The World of Time had its birth in the World of Eternity.
The World of Time had its beginnings; while the World of Eternity exists, uncreated, from timeless eternity, to timeless eternity, without beginning or end, within the World of its Own Infinite Uncreated Mystery. (Isaiah 57:15)
Time relates to the creature, not to the Uncreated Creator, for it is 'within' the Uncreated World of the Being of the Uncreated Creator that the Created World of the Creature had its beginning, has been born, and come to 'be'.
("It is in Him that we live and move and have our being." Acts 17:28)
("To have faith is to be sure of the things we hope for,
to be certain of the things we cannot see." Hebrews 11:1)
("It is by faith that we understand the world was created by the Word of God,
and from that which is invisible, visible things have been made." Hebrews 11:3; John 1:14)
The creature's life unfolds from its beginning, growing and developing to discover first, itself; then its world; and from there to further discover the sure existence of the Creator's Own Uncreated World cloaked in its Infinite, Timeless Mystery.
And so the unfolding life of the creature, finds itself brought to a point of awesome wonder when it finds its Creator-Benefactor has not only called him into the life of His Created World, but to an ultimate unfolding and sharing in the unending, timeless, wonder of His own gloriously awesome, infinite, Uncreated Life, World and Being.
("Eternal life is to know Thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom Thou has sent." John 17:3)
Wonder upon endless wonders...
O God, may every heart find you, and
be caught up in the chorus of endless
adoration, praise and thanksgiving...
Eternal love, eternal wonder.
