Prophecy Recap

Once in a while I feel a need to take it from the beginning for newcomers.


There is a Three-In-One God, who is above all things, before all things and after all things.  Colossians 1:17,  John 1:1-18 (among many many others)

God created everything.  Genesis 1:1

People are wicked to the core, our best is filthy before His HOLINESS, we were dead and all are condemned.  Genesis 6:5, Isaiah 64:6, Romans 3:23Romans 6:23, Eph 2:1-10.

God chose us, God loves us, God is patient and God made a way to reunite us.  Romans 5:8, 2 Peter 3:9, John 3:16

----

300 prophecies were given about Christ.  He fulfilled them all.  Perfectly. Odds of this - beyond astronomical.  Link  Video

Jesus scolded and encouraged that we should pay attention and see the signs:

Genesis 49:10

John 3:10-12 (HCSB)

“Are you a teacher of Israel and don’t know these things?” Jesus replied. “I assure you: We speak what We know and We testify to what We have seen, but you do not accept Our testimony. If I have told you about things that happen on earth and you don’t believe, how will you believe if I tell you about things of heaven?

Matthew 16:2-3 (HCSB)

He answered them: “When evening comes you say, ‘It will be good weather because the sky is red.’ And in the morning, ‘Today will be stormy because the sky is red and threatening.’ You know how to read the appearance of the sky, but you can’t read the signs of the times.


----

Just as Christ's first coming was predicted, prophesied and fulfilled, so is His second coming.

He scolded the Biblical scholars of during His time on earth, for failing to see.  In the same way He instructs us to see:

Hebrews 10:23-25 (HCSB)

Let us hold on to the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. And let us be concerned about one another in order to promote love and good works, not staying away from our worship meetings, as some habitually do, but encouraging each other, and all the more as you see the day drawing near.

Christ said He would return.  John 14:3, 1 Thess 4:13-18, Matt 24:27-31.

Just as there were 300+ prophecies of His first coming there are something like 8 times as many about what is coming or has recently been fulfilled.

Grant Jeffrey, Old Testament Prophecies

How many can you name?  We were commanded to be ready, to see the day drawing near.  Do you know what time it is or have you virtually cut the prophets out of your Bible?  Of course most wouldn't physically cut the prophecy out of their Bible, but they might as well....

--------

Side bar:   I know the objection "no one knows the day or the hour", "I should not be sitting around worried, we have our great commission".  Yes - I hear you, although point 1 - Mark 13:32 is generally misquoted and misunderstood - and point 2 you in all likely (as with most of the church) have no urgency and little to know discipling underway.

Mark 13:32, doesn't say you can't know the season or even have a pretty good idea about where we are and when He's returning.  He says you won't know the day or the hour.

-------

A particular super signs was the rebirth of Israel in 1948.  Isaiah 66:8, Matthew 24:32

Matthew 24:34 tells us those that see Israel reborn will not all die before all is fulfilled.  That was 67 years ago - we're not getting any younger.

If so many are declaring the warning, what are you doing? ------

Proverbs 22:3 (HCSB)

A sensible person sees danger and takes cover,
but the inexperienced keep going and are punished.

------

Many want to live in fear.
Many just want every sign so they know how much of this mission field they can get out of and not be bothered with.

Few, very few are spurred on to love and good deeds, being diligent, making the most of every opportunity.

------

Besides the super sign of Israel's rebirth, we see many other major signs.

Isaiah 17, Jeremiah 49, Psalms 83, Zechariah 14 and many other signs are taking shape.

The Arab Spring.
The upcoming economic collapse.
The move towards global community and governance (tower of babel thinking).
Israel a burdensome stone.
Israel surrounded.
Armies of the North (Russia, Turkey, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon) coming against Israel, with the armies of the South in opposition (Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Ethiopia, Libya, Qutar, Tunisia, etc...).

For the most part this blog is about the last chapter and the signs that are unfolding, from the Luke 21:11 severe winters (Syriatic version-Eastern orthodox) to the first and bird deaths predicted in Hosea - and scores of others.

The Spirit of Anti-Christ is here.

The False Prophet appears to be on stage.

The Earthquakes are shaking.

Volcanoes erupting.

Tsunami's swelling.

Fires erupting.

Polarization, divisiveness, hostility, mistrust and conspiracy.

Riots.

The Harbingers are everywhere.

Be warned.

If  you are sealed and safe in Him - smile already.  Go tell someone the great and glorious news - we who believe are leaving.

Tell someone.

Take someone with you.

Even so Maranatha - Lord come quickly.
