Is Time Moving Faster

Interpret Matthew 24:22. Could this be why time now seems to be going by faster and faster? Can you believe it has already been 5 years since 9/11? That we are already in the 8th month of this year?

Regarding Matthew 24:22, God's message means that during the END times things will be so bad, and so troublesome, that if He did not cut short the time then NO man would survive to enjoy Paradise earth. Paradise earth follows the end times. God will NOT destroy His earth, but He will give us the opportunity to 'Get it right this time' WITHOUT Satan's influence. Satan's earthy reign is then over for 1000 years,giving man the chance to live rightious again. God is giving us a new beginning without Satan's influence. Believe this!

Eric: The Latin term is "tempest fugit" or "time flees." Yes, I think time is accelerating, and the speed of light is slowing as well.

I don't think so, and everyone wants to know when Jesus is coming back. He is coming, but, we should not worry about it, just be ready for Him. People now adays stays pretty busy and this too will cause time to fly.

The ancients had many a saying for the feeling of lost time . Especially when it's do to positive living. Tempest Fugeot!!( is my favorite) Especially when things are good. In general Life is good. Therefore it will generally seem shorter as we come closer to our mortality. The divine wisdom is in the experience of living a "Golden Example". Which "NO MAN" is capable of emulating purely.
At least not yet.

time is flying by so fast it makes one dizzy. There is no time to do anything anymore.

Hi Frank, to be "frank" Frank is a pretty common name, isn't it? :D I'm sure the other Frank wasn't trying to be rude--frankly! :D

Whoever posted using my name should show enough courtesy to use their own name.
Not very Christ-like!

Days cut short: Some hold that this statement means that the distress will be of such intensity that, if allowed to continue, it would destroy everyone. Or it could mean the cutting short of a previously determined time period.

I have found that the older I get, the faster time seems to goes by. Especially when I had just seemed to fly by! Seems like just a week ago my kids were little, now they're all grown up!

To whom it is that's addressing Melissa, I understand what she's saying but what are you saying, it makes no sence and can you back it up biblically? This worn out cop out about time seems to be moving faster because of age needs to be reexamined.
---nicole on 11/27/07

Yes, infact the Lord asked me if i noticed just today that time is moving quite fast, and the seasons are moving rapdily. its as the clouds and atmosphere seem to collide . you know there's war in the heavingly's and because the enemy and his demons strive to cause delays in the assignments of God's angels all the words, blessings, and knowledge God has disbursed to the saints/believers to defeat and exspose the enemy on every side, it like it causes things to be effected here on earth

Melissa: Jesus' phrase in Mt. 24:22 of days being cut short is a simple idiom meaning God set the worst part of the Tribulation period to only a few years or more, BECAUSE all of mankind (including those who will be saved then; the 'elect') literally could never survive any longer! As others pointed out, OUR own personal PERCEPTIONS of how time is passing right now are just that, no more.
---danie9374 on 9/7/06

Yes, I personally believe time is moving faster. Not as much day by day but moving faster by weeks which lead to months and years.
---Frank on 8/24/06

greetings,for melissa,do not many live in fear of a coming tribulation?if we were to live for two hundred years our tribulation would is good that we only have to live about one hundred years.i have not heard or read of any previous age that we may call a non tribulation age.--time is slowing the earth slows its rotation the months will become longer.many ages will pass to see it .the earths gravity pull on the moon will become greater also

I notice that no one gave their interpretation of Matthew 24:22. What do you think it means?
---melissa on 8/18/06

Time is still the same 24/7. We're just getting older and running out of time. That's why it seems to be going so fast.

Being on the far side of 40 (I won't say how far! :-) ) I think that time just seems to go faster the older you are.
---Jack on 8/15/06

Melissa, what point are you really trying to make dear. The passing of time is associated with you chronological age and experience. A small child anticipating the arrival of his/her birth day seems like for ever to them. But if you are gerryatric it is just a another one of many that you have experienced.

Quit dwelling on the subject; Christ will come when the God want him to and not until them and speculation to the occurrence of the event is useless. Just be prepared every day.
