Part 2 of 3:
A World Gone Mad
THE FACT IS THAT THIS IS A WORLD GONE MAD!
Yet, Biblically, we should not be surprised. This day has been perfectly prophesied and described in the pages of our Bible.
The fact is that “the times of the Gentiles” (Luke 21:24) in this
age is nearly concluded. The Lord is about to snatch away (Rapture) His own – “the church” which is “the body of Christ.” Gentile Church
The Lord will then turn His attention back again to fulfilling ALL prophecy concerning the Nation Israel. What we see is the prophesied course of the age. “THE FULNESS OF THE GENTILES” has nearly now “COME IN,” after which the Lord will then remove the “blindness” from
“For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, … that BLINDNESS IN PART IS (has) HAPPENED TO ISRAEL, UNTIL THE FULNESS OF THE GENTILES BE COME IN.’ (Romans 11:25)
You know the world has gone mad so you may wonder… What I Can Do To Change The World?
The answer is, according to Bible prophecy — very little. To some this may sound defeatist. The fact is that no prayer, effort, or vows of man will alter the course of God’s eternal plan toward the consummation of the ages, which Paul calls “THE FULNESS OF TIMES” (see below).
“Having made known unto us the mystery of his (The Lord’s) will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: 10 That IN THE DISPENSATION OF “THE FULNESS OF TIMES” HE MIGHT GATHER TOGETHER IN ONE ALL THINGS IN CHRIST, BOTH WHICH ARE IN HEAVEN, AND WHICH ARE ON EARTH; EVEN IN HIM” (Ephesians 1:9-10)
The Lord has been, still is, and will ultimately “gather” a concluding people to Himself. In “THE FULNESS OF TIMES” Christ will ultimately gather His own. Soon after its rapture, the church will have already taken its place in “heaven,” wherein we have “our citizenship” (Philippians 3:20). Christ will rule “the heaven” through “the church, which is His body.” Having then overthrown Lucifer (Rev 12:9) and his corrupt “principalities and powers” (Eph 6:12) who currently rule the earth, Christ will then return to take up rule on “the earth” through
. Thus, just as the Lord promised Abraham, Christ will “gather” Israel “out of all nations” (Deut 30:3) to ultimately rule and “bless all the families of the earth” (Gen 28:14). Israel
In the Bible, “the apostle to the gentiles,” Paul, clearly indicates that “in the last days,” before Jesus’ return, a number of systemic shifts will occur to remove the biblical worldview from the overall culture, just as we see before our very eyes today. Now, knowing the course of His eternal plan, we recognize the evil we see today; sin in man is fully blossoming and exposed, as Satan, the “prince” of this world, knows his time is now short.
“Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:” (Ephesians 2:2)
