Welcome to the new readers.  Let’s read the third scripture that confuses many Christians concerning a preset
number of days.

Acts 17:26  From one man he made all nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth;  and he 
marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands.  God did this so that
they would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from any one
of us.

This scripture is telling us that God made all nations from the descendants of Adam.  He determined the exact
times and locations that nations will emerge and decline.  This includes nations like the Athenians, Greeks, Romans,
Barbarians, Jews, and current nations.

Here are a couple related scriptures:

Deuteronomy 32:18  When the Most High gave the nations their inheritance.  When he divided all mankind he set
up boundaries for the people according to the number of sons of Israel.

This is referring to God dividing the world and giving land to the people that sprung from the sons of Noah.  They
were divided by the people and tribes by which they descended.

Job 12:23  He makes nations great, and destroys them;  he enlarges nations, and disperses them.

The above scriptures are telling us that God made all nations of people and determined the appointed times of
these nations.  The distinct period of time and generations in which such leaders of nations should live and such
nations should exist.  How long the government rule shall last.  Many times the persecution created by these
nations will cause people to reach out to God.

The vast majority of Christians living within any nation has no predetermined number of days to live.

Next week, we will read about some possible exceptions.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
