Understanding 2 Peter 3:8
Share this page!

Probably one of the most confusing verses in the Bible is 2 Peter 3:8 which says:

2 Peter 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

This is a comparison between the difference in time passage between where we are and where Heaven is. Being with the Lord is being in Heaven. Many Christians believe that God is outside of time so therefore Heaven is also outside of time. This idea is usually used when a Christian does not understand how eternity works, or how God created things. But does the Bible support that God and Heaven are outside of actual time?

Revelation 8:1 And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.

You cannot measure time where time does not exist. So 2 Peter 3:8 is a comparison of the time difference between Heaven and where we are at. So to make it more understandable we need to change the equation from comparing days to years to comparing years to years. And since a year contains 365 days we will times both numbers by 365. So what we get is 1 year compared to 365,000 years. What this means is that when 1 year passes on earth 365,000 years passes in Heaven. What that also means is that Heaven is 365,000 times faster than we are.

What questions does this answer?

  1. How God can be everywhere at once.
  2. How angels can be there so quickly to protect us from harm.
  3. How God can create in 6-24 hour days. It’s because God can do 1000 years of work in one 24 hour day because of the time difference between Heaven and earth.
  4. Explains how when we have a near death experience (NDE) that everything seems to go in slow motion. Our bodies prepare for possible death and separation of the soul. This gives us a glimpse into the eternal dimension where time is faster. And as we look into this dimension of faster time, the time where we were in becomes slower in our perception of it. This is why everything looks like it’s going in slow motion.

 

The Bible is called the living word because no matter how many times you read it you find something new to understand. And the more we understand opens our minds and hearts to know that there is a God and there is none like Him.

To the right (on desk computers) there are 3 videos to watch if you want to understand this better from a scientific viewpoint.

1) Time is not constant. Shows how time is fluid aka in flux not constant.
2) Time Dilation in laymen terms. Explains the 1st video in laymen terms by a retired aerospace engineer.
3) Math of the universe. Shows how the whole universe is like one big math equation.

Because other devices like phones and tablets load the page differently. You may have to scroll down a bit to find these videos.

Laws of Physics, where did they come from?
Share this page!

Laws list:

Newton's Three Laws of Motion.

Law of Gravity.

Conservation of Mass-Energy.

Conservation of Momentum.

Laws of Thermodynamics.

Electrostatic Laws.

Invariance of the Speed of Light.

Modern Physics & Physical Laws.

Etc…

The questions are:

  1. What is their origin?
  2. Can laws come about naturally?
  3. How did they come about fully balanced to create order instead of chaos?

If we take what we already know about how laws came about in our justice system, then we know that only intelligence can bring a law into being, establish it, and some how enforce it. If you look at the laws as a formula of sorts because each law is balanced to work together. Then you also know that formulas can only be worked out by intelligence. If you look at the laws as something that cannot be broken by man, then you would also have to realize that the laws were set by something more powerful and more intelligent than man. More powerful because man can do nothing to change or bend them.

And the conclusion is that naturalism in no way can fit into achieving making any law that exists come into being. The laws themselves defy a natural existence and science itself has not even one clue on how to explain them coming into being naturally. So when you use deductive reasoning, cancelling out all that does not fit or will not work, there is only one conclusion left that fits the bill of why the laws exist, and why they work together to make order instead of chaos.

Deny it as naturalist may, their way if thinking cannot explain away a Creator creating the laws that exist and the fact that they create order instead of chaos. That they are put together and tweaked to be in balance like a formula making everything work together to create all that we see. Always ignoring that even one notch off in how one law works with another that total and complete chaos would be the result. And that they cannot even contemplate the first step in an explanation that would fit their world views.

  • Applying the scientific method:

When all conclusions fit and point into one direction only, what is science supposed to do? According to the scientific method you are supposed to follow the evidence regardless of where it leads, not ignore it because it leads to where you don;t want to go. But science refusal to follow the conclusions of the only things that make sense here is proof that science is not really about finding truth where ever it may lead, but making everything that exists or is discovered conform to what they have already accepted as truth.

Proof? Evolutionists have already exalted their idea of their theory as being a true proven facts with mountains of empirical evidence. They even went as far as to exalt this theory of theirs to being a Scientific theory. The problem here is that there is really no criteria that the theory had to meet to graduate to this level. Nothing. They cannot give us a 1 ,2 ,3 criteria on what the theory had to do to reach this status or the supposed evidence that took it over the top, and how it would maintain this status. How does one know that evolution still meets the criteria of being a scientific theory when evidence for and against are found all the time? And evidence gets proven wrong or found to be fraud but some how the theory of evolution holds to a criteria that is not even clear or written?

  • Is evolution the hero of the atheist movement?

This is what happens when a person becomes a hero unto the people. They exalt him to a status that he may not be worthy of, and make positive claims about him that are not even true just so they can look up to him as their hero. And they will protect their hero and anyone whom disagrees becomes their enemy. This is what has happened to the theory of evolution. It has become the atheist hero in the plot to justify their disbelief in God. And because the idea is their hero it will be treated as such and becomes something the atheist can look up to whether it meets the criteria or not. And it is protected against all whom would dare to disagree, and those whom disagree become the enemy for that very reason. Why do you think atheists who believe in evolution hate all creationists when they have never met them? The hero complex of evolution requires them to do just that.

Current CRS-sponsored Research Projects, Part 3

Dr Gene Chaffin, vice-president of the Creation Research Society listed several of the current research projects that have been awarded grants from the Creation Research Society. He states, “Each grant is awarded based on review and vote by the members of the research committee. We are grateful to the donors who have made these grants possible.”

Statistical Study of Surficial Gravel Deposits

Gravel is one of the most important building materials in modern society, being the chief ingredient in concrete and the standard for structural fill to support buildings, roads, and structures. While the relative ability of a stream or creek to transport fine sediments such as clay and silt is well known, coarse sediments require significant stream power. Laboratory research has centered on sand, and empirical equations have been developed to relate grain size distribution to current speed and stream power.

Gravel is too large to be easily investigated in the laboratory, so most of the research for gravel has been based on observed flood events. Since moving gravel requires greater stream power or current strength, than sand and fines, it has been of special relevance to debates of catastrophic versus uniformitarian depositional interpretations.

The research involves entry of large numbers of existing data from a sizeable area to research patterns that may indicate the directions and relative strengths of the currents that formed the deposits, effectively testing the predictions of uniformitarian versus catastrophic models of earth history.

This is VERY disappointing. The gettys are in direct opposition to what you (AIG) are working for. They (the gettys) are strongly working toward the one-world church of anti-christ!!!!!!!!! PLEASE rethink bringing them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Too late for us being there. Shoot.

Are they charging an admission price to hear them speak ?

If you don't know who they are, you'll probably recognize the hymn they wrote which wasn't from the 1800s at all, but the 2000s youtu.be/YBNFNfH89SA

Thank you for doing this. It is helping me and my children. For years I ask questions but no one in the church could give me a good answers. The Holy Spirit open my eyes and the Bible has all the answers.

Hello from Oklahoma, God bless.

This is infuriating. This beautiful girl is a gift from God and how dare they treat her as an inconvenience!

I would take her and raise her in a heartbeat, and she would be SO loved!

Thankful it will be in Canada!

Might be good to offer the child for adoption

If you enjoy good content like this and others, support them. The secular world is trying to silence any and all voices that don't support their worldview, as clearly seen in the news recently, including Pintrest labeling pro-life groups as pornography.

Being an older Mom, I had those tests for a different reason: to be prepared. My son is autistic and I wouldn't abort him if I knew ahead.

Ugh. I just found a Facebook group called Answers to Answers in Genesis. Basically, the sole purpose of the group is to debunk everything Answers in Genesis teaches and undermine the authority of God's Word. The terrible part is it is a so called Christian group!

My father would probably have been aborted, had he been conceived today. Yet he led a fulfilling life for over 80 years....

That poor girl. How is she going to feel, not being wanted? :'( I hope she gets adopted by someone who wants her. :'(

My daughter has 4 multiple needs diagnoses, and I wouldn't trade her for 10 "perfect" daughters!

This one grieves me. She is so beautiful and has such life!

That poor child. Such cruel parents.

Hello from IDAHO!!!

Hello from Oklahoma!

Amen 🙏🏿

I seen a statement that said, Liberals will murder their children but save puppies because it's cruel to kill them.

the pro choice crowd sounds quite a bit like the bunch that gave us Eugenics.

Teen Vogue is either ignorant or supports slavery. A lot of women in prostitution are forced into due to sex slavery. It is s horrible issue and isn’t work. Sex slavery is a huge problem and teen vogue supports making it worse.

Jesus, we long for your return.

Isaiah 5:20 Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!

And the poor lady with the sign doesn't exactly look happy. Poor girl. Would love to talk to her.

Keep exposing the works of satan, brothers and sisters in Christ. We are near the end.

Nooo, y'all nooo! So, does that make us married guys volunteers? Sex is intended to be free, but only within the confines of marriages. Anything else is pure theft!

Very sad 😞

This is what the world thinks is appropriate.

Teen vogue has also run articles on sodomy and multiple articles promoting communism.

Depravity of man.

This is so evil .

Can the world just get any more ridiculous 🤦🏻‍♀️😡‼️

Prostitution is slavery

Zelka

🤦‍♂️

How awful!

😡😡😡

So, why should the folks at "teen vogue" have any peace when the go out in nyc? If anyone knows who the jokers are who write this bird cage liner, and sees them in a restaurant, go up to their table and tell them, with emphasis and compassion, that Jesus saves! "teen vogue" is a conde nast publication...boo...

Eat 3x a day!!!

And when you get to the many immoral things attributed to God, how do you justify it? Slavery and human sacrifice and genocide. What horrible things

Amen! Everyday

But there are so many other Facebook posts to read!

Yes reading through everyday Year after year! So agree!

Ray’s unique selling point. But not necessarily true. The most fruitful Christians in the earlier centuries of the church didn’t have access to scripture, yet were fruitful and had power of the Holy Spirit, not just words.

Is there a time to focus on? 10 minutes? 15? 45? Or something you grow into?

Jesus is God's word not the bible.

It's allright if you read the bible every day, as long as you also read about sience too. Geology and astronomy for example.

Start off by reading a chapter a day. Surely that can be accomplished.

Truth.

Wow. That is discipline. Kudos, Ray!

And something that I had forgotten...before you do anything, talk to the One who loves you most. Thank Him that He let you wake up. Bring Him your troubles and leave them there. Ask for His protection and strength to overcome temptation (I too often fail here). After you’ve given Him your family, your leaders, your Pastors and your friends, ask Him to prepare your heart and mind as you read His word. Love ya, Ray. Hope you’re feeling better, and I really wish you’d hang out long enough one Sunday so I could say “Hi” before we’re off to AZ.

Very true. I’m not only reading each day, I’ve started memorizing books of the Bible. 2 Timothy, Colossians, Philippians, Ephesians, and today I am starting the longest endeavor yet. The book of John. It’s very hard to share the truth of God’s word, if you aren’t spending time reading and meditating on it yourself.

You don’t have all of God’s Word. You are missing seven books and parts of Daniel and Esther.

Amen 💜🕂😊

Ask God what book to read, then read a few chapters a day. Not one, as man put in the chapter breaks to make it easier to find bits. You need to read in larger chunks to get context.

I'm on 27 years at the moment.

You know what's been helping me? The One Year Bible Online Page. They have a facebook page and website. I've been doing it since Jan 1st. It's to read the bible in a year. I've never read the whole thing and it helps me to stick with the daily reading, which actually gets me to read more of it beyond the daily reading they have set each day. They also have an audio version with commentary to help you understand more. They post study questions to help you think about what you're reading as well. You don't need to start on Jan. 1st. Definitely check it out if you have trouble getting into the word. <3

Amen!

Fruit of Psalm-one✝️ love that Brother COMPLETELY AGREE

Is there any way I could interview you for my YouTube channel?

It's absolutely about faith and belief and so many bibles read different and I think a lot is lost in the written word, thus the reason for the scholars popes priest and nuns to translate hopfuly the correct version of the word of God !!

Amen!!

46 years?? Yet you are still blind as a bat preaching a works based Gospel and failing to rightly divide the word of God. Romans 1:22 (KJV) 22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 2 Timothy 2:15 (KJV) 15 STUDY to shew thyself approved UNTO God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, RIGHTLY DIVIDING the word of truth. Romans 2:16 (KJV) 16 In the day when God shall JUDGE the secrets of men by Jesus Christ according to MY gospel. -PAUL

Awww Happy Birthday Archie ! My granddaughters loved riding and petting you last year.

awwww, happy birthday, archie! hope your "cake" was good! 🙂

Awe ❤️. Happy Birthday Archie! 🎉🎂🎈🎁🕯️

Aww Happy Birthday Archie.

Yogi Bear would be jealous 🙂

Our recent visit to the Ark was wonderful however I was very concerned about the animals, the lack of shaded areas, water , greenery and very small enclosures. I really expected better from the makers of Creation Museum and The Ark Encounter. Hopefully this will get better.

Happy birthday archie

I think this was your camel Jerry-Debbie Hauser Peggy Vale Archie Happy Birthday 🎂

Terrific!!!!

I got to ride you last year it was one of the best days of my life

Lacey Sams. We need to go see Archie!

Say what? Now the alphabet is being blamed for things?

Comment on Facebook

I googled to see the writing and it literally makes no sense!! At least be a real poet for crying out loud. So easy to choose a pretty font these days, call yourself a trans and people take you seriously.

HIS alphabet starts like this IHAVEABROKENMINDANDNEEDGODSLOVEBUTINEVERLEARNEDFROMMYPARENTSHIWTOCOPEWITHLIFEBYGIVINGITTOGOD.

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” ‭‭II Timothy‬ ‭1:7‬ ‭

I have my suspicions about numbers too. They can't really be counted on.

When they say "Trans-poet" does that mean (he/she/it/them) was not born a poet but is transitioning into one? hmmm

No matter what they do .. nothing will ever justify nor approve of what they are trying to do....not even the alphabet will agree with them.....! What a sad generation... Come Lord Jesus, come! Come soon please!!!

Is that a man or a woman?

Everyday I think I have heard it all, but then the next day comes and starts the process all over again.

🙄🙄🙄🙄 insanity at its saddest 😫😫😫

Normal people just like us.

It's getting harder to even keep track of all the lunacy going on.

When you hate yourself, you hate everything around you.

We’re all going crazy! It’s all of our fault for letting things get so out of hand!!!

What am I missing here?

Looney tunes

Needs help for that is insanity!

Yeah...that bigoted alphabet. Gotta watch out for that. It's probably narrow-minded too. Let's just let whichever letters want to be vowels be called vowels from now on. Also, let's pronounce them however we want to. Thay way nobody gets offended.

Can't deal with the insanity anymore

just come up with your own alphabet already...

Leave the Alphabet alone! Youve got everything you want and youre still not satisfied!

Sin can't be satisfied!!!

🤦🏻‍♂️

Sickening..🤦‍♀️

Im confused
