4.1 Developments in the world

Developments in the world
Both Jesus and the Apostles used the concept of ages of time for the steps of history, each of which have their purpose to fulfill.
The exact number of ages, however, is of secondary importance. The main thing is that the division gives the presentation the necessary structure. For example, the transitions between the various ages comprise periods of judgment with great similarities. Sometimes the ages overlap each other by up to 40 years.

According to this perspective, we live today at the end of the sixth age. All the evils which characterized the world's lifestyle in the earlier ages such as egoism, lawlessness, sexual promiscuity, spiritual blindness and empty religion are now allowed to fester and grow like a boil until its wickedness bursts forth.

  • Wickedness will reach its worst point during the "Antichrist's" time on earth. Since the Antichrist derives his power and cunning from the Devil, he will ultimately become the absolute opposite of Christ.
  • God's judgement means that the dominion of the Antichrist will be left to destroy itself, since God will have removed his protection over humanity. Those who have chosen evil will then without restraint annihilate one another.
