What Time Is It?
The year today is 2014 AD. AD translates to “of the Lord’s dominion”. All history is dated how many years before Christ came, B.C., and how many years after Christ came, A.D. = of the Lord’s dominion. ALL points of time, past, present or future, revolve around Jesus. When did man land on the moon? In the 1,969th year of the Lord Jesus’ dominion.
Without His coming, dying and resurrection, AD would never have gained traction and been adopted world wide. It gained traction for a good reason, it’s the truth, but so many don’t pay attention.
After Jesus ascended the apostles began to speak and teach with great boldness and with no fear of death. They were captured and came before the high priest and the pharisees and they plotted to kill the apostles but one of the pharisees said:
“Men of Israel, take heed to yourselves what you intend to do regarding these men. For some time ago Theudas rose up, claiming to be somebody. A number of men, about four hundred, joined him. He was slain, and all who obeyed him were scattered and came to nothing. After this man, Judas of Galilee rose up in the days of the census, and drew away many people after him. He also perished, and all who obeyed him were dispersed. And now I say to you, keep away from these men and let them alone; for if this plan or this work is of men, it will come to nothing…” (Acts 5:35-38)
Well, the Apostles were set free and obviously it came to something. We live in the Lord’s dominion.
