I know this goes against what has commonly been taught and believed for millennia...but the reconciliation is simply that: That is what occurred in heaven when Jesus was given all power and authority in heaven and earth 2,000+ years ago. Which cannot be comprehended according to the timetable of this world by which the kingdom of God does not operate. Thus, it is not even correct to say such things "will be" whether one is looking forward or back.Hi Scott,
Q- How do you reconcile what you have said with the fact that Jesus said in Revelation 11:15 which is the half-way point in the Tribulation the following?
The Seventh Trumpet
15 The seventh angel sounded his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, which said:
“The kingdom of the world has become
the kingdom of our Lord and of his Messiah,
and he will reign for ever and ever.”
16 And the twenty-four elders, who were seated on their thrones before God, fell on their faces and worshiped God, 17 saying:
“We give thanks to you, Lord God Almighty,
the One who is and who was,
because you have taken your great power
and have begun to reign.
To the contrary, stepping outside the realm and context of created time--God has as much as said, the crucifixion of Christ 2,000+ years ago is more correctly stated as "before the foundation of the world", and that those who are His from before and after His coming, "were" crucified with Him. These are the revelations that were given to Paul in the third heaven.
