Rich or poor, we all have the same amount of time to serve the Lord.

Joh 13 = the Last Supper took place as His Bride waits for Him to come back and take His Bride back to Heaven to celebrate our Honeymoon with Him and get ready for the marriage of the Lamb to begin.

Every individual stands before our Lord with the gown of the perfect righteousness of our Lord as well as with the blessings and the crowns that believers have that they will cast at the feet of our Lord Jesus Christ.

All of us ought to protect and honor His place of privilege when we stand before the Lord and reveal our respect and being in awe of Him.

Don’t insult Him by not showing respect for His Name and His title, or in His case “TITLES” and “VICTORIES.”

Notice this fantastic marvelous statement = for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His bride has made herself ready.”

LUK 12:40  “You too, be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour that you do not expect.”

 

  1. “The marriage of the Lamb has come.”
  2. “His bride has made herself ready.”

It is the glory of the bride to clothe herself in fine linen, bright and clean; for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.

“experiential sanctification”  = you have sanctified or set apart some specific time when you can concentrate on your calling.

If you do not have any time at all to do what I just said, then I would strongly recommend that you change your schedule.

If you do not have Diving Timing, Satan and his kingdom of darkness is going to either ignore you because you are no threat to him or because he wants to destroy our unity, love, virtue and our spiritual achievements.

Ecc 3 is a passage that teaches that everything in life is a matter of timing.

We are not given years to live or months to live but according to the Bible, we are given days to live.

PSA 90:12  “Teach us to number our days, That we may present to Thee a heart of wisdom.”

PSA 31:15, David said, “My times are in Thy hand.”

In Ecc 3:1-8, while you will probably experience most of these things and blessings you will not enjoy these things without doctrine which gives you capacity to enjoy life to its utmost.

We all have the same amount whether we are absolutely without a dime or whether we happen to be the richest person on earth!

An anonymous donor who loves you very much has decided each morning for the rest of your life to deposit in your bank account, 86,400 pennies each morning = $864.00.

One stipulation = “You must spend all the money that day.”

864.00 a day times 7 = $6,048.00 a week!

Times 52 = $ 314,496.00 for the year.

Every morning someone who loves you very much deposits into your bank of time, 86,400 seconds which represents 1440 minutes which  equals 24 hours.

EPH 5:16  making the most of your time, because the days are evil.

God gives you and me a certain amount of time that you and I might use it properly for His glory.

ISA 43:7  “Everyone who is called by My name, I have created for My glory, Those whom I have formed, even whom I have made.”

REV 4:11 “Worthy art Thou, our Lord and our God, to receive glory and honor and power; for Thou didst create all things, and because of Thy will they existed, and were created.”

God has created you for His glory and until you believe that and then live for that purpose, you will never find true happiness and contentment in life.

Every day we live is a gracious gift from God and it should be a day that we have time set aside for our relationship with Him which is special and intimate.

The only time we possess to honor God in this life is the number of days He provides for us in the Christian life, Psa 90:12; JAM 4:13‑15.

JAM 4:13   Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow, we shall go to such and such a city, and spend a year there and engage in business and make a profit.”

JOB 23:12 “I have not departed from the command of His lips; I have treasured the words of His mouth more than my necessary food.”

“treasured” is the verb tsaphan which means to esteem; to admire, appreciate, respect, and even worship.

Psa 56:4  In God, whose word I praise, in God I have put my trust;

Psa 56:10  In God, whose word I praise, in the Lord, Whose Word I praise,

Days of life are lost through divine discipline, Psa 102:23  “In the course of my life, He broke my strength, He cut short my days.”

Eph 5:16‑17  “Constantly buying time, because the days are evil. [you purchase time with doctrine] Because of this, stop being ignorant, but completely understand the will [purpose] of the Lord.”

How you and I can buy back the time that we lost and hopefully we conclude that “The great use for one’s life is to spend it for something that will outlast it!”

This verse doesn’t say that there is a time to be conceived and a time to die! It says, a time to give birth because time begins at birth not in the womb.

Question 1 == When does life begin?

Question 2 == What type of life are we talking about, biological life or soul life?

Question 3 == What is the difference between biological life and soul life.

Question 4 == When does the fetus become a member of the human race?

Question 5 == Is having an abortion murder or sin or both?

God gave you life at that moment, so that was the right time for you to be born.

You had nothing to say about your birth and that’s why your timing was perfect!

God created soul life and imputed that soul life to the fetus in the woman’s womb on the day you were born — your birthday!

Don’t say you were born too late or too early or you would have been better off if you lived during another generation.

If we complain about anything related to our birth or our environment, or our parents, or our home, we are blaspheming God.

Anyone who resents his parents or his early environment, no matter how bad or how good it was, is totally out of sync with life.

Every time you use your environment as an excuse for your bad habits or your bad decisions, you are so far out of line that you are disoriented to life.

A female becomes a Flaky Fluffy Female minus normal thinking and controlled by the emotional complex of sins.

Just like we had no control over our birth, we also have no control over our death.

When we are born and when we die is a matter of the sovereignty of God or God’s judgment.

Only our perception of what’s happening can be wrong, and that will be brought out in this subject at the proper time!

People are often bitter, upset, and disturbed because of the way someone they love dies, putting themselves out of God’s timing for the rest of their lives, as if somehow everything in life is unfair to them.

There is a lot of unfairness in the world, but the minute you react, you are out of God’s timing.

Excuses are never solutions to problems.

Becoming very pushy and trying desperately to make things happen is a sign of being on your own timing.

Your wrong timing as a believer will destroy you and make you miserable in life.

Timing is simply defined as the selection of the best time for doing something in order to achieve the desired effect with maximum results.

For the Church-age believer, timing is a matter of adjusting to and synchronizing with the PPOG.

In God’s plan for your life, bad timing is a matter of being out of fellowship, falling apart when under pressure, being out of the will of God, having the wrong priorities, making the wrong decisions.

The Hebrew for plant is nata which means to plant, to work, to invest.

In our day, “There is a right time to invest and there is a right time to reap from that investment.”

This verse says that whatever you do in life by way of making a living, there’s a right time and a wrong time.

This is saying that timing in life is a matter of knowing what you want to do in life, what business you want to be involved in, what you want to do to make money to sustain yourself.
