The Prophetic Clock Has Stopped

A notable fact, commonly overlooked, is that time, in reference to Israel and the Kingdom, is temporarily stalled in the Greek Scriptures. The clock has stopped.

Yahweh did not reckon time when His people were apostate. So it is today. Time has been temporarily stalled during this period.

We find ourselves in an administration where time plays no part. Our future does not lie in the Kingdom on Earth, beneath the sun, where time is reckoned by the shadow on a dial. Above the sun is our place, among the Celestials, where there are no days or weeks or months or years with which to reckon duration. All time predictions in this administration of the secret have proven futile and false in the past, and will continue to be so in the future. Let us beware of them! …

If he, to whom the truth of this present secret administration was revealed, did not know the date, how conceited must we be if we attempt to deduce it from a revelation that is not concerned with our celestial calling! After this interval is past, and Israel is once more in view, then the clock will be started again, and the prophetic dates will be literally and accurately fulfilled. But not now.

… We have been reading this mystery [the Secret Economy] into previously revealed truth. Earlier Scriptures have been so colored by its presence that their true import is difficult to entertain.

Search the Scriptures and see: where is there any license for introducing a heavenly destiny and hope before Paul wrote Ephesians? All things shall be heavenly as to character, but this refers to position. It was a secret, not only unrevealed, but actually concealed.

Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth (II Timothy 2:15).

The Word of truth, then, has right divisions, and it must be evident that, as one cannot be a workman that needeth not to be ashamed without observing them, so any study of that Word which ignores those divisions must be in large measure profitless and confusing.

For many years this writer, along with the mass of religious people, supposed that the Bible phrase “grace and peace be unto you” was simply a beautiful, spiritual salutation. Thank God we have come to learn that it is much more than a salutation. It is an official proclamation.

Every single one of the epistles signed by Paul opens with the declaration: “Grace be unto you and peace, from God the Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.” This was the theme of the message which he, as a duly appointed ambassador, had been sent to proclaim.

The Divine Barrier

Did you know that when God called Abraham, He placed a division between his descendants and all of the rest of humanity?

It was God Himself Who established the “barrier” between Jew and Gentile, Israel and the Nations. Paul called this division a “middle wall of partition” in Ephesians 2:14. The Concordant Version calls it “the central wall of the barrier.” The Dabhar Version renders it “the middle wall of the blockage.”

When reading the Scriptures, it is vitally important that you ask yourself the simple question: Is the middle wall of partition up, or is it down?

Recognizing and answering this crucial question is an important key in following Paul’s instruction found in II Timothy 2:15 of “rightly dividing” (KJV), “correctly cutting” (CV, 1976 – 6th Edition) or “correctly partitioning” (CV, 1927 – 2nd Edition) the “Word of truth.”

It’s not until you get to the pinnacle writings of Paul – Ephesians and Colossians – that you see the barrier removed. Read these letters that reveal the Secret Administration, and enjoy God’s truth for today.

The Zenith of Man’s Day

Mans Day [I Corinthians 4:3], which is the day of man’s prominence, exaltation and glory, reaches its very zenith in this the Dispensation of the Grace of God. This began with Paul’s declaration in Acts 28:28, and since that time all men and all nations have been utterly free to walk after their own ways without any fear of immediate divine retribution. Men commit the basest of crimes, they raise their voices against God every day; yet, He does nothing except show them a love and favor that they do not deserve.

“Does not God care?” “Is He really a God of love?” These are the questions regularly asked in view of the iniquities of mankind that exact such a great toll of suffering from the human race. The answer is that He cares and He loves; yet, because of His present purpose in grace, no sin or transgression receives its just recompense of reward, but this will not always be. Man’s Day will surely come to an end, and the prayer of the Psalmist will be answered:

Arise, O Lord; let not man prevail: let the nations be judged before Thee. Put them in fear O Lord: that the nations may know themselves to be but men (Psalm 9:19-20).

Our hope and destiny are in no way contingent on the fulfillment of Hebrew prophecy for Israel. Our blessings are found primarily in Paul’s revelations for this present secret economy. While we are to walk by faith and not by perception, this after all is the highest quality of faith consistent with the highest plane of spiritual blessings among the celestials in Christ.

We should never misappropriate any part of Hebrew prophecy bearing on Israel’s eventual deliverance, such as Matthew 24, and then assume mistakenly that our deliverance is somehow determined by theirs – or theirs by ours.

Paul, in prison, wrote his last epistles, making known the subject of the special revelations he had received about the above-heavenly (epouraniois) sphere of blessings, and announcing a complete change of dispensation brought about by the temporary setting aside of Israel: no longer a chosen people, no longer any sign of the nearness of the Kingdom, no more fulfillment of the prophecies.

The Sign Gifts

(Have the Goodie read to you!)

Ever since the Apostle Paul informed the Corinthians that the sign gifts were to pass away(I Corinthians 13:8), attempts have been made by sincere people to revive them. All such efforts of courage have ended in failure and disrepute for the church at large.

Though it is true that these gifts were at one time a part of God’s program for the sign nation (1:22), they ended when God finally set His favored people aside (Acts 28:28). One will look in vain for any mention of the “sign” gifts in the epistles of Paul written after the “Acts” period.

It is sometimes suggested that if believers today were as spiritual as they should be, gifts would abound. This, we submit, is not so. Of all of the churches to whom the apostle wrote, the Corinthians were the most un-spiritual. They were contentious (I Corinthians 1:11); they permitted fornication in their midst (5:1); brother went to law against a brother (6:1-8); and they were disorderly at the Lord’s Table (11:17-22).

Small wonder that he writes to them,

And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ (I Corinthians 3:1).

Yet, in spite of all of this carnality, they had the sign gifts in abundance (chapters 12, 14). Surely it was not because they were spiritual.
