In Galatians 1.4 Paul writes,
τοῦ δόντος ἑαυτὸν ὑπὲρ τῶν ἁμαρτιῶν ἡμῶν, ὅπως ἐξέληται ἡμᾶς ἐκ τοῦ αἰῶνος τοῦ ἐνεστῶτος πονηροῦ κατὰ τὸ θέλημα τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ πατρὸς ἡμῶν,
What about this present age?
The common concept of conflagration would see ages recycle, usually accompanied by some sort of fire. Very mythological here. We should remember that Paul is not a dispensationalist. No, not because the term is anachronistic and created by a Darby, but because Paul is smarter than that. But, think about what this present age could me to Roman readers.
If there another age after this one where the blood of Christ is not sufficient, or perhaps done with?
I know… I know… But Paul was a Roman!
And, don’t give me that — heaven is an age garbage. Ages end, dude.
