Each prophetic-promise (prophecy) was not made available to Mankind (fulfilled) until its appointed time of delivery into human history: from each of those fulfillment-points forward each individual has the opportunity to obtain its promise by his own faith in Christ.

 

Examples:

  •    The Gospel was not made available to Mankind until Jesus began to preach it around 27AD: from 27AD forward each individual obtains Gospel blessings by his own faith in Christ.
  •    The Salvation of the soul was not made available to Mankind until Jesus Christ died on the Cross & Resurrected around 30AD: from 30AD forward each individual obtains the Salvation of his soul by his own public profession of faith in Christ via water baptism.
  •    The Resurrection-transformation-glorification of the mortal-natural bodies of the dead in Christ was not made available until the First Resurrection at the Lord Jesus' Return around 70AD: from 70AD forward each Christian obtains the Resurrection-transformation-glorification of his mortal-natural body at the judgment he receives from the Lord Jesus following his own death, LINK.  This, too, is received by grace through each one's faith in he Lord Jesus Christ.  Throughout Christian history and even through today are reports of Christ, the Shepherd & Bishop of our souls, coming to receive a person at his departure from this biological life.
  •    The Resurrection-transformation-judgment of the mortal-natural bodies of the rest of the dead was not made available until 1000 years after that 70AD First Resurrection:  from 1070AD forward the rest of the dead each obtains the Resurrection-transformation-judgment of his mortal-natural body at the judgment he receives from the Lord Jesus following his own death.  This Resurrection of Judgment (condemnation) comes upon "the Rest of the Dead," (contrasted against "the Dead in Christ"), because of their rejection of faith in Christ. The writers of the Nicene Creed of 325   AD anticipated this Resurrection of Judgment to commence at the close of the Millennium in which they saw themselves living.

John 14:21-24 NIV~"Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me. He who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love him and show myself to him."  Then Judas (not Judas Iscariot) said, "But, Lord, why do you intend to show yourself to us and not to the world?"  Jesus replied, "If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him."  Matthew 5:8~"Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God."  3 John 11~He that doeth evil hath not seen God.  Revelation 21:3~"Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God."  Matthew 1:23~And they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.  God is love ~1 John 4:16
