Why Prophecy?

Let's look at Revelation 22:l3...'I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.' And, then, the Word goes onto tell us in Revelation 22:20...Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. We, at the end of the Bible's whole saga ends with His people looking for him.

A lot of us question whether prophecy is even important. We have to consider that 25% of the Word was prophecy when it was written. It is a large portion of scripture. God speaks into the future.

We, also, see that the Lord is prophetic through Rev. 22:l6..'I, Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star. And, finally at the very end of scripture, the Lord says..'And the Spirit and the Bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say Come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.' So, we end this saga with us looking for Him.

It is important to realize that all 66 books of scripture is the message of man's fallen nature and the redemption of Jesus Christ and his coming at the end of the age to restore what was lost in the Garden of Eden when man sinned. And the message through the Bible is that we are separated from God by our sin...that Jesus came to do what we could never have done for ourselves. He died so we could be forgiven. He was resurrected. He ascended into Heaven and He promised that He was coming again. We believe we are the very generation that is going to see the coming of Jesus.

So,why study Bible Prophecy at all? If you want to know what the future holds and who holds the future, the only reliable source of the future is the Word of God. In God's narrative, He chose the prophetic to let us know and see the future through the scriptures. He could have chosen many different ways but He chose this way to reveal His plan of redemption throughout the Bible.

One interesting thing is most preachers don't particularly like talking about Bible Prophecy. They may make a reference as to the coming of Jesus, etc. But, many times, they just decide to ignore Bible Prophecy. For if their congregation wanted to start getting into a in depth study of prophecy, the pastor would not be willing to teach on the subject. But, the pastors are obligated to teach so people will know what is coming. We can't just pick and choose. We can't just jump over the subject because the fact is, you will be overlooking over 25% of the Bible. Besides, the Bible won't make any sense if we don't get into Bible Prophecy. Now, we are not advocating that you study prophecy all the time; but, that we have an open mind concerning it.

Here are seven things that Bible Prophecy does for us...

  1. A study of Bible Prophecy proves the existence of God.

  2. Bible Prophecy proves Scripture and Creation.

3) Proves the Divine Origin of Scripture.

    1. Prophecy proves that Jesus is coming again.

    2. Bible Prophecy motivates believers.

    3. Bible Prophecy promotes your faith and makes you go out and witness to others about the

goodness of God and creates a passion to live a godly and holy life.

      1. Prophecy proves that Jesus is coming again.

And, imagine this...that in every 30 verses of the Bible that there is mention in some way about Christ's return, l09 scriptures in the Old Testament were given..For Example..where Jesus would be born, His virgin birth, and so on. But in the New Testament, there are written three times the prophecies are given about the return of Jesus. One out of every 30 verses in the New Testament mentions the return of Jesus Christ.

If you haven't been introduced to Bible Prophecy, perhaps, begin to look into it yourself. If you have been an avid student of Bible Prophecy, we admonish you for you studying the Word in depth.

Prophecy is exciting. We hope we have given you good reasons, 'Why Prophecy?'
