Why wait for the millennium? You can escape the evils of the end of the age now; no quantum leaps necessary. There are no pandemics, shipping crisis, or inflation issues in heaven. God has enabled His children to access the blessings and security of the world to come right here and now. The only thing necessary is to know what is given and to understand how to access it. The Christian has already been delivered from the violence, corruption and economic ruin we now see being poured out upon the lost of this world as we draw on step closer to the end of the age with the passing of each new day. ~ “Who gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil age, according to the will of our God and Father” (Galatians 1.4).
Taking the High Road
It is nothing more than understanding what Christ actually did for the believer when He rose from the dead on the third day and following His instructions. Jesus is the prototype. He demonstrated to us the fruit of the true Christian life. He was not subject to the evils and constraints of this present age. Like a time-traveler, Jesus was living in this present, but he was not restricted to the limitations and curses of the present age. He was already living according to the laws and blessings of the millennium, the thousand-year reign of Christ in the age to come where there is no curse and man is transformed into the image of God. ~ “Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes” (Mark 9.23).
Escaping from the Ruins
Jesus demonstrated to us how to enjoy the privileges of time travel which operates by faith so that we could be saved from the evils of this present age, and so that we could save others by teaching them how to operate the powerful spiritual laws that can catapult anyone out of the weakness and suffering of this present age, which is cursed of God, and transport them into the benefits of the world to come. This is what Jesus was doing when He walked on the water, multiplied the bread, spoke to the wind and the waves, and raised the dead. But this was not a special privilege that belonged exclusively to Jesus because he was the Son of God. No, this was something that Christians in all generations have understood clearly and practiced every day of their lives. Consider the words of the Apostle Paul writing to the Christians in the church of the Galatians… ~ “But now after you have known God, or rather are known by God, how is it that you turn again to the weak and beggarly elements, to which you desire again to be in bondage?” (Galatians 4.9).
The Bondage of the World System
These were Christians who, like so many in our present generation, were born again and began their time travel into the blessings of the age to come and had been set free from the ‘beggarly elements’ that bring people into the bondage in this present age;’ however, false teachers had destroyed their faith and robbed them of their blessings. ~ “I could wish that those who trouble you would even cut themselves off!” (Galatians 5.12). Like the Galatians, the solution was the removal of the false teachers. Paul is saying that the cause by which these people lost their faith and had fallen back under the bondage of the beggarly elements of this present world system was due to their complacency and apathetic addiction to false doctrine. Like leaven, only a tiny amount can stop the wheels of time from turning in your favor. These people have the dishonor in the Bible of being those who listened to false teachers, to men who had no personal revelation of the Spirit of God because God had not sent them.
The Lost Key
The Bible say that it is easy to know if someone is really sent by God or not. Scripture tells us… ~ “For He whom God has sent speaks the words of God” (John 3.34). And the Galatians knew it, but they refused to follow the Spirit and continued listening to the leaven until their spirit grew cold and their faith faded away. Notice what the apostle Paul told them to do ~ “A little leaven leavens the whole lump” (Galatians 5.9). There will always be plenty of false ministers. However, only those who choose to listen to them will be affected by their jargon and be judged for aiding and abetting the promulgation of false doctrine. Paul gives them the key. He said it’s their responsibility, not God’s, to remove all human teaching, which is the leaven, and only permit that which is obviously anointed and directed by the Holy Spirit. The key to deliverance from the evils of this present age is ‘pure’ doctrine, the teaching of the unadulterated word of God under the fire of the Holy Spirit.
The Truth Behind the Lies
Only a tiny amount of leaven destroys the faith that is necessary to fuel the spiritual time machine. In closing, the object is to first perceive with the spiritual eye the power and privileges granted to the child of God in this present age by Jesus Christ. The only way to do this is by the anointing of God ministered to the believer via the preaching of the word of God. Notice the method Christ used and what happened to these young men Jesus preached the scriptures to them. ~ “He [Jesus] expounded to them in all the Scriptures. Then their eyes were opened and they knew Him” (Luke 24.27,31).
Deuteronomy 11.21 That your days and the days of your children may be multiplied in the land of which the LORD swore to your fathers to give them, like the days of the heavens above the earth.
