References: Daniel 12Scripture reveals there will be a seventy-five day period between the end of the Tribulation and the establishing of the Kingdom. As God has promised, this kingdom will be physical, literal, and earthly. It will be ruled over by Jesus Christ and populated by Jewish and Gentile believers. Unbelieving Jews who survived the Tribulation will be taken to judgment. Those left behind will be ready for Christ's return and enter the kingdom with Him. Christ also addressed His return with Gentiles of all nations foretelling that those who survive the Tribulation will also be called into account. A determining factor in their judgment will be their works of righteousness done during this period. The works receiving particular attention will involve their treatment of believing Jews, who will undergo tremendous persecution during this period.
The grace of God, past, present, and future is the believer's blessed hope. The grace of God has appeared in the person and work of Jesus Christ. That grace in the past provided salvation of sinners who will come to God by faith alone, in Christ alone. The grace of God for the present, "now age" teaches and enables saved sinners to live consistent with their new character. Being so taught the believer lives a life of worship and obedience anticipating the future grace of God to reappear in the person of Jesus Christ. When He does, He will complete the transformation of believer's lives into perfect conformity with His character. The world may be falling apart but our great God and Savior is coming again. With that great hope we, who have been saved by the grace of His first appearing, endure, persevere, and rejoice, as we await His glorious return.
