Time passes differently in Heaven than here on earth. Understanding this helps us to understand the 2nd coming of Jesus Christ better. We learn that one day in Heaven is 1000 years here on earth. What this means from my understanding is that once you lose a loved one; it’s like they are expecting you moments after they arrive in heaven; it would be just minutes or just a couple of hours to them, depending on how many years you live after they pass on.
This means that 1000 years on earth is only 24 hours in Heaven, one day.
You can find this scripture in; 2 Peter 3:8–9
King James Version
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.
9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
A few years ago, I remembered researching this, among other things, and came across someone who posted and mentioned; perhaps this is not what it means.
It is all I could do to hold myself back; the message is direct as it gets; it starts by saying,
“Beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing,” it’s like the scripture is screaming; I speak the truth. And despite that, the reader wants to change it to some other meaning.
Revelation Chapter 10: John seals up many things relative to the last days—He is commissioned to participate in the restoration of all things.
1 And I saw another mighty angel come down from Heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire;
2 And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea and his left foot on the earth,
3 And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.
4 And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.
5 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted his hand to Heaven,
6 And sware by him that liveth forever and ever, who created Heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:
7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.
8 And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and the earth.
9 And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book.
And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.
10 And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand and ate it up, and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.
11 And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, nations, tongues, and kings.
Many understand that when the 7th Seal opens, it is considered the 7th day. So the beginning of the 7th day, the Trumpets will begin to sound.
They understand that each Seal stands for 1000 years; you can read about the seven seals in the book of revelation. So we’re living during the 6th Seal, and it’s closing in; the 7th Seal will be upon us shortly; I expect it to be about the year 2033, and for a good reason. Remember, most people think that the seals are things that happen in the latter days. But each and eventual Seal represents one thousand years.
At the beginning of the eighth day, there will be no more time.
Enoch 33:1 And I appointed the eighth day (eternity) also, that the eighth day should be the first-created after my work, and that the first seven revolve in the form of the seventh thousand. Therefore, at the beginning of the eight thousand, there should be a time of not-counting, endless, with neither years nor months nor weeks nor days nor hours.
We live during the 6th Seal and before the 7th Seal; you can expect a significant earthquake that will shake the entire planet.
Lets us prepare for the 2nd coming of Jesus Christ, for we live in some exciting times. Let us draw closer to God; let us pray every day. God be with you, for he loves you. Let us draw closer.
