The Foundation of the World

Eye of God NebulaAll this Jesus said to the crowds in parables; indeed he said nothing to them without a parable. This was to fulfil what was spoken by the prophet:  “I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter what has been hidden since the foundation of the world.” Matt. 13:34-35

Stuck right in the middle of the Kingdom Parables is this small explanation of why they were necessary. The quote is from the second verse of Psalms 78. The whole Psalm is about the spiritual condition of God’s people. At the end it, David as type of Messiah bring this unruly flock to order. But till that time comes we are rebellious, and as a consequence the kingdom is corrupt. There are lots of things in the Bible are from the foundation of the Universe [Eph. 1:4; Heb. 4:3; Heb. 9:26; 1 Pet. 1:20; Rev. 13:8; Rev. 17:8 ]. Everything that was to happen had happened before time became a necessary thing.  We mere humans are stuck in time. We measure the sequence of events in our lives by the speed of the celestial orbs that move through our sky.  But in reality time is an allusion, ever changing to your position in the Universe. As long as we are still on earth it works just fine for our finite sequential minds. But our Creator is not so limited.  He sees and experiences all time and space at the same time. Because He is our Immutable Creator.
