The next age to be introduced, the one we are about ready to enter, is the Kingdom age,
or Millennium. But it is not the last age. In fact, there are many ages stretching out ahead
of us, and the things God has planned for us are beyond our comprehension. Twice in
scripture (Psalms 105:8 and 1 Chronicles 16:15), we are told that God made a covenant
with Abraham for 1,000 generations. Not 1,000 years, but 1,000 generations. Now a
Bible generation is 40 years, and in the 4,000 years since Abraham we have only had 100
generations, which leaves 900 generations to fulfill the promise of God to Abraham. It
doesn’t take long to figure out how many years that is going to take.
Reading in Ephesians 2:4-7ı “But God who is rich in mercy, for his great love
wherewith he loved usı hath raised us up together and made us sit together in heavenly
places in Christ Jesus; that in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his
grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.” In the ROTHERHAM translation
it states: “that he might point out in the oncoming ages the surpassing riches of his favor
in graciousness upon us in Christ Jesus”. And the WUEST expanded translation says that
God has “raised us with Him and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ
Jesus, in order that He might exhibit for His own glory in the ages that will pile
themselves one upon another in continuous succession, the surpassing wealth of His
grace in kindness to us in Christ Jesus”. The NEW ENGLISH BIBLE says: “and in union
with Christ Jesus he raised us up and enthroned us with him in the heavenly realms, so
that he might display in the ages to come how immense are the resources of his grace,
and how great his kindness to us in Christ Jesus.” Notice, please, that there is more than
one age ahead of us, and that God has planned them so that He can show His kindness to
us in Christ Jesus. You don’t deserve it, nor do I. This is the wealth of His grace
manifested. How good is our God! How immense are the resources of His grace! 24.
