There are 957 verses of scripture in the KJV Bible that have the word 'time' in them.

I thought that must make it a pretty important subject so I decided to do a little research.

Webster: A continuous period measured by clocks, watches and calendars; the period or
moment in which something happens or takes place.

Smith's Bible Dictionary: Besides the ordinary use of this word (re: Webster) ...

Wikipedia: Time is a component of a
measuring system used to sequence events, to compare the durations of events and the intervals between them, and to quantify the motions of objects. Time has been a major subject of religion, philosophy, and science, but defining time in a non-controversial manner applicable to all fields of study has consistently eluded the greatest scholars.

Uh Huh! OK 957 verses refer to time, "this time" "your time" "it's time" "by time" "first time" "last time" It's pretty obvious that it is a word that truly is in reference to the period or moment in which something happens or takes place, good ole Webster!

The phrase "my time" was spoken 4 times in the bible and three of those times by Christ, "God's time" was never said in the Holy Bible The Word of God.

There is no such thing as time in reference to God, He was- He is- He always will be. I can only imagine that time has no meaning for Him accept in reference to us. The three references made by Christ were each related to His time of death which would bring about the Resurrection and salvation of mankind.

Matthew 26:18, John 7:6, John 7:8

So for me the most important 'period or moment in which something happens or takes place' or, 'time' in the whole of the world, in the whole of the Holy Bible is the resurrection of Christ.

John 11:25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: 26: And whosever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

I sure do.

  1. Time means nothing to God, but I guess He mentions it so many times in His Word because He knows it means so much to us.

    And I think you're right. The most important moment in the Bible for us is the resurrection of Christ.

    Amen! Amen!
