Prophecy: where the crossroads of world events and the Bible meet

What incredible times we live in – like no previous generation. The convergence of Biblical prophetic signs affects every person alive today. We should be reading the Bible in one hand and the news in the other. Get to know Daniel 9, Psalm 83, Isaiah 17, Jeremiah 49, Ezekiel 38 and 39, Matthew 24, Luke 17, the book of Revelation, also all the Old Testament passages about the millennial reign of Jesus Christ as King. Things are not falling apart; they are falling into place. Twenty-seven percent of the Bible was prophetic at the time it was written. 109 separate and distinct Old Testament prophecies were fulfilled to the detail by our Lord Jesus Christ in His First Coming. This precise fulfillment of prophecy is our assurance that all the prophecies regarding His Second Coming will also be fulfilled completely to the last detail. Jesus Christ taught prophecy. Others in the New Testament like John, Paul, Peter, James, and Jude did also. Jesus said in Matthew 16:3 “…Do you know how to discern the appearance of the sky, but cannot {discern} the signs of the times?” We can understand “the times in which we live” through the lens of the Bible. Isaiah 46:10,

“Declaring the end from the beginning, And from ancient times things which have not been done, Saying, ‘My purpose will be established, And I will accomplish all My good pleasure.’” Prophecy attracts us to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and gives us hope, inspires us, motivates us, and gives us comfort. Revelation 1:3 (NIV) says “Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near.”
