Will Time Exist in Heaven?

by | May 24, 2022 | Bible Study

There is a common misconception that time itself is done away with once we are in heaven. The reason many think this is because God is outside of the time domain. But are we? The Bible contains many verses that indicate there will be the passing of time for those in heaven. However, the burden of time will no longer exist. The pressure we now feel to hurry or wait will be removed.

Some say that time is actually an enemy, and is the result of the fall of man in the Garden of Eden. This is not so. Time existed before the fall. Remember when God created the earth before there was sin? He established evening and morning, which were the first day, and then the second day, and so on for those six days (see Gen. 1).

There is also the period of time coming on the earth after the Tribulation. It is called the Millennium. According to the Bible, it is a thousand-year period of time that has been determined by God. This is when Christ will reign on the earth (read Rev. 20:3). It will be precisely 1,000 years in duration.

Did you know that time will also exist for those in hell? Revelation 14 states, “The smoke of their torment will ascend forever and ever. They have no rest day or night” (Rev. 14:11a). This is a reference to the awareness of days and nights. There are additional verses that say the same.

Here on the earth, we are all burdened with the pressure of not having enough time. It is like a weight on our shoulders, something we are always aware of. In heaven, though, there will be no shortage of time, as we will be living in eternity. The negative aspects of time will no longer exist. We will be redeemed from its pressure and burden. Time will be only a commodity that we will never exhaust. {eoa}
