And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. - Rom 13:11
God knew from the very beginning that man had the potential to sin. Sin was possible because God gave man a free will. God set in motion a plan which would result in the restoration of the whole creation through the work of the cross. God planned the exact timing of each event within His plan:
Ø When the time was right God sent his Son.
Ø When the time was right Jesus gave his life as a sacrifice for sin.
Ø When the time was right God raised him up from the dead and showed him to faithful men.
Ø When the time was right Jesus ascended into heaven and sent the Holy Spirit to his disciples.
Ø When the time was right they went out in the power of the Holy Spirit and preached the Gospel.
Ø When the time is right Jesus will return.
Ø When the time is right God will create the new heaven and earth.
God knows all things and has all things perfectly planned.
For the moment he is holding all things until the end by his power. (2 Peter 3:7).
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
