"And sware by him that liveth for ever 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."
I am a Science Fiction fanatic, and I love stories about alternate realities, wormholes, and time travel. But seeing something similar in the scriptures is slightly more mind-boggling. I mean... time. Not exist? We eat it for breakfast in the morning, and live on it every minute (see??) of the day... I have a good friend who says "timing is everything" and it really is, in so many ways... in this life. Are our imaginations big enough to imagine life without time? Where there is no beginning or ending, but everything is before us? I mean... walking on the water. I can imagine that... I can get my mind around the concept... but no time? The closest I get is when I think about repentance, and the power that God gives us to change ourselves and basically erase the past… because if God says he will remember it no more, and he knows EVERYTHING, then … it really doesn’t even exist anymore in a way, right? My mind can almost get there thinking along those lines... that who I am is a decision, and that the past and the future (see, I wouldn't even think these words if I really had it) are all part of now, who I am, who I was, who I will be, that is a decision I make in this moment. Hmm. I don't have it... but maybe it is one reason that we have to work through the past... because in a way, it is still before us, still us. And until we come to terms with the entire picture, and accept who we were and have been, then we can't change it, and make that difference in who we are, now, then, and eternally.
