Threescore - And - Ten - Poem by Dr. Antony Theodore

'Time' clearly
does not relate
to God and man
in the same way.

The psalmist declares
in describing God:

'From everlasting
to everlasting,
you are God' (Psa.90: 2 of the Holy Bible) .

Yet, in the same context,
of man it is said:
'The days of our years
are threescore
years and ten'(v.10) .

Topic(s) of this poem: time, god, human being

    People are inclined to think that in Spirit never ending time means time without end, but it means timelessness. There is no time in Spirit, it exists only in the human world. I guess the Psalmist was referring to a lifetime of 70 years on earth. To reach 70 years back then would be a major miracle, today it is quite normal. Wonderful insightful write which I thank you for sharing, Tony... (Report)Reply
