JOURNEY OUT OF TIME
Arthur C. Custance

A study of the interval between the death and the resurrection of the body.

 

Abstract
 
    For the Christian this journey through death ends in the "hope of glory", of being received into His presence forever. But exactly when does this happen? The Lord promised the penitent thief it would be that "very day" — immediately; but He told the disciples it would be at His Second Coming — after a delay. How can these two promises be reconciled?
    This study shows that both promises are true! It depends upon an understanding of the nature of time and how it differs from eternity, and also upon the nature of man and his constitution. With these concepts clearly in mind, the nature of the interval is discussed, and then a resolution is proposed that is truly exciting.
