Why Study Bible Prophecy?

Why Study Bible Prophecy?

by: Darrell G. Young

  One of the most often asked questions that people ask me, and usually Christian people in fact, is why I put so much time and effort into studying Bible prophecy. On one such occasion a deacon pointed out to me that studying Bible prophecy was really a waste of time. He basically argued that it was a fruitless and pointless effort to seek to know anything about future events, because the Lord is in charge and will ultimately take care of things in his own good time anyway. Well, that may be true, but the Lord commanded us to watch for him. He wants us to be uniquely aware of the signs of the times in the last days, because that knowledge can be used to enhance the kingdom of God, and to prevent people from being deceived about things that are coming to pass in this world during the Last Days. We live in “Perilous Times, and it is incumbent upon Christ’s followers to be informed about the climactic days in which we now live. I prefer to believe that the church ought to be fully aware of the signs pertaining to the Second Coming of Jesus, so that it would never be caught in the same position as national Israel. (which failed to recognize his 1st visitation) Christians will have no excuse if Jesus should return and find us, like as Peter in the Gethsemane Garden, asleep, and therefore ignorant about the time of his 2nd visitation! (Luke 19:44 and I Peter 2:12)

  Israel reveled in the idea that they were the lawful children of Abraham, but unlike Abraham who yearned to see the coming of Jesus, the children of Israel became blinded to the greatest joy of Abraham. The Jews even took up stones to cast at Jesus for stating that he was before Abraham, and was actually greater than Abraham.

  John 8:56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my (Jesus) day: and he saw it, and was glad.

  Clearly, history reveals that Israel missed the coming of the Lord the first time. How sad that fact is! It would be sadder still for his bride (the Church) to be found ignorant about his second advent when he has given us so much information concerning it. Among Jesus last words to his disciples prior to his march to Calvary was an exhortation to watch for his return. (Mark 13:37 And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.) I often refer to this statement of Jesus as the 11th commandment. I take it seriously, and I fervently believe that we are living in the generation that is indeed witnessing the signs for the 2nd coming of the Lord.

  The prophets of the Old Testament were the inspired instruments sent by the God of Israel (Jacob) to speak to his people warning them of their departure from his Law and his ways. As God's model nation, Israel was to set the example for the rest of the world of what a Holy People should look like to outsiders. When there was significant deviation from God's intentions for Israel, he spoke to his people through the prophets. The prophets warned of impending consequences for persistent failures on the part of the king, the priests and the people. They also spoke of the certainty of Israel's long term future, of her coming Messiah and of the Messiah's eventual reign over Israel and the whole world from the throne of his father David in the city of Jerusalem. The predictions of the prophets regarding Israel and the surrounding nations have in times past been fulfilled with minute accuracy, and yet there is much more to come in the days that lie just ahead of us in these very days.

  • 63 times in the Bible, the Lord is quoted using the phrase, “it shall come to pass.”
  • 116 times in the Bible, the Lord is quoted using the phrase, “in that day.”
  • 2304 times in the Bible, the Lord begins an action phrase with the words, “I will” and proceeds to announce something that he will either immediately or ultimately bring to pass.

   Thus it is immensely beneficial for all Christians to rightly discern the study of Bible Prophecy. Yet the study of Bible prophecy in today’s churches is the most maligned and neglected area of Bible study. Most churches never mention any prophecy-related subject material, and therefore most congregations are completely ignorant of its significance.

   The absence of prophecy study in modern churches is a staggering defeat for every individual Christian, and an incalculable “biblical-world-view and spiritual loss” within the Christian community. When I reflect on the fact that Revelation 22:19 mandates that no one should ever dare “take away” from the prophetic word, I shudder in horror at the consequences for our churches and pastors when they neglect to share God’s prophetic word, but instead choose to leave it unmentioned, and hid in the closet! Satan couldn’t do a better job of taking the prophetic word away himself! (the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy: see Revelation 19:10) The study of Bible prophecy is commonly known in professional circles as the science of eschatology, and while it may be difficult to understand in some areas, and there may be topics that tend to bewilder us, the fervent study of the Biblical prophetic record remains an invaluable and irreplaceable resource. John the Revelator conveyed the promise of God that the avid studious devourer of prophecy would receive a special blessing from the faithful pursuit of studying the signs for the imminent return of Jesus Christ. (Revelation 1:3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.)

   Therefore, I shall offer several reasons why today’s Bible student should endeavor with all due haste to study prophecy.

   #1…. Prophecy Reveals the Absolute Sovereignty of God
  There is only one sovereign ruler in the universe. Handel’s “Messiah” says it plainly enough; “And He shall reign forever and ever”! Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

Satan has conspired to dethrone the God of the universe and seat himself above the stars of God (Isaiah 14) with his Antichrist (II Thessalonians 2) on the throne in Jerusalem. But prophecy reveals that the great I AM, Jehovah God is still sovereign and still reigns, and will soon put down Satan’s cosmic rebellion of evil. Satan would like to have the world believe that he is a victorious god, but in reality, he has already been defeated and is sentenced to destruction.

   Revelation 11:15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

   Psalms 146:10 The Lord shall reign forever, even thy God, O Zion, unto all generations. Praise ye the Lord.

   The grandest scene within the prophetic scope of The Revelation record is the majestic view of almighty God’s heavenly throne, high and lifted up, with the saints and hosts of all the ages gathered around before him, casting their crowns at his feet, giving glory and honor to the one almighty Sovereign God. Heaven remains God’s throne while the earth and the nations will become his footstool. (Isaiah 66:1; Matthew 5:35; Acts 7:49) Satan would like nothing better than to hide prophecy and keep the world blinded to the reality that God is still the royal sovereign ruler of the entire universe.

   #2…. Prophecy Verifies the Bible as God’s Absolute Word
   Prophecy is God’s signature on world history, and on the future of the world. It should be no surprise that the Holy Bible is the only religious book in the whole world with even a word of prophecy. Prophetic content would tend to expose any impostor for no man or being outside of an all-knowing, omnipotent, and eternal God could foretell all of human history before it came to pass. Only an alpha and omega Creator-being could possibly possess the wherewithal to pre-record an outline of world history from beginning to end. (Isaiah 42:9 Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.) Any reader can review the historical prophetic trail of the Bible and analytically ascertain that its author can be no other than God! If the Bible contained a single false prophecy about past history, the Bible and God could be counted as forgery, and its content relative to future events would be utterly meaningless. Revelation 22:13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. And if God could be typecast as a failure in the immensely critical field of prophecy, what value would any of his word be?

   #3…. Prophecy Brings Comfort/Consolation to the Christian
   In our modern geo-politically complex and heavily armed militaristic world, there is a growing international sense of turmoil and anxiety, and it is only the Bible along with its prophetic assurances that conveys any hope for tomorrow. The Armageddon syndrome is a very worrisome scenario for today’s nations, their leaders and diplomats. So often I hear people make the following remarks; “the world just can’t go on much longer the way that it is going,” and “whatever is this world coming to.” Well my friends, Bible prophecy has the answers to each of these questions, and for the Christian, it is all good news! Possessing a prophetic knowledge and wisdom about the perilous times of the Last Days always brings additional comfort and blessing to every believer. In fact God has exhorted his followers to be “comforted in their hearts” and to encourage fellow believers as they observe the signs of the times, and the approaching Day of the Lord. (Hebrews 10:25)

   Titus 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing (rapture) of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ;

   1 Thessalonians 5:9-11 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.

   1 Thessalonians 4:15-18 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.

   II Thessalonians 2:13-17 But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle. Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, Comfort your hearts, and establish you in every good word and work.

   #4…. Prophecy Arms the Believer Against False Prophets
The Bible unequivocally indicates that the last days would witness an exponential explosion of false teaching and false prophets in the world. God has forewarned us to be alert to this type of supernatural and religious deception. The prophetic word of God is designed to convey enough information about the last days so that the believer can be enabled by the Holy Spirit to “gain strength from its study” (the opposite of the chalepos snare of Satan / see Perilous Times Shall Come) for enduring the onslaught of evil and perversion as the Church begins to fade in power during the latter days. (rapture/falling away) On the other hand, Satan is continually increasing his strategy of religious deception by sending forth many false teachers and also by castigating and polluting the prophetic message, by devaluing, and even obstructing the doctrinal study of Biblical prophecy. Sadly, too many churches and preachers are allowing him an easy victory in this demonic conspiracy.

   Luke 21:8 And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.

   I John 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

   II Timothy 4:2-4 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

   1 Timothy 4:1-2 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;

   II Peter 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.

   #5…. Prophecy Purifies the Hope/Life of the Believer
   What could possibly excite the heart and soul of a believer more than the prospect of imminently meeting with Jesus face to face at any moment! The idea of meeting Jesus Christ via the Rapture at any moment should also cause every Christian to lead a sober and vigilant life as he sees the Day of the Lord nearing. Oh yes, this world can be a dark and lonely place many times for a Christian, and as we move further along into the perilous times of the Last Days, it may often seem to be a hopeless world. But for the ardent prophetically knowledgeable Christian, the ominous prevalence of the signs of the times only serves to further intensify the brightness of the Christian spiritual lamp.

   1 Peter 1:6-8 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:

   1 Peter 4:12-13 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.

   I John 3:2-3 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.

   #6…. Prophecy Promotes Evangelism
   I cannot think of anything that emphasizes and promotes the urgent need of spreading the good news of the Gospel more than possessing a keen knowledge of Bible prophecy. In our modern church world, we like to rely on special programs and worship techniques, or religious celebrities to promote evangelism, but properly utilized nothing can spawn evangelism like spiritual adeptness in Bible prophecy. Prophecy allows the Christian to foreknow that the age of Grace will soon elapse, and that the allotted time for the Church to minister in this world is drawing to a close.

   Acts 3:20-21 And he shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.

   #7…. Prophecy Builds & Strengthens Faith
   The prophetic word enhances the scriptural foundations upon which our faith rests. It conveys assurances and emboldens the spirit of every believer. The prophetic word uniquely demonstrates that we do not look for Christ in vain, but that every word that pertains to his Second Coming and to the establishment of his kingdom are legitimate. Prophecy infuses deeper spiritual strength to the believer as he watches, and contemplates the multitude of the signs-of-the-times as they come into play in world events.

   II Peter 1:16-21 For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty. For he received from God the Father honor and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount. We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.

   #8…. Prophecy Reveals God’s Providential Plan
   The Lord created the world and set time and history in motion. Many people may think that he has left off attending to the happenings in the world, but in reality he is overseeing and working through all the affairs of mankind to perform his providential plan of the ages. The mystery of the Ages (Romans 16:25-26, Colossians 1:17, I Corinthians 2:7, Ephesians 3) is being brought to pass in God’s good time, and prophecy conveys the signs pertinent to all of the ages, and points to the close of this present age, (Age of Grace-Church) and to the beginning of the Millennial kingdom Age!

   Ephesians 1:9-10 Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: That in the dispensation of the fullness of times he might gather together in one all things in Christ, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:

   Revelation 10:7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.

   #9…. Prophecy Strengthens Our Patience
   Many people become underzealous in thier attitudes about prophetic study and lose sight of its vitality because it entails so much of history, and thus they fail to comprehend the signs of the times pertaining to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ because they do not properly understand the providence of God. They become agnostics, or scoffers, and view Bible Prophecy as just an old worn out folktale or as stories of Church legend that have no immediate impact. Many Christians become irritated by the prophetic message because they lack the longsuffering of Christ, who is not willing that anybody perish. Many Christians become disillusioned and begin to question the value of prophecy, and finally to question the sure promises and absolute landmark signs of the Second Coming because in their minds it has taken too long. They easily succumb to a pessimistic spirit about prophecy, and also risk becoming open to demonic deception about the message of prophecy. (II Peter 3:3-4 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.) Little do they realize, but they lend credence to the absolution or hiding of God’s prophetic words!

   1 Peter 1:13 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ;

   II Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack (slow or tarrying) concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

   James 5:7-8 Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold, the husbandman waiteth for the precious fruit of the earth, and hath long patience for it, until he receive the early and latter rain. Be ye also patient; establish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.

   Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

   #10… Prophecy Alerts us to the “Signs of the Times
   Without the Lord’s conveyance of Bible prophecy, we would have absolutely no idea how close we might be to the Day of the Lord. We really would have good reason to question the promise (II Peter 3:4) of his coming. Bible prophecy is like a roadmap. It has historical features strewn all along its pathway to convey to the world traveler where he is along the highway of world/human history. We can use 20/20 hindsight to observe the landmark events in history and then use the prophetic word of the Bible to find them in God’s overall scheme of the Ages. We can also use the 20/20 prophetic vision of God to anticipate the coming events in our world, and also derive from our indwelling spiritual sensitivity (Holy Spirit) critical prophetic data pertaining to the Last Days. The Last Days are slated for only one generation in history (time for Jesus 2nd coming/rapture) and only that particular generation can be acutely sensitized to its imminence with a sense of urgency. That generation is unquestionably alive today and together with the overall scheme of Bible prophecy has always been providentially connected with the rebudding of the nation of Israel. The “signs of the times” pertaining to the last days are presently, and for the first time in history, exponentially exploding right before our eyes! The ardent watching prophecy student, unlike the hypocrites should be able to discern the ”signs of the times.”

   Matthew 16:3 And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times?

  • Unfortunately, according to recent (2003) Barna Research data conducted on adult Christian awareness of the “signs of the times,” only 4% of preachers, and only 2% of church members considered Bible prophecy as being a significant area of spiritual engagement! Bible prophecy lagged way behind other areas such as teaching, leadership, shepherding, encouragement ministries, outreach, administration and maintenance, worship, service and finances, and public relations as being the most vital areas for Church related priorities. These statistics reflect why our generation is so ignorant about prophecy in relation to current events.

   #11… Prophecy Highlights His/Our Victory
  Prophecy highlights the fact that through Jesus Christ’s victory over Satan, we shall also live and reign with him forever. Death and Hell hath no dominion over us! Jesus return to this world will usher in the long awaited Kingdom of glory and righteousness. As Christians we are presently acting as God’s holy ambassadors to this world. While the world may hate us because of that fact, the Lord will soon recall his ambassadors to this world as he prepares to destroy his enemies, and make the world his footstool.

   I John 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

   Revelation 5:9-10 For thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

   Revelation 11:15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

   Romans 6:8-9 Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.

   Isaiah 32:17-18 And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever. And my people shall dwell in a peaceable habitation, and in sure dwellings, and in quiet resting places;

   #12… Prophecy Reveals Satan’s Final Defeat
   The prophetic word of God deals not only Satan’s defeat at the cross, but goes further to reveal that Satan is destined to bound in chains and cast into the bottomless pit for one thousand years. Satan is not going to run hap-hazzardly across the world landscape for much longer. His time is short! We need not to fear the wiles of the Devil! He is doomed, and although he would like to keep that fact hushed and incite further rebellion, prophecy foretells of his ultimate fate. He is biggest loser in all of history! Today as the nations of the world conspire together to encircle Jerusalem and Israel, prophecy conveys that Satan’s evil scheme is only setting a trap for all the unrighteous! God will soon judge the nations for their complicity with Satan and his Antichrist and rebuke them all.

   Revelation 20:1-2 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,

   Revelation 20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

   Romans 16:20 And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.

   Revelation 19:15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

   #13… Prophecy Exposes Satan’s Plan
   Satan is conspiring together with the nations of this world firstly to deny Israel a place among the nations, and then secondly to deceive Israel into a false covenant with him. Satan desires to be worshipped as God, and will utilize the Antichrist to effectuate that occasion. Satan’s plan is to seat his Son of Perdition on a throne in the city of Jerusalem inside a rebuilt third Jewish Temple. Prophecy exposes the entire historic and Last Days scheme of Satan to destroy the children of Israel and to supplant Jesus Christ on his rightful throne in the city of Jerusalem.

   Isaiah 14:12-14 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

   II Thessalonians 2:4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.

   #14… Prophecy Eliminates Fear & Ignorance
Prophecy eliminates any real reason for fear and trepidation while we live in this evil world. It can bring consolation to the soul of every Christian even as we observe the fiery trials and evils that are coming upon the world. Prophecy gives a blessed assurance to the reader and hearer of the prophetic word. (Revelation 1:3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy,) Over and over again when teaching about the signs of the Last Days and the perilous times that will engulf our world as Satan makes his final onslaught against the Church and finally against Israel, God uses the phrase; “I would not have you to be ignorant concerning these things.” (see Romans 11:25; I Thessalonians 4:13; II Peter 3:5,8; II Corinthians 2:11) Above all else that prophecy does for us as we watch and study the signs of the times, most of all it relieves us of fear, and replaces abject ignorance with confidence, hope and excitement!

   Hebrews 10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

   The very word "prophet" suggests a cause, or reason to SHINE! It is derived from a Greek root (phet) which means, "to cause to shine," and is linked with the prefix "pro" which means "before." Thus a prophet or prophecy is that which stands before, and causes the word of God for the Last Days to literally shine, before it even comes to pass. Holy Spirit inspired speakers and writers of prophecy are known as “prophetes”or “propheteia.” Prophets are no longer a functionary of God to this world. Prophets were utilized of God to deliver his message before the manifestation of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ was the Last Prophet! All the New Testament prophecies were expositions on Jesus Christ’s, revelations whether they were in person or through “The Revelation!”

   Hebrews 1:1-2 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;

   Why study Bible prophecy? I think that these 14 reasons should enlighten people as to why we should study the Bible thoroughly to understand the prophetic word. Someone has estimated that the Bible is one/third prophetic in its content. If that ratio is anywhere near to being accurate, then why doesn’t it get the needed attention that it deserves, and why not today? Could it be that there is a force in our world today that doesn’t want that “Before Light” to Shine?

   We have a “cause today” to let the LIGHT of prophecy SHINE!
   That cause is the soon return of Jesus Christ!
     The night is far spent, and behold the Day of the Lord is at Hand……………..

  Revelation 22:10 And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.

  Isaiah 42:9 Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them. )

  Isaiah 46:9-10 Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:

  Romans 13:11-12 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.
