A Time Machine

A Time Machine! NOT a good idea!

If it were possible… if you could have a TIME MACHINE…
Just think of all the ‘good’ you could do!

…All the lives you could SAVE!

6,000,000 Jews come to mind….

Just think, if you had a TIME MACHINE, you could go back and ELIMINATE HITLER before He destroyed all those people!!!!

That would, of course, SAVE many times more than just 6,000,000 Jews, it would be saving Millions more of their descendants as well.

Just think, if you had a TIME MACHINE, you could go back and WARN the American people not to be in the TWIN TOWERS!!!!! Thousands more would be saved!!

On the surface, it probably sounds like a good idea, but, is it?

You’ve all heard the story of the man who was floating along in a FLOOD, praying for God to SAVE him… a boat came by and tried to get him to climb in, and he said, “No, God will save me”…. So, He kept on praying and later, another boat came near and tried to pull him in, but, he refused, saying “No, God will save me”… Later, a RESCUE Helicopter swooped down and tried to get him to hang on to rope and he would not, crying all the louder, “No, God will save me”…. as I said, you know the story, the man finally DROWN and (according to the Story) he arrived in heaven and went straight up to God and asked Him,, ‘God, I prayed and prayed and prayed… why did you not save me?’
God’s reply, “I sent you two boats and a helicopter…”

This man wanted to be rescued!! He wanted to be saved…
With your TIME MACHINE, you could have saved him!

Who else would you rescue??

That same night, after Christ and His disciples had partaken of the PASSOVER, and had eaten of that bread, and drunk that wine…. after Christ had washed their feet…. Jesus went out into the Garden, to pray.

Luk 22:39 Coming out, He went to the Mount of Olives, as He was accustomed, and His disciples also followed Him.
Luk 22:41 And He was withdrawn from them about a stone’s throw, and He knelt down and prayed,
Luk 22:42 saying, “Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.”
Luk 22:43 Then an angel appeared to Him from heaven, strengthening Him.
Luk 22:44 And being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground.

The Lord was in agony! He was not yet arrested, not yet abused, not yet CRUCIFIED… and yet, He was in agony! He was praying for the Father to ‘take this cup away’…. He was praying for the Father to SAVE Him from the coming hours of torture and abuse… to RESCUE Him from the horrible beating He was about to endure… from the shameful horrendous, DEATH the He was facing!

Would you??? If you had a TIME MACHINE, would you go back and RESCUE Jesus?? Just think, a small team with automatic weapons… it would be EASY to overcome that crowd… it would be EASY to defeat even a squad of Roman Soldiers if need be… Would you go back and STOP the abuse…. Stop the beatings…. STOP the CRUCIFIXION???? Would you RESCUE Jesus and take Him and His disciples to a SAFE location??

Just think, RESCUING this ONE JEW, would be more significant than rescuing those millions later!!!

Would You?

Pro_14:12 There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.

I’ll tell you now, it might look like an opportunity to DO GOOD, but, having a TIME MACHINE would NOT be a good idea!!!

Because, as we all know from watching hundreds of movies on Time Travel, you can’t CHANGE the PAST, without out CHANGING the FUTURE!

For the plan of God to succeed, Jesus had to DIE… This UNIQUE EVENT, at this particular time in history, HAD to happen!!!

If you and your TIME MACHINE had intervened and prevented that DEATH, then there would be NO SACRIFICE for SIN! There would be NO SAVIOUR, and NO OPPORTUNITY for Eternal Life!!!

I’m glad we don’t have TIME MACHINES… They are NOT a good idea!!
