This is series from Dr. Aikens entitled “Revelatory Words and Concepts” These revelatory nuggets are curated by Jane Babich from Bootcamp Teachings and Podcasts. These concepts are rooted in Apostle Aikens’s heart toward equipping ministries and ministers for the work of the end times. You can also listen to the 2-minute podcast by clicking here.
Kairos is one of the Greek words for “times”; as always existed, even prehistorically, as the infinity operating as God created “all” in the beginning. It also signifies set, appointed, proper occasions as times we “see” as convenient or inconvenient opportunities even due season. And remember, God gives us the power to know the times through the Holy Spirit.
1 Corinthians 2:9-16 (KJV)
But as it is written, eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? Even so, the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receiveth, not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? but we have the mind of Christ.
Kairos strategically will make time, in no time, slipping into position as, but God said. It squeezes itself in between fewer opportunities that “Chronos” governs, which counts down and pressuring us to perform.
The word “Chronos” (you probably recognize this one as the root for the English words “chronological” and “chronicle”) refers to measured, ticking, quantitative time. Chronos is the forward propelling time that we measure with clocks, on watches, and by the evolutionary phases of the moon. But time does not end there.
Kairos is thought of as spiritually; it is an opportunity and favor that God assists us in discerning as a moment of grace. And all this Kairos time is in God’s power.
2 Corinthians 6:1-2 (KJV)
We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain. (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)
We all have experienced times in life that we hear that voice that gives us all the reasons why “time is up.” No time is left for answered prayers or direction during the crisis, but those that are His come to know that it is not over until God says it is over. Kairos interrupts those voices and says, “not so.” God will find a way. He will squeeze into time, just as Isaiah 43:19 encourages us to look for God’s time to appear.
Kairos is quantitatively appointed times that exist for short bursts, while’s, or even infinitely. Regardless, it holds qualitative unfolding of all He is purposed, prepared, and has worked together for us to go forth and walk out. God’s kairos times for us moves us to do as we see in Micah 6:8.
Micah 6:8 (KJV)
He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?
All things within kairos are ordered and remain laid up as He establishes, to wait for His release. Our “but God” as kairos comes to us as great but effectual doors that the keys of David are applied to. Thus, no man opens or shuts them but God, which is all good and; Always right on “time.”
