We are living in an era when men are specializing in demanding God to do things. Many programs of man-made religion are premised on the theory that spiritual life can be received by "following these simple rules," or by "reading this book," or by "coming to this meeting." Such mortal advice gratifies the flesh but eventually ends in frustration because, in the spiritual life, the Father reserves the right to determine the schooling and the time of graduation. Thus, the time element has great significance. Carnal people always resist God's time element because they want to get eternity and it's questions settled so they can enjoy earthly life, Gal. 4:1-2. God is not just interested in His sons settling down to earthly living. A babe might have a degree of such motivation, but the Father will fill the lacking knowledge with Grace. A son will be expected to be less earthly, and God will give less grace. Mature believers those who have crucified the flesh and brought it's motivations under subjection to the spiritual man will know they are pilgrims, strangers and sojourners on this earth. No spiritual believer will question the time element of God's dealing in his life because he does not analyze time according to the earthly.
