The "Last Days" - Part 5

The Plan of Redemption - God has a plan and purpose for the Ages. He has revealed this plan to us in His Word. As it's stated in 2 Tim 1:9 (KJV), "Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,". The lesson on 11-18-2001 completes two series of studies. First, it ends the series of lessons that pertain to the timing of the New Testament books written during the Acts Period. This lesson also concludes the mini-series on the "Last Days" as Part 5. Both series are very complimentary since the set of “Last Days” specified in Revelation and Matthew were imminent at the end of Acts. The apostles alive at that time like Peter, James, and John declared the “time was at hand”. What happened? With the close of Acts, Israel was set aside temporarily while God revealed another calling (also referred to as “God’s Hidden Purpose”) through the Apostle Paul which he calls "The Mystery". The dispensation of “The Mystery” has its own set of last days as well which is described in 1 Tim 4:1-3 and 2 Tim 3:1-9 and this series has identified the differences.
