The New Testament makes it clear that we are living in the period of restoration when God is calling His children back to Himself. Jews and Gentiles alike are hearing the gospel and running to Him in faith. Each of us who believes in Christ has an appointed inheritance—the whole earth (Matt. 5:5). Each of us is being transformed so that the Lord can dwell among us permanently at His return. We now taste these blessings in part, and we look forward to their full realization in the age to come.
