Q: #13. Will there be time in Heaven?
By: Steve Shirley
A: It certainly does appear so to me. In response to this question, I will simply post some scriptures that I believe support my position.
*** Note: Keep in mind, some people see these verses on time as figurative and not to be taken literally.
(Rev 9:15) And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared FOR AN HOUR, AND A DAY, AND A MONTH, AND A YEAR, for to slay the third part of men.
(Rev 8:1) And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven ABOUT THE SPACE OF HALF AN HOUR.
(Rev 22:2) In the midst of the street of it, and of either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manners of fruits, AND YIELDED HER FRUIT EVERY MONTH:...
(Rev 6:10-11) and they cried with a loud voice, saying, HOW LONG, O LORD, HOLY AND TRUE, DOST THOU NOT JUDGE AND AVENGE OUR BLOOD ON THEM THAT DWELL ON THE EARTH? (11) And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, THAT THEY SHOULD REST YET FOR A LITTLE SEASON...
(Rev 7:15) Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him DAY AND NIGHT in his temple...
(Isa 66:22-23) For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, Shall remain before me, saith the Lord, So shall your seed and your name remain. (23) And it shall come to pass, that FROM ONE NEW MOON TO ANOTHER, AND FROM ONE SABBATH TO ANOTHER, Shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the Lord.

In addition, the Bible says that the Father has appointed a specific day and hour for Jesus to return (Mk 13:32)(Mt 24:36)(Acts 1:7)(1 Th 5:1-2).
