(Q) Does God have a Master Plan for mankind?
(A) First, we shall see what II Peter 3: 8 says: But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
Then, in Exodus 20:8-10, 8God gave these instructions to the nation of Israel: Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.9 Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: 10But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: 11 For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
Since the seventh day of the week symbolizes 1,000 years of rest under the rule of Jesus Christ, the first six days of the week represent 6,000 years in which man has been allowed to govern himself and work out his own ideas and plans. As we look around the world, what do we see under mans rule? Man has not been doing very well under his own rule has he. But anyway, each of the first six days given to man represented 1,000 years of human existence.
So basically, God has a Seven Thousand Year Master Plan for mankind. Most people have never heard about this plan.
From the time God created Adam and Eve and up until the first coming of Christ, there was a time span of about 4,000 years. We know from history that from Christ’s first coming up until our time today, roughly another 2.000 years have elapsed, making a total of nearly 6,000 years.
So, where are we now in God’s great Master Plan? Well, it’s time to wake up people, we are very, very close to the end of mans rule on planet earth. Then the time of the great tribulation begins which God talks about in the book of Revelation.
Before God’s great One Thousand Year Millennial rest takes place, there is going to be a Seven Year period of tribulation on the earth. This tribulation period will be a horrible time; like nothing that has ever happened before on planet earth. You do not want to be part of this tribulation time. It will include all unbelievers; the people who did not put their trust, faith or belief in the Death, Burial, and Resurrection of Christ Jesus our lord and Savior.
Many people are in unbelief today and one reason is because of Satan the devil, Revelation 12:9: And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. Yes, Satan has deceived the whole world! II Corinthians 2:13-15: 13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
Because of this deception by Satan, which most people have fallen for because they have not taken the time to study their Bibles to see if what they are being taught in their churches is true or not according to what the scriptures actually say. Most people are not concerned what will happen when they die. BIG MISTAKE!!! Look at what Christ Himself said in Matthew 7: Matthew 7:13-14: 13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
Only a few will find the way to life eternal!! How sad!!
Wake up and listen to what I am telling you before the TRIBULATION (Which is very close now) takes place.
We are almost at the end of the Six Thousans Years allotted to mankind, then the Tribulation. BUT YOU CAN ESCAPE THIS TRIBULATION PEROID IF YOU DO WHAT I TELL YOU TO DO RIGHT NOW.
The catching away or the Rapture (for all believers) will take place just before this TRIBULATION starts. Believers will be taken away to be with Christ in heaven.
So, to become a true christan believer, you must believe the gospel given to the Apostle Paul.
READ BELOW>>>>>>>>The gospel that saves:
I Corinthians 15:1-4: 1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
Ephesians 1:7: In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace.
Romans 6:23: For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Ephesians 2:8-9:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast. This is where a lot of people fall short and remain in unbelief. Most think they need to do good works for salvation. God says NO, NO!! Christ did all the saving. He died a horrible death ton pay for the sins of mankind. We cannot add anything to what Christ already did for us!!
Romans 3:28: Therefore, we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law.
Today we are under God’s grace. NOT OF WORKS!! Galatians 2:21: I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain. Romans 3:20: Therefore, by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
Acts 4:10-12: 10 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. 11This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. 12Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
Ephesians 1:13-14:13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, 1 4Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.
Today, our salvation comes through the writings given by God to the Apostle Paul, (Romans thru Philemon).
I Timothy 1:15-16: 15 This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief. 16 Howbeit for this cause, I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.
God tells us Paul is a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on Him (CHRIST) to life everlasting.
The Six Thousand years allotted to man is almost finished. Look at the mess we are in right now and it’s going to get a lot worse, because the vast majority of people are in unbelief. Remember, I told you how you can escape the coning TRIBULATION. Just put your sincere from the heart belief in Christ Jesus for the forgiveness of your sins, and if you do, He will forgive you and accept you into His family, called THE BODY OF CHRIST.
God’s great Master Plan, including the TRIBULATION PERIOD is all about bringing more people into His family. God is not willing that any should perish. Choose life so you can be with God in heaven. You will never be sorry if you choose the right way!!
Put your faith in Christ now, and have a good day.
