Leap Second Day

We all have heard of Leap Year Day, where we have an extra day each year. But have you ever heard of Leap Second Day?

During a leap second we leap forward one second into time! So we have one extra second in that day. There is 86,400 in a normal day.

Leap Second Day

Leap Second Day

June 30, 2015 is known as Leap Second Day. The last one occurred June 30, 2012.

It will either occur on June 30 or a December 31 based on a mathematical equation.

We do a Leap Second supposedly to help with time and the Earth’s rotation.

The practice of advancing one second started in 1972. To help keep time adjusted accurately to the atomic time. This practice is used with the UTC, which is where most international time is kept.

No further dates set yet, when a new date is set, I will update this blog post.

Now let’s look at time in the Bible. The word “time” is used 710 times in the NKJV Bible according to Bible Gateway.

God we know knows no time. He has always existed and always will exist.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. John 1:1-5

There even is a time for everything. Read Ecclesiastes 3:1-8. Check out verse 11, below. We all have eternity with God. But we must accept His Son for that eternity.

He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also He has put eternity in their hearts, except that no one can find out the work that God does from beginning to end. Ecclesiastes 3:11

Check out this verse below. It shows that God doesn’t really see time. This just can show that God is eternal.

But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 2 Peter 3:8
