I've been thinking alot lately about this word in the Bible...
I talk about this in the Gospelstudy radio program labeled Eph 1:10.
The word means just what it says.
Not "half" full, not "three quarters".
I can think of 3 things right off the bat:
1. Fullness of Time
"But when the FULLNESS OF TIME had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law." (Gal 4:4)
2. Fullness of God
"In Him is the FULLNESS of the Godhead, bodily." (Col 2:9)
3. Fullness of people
"Blindness in part has happened to Israel until the FULLNESS OF THE GENTILES has come in." (Rom 11:25)
It's that last one that bothers me the most.
Written down somewhere (figuratively) is a number...
A number that only God knows.
A number of all those who will believe in Jesus Christ, and receive salvation.
And I was wondering, What happens if that number is reached tomorrow?
"Strive to enter in through the narrow gate, because MANY WILL TRY to get in, and will not be able." (Luke 13:24)
Just something to think about today.
