'When Time Shall Be No More' offers for the first time an in-depth look at the subtle, pervasive ways in which prophecy belief shapes contemporary American thought and culture. About the Author Paul Boyer was Merle Curti Professor of History at the University of Wisconsin– by: Bible Book List × Unlock the NIV and those things that be in it, that time shall no more be. YLT. and did swear in Him who doth live to the ages of the ages, who did create the heaven and the things in it, and the land and the things in it, and the sea and the things in it -- that time shall not be yet. This may be rendered: (1) Time (a finite terminable period, as opposed to eternity) shall no longer exist, but eternity shall be entered upon. (2) There shall be no more time, in the sense of “there shall be no longer any delay” in the infliction of the last judgment, set forth under the seventh trumpet. That there shall be no more a time - But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, the mystery of God shall be fulfilled: that is, a time, a chronos, shall not expire before that mystery is fulfilled. A chronos ( years) will nearly pass before then, but not quite.

When Time Shall Be No More offers for the first time an in-depth look at the subtle, pervasive ways in which prophecy belief shapes contemporary American thought and culture. Belief in prophecy dates back to antiquity, and there Paul Boyer begins, seeking out the origins of this particular brand of faith in early Jewish and Christian. And time will be no more as we read in Revelation “And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:”. Time Shall Be No More Thousands of years before modern scholarship began to understand some marvelous truth, the Word of God had already declared it. These declarations include man’s most sophisticated discoveries and many of their very futuristic speculations. The concept of time will be just one more example. Revelation And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever That is, by the living God, who is the true God: and is so described to distinguish him from idol gods, who have no life nor breath in them; and to assert the excellency and perfection of his nature, who has life in himself originally, and independently, is the fountain of life to all creatures living, and who are supported in.

The Angel and the Little Book (Rev ) The Appearance of the Angel (a) So when the angel of Revelation says “time shall be no more” he means that once the seventh trumpet is sounded, this time of allowing Satan and rebellion to continue, will be over; God will act swiftly now to establish His rule of righteousness on. The product of a four-year immersion in the literature and culture of prophecy belief, "When Time Shall Be No More" serves as a pathbreaking guide to this vast terra incognita of contemporary American popular thought-a thorough and thoroughly fascinating index to its sources, its 5/5(1).   When Time Shall Be No More Tomorrow will be two years since my life was changed forever, days since my heart was shattered, 17, hours since Dominic’s accident. I never dreaded time the way I do now.   When Time Shall Be No More offers for the first time an in-depth look at the subtle, pervasive ways in which prophecy belief shapes contemporary American thought and culture.
