Eschatology in Romans Related to Israel and the Church, Part 4

If folks would stop, step back, and look at Romans 11 as a whole, it is fairly easy to see that Paul’s argument sets out to prove that Israel is not permanently rejected by God, but the nation has only been temporarily set aside. Since the time of Jesus, Jews like Paul have been added by faith to God’s Kingdom. The one change is that Gentiles now also are added the same way since God has temporarily placed Israel the nation on the shelf. At a point in the future, during the coming Tribulation period, God will once again turn His attention to Israel the nation and begin restoring her fortunes, which will find complete fulfillment during the Millennial Kingdom immediately following the Tribulation.

Eschatology in Romans Related to Israel and the Church, Part 3

Notice in Romans 11:12 (above), Paul finishes his thought by asking a question. He asks that if Israel’s “transgression” means spiritual wealth for the world and specifically, that transgression (unbelief) has allowed God to go around Israel and offer salvation directly to Gentiles, then how much more precious and rich will Israel’s “full restoration bring” to the entire world be? Here, Paul is looking forward to the coming Millennial Kingdom where the remaining future promises connected with Israel will unfold and be fulfilled. At that point, Israel will be the center of our world just as it is the center of God’s World now (cf. Ezekiel 5:5; 38:12). During the coming Millennial Kingdom, Israel will be the fountain of blessing for the entire world! It is extremely important to grasp this.

Eschatology in Romans Related to Israel and the Church, Part 1

Romans 3:1-4 indicates that at a future point, God will revive and complete His program with Israel. He will choose a final remnant of believing Jews who will place their faith in Jesus as Savior, Messiah, and Lord and this will occur during the upcoming Tribulation period (“time of Jacob’s trouble”). God is waiting for that generation of Jews, but it is not as though He is sitting in the heavens wringing His hands wondering when or if that generation will one day appear. That generation will appear and they will appear at the exact time they are supposed to appear, according to God’s sovereignty and timing. It is already a “done” deal as far as God is concerned. Because He exists in the eternal present, He, unlike us, has already seen it happen. He knows them each by name. He sees their faces. They will embrace His salvation (cf. Zechariah 12:10).

Ten Kings, the Antichrist, and the New World Order, Part 7

These are the main things that this seven-year covenant creates when Antichrist is given power to bring it to fruition. Until God’s timing is right, it will not happen, no matter who tries it and no matter how many times it is tried. The key is God’s timing and we’re not there yet.

Ten Kings, the Antichrist, and the New World Order, Part 5

Since the AD 70 sacking of Jerusalem, there have been continued wars and conflicts there and Scripture tells us that these will continue until the end of this age, which will be purposefully brought to an end by the physical return of Jesus. In fact, this age will end with the build up to a final war, Armageddon (Revelation 16). This war is solely designed by Satan (through Antichrist) and his world forces to keep Jesus from returning to earth. Satan’s efforts will fail miserably (2 Thessalonians 2).

Ten Kings, the Antichrist, and the New World Order, Part 3

But where does all of this start? As we noted previously, even though the coming one-world government has roots all the way back to Genesis 11, Nimrod, and the Tower of Babel, it all begins in earnest in Daniel 2. This is where God chose to reveal what was previously hidden and starts the clock ticking. It is interesting that God chose to reveal the start of the first empire all the way to the global unification of the fourth and final empire in its revised or “resurrected” form (yet future), through Nebuchadnezzar. However, it makes sense if this is where God began tracking the 70 “weeks” that are revealed in Daniel 9.

Deuteronomy: Application of the Law

The idea to love God was foreign to the Israelites’ way of life and understanding. It is something that needed to be developed within them. Why did Moses urge the Israelites to love God? Simply because love – true love – creates a desire to please the object of that love, from the heart. Without love, things done for another are done mainly out of fear or duty. Moses wanted the Israelites to go well beyond this where God was concerned. He wanted them to love God so that their actions and words toward Him would flow from a heart overflowing with appreciation and awe.
