Preface

 

 

 

We could state without much contradiction or disagreement that the purpose of the eons (ages) is not on the list of the top ten of the hottest subjects talked about amongst Christians, taught in Sunday school or vacation Bible schools, or preached from the pulpits of Christendom. This is not to state that it is totally absent, for there are some who see Godís purpose and plan, even if some who do see it call it Godís eternal purpose. However, it is safe to state that many things are discussed, preached and taught in our day; but seldom do we hear that God has a purpose and a plan that He is carrying out in, through and by His Son, who makes the eons.

 

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.

 

Volume 1 of The Purpose and Plan of the Eons presented 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, 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 Godís Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, 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 plan of bringing All to God has been given 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.

 

Now, Volume 2 is devoted to breaking up some of the hardened traditions of Christendom that pose the greatest hindrances to seeing, let alone understanding, the purpose and plan of the eons. These hindrances pertain to the true meaning of life and death, along with related topics, such as sheol, hades, gehenna, hell, judg≠ment, resurrection, transfiguration and immortality. Only through a proper under≠standing of these essential matters do we understand the wisdom of God in the restoration and reconciliation of all, for without this understanding, it is safe to state that one will have a difficult time comprehending and appreciating the truth of Godís purpose and plan.

 

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.
