1 Cor.. 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
The Greek word from which the English word, moment, is translated is atomos. Atomos is defined as indivisible. The English word, atom, is derived from this Greek word. (See the page, All Power to read more about the atom.)
An atom of anything is the smallest possible piece into which that thing can be divided. From that point if it is further divided, it is no longer the same material. There is a little more information about the atom on the page, All Power.
When the Holy Spirit told Paul to use the term, atom, in relation to a length of time, He was giving us not only information about how long it will take for the change to made in the saints from corruption to perfection, but He was also giving us a clue about the relationship between the Material Realm and the Spiritual Realm.
Mankind, from the beginning has developed the means to measure the passage of time/ Nearly all of those methods have involved observing the movements of the heavenly bodies. Even though we can measure time in giga seconds today, we are still dependent upon the Second.
A second of time is just a period of time that is a piece of an hour, which is a piece of a day, which is a piece of lunar cycle, which is b piece of a solar year. (Howbeit, the calendar is now based upon celestial observations of the year divided down by days, by hours, by minutes, to seconds.
As an interesting aside, the seven day week is the only period of time not based upon celestial observation. To be sure the year is based upon such observations, as is the month. But there is no reason at all to have divided the year into 52 weeks except for the Bible. Six days God worked building the universe and all that is in it. And on the seventh day He rested. The Sabbath is the only basis for a seven day week.
Even though we have been measuring the passage of time since the beginning, science still does not know for sure whether time passes in an infinitely smooth stream or in almost infinitely small packets. The Holy Spirit told us over two thousand years ago that time passes in infinitesimally small packets call atoms of time.
An atom of time is of such short duration that it cannot be further divided. None the less, since time passes by way of these atoms of time, there has to be something that exists between each atom that separates one atom from another. It is impossible that there can be nothing separating each atom of time, because, then there would be no separation, and there would be no atoms of time. Time would have no meaning if it were not separated into something and that separation filled with something else.
Man has speculated for generations that time could be the fourth dimension in the Universe. It turns out that it is, although, probably in not exactly in the same way as in their speculations.
The Bible says, “In the beginning God created the Heavens and the earth.” For it to have been “in the beginning,” the concept of TIME would have also had to have been put in place. For there to have been evenings and mornings, TIME must have existed for them to have meaning. But TIME does not exist in ETERNITY. Therefore, God would have also had to have divided His Creation out from ETERNITY. Within that separation from Eternity, He stretched out the atoms of time from the Beginning to the End. Time is the fourth dimension that contains all of the other three dimensions of the Creation.
Since God separated time into atoms and created the Heaven and earth within those separations, the entire cosmos is now filled with those same atoms of time, When God said, “Let there be light,” all of that light entered the entire Cosmos at the same atom of time. And from that atom of time onward to the end of time, the entire cosmos has been being passed from the beginning of time toward the end of time through the same atoms of time.
So Time exists in a “bubble“ within Eternity, and the Cosmos exists within Time. This entire cosmos is, at the same instant, being subjected to the same atom of time as the cosmos is passed from one atom to the next. Therefore, since time is constructed from atoms and Time can only outside of ETERNITY, we are being opened to Eternity in between every atom of time. Anytime God wants to make something happen on earth or anywhere else within the Cosmos, He has all of Eternity to make it happen in between any atom of time He desires to do so. And to us temporal beings, it will be instantaneous. TIME truly is the FOURTH DIMENSION, and ETERNITY is the FIFTH AND INFINITE DIMENSION. And God, our Father and Lord Jesus Christ, is outside and beyond all of these dimensions that are all within the Eternal Godhead. HE is a Sixth Dimension that engulfs, yet permeates, all of the other five dimensions. Therefore, all of Eternity and all of the Cosmos is within The Godhead. “For in him we live, and move, and have our being.” Acts 17:28
Mankind says that we have measured the speed of light, but have we?
What has been measured is the velocity of that portion of His Light that came to be within the Creation when God spoke and said, “Let there be light.” That portion of light is being passed from atom to atom of time just like the rest of the Creation and, therefore, can travel from location to location within the three dimensions in which we exist. And its velocity can be measured as it travels from point to point just as the velocity of anything else that moves within these three dimensions can be measured. It is a fundamental argument that Time multiplied by Velocity equals Distance.
For all of my lifetime I was told by men science, falsely so called, that the speed of Light was constant. No matter where it was seen or measured, it would always be the Constant C, which was Approximately 186,000 miles per second. About the only question I missed in General Science in school was how fast does light travel. I wrote, “Depends on where it is traveling.” Turns out today that I was right. Some time back, the scientific community got turned on its ear when someone of their group proved and demonstrated that the speed of Light is not constant.
This person was probably using millions of tax payer dollars to fund his research. I, on the other hand, based my reasoning on trying to shoot fish in the water and watching bullet slowdown and its track bend after it entered the water. It takes about sixty pages of convoluted explanations, by those who study such things, to explain how, even though a prism bends light into separate colors of light, each one of those colors of light are still traveling at C. I was told as a young man that if the speed of light were to change, the whole universe would collapse. Such is the fantastic reasoning by those philosophers who call them selves scientists.
But is light restricted to existing only in these three dimensions?
1 John 1:5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
“God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.” Is there anywhere that exists where God is not? I believe yes. Jesus spoke of an outer darkness three times in the Book of Matthew. It is a place you do not even want to visit much be thrown into for Eternity. It that place that is reserved for those who HAVE NO FAITH.
Matt. 22:12-13 And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless. (13) Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Having no wedding garment at the wedding feast of the King’s Son is a metaphor for having no faith at the marriage supper of the Lamb.
The GODHEAD have given mankind the invitation to the marriage supper of the lamb. But in order to attend we must be clothed in Garments clean and white which is the righteousness of the saints.
Rev 19:7-8 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. (8) And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.
Rom 4:5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.
So, if faith is counted as righteousness to those who believe on Jesus Christ, and the righteousness of the saints is the garment worn by those who attend the Marriage Supper of the Lamb, those who are cast into outer darkness are those who have no faith.
To avoid going to that place, you must choose to do two things: Isa. 45:22 Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else. And after having believed, you must continue to believe until the end, either the end of your life, or until the end of time. In between those time you should study to show your self approved.

The Power to Love
1 Pet. 4:8-9 And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall
cover the multitude of sins. (9) Use hospitality one to another without grudging.
Rom. 13:8 Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath
fulfilled the law.
John 15:12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else. (23) I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear. Isa. 45:22-23
1 Cor. 12:31 But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.
1 Cor. 13:8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.
