Prophecy for Israel and the Mystery Church along the time triad

Dr. Mike Johnston

The Time Triad Division

Prophecy and Mystery occupy three separate but contiguous time-periods that involve both Israel and the Body of Christ that are revealed in Ephesians by Paul,

“That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus … Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands; That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world: But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ” (excerpted from Ephesians 2:7-13).

Here’s the brief outline:

1. Time Past (Eph. 2:11-12) – Genesis through Acts (transitional) – the Law and the Prophets (Matthew 5:17; 11:13; Acts 3:24) – Profitable for us, NOT personally to us!

The first part of the extended Prophecy Program is for the nation Israel and includes her history (past) as well as her future (ages to come). This period concluded Daniel’s 69th week (Dan. 9:24-26) when Israel rejected the King and His kingdom and lapsed into a stupor of spiritual blindness (Romans 11:7,, 25).

2. “But now” (Eph. 2:13) – Romans through Philemon – our Apostle Paul (Romans 11:13; Galatians 2:7-9) – Profitable for us AND personally to us!

The Mystery Program is for the church Body of Christ exclusive of the nation Israel. This is a provisional period during Israel’s blindness between Daniel’s 69th and 70th that will end with the Rapture of the church when the “fulness of the Gentiles be come in” (Rom. 11:25) and “he who now letteth … be taken out of the way” (2 Thessalonians 2:6-7).

3. “Ages to come” (Eph. 2:7) – Hebrews (transitional) through Revelation – the Prophets, and Peter, James, and John (Galatians 2:7-9) – Profitable for us, NOT personally to us!

The final part of the Prophecy Program for Israel scheduled on the prophecy timeline calendar Daniel provided (Danial 9:24-27). Though stopped at the 70th week, it will resume after the removal of the Body of Christ. Israel’s Tribulation was outlined by Christ to Peter, James, John, and Andrew (Mark 13:3) – all ministers to the circumcision. To avoid confusion about the participants in Israel’s Tribulation, Jesus linked it to Daniel’s seventieth week (Daniel 9:24-27; Matthew 24:15) that must be fulfilled by Israel. According to the Lord, Israel’s Tribulation culminates in her rescue and redemption at the Revelation of her Messiah King to inaugurate His kingdom in Jerusalem immediately after (Zechariah 14; Matthew 24 and 25; Revelation 6-20).
