What does the end of the age of the gentiles really mean?
What was Paul trying to say with such a small statement? What possibly can this mean?
The more I ponder this apostolic statement, the more I am beginning to see things that I find very disturbing.
What is happening today in the name of the Christian faith is very confusing.
Is the church of toady already living in an apostate condition.
The stuff that is going on in the name of Christ is very disturbing, where is the sense and weightiness of the apostolic presence of God.
A wonderful and horrible thing is committed in the land; The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in the end thereof? Jeremiah 5,30-31
Are we ripe today an event of such a kind, which could possibly stagger all of our present categories, on what we think God is really doing?
Could we be living in a time were God is about to do something equivalent to what happened two thousand years ago, with the Jewish nation?
Could we be witnessing today the end of the age of the gentiles?
We do know that this age does not end up in a blaze of glory, it ends up in the great apostasy, it ends in the great falling away, it ends with the revealing of the man of sin who sits in the temple of God, portraying himself as God.
The picture that is given to us in the New Testament is not a very pleasant one.
Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.
1 John 4:1
Many that make up the church today believe that this age will end in great glory for the church?
Will it really? Were does it say in the New Testament that this will happen? I can’t find it.
For false Christ’s and false prophets will arise and perform signs and wonders, to lead astray, if possible, the elect. Mark 13:22
But the picture that the church of today has is very different to the one of the bible.
And the Lord said to me: “The prophets are prophesying lies in my name. I did not send them, nor did I command them or speak to them. They are prophesying to you a lying vision, worthless divination, and the deceit of their own minds. Jeremiah 14:14
Have you ever pondered this statement when Paul speaks of a strong delusion being sent from God? Why would God do something like this?
Paul says because they refused to believe what was true.
This statement by Paul should sober one in his faith.
For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness. 2 Thessalians 7-12
God is so jealous about his truth that if we refuse it, he sends something false into our lives, which causes us to believe a lie.
So how does the Church of this age come to these conclusions that is so prevalent today in main stream Christianity?
The only way one can do this is to go back into the Old Testament; there we find all the things that the church is saying.
They are there, but do they truly and only apply to the gentile church?
I believe yes, and no, they do apply to us, but they only apply when Israel the chosen nation, not chosen because they deserve this. Chosen only because of Gods election of grace, are brought back from the dead in, which is presently their state as a people.
And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led captive into all the nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled. Luke 21:24
If the casting away of them be riches for the gentiles, what will it be for the gentiles! When they are reinstated into the covenant tree?
For I don’t desire you to be ignorant, brothers, of this mystery, so that you won’t be wise in your own conceits, that a partial hardening has happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in, Romans 11:25
What I am trying to say is that the prophetic promises, which are given, are given only to the Church with a restored Israel.
I ask then, did they stumble that they might fall? May it never be! But by their fall salvation has come to the Gentiles, to provoke them to jealousy. Now if their fall is the riches of the world, and their loss the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fullness? For I speak to you who are Gentiles. Since then as I am an apostle to Gentiles, I glorify my ministry; if by any means I may provoke to jealousy those who are my flesh, and may save some of them. For if the rejection of them is the reconciling of the world, what would their acceptance be, but life from the dead? Romans 11, 11-16
Once natural Israel is reinstated under their Messiah, then and only then can we hope for these events?
Try all that we may to claim this; it is not for us to claim without a restored people called Israel.
I believe this is one of the great delusions in the Christian faith today; it is all based in a presumptive view of scripture.
I truly do believe that we are about to witness unbelievable events in this hour, but one has to truly be very suspicious were these events come from.
Some of the preliminary stuff that I have witnessed so far has been very disturbing to me.
I believe we are entered this transitional pivot point in the history of Gods goings, in which he is returning once again, as has been prophesied in scriptures, back to his chosen Nation, who is called Israel.
Natural Israel holds the keys to the messianic promises, which are ours also, but only with a restored Nation.
We Gentiles will also be partakes with them, because of our union with their God.
The church is in subjection to this historic event of all events.
Our destiny awaits their reinstatement; we will not be complete without them.
This is as biblical as biblical can be, to me it can’t be any clearer than it is, the problem is we need to be deprogrammed from all the layers of misinterpretation that has infected the church of Christ.
