We have Been in The End Times since Christ’s Ascension, If….
……you do not believe in Dispensational Theology. This can be said with all assurity because Jesus said,
27 “For the Son of Man is going to come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and WILL THEN REPAY EVERY MAN ACCORDING TO HIS DEEDS.
28 “Truly I say to you, there are some of those who are standing here who will not taste death until they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom.”
Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done. KJV
Jesus still has not come in his Kingdom, with his angels, in the glory of his Father—-yet, everyone standing there and everyone in that generation died and did not see this. Without Dispensational Theology Jesus was mistaken ‘maken’ these statements.
Upon the day of Jesus’ ascension into Heaven here is what the apostles were thinking about: Acts 1:6, ….they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? KJV
Jesus and the apostles obviously expected each of these things to happen in their lifetimes, but they did not. They all knew the prophecies of Daniel and Ezekiel and Joel and expected those prophesies to be fulfilled within the next 7 years, but they were not.
No one can explain, with any amount of reason or logic, why they did not without Dispensational Theology. If you think you can, then you must admit that Jesus does not know as much as his Father knows. Somehow, most everyone believes Jesus and the Father are equal in knowledge in spite of Jesus’ own admission that they are not equal:
32 “But of that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone. NASU
Without an understanding of and belief in Administrations in Scripture, you have not a leg to stand on. Everything you rationalize to substantiate why you believe what you believe will be completely illogical and unreasonable. Peter the apostle says this about Paul’s letters written to the Church of God, to which every believer belongs:
2 Peter 3:14-18
aTherefore, beloved, since you look for these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, spotless and blameless, 15 and regard the patience of our Lord as salvation; just as also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given him, wrote to you, 16 as also in all his letters, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which the untaught and unstable distort, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction. 17 You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, be on your guard so that you are not carried away by the error of unprincipled men and fall from your own steadfastness, 18 but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen. NASU
Have you been diligent in understanding the Secret Paul taught?
Are you among the untaught and unstable?
Have you allowed yourself to be carried away by the error of unprincipled men?
Are you growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as revealed in all of Paul’s letters?
