1 Time Is Relevant By Ray Ritchie! on Tue Sep 19, 2017 10:05 am



Time is a commodity of the present dispensation of creation. Time is essential to our existence and purpose. God commissioned time. Time is a pressure mechanism to exhort us to walk in the consciousness of our vaporous condition. We are eternal beings walking in a temporary realm. Many today exhort us to be at ease concerning time and promote laxity in our ambition to fulfill our destiny. It is usually those whom are lethargic themselves and ambiguous about their own calling, purpose, and commission.
Procrastination is the putting off intentionally and habitually something which should be done immediately. There are things in life which God does purpose us to wait upon; however prayer is the primary way to know what the perfect will of God is. Creation time is allotted to mankind for the purpose of numerating our days in relationship to earth life. God has given us space which is three dimensional; space can be measured in length, width, and height. Our lives are measured by the three dimensions of time; past, present, and future. God himself is outside of time and inside of time at the same time. We are told to put our time in perspective to our eternity and to fulfill the mandates of scriptural imperatives or simply put to do the will of God.
(15) See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
(16) Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
(17) Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. Ephesians 5:15-17
We can walk in procrastination or perseverance; we can habitually waste time or habitually redeem time. A day spent without prayer is another day spent without preparation those whom are not persevering in seeking the Lord will never understand the will of God and how to utilize their time effectively. Time is a daily walk through life which is relevant to our life in Christ and our relationship to God and our commission to mankind. We’re exhorted to seek wisdom; to embrace its virtues enhancing our walk and receiving its blessings. Our time is allotted to give our lives as a definition of the character of the person and cause of Christ; this is our responsibility.
(2) Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving;
(3) Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds:
(4) That I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak.
(5) Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time. (6) Let your speech be alway with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man. Colossians 4:2-6
Time is a commodity for this dispensation of reality. It is dissected in increments of moments; those moments are precious because within a few seconds life can change drastically. Therefore we must cherish every moment of our time with respect. Time never stops! Time is ever moving forward and will continue until God has no more use for time concerning humanity. That time is quickly approaching so we should take the exhortation in Colossians seriously. We should pray without ceasing praying for others and praying for a door of utterance to speak the mysteries of Christ to a lost world. We should walk in the wisdom of the word having our grace seasoned with the preserving power of God’s word and knowledge to minister that grace to others whom are seeking answers for our lifestyle.
Brethren let us remember we are a chosen generation called to a royal priesthood which demands greater faith than the Old Covenant. It is of the utmost importance that we do not take our time on earth lightly and marginalized the God who has called us to use them for the purpose of bringing men to the marvelous light of Christ and be saved.
So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom. (Psalms 90:12)
Brethren, hear the will of the Lord as you pray today; call upon his name in Spirit and Truth. Let not your hearts be troubled; knowing that God orders the steps of the righteous and prepares their goings. May you receive instruction and become a more useful instrument of his righteousness. Selah
Shalom, Agape, & Amen!
D.R. Ritchie (Emissary)
