Our Lord wants us to be more than just believers who qualify for God’s Fire Insurance Policy. For sure, Christ wants to be more to us—who are His Body—than just someone who saves us from the end-time Wrath of God, as well as saves us from the Lake of Fire’s eternal punishment.
When the apostle Paul says the righteous believers are NOT meant to go through God’s end-times Wrath, the apostle Paul means exactly that. So that God would not pour out any of His Wrath upon His righteous sons and daughters, He poured out His full cup of Wrath upon His only begotten Son, Jesus the Christ. As a result, the Bride of Christ (every born again, saved, justified, and fully sanctified Jew and Gentile) would be RESCUED from (would escape) ALL of the end-times Wrath to come!
It is ironic that God chooses Pentecost to be the day His Holy Spirit would begin preparing the firstfruits of the redeemed people who would makeup God’s Kingdom to come—the day that blood-bought Jews and Gentiles become God’s sons and daughters in the Household of Faith. But thank God He did!
We are God’s children living in a heavenly settlement on this Earth—the Body of Christ, also called the CHURCH.
