Counting by GOD’s Time

counting_timeMeditating on the crucialness of God’s time in the journey of every disciple, Raul & Vivian Hipe composed the following for the Sabbath Interactive Bible Study...

“During this period of our counting to Pentecost there is one element that plays a very significant part—TIME. And there are at least seven (7) major ways/activities the Scriptures tell us regarding how to properly count/ use/ handle time:

• Time to grow (mature) :: 1 Peter 2:2; Hebrews 5:12; Hebrews 6:1
• Time of harvest (increase) :: Luke 10:2; John 4:35; 1 Corinthians 3:6
• Time to awake (seek the LORD) :: Romans 13:11; Hosea 10:12
• Redeeming the time :: Ephesians 5:16; Colossians 4:5
• Sanctifying time :: Genesis 2:2; Leviticus 23:3; Hebrews 4:9-11
• Time of trouble :: Job 38:23; Psalms 41:1
• Time of refreshing (restitution) :: Acts 3:19-21

Based on the above criteria and your own experience from last year’s Pentecost up to now, please tell us some of the lessons you gained from experiencing these “times”. Cite Biblical verses to support your answer.”
