Could it be we are living in the time Paul was talking about in verse 10 this is going to be the blessing of blessing? 10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:

Dispensation of the fullness of time refers to the end of time as we know it on planet earth. ).—Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Bible Commentary  Verse 10. Translate, “Unto the dispensation of the fulness of the times,” that is, “which He purposed in Himself” (Eph 1:9) with a view to the economy of (the gracious administration belonging to) the fulness of the times (Greek, “fit times,” “seasons”). More comprehensive than “the fulness of the time” (Ga 4:4). The whole of the Gospel times (plural) is meant, with the benefits to the Church dispensed in them severally and successively. Compare “the ages to come” (Eph 2:7). “The ends of the ages” (Greek, 1Co 10:11); “the times (same Greek as here, ‘the seasons,’ or ‘fitly appointed times’) of the Gentiles” (Lu 21:24); “the seasons which the Father hath put in His own power” (Ac 1:7); “the times of restitution of all things which God hath spoken by the prophets since the world began” (Ac 3:20, 21). The coming of Jesus at the first advent, “in the fulness of time,” was one of these “times.” The descent of the Holy Ghost, “when Pentecost was fully come” (Ac 2:1), was another. The testimony given by the apostles to Him “in due time” (“in its own seasons,” Greek) (1Ti 2:6) was another. The conversion of the Jews “when the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled,” the second coming of Christ, the “restitution of all things,” the millennial kingdom, the new heaven and earth, shall be severally instances of “the dispensation of the fulness of the times,” that is, “the dispensation of” the Gospel events and benefits belonging to their respective “times,” when severally filled up or completed. God the Father, according to His own good pleasure and purpose, is the Dispenser both of the Gospel benefits and of their several fitting times (Ac 1:7).”

Are we not living in the last days when time is no longer going to be needed? For we are just about ready to see the eighth day begin, that is the day without end, no night in heaven.

We see all around us now the effects of sin and how it produces disorder in our minds and all matter seems to be disarranged and out of harmony. We should serve one God, One King and have one Ruler and that is Gods perfect peace, and grace. Know we see terror, disorder and very few committed in following the Lord of Glory. The Kingdom of God has joined with the Kingdom of the world and it is causing many to become deceived. Harmony is very limited to day and we are singing completely out of tune. Everyone seems to be doing their thing, as God tells them, rather than waiting upon the Lord for the selection of songs to be sung. This is pitting older Christians at odds with younger Christians, and we are losing our harmony, or togetherness. Love is at the greatest when we understand Gods will, verses our will. We are getting ready to sing a new song Revelations 5:9-129 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; 10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth. 11 And I beheld, and I heard the voice of many angels round about the throne and the beasts and the elders: and the number of them was ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands; 12 Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.

God is going to have His way regardless of what man thinks, and we are soon to see harmony at the greatest degree. This will be the union of all Jews and Gentile, which is Grace at its fullest. We are living in a time when God is getting ready to say, "that is enough". Look at what the Jews are doing as they give up some of their promised land? Is it for them to do what they please, any more than it is for us to do what ever we do? That is why He chose us before the foundations of the world, so we could enjoy harmony that is produced by following the Lord.

It takes effort to have faith to resist Satan, for Satan wants us to be lazy and not put any work into our salvation. We hear the term salvation is unconditional and many  feel it is all up to God and they can relax in what ever they want. This type of attitude is hurting the Church and it could be the reason so many are divorcing in the Church. No commitment to discipline is rampant in our society in Religion, Government and Economics. This is no time to let down our armor, but make sure all the tools the Lord has given us, is in proper working order.
