“…So evening the evening and the morning were the first day.” [Genesis 1:5b]

Here it is again — God beginning at the end!  So the evening and the morning were the first day. Why the end of the day first?  Here is the proof that there is no “time” as man knows it.  With God, it’s all one and the same!  God is both present and future—both here and now and then and after.   The beginning and the end are one and the same with God.

“It is finished,” Christ said, yet it was the beginning.  From that beginning we are journeying back, a journey that begins and ends with face-time with our heavenly Father.  Faith may begin with man-size steps, but ends with becoming childlike to enter the kingdom, perhaps because going back to the child within is the only pathway for inner healing and total restoration.   Always the process of life is taking us back — back to the garden, back to the Cross, back to the basics.

In our nation many more corporate examples exist.  A parent goes back to having school in the home and calls it “home schooling.”  Christians in vast numbers are having church in their homes and calling it “home church.”  Men and women everywhere are either growing or buying “organic” vegetables or “grass fed beef.”  They are going back to the land and nature.  Life individually and corporately is journeying backward.   Compressed time is the compass of faith.  The “now” faith of the writer of Hebrews is the faith of Matthew that is as small as a mustard seed yet has the strength to move a mountain.  Time is obliterated the second faith acts and life morphs into a new dimension—the fourth dimension of faith, the faith of a God who is Alpha and Omega!
