Do you want wisdom concerning the end-times timing and signs? Moses prophetically announced these words in Psalm 90:4. “For a thousand years in Your sight are like yesterday when it is past.” A few verses later he prayed, “Teach us to number our days that we may gain a heart of wisdom.”
The Psalm compares God’s eternal, unchanging nature to humanity’s frailty and limited nature. Because these verses are in the Psalms, it is tempting to dismiss them as figurative language and leave it at that. Fortunately, there is another piece in the scriptural puzzle that has the same color and shape. It’s the second witness or confirmation of the truth and it’s found in one of the letters written by the Apostle Peter, part of Jesus’ inner circle of disciples.
He was one of the pupils standing on the Mount of Olives when Jesus introduced the chronos times and kairos signs. If anyone should know what Jesus taught, he should. He writes in 2 Peter 3:8, “But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.”
To paraphrase Peter, if there’s one thing we Levelers need to understand about the chronos times it’s this one thing: God counts the passing of time differently than we do on earth. This shouldn’t surprise us since God is timeless and His ways and thoughts are higher than our ways (Isaiah 55:9). To God, one Day on His redemptive timetable equals 1,000 years. That’s simple and clear. It’s the one thing we need to be able to number our days.
