and in the morning, ‘Today it will be stormy, for the sky is red and overcast.’ You know how to interpret the appearance of the sky, but you cannot interpret the signs of the times.
Ever since God created the heavens and the earth, He has been carrying out history with mankind at the right time without delaying even one second.
It was prophesied in the Bible that God would come to the Jewish nation. The Jews waited, and when the right time came, God came and took action through the body of Jesus. However, without listening to Jesus, they rejected and killed Him, and many remain ignorant of the Savior even to this day and are still waiting for God to come. They’re unable to know because they failed to do their missions and responsibilities of faith.
The Spirit Works through the Body
In the physical world, the body does things. In the spiritual word, the spirit takes action. The body cannot go to the spiritual world, so it can’t do anything there. That’s why at every pertinent time, God comes through the physical body of the appropriate person of that time period.
During the time of the Old Testament, God said He would come. Then Moses came and led the Israelites out of Egypt: God commanded Moses and used his body as His own and carried out the history of salvation by freeing the enslaved Israelites at the right time (Gen 15:13). At the time of the prophets also, God said He would come and help but used the prophets as His body and helped the Jews through them. During the time of the kings, God used David and Solomon. He used each king at each time. Through them, God came, helped, and led the Israelites to victory in wars.
God Unbinds Those Who Are Bound Through His Body
At the First Coming, God came through Jesus and unbound everyone who believed in and followed Him from the things that had bound them for 4000 years as servants. Those who believed in and followed Jesus lived as sons and daughters of God. In this way, even if God’s side faces difficulties, tribulations, and persecution, when the right time comes, God goes on to fulfill everything according to His Will.
The Old Testament is like the time when the Israelites were living as servants in Egypt. The time of the Desert of Zin is when they escaped from being Egyptian slaves. It is like the time of the New Testament when people believed in and followed Jesus after escaping from the domain of servants.
The time of Joshua when people entered the blessed land of Canaan is like the time period of the Second Coming when Jesus returns for His bride (Rev 19:7) and liberates them from the domain of children.
The One chosen as God’s body can only come when God sends Him. When the right time comes, God surely fulfills His Will through His body. Human beings cannot delay God’s history even by one second.
