Biblical Concept: The linear aspect of God
God’s Counsel in eternity past suggests a linear aspect to God. As with any volitional being, the process of thinking is linear—humans live in an approximate three second window of thought, for example. Omniscient but linear might be an important way to understand God’s Omniscience? Another way to say it is: The God of the Bible exists in at least 14 different dimensions and one of the dimensions includes four dimensional linear reality.
The 6 days of creation display God’s linear aspect. God enjoyed each step of the creative process. It was all good: Genesis 1:31 And God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day. Note God saw good in Genesis 1:4,10,12,18,21, and 25.
Genesis 2:9, And out of the ground the LORD God caused to grow every tree that is pleasing to the sight and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
Genesis 2:15, Then the LORD God took the man and put him into the garden of Eden to cultivate it and keep it.
Genesis 2:19, And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the sky, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them; and whatever the man called a living creature, that was its name.
Genesis 5:22-24 22 Then Enoch walked with God three hundred years after he became the father of Methuselah, and he had other sons and daughters. 23 So all the days of Enoch were three hundred and sixty-five years. 24 And Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him.
Genesis 6:5-7 5 Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. 6 And the LORD was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart. 7 And the LORD said, "I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, from man to animals to creeping things and to birds of the sky; for I am sorry that I have made them." (Instead of a flaw in God’s omniscience / plan / thinking, the linear reality aspect of God is on display.)
Psalm 37:23b. If “He” is God, then: “He delights in his way.”
