Verses:

Joel 3:11 “Hurry and come, all you surrounding nations, and be gathered. There cause Your mighty ones to descend, O Jehovah!”

 

Excerpts:

The Bible is a record of the human history and the divine history. The former is like an outward shell, and the latter, like the kernel within the shell. The divine history began in eternity past with the eternal God and His eternal economy. It continues with Christ’s incarnation; His death, burial, and resurrection for the spreading of God’s redemption and salvation to all the nations on earth; His pouring out of the consummated Spirit to produce the church as the corporate expression of the Triune God; His second coming as the Desire of nations and as the Sun of righteousness; His coming with His overcomers as His army to defeat Antichrist and his army; and His reigning in Zion in the thousand-year kingdom. Eventually, the kingdom will consummate in the New Jerusalem in the new heaven and the new earth for eternity. The New Jerusalem will be the ultimate, the consummate, step of God’s history.

 

We all were born in the human history, but we have been regenerated in the divine history. Now we need to ask ourselves this question: Are we living in the divine history, or are we living merely in the human history? In the church life God’s history is our history. God and we have one history, the divine history.

 

With the divine history there is the new creation—the new man with a new heart, a new spirit, a new life, a new nature, a new history, and a new consummation. We praise the Lord that we are in the divine history, experiencing and enjoying the mysterious, divine things.
