Concept of time and space


God is no stranger to Middle Easterners’ concepts of time and space.  Intrusions into space have taken the form of miracles, while dreams have interrupted time.

Visions and dreams significantly interrupt Muslims’ lives, just as they interrupted the lives of many biblical characters.  Praying for, and being interpreters of such dreams and visions is a significant contribution for sensitive Western Christians to make to evangelism among Muslims today.

The potency of revelation of Jesus lies in the Holy Spirit’s appropriating concepts of ‘time’ and ‘space’ already functioning in the worldviews of Muslims.

Non-Western Christians are perhaps more readily accepting of constructs of ‘reality’ in which the kind of occurrences illustrated here make sense.  Western Christians who admit the possibility of the sun’s shadow being reversed in answer to Gideon’s prayer, or the overruling of the laws of thermodynamics in a Babylonian fiery furnace, should make potential co-labourers in cultures closer to those of the Bible than our own secular humanist model.






About evanlaar1922

Have you ever noticed how many special ways God refers to us, His dear children? He calls us His beloved sons and daughters, the righteous, children of the kingdom, His anointed, royal priesthood, the faithful in Christ, His temple, His friends, and so many other loving names that speaks to who we are in Him. Also in many cases, the names we are given at birth have both biblical and heavenly identities tied into them. Our Heavenly Father who watches over us daily has created the ideal path for each of us to take to travel the journey of life, just as a father will make plans for his own child by putting things in place at a very early age for education, health, graduation, and marriage. God has predestined and equipped each of us to carry out a specific purpose that will create the design He desires to be in place for His kingdom to be effective in the earth.
