Time travel is real

We don’t often give serious thought to the concept of time, but we frequently check our clocks and calendars. Even if one is retired, life is structured around schedules and routines. Don’t mess with mealtime!

It can be fun and also mind-bending to venture into, as it’s called in Star Trek, the time-space continuum. I love movies and books that explore time travel. Scientifically of course, it doesn’t work – or maybe it does.

God is the creator of time and space; he lives outside of both but he freely ‘moves’ in, out, around and through. He’s not limited the way we are, bound up in our linear timeline and restricted by laws of physics.

Psalm 139:1-6 in The Passion Translation tells us:

 “Lord, you know everything there is to know about me. You perceive every movement of my heart and soul, and you understand my every thought before it even enters my mind. You are so intimately aware of me, Lord. You read my heart like an open book and you know all the words I’m about to speak before I even start a sentence! You know every step I will take before my journey even begins. You’ve gone into my future to prepare the way, and in kindness you follow behind me to spare me from the harm of my past. With your hand upon my life, you impart a blessing to me. This is just too wonderful, deep, and incomprehensible! Your understanding brings me wonder and strength.”

Jesus is our past, present and future and he is our redeemer. He redeems our past – it can’t hurt us anymore (Isaiah 43:18-19). He redeems our present with his grace and love (2 Corinthians 12:9). He is redeeming our future, preparing a place for us so we can be with him forever (John 14:2-3).

Time travel is possible and God does it all the time. He doesn’t need a spaceship and his mission, unlike that of the people on Star Trek, who are only interested in exploring space, is one of love for us, his children.
