God's Grand Plan of the Ages

God's Kingdom will be more wonderful, more glorious, more all encompassing, than all the dreams of philosophers, poets and sages. There will be a world of peace (Psalm 46:9) The healing of all the defects of humanity (Isaiah 35:5,6) Moral integrity will be planted in every heart (Jeremiah 31:33) All the dead of past ages will be raised to life again (1 Cor. 15:22) Sorrow, pain, tears and death itself will cease (Revelation 21:4) "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived, what God has prepared for those who love him" (1 Corinthians 2:9)

A Nightime of Sin... to End in a Joyful Morning!

The dark night of sin now engulfing man will never be forgotten! But soon in the dawning Age, Messiah as the “Sun of Righteousness” shall arise with healing and blessing. The dreadful night of pain, sickness and death will end. The joy of morning will more than offset the tears of our groaning creation. “Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning” (Psalm 30:5).

An Intelligent, Loving Creator

God implanted in us a yearning to understand the universe. We want to understand where we have come from, where we are going, what is our destiny. Having implanted in us this desire to know, would not a loving and just Creator reveal for us an answer to these longings?

Time in God's Plan

Imagine walking down the street of a big city and seeing a fenced-off section with noisy blasting, dust flying and piles of debris. If we peeked through a hole in the fence, we might cry out, “What a mess! Whoever planned this project did not know what they were doing!” But wait! Is it fair to judge an architect by his unfinished work? Surely not

Object of our Lord's Return is to Restore

Many Scriptures indicate that at the time of our Lord’s second coming the world will be far from being converted to God. In Luke 21:27-35 Jesus, speaking of his return and coming Kingdom, says “take heed to yourselves lest...that day come upon you unawares, for as a snare shall it come on all them (not taking heed) that dwell on the face of the whole earth. In 2 Timothy 3:1-4 the Apostle Paul tells us, “In the last days...men shall be...lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God.” Revelation 1:7 states that at Christ’s return, “All kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him.” Clearly the world is not converted when Christ returns. On the contrary, the Scriptures teach that Christ comes before the conversion of the world, for the purpose of converting the world! The Church is tested now in order to share with Jesus in blessing the world later in His promised Kingdom. “They lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years” (Revelation 20:4;3:21).

Death of Jezebel


The Chicago Bible Students would like to invite you to join an online public lecture during our Sunday morning service on Oct 5 at 9 a.m., on the subject of "The Death of Jezebel".  Below is a brief summary of what will be covered in this interesting Bible Study topic.

The Death of Jezebel“Jezebel” --- The very name has come to stand for the embodiment of the dangers for God’s people in foreign alliances, abominable idolatry, unbridled ambition, and wickedness in power. When we turn to the Book of Revelation we find that Jezebel is not only a type (picture) but a significant type, for she is one of only four historical persons who are named there. These are faithful Moses, beloved David, iniquitous Balaam, and but one woman – iniquitous Jezebel (Revelation 2:20). Elijah and his implacable enemy Jezebel are types — since both are mentioned in scripture long after their deaths as prefiguring future events. Yet, in setting forth antitypes it is necessary to employ both caution and restraint and to recall that our spirit respecting these matters is being weighed by the Lord, “…we wish to state most emphatically that we are saying nothing whatever against godly Christians anywhere, at any time, whether in any church or out of any church. We have nothing to say respecting people. We discuss PRINCIPLES, DOCTRINES, ALWAYS; individuals, NEVER!” (Pastor Charles T. Russell, The Battle of Armageddon, Vol. 4; Foreword p.iv) 

Questions we will consider together will focus on some common misunderstandings about the death of Ahab, King of Israel and of the Queen Jezebel. For example, were their well-deserved deaths approximately 14 hours apart? 14 days? 14 weeks? 14 months? Or, 14 years? As we examine this question during the presentation, we will suggest a few interesting anti-types that conform to history as it has unfolded since World War I and bring things up to 2014 by considering some “mega-trends” we need to watch. We will consider the “three unclean spirits like frogs” (Revelation 16:13), an evil triumvirate whose croakings will hasten that which is out of harmony with divine principles on to the battle of “the great day of God Almighty.” (Revelation 16:14)

Free Booklet: God's Grand Plan of the Ages

 

gpa-titleYou may request this FREE booklet by filling out this secure form.

THIS OFFER IS VALID FOR DOMESTIC (U.S.) REQUESTS ONLY.

Millions of copies of the Christian classic book, The Divine Plan of the Ages have been printed and circulated throughout the world in over thirty languages. It has brought joy and peace to the hearts of countless readers as they came to understand that our great Creator is a God of love who has designed a plan that will ultimately bless every man, woman and child that has ever lived!

Our new booklet "God's Grand Plan of the Ages" captures the highlights of the more comprehensive book The Divine Plan of the Ages. Though brief in nature, this 96-page booklet shares a satisfying explanation of age-old questions: Why does a God of love permit the evil we see in the world? Why are there tsunamis and earthquakes that kill thousands—and wars that kill millions? Why must we experience pain, heartache and finally death? When will God's Kingdom come and His will be "done on earth as it is in heaven?"

"God's Grand Plan of the Ages" also covers the signs of the "Time of the End" prophecied in the book of Daniel (Daniel 12:1-4). Daniel's predicition that knowledge would be increased is happening before our very eyes as we see the Brain Age coming in at an unprecedented rate. Though technology has been a blessing in many ways, man's selfishness and greed is also leading the world to an ever increasing "time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation." What a comfort to know, that this trouble is a prophetic sign indicating that we are on the brink of the "Golden Age" that mankind has longed for since the dawn of history! God's Kingdom will be more wonderful, more glorious, more all encompassing, than all the dreams of philosophers, poets and sages.

  • There will be a world of peace (Psalm 46:9)
  • The heal ing of all the defects of humanity (Isa iah 35:5,6)
  • Moral integrity will be planted in every heart (Jeremiah 31:33)
  • All the dead of past ages will be raised to life again (1 Cor. 15:22)
  • Sorrow, pain, tears and death itself will cease (Revelation 21:4)

"No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived, what God has prepared for those who love him" (1 Corinthians 2:9)

We hope you will receive a blessing from reading this booklet. We also recommend reading The Divine Plan of the Ages, available FREE on a DVD offered on the back of the  booklet. It is but the first book in a series of six that covers every major doctrine of the Bible as a topical study with a harmony that is unprecedented in Christian literature.

After Armageddon... God's Kingdom

The trouble in the world seems to be gathering momentum. Television, radio and newspapers fill our minds almost daily with catastrophic events happening throughout the world. The world is being plagued with terrorist attacks. Wars are fought not against conventional armies, but suicide terrorists. Who can forget the tragic collapse of the Twin Towers on 9/11 when thousands of innocent people lost their lives because of a handful of terrorists? Nations are worried that terrorists or radical governmentsmight acquire a nuclear weapon to destroy their enemies ina nuclear holocaust. Earthquakes are increasing at an alarming rate all around the world. These, in turn, have produced heart-wrenching scenes of Tsunamis wiping away entire cities and tens of thousands of lives. Throughout the World, people subjected to poverty with their rights oppressed, rise up in revolt against corrupt leaders and governments. In these catastrophic events and increasing threats, media news anchors use the term “Armageddon” ever more frequently. People wonder if all this trouble indicates that we are approaching the “Armageddon” of the Book of Revelation. Read more... (PDF)
