Food For Thought from Pastor Robert Weaver
Bulletin for May 1, 2016
There are two words used most often in the New Testament to distinguish time. The one we are most familiar with is chronos because it has made its way into our language. We know what a chronology is and we are familiar with a chronological sequence. There even is a fancy word for a watch called a chronometer. This is one of the Greek words for time has crept into our language. Chronos is the word that was used to mark off time as it passes. Ticks on a clock and hours that pass into days that is chronos.
The other commonly used word for time in the New Testament is kairos. We are not as familiar with this word likely because it has not gained common usage in our society. This is a word that is meant to signify an event or an occasion and by definition it is not a specific number of minutes or hours. It is a way to describe that something is happening.
We can see in these two words an example for our life and future with Jesus Christ. Right now here on earth we live in chronos. Hours become days and days become years. Yet forever with our Saviour in heaven will be kairos. The contrast is drawn for us in the Scriptures. Psalm 90 speaks of our life span as “70 years or 80 years, if we have the strength” (Psalm 90:10). In comparison, Jesus makes His promise to “come back and take you to be with Me that you may be where I am.” (John 14:3) There is a time coming when our chronos will give way to kairos and we will be forever with our Saviour. It is the time when we will forget about what time it is and forever live in the occasion because we will be basking in the beautiful glory of our God.
I want to leave you with this truth. The Apostle John was told at the end of Revelation: “Do not seal up the words of this prophecy because the kairos is near.” (Revelation 22:10) What is the kairos he is talking about? Jesus makes it plain to us in 22:7 what this “time” is: “behold, I am coming soon!”
