Trust Biblical Prophecy
God must have wanted His followers to learn Bible prophecy, because He dedicated almost 30 percent of His Scripture to it. Not only does prophecy teach us about future events, it also assures us that God keeps His promises.
Prophecy is not so difficult. During the past three decades there has been a dearth of Prophecy teaching in both our seminaries and our churches. Seminary professors educated in secular graduate schools were often humiliated by their humanist professors for believing “the fundamentalist approach” to scripture. Taking the bible literally was ridiculed, and these students were led to believe that prophecy was confusing and difficult to understand,
Anyone can understand the major events of Bible Prophecy if they spend a little time comparing Scripture with Scripture with their own life events of history and in their own life events of today. “When the plain sense of Scripture makes sense, seek no other sense, but take every word at its primary, literal meaning unless the facts of the immediate context clearly indicate otherwise”. Fr. David Cooper.
The historical effects of prophecy properly taught emphasizing the “imminent” return of Christ has proven to be one of the most spiritually motivating forces in history. The teachings of prophecy has challenged believers to holy living in an unholy age, it has given Christians a greater challenge to evangelize, and it has caused the church to be more missionary minded as the church has realized it must fulfill the great commission before Christ returns, either individually, secular or as a worldly movement.
The four events of history; each of the most significant events in history has marked the end of age, each age of coming, three are past, one is yet to come. All were titanic conflicts between God and Satan for the devotion of mankind, all left a significant impact on the generations to come.
Creation, according to the first chapter of Genesis (which means “beginnings”), the creation highlights the origin of that special creature man, who is compressed of not only a body and a mind but also an eternal soul. The effects of the Fall-that is, the sin of Adam and Eve, who were created holy but used their free will to disobey God- plunged the world into sin, producing a pre-Flood population that became so wicked that God destroyed them all (the Wicked) “remember we all have choice to be part of the wicked or not”.
The worldwide flood shows how God repopulated the earth from only eight people. This event is mentioned in the literature of various peoples of the ancient world, providing compelling evidence of its truth within.
The cross the third pivotal event was the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ, remember that the Jews agreed with the Romans for Jesus to be crucified which in biblical prophecy is reasoning for the bible to be withdrawn from the Jews and given to others until the Jews could come to the absolute Truth.
The second coming according to the theoretical evidence has not come yet, but just remember the second coming can happen to us individually by the Faith we hold inside, the faith of God and his wonders.
Psalm 14:1-2 “Once found God will embrace Psalm 17:1,2,6 with his Grace and Divine Wisdom, but DO NOT LET GO, for God is the way to Truth, Truth to everything one could ever possibly need and want to know, the answer, To the Truth”.
All humankind has a choice to make to start a life of learning about our higher Father (God) or not, and stay in Satan’s name, have you made a choice?
Always remember an unexamined life is not worth living.
A wonderful man to read or listen through video
Joseph Koterski, S.J.
(Fordham University Ph.D., St. Louis University) “Biblical Wisdom Literature, Wisdom Psalms on perseverance” The "Interludes": An Opportunity to Pause and Reflect
Interspersed throughout these lectures, Father Koterski provides moments to reflect on these teachings through his consideration of another source of biblical wisdom—the wisdom psalms. Through these "interlude" lectures, you experience the wisdom tradition in a more personal way, through the study of a selection of psalms that underscore key themes covered in each unit). Refer to Psalms 1:1,4,5,6, 17:1-15, 18:19-24, 28:1-2
