"Dewey Re Time"

Hi Dewey & Doves:

I have understood for a long time that "time is speeding up" or as you say moving faster. The difficulty is though we perceive it we cannot measure it as we do not have a frame of reference. The days are not long they are over in a blink, the fact is confirmed when children are saying how quickly Christmas comes around, when I was a child Christmas took forever. You cannot get no where near as much done as you could ten years ago.

I believe there are two reasons for this: 1) God is sick of the sin of this world so

Rom 9:28  For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth.

2) Shortening the days for the Elect's sake-I believe this is the meaning of this verse that God is speeding up time.

If time is speeded up not only can we do less in a day or a year but also the enemy. Is this concept of varying length of time for time scriptural? Consider another view of the following commandment:

Exo 20:12  Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.

Long days may not necessarily mean only long life but may also indicate long days, a quality of life with time to converse with God, friends and strangers and not need to be rushing around being programed with the time is money mentality of the World- length of days if you will.

The following scriture speaks it better than I do and makes the distinction between length of days and long life:

Pro 3:2  For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee.

So we now see from scripture that time can vary, what shall we say? Shall we coin something new like: Speed of time?

If  I were asked to compare present time to past time of forty years ago I would say that time is approximately 1/3 now of what it was then, and my guess is it will speed up greatly during the last week.
