A day to God is a thousand years
Reference to the Bible verses:
“But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.” (2 Peter 3:8)
This hook was also explained by RZA himself on his facebook.
To expound upon it, the first line was from a biblical quote that stated such a idea as to compare God’s time to man’s time. 1000 being an arbitrary number. Those who bare witness to God knows of his infinite existence. Those who don’t may still see the scientific and psychological idea of the statement through the law of correspondence. Thus a man is able in single day to present a idea that will last a thousand years or take a thousand years to materialize yet to him it all occurred in a single day.
