…a Bible student's notes…

The True Message of the Messiah’s Second Presence…

 Note:  I need to combine my posts here with notes from the Ladies Bible Study.  For our first two sessions, we focused on foundational precepts that must be understood and “received” so that the Bible will make sense. 

Nutshell:  The words, “eternal” and “everlasting” have to do with a measurable period of time, an “age.”  (“Eternity” is expressed in the words, “ever and ever” (age upon age) Example:  Rev 22:5 And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever. )

The Bible deals, largely, with only two ages: “This age and the age to come.” ( see: https://searchfortreasure.wordpress.com/2009/09/08/simple-outline-of-galatians/) I searched this site and have used the phrase “age to come” 141 times. Chose this URL because it seemed the best summary. You can do your own search, if you like.)

“This age” contains 6,000 years – is named the 6th “day of those 6,000 years.  This 6th day is sometimes referred to as “this day” in the Scriptures.

“The age to come” contains one day of 1,000 years named the 7th day, the coming Kingdom of God, the Messianic kingdom, etc. The coming “age” is longer than last 7th “day of 1,000 years.”  The coming 1,000 years is sometimes referred to as “that day” in the Scriptures.

In the heaven there are invisible thrones, dominions, principalities and powers. In the earth, there are visible thrones, dominions, principalities, and powers. ALL created for Him (the Son of the Father’s Love) and all these thrones, dominions, principalities and powers consist through Him!

(Col 1:13) Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:

(Col 1:14) In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

(Col 1:15) Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:

(Col 1:16) For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

(Col 1:17) And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.

God is speaking to us today through His Son, through Whom He made the ages. We will not be able to understand – put together – the meanings of God’s Word without this knowledge and wisdom.

 I am going to print the whole first chapter of Hebrews for you here. Keep in mind that angels are ruling in the invisible principalities now.

(Heb 1:1) God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,

(Heb 1:2) Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; (lit: “ages.”)

(Heb 1:3) Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;

(Heb 1:4) Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.

(Heb 1:5) For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?

(Heb 1:6) And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.

(Heb 1:7) And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.

(Heb 1:8) But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.

(Heb 1:9) Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

(Heb 1:10) And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands:

(Heb 1:11) They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment;

(Heb 1:12) And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.

(Heb 1:13) But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool?

(Heb 1:14) Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
