END OF THE TIMES OF THE GENTILES

Along with the end of the Antichrist, the tribulation, and

the purification of the Jews, the time of the Gentiles also comes

to an end. Their existence began in 606 B.C. when, after the

Jews fell into idolatry, King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon carried

them into a 70-year captivity. Since then, God has permitted

43.

Christ remarked about these times:

“Jerusalem will be

trampled on by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are

fulfilled”

(Luke 21:24).

the multitudes gather (for the Battle of Armageddon) in the

valley of decision; and at the time that the sun and moon are

darkened (Joel 3:14-15). At the time the sun and moon are

darkened, the Son of Man (the Messiah or Christ) comes in

great glory (Matt. 24:29-30). Therefore, the Day of the Lord

(That Day) begins at Christ’s return. This end “day,” or Day of

the Lord, is 1,000 years in duration. At its beginning it ends

this present age; at its end, it ends the Millennial Age or Day;

consequently ending two ages. The future end (1,000 years

plus) is spoken of by Peter,

“But the day of the Lord will come
