Repent! (or About Turn!) & GO!Into the world go,
With the Spirit be aglow,
cause the Church to grow!
And Jesus said unto him...
And no man having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.Luke 9.62
Having now studied this brief overview of fulfilled prophecy, and considering the relationship between the prophecies and the gospel truths regarding their fulfillment, it should now be recognized that a literal interpretation is practiced, using the principle known as Occam's Razor.
"And what crowns it all is that it was foretold, so that none could say that it was the effect of chance"
Moving on, we need to do a 180° turn, learning from the past, Praising God for historical truths, but now to be more concerned about, and interested in the future!
"We should all be concerned about the future because we have to spend the rest of our lives there".Charles Franklin Kettering...
Remembering that with the benefit of hindsight, we can enjoy 20/20 vision, something that foresight never can be, from a mortal perspective.
Only an eternal, omniscient God can enjoy that point of view!
Consequently, differences of opinion can occur between sincere Holy Spirit-filled bible scholars, in their own explanations and expositions regarding the interpretation of prophetic scripture.
For now we see through a glass darkly, but then face to face; now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
1 Cor. 13.12
".......Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm."1 Chronicles 16:22
It is reassuring, and important to know, that in this present age of false christs & false prophets, (Matthew 24:5-11;), Christians can be edified, educated, encouraged and filled with hope and expectation by receiving ministry from the TRUE PROPHETS of GOD.
These true prophets can be identified and discerned by the following attributes:
- An uncompromising adherence to the authenticity and infallible reliability of Holy Scripture, (2 Tim.3.16; 2 Pet. 1.19-21;).
- A personal testimony of their own assurance of salvation, demonstrating faith in the Lord Jesus Christ,(Rev. 12.11;).
- A humble servant attitude, taking no glory for themselves, but giving ALL the Glory to God!(1 Pet. 1.5-6;).
- Pointing and directing mankind to the Only way to God, proclaiming the victory won over Death, Hell and Satan at the Cross of Calvary and by the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, from the dead. (The Gospel Truth).
".......Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm."Psalms 105:15
So shall they fear the name of the LORD from the west, and his glory from the rising of the sun. When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.Isaiah 59:19
Even as the enemy... Satan, has come in like a flood, particularly through the new-age movement, humanism & hedonism, the Spirit of the Lord is lifting up His standard against him, particularly through the Prophetic ministry. Because of the Lord's wish that none shall perish (Matthew 18:14; John 3:16;) & that His word should go forth & not come back void (Isaiah 55:11;), these TRUE PROPHETS recieve the divine protection of the Almighty, that NO weapon that is formed against them will prosper, (Isaiah 54:17;).
No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.Isaiah 54:17
"About the Time of the End, a body of men will be raised up who will turn their attention to the Prophecies and insist upon their literal interpretation, in the midst of much clamour and opposition"Sir Isaac Newton...
"The prophecies are to be unintelligible to the ungodly, but intelligible to those who are properly instructed"Blaise Pascal...
Prayer for guidance......in Prophetic Study
