Preface

 

 

 

The subject of this book is not commonly taught or preached throughout the Christian world. If one were to take a survey of what interests the Lordís people the most, one would definitely discover that the purpose and plan of the eons is not on the list of the top 20, or even the top 100 of the hottest subjects on the minds of Christians, including those who teach or preach.

 

And yet, Godís purpose and the plan that He is carrying out in, through and by His Son, who makes the eons, is one of the most vital matters to all mankind, not just to believers.

 

It is a very sad commentary on the ecclesia of our day that so few understand this vital subject, which speaks of the very heartbeat of Godís love for all mankind created to be in the image of His Son. God is love, and His purpose and plan speak volumes of His love.

 

Now, Volume 1 of The Purpose and Plan of the Eons presents a detailed overview of Godís plan to restore and reconcile the whole creation, including every single per≠son ever born of Adamís race, for God is the Savior of all mankind and wills that all mankind be saved.

 

God has predestined all mankind to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth, to be conformed to the image of Godís Son, the Lord Jesus Christ; but not all are predestined to come into glory at the same time, or in the same manner. Some must wait until the consummation of the eons. However, regardless of the time and manner, there is only one Way to come into glory, and that is through Jesus, who is the only Way into the Kingdom of God in the oncoming eons, which are called the eons of the eons.

 

Godís purpose is to become All in all in His entire creation. The fulfillment of the plan to bring All to God has been entrusted to His Son, who is to head up all until He has subjected all to Himself, and the last enemy, death, has been abolished. At the consumma≠tion of the eons, when He is fully all and in all, Jesus, the Son of God, will deliver the Kingdom of God to the God and Father of All.

 

I pray that what is contained in this book will challenge you to reexamine your doctrine and, perhaps, your understanding of Godís divine purpose and plan. Challenge is good! We need to be challenged to see why we believe as we do. Are we holding to the traditions of men that have veered off course, or are we holding to the truth of Godís word? For those who have never considered or been taught on this matter, or those who have sensed that there is far more to Godís purpose, or even those who enjoy being challengedÖ.

 

May the eyes of your heart be enlightened!

 

 

In all wisdom and insight He made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His kind intention which He purposed in Him with a view to an administration suitable to the fullness of the times,

that is,

 

the summing up of all things in Christ,

things in the heavens and things on the earth.
