I want you to take a minute and have an open mind. Most of us probably see time as a straight line that has a beginning, middle, and end. Maybe it does, but eternity is a whole different reality. What if from eternity you could visit time at any point you wanted to? Is it possible to really time travel?
Jesus is the Great IAM. That means He is who He is and to Him everything is in the present. So, here is a thought that I want you to try and ponder. Imagine the mountain that Jesus was transfigured on being a place where time stood still and converged with other places in time. For a moment the glory of an eternal God came down to Earth. It brought eternity and time together as one. At that moment two men from history, Moses and Elijah showed up. Each was from their own time, but saw Jesus as the glory of God. Moses had that awesome experience with Christ maybe during his 40 days on Mt. Carmel. Elijah also saw the glory of the Lord during his mountain top experience after being discouraged. Both encountered the glory of the great IAM as a present from the ever-present God in a moment that bridged time and space. Both men went back to their time encouraged to live their faith before their generation.
A little far-fetched? Maybe to our limited human minds, but not to the One who holds time and eternity in His hands. I have to believe that He sees us all, throughout history all at the same time. That is why Jesus’ death covered the sin of all mankind that ever lived in one special moment. Time is a tool, I think, that an eternal God uses so wisely to redeem his creation throughout the ages. He is the ultimate time traveler in my book.
