Is your future already decided? New theory of time suggests that the past, present AND future co-exist in the universe

Prophecy Sign:  Timeless eternity with Jesus Christ

So are scientists finally now coming to the realization that time is not linear and may in fact exist at all points at all times?  This of course is what the God of the universe has said all along....that he exists outside of time, (looks down on all time), and thus knows the beginning from the end. That is why only God Almighty can make prophecies of things to come that are always 100% fulfilled.

This also explains the conundrum between pre-destination and free will;  God is fully aware of the future and knows those that will make up his future Kingdom, but it is still the free-will of each person to make that decision.   This future kingdom will exist in another dimension, (the eternal state), where time will not at all be like that which we comprehend today.

By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God's command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible. Hebrews 11:3 NIV

Who has done this and carried it through, calling forth the generations from the beginning? I, the LORD--with the first of them and with the last--I am he." Isaiah 41:4 NIV

"Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. Revelation 22:12-13 NIV

Is your future already decided? New theory of time suggests that the past, present AND future co-exist in the universe
The old adage that 'time is like a river', suggesting that we move through it like a ship sailing on water, may be wrong. A new theory claims that time does not move forward, but rather, everything in time is ever-present. According to the theory, if we were to ‘look down’ upon the universe, we would see time spread out in all directions, just as we see space at the moment. The intriguing theory was put forward by Dr Bradford Skow, an associated professor of philosophy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). In his new book, Objective Becoming, he examines some of the theories that have been postulated to explain time.  When you ask people, “Tell me about the passage of time,” they usually make a metaphor,’ he said.  ‘They say time flows like a river, or we move through time like a ship sailing through the sea.’ Another theory states that the present is a ‘spotlight’ that moves from the past to the future, with us being located in the spotlight as it moves forward. Dr Skow, however, said he ‘wouldn’t want to believe in that unless I saw good arguments for it.’ Rather, he favours a theory known as the ‘block universe’, which states that the past, present and future already exist.

Big Bang May Have Never Happened, Suggests New Theory
The Big Bang never happened and our universe may have no beginning and no end, suggests a new theory by physicists, including one of Indian-origin. The theory applies quantum correction terms to complement Einstein's theory of general relativity and may also account for dark matter and dark energy.

Ahmed Farag Ali at Benha University and the Zewail City of Science and Technology, in Egypt and coauthor Saurya Das at the University of Lethbridge in Canada, have shown that the Big Bang singularity can be resolved by their new model in which the universe has no beginning and no end.

  1. Great post! This is fascinating--and you are 100 percent correct in your assessment. This is the point that is lost on Calvinists (and I've gone a few rounds with some of the hardest-nosed of the bunch). This is the only way to reconcile God's sovereignty with man's free will; but since it is beyond the grasp of our fleshly peabrains, they cling to the old "potter/clay" and "His ways are higher than our ways" defenses, neither of which apply to individual salvation and do nothing to prove their case.
