The God who is timeless and above time, relates to mankind through time. As this year draws to a close, let His Word establish your heart.
“For I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like Me, declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times things that are not yet done.” Isaiah 46:9-10
“But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman. Galatians 4:4
God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds; 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 at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become so much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. Hebrews 1:1-4
In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace which He made to abound toward us in all wisdom and prudence, having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself, that in the dispensation of the fullness of the times He might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven and which are on earth—in Him. In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will, that we who first trusted in Christ should be to the praise of His glory. In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory. Ephesians 1:7-14
Our Lord knows those who are His. He’s given us His written Word to establish us. He’s given us His Spirit to seal us until the Day of the Lord when He gathers us to Him at the rapture. At that appointed time, fully perfected in Him and officially seated with Him at the right hand of the Father in Heaven, we shall bring the times of the Gentiles to a decisive end and restore the kingdom to Israel as promised—as part of our heavenly calling in Him.
Until then, “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind” (2 Timothy 1:7).
