The march to the end of this current age, that we live in occurred with a name change.
Jacob retiring for the night hoping to get a good night of sleep. It didn’t happen! Alone he wrestled with a Man until the sun was about to rise. (cp Genesis 32:24.
Now when the Man saw that He could not prevail against him. He touched the socket of Jacob’s hip, and it was thrown out of alignment with thhe socket. v. 25.
Then the Man said, “Let Me go for the day breaks.” Jacob replied, “I will not let You go, unless you bless me!” v. 26.
He said to him, “What is your name?” He said, “Jacob.” v. 27.
He said, “Your name will no longer be called Jacob, but Israel; for you have fought with God and with men, and have prevailed. v, 28.
Jacob asked him, “Please tell me your name, I pray.” And He said, “Why is it that you ask what My name is?” And, He blessed Jacob there. v. 29. And history would be changed, forever.
Jacob called the place Peniel; for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved. v. 30.
That short phrase, “My life is preserved,” has this future meaning for Judah or the Jews.
They will experience some horrendous hardships. Which will be discussed, as I progress with future discussions, but not to the point of extinction, as many are plotting.
It is difficult to say which scriptures are more significant, when compared to others. But the renaming of Jacob to Israel, and his face to face experience with God. Must be considered as one of the most significant of all scriptures.
Because of how that encounter is playing out on the world stage today. So significant that it lays the foundation for understanding our current times. But nothing that is occurring, should be unusual to those, who are apart of our Redeemers body.
Paul provided us with this admonishment. (cp Ephesians 1:17-23.
That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ may give us the spirit of wisdom, and revelation it the knowledge of Him, v.17.
That the eyes of our understanding is being enlightened. That we may know what is the hope of His purpose for you. Along with what are the riches; of His glory, through His inheritance of the saints, v.18.
Along with the exceeding greatness of His power towards us who believe. All according to working of His mighty power, v.19.
Which He worked in Christ. when raised Him the dead, and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places. Far above all principalities, power, might and dominion. And every name that is named, not only in this age, but also in the age to come, v. 20-21.
And put everything under His management, making Him the head of the church. Which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all, v. 22-23. (cp. Ephesians 1:17-23).
Most people just live life from birth to death. With not the slightest interests about the varied aspects of the supernatural. Which surrounds them, and impacts them. With complexities that are quite frightening. Forced to settle with what happens happens.
That is not the case with we Christians. Christians can chart the paths of events with reliable knowledge of that more complex worlds within our world. Coming to grips with natural and unnatural players in and out of our hemisphere.
We can not predict just when events will occur. Neither can we pin point dates on the calendar, or even guess with a degree of accuracy.
However, God has provided enough guidance for us to know that certain future events will emerge. Then we can match them, as they emerge Securing an awareness that the world, as we know it, is rapidly heading for Biblical foreclosure. We call it the doctrines of Eschatology.
Starting with the previous discussion, “Change of Heart.” Then continuing with this discussion, and others to follow. We’ll take a journey that is both enlightening, as it is frightful.
Readers will be handed a gift, that will help them from a Biblical perspective get an understanding of our current times from the Biblical past.
Creating an awareness of God’s love for His believing creation. Which is to differentiate light from darkness.
Some promises are worth repeating. Jesus promised, “I am the light of the world. Those that follow Me will not walk in darkness. But shall have the Light of Life.” (cp. John 8:12).
Meaning a road map for understanding our journey to the end of this era. As the next era of time is itching to release its venom upon a mostly unsuspecting world.
Jesus commanded us to pray like this, “Our Father in heaven, may Your name be kept holy. Let Your kingdom come; and your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.” (cp Matthew 6:9-10).
With yet another promise. “And behold, I will come quickly.” (cp. Revelation 22:12).
He who testifies to these things says, Surely, I come quickly, Amen! Even so come Lord Jesus. Pronouncing this benediction, “The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you all.” (cp. Revelation 22:20-21).
And so, it all boils down to this, “Woe to those; who call evil good, and good evil, who put darkness for light, and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!” (cp. Isaiah 5:20).
