Habakkuk 2:2
“And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables,
that he may run that readeth it.”
Yes ! God here through the prophet Habakkuk speaks of
“Writing down the vision and making it plain upon tables”

and today this chart before us is THAT “vision”—

THE CHART OF THE DIVINE PLAN OF THE AGES
This “DIVINE PLAN” OF GOD is hidden in the Bible from Genesis to Revelation
and it is “here a little and there a little”
but at the proper time God decided to make it “plain” on a “table” or chart !!
But you may say—
“I CANNOT UNDERSTAND, I HAVE NEVER SEEN THIS CHART BEFORE” !
Well, if anyone were to walk into an architect’s office and see the various PLANS and
BLUEPRINTS for the architect’s buildings, the experience would be much
the same until the architect himself begins to EXPLAINS them to us !
It is similar with the GREAT DIVINE ARCHITECT and His GREAT PLAN !
HE MUST EXPLAIN IT TO US.
This chart study will be gradual and take about a year to gain the full understanding.
We must understand its various features very slowly as we study
the PLAN OF GOD in great detail.

“THE FIRST WORLD”

Today we will only see A, B and C. in this chart. They are shown
Today we will only see A, B and C. in this chart. They are shown as
1. THE FIRST WORLD
2. THE SECOND WORLD
3. THE THIRD WORLD
Let us read of these three WORLDS in-
2 Peter 3:5-7, 13
“For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out
of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store,
reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.”
Vs. 13
“Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens
and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.”
NOW, WHAT ARE THESE “WORLDS” ?
Here the Apostle Peter speaks of the “world that was”
before
the flood,
“the present evil world” and
“according
to His promise”
a “new world to come” where righteousness shall dwell !
EACH WORLD is said to have “a heaven and an earth”
WHAT DOES ALL THIS MEAN ?
Let us see as we read from —
2 Corinthians 12:1-4
“IT is not expedient for me doubtless to glory. I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord.
I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of
the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third heaven.
And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;)
How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words,
which it is not lawful for a man to utter.”
Here the Apostle Paul speaks of
“a man in Christ”
who in a “vision” was
“caught up”
to the
“third heaven” and saw a “paradise” and things “not permitted to be told”
What is this
“third heaven”
?
Where are the “first” and “second” heavens ?
To understand this we must realise that in the Bible the English word
“heaven” is applied to three meanings as seen below-
1.
HEAVEN - the abode or the home of God
-where He resides. (Ecclesiastes 5:2)
2. HEAVEN - the sky and space with the sun,
moon and stars (Psalms 19:1)

3. HEAVEN - the third meaning here is little known to many and is used extensively in the Bible and has a very important understanding which we must now gain. We read of it in—

Matthew 24:35

“Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.”

Yes ! Here it speaks of heaven and earth “passing away”

Yes ! Here it speaks of heaven and earth “passing away” WHICH “heaven” and which “earth”

WHICH “heaven” and which “earth” passes away ? And

Does “God’s abode” orWHICH “heaven” and which “earth” passes away ? And “the sky” pass away? WHY ? OF

“the

sky” pass away?

WHY

?

OF COURSE NOT !! Then, which “heaven and earth” passes away ? What is meant by “heaven and earth” ? Is the LITERAL sky or the LITERAL earth going to be destroyed ? Let us see the answer to these questions as we read from -

Ecclesiastes 1:4

“One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh:

but the earth abideth for ever.”

Yes ! Here it is clear that the earth “abides forever”. It does NOT EVER PASS AWAY. And again we read in another place in -

Psalms 104:5

“Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever.”

Yes ! The earth’s foundations have been laid to last FOREVER !

Yes ! The earth CANNOT be moved nor Then again we read in-

be

destroyed EVER !!

Isaiah 45:18

“For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited; I am the LORD; and there is none else.”

Not only is the earth to abide forever but it was NOT MADE TO BE EMPTY but to be “inhabited” forever. How CLEAR we see this fact in the scriptures!

THEN WHICH “HEAVEN AND EARTH” PASSES AWAY ?

THEN WHICH “HEAVEN AND EARTH” PASSES AWAY ?

As we saw in 2 Timothy 2:15 we must “rightly divide the word of truth” —or correctly understand the language used. Here in Matthew 24:35 it is NOT literal language but symbolic language that is used !

“THE FIRST WORLD”

We read the answer in-

Ephesians 2:2

“Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:”

Yes ! The “prince of the power of the air” is a reference to SATAN and his SPIRITUAL INVISIBLE RULERSHIP of this earth at the present time.

Thus the symbolic meaning of “heaven” refers to the INVISIBLE SPIRITUAL RULERSHIP OF THE EARTHLY AFFAIRS.

THIS IS THE IMPORTANT THIRD MEANING OF THE ENGLISH WORD - “HEAVEN”

IMPORTANT THIRD MEANING OF THE ENGLISH WORD - “HEAVEN” Now what does the symbolic “earth” mean?

Now what does the symbolic “earth” mean? We read of that answer in -

Isaiah 24:1-3,19,20

“BEHOLD, the LORD maketh the earth empty, and maketh it waste, and turneth it upside down, and scattereth

Isaiah 24:1-3,19,20

abroad the inhabitants thereof. And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest; as with the servant,

so with his master; as with the maid, so with her mistress; as with the buyer, so with the seller; as with the lender, so with the borrower; as with the taker of usury, so with the giver of usury to him. The land shall be utterly emptied, and utterly spoiled: for the LORD hath spoken this word.”

Vs.19,20

- “The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly. The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, and shall be removed like a cottage;

and the transgression thereof shall be heavy upon it; and it shall fall, and not rise again.”

Yes ! Here the “earth” refers not to

THE

PLANET but to the HUMAN SYSTEMS

OF ORGANIZATION under that spiritual rulership.

Thus the symbolic “earth” refers to the VISIBLE EARTHLY HUMAN RULERSHIP

The present “evil world” is to be FOLLOWED by a world “wherein dwelleth righteousness” How will that new “heavens” and INVISIBLE SPIRITUAL RULERSHIP be like? We see that answer in—

“I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.”

Yes! Here we see “one like the Son of Man” being given an “EVERLASTING” dominion and kingdom over the people of the earth. Yes! THAT “world” will be under the rulership of “the Son of man” JESUS

In the new ECONOMY system of the THIRD WORLD none will lack their basic needs of food, clothing and shelter as we read in-

Noah and his family were saved. ( Genesis 6:17,18 )
WHY WAS THIS ? Because we read of those reasons in =
Genesis 6:9
“Noah was a JUST man and PERFECT IN HIS GENERATIONS, and Noah walked with God”.
The words
“perfect in his generations”
refer to the fact that no ANGELIC blood was mixed up in
Noah’s family genealogy as was prevalent in most other families at that time.

VISIBLE only to his own family. Gradually as the ark grew in size it

began to be VISIBLE to his neighbors. Then as more

time went

by and

the ark became larger it was VISIBLE to the whole area he lived in. Then finally as the BUILDING of the ARK was reaching its conclusion and the GIANT ship stood on the land it was VISIBLE to ALL the people around. People must have made many enquiries with Noah about

the ark And Noah’s answers about the coming “flood” and the rain must have caused them to

make fun of him. BUT NOAH NEVER STOPPED HIS WORK OR
