A TIME FOR EVERY PURPOSE
By Dr. Wesley Swift - 9-2-64
Time---is a dimension in which something happens---a measurement between events. We are in solar time part of the Universe, but in the program of God we are in the Sidereal time which is almost incomprehensible. Everything is in orbit, in the Universe, around the Pleaides the probable orbital center of the known Universe. The multiple millions and millions of years that it would take to make one sidereal orbit in its relationship to the Milky Way and to the bands of Orion are almost beyond calculation. We understand that there are some which make such a trip in one trillion years, but we also know that some parts of the Universe are 150 million years in movement, all these things are 'Timed'. We then can talk about Gods time, this is not a great cycle of upheaval. HE has been putting things together, forming, but always working toward ends of purpose which HE ordained way back before the beginning of any creation.
TIME is not a limitation upon our Father for he has always existed. There is no beginning or end for HIM, thus this is also true for those who are the Essence of HIS spirit, His household, His offspring. It seems as tho Time is moving faster today, since it is the end of the age where communication and transportation allows you to move all over the world. Today the Beast System can Talk to you---The Image of the Beast speaks to you over T.v., and now both forces of darkness and forces of Light compete for your time and attention. This does not change the fact of who you are and where you came from, or what you are here for. It doesn't change the fact that it is your responsibility of bringing the world into proper relationship with God.
Ecclesiastics 3:1------'To everything there is a season, and a time, to every purpose under heaven, a time to be born, a time to die, a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted.' God has set the awareness of the things he has made in the hearts of his people, so that they may become aware of the evaluation of His creation. But only by the Spirit of God can these things be communicated to the children of spirit------what so ever God does, he does forever, nothing can be added to it, and nothing taken away. He does it so that men can love and serve before HIM. Thus this He requires, that His children war on unrighteousness and darkness. 'For many things befall the sons of men, and some that befall even beasts befall the sons of men, but God makes manifest that they -- the sons -- are not beasts, they are the children of His Kingdom.' Then this declaration--- 'As all seem to go to one place, (physically) into the dust, and that all by apparent observation are dust again, still who knoweth about the spirit?' The Spirit of man goeth upward and the spirit of beasts goeth back down into the earth'-----The translation of Beast-is referring to non spirit men. Thus He synchronizes His work with the program of His Kingdom, and there is then 'A Time for every purpose.'
As to individuals-after Adams fall, still they lived almost a time of 1000 years of physical life, but thru these years when the time since the spiritual aura faded has increased then physical life span has been reduced so much. Today we are on the other end of a great rainbow of --Time--for we are now approaching the restoration of immortality, which our father Adam lost, and which our Father in heaven has promised to restore. --There is then a TIME for everything, a time for the restoration of the Kingdom in its fullness. YAHWEH has already settled in heaven just when certain things are to happen, and Predestination is thus a Biblical word which we find woven into the scriptures. God has Pre-determined the course of events, and how they shall come to pass. These events will come to pass whether we want them to or not. There comes to the consciousness of His children a realization that He intends to bring about the Victory of His Kingdom. Feb.4, 1962 we saw the sign of the Son of Man in the heavens, and in the year 1963 we saw more signs of that measure come to pass. As time moves forward then we will see more judgments of God come into play as this end of the age moves forward and overlaps with the old. This is HIS measure, not the measure of man, we cannot change it, we just need to realize our place in this measure of 'time', and watch for developments of this measure. God knew from the beginning that you were his household, He then selected you to live at this time---and your time then to be born was know to HIM.
Oh! you say--you don't like this 'Time to die'? Well even that time will be reached where there will be no more death, and this 'Time' has also been predetermined. In the meantime we are dealing with an Archangel who became very materialistic, who had opportunities and great power, but in his desire to take over the universe he became intrigued with babbles, and gold, and jewels. Pretty -- yes, but when compared with the knowledge, wisdom and power he once had, it was not worth it -- he gambled and lost. Even the chaos and assimilation in earth today because of this rebellious archangel has also been known, limited, scheduled -- 'Timed' and has its end. After that the kingdom of God is to put and end to error, and put the world in proper balance.
Since the great rebellion, the placing of Adam and Eve in earth, the spreading of the kingdom thru out the earth--all this has taken 'time' but we are on the other end of this time schedule and we shall see the Rascals go where they will no more be able to create havoc in earth. We thus see that in this 'time' period, event after event has taken place, and always the Race has battled the darkness as they spread out over the earth. And this battle continues, for we find there there is a dimension of energy which takes form in the thought rays out of the mind of God, into his children that are the tomorrows of Destiny. In this dimension God is thinking, planning, and forming the energies of tomorrow, and He sees it as clearly as what He wished, and desires as to what you and I might do in the prophetic 'time' of His program.
In every conquest, as catastrophe overwhelms areas of society; In every great transition, from one condition in society to another, there is upheaval and there is loss. Little do we understand the balance of the wind, and how the mind of the creator can set in motion event the particles of the atmosphere until they move with a mighty wind and storm. Jesus proved this with his words:---'Peace-----be still'. The most important thing for us to understand is that there is 'Time' for us to finish the task the Father has ordained. When we read:----'Time shall be no more' (Rev: 10:6) this did not mean there would no longer be a dimension of operation in which these things could happen. It meant God has ended 'The Time' for the enemy to keep on harassing his kingdom. No longer is there time for the enemy to accomplish all he has planned, his 'time' is short!. Lucifer then walked to and fro upon the earth like a roaring lion, for he knows his time is short, He's seen the measures, and if he cannot wipe out God's Kingdom then the kingdom is going to take back the earth. We tell you there is no ---if---in God's time. The measures have been set, things are happening on schedule. How does He bring it about? -- It is in the capacity of God to give such a cognition of shock treatment to the soul consciousness of His children until that person will turn back unto HIM, and do the things which they are spiritually intelligent enough to do.----How do I know:---well, look at what happened to Zacchaeus----he stopped him with a great impact, and he even stopped collecting taxes and climbed a tree, to see God-----that is spiritual power----super-natural power.
Now; 'I call my sheep by name----I lead them out, I give them Eternal Life --They shall never perish. ' God can quicken his people, and even tho a lot of his people don't know who they are, or what is coming to pass, and will be bewildered when they see the kind of world they are living in crumble and fall, all tumble down, still he has promised to restore His Kingdom, and this 'time' shall come. And all the world will be better off when the Kingdom is in place.
God took men like John into space, into dimensions where they could think HIS thoughts, and traveled with them into His tomorrows and those men came out of these experiences with the revelations for us. We then tell you that God will make up peoples minds when it is necessary for them to move in a positive direction, thus he control's the movement of the enemy and there is no necessity for you to bow or surrender to the enemy as we see even the organized church doing today. But there will be ONE Baptism, One Faith, one great militant church whose entire ministry and it's people are determined to fulfill the whole program of God's Kingdom, to proclaim the Oracle of His Gospel, and to bring out all things which are a divine mystery. We want you to understand that there has never been a period just like this one. We see great churches which even preach the communist doctrine, and that makes it obvious that we have come to the end of the age. The True church is the Oracle of God, it was built for that purpose, and where God stimulates His people, then the true church will stand forth. There is then a great struggle going on here in America, the enemy must destroy the True church or they are finished. But the Great Spiritual power of God is going to restore His church, empower his ministry and empower his people.
We tell you that Jesus Christ is going to take over the world. There is no great power that will protect and raise the dead among the 'show' religions who deny the power thereof. I am going to tell you that before long you will see miracle power bestowed on the true church, bestowed on its people, because we have the super-natural power, we have a super-natural God who says:------'The Time is now'. There is a time and a purpose for all things, and now is the 'Time' for my kingdom, my church, my race, my nation to shine forth.
