Time Period: Unknown, but possibly around 2,000 years in duration.
Key Events: The Fourth Age began with the resurrection of Jesus Christ, which is the most central event in Godid^s Plan for All to reconcile all things to God the Father.
In this fourth and present Age, God is preparing His Church, His Bride, who are the called and chosen believers from both Israel and the Gentile nations. Many people claim to know Jesus Christ as their Saviour, but only a few are chosen to be God's Elect. Many false prophets and false teachers come in Jesus Christ's name, and they deceive many.
There are two important signs to watch out for before this present Age comes to an end. Firstly, the full Gospel of the Kingdom of God will be preached in all the world as a witness to all nations. Secondly, the earth will suffer a horrific judgement called the Great Tribulation, which will last for three and a half years. It will involve worldwide cataclysmic events and result in the earth's population being decimated.
The Fourth Age will finally come to an end when Satan is bound and confined to a pit, which is his prison for a thousand years, to prevent him deceiving the nations during Christ's Millennial Kingdom.
