With God there is no time element. There is no clock in heaven, only eternity. As God views His people from the standpoint of eternity, He sees them all as sheaves full of life and as the sun, moon, and stars full of light.
Although God’s people are positioned in heaven as the sun, the moon, and the stars, they are living on earth as sheaves (Philippians 3:20; 2:15), for sheaves grow in the field. Today we are the heavenly people living on earth.
We are God’s people. …have an eternal view, not the view from the earth….If you use the “divine telescope” to see through time, you will behold the New Jerusalem where there is nothing but sheaves and stars. In the New Jerusalem there are no “gophers” or “scorpions.” There, everything is full of life and light. When we consider Joseph’s dreams, we realize that no human mind could have conceived the book of Genesis. Only God could have caused Joseph to have these dreams.
