THE AGE OF THE KINGDOM

     "Now all these things happened unto them for examples and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come"(ICor. 10:11)  Taken literally one would wonder how many "ends" our world has!  This verse deserves our examination. We should always see ourselves Highly Favored, since all that happened to the "church in the wilderness" was to be instructional and a model for us in order not to fall prey to the same pitfalls! "Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall"(ICor. 10:12). We who have a deep love for real truth should never presume we have arrived, for there is always deeper depths for which we must be determined to reach!
 
     Let us deal with the word "ends". This is not talking about a screeching halt to our planet! This refers to appointed times and ages which follow after the age of Moses' Law!  Ends being plural, lets us know their are greater things ahead, the Prophet Zechariah declared: "Our God's dominion was to the "ends of the earth", here's the revelation: God has all epochs, dispensations and ages covered by His great wisdom!  Likewise King David sets our soul on fire with his mighty psalm: "All the ends of the world shall remember and turn unto the Lord and all the kindreds of the nations shall worship before thee. For the kingdom is the Lord's: and he is the governor (powerful ruler) among the nations"(Psalms 22:27-28).

     In examining the phrase "ends of the world" Strong's Concordance makes it clear we are dealing with ages and this is not referring to the planet. Ages which is plural could also be described as; a past age (Moses' Law), a present age (the church age), and also a future age (The Kingdom of God)!  During the "church age" God added the Gentiles along with the devout Jews making the two into one nation (Eph. 2:14). In Acts chapter eight, He added the Samaritan Nation, in Acts chapter ten He added the Italian Band and this was a glorious beginning! With the end of the "church age" comes the end of the "times of the Gentiles" and a greater Age Dawns! The established protocol of the "church age" is the five-fold ministry with the purpose of maturing and edifying the saints to be a part of a "body ministry". Rather than dwelling on failures of the church, let's look ahead beyond edifying the saints and talk about ruling and reigning! Yes the words of King David have come alive, for Jesus is the Governor of a Mighty Kingdom and the "body of Christ" is the extension of His Right Hand!
 
     Many are sensing the closing of one and the great beginning of another! "...Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins (gospel of Salvation) in his own blood. And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father,(gospel of the Kingdom) to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. (Rev.1:5-6)  A "move" of the Bride of Christ reigning as "Sons of God" awaits God's Chosen and Elect! Always remember the Sons are those who are led by the Spirit 24 hours a day!  The developing of a Son includes knowing the difference between "edifying the saints" and "ruling the nations". To do a Spiritual Work, we must become Spiritual Beings down to our core. "And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, (close out the church age) to him will I give power over the nations:"(Rev.2:26).  "And I will give him the morning star".  Saints of God this is in "red letters" it is the promise of Jesus Himself declaring a brand new Day, but only to those who have an ear to hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
