What Happens When the Age of Grace Ends?

According to the Bible, we live in the age of grace. God is withholding His judgment because He does not want anyone to perish. But someday the period of grace will suddenly be over and it will be time to “pay the fine” for the wages of sin.

The Rapture of the Church will end the church-age and in the “twinkling of an eye,” the age of grace will be history. Gone Forever.

There will be no more pastors, no more elders, no more deacons and no more church services. They’ll be no more opportunity to give or serve in the church because the church-age and the age of Grace will vanish!

It began on the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2) with the arrival of the Holy Spirit and it will end on the day of the Rapture as the Holy Spirit’s influence is removed by the rapture of the church (2 Thess. 2).

When that happens, it indicates God’s patience has run out and two things will occur. His grace will get replaced with a delusional spirit that assures man’s damnation and all the world is thrust into the age of His Wrath (2 Thess. 2:11-12).

Some might ask, “how can a loving God destroy the whole world?” It’s called justice.

We live in a very twisted world as you know, a world where everything is reversed. Dark has been substituted for light. Evil has been substituted for good. Bitterness has substituted for sweetness, to borrow the words of the prophet Isaiah (5:20).

In our twisted world, special categories of sin have become civil rights, and the most perverse iniquities are lauded as virtues.

But much like Noah’s day, God’s justice will intervene to punish man’s rebellion. That punishment will fall swiftly on this unsuspecting world in the coming 7-Year Tribulation.

The world’s first taste of God’s punishment and wrath comes at the hands of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

When it’s time for these four horses to move out, the voice in heaven invites the Apostle John to investigate them by saying, “Come and see.”
