I’ve just read a very interesting article that can be found at a link at the bottom of this post in which scientists erased TIME!

That’s right some scientists at Cornell University actually erased time for 40 Trillionths of a second!

If you think that sounds like a short amount of time it is- it is an incredibly fractional amount of time. However there is one person who can hide time if you will for an even shorter period, and He promised to do that for His Bride. This person is God and that promise is known as the Rapture (Greek: Harpazo) which means to be snatched out by force. The event is described in fantastic detail in 1st Thessalonians 4:13-18– but there’s another passage that discusses just how FAST this Rapture is going to take.

1st Corinthians 15:51-53

51 Behold! I tell you a mystery.  We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed.
53 For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and w this mortal body must put on immortality.

What exactly is the Twinkling of an eye? How fast is that?

Vincent’s Word Studies puts it this way:

Moment (ἀτόμῳ)

Only here in the New Testament. Atomos, from ἀ not and τέμνω to cut, whence our atom. An undivided point of time. The same idea of indivisibility appears in ἀκαρής (not in the New Testament), from ἀ not and κείρω to shear; primarily of hair too short to be cut, and often used in classical Greek of time, as in the phrase ἐν ἀκαρεῖ χρονοῦ in a moment of time.

Twinkling (ῥιπῇ)

Only here in the New Testament. Originally the swing or force with which a thing is thrown; a stroke or beat. Used in the classics of the rush of a storm, the flapping of wings; the buzz of a gnat; the quivering of a harpstring; the twinkling of the stars. Generally of any rapid movement, as of the feet in running, or the quick darting of a fish.

And Chuck Missler in his book Learn the Bible in 24 Hours puts it this way:

“What is the “twinkling of an eye”? (It’s not a blink.) I suspect that it’s about 10-43 seconds, which is the smallest quantum of time possible. In that instant we are going to be transformed. We shall be incorruptible.”

Just how fast is 10-43 seconds…

10-43 = 0.0000000000000000000000000000000000000000001 seconds

Which just goes to show that 40 trillionths of a second is actually a lot slower than it sounds.

I’m looking forward to when God calls for our departure, and don’t forget it could happen at anytime.

In Christ,

Ross
