How many people reflect on the fact that we calculate
TIME; the clock; the calendar, out from the moment
that Jesus Christ was born ?
We say we are in year 2023, counted and calculated
from the TIME God manifested His Presence by
being born in humble and obscure circumstances.
Apart from the 3 years He spent in Ministry, He
spent his young life in the same hidden and
unspectacular way, and His Death on the Cross was
the way of a criminal.
When we meditate on "Glory be to the Father, The
Son and the Holy Spirit, as it was in the Beginning,
is Now and Ever shall be, world without end", we
exit the concept of TIME.
"I AM the Alpha and the Omega," says the Lord
God, "who is, and who was, and who is to come,
But what is TIME?
We consult watches, clocks, to see what time it is,
the pendulum of a clock, with it's regular motion
back and forth, due to it's sideways positioning and
the power of gravity, is the basic instrument for
the measure of timekeeping.
We can say that TIME is movement; earlier I did
this and that, and now I do something else.
In contrast; God is immobile, He is Still.
He is the same today as yesterday, and as He will
He can not change, that is His most obvious

they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ Then what shall I
God said to Moses,
“I am who I am. This is what you are to say to the
Israelites: ‘I am has sent me to you.’”
Exodus 3: 13-14
“Very truly I tell you,” Jesus answered, “before
Abraham was born, I AM!” At this, they picked
up stones to stone him, but Jesus hid himself,
slipping away from the temple grounds."
John 8: 58-59
"There are many more things that Jesus did. If all
of them were written down, I suppose that not even
the world itself would have space for the books
that would be written".
TIME is a concept, an idea, a constructed narrative.
I am not judging it as neither good nor bad, it is not
a criticism. We all have the experience sometimes
that TIME flies, TIME stood still, TIME was very
Outside TIME there is the TIMELESS;
THE I AM.
