10-13-2016 Jesus Marked The “Last Times”
Jesus Christ “indeed was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you who through Him believe in God, who raised Him from the dead and gave Him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God” (1 Peter 1:20-21 NKJV). Peter wrote this New Testament Book in the First Century, saying Jesus “was manifest in these last times.” Whose “last times?” Not the church of Christ, because Jesus instructed: “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Amen” (Matthew 28:19-20 NKJV). Jesus came in God’s “last times” of the Jews as His chosen people.
