Letís just say for the time being that many will be filled with wonder and amazement when all walk in newness of life; turning from their wicked ways.

Depends if it is for Israel, or for all, as you are "appearing" to presuppose into it. The restoration of Israel is a final consummating event, that ushers in, the New Heavens and Earth. It is the people of God, who are restored, and who is the subject of Acts 3.

How do you fit in "for the time being" as part of this topic?

It is NOT just about Israel! And it is NOT
just about the Gentiles! It is about the UNIVERSE! Things in HEAVEN and EARTH!


The Jews were ONLY focused on themselves. The
Gentiles have mostly been focused on themselves. They FORGET that the ENTIRE
creation (ALL created things) are waiting for the manifestation of the sons of
God. It is MUCH, MUCH bigger than just a couple of people here and
there!!

Here are MANY Old Testament
verses that hint at the mystery.

GENESIS 12:3 In
you all the families of the earth shall
be blessed.


PSALM
102:19-21 The Lord looked down from his sanctuary on high, from heaven
he viewed the earth, to hear the groans of the
prisoners and release those condemned to death.

PSALM
68:18 When you ascended on high, you led captives in your train.


PSALM 86:9 All the nations you have
made will come and worship before you, 0 Lord; they will bring
glory to your name.


PSALM 66:10-12 For you, 0 God, have
proved us; You have refined us as silver is refined. You brought us into the
net; You laid affliction on our backs. You have caused men to ride over our
heads; we went through fire and water,
but You brought us out to rich fulfillment.

2 SAMUEL
14:14 For we will surely die and become like water spilled on the ground,
which cannot be gathered up again. Yet God does not take away a life; but
He devises means, so that His banished ones are not expelled from Him.


GENESIS 28:14 And thy seed shall be as the dust of
the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to
the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed. (KJV)


PSALM 145:3-17 Great
is the Lord and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom. .I will
meditate on your wonderful works. They will tell of the power of your awesome
works, and I will proclaim your great deeds. They will celebrate your abundant
goodness ... The Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in
love. The Lord is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made. All you
have made will praise you, 0 Lord ... They will tell of the glory of your
kingdom and speak of your might, so that all men may
know of your mighty acts...Your kingdom is an everlasting
kingdom, and your dominion endures through all generations. The Lord is
faithful to all his promises and loving toward all he has made. The Lord
upholds all those who fall ... The Lord is righteous in all his ways and loving
toward all he has made.

ECCLESIASTES 3:14
Everything God does will endure forever.

ISAIAH
14:24, 27 The Lord Almighty has sworn, "Surely, as I have planned, so it
will be, and as I have purposed, so it will stand"... For the Lord Almighty has
purposed, and who can thwart him? His
hand is stretched out, and who can turn it back?

ISAIAH 45:22-24
"Turn to me and be saved, all you ends of the
earth. By myself I have sworn, my mouth has uttered in all
integrity a word that will not be revoked: Before me every knee will bow; by me every tongue will swear.
They will say of me, `In the Lord alone are righteousness and strength.'" All
who have raged against him will come to him and be put to shame.



LAMENTATIONS 3:31-33 For men are not
cast off by the Lord forever. (NIV) Though he may punish
cruelly, yet he will have compassion in the fullness of his love; he does not willingly afflict or punish any mortal man.



HABAKKUK 2:14 For
the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the
waters cover the sea.

Revelation 5:13 Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on
the sea, and all that is in them, singing: "To him who sits on the
throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and
ever!"
Thank you for sharing.

"forever" literally = for the age, unto the age,
"forever and ever" = for the age(s) of the ages, or unto the age(s )of the ages

God bless.

Romans 8 (NAS)


18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us. 19 For the anxious longing of the creation waits eagerly for the revealing of the sons of God. 20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it, in **hope 21 that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. 22 For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now"

** elpis= expectation



Rev. 21
Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea. 2 And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 And I heard a loud voice from the throne, saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is among men, and He will dwell among them, and they shall be His people, and God Himself will be among them, 4 and He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.”
5 And He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” And He *said, “Write, for these words are faithful and true.” 6 Then He said to me, “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give to the one who thirsts from the spring of the water of life without cost. 7 He who overcomes will inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be My son. 8 But for the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murderers and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”


The destruction of all that is evil and sinful must take place before the restoration of all to God. The second death is a part of the process of making all things new. God's plan is to become all in all according to 1 Cor. 15. This includes the subjection of all people to Himself. There are those who are the sons of God who come to Him willingly today and they are the ones who will inherit all things. Eventually the creation is to be delivered to experience the glory of the freedom of the sons of God.


God bless
