The Ages Within

Wow. I just read one of the most profound articles. If you can understand the truth that what is without you is also within you than you will be blown away with this truth, just as I was. From J. Eby Preston, a man who I have the utmost respect for:

God has plenty of time. His plan is the plan of the ages. Consider how many ages the Lord’s people have passed through since the day Adam and Eve were driven from Eden! God’s progressive purpose began ages ago, and will extend into vast ages yet unborn. In one sense each of us is a microcosm within the macrocosm. There are ages within us. I lived a Pentecostal age, and it ended. I lived out a Latter Rain age, and it ended. I lived out an Anglo-Israel age, and that ended too. I lived out an Apocalyptic age, and God took that heaven and rolled it up within myself. Everyone of us has lived ages within ourselves, according to God’s plan of the ages. All creation will come the same way, not necessarily with identical ages, but they will grow experientially into God from glory to glory, and God has plenty of time! God has brought us from Abraham to the Manchild in our brief lifetime, for the ages are within us.

You can read the rest here.
I'm sorry but WOW~! That so made sense to me.

Life is a series of answers. You just have to ask the right questions.

Whatever is without - is also within.

The kingdom of God is within you. That is the beginning of your search.

Lots of love my friends~

I was obsessed with Mr. Preston when I first discovered "eternal" has been mistranslated in many places in the bible; most importantly the passages referencing judgment.I'm thankful for the many new ways he helped me see scripture, especially revelations. That's why it hurt so bad when one of his articles bashed gay people. I haven't read a single thing of his since, but I sure hope that he's reconsidered his stance on that issue.
