is pretty clear now. Thanks, Valerie. Oh, and I love your new photo of yourself.

    • Yes, the things that are coming out for “answers” to the virus problem i.e. the vaccine with a digital component to it is startling…also we could see how the world could look for its savior! The soup is thinning and we can see clearer now than we could before! Thanks for offering your opinion!
