There are three main AGES or stages which scripture captures. At the end of each age God judges. The FIRST AGE: began with Adam in the garden and that age ended with God’s judgement, a flood that Noah prepared for. During the first age, a man’s lifetime was centuries. “But they deliberately forget that long ago by God’s word the heavens came into being and the earth was formed out of water and by water. By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed.” 2 Peter 3:5-6 Peter a fisherman inspired by the Spirit wrote “formed out of water”. The word of God as living and active water has both creative and destructive power. In John 6:63, Jesus said it is the Spirit that gives life. So, it is the Spirit of God using the word of God that produces life. THE SECOND AGE: Began from the flood and will last until the end of the soon to begin 7 years of tribulation.
During the 2nd age will the church of Jesus Christ be raptured before the great tribulation? “For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but sent them to hell, if He did not spare the ancient world when He brought the flood on its ungodly people but spared Noah; if He condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah; and if He rescued Lot, a righteous man… if this is so, then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials and to hold the unrighteous for punishment on the day of judgment.” 2 Peter 2:5 Hold tight to the faith you have in God’s word and His will for His righteous people. “For the Lord Himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. (The saints who died before us) After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds (raptured) to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage one another with these words.” 1 Thess 4:16:18
THE SECOND AGE: The second age ends when Jesus returns the second time to judge the nations. “I will gather all the nations to Jerusalem to fight against it; the city will be captured, the houses ransacked, and the women raped. Half of the city will go into exile, but the rest of the people will not be taken from the city. Then the Lord will go out and fight against those nations, as He fights on a day of battle. On that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem, and the Mount of Olives will be split in two from east to west, forming a great valley, with half of the mountain moving north and half moving south.” Zechariah 14:2-4 All the holy angels have the responsibility of separating the nations for judgement by the King of kings. “This is how it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come and separate the wicked from the righteous” Matthew 13:49 Our Father is faithful to His Word and He will judge the nations for how they treated the Jews. Jesus died on the cross for all sins and people who repent and accept Jesus as Lord are judged righteous by God. “Who gave Himself for our sins to rescue us from the present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father.” Galatians 1:4 When Jesus returns every knee will bow as He lights up the sky. “For the Son of Man in His day will be like the lightning, which flashes and lights up the sky from one end to the other.” Luke 17:24 Do we deserve His grace and mercy? https://youtu.be/pnnQFbkQs2o?t=87 GOG WAR, tribulation begins.
“As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient…Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath. But because of His great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages He might show the incomparable riches of His grace, expressed in His kindness to us in Christ Jesus.” Ephesians 2:1-7 As of 2021 the 2nd age has not yet ended. It has been roughly 4,500 years since its beginning. “Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man. People were eating, drinking, marrying and being given in marriage up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all.” During that great day the righteous are warned to not look back! “Whoever tries to keep their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life will preserve it. I tell you, on that night two people will be in one bed; one will be taken and the other left.” Luke 17:33 – Do not turn back to save a family member or a treasure, just let go of this age and move into the next! Our Father assures us that we will get a new body. “because when we are clothed, (in the righteousness of Christ) we will not be found naked. For while we are in this tent, we groan and are burdened, because we do not wish to be unclothed but to be clothed instead with our heavenly dwelling, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. Now the One who has fashioned us for this very purpose is God, who has given us the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.” 1 Corin 5:3-5 Our Father’s plan for us is glorious! “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to Himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And He has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making His appeal through us.” 1 Corinthians 5:17-20 Oh Lord lead me, guide me, keep me on Thy path. AMEN
Out of fear and respect for the Word of God, by faith we persevere to uphold His commands as we diligently watch the signs of the times. When Israel is the target to be destroyed, Jesus will return. In May of 2021 Israel is once again under attack as plans to rebuild the temple are under way. Within God’s context, before we are told about the angels separating the wicked Jesus told us “Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand. In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah: “‘You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving. For this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them.’ But blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear. For truly I tell you, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it.” Matthew 13:13 – A sign of His returning is when we witness people hearing but not understanding because their hearts are hardened and their eyes are closed to the truth. “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, He will sit on His glorious throne. All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the sheep on His right and the goats on His left. “Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by My Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you (the next age, the millennial age) since the creation of the world.” This judgement of nations occurs after the tribulation. All those nations who treated Jews well are sheep nations that go into the millennial age. Jesus, the King of kings judged all nations who treated Jews badly as goat nations. “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of Mine, you did for Me. “Then He will say to those on His left, ‘Depart from Me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. Matthew 25:40-43 At the end of the 2nd age, Jesus separates the nations as righteous sheep or goats, Those that turned their back on Jews will burn in the eternal fire of hell. Israel will be the head of the nations. “The Lord will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the Lord your God that I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom.” Deuteronomy 28:13
Ask the Holy Spirit to give you ears to hear and eyes to discern spiritually how God’s plan is steady and on course. Trust in God that we get caught up to Jesus in the clouds. (1 Thess 4:14-18) We remain in heaven for seven years, and during that time: “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.” 2 Corinthians 5:10 After 7 years, there is a war in heaven and Satan is cast out. (2 Cor 5:10 + Romans 14:10 + 1 Cor 3:10) Then we enjoy the Marriage feast of the Lamb. (Rev 19:7-9) When it comes to Israel, God declares “But Israel will be saved by the Lord with an everlasting salvation; you will never be put to shame or disgraced, to ages everlasting.” Isaiah 45:17 What can we hope for during the ages everlasting? “And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain. He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. He threw him into the Abyss, and locked and sealed it over him, to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore until the thousand years were ended. After that, he must be set free for a short time.” Revelation 20:1 GOD IS KNOWABLE: Pastor Jack Hibbs – listen and KNOW God. https://youtu.be/kEu0aUEwsbw?t=1500
THE THIRD AGE IS THE MILLENNIAL: The 3rd age begins at the end of the tribulation when Satan is bound for 1,000 years and the 3rd age ends when eternity begins. After 1,000 years of tempting the living to not do what the King of kings says, Satan is cast into the lake of fire forever. All the saints that return with Jesus will rule and reign as priests. “To Him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by His blood, and has made us to be a kingdom and priests to serve His God and Father—to Him be glory and power for ever and ever! Amen.” Revelation 1:5-6 The people of God will walk and talk freely in His righteousness as we rule and reign with Jesus during the millennial. Jesus also gave John a vision of eternity. “Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,”for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea.” Revelation 21:1 “In keeping with His promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells.” 2 Peter 3:13 “The day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare.” 2 Peter 3:10 The heavens vanish by His roar and the earth will be completely destroyed by His all consuming fire. “When the thousand years are over, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth—Gog and Magog—and to gather them for battle. In number they are like the sand on the seashore. They marched across the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of God’s people, the city He loves. But fire came down from heaven and devoured them. And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.” Revelation 20:7-10 – Who is in charge? God’s perfect word says “the end will come, when He hands over the kingdom to God the Father after He has destroyed all dominion, authority and power. For He must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death.” 1 Corinthians 15:24-26 ETERNITY BEGINS at the end of the THIRD AGE.
