It's Not the End of the World - Part X - "And Then Shall The End Come"

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


This series of studies has analyzed God’s word to see what the scriptures really say about our Lord and Savior‘s “second” coming.  We have examined evidences within the scriptures that clearly refer to “these last days” and then identify certain events that happened in “these last days” as events which occurred during the first century A.D.  We have shown that only the people who witnessed Jesus’ first appearance could receive a promise of a second appearance.  We have shown that the figurative judgment language of the Old Testament was used when God pronounced a day of the Lord, or a coming of the Lord in judgment against the nations, or a tribe of people.  We have seen that this same figurative judgment language was also used in the New Testament record, and was therefore also pronouncing a day of the Lord, or a coming of the Lord in judgment against a nation or tribe.  

We have seen that the dating of the book of Revelation has been misplaced, incorrectly taught, for most of “church” history, and that it is correctly determined to have been written before the destruction of Jerusalem, approximately A.D. 66 – A.D. 68.  We have seen that the Jesuits and Zionists are in league for their own political purposes to deceive the world into believing that they had to reestablish the “State” of Israel in 1948 to supposedly allow for the Jewish temple to be rebuilt, and to allow a false dispensational teaching of a 1,000 year reign of Christ on earth.  We have seen that Acts 2 confirms that the prophecy of Joel 2 of the pouring forth of the Holy Spirit in the last days occurred on the day of Pentecost in the first century A.D., and that the Christians of the first century believed that Jesus told them they would see his second appearance in their generation, in their lifetime. (All parts of this series are found under my contributor link above.)

But, has the prophecy of Mat. 24:14 been fulfilled?  Yes, it has!  In this last Part X of this series, we will look at the evidences from the New Testament scriptures that affirm this to be so.

Mat. 24:14, “ And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.”

Mark 16:15, speaking to the eleven disciples, “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.”

This is a specific instruction to the eleven disciples before Jesus’ crucifixion.  It is not our instruction.  It was given unto them in the first century A.D.  ( Our commission from 2 Tim 2: 2 is to commit the teachings of Christ and the Apostles to faithful men who will be able to teach others also. )

The testimony of Paul that the gospel was preached to all the world in the first century A.D. -

Romans 10:18, “But I say, Have they not heard? Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world.”

Romans 15:19. “Through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God; so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Illyricum, I have fully preached the gospel of Christ.”

1 Tim. 3:16. “And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.”

Col 1:6, “Which is come unto you, as it is in all the world; and bringeth forth fruit, as it doth also in you, since the day ye heard of it, and knew the grace of God in truth:”

Col 1:23, “If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard, and which was preached to every creature which is under heaven; whereof I Paul am made a minister;”

The book of Romans is generally thought to have been written from Corinth in the winter of AD 56-57, after Paul’s missionary journey throughout the eastern provinces of Rome was completed.  

The letter of I Timothy is reasonably thought to have been written in A.D. 57, as explained here:

“There is no hint in 1 Timothy that Paul is in prison. In other letters, where Paul is in prison, he says so or alludes to it multiple times, so this fact alone tends to date 1 Timothy prior to Paul’s imprisonment in Caesarea in 57 A.D. Paul says he urged Timothy to stay at Ephesus while he went to Macedonia (1 Tim 1:3). These are events from Paul’s third missionary journey (Acts 20:1). This provides the reason for the letter, instructing Timothy in how to manage the church in Paul’s absence. Timothy is still quite young (1 Tim 4:11-15). Timothy would have needed this letter toward the beginning of his time in Ephesus, not years later, so it is best to assume that Paul wrote it very shortly after his departure. Since Paul spent three years in Ephesus (Acts 20:31) and his departure was toward the end of his third missionary journey, the best date for 1 Timothy would be around 56 or early 57 A.D.”  Http://www.datingthenewtestament.com/Timothy.htm

Colossians is thought to have been written while Paul was in prison, around 61 – 62 A.D. Source: http://www.datingthenewtestament.com/ColossiansPhilemon.htm

So, we have affirmation from the Apostle Paul that the gospel was preached unto every creature under heaven no later than 62 A.D.  

The end prophesied in Matthew 24:14 would only happen after the gospel had been preached (the will probated) throughout the “world”.  The people had to hear the gospel before He would come in judgment against that generation.  Paul says that every creature under heaven heard it by A.D. 62.  The end, the judgment prophesied in Mat: 24:14 occurred 8 years later in A.D. 70 at the destruction of Jerusalem.

The judgment of A.D. 70 was the end of the old covenant with God’s chosen people, the Israelites.  The will of the New Testament, the new covenant had been probated. All those of the last two thousand years who have believed and confessed Christ as the Son of God, have repented of their sins, and been baptized for the remission of those sins have put on Christ, and are now of the spiritual seed of Abraham, and are spiritual Israelite, and the spiritual chosen of God.  We are in the New Jerusalem, the New Heavens and the New Earth.

There is no need for Christ to come to earth again.  He reigns in heaven, and oversees the process.  He judges the nations from Heaven, just as He always has.  Coming back to earth would be a step backward.  Earthly kingdoms are not everlasting.

The process of becoming a Christian was established by the Apostles with His church and His Kingdom in the first century A.D., and it has been on-going ever since for those who will hear and obey.  We live in the age of His spiritual kingdom, and it is an everlasting kingdom.  We do not need to be looking for an end to something that is everlasting.  It is not going to end.   Psa. 145:13, Dan. 4:3, Dan. 7:14, 2 Pet 1:11.

“Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.” Ephesians 3:21..

I hope that you will share these studies with as many as you can, so that we may be brought out of the lies of the Zionists which have enslaved the world.  Blessings in Christ, Gina.

      Jesus Christ has already had a 2nd coming. In his previous existence he was called Dion (Dion has same meaning as Christ) Ysus. He was jovial character with a love of the vine, and turning water into wine.

      Here he is dying on the cross: http://www.atheistview.com/images/dionysus_on_cross.gif
      This is a small amulet carried by Dionysus followers, hundreds of years before the Jesus story time line.

      What is the Sam Hill is this?

      • BEEF SUPREME

        An intense study of judeo-christo-CREEP-ism, obviously cowPlop!
        :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

        It is a progression study of God’s word. You might understand better if you began at Part I.

        • CrowPie

          Oh, I’ve been a student of The Word for decades. I was just questioning your interpretation.

          I think once many of the learned members of this site find your posts you will have a very interesting time discussing your conclusions. There are many here who are much more learned than myself and far more gifted in these areas.

          As for myself, I firmly agree that “many’ prophecies have been fulfilled, but not all. I don’t believe that Christ has returned or that The Judgement has occurred.

          On a side note…..we share a thing or two in common.

          • Gina

            Keep looking at it. Go over it and re-read for a while. The propaganda we were all taught has a strong hold. But, when it clears, it’s a moment to remember. God’s word rules. A belief statement that is not supported by God’s word is not of God.

            • CrowPie

              ” God’s word rules. A belief statement that is not supported by God’s word is not of God.”

              On this we can agree. Welcome to the Bin.

    • CAPTAIN CHAOS!!

      “The judgment of A.D. 70 was the end of the old covenant with God’s chosen people, the Israelites.”

      That statement is not supported by the Scriptures.

      “The will of the New Testament, the new covenant had been probated.”

      And that statement is pure and undiluted speculation.

      “All those of the last two thousand years who have believed and confessed Christ as the Son of God, have repented of their sins, and been baptized for the remission of those sins have put on Christ, and are now of the spiritual seed of Abraham, and are spiritual Israelite, and the spiritual chosen of God. We are in the New Jerusalem, the New Heavens and the New Earth.”

      Wow. You must be easily impressed. Some of us expect our Father to be taken at His word. When He describes the City From Above descending to the New Earth (after the old Earth is wiped clean like a dry erase board, incidentally. By fire, incidentally), do we dare believe what He says? Some of us do. Has anyone you know received a glorified body the way Messiah has received His? Or is that meant to be taken in the metaphorical or allegorical sense also?

      “There is no need for Christ to come to earth again.”

      Sister, not to put too fine a point on it, but you are blind. And you should not be teaching.

      “Coming back to earth would be a step backward.”

      A frank and brazen contradiction of His Word.

      “Earthly kingdoms are not everlasting.”

      One we are expecting will be age-abiding.

      “We do not need to be looking for an end to something that is everlasting.”

      Now you contradict even yourself.

      “I hope that you will share these studies with as many as you can, so that we may be brought out of the lies of the Zionists which have enslaved the world.”

      The Zionists are liars. And many have been deceived. But your empty and flimsy understanding of the word makes not even for entertaining reading. Have you read the Word? Hear the Word:

      For God speaketh once, yea twice, yet man perceiveth it not.

      The fulfillments of prophecy you make mention of have merit. But what else? Where is the PERFECT (the SECOND) fulfillment of all prophecy? Do you deny the second? Do you deny our Father speaks twice? Why do we need a second witness for every true word? Why was the Creation Week a model for the Structure of Salvation in this age? In whose image are we made?

      Answer these questions, if you can. (And I mean that in the rhetorical sense. You and I need not debate the matter. You have everything to learn before you begin debating anyone.)

      Genesis 5:3

      And Adam lived an hundred and thirty years, and begat a son IN HIS OWN LIKENESS, after HIS IMAGE; and called his name Seth…

      You see that, Gina? You and I were not born in the image of God. The Son was the expressed image of the Highest; but you and I are made in the image and likeness of Adam. Now I ask you, has the process been completed? Has Messiah returned once and for all? No. Even a fool can see that He has not. The work is not finished. The New Covenant is NOT instituted to the full. The New Covenant has barely begun its work of re-making man and the Creation in the image and likeness of the Most High.

      Your expectations for fulfillment are so low as to be almost non-existent. Try taking our Father at His word and see what happens. I promise you, at once you’ll begin to see a bit more clearly.

      You have no idea what awaits you.
