6-27-2017 Jesus And The Last Days

“He 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). God “has in these last days spoken to us by His Son” (Hebrews 1:2 NKJV). “These last times” and “these last days” all refer to the same time period–when Jesus lived on earth. “But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons” (Galatians 4:4-5 NKJV). It was the “last days” for Jews to be God’s chosen people, not “the last days” for the world, itself!
