The Bible, A Time Machine

Matthew 24:35 NIV

Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

I was watching a movie with my son about some kids and a time machine. I was just thinking that reading the Bible is like entering a unique time machine.

In the book of Genesis, we go back to the beginning of the creation of this world. We can imagine the darkness, the void in space, and the Spirit of God, hovering, then, the word of God, creating the light and darkness, sun and moon, every living plant, the oceans and seas, the birds of the air, and all living things.

The unspoiled beauty of the earth must have been so magnificent! The Garden of Eden, must have been so perfect.

Then, our time machine brings us to the introduction of sin, man’s disobedience to God. It spoiled and ruined everything. This was not a little sin. It would bring death to God’s beautiful world. The consequences of sin, were that man would now have to work the land for his food, women would have painful childbirth, the serpent would crawl on its belly,They would eventually die. The man and woman had to leave the garden.

Our time machine travels through the hardships of men, kings, and kingdoms. It shows us the horrible consequences of the first sin. We can see man’s attempt to reach a Holy God, with sacrifice, and offerings.God always reveals Himself, eventually, to let mankind know that He has not abandoned them.

Then we are taken through time to Jesus’s birth. He came to take away the sins of the world. He was God’s way of reaching mankind, and fixing the sin problem. He showed us His love and He was willing to die for us on the cross, to redeem us to God, to conquer sin and death!

Then we take a ride to the early church, and how it grew with faithful witnesses of Christ.

Then to Revelation, John’s vision of heaven, and the end times.

The Bible is a book that gives us all the information we need, to live eternally with Jesus, to escape spiritual death, and the way to have a relationship with God. It tells us many things about the past and the present.

I love reading the Bible!

Dear God, thank You for giving us the opportunity to read Your word. The Bible is an amazing book! I am so grateful that we can read about all the things that happened, and that will happen. I pray that You would give many people a desire to read and study Your word. I pray for Your protection and help. I pray for Your strength. In the name of Jesus, Amen

      • God’s word is timeless and applies to all people of every generation. The virtues and values it teaches us can be applied to all people and they never change, just as God Himself never does.

        The bible has been called by many the best book ever written on human relationships. That is so true!

        Thanks for reading, Dawn…
