When the apostles wrote of “the last days,” it’s clear that they thought they were living in them. Given that we are looking back on those days some two thousand years later, it is clear that they did not mean “the last days of the human race.” What, then, did they mean?
They meant the last days of Israel. The last days of the church. And the last days of the human race as it had been known up to that time. For in the twinkling of an eye, the kingdom of God would come and the New Covenant would be eternally established. That new covenant would mean a new spirit deep in the heart of every human being (1 Corinthians 15:45). God’s law would be written on every heart (Jeremiah 31:31-34 and Hebrews 8:8-12). Every person would benefit from God’s law being instinctive to them (Romans 2:14-16). There would no longer be any distinction between Jew and Gentile (Colossians 3:11).
Those last days are long since over. We live in that eternal kingdom which prophets, apostles, and the Lord Himself all prophesied. Let us seek the King in everything we do. He is worthy!
