If my understanding is correct, God has two primary goals. The first is to put an end to all rebellion and sin. The second is to enlarge His family. I now will explain these two goal and how God is moving toward them.
The first goal is to abolish totally all rebellion and sin from God's creation. We who live on the earth are so accustomed to sin and self-will that we hardly can imagine a life apart from this pattern of behavior. Yet, there will come a day in which all rebellion and sin have been removed from the creation of God.
Seventy "sevens" are decreed for your people and your holy city to finish transgression, to put an end to sin, to atone for wickedness, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the most holy. (Daniel 9:25)
The atonement has been made on the cross. Now the problem is to abolish totally all rebellion and sin from God's creation. The program of abolishing rebellion and sin has commenced in our day and will proceed until the end of the thousand-year Kingdom Age. It is the spiritual fulfillment of the Jewish Day of Atonement.
Abolishing rebellion and sin requires a war. The source of rebellion and sin is the heavens. We are fighting against highly placed lords in the spirit realm. God's will cannot be done in the earth until it first is done in the heavens.
Today the Spirit of God is announcing the coming of the King to us to war against His enemies in our personality. As the Spirit of God points out an area of rebellion and sin we are to confess it to Christ, naming it clearly, and telling the Lord that by His help we never again will behave in that manner.
When Christ has a company of believers who will follow Him in putting all of His enemies under His feet, He will return and raise them from the dead. Then He will catch them up to meet Him in the air.
