Understanding 2 Peter 3:8

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.

The Information Packed into a Bird Egg, Part 4

The following Speaking of Science article by David Coppedge appeared in Creation Matters, Vol. 23, No. 5, May/June 2018.

There’s more in a bird’s egg than can be accounted for by the Reverse Humpty-Dumpty Hypothesis (i.e., Darwinism). 

New Bird of Paradise Species Has Smooth Dance Moves. 

Take a look at the photo in this National Geographic article.[7] Would you think it’s a space alien? This jet-black bird of paradise from West Papua New Guinea, with two bright blue eyes and open beak, sporting a glistening aqua neck pouch, is doing its mating dance. Whether it is really a new species or just a variety is a debate for taxonomists, but the embedded video will likely impress anyone.

Bethel Leaders Pray for the “Mantle” of Known Heretic ... William Branham

Tune in for EPISODE 3 in a 4-part series looking at Bethel Church based out of Redding, California.

In Part 3 of our series on Bethel Church we examine Bethel’s practice of what they call Sozo Prayer. This unbiblical practice has people looking into the “breadcrumbs” of their past, even leading some to think that in order to move forward in life that they need to forgive God! What is this practice all about and is this being guided by the Holy Spirit?

Pastor Joe Schimmel and host Chad Davidson continue to discuss the issues with Bethel Church and call attention to those things which need to be marked out and rebuked.

Below are the titles of each video in the series and their Premiere date:

Friday, June 26
Examining Bill Johnson's Bethel Church

Friday, July 3
The Bethel & Friends Contagion

Friday, July 10
Bethel's Sozo Obsession

Friday, July 17
Hogwarts School of Supernatural Ministry & Witches at Bethel?

Happy 8th birthday to Munch the African spurred tortoise! 

At 80 poulds, he’s still got a lot of growing to do. He can live to be 80–100 years old and grow up to 250 pounds! African spurred tortoises like him are the third largest species of tortoise in the world, only surpassed by the Galapagos and Aldabra tortoises. 

Munch came from the nearby Kenton County Library, where he spent his early years participating in reading programs for children. Since he outgrew the library’s capabilities for housing him, the Ararat Ridge Zoo is now his forever home! ❤️

FaceBook filters this page so, that when they present an ad to try and get me to pay to promote the page. The ad itself is filtered. So they are asking me to boost: Content is not available type post. So Im like: Why would I pay to boost content is not available at this time post? What would I get out of telling people my content is not available because FB is filtering it?

But it is funny that they actually think that i would pay for it.

Happy 9th birthday to Manasseh the miniature LaMancha goat! 🎉

Manasseh is a rescue and was in really rough shape when she was adopted by the Ararat Ridge Zoo. She was incredibly thin and and her hooves were extremely overgrown. With lots of love and veterinary care, Manasseh was successfully rehabilitated and has become a staff favorite because of her sweet personality. 

She is also the mother of our quadruplets: Shadrach, Meshach, Abednego, and Danielle. Come see Manasseh and her kids in the petting area during your next visit to the Ark Encounter!

The Information Packed into a Bird Egg, Part 3

The following Speaking of Science article by David Coppedge appeared in Creation Matters, Vol. 23, No. 5, May/June 2018.

There’s more in a bird’s egg than can be accounted for by the Reverse Humpty-Dumpty Hypothesis (i.e., Darwinism). 

How birds can detect Earth’s magnetic field. 

Inside that egg was the potential to build navigation equipment that can use input from the magnetosphere. Scientists have been searching for years for the location of that sense. Researchers at Lund University believe they have found it in Cry4, a member of a group of proteins called cryptochromes (‘hidden colors’).[6] 

“The receptors that sense the Earth’s magnetic field are probably located in the birds’ eyes. Now, researchers at Lund University have studied different proteins in the eyes of zebra finches and discovered that one of them differs from the others: only the Cry4 protein maintains a constant level throughout the day and in different lighting conditions. 

Other cryptochromes vary according to the biological clock, but Cry4 does not. Although work remains to be done to see how Cry4 reads magnetic information and responds to it, this is another clue to a long-standing puzzle. The team believes that all animals may have this ability. Do humans? Whatever is determined, there is another potential use for it: “this knowledge may be of use when developing new navigation systems.”
