Time Travel and Traveling in the Spirit
Time travel has been the subject of some of the most memorable movies in history. There’s just something about it that captivates our imagination. But is time travel really possible?
Not long ago, my wife had a dream where she and I were traveling in time to alter the outcomes of certain events. Until she had this dream, I’d not given much thought to time travel, but today it seems like a much more realistic possibility.
Albert Einstein observed that we don’t really understand what time is and how it functions. He once wrote:
“The distinction between past, present, and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.”
You might be wondering in what way are the past, present, and future are “illusions?” Let’s take a closer look at the concept we refer to as time.
The physical universe has the three spatial dimensions of length, width, and height, plus a fourth dimension of time. Time itself is a dimension or a component part of the physical universe. It is not a part of the spiritual one. (I will not discuss it in detail here as it may only cause more confusion, but one reliable source that I read has stated that the spiritual world does have a concept that is analogous to time, but that it functions differently.)
The spiritual universe is of a higher dimension than the physical universe. Any universe of a lower dimension has less ability to perceive the details of a universe of a higher dimension. The reverse is also true. A universe of higher dimension can perceive with greater clarity, a lower one.
When we view things in the physical universe from the spiritual one, we have greater access to the information contained by its dimensions, including the dimension of time. We can see the events that happen in the dimension of time at a glance. We could view all the events of our life (or the life of someone else) as if we were looking at them on a calendar. We could see the events of history that happened before we were born as if we were witnessing them firsthand.
Some might object to this idea because it almost seems as if it would make us omniscient and we know that only God is omniscient. Omniscience is having a complete knowledge of all the things contained in all the dimensions of all universes without the smallest detail being omitted from one’s awareness. In contrast, what we’re talking about with respect to seeing events in time is having a limited knowledge of the events in one dimension of one of the universes (the physical one) pertaining to one individual. That is a far cry from being omniscient.
Some may wonder what purpose God might have for time travel. Allow me to illustrate one (but not the only) purpose.
Imagine for a moment you were praying and the Holy Spirit showed you some of the atrocities that were done to Jews in prison camps during World War II. Now imagine as you continued praying, you were shown detailed information about the emotional trauma these people suffered. As you pray, you ask the Lord what He wants you to do with the information and you receive the impression that He wants you to pray for healing of emotional trauma for both the victims and their captors. Is it unreasonable to think that God might show you in eternity something He wants to have changed in the realm of time and ask you to pray that His will would be done?
We are only aware of and only affected by the dimension of time when we’re operating in the physical universe. Once we leave the physical universe, the dimension of time still exists, but it no longer has power over us. Time travel then is merely an issue of which universe we’re operating in. If we happen to be operating in the physical one, then time has its way with us. But when we’re operating in the spiritual one, time loses its control over us. When we travel in the spirit, whether in a dream, by translation, translocation, or in a trance, we’re operating outside the dimension of time.
Let me illustrate what it looks like to gain access to information that pertains to the future.
One night I had a dream where I saw the way God answered the prayers of my friends ten and even fifteen years in the future. How did I get access to this information? I simply entered the spiritual world and it became available to me.
And how exactly did I enter the spiritual world?
The “dream” that I had, came the night I spoke a portal into existence while laying on my bed in a hotel room. (I did this after the Holy Spirit suggested it to me.) But merely speaking the portal into existence wasn’t enough. I had to enter the spiritual world through it to receive the information God wanted me to have. So after the portal was created, I went through it into the spiritual world. That’s when I was able to perceive the way my friend’s prayers were answered in the future. (Please don’t think of this as a formula to be replicated. God may use something like this with you, but He could just as easily use one of a hundred different methods.)
