Does the term “Gentiles” refer to all non-Jews or is that just the lie we’ve been sold to cover up the truth? Who were the Gentiles, and where are they now? What role do they play in Bible prophecy, and where are we at on the prophetic countdown clock?
Believe it or not, the Bible tells us exactly who the Gentiles are, where they are, and what’s about to happen when their time is up. Unfortunately, it is too often ignored. We’re about to get into some deep and controversial but pure Biblical truth, in this enlightening audiobook.
There were two Bible verses that really inspired me to look into who the Gentiles are, according the Bible. I’ve heard many people teach on these verses, and I couldn’t shake the feeling that the in-formation was just being repeated, but not actually researched (myself included).
Here are the verses:
“And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.” (Luke 21:24)
“For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles be come in.” (Romans 11:25)
In verse one, we see that Jerusalem will be trodden down by Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles is fulfilled or completed. This is what I get from the context of verse one. But was the times of the Gentiles really fulfilled in 1967 during the Six Days War, or are we still looking at the Gentile occupation of Jerusalem?
In verse two, we see that the partial blindness of Israel is only temporary and will be lifted after the fullness of the Gentiles comes in. What does that really mean, and what specifically would the blindness of Israel encompass?
Whatever the answers to these questions are, they do seem to be connected. In Luke's gospel, Christ connects the fulfillment of the time of the Gentiles to the end of the age. That leads us to the first big question: Has the time of the Gentiles been fulfilled?
Break out your pens, papers, styluses, etc, and let’s get down to some good ol’ intense Bible study. In order to answer all of the above questions, we first need to figure out who the Gentiles are.
