Rowing Backward into the Future

Rowing Backward into the Future

Joseph Herrin (12-31-2011) I have concluded that my vision is much better in hindsight than it is at gazing into the future. There is an interesting fact relating to how the ancient Hebrews understood the concept of time. To the Hebrews the future was depicted as behind a person’s back, while the...

Woman, the Glory of Man – The Honored Servant

The Honored Servant The role of the woman in bringing forth One who would save mankind was foretold by God immediately after man fell into sin.

God’s Plan of the Ages – Addendum

God’s Plan of the Ages – Addendum

Some Who Held This View Due to the doctrine of the reconciliation of all things rarely being taught in the churches today, many Christians have mistakenly assumed that it must be a new teaching. Some have even asked me if I am the only one who believes and teaches these things. I am very happy to...

God’s Plan of the Ages – A Final Note

God’s Plan of the Ages – A Final Note

Joseph Herrin (11-24-2011) It is my hope that the revision of this book will prove effectual in leading those who seek truth to the discovery of Yahweh’s magnificent plan of the ages. It is not possible in any writing to answer every question that could be raised. To write an exhaustive teaching...

God’s Plan of the Ages – The Ages of the Earth

God’s Plan of the Ages – The Ages of the Earth

Joseph Herrin (11-23-2011) Yahweh established a plan for the creation that encompasses a determined number of ages. This truth is taught in the Bible, but given little attention by Christians today. The church has very little understanding of the ages of the earth. Our world has known many...

God’s Plan of the Ages – What is Aionian Life?

God’s Plan of the Ages – What is Aionian Life?

Joseph Herrin (11-22-2011) Note: in this chapter I am using the word “aionian” as a transliteration of the Greek word that is often interpreted as “eternal” in the most popular English Bibles. Rather than translating the word as “age-abiding,” “age-lasting,” or “age-during” as some literal...

God’s Plan of the Ages – Unquenchable Fire

God’s Plan of the Ages – Unquenchable Fire

Joseph Herrin (11-21-2011) There is a curious expression used by Christ that has led many Christians to conclude that Yahshua taught that hell will be forever. In the Gospel of Mark we find Yahshua repeating the words, “Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.” Mark 9:43-48 And if...

God’s Plan of the Ages – Mythology and the Bible

Joseph Herrin (11-17-2011) In the preceding chapters of this book I have labored to show forth through the Scriptures Yahweh’s plan to reconcile all things in the creation to Himself through Christ.

God’s Plan of the Ages – The Harvest Allegory

God’s Plan of the Ages – The Harvest Allegory

Joseph Herrin (11-16-2011) Before Yahweh ever began to form the creation, He had fully worked out the plan of the ages from the beginning to the end. Everything that exists, or will exist; every event that has occurred, and is yet to transpire, was planned before the creation began. Isaiah 14:24...

God’s Plan of the Ages – The Firstborn

God’s Plan of the Ages – The Firstborn

Joseph Herrin (11-15-2011) As we continue to lay the foundations for understanding God’s plan of the ages, the topic of sonship needs to be examined. Yahweh created man because He desired to have sons. One of the most common titles used to refer to God in the Bible is Father. In approximately 270...

God’s Plan of the Ages – The Soul that Sins Must Die

God’s Plan of the Ages – The Soul that Sins Must Die

Joseph Herrin (11-11-2011) Death stands between every man and an inheritance in Christ, even as the Jordan River stood between the Israelites and their inheritance in the land of Canaan. We know that every man experiences a physical death of his body. It is not this death that makes a person a...

God’s Plan of the Ages – Lord of the Living and the Dead

Joseph Herrin (11-06-2011) A person cannot properly understand Yahweh’s plan of the ages without a clear understanding of the pattern of death, burial and resurrection. The judgments of God, whether it be the death of sinners in past ages, the cross in this age, or the lake of fire which is the...

God’s Plan of the Ages – Crossing the Jordan

God’s Plan of the Ages – Crossing the Jordan

Joseph Herrin (11-01-2011) Most Christians have a very fuzzy understanding of the resurrections of man. Many believers imagine that there will be only one resurrection of the dead. The types and shadows of the Old Testament that Yahweh ordained to show forth truth pertaining to the resurrections...

God’s Plan of the Ages – The Merciful Covering

Joseph Herrin (10-30-2011) I appreciate the patience of those who are giving attention to this book. I realize that there are many questions in the minds of the saints, and many Scriptures they would like to have explained that appear to contradict those truths being shared. I have chosen to...

God’s Plan of the Ages – All in All

Joseph Herrin (10-29-2011) Yahweh’s plan of the ages is truly marvelous.
