Limited in Time and Space
By Linda C Dipman

  Do you ever wonder what it would be like to jump off a cliff and fly like a bird?  Wouldn't it be fun to
breath under water and explore the ocean.  No, I'm not talking about airplanes or submarines, I mean
exploring the world with this kind of freedom in the our human bodies of flesh and blood.  
  
  If I could choose, I would be impenetrable so nothing could ever hurt me.  I could walk through fire,
stand barefoot on the Artic ice, or stand in the middle of a gunfight.  Unfortunately, these things are
impossible, because this world has limits.  But why?     

  I unexpectedly received the answer to this question.  The night was calm and I peacefully slept
undisturbed.  My dreams were tranquil and in a moment a vision immerged from the Spirit of the
Almighty God.

  A massive rock stood prominently behind a tiny housing development built into a valley.  Many
smaller rocks were scattered uniformly throughout the landscape.

  I was standing on a path looking and wondering what this scene was all about.  Suddenly a kind
eyed middle aged man appeared and asked me about what I was seeing.

  I quietly said I did not understand and the man smiling at me stated that the rocks are limits.

  Immediately my dream changed and a light of understanding flooded my thoughts. God was the
prominent rock and from His throne in Heaven He oversees the world and all of it's vastness.   

  God created the world and everything in it and He has given it limits.  Limits written down before the
beginning of time.  Limits that require that we must believe in Jesus in order to win in the Great Game
of Life.  

  1Peter 2:1&2, "Rid yourselves, then, of all evil;  no more lying or hypocrisy or jealousy or insulting
language.  Be like newborn babies, always thirsty for the pure spiritual milk, so that by drinking it you
may grow up and be saved."

  We are placed in this world to do service for God.  In order to serve we must let go of this present
age.  We must gain wisdom from the suffering and persecution we face and allow these growing
experiences to make us stronger.

  No one has the ability to navigate this world separate from God.  We must hold onto the rock of
Jesus and allow Him to work in us.  

  1Peter 2:4-&5, "Come to the Lord, the living stone rejected by man as worthless but chosen by God
as valuable.  Come as living stones, and let yourselves be used in building the spiritual temple, where
you will serve as holy priests to offer spiritual and acceptable sacrifices to God through Jesus Christ."

  The tiny houses are people.  They have been given the message of salvation and have accepted
their calls.  They have taken their human temples and grown in knowledge from the limits God placed
in their lives through the experiences they have faced.

  Why did God give me this vision.  Many people do not understand why God does not show Himself
to the world.  They want a God that is concrete and not spiritual.  

  They want God to walk beside them in human form and not a God that is invisible.  They don't
understand that a human God has the same weaknesses as man.  

  God came as a man in Jesus Christ.  He walked beside people loving and healing them of all the
pain inflicted on them from Satan.  But as a human being Jesus was limited!

  When God is Spiritual He has no limits.  He can talk anytime He wants to His children on the earth.  
He can walk within them giving them supernatural strength and the ability to fight against Satan and
win this world for God.

  When Jesus walked this world He realized that the only way that God's children could win was
through the teaching of the Holy Spirit.  He called the Spirit the comforter, helper, and the counselor.

  John 16:5-8   "But now I am going to him who sent me, yet none of you asks me where I am going.  
And now that I have told you, your hearts are full of sadness.  But I am telling you the truth; it is better
for you that I go away, because if I do not go, the Helper will not come to you.  But if I do go away,
then I will send him to you.  And when he comes, he will prove to the people of the world that they are
wrong about sin and about what is right and about God's judgment."

  Because the church refuses to teach people more about the spiritual aspect of the world many
people have given up on faith in the unseen God.  They look at religion as a crutch for the weak
because they don't understand they we are in a world game.

  A Spirit has the ability to strengthen and help people in their individual fight against Satan.  If God
were just a man He could only help a few people at a time, but as a Spirit, He has the ability to help
billions at a time.

  John 16:9-11, "They are wrong about sin, because they do not believe in me; they are wrong about
what is right, because I am going to the Father and you will not see me anymore; and they are wrong
about judgment, because the ruler of this world has already been judged."

  My vision started with God showing me how important it is for people to put their faith in Jesus.  
Jesus is a solid rock who loves people and directs a person's life to the truth about this world.

  That is the reason He is called the Light of the world. He parts the darkness of evil placed here by
Satan and He teaches people the right path that leads to understanding the difference between good
and bad.

  Satan is a demon who goes throughout the world to devour people.  He has taken the world that
God created and destroyed it by using evil human beings who do his will.  These are people who are
so corrupted by the desires of this world that they will do whatever the devil demands.

  Because Satan is king of this world, he hides the good and replaces it with bad.  That is the reason
why our world is full of injustices.  Satan has multiple personalities and he will even back stab the very
people who do his will. His ultimate goal is to destroy all people in order to defeat Jesus from saving
the world.

  He uses the earths resources to destroy human life.  He does this though drought, floods,
earthquakes and all forms of disasters.  Drought produces poverty, floods breed diseases,
earthquakes destroy families and displace cities.

   When an evil god reigns, corruption builds evil governments and societies that place bad people in
control.  People who only care about money and not human life. The courts become corrupt and evil
people are allowed to murder, commit incest and perpetrate all forms of injustices on good people.

  Jesus, in human form, was limited in time and space according to the boundaries of the world, but
Jesus in Spirit form has the ability to aid his followers and win the fight against the evil god of this
world.  Jesus has the ability to take on the Spiritual realm and crush the demon forces of Satan.  

   This is the reason why our world has a limited time.  God will not lose the battle and He will not
allow His servants to be defeated.  God created all things including the devil and from the very
beginning of time He has known the outcome of the battle of the great world game of life.
