Time no Longer
Then the angel that I saw standing on the sea and on the land raised his right hand to heaven and took a vow in the name of God, who lives forever and ever, who created heaven, earth, and the sea, and everything in them. The angel said, “There will be no more delay! But when the seventh angel blows his trumpet, then God will accomplish his secret plan, as he announced to his servants, the prophets.”(Revelation 10:5-7) Good News Translation
When the mystery of God is finished will time stop? Is eternity being bored out of our minds for ever and ever. Or is eternity where there’s no passage of time? We can solve this conundrum with physics.
The passage above is part of a slight interlude after the 6th trumpet has sounded, before the seventh trumpet sounds. The phrase time no longer is generally considered to mean that there will be no more delay. What’s interesting is that the Greek word Χρόνος – chronos doesn’t mean delay, that’s merely an implication, it means time.
Time: Χρόνος – chronos
- time, a particular time, season.
- xrónos – time (in general), especially viewed in sequence (a “succession of moments”); time in duration in the physical-space world, sovereignly apportioned by God to each person.
- xrónos (“time in sequence, duration”) especially expresses time quantitatively – in contrast to /Ioudaízō (“opportune time”) which portrays time qualitatively (“time as opportunity“).
The Biblical doctrine of gravity gives us data points from which we may derive an equation for gravitational time dilation over distance. It’s predictive and testable. That means it’s scientific. We can then apply our unified theory of everything to deduce that when our featured passage says time no longer, it means time will stop.
