Good Morning Happy One… (even if you’re mad, at the moment, you have every reason to be happy as you are His.)

As we used to say in my evangelical days “This is a day the Lord hath made.”
In my days as an evangelical christian we didn’t know a damn thing about the “eons”. Even though the greek word AION shows up in the Bible 199 times. — The New Testament.
199 times ??? And we didn’t know a thing about it… what gives dude?
We knew all about “the trinity” — a word that NEVER shows up in the Bible.
We knew all about “the immortal soul” — another word that NEVER shows up in the Bible.
And of course, we knew all about man’s beloved and untouchable “freewill”…. You know, the “freewill” that God can ’never’ violate… yeah… that will. — and of course that word also NEVER shows up in the Bible.
And finally, we knew all about “HELL”… that it was “ENDLESS CONSCIOUS PUNISHMENT” — conjecture… but NOT in the Bible.

We’ve been trying to weave our way through evangelical christian teachings — to find the truth in God. (I only reference “evangelical” because that was part of my epic journey… I was never a Catholic, but I suppose they are included in our examination.)
So… “leaving behind” all or some of that stuff… I say, let’s see what we really can find in the Scripture.
AION — as I said — shows up in the New Testament 199 times. Why is it christians know nothing about it ???

I bet we can see God, if we can peep into the eons. Let’s go:

  1. The eons were made in Christ.
    This is revealed in Hebrews chapter one. Hang on, let me copy and paste it here…

TO THE HEBREWS
Chapter 1

1 By many portions and many modes, of old, God, speaking to the fathers in the prophets,

2 in the last of these days speaks to us in a Son, Whom He appoints enjoyer of the allotment of all, through Whom He also makes the eons;


Keep in mind AION is the Greek word, EON is the English equivalent.
The opening lines of this book of Hebrews are so lovely. Dare we say that if you take these 2 verses… they are so beautiful… that you could toss the rest of the Bible away… ???
God makes the eons in Christ. Notice the verb form “makes”… The Greek of the New Testament has a verb form that we don’t have in English… a “timeless” form. Neither past, present, nor future.
So the best we can do is… God MAKES the eons in Christ.
Timeless… because we’re not talking about just one eon. As near as we can tell from the Bible’s language… there are 5 eons of time, in God’s eonian purpose.
So, of course, the writer of Hebrews says God “MAKES” the eons in Christ. He made the first eon, the second eon, we are now in the third eon… and there are two more to go… thus: God “MAKES” the eons in Christ.
So, God speaks to us these days in a Son — through Whom He makes the eons… wow… So God makes us… all of us… and God makes all of time… as we know it… God makes the eons… in or through His Son.
Ya know… this verse, is flat out comforting… when you think about it
… that God is totally in control of TIME. He not only “made” the eons, He goes beyond that short sighted thought… He “MAKES” the eons… wow.
God makes the time periods. Days, weeks, months, God makes them all. Years, decades, centuries, millennia, God makes them all. Even eons. Nothing is outside of His creative eye for detail.
Not even blinks, as Greg has tried to tell us on this channel many times. His word is “twinkle” which is a half of a blink.
Chapter 11 By many portions and many modes, of old, God, speaking to the fathers in the prophets,2 in the last of these days speaks to us in a Son, Whom He appoints enjoyer of the allotment of all, through Whom He also makes the eons;
How does God speak to us? Well… He speaks to us in many ways. But these day… God speaks to us in a Son.
And what do we know about this “Son”???
Well… He is the “enjoyer of the allotment of all”… OMG, what does that mean? How do we fit all that “endless hell” business into our understanding if the Son of God… is the enjoyer of the allotment of all… Lord have mercy, this is a deep thought… I confess… I’m not qualified to lead us down this primrose path of understanding… but I’m the best you got, as I’ve had one cup of coffee so far… and you guys are just getting up… ha.
2 in the last of these days speaks to us in a Son, Whom He appoints enjoyer of the allotment of all, through Whom He also makes the eons;
Through Whom He ALSO… I love the word ALSO.. it’s a busy word… it shows God is trying, trying, trying to shove so many thoughts into our heads… do you think we can handle it all? ALSO…
What is God up to??? He “appoints” his Son as a or perhaps THE enjoyer of the allotment OF ALL… (can we preach a universal salvation from this phrase?)
Enjoyer of the allotment of all… Oh my.
EMC SAYS… “The implications of the atonement is good news for all. It does not allow for a reality where Love endlessly torments the majority of it’s creation.”
Hang on… I’ve been saying that “God made the eons in Christ”… but I don’t think that’s quite right… God made the eons in His Son… before his role as “the Christ”… this is important… this is family. This is before we have a clue… Father and Son… and what does He do with His Son… two things… TWO BIG things. He appoints His Son as the enjoyer of the allotment of all….
2 in the last of these days speaks to us in a Son, Whom He appoints enjoyer of the allotment of all, through Whom He also makes the eons;
The word “appoints” has a TIME element to it, right? At some future time… The Son of God… will be the ENJOYER of the allotment of all.
That “hell” business says He will enjoy only a portion… YIKES… forget that.
2 in the last of these days speaks to us in a Son, Whom He appoints enjoyer of the allotment of all, through Whom He also makes the eons;
Note: “the last of these days” is a TIME reference too, right? As we understand the teaching of the eons, there are 5 eons altogether… we’re in the 3rd one, at the moment. It’s called “this wicked eon”… by Paul. There are two more to go… when they are mentioned together they are called “the eons of the eons”…. When the very last one is mentioned, it is called “the eon of the eons”….
So… since we’re in the 3rd one… we’re over the hump… eon wise. At most, two and a half eons to go… good news…
2 in the last of these days speaks to us in a Son, Whom He appoints enjoyer of the allotment of all, through Whom He also makes the eons;
What happens “in the last of these days”… Why of course, God speaks to us in a Son… wow. How kind of Him. Speaking to us in a Son, makes so much sense… in my mind.
Hebrews… Chapter 11 By many portions and many modes, of old, God, speaking to the fathers in the prophets,2 in the last of these days speaks to us in a Son, Whom He appoints enjoyer of the allotment of all, through Whom He also makes the eons;
So, a long time ago… God spoke to “us” in the Jewish prophets. But these days, He speaks to us in a Son… Does God speak to us “in Christ”… hmmm? Not sure… but He does “speak” to us in a Son… very intimate… very family.
God does so much through His Boy… we prattle on this channel about how God saves all in Christ… but here, in this passage, we can see that God even made THE EONS in/through is Son.
The eons are the longest period of time, discussed in the Bible. Generally speaking, we can see that an EON is a geologic measure of time… whereas “days”, “weeks”, “years”, etc… are all celestial measures of time. The current eon began with Noah’s flood. It will end with an earthquake that accompanies Christ’s return to the Earth.
God makes the eons, in Christ… or rather, in His Son. Not just one eon… God makes the eons… deep.
I love time travel movies. They are so fun. So many crazy notions. And I wonder if we can love that God makes the eons in His Son. Can we see crazy notions in God’s work here in Hebrews 1:1 and verse 2. ???


Hebrews… Chapter 1

1 By many portions and many modes, of old, God, speaking to the fathers in the prophets,

2 in the last of these days speaks to us in a Son, Whom He appoints enjoyer of the allotment of all, through Whom He also makes the eons;


Lord willing, I want to take a peek at every place where this word AION shows up in the New Testament… and see what we can see. It’s laying there, 199 times for use to delve into. I figure Hebrews 1, verse 2 is a fine place to start. The beginning of the eons is in the Son of His love.
God has a big plan… a wonderful purpose… and as far as we can tell, He changes things up a bit from time to time…. Speaking to us sometimes in the prophets, but nowadays in a Son. But at least… God is speaking to us, right?
It’s not like we’re not on speaking terms.
And to suggest that He speaks to us in a Son… my god, that is way out there… very intimate… who could ask for a more personal means of getting close to the Father???
He speaks to us in a Son. I’m humbled.
He speaks to us in a Son, through Whom He makes the eons, also.
Can we dare say that BECAUSE He makes the eons, it’s yet another way He speaks to us?

1 By many portions and many modes, of old, God, speaking to the fathers in the prophets,

2 in the last of these days speaks to us in a Son, Whom He appoints enjoyer of the allotment of all, through Whom He also makes the eons;


God speaks to us in the eons?
God speaks to us in the prophets, in a Son and in the eons of time. — Seems like God has thought of everything.
I’m thrilled that the Son is the enjoyer of the allotment of all. Wow. I know I’m included in that word “all” — somewhere. The Son is going to enjoy ME ???? hmmmm. I’m gonna faint.
Dare we suggest that “we” are as important as the “eons”???
He merely “makes” the eons in Christ…. But He ENJOYS all us boys and girls… Hmmmmmm.
Hebrews… Chapter 11 By many portions and many modes, of old, God, speaking to the fathers in the prophets,2 in the last of these days speaks to us in a Son, Whom He appoints enjoyer of the allotment of all, through Whom He also makes the eons;
Who is Christ??? He is the enjoyer of the allotment of all. Wow.
He earned it. He earned us. We are part of the all.
Ask any “christian”… ‘Hey, let me ask you a question, who is the enjoyer of the allotment of all?’ … you know… you know they will look at you like you’ve got 2 heads…
And it’s not like we’ve got something on them, if we can peep into this passage and it goes over their head… they are part of the all, as well. My point is to push you into a deeper appreciation of the revelation of God. God makes His Son to be the enjoyer… wow.
The enjoyer of what? Of the allotment. The allotment of how many? Of all !!!!!!
This thing is deeper and sweeter than anything we ever thought about. It’s a good thing God thought about it all. A good thing God planned out the EONS in Christ. Nothing, is outside of His scope of thinking and planning and His purpose… hot dog.

1 By many portions and many modes, of old, God, speaking to the fathers in the prophets,

2 in the last of these days speaks to us in a Son, Whom He appoints enjoyer of the allotment of all, through Whom He also makes the eons;


This passage… is about God. And God’s operations.
This passage is not necessarily about the “Son”… nor is it about us (the all)… it’s a revelation about God Himself. How He speaks. What His plans are. How He’s going to pull it all off.
What a great passage.
After we’re done prattling about this passage, concerning the BEGINNING of the eons… I think we’ll look at the END or ENDS of the eons… to see what we can see.
But Hebrews 1:1 and 2 is a fine way to launch into this teaching of the eons. Remember, it’s a real teaching of the Bible… because the word shows up some 199 times… and all we want is to know what God meant by using the word… and what God was trying to convey… and we want to shed our old, false notions about time and eternity… if needed.
So far… we’re off to a fine start (“fine start” get it… another time reference? A pun?)
Our concepts of time… apparently are VITAL to the message of God. If we have the wrong concepts of TIME, we’re sure to have the wrong notions of God’s purpose as well.
TIME, as we understand it, is limited.
“Time” is a measure of change. Things change. When they do, we mark the spot as a TIME measurement.
There was a TIME when there was no TIME…as “change” did not occur as we understand it all… for God was all in Himself, and had not begun creation yet.
Christ, according to Colossians 1:16…. Is the firstborn of creation. Can we say that that MARKS a TIME change?
And according to today’s passage (Hebrews 1: 1-2) God MARKS off time in His Son… wow. He makes the eons in His Son.

2 in the last of these days speaks to us in a Son, Whom He appoints enjoyer of the allotment of all, through Whom He also makes the eons;


“Many portions and many modes” indeed. You can’t outthink God. I know there are a lot of folks who’ve got advice for God. And if God would only listen to them, things would be so much better. But, alas, God did not consult with the whiners before He began this hootenanny.
And aren’t we lucky.
Just imagine the nightmare the universe would be if the wise of this world had ginned it all up. Twilight Zone comes to mind.

I’m so excited to head down this road of looking at the eons of the Bible. Let me know what you guys think, in the comments, or by email if you have my email.

If you want to check out Joseph Kirk’s article on The Eons… here is the link:
https://acetheologicalco.wordpress.com/2020/11/27/the-eons-of-the-bible-by-joseph-e-kirk/
There he also covers all 199 times where the word shows up. And if you hop over there, you’ll go to the head of the class. You’ll see things we might miss and maybe you can look over my shoulder and guide the discussion, etc.
Thanks for hanging out with me this morning.
I appreciate it.
Grace to you.
7:23 a.m.
Bye for now.
