The “times of the nations (gentiles)” is the time (42 months, 1260 days) that the nations of the outside world rule and speak evil of us and blaspheme His Holy Name. They..the outside nations that do not know God... are made the head while we who profess to know God are made the tail in this world. They look down upon us and mock as the 42 youths did with Elisha.
We are now living in these times. The “fullness of the gentiles/nations” = the “times of the nations” which will be fulfilled in due season. They shall fall by the “edge”…or the mouth…of the sword as the nations speak evil of us. We fall as the outside nations are given rule over us and belittle us and tread down all of the holy things.
Luke 21:24 KJV (24) And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and
shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be
trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be
We are hated of all nations for His name’s (the name of Jesus) sake during this present time (42 months) of the nations.
Matthew 24:8-9 KJV (8) All these are the beginning of sorrows. (9)
Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you:
and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.
Because many false prophets have come forth in this world and are preaching “another Jesus” who all claim that they are preaching the true Jesus who is called the Christ (“I am the Christ”)….and many of His people are following those false prophets and their handwritings of church dogmas of those that enrich themselves. Yet, their "Jesus" that they preach is not the true Christ but is the "instead-of" Christ.
Matthew 24:3-5 KJV (3) And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the
disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these
things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of
the world? (4) And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that
no man deceive you. (5) For many shall come in my name, saying, I am
Christ; and shall deceive many.
His people are being made merchandise of by false prophets….and the world sees the covetousness and blasphemes...speaking against God and His Holy Name.
When we sit together with them in their churches where this is being done, we are participating in the contempt shown towards God that the world shows.
We may be honoring God within our churches but we are also dishonoring Him by how the world judges us as they see covetousness within the churches of men. We cannot sit at the table of the Lord and also the table of devils. We are participating in the world's blaspheming as we are causing it by preaching things for money's sake.
And so the outside nations of this world are made the head and we are made the tail as a result.
During this time when many are worshipping “another Jesus” the instead-of Christ (the “antichrist”) that the covetous false prophets are preaching (who are acting in behalf of), the nations of this world blaspheme His Name as a result.
The “Jesus” that the deceived do now worship is a wild beast and not the Lamb who was slain. Their preaching of "another Jesus" causes war among us who believe in God. We fight and war with one another in the divisions/denominations of men.
Revelation 13:4-9 KJV (4) And they worshipped the dragon which gave
power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is
like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?
The “mouth” that was given to “another Jesus” (the 1st beast) who is the “antichrist” ( the instead-of the true Christ)is collectively the mouth of all the nations which hate us for His name’s sake as they blaspheme against God and His Holy name and His tabernacle and them that dwell in Heaven. They do this as a result of the many deceived who are worshipping “another Jesus” the “antichrist”.
Power was given unto him to continue 42 months.
If they were worshipping the true Jesus the true Christ, they would not be hated by all nations but would be but spoken well of (called a "house of prayer") and would be glorifying God through us.
(5) And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and
blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two
months. (6) And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to
blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven.
Power was given him over all nations as all nations see the hypocrisy and blaspheme His Name. They are using their tongues to blaspheme against God.
(7) And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to
overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues,
and nations. (8) And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him,
whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from
the foundation of the world. (9) If any man have an ear, let him
His Holy Name is being blasphemed by all nations because of His people being deceived by false prophets who make merchandise of those they lead astray.
Those that rule (the false prophets) over the churches of men wail thus “saith the LORD” when He did not speak to them and so the outside nations speak evil of His Name because of the false prophets’ hypocrisy.
Isaiah 52:5 KJV (5) Now therefore, what have I here, saith the LORD,
that my people is taken away for nought? they that rule over them make
them to howl, saith the LORD; and my name continually every day is
They steal and “commit sacrilege”….that is, they are temple robbers….
Romans 2:21-24 KJV (21) Thou therefore which teachest another,
teachest thou not thyself? thou that preachest a man should not steal,
dost thou steal? (22) Thou that sayest a man should not commit
adultery, dost thou commit adultery? thou that abhorrest idols, dost
thou commit sacrilege?
….and so the name of God is being blasphemed among the nations of the world through them...the temple robbers.
We must not sit together with them or we are participating in the nations who are dishonoring God (even though we honor God).
(23) Thou that makest thy boast of the law, through breaking the law
dishonourest thou God? (24) For the name of God is blasphemed among
the Gentiles through you, as it is written.
The moneychangers are now in the temple exchanging the glory of God that is due Him from all nations for money’s sake. The outside nations see this and dishonor God as a result.
Mark 11:15-17 KJV (15) And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went
into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in
the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the
seats of them that sold doves;
And so no man can carry any “vessel” (the mortal body) through the temple as all in them are perishing away from this earth.
(16) And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel
through the temple.
His house should be called of ALL NATIONS the ”house of prayer” as they are supposed to see us and praise God. We are to be to the praise of His glory.
But, instead, they find His house being made a “den of thieves” and speak evil…dishonoring God.
(17) And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house
shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made
it a den of thieves.
The Way of Truth is being evil spoken of by the outside nations because of the "pernicious ways" of the false, covetous teachers who through covetousness make merchandise of those they are deceiving. Their judgment is not sleeping as they are all perishing off this earth as well as those who are sitting together with them. The eternal life of Jesus is not being made manifest in their mortal flesh (no flesh is being saved) when we sit with them.
2 Peter 2:1-3 KJV (1) But there were false prophets also among the
people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily
shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought
them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. (2) And many shall
follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall
be evil spoken of. (3) And through covetousness shall they with
feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long
time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.
Covetousness = idolatry.
1 Corinthians 10:19-22 KJV (19) What say I then? that the idol is any
thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols is any thing?
The nations of the world speak evil because of the covetousness they see inside the churches of men who are exchanging the glory that is due God from all nations for money’s sake. The nations’ words that dishonor God is the “sacrifice to devils” and not to God.
(20) But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they
sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should
have fellowship with devils.
We must not have fellowship with those who are called “brothers” but are covetous as this brings the dishonoring of God among the outside nations. We cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table and of the table of devils. Even though we honor God in our gatherings, they see the covetousness within our gatherings and speak against God...not glorifying Him as they should. We are participating with them as we are causing it.
(21) Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye
cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils.
(22) Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? are we stronger than he?
We are to possess our “vessel”….the mortal body…in sanctification and honor by not sitting together (which is the “fornication”) with those who are called “brothers” but are covetous.
If we are sitting together (the “fornication”) in the churches of men where they are covetous…..where they are exchanging the glory of God for money’s sake…we mortally perish away with them in their destruction without manifesting the eternal life of Jesus as He does not permit any “vessel” to be carried through the temple.
1 Thessalonians 4:3-8 KJV (3) For this is the will of God, even your
sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication: (4) That
every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in
sanctification and honour; (5) Not in the lust of concupiscence, even
as the Gentiles which know not God:
We are not to defraud our brothers in any matter.
(6) That no man go beyond and defraud his brother in any matter:
because that the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also have
forewarned you and testified. (7) For God hath not called us unto
uncleanness, but unto holiness.
God gave us His Holy Spirit.
(8) He therefore that despiseth, despiseth not man, but God, who hath
also given unto us his holy Spirit.
Our mortal bodies are the temple of God and the Spirit of God dwells in us. If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy. We must not join the covetous gatherings ("churches") of men (the den of thieves)which causes the outside nations to speak evil.
1 Corinthians 3:16-17 KJV (16) Know ye not that ye are the temple of
God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? (17) If any man
defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God
is holy, which temple ye are.
We must not sit together ( which equals the “fornication” we are to flee) in the churches of men who are preaching things for money’s sake and causing the nations to blaspheme His Holy Name as a result of what they are seeing. We become one in our mortal flesh with them and are being destroyed along with their common end in this earth.
1 Corinthians 6:15-20 KJV Know ye not that your bodies are the
members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make
them the members of an harlot? God forbid. (16) What? know ye not
that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he,
shall be one flesh. (17) But he that is joined unto the Lord is one
Flee “fornication”….being joined together with those who are exchanging the glory of God that is due Him from all nations in order to get money.
When we sit together with them, we sin against our own mortal body as we are perishing away with them in their mortal destruction as the Lord does not permit any “vessel” to be carried through the temple.
(18) Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the
body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.
(19) What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost
which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
We glorify God by not sitting together with them who are causing the outside nations to blaspheme.
(20) For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your
body, and in your spirit, which are God's.
We must not defraud our brothers in the churches. Lev 19: You shall not steal…neither deal falsely…neither lie to one another.
Leviticus 19:11-12 KJV (11) Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely,
neither lie one to another.
If we do, then His Name is being profaned among the gentiles/nations.
(12) And ye shall not swear by my name falsely, neither shalt thou
profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD.
But the “times of the gentiles/nations” will be fulfilled where His Name has and is being profaned among the nations because of the temple robbers they see.
The Lord will open up the Scriptures (He will sprinkle clean water upon us) to our hearing ears and will renew the Holy Spirit within us as we shall put away the preaching for money’s sake and the covetous practices of those who preach to us.
Ezekiel 36:21-26 KJV (21) But I had pity for mine holy name, which
the house of Israel had profaned among the heathen, whither they went.
(22) Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD;
I do not this for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for mine holy
name's sake, which ye have profaned among the heathen, whither ye
went. (23) And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned
among the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and
the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, saith the Lord GOD, when I
shall be sanctified in you before their eyes. (24) For I will take
you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and
will bring you into your own land. (25) Then will I sprinkle clean
water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and
from all your idols, will I cleanse you. (26) A new heart also will I
give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away
the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of
It is not because of our “works of righteousness” we have done (where in the outside nations blaspheme His Holy Name) but according to His mercy does He save us by the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit. He shall save us because His Name is holy and should not be blasphemed among the outside nations because of our “works of righteousness.”
Titus 3:4-7 KJV (4) But after that the kindness and love of God our
Saviour toward man appeared, (5) Not by works of righteousness which
we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing
of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; (6) Which he shed on
us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; (7) That being
justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope
of eternal life.
We are supposed to be the head in this world and not the tail.
We are to hear and do His commandments so that we may be the head (over all nations) and not the tail (where all nations hate us).
Deuteronomy 28:13-14 KJV (13) A***nd the LORD shall make thee the head,
and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be
beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy
God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them:** (14)
And thou shalt not go aside from any of the words which I command thee
this day, to the right hand, or to the left, to go after other gods to
There will be no more curse when the “times of the nations” are fulfilled …when we finally listen and do His commandments. See the curses for disobedience in Deuteronomy 28.
Deuteronomy 28:37 KJV (37) And thou shalt become an astonishment, a
proverb, and a byword, among all nations whither the LORD shall lead
The “fullness of the nations” is also in direct correlation to the “times of the nations”… about this time we are living in.
Romans 11:25-27 KJV (25) For I would not, brethren, that ye should be
ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits;
that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the
Gentiles be come in. (26) And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is
written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn
away ungodliness from Jacob: (27) For this is my covenant unto them,
when I shall take away their sins.
