Since the day of Pentecost there is only one Hope:
The Apostle Paul was given the light that we the Ekklesia of Grace – the Church of His Body, the Lord Jesus, will be gathered together by the Lord Jesus before the Great Tribulation . He explains we are not the children of wrath and we are the children of grace not law, light not darkness – I Thessalonians 5:9-11.
The Apostle Paul gives us the light we shall be rewarded for our service to the Lord Jesus.
We submit our gathering together will happen before the Great Tribulation because those who are actually in the Great Tribulation must endure to the end without submitting to the False Messiah.
First of all, we are given unconditional everlasting life by the love of God for us through our faith and confession God has raised Jesus from the dead and Jesus is Lord since the day of Pentecost.
Also, nowhere in the Church Epistles does the Apostle Paul say we are to endure to the end – rather he says we are to endure hardness as a good soldier of the Lord Jesus, to not waver – to count it all joy due to trials and tribulations of our faith in the Lord Jesus.
The Apostle Paul told Timothy to “Fight the good fight of the Faith until the appearing of the Lord Jesus I Timothy 6:14.
He says we are to comfort one another with the light that the Lord Jesus shall change our body into a body like his – Philippians 3:20.
The Apostle Paul gives us the light that we are to look for the appearing of the Lord Jesus – not for signs.
The appearing of the Lord Jesus could happen at any moment and we shall be with the Lord Jesus from that point on forever. I Thessalonians 4: 13-16.
We submit the light that absolutely no one is given immortality until the day the Lord Jesus gathers us together. The Apostle Paul explains we are the first-fruits from the dead before anyone else from Adam to our gathering together by the Lord Jesus.
We submit the light that according to the dispensations that the One True God has predestinated in His wisdom – Ephesians 1: 1-10, that the gathering together of us who are members of the Church of His Body, the Lord Jesus, is the end of this dispensation of the Ekklesia of Grace, the Church of His Body since the day of Pentecost in the year of his death, resurrection and ascension to the right hand of the One True God.
Bless all those that look for the appearing of our Lord Jesus at any given moment.
