Most of the world does not know what the future holds for them. Billions do not know what will happen to them when they die. Almighty GOD only holds the answers of what will take place in the future, even perhaps the very, very near future.
There is only one GOD, the Triune GOD, known as the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the very same One revealed in the New Testament of the Holy Bible as the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, one GOD in Three Persons, the blessed and Holy Trinity. There are believers and unbelievers today as in every century of human history. GOD sees Gentiles, Jews, and the Holy Church-the body of Jesus Christ-believers in Him.
At death, two things happen. First, the immaterial part of man, the soul, leaves the body and goes one of two place: to heaven with Jesus, or to hell with unbelievers. The body is buried. Both await a resurrection of the body, but at different times, and in much different circumstances for all eternity. The believers in Christ shall be resurrected at different times but will receive an immortal, glorified, new body to be with Jesus during His thousand year kingdom reign on earth, then with Him, GOD, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit for all eternity. The unbelievers will be resurrected after Christ’s reign on earth, and will face Him, and will die the second death and be cast into the Lake of Fire for all eternity, forever away from GOD. There will also be there in the Lake of Fire Satan, the enemy of GOD, and deceiver of the whole world, along with his son, the Antichrist, and the False Prophet! Plus, also, the fallen angels, the demons!
There shall follow a new heaven and a new earth, and the New Jerusalem shall come down to earth from heaven, prepared by GOD.
Before Creation, GOD had already planned out history in a sequential, chronological order. This generation would be born and accomplish exactly what GOD had planned. All things, both visible and invisible were created by GOD. All people were planned by GOD. All events were planned by GOD. GOD’s plan of the ages, GOD’s plan of salvation can be seen in His holy spoken word written in the Holy Bible. All the prophecies of GOD either have been fulfilled exactly and to the very time, or they will be fulfilled soon, in the future, the time know only to the Father.
And so there is a sequential, chronological order of events which must surely come to pass. These are tied into the “sevens of God.” There was the creation week of seven days. There are one hundred years in a century, and ten centuries to a millennium. We are currently in the sixth millennium of human history. By the time of the birth of Jesus Christ, approximately four thousand years had passed. And since the time of Christ’s crucifixion, death, resurrection, and ascension, almost two thousand years have passed. That’s six thousand years coming up! And Messiah Jesus, the Son of God, the coming King of kings, and Lord of lords will reign on earth for a thousand years, the seventh millennium. Then comes the final judgment, followed by eternity.
The horrible things that are happening around the world today in the 21st Century must happen, and will happen despite the talk of “blood moons,” the Temple, Jihad, Armageddon, the Second Coming, and the “End Times.” But the end is not yet! We are not there yet because GOD has said in His Holy Bible that things future must take place in order. The next great event to occur in GOD’s prophetic plan is the Rapture-resurrection of the Saints-His Church, an event that has no signs, an event that is imminent! Something GOD has promised, something only GOD can do and will do. Once heaven is reached with Christ, the unholy Antichrist will be revealed and the seven year period of judgment and chaos-the Great Tribulation will be present on the whole unbelieving earth! There are many things that will happen during this terrible time in human history. Billions will die, most of the earth will be destroyed! Then the Messiah, Yeshua, Jesus Christ will return from heaven in glory with His armies-the heavenly host. Then He shall reign on the throne of David in Jerusalem for a thousand years. Then comes the judgment of the fallen angels and unbelievers of all human history. Then comes eternity, either with GOD, or away from Him, in the special place He made.
So, it is important to know the future and what it holds.
Heavenly Father. if it be Thy will, please bring today Gentiles and Jews and their families to the saving knowledge and belief in Jesus Christ, the Savior, God, the Son of God. I also pray for the souls of those who were conceived but never born, and that they are with You in heaven. So many mysteries, Lord, that we shall one day know. Blessed be Thy holy name, O Father, Son and Holy Spirit, now and forever…
