History Comes into Focus
| Paul called it the
"fullness of the time" (Gal. 4: 4). He simply meant that all the
things God had foretold through His prophets and with His promises finally
came to pass with the coming of Christ. Everything that had gone before
pointed to the coming of Christ and His kingdom and from the day of
Pentecost even until the present everything points back to that notable
day of the Lord when the types, shadows, figures presented in the Old
Testament and under former ages came to fruition. Pentecost puts history
The wonderful plan God designed and delivered for the salvation of man from before the beginning of the world became a reality when Peter preached that first gospel sermon exalting Christ and telling men how to take advantage of what the Lord's only begotten Son had accomplished.
Today we live subject to that glorious system. How blessed we are we can be saved. The matter before each one is whether we will obey.
