Prior to the creation of Jesus time could not have existed. The Bible refers to Jehovah as needing nothing or no one. His first act of creation, that of Jesus, also sat into motion time. Mankind refers to time as a moving river, and this is the closest analogy we can use to comprehend such a complex issue. However when thinking of time as a river we must have a reference point from which time moves or is flowing against. In the sciences of the learned there is no such reference which has created a paradox without end. However when time is view as flowing away from something it then becomes an easier concept to grasp. In the chart above the creation of Jesus was also the point of which time begins to move away from. Therefore the “river” of time moves out of the First Born of all Creation. All other elements are “in” the river of time, as a part of time itself.
It is reasonable to conclude that at this point or close to this point Jehovah and Jesus spent “time” together to get to “know” each other. Of course one needs to keep in mind “time” was only required for Jesus as well as the “knowing”. It may very well have been during this time that Jehovah revealed His Purpose to Jesus and thus begin the input from Jesus. At some point in “time” (it is important to note time is relevant only to Jesus at this point) the creation of the entire Angelic Host started. How this came about and the order is as yet unknown to us. Undoubtedly the entire Heavenly Host existed for some time to allow teaching and understand to take place. At some point in “time” (relevance of time would now involve not only Jesus but also the entire Heavenly Host, but from their own perspectives) Jehovah and Jesus turned their attention to the creation of the physical universe. As to why that “time” in time was chosen is not relevant, one must keep in mind Jehovah has a Purpose behind the entire act of creation, which began out of love, and within that Purpose all things are measured out in “time” as it started from Jesus. From the first act of creation of a subatomic particle to the present man has learned that about 13.5 billion years has elapsed. One needs to keep in mind however this a best guess based on current understanding. At some point in the physical creation Jehovah and Jesus turned their attention to the Earth (again why that “time” chosen has no relevance to man’s concept of time, it was in “time” with the Purpose of Jehovah). After several million years of preparing the Earth attention was now given to the creation of man. The creation of man and the entire act of creation from Jesus to man was done as an act of love from Jehovah as He wanted to give His give of life to others. After the creation of Adam some time (relevant now not only to Jesus and the Heavenly Host, but also to Adam) was to pass before the creation of Eve. It was at some point after the creation of Eve that a rebellion against Jehovah’s Purpose began. This started in Heaven as a lone angel questioned Jehovah’s method of government. Soon the angel later known as Satan got Adam and Eve to side with him. This event did not alter Jehovah’s Purpose, just the time line of its fulfillment had to be adjusted.
So then what is time?
Time is the measure of all events in creation as they flow from the Firstborn of all Creation, Jesus.
Questions to answer
