Lost Crusader #223 Do You Have the Correct Time?

“That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

Philippians 2:10-11

I remember a song from my youth entitled, Does Anyone Really Know What Time It Is? I don’t know how philosophical Robert Lamm was trying to be. I think teachers of literature, poetry, and the like tend to read more into the writer’s intentions than is actually there. However, the song struck a chord with me.


Does anyone know the answer? I don’t think so, at least, not anyone living on earth. Someone might say, “God knows.” In a sense that’s true, but God doesn’t experience time as we do. Even though He took on human form, could His explanation of time be comprehended by the human mind? Again, I don’t think so.


Though we experience time, measure our lives by it, and order our days by it, I believe we are incapable of true understanding. We count a day and a night, a single rotation of the planet, as one day. Yet, on the first “day” of creation, there was evening and morning, to equal one day, before the sun and moon were created. That leads me to believe days, weeks, years, and so on, are more our attempt at reference points than a real concept of time and what time it is right now.


I do believe there is a time to every purpose under heaven. However, with one exception, it is not the same time nor the same purpose for everyone at the same moment or stage in life. This idea has serious implications when it is related to the verses that opened this blog.


There is a time when every knee shall bow, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. It is an act every creature will perform. We are not told what time our turn will come. In this case, above all others, it pays us to know what time it is. God has told us the proper time to make peace with Him.


“…I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold now, is the day of salvation.”


There is no moment but now. What time is it? It is now. All other moments are past and there is no promise of another.
