Why Do You Think God Created Time?

Updated: Dec 26, 2018

There is Eternal Life...And Then There Is Time

James 4:13-15 "Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit”— yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. Instead you ought to say, "If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that."

2nd Corinthians 6:2 "For he says, “In a favorable time I listened to you, and in a day of salvation I have helped you.” Behold, now is the favorable time; behold, now is the day of salvation. "

Ephesians 5:15 "Making the best use of the time, because the days are evil."

Pslams 90:12 "So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom."

John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life."

Matthew 25:46 "And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life."

John 5:24 "Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life"

Life Is A Ticking Clock

First were born

And then we die

But the meaning of death

Is just a lie

We all live

Until our life does end

But eventually

We become born again

Unto that of another life

That never ends

Leaving us to wonder

How time began

God created this thing

That we call time

Why would he even create

Such a thing

Do you know why?

I believe because God

Wanted to see

Not only What I would

Make my life mean

But also to see

How much I would make

Him mean to me

Is all about what you decide

Like if you choose to

Live right or choose to sin?

I believe it means more about

Showing all of us

What we mean to him

So yes in a sense

Our life on earth is like a ticking clock

But our new life in him

Will never stop

Above all else time

Was most probably made

To feel how much love

our God can give

So much he gave us his son

So that we could

Know what it means

To truly


In Loving Memory Of My Hidad

Have you ever caught yourself wondering why or what does our time on earth mean? Like why did God create such a thing? Or why does it matter so much to us? Or what makes it so special? If our souls are indeed eternal, why does time even exists to begin with?

Well, I believe a lot of different thoughts when I think about time. I believe time is precious, and that what we do with it matters, not only to God, but also to others. I believe and hope that my time spent on earth, leaves a good impression on the people, whom I love. I also believe that time matters, for example, the legends of people before us, and history and all the stories and prophesies that are told in the bible, I believe it is all there for a reason.

See not only does time teach us things from the past, and things yet to come, it also is probably there to show us why and how to truly love. Life is a gift, so precious, even to those who do not believe. Even they can not deny the meaning of time or that what you make of it, actually can matter a lot.

Without the insistence of it, life would simply not be as precious. That is why we grieve when someone we love dies. We may have the hope as believers that yes, we will see them again, one day in Heaven, when a new life for us began, but we also grieve because for a time, they are gone.

Ever wonder is time actually a punishment? In the garden of Edan, when God created us, in the very beginning, it would seem his intentions, were that we would begin life being an eternal creature, never having to experience the sting of Death. But when Adam and eve sinned against God, he then possibly created time. But time really is not a punishment, as it is a blessing. This is all about how you decide to percieve the matter. Some will see it as a curse of death, others as a meaning to live.

Personally, too me it is there to show us both. All the while God sent his perfect begotten son to live in our perception of time on earth, to die for us. To show us the truth of what it means to love sacrificially and perfectly by trying to follow Christ's example of it. To show us, even more that God loved us from the start, before we even experienced what it means and that even in what seems like it may be a punishment,everything God does or creates works out for our good, making his Word come alive, and his promises real, and that all along, even in the suffering and and in the sin, he truly has always had a great plan.

I hope you enjoyed this post. I hope it will bring you comfort.

I wrote this post In loving memory of my Hidad, who I believe I will meet again. May the memory of him last until the day I die.


Holy Father God,

Everything you do, is great, and i believe in your full plan, and that you are truly for us and not against us. In our suffering and struggle on earth may we always keep the hope of your goodness towards us. May your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven, and may my time on this earth be an example of what love truly does mean. In all ways I thank you for sending the world Jesus Christ to die for me. I wish it wouldn't have had to be so, but yet, it was, and all to show us how much we mean to you. You are the one and only God, and I believe in you alone. Thank you for the gift of life.

In Jesus Christs Name I Pray, Amen
