We are now in the “age of the gentiles!” A light bulb had just switched on as I first read it. I had remembered reading, “…Israel has experienced a hardening in part until the full number of the Gentiles has come in.” – Romans 11:25. Also written, “…Jerusalem will be trampled on by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.” – Luke 21:24.
This does not mean this time isn’t for Jewish people. It just means Christ has allowed this time for people other than the Jewish people also to come by grace and be born again (saved) before he comes back. He loves you and is giving you time to come to know him.
Gentiles are any people on this earth except for the Jewish people. There are Jews and there are Gentiles. That is how God groups people in His word, the Bible.
The Bible has the greatest history and the best true story ever told. And the history is continuing with you playing a part in it, until Jesus decides to come back one day. The story is one that is written about people of the past but also for the people who are here now, too. It is written personally for each of us and tells us the story of the beginning of the world, what happens in between, and most excitingly the end of the story for all mankind.
It is on this premise that I write to you. I pray and I hope that you will join me and come to know Jesus better as I write and share my thoughts about the Lord and His word. For you are either a Jew or a Gentile, and my discussions are for you both! We are in God’s timeline my friend, and you help to decide the part you will play.
