The Mystery of Time and Seasons Part 1
(An Extract from message preached by on 6th January, 2019)

With Apostle Joseph Ziba

And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: Genesis 1:14 KJV

The first thing you must pay attention to in the scripture above is that by this time man had not yet been created. This tells us that God created time (days, months and years) and that He is behind the years. God also made creation to respect time. Seasons respect time. For instance, in its proper time rainy season comes and so do the rest of the seasons.

There are years in God and He knows that there are 12 months in a year. After them something new starts.

Seeing his days are determined, the number of his months are with thee, thou hast appointed his bounds that he cannot pass; 6 Turn from him, that he may rest, till he shall accomplish, as an hireling, his day. Job 14:5 – 6

As much as it may not make sense for someone to ask God to turn away from him, the scriptures above reveals that man who knows that life is determined and short.

Life is for a determined time and time is of the essence.

Time to God is not as we see it, time to God is the event in it— God’s concern is the event of time. When you waste your time, you are wasting the divine assignment or event.

The question to you is: “Is what is filling your time a waste?”. Time is a gift from God to you. He has allowed you to live in that space of time, don’t waste it.

Why is the Time Created by God Important?

God gives us a new year for a reason. You must know that “years to God are a circle”. Rather, you move from January to December then to another January and the circle repeats itself.

This circle tells you that:

1. There is another opportunity granted to you

God made sure that everything should repeat or provide itself again in 12 months; thus making sure that creation gives you another opportunity.

For example, the rainy season comes again in case the last time it came you missed it and failed to plant your seeds.

Your cry this new year should be that God should give you the wisdom so that you miss no opportunities on your way.

2. There should be an end to certain events.

Without the numbering of years we wouldn’t have known when and where to start again. But thanks be unto God for the circle of years.

January should be a fresh start for you. All the pain from the previous year shouldn’t be allowed to crossover. Mark all the things that you don’t want in your life and don’t carry them over into the new year.

Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain:Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. James 4:13

Life is determined and short. The scriptures above call life “a vapour”. Don’t plan for tomorrow when you know you can do things today and now.

Ecclesiastes 3:9 – 11

The greatest disappointment is when you get what you didn’t expect. When you expect it, you can time it.

Man is comfortable in the comfort of familiarity.

Experience in the things of God is the enemy of your movement.

There is a path which no fowl knoweth, and which the vulture’s eye hath not see Job 28:7

What no eye has seen cannot be consulted. Experience cannot take you there; it needs radical thinkers.

Make History; Don’t Keep It!

In the book of Genesis Chapter 5 verses 5 and 6 and verses 22 to 24 we see different people who lived on earth and what they were able to do. Sadly most of them we’re only recorded as having born children and died. Enoch was an exception. Unlike others he didn’t just bear children he is also recorded as having walked with God until God took him.

Emulate Enoch who didn’t just bear children but lived a life worthwhile (he walked with God)— he made history. Don’t be a keeper of history but be a maker of it.
