Times of the Gentiles vs. the Fullness of the Gentiles

Daniel 9 24a

What is the difference between the Times of the Gentiles and the Fullness of the Gentiles? Times is plural because there are four Gentile kingdoms that rise up.

Fulness in Romans 11 (of Gentiles) is the same root word as to be filled in Ephesians 5:18 which is the command to be controlled by the Holy Spirit. During the “Fulness of Time” the Gentiles become the ones to control in the world.

Under the old and the new covenants becoming a believer by either Jew or Gentile; faith is the requirement. That has never changed. Romans 3:1-2 informs us that there are many advantages of coming to faith from being a Jew. They grew up learning the traditions which all point to their Messiah who is Jesus. There are also hindrances of coming to that name for a Jew.

Until a Jew or a Gentile learns of their need and receives the one that the Bible describes as their saviour they will be separated from fellowship with God.
