sermon: Pentecost and Time
Living in Sync With God
Richard T. Ritenbaugh
Given 31-May-20; Sermon #1547PM; 75 minutes
Because of our "time-bound" state, constraining us to a relatively narrow window of opportunity (around 70 years) to accomplish our life's purpose, unless we sync with God's timetable, we are squandering our God-given time to become members of His family. Ecclesiastes 3:1, by indicating that God has placed eternity in our hearts and that He has melded time, beauty, and perfection into one, emphasizes that He times everything perfectly and beautifully, including allotting His called-out ones sufficient time to accomplish His purposes. Keeping the Day of Pentecost requires that we count fifty days, which, according to the day-for-a-year principle, represents roughly the number of years God gives us for sanctification. To help His emerging first-fruits, God has inserted His moedim (or meeting times) into their lives, holy time essential for developing a relationship with Him. Had Noah not walked in lock step with God's instructions, human life on earth would have come to an end with the Flood. Like Noah, God's called-out ones must consider getting and keeping in sync with God a matter of the highest priority.
