Timeline of God Dealing With the Church, the Jews and the Nations

Recent Additions to Spirit and Truth Ministries Web Site

October 21, 2023 added a couple sections about the ironic result of greater participation of haredi or ultra-orthodox Jews in the Israeli Army and their counter-offensive against Hamas and greater harmony or decreased division at least temporarily in Israeli society as a result of the Islamic terrorist group Hamas' barbaric attack against Israeli and guests in a music concert or who were living in communities on the Israeli side but near the Hamas run Gaza Strip based on an article in the Jerusalem Post in web page The Israeli Palestinian Conflict Part 14 accessible through web page The Israeli Palestinian Conflict in web section Israel and Bible Prophecy at link: Israeli Palestinian Conflict Part 14

November 20, 2023 added a section about a more careful and detailed comparison of people group nations within political nations on maps of The Joshua Project web site to Noah nation maps on the Dr. Aschmann's Middle East area in his Genesis 10 Table of Nations and Y Chromosomal DNA internet article to better determine most likely still completely unreached Noah nations that need to still be reached by enabling some of their people to trust in Jesus onto salvation to complete the Great Commission with these nations all being in southern Arabia or partly descended from the Canaanites in the wider Middle East such as Israel, the West Bank (or Judeae and Samaria) and Lebanon on web page Some of the Unreached Noah Nations Based on Mr. Aschmann of Genesis 10 Table of Nations in web section The Church and Bible Prophecy and at link Some of 70 Nations, Peoples and Languages from Noah Based on Wycliffe Missionary Richard Aschmann

December 11, 2023 added a couple sections about a march called The March of the Maccabees by a small group of zealous nationalistic and Jewish Temple Mount access support groups on December 7th, the first day of Hannukah to demand more or even full Jewish rights over The Temple Mount and removing the Islamic Waqf authority that supports Muslim rights on the Temple Mount through the Damascus Gate to the Western Wall plaza in the Old City of Jerusalem with heavy Jerusalem police guard and restrictions as a further sign of gathering Jewish zeal or dedication to rebuild the Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem and likely soon bring about the pre-tribulation rapture or catching up to heaven with Jesus of all the true Church or all true Christians in web page The Third or Tribulation Temple in web section Israel and Bible Prophecy at link: Third or Tribulation Temple

December 29, 2023 added alternate and more up-to-date romanized Arab versions of names of some of the regions in Yemen and Saudi Arabia that preserve the names of some of the Joktan Genesis 10 Noah nations names in web page Table of Least Reached Noah Nations at link: Table of Least Evangelized Noah Nations

January 10, 2024 added some sections supporting the idea that Yemen in southern Arabia, especially the western part of the nation, could be both the last holdout area to complete the Great Commission to reach some people of every Noah nation to salvation in Jesus through the Church through some reaching some likely so far not yet reached Noah nations of Genesis 10 there and that Yemen especially western Yemen could be one of the last areas to turn from war now by the Houthi rebels on shipping in the Red Sea to a wider Middle East peace, if the false peace does extend that far, of the Antichrist that will allow Israel to rebuild their Jewish Temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem right after the rapture of the complete of all nations Church or chosen heavenly or spiritual people of God through Jesus Christ to heaven all very soon in web page Table of Least Reached Nations in web section Church and Bible Prophecy at link: Table of Least Evangelized Noah Nations

January 31, 2024 added the web site and map of the Middle East including Arabia with placement of Genesis 10 Noah Nations of Bible teacher and former Wycliffe Bible Translators missionary Richard Aschmann. This map of the Middle East including Noah nations including in Arabia and what is now Saudi Arabia, Oman and Yemen provides an illustrated indication of where I believe the most and perhaps still completely unreached Genesis 10 Noah nation people groups are located and that still need to be reached by leading some of their members to trust in the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Saviour to complete the true Church of God's Son the Lord Jesus Christ to be composed of all nations and then I believe bring about the rapture of the then complete Church to heaven to be with Jesus and God the Father in our eternal abodes or mansion in the Father's house there. Then the 7 year tribulation or 70th week of Daniel will start with the Antichrist making a peace agreement with Israel and other nations that will include allowing Israel to rebuild its temple on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem where the previous Solomon's (1st) and Zerubabel's and then Herod's (all 2nd) temple were located. By the end of the 7 year tribulation every one on earth of all 70 Noah nations will have heard the saving gospel of God through His Son Jesus Christ and there will be a further multitude saved by faith in Jesus and HIs death and resurrection from all nations by the witness of the 144,000 Jewish witnesses for Jesus who will be the main witnesses of God through Jesus in the 7 year tribulation as in Revelation 7 and 14. One can also compare this additional map of the Noah nations in the Middle East including in Yemen and other parts of Arabia with the maps I have already posted there of the political divisions and religious control areas of Yemen, including that area that are controlled by the Iran allied Houthis who are causing a big disruption on international Red Sea shipping to see that any breakthrough of the gospel of Jesus in Yemen including in the Houthi area or a peace agreement with Israel would lead to much reduced disruption by the Houthis on international shipping trade through the Red Sea. This additional map and mention of the web site of Mr. Richard Aschmann is on the web page Table of Least Evangelized Noah Nations in web section Church and Bible Prophecy at link: Table of Least Evangelized Noah Nations

March 21-22, 2024 added another section and link of and in reference to a video of a Bible teacher named Brad Smith with message called Worldview 70 Nations partly based on the teaching of the late Dr. Michael Heiser that references to God (Elohim) overseeing the 70 Genesis 10 Noah nations from just after the flood of Noah to the time of the Second Coming of Jesus are at least as likely to be references to the divine council (God (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) and 70 or a multiple of 70 created spirits (angels or demons)) as to the divine trinity (God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit) that oversee the 70 nations of the world or even other parts of the created world such as the created heaven or earth but that it is only the divine trinity that is referred to as God (Elohim) when applied to His creating man in His image as in Genesis 1:26-28 or in other creative acts elsewhere in Genesis 1 or other parts of the Bible. This means that it could be a reference to God and the divine council even in Genesis 11 when God (Elohim) inspects what man was doing in building the tower of babel and then confused human speech which could be an overseeing action rather than strictly a creative act like those referred to of God doing at creation in the 1st creation week in Genesis 1 which I believe included the creation of spirits such as angels and demons on the first day when light was created. For this reference to the video by Bible teacher Brad Smith of First Christian Church of Bristol, Virginia partly based on Bible teacher Dr. Michael Heiser click on the link in the following Church and Bible Prophecy section of the my home page.

March 26-27 added some other sections about the fuller collection of the names in the Bible and in the Pushtu language of the subtribes of the Pathan or Pushtun people of Afghanistan and Pakistan that are likely quite a few of the so-called lost 10 tribes of Israel that were brought into exile by Assyria around 720 BC and who will return to Israel in the last days including more after the very soon coming rapture or catching up to the Church and then in the 7 year tribulation more complete restoration of both Israel (the northern 10 tribes) and Judah (the southern 2 tribes) of Israel before the 2nd coming of Jesus or Y'Shua with the true Church from heaven to Earth at the end of the tribulation to set up God's visible Kingdom over all the Earth when He reigns from Jerusalem through restored Israel with the saved of the nations including from Isaiah 27 and Jeremiah 3 in web page The Restoration of Israel in web section Israel and Bible prophecy at link: Restoration of Israel

May 15, 2024 added two paragraphs about the recent operation by Israel in Rafah, the Gaza Strip to take over the Rafah crossing to the Egyptian Sinai and obstruct Hamas' main link to the outside world and of Israel against specific military targets like rocket launchers, military tunnels and Hamas military members in East Rafah in Israel's efforts to defeat the Islamic terrorist group Hamas' operations and control in the Gaza Strip and Hamas' threat to use the Gaza Strip as a base to carry out attacks against Jews or other residents of Israel and some of the international pressure related to these matters in web page The Israel Palestinian Conflict Part 14 in web section Israel Bible Prophecy at link: Israeli Palestinian Conflict Part 14

Bible Prophecy and the Church

The Church (literally the called out (of the world) ones) is the people from every nation and from the Jews that the LORD or God the Father is calling out to be a special eternal people for His Son the Lord Jesus Christ. All people in the true Church have personally trusted in Jesus Christ that He is God's only begotten Son and that He died for us and our sins and rose from the dead to give us new life. When we do this we enter a personal relationship with God Himself including Jesus and become indwelt, led and taught by His Holy Spirit.

The Church Age or Dispensation began at Pentecost in about 30 AD and is almost at its completion point when there will be members of the Church from all 70 Genesis 10 from Noah and his three sons nations, peoples or people groups, languages and all tribes. Then the Church will be raptured or caught up to Heaven with new spiritual or heavenly bodies for all its members to our homes in Heaven. The Church will also have a part in ruling Earth in the Millennial Kingdom of the Messiah - Jesus and a glorious eternal future. If you are not part of it already I hope you join us while they is still the little remaining time in this Age of Grace, the Church Age or the Age of the Holy Spirit. This can be done by praying to God in Jesus' name to personally receive Jesus as your Lord and Saviour from your sins.

The Devil in the Church Age

Currently and throughout current Church Age, one of the important aspects of the true Church and true Christian witness is to rightly divide God's word the Holy Bible including to study or teach God's word from a mostly literal and in context or exegesis intepretation rather than trying to study or teach from a substantially non-biblical perspective where one significantly tries to read non-Christian or out of context ideas into one's interpretation of a bible passage. This is usually associated with the symbolic or allegorical or eisegesis interpretation of the Bible. This type of interpreation began in earnest in Church history with efforts of the Hellenized Jewish teacher Philo in the 1st century and then the very pro-Greek philosophy church father Origen in the 3rd century to revise Bible interpretation from a literal perspective to one that would appeal to followers of Greek or Roman philosophy more and bring them into the professing Church. For more on this topic view my web site about the Teaching of the Word of God to Believers in the Church Age below.

12 Teaching of God's Word to Believers in the Church Age

A good introductory level devotional Bible to read through the Bible - the word of God in one year in a consecutive basis or in the usual order of the books is the Daily Walk Bible. The devotions in this Daily Walk Bible are in the order in the Christian Bible from Genesis to Revelation and I heartily recommend the use of the Daily Walk Bible. It is available in either the King James Version or the New International Version and is available from Amazon Books online. It is also available from at least some Christian bookstores in Canada and probably in the US or some other places to order through them or in Canada. The Daily Walk Bible is also available in the secular bookstore chain Chapters Indigo to order at their bricks and mortar stores including Coles or online through their website.

This Daily Walk Bible features at the back of it the Bible reading plan to read through the whole Bible in one year. However one feature lacking in this Bible edition is any Bible maps. At the beginning of each day's reading there is a chapter by chapter outline and brief summary. Each day's reading of usually a couple or several chapters includes one or more academic or spiritual insight notes a practical Daily Walk section with application from the day's reading for Christian living. This devotional Bible is good in that it combines emphasis on evangelism and practical Christian living with some academic notes on the background of the day's reading. The background notes are from a primarily literal and in context basis including generally rightly giving a distinction between the true Church and Israel. The true Church is God's chosen spiritual or heavenly people being called out to God from all nations in this present Church Age or Age of Grace from Pentecost 2000 years ago to the very soon coming pre-tribulation rapture to heaven of the complete true Church. This distinction of the true Church is in contrast to God's chosen earthly or physical people Israel that God focuses on on earth and for the believing remnant of them to be with God in heaven from the time of Abraham around 2000 BC to the cruxifiction of the Lord Jesus Christ (Messiah). According to a literal interpretation of the Bible God will also focus on Israel from after the rapture of the Church with the following 7 year tribulation on Earth ended by the Second Coming of Messiah Jesus to earth. The Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ (Messiah) to earth will begin His and God the Father's Millennial or Messianic Kingdom on earth centred on Jerusalem and restored Israel (and the true Church and the saved of the nations.) The Daily Walk Bible does hold to the literal interpretation of the Bible including the last days restoration of Israel or/ or including the Jews to God and to their promised land of Israel.

For an examination of the also scriptural but probably more quickly achievable idea that the nations mentioned in the Great Commission to share the good news, of sure salvation and eternal life through God's only begotton Son Jesus Christ His death on the cross and resurrection from the dead and our trusting in Him to be our personal Lord and Saviour, to all the world being based on the 70 nations descended from Noah in the Table of Nations in Genesis 10 and 11 rather than the probably over 10,000 groups of people in the currently most popular "people group" definition of nations in the Great Commission and for some general scriptures about the Great Commission click on the following web page about the Great Commission

An excellent about 45 minute very well organized and thought out Bible based presentation of the nations for the New Testament including the Great Commission in Matthew 28 or elsewhere being the 70 Genesis 20 Noah nations and some of the main gods and powers and principalities being the perhaps fallen angels over each of those 70 nations is by a Bible teacher named Brad or Bradley Smith from First Christian Church of Bristol Virginia USA with title Worldview 70 Nations. I do, however, disagree with Dr. Heiser in his attributing the role of Elohim to God the Father (Yahweh) and the 70 or a multiple of 70 (such as 140 or 210) spirits (angels or demons) in the divine council rather than to the divine trinity (God the Father, God the Son (the Lord Jesus Christ) and God the Holy Spirit (Holy Ghost) of the creation of man (humans) in Genesis 1:26-28 as I believe only God has the ability and authority of creative acts including to make beings such as humans in His image and spirits (angels or demons don't share this ability or authority. I also think it is only the divine trinity not God the Father and the spirits of the divine council that should be referred to under God (Elohim) in other creative acts of God in other parts of Genesis 1 or elsewhere in the Bible. I also think that it is God including references as Elohim that only has the authority to carry out ultimate judgement including of humans and spirits (angels or demons). However, I do agree or can agree with Dr. Heiser that since the provision of God to Noah and his descendents (the 70 nations of Genesis 10 and following scriptures) to administer oversee or have dominion over the Earth from the time after the great or worldwide flood of Genesis 7 to 9 etc. to the time of the Second Coming of Jesus at the end of the soon coming tribulation or 70th week of Daniel that the references to God (Elohim) are or could be more in emphases to the divine council of God (Father, Son and Holy Spirit and 70 or a multiple of 70 spirits (angels and/or demons) in references to overseeing the nations of the world or even other parts of the created world such as the created heavens and earth. I think there could be a role of a reduced divine council (excluding the demon or fallen angel spirits) in overseeing or judgeing the nations in time also in the Millennial or Messianic Kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ or Adonai Y'Shua HaMashiach after His Second Coming at the end of the tribulation, 70th week of Daniel or time of Jacob's trouble.

Added in Great Commission web page: reference in Luke 8 about Christians not to cover or hide our witness for Jesus from Greek work Kaluptos which is the modern Greek work for face mask. In other words if possible Christians shouldn't wear face mask if it hinders our spoken witness for Jesus and some of the laws made by government now and encouraged by the media partly have the effect of hindering Christian witness for Jesus by forcing also Christians to wear face masks and muffle or cover our witness for Jesus to the unsaved people.

Bible Prophecy and the Nations

For an excellent source for information about Bible teaching and Bible prophecy about the Church, Israel, the Nations and Science visit:

South West Radio Church

There is much the Bible says about the nations (meaning all nations but Israel) especially for the last days after the Church is caught up (raptured) to Heaven. Then God will work among the Jews and the nations. Sometimes the Bible speaks of nations in general and somtimes of specific nations or group of nations. Often, especially in the Old Testament, prophecies for the nations use the old names of nations that can usually be related to present people groups, nations or regions with some study.

Prophecy of Saint Malachy and Roman Catholic Popes Although I have some reservations because it is not in the Bible, there is a surprisingly accurate prophecy from St. Malachy that from his time in 1139 there would be 112 popes of which Pope John Paul 2 is third last and Pope Benedict XVI is the second last.

February 11, 2013 Resignation of Pope Benedict 16 According to Saint Malachy's Prophecy the Next Pope Will be the Last Pope Peter the Roman but as a Bible Believing Christian I Still Am Not Quite Sure What to Think of These Prophecies. By Some reports they will be more credible if the next pope is Italian.

March 13, 2013 The New Pope Has Been Chosen He is Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio from Argentinia. And he will be called Francis. Although the new pope is neither directly from Italy or named Peter, he is the son of Italian immigrants on both sides and it is significant that he has chosen the papal name Francis after Saint Francis of Asissi. This is because Saint Francis is regarded as the patron saint of Italy and part of the name of Saint Francis is Pietro or Peter after his father. Also this new pope has a reputation of being a pastor that looks after his flock and this is also a characteristic of Peter the Roman. Therefore after I looked into the situation more this new pope Francis 1 can possibly be regarded as a fulfillment of Peter the Roman that is to be the pope that leads the Roman Catholic Church into the tribulation according to Saint Malachy's prophecy but we will have to see what happens and we have to keep in mind that this prophecy isn't inspired of God like prophecies in God's word the Holy Bible.

Bible Prophecy and Israel

There is very much the Bible says about Israel especially its future in the last days of the world and God and Messiah's rule on Earth but I will just give you some background first. After the building of the Flood of Noah and the building of the Tower of Babel in Genesis 6 - 11 there was universal idolatry (and immorality) on Earth. Then the LORD - the One True God's solution was to separate from the nations one man and his wife Abraham and Sarah. God used them to build a godly nation for Himself that would follow His laws and be a witness to the nations of the blessings of following God's ways and trusting in Him. This nation and people through Abraham, Isaac and Jacob who was renamed by God Israel is the people of Israel or the Jews. God's ways to them was the law of Moses given in the first five books of the Bible.

About 2000 years ago through Jewish geneaology and into a Jewish culture was born, lived, died for our sins, rose from the dead, and ascended into Heaven the Jewish Messiah and Saviour of the world Jesus Christ or Jesus the Messiah. At Pentecost believing Jews in the Messiah became part of the Church. After the rapture believing Jews (the remnant of Israel) will again be distinct from believing Gentiles.

In the Great Tribulaton or 70th week of Daniel God will arrange the building of a 3rd or Tribulation Temple of God for the Jews on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem. He will also witness to Jews and Gentiles (people of the nations) through two special witnesses and 144,000 witnesses who will all be Jews that believe in Jesus. They will witness that Jesus was the promised Messiah and that He then will be coming soon to set up His and God's Kingdom over all the Earth ruling from Jerusalem with Israel of the Jews then the Head of the nations in fulfillment of many Bible prophecies. God will also bless Israel in eternity or that part that believes in His Messiah Jesus Christ.

Main Possible Locations of the Ark of the Covenant

I believe there is only one serious candidate for the Ark of the Covenant current location. The most likely location is under the Temple Mount perhaps under the Chamber of Wood spoken in favour by The Temple Institute and others. Possible Locations of the Ark of the Covenant

For more information from a literal Christian scriptural context about Israel especially the Last Days Jewish Temple worship in Jerusalem visit Randall Price's website at:

World of the Bible

The Temple Institute is involved primarily in research and making authentic productions of material needed for the Third Jewish Temple worship such as the furniture of the Temple such as the Menorah, Altar of Sacrifice, Table of Shewbread etc and priestly garments. These are all made as specified in the Law of Moses or other Jewish writings about the Tabernacle or earlier Jewish Temple worship.


The main problem with these literal interpretation of the Old Testament based Jewish temple groups thinking and actions is that, because they don't accept the New Testament as the word of God or Jesus of Nazareth as the Jewish Messiah, they believe they are preparing for the Messianic Thousand Year Kingdom on earth but they are actually unwittingly preparing for what God says in His Word about Israel in the 70th week tribulation of Daniel. However these literal or orthodox Jewish believers are right to believe in, look forward to and prepare for the resumption of their temple worship on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem but that will come in a blessed way in the real Messianic Age after the 70th week of Daniel and after the second coming of the Jewish Messiah in Jesus of Nazareth.

7 First Eartly Ministry Between His Conception and Coming from Heaven and his death for our sins of the Son of God the Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah). He then showed a perfectly sinless life in word including all his teaching, deeds (miraculous and otherwise), thoughts and motives and feelings and will or worship. This was so we could have a fuller personal revelation of God in the flesh and so Jesus could offer Himself on the cross as God's perfect sacrifice for the sins and resurrection from the dead of all human beings with the benefit received when we trust in Jesus and His work.
8 Death of Jesus Christ for our sins including His descent into hell after His Heavenly Father forsaking Him for 3 hours and His giving up the His spirit
9 Resurrection from the dead of the Lord Jesus Christ and some Old Testament saints and the ascension to heaven of those Old Testament saints the third day after Jesus' death for our sins

12 Church Dispenation beginning at Pentecost almost 2000 years ago with the pouring out of the Holy Spirit on believers in the Lord Jesus Christ that will continue to the very soon rapture or catching up of true Christians and the taking away of the restrainer (the Holy Spirit). In this period believers from Jews and the Nations are one people of God with Christ (Messiah) as head and united by the Holy Spirit
13 Rapture or catching up of the Church or born again Christians who have personally received the Lord Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour to the air to meet Jesus from Heaven
14 Second part of the rapture with the Lord Jesus Christ bringing all born of the Holy Spirit Christians and the restraining Holy Spirit from the air to Heaven
15 First 3 1/2 year halves of The Tribulation or 70th Week of Daniel When God will through the witness of his two witnesses Moses and Elijah and 144,000 Messianic Jewish witnesses save people who turn to Jesus in this time of judgment and open spiritual conflict and evil one world rule of the Satanic Antichrist
16 Final casting of Satan, Lucifer or the devil out of heaven to earth to totally energize and control the wicked world ruler the Antichrist or Beast out of the Sea at the midpoint of the 7 year tribulation
17 Second 3 1/2 year half of the tribulation or 70th week of Daniel also called The Great Tribulation when there will be no further gospel witness only God's judgment on mankind for their sin and unbelief in Jesus. Believers in Jesus then living on earth will have to endure these plagues and refuse to worship the Beast or take his mark
18 God with His Son and Messiah Jesus Coming from Heaven to Earth with His Saints or Believers and Holy Angels to Set Up His Kingdom on Earth and Resurrection of Other Old Testament Believers and Tribulation Martyrs
19 God through His Son Jesus or His holy angels sending Satan, demons, the Antichrist, False Prophet and unbelieving Jews and Gentiles to hell to make way for His Kingdom on Earth and to judge them for their sin
20 Messianic Kingdom or Age of 1000 Years of God's Rule through His Son Jesus and His saints and angels centred on Jerusalem, Israel and the Jewish people

23 Sending to the Lake of Fire of All Unbelievers and Satan, Demons to join the Antichrist and False Prophet
24 ETERNAL AGE AND DISPENSATION or Day of God when God the Father will primarily rule with Jesus through the Holy Spirit over believers of all ages and the holy angels in The New Heaven(s), the New Earth and the New Jerusalem and Satan the Devil all his evil angels, the Antichrist, the False Prophet and all unbelievers of all ages will be confined to The Lake of Fire

Bible Prophecy and Space Science (Astronomy)

There is much reference to outer space "the heavens" in the Bible, especially the Old Testament, but there is an important point that should be kept in mind when reading or studying these verses. God's Word - the Holy Bible sometimes refers to the physical or natural heavens, sometimes to the spiritual heavens or that which is in them such as angels, demons or God Himself or the future believers. The scriptures sometimes use references to the heavens in an ambiguous way such as the term "heavenly host" that can be taken very soundly in either a natural or spiritual sense. Human beings who have gone into the heavens in our present state, such as astronauts, seem to sense in a limited but real way the co-existing spiritual aspect in the heavens.

Bible Prophecy and Other Science

There are many topics in science or nature that are referred to in the Bible. Often they have primarily a literal or physical meaning but sometimes they have more of a spiritual meaning at other times there is both a natural and figurative or spiritual meaning. Some topics dealt with in the Bible from the natural realm include trees, water, the wilderness, spices, animals, rain, precious stones and metals, wind, fire, wood, mountains, seas and rivers.
