What Time Is It?

Then the 24 elders, who were seated on thrones in God's presence, knelt down and worshiped him. They said,

“Lord God All-Powerful,

you are and you were,

and we thank you.

You used your great power

and started ruling.


When the nations got angry,

you became angry too!

Now the time has come

for the dead

to be judged.

It is time for you to reward

your servants the prophets

and all your people

who honor your name,

no matter who they are.

It is time to destroy everyone

who has destroyed

the earth.”

Revelation 11:16-18

"What time is it?" It is a simple question, but one with profound and eternal implications.

When you learn to tell time as a child you gain the ability to order your life in a way that is appropriate and profitable. A man who can "tell time" knows when to work, eat and sleep.

Even though there is no time in eternity, while we live on this earth time is very important. There will be a time for the "dead to be judged." There will be a time for God to "reward His servants the prophets and all His people who honor His name." And there will be a time to "destroy everyone who has destroyed the earth."

How do you tell what time it is on God's clock? How can you know what He will do and when He will do it? Knowing the timing of God's Events is not a game. We are not given puzzle pieces and a game board to try and put it all together. Knowing God's timing is the result of a relationship with Him. If you want to know what God will do and when He will do it, spend time with Him in His Word every day. Let the Bible speak specifically to your heart and listen for God's explanation of what you read. Then you will be ready every day for whatever God decides it is time to do.

"Lord Jesus, I know that today is on Your calendar. I know that You have plans for this day as You move in power to bring this world to be ready for Your return. Help me to be ready for Your timing in my life! Amen."
