The 7000 year plan of God


2 comments:

  1. "And, behold, you shall conceive in your womb, and bring forth a son, and shall call His name Jesus. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give to Him the throne of His father David: And He shall reign over the house of Jacob forever; and of His kingdom there shall be no end." Luke 1:31-33 Christ's Kingdom was already set up at the cross with His death and resurrection. 1000 years is symbolic of an undetermined amount of time,not literal. No final physical battle, Jesus paid the price and won the victory at the cross, He died for us, in our place. Satan was at this time cast down from heaven, no longer able to accuse the brethren, made to rule the earth. Rev.12:9-12. Hosea 6:1&2 is fulfilled in Christ, 1Cor.15:4. Christ will return once for all, He is no respecter of persons; those who accept Christ are the New Jerusalem, He shed His innocent blood on the cross so that all mankind could be healed, saved and restored to God. Everything was completed in Christ, He said on the cross "It is finished". Jeremiah 31:35-36 predicts what would happen to the natural nation of Israel if they did not turn from their wickedness. v.36 "If those ordinances depart from before Me, says the Lord, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before Me forever." Fulfillment of this is in Matthew 24:29 "Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light (God's favor with the Jews is lost) an interesting point here when Christ was crucified there was a total eclipse and the sun and moon actually were darkened, but the spiritual significance is the end of God's favor with the Jews. The stars that fall from heaven and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken(Rev.12:9-12). Matthew 24:35-36 "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My words shall not pass away. But of that day and hour knows no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but My Father only." There have been many predictions of Christ's return, and because of this verse and many other truths of God's Word, I do not believe them, neither do I accept this 7000 year plan as what the Bible teaches. Christ's return could very well be within that time frame, the earth has certainly grown wicked enough. When God looks upon the earth and sees the hearts of man, and when He determines the time is ready, no more hope perhaps for mankind, then He will decide to send His Son for final judgment. God loves Israel, yes, but no more than any other nation. He loved them so much that He sent His Son, just as He did for all mankind that would accept Him. Romans 2:11
    For there is no respect of persons with God. This is just one of at least 7 places where God states that He is not a respecter of persons. Is Christ coming soon? We certainly are seeing a great apostasy which is all that is left to happen.It's very likely, and we need to be walking in righteousness before Him and ready. I love you Steve and pray that you will consider these scriptures. This is perhaps a bit sketchy, it would take a lot of time to expound on every scripture which pertains to this, but His Word is meant to be simple and to be understood. God's blessings ~ Sandy

    1. Any conclusion that the Lord has forever rejected Israel and the Jews is simply Replacement Theology. Not only does Romans 9-11 speak clearly of the Lord's purposes for Israel, but logic itself shows that a branch would not be grafted into a dead tree, as in Romans 11:16-24. "For I do not desire, brethren, that you should be ignorant of this mystery, lest you should be wise in your own opinion, that blindness in part has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written, "The deliverer will come out of Zion, and He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob (Israel); for this is My covenant with them, when I take way their sins."
