"What is the
"twinkling of an eye?" 1 Corinthians 15:52"
John and Doves,
What is the "twinkling of an eye?" [Please read 1
I believe it is the length of time it takes for visible
electro-magnetic energy [light] to change direction at some
boundary of the cornea. When light changes direction, a
"twinkling" occurs. How long is that transition?
Well, it is like a step function in mathematics,
ideally. Therefore, the time approaches zero,
Now, think of this: How much time is there between New
Year's Eve [when people wish each other "peace and safety"--1
Thessalonians 5:3] and New Year's Day?
Let me give you a hint:
"For the righteous
LORD loves justice.
The virtuous will see His face." Psalm 11:7
"Help, O LORD, for
the godly are fast disappearing!
The faithful have vanished from the earth!" Psalm 12:1
The Jewish concept of Heliacal Time can explain why I think
Psalm 11 and Psalm 12 apply to our day.
