    "And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for to day I must abide at thy house."

    The "Glad Tidings Age" is probably referring to the period from the Lord's first coming in the flesh, in which He gave up Himself for us on the cross, and then rose from the dead; to the end of the age at His second coming in power and great glory. We are commissioned by Him to be His witnesses and ambassadors of the Good News of our salvation; we are not to be entangled in the things of this life
